I previously stayed in a Premier Ocean Wing Panorama Suite (via a free upgrade) and a Deluxe Sea View Room in my past two stays. The Panorama Suite is very spacious with all modern and luxurious amenities, however since the suite assigned to us before… [Read more...]
I am back in Shangri-la Mactan again and this is my third stay in the past 1.5 years. I love this place so much, it looks like my vacation here will be an annual (or a bi-annual) thing. The star of Shangri-la Mactan are truly its people. Everywhere you go, they greet you with a smile. All staffs welcome you warmly and are very caring. Evelyn, the staff from… [Read more...]
A bright sunny morning welcomed us as the plane landed in Mactan Airport. The weather is just perfect for beach bumming! I would describe Mactan Cebu International Airport as compact and efficient, we were able to disembark and pick up our luggages in less than 30 minutes time. Although the airport is a bit tired, the festive atmosphere well… [Read more...]

The beach in Shangrila… [Read more...]

Lawns are lush and well-manicured. Swimming pools are nice. I think there are 3 swimming pools, I lost count. There is always a place to sit and relax… [Read more...]
I am a super fan of buffets and have tried almost all of the 5-star hotel buffets in Manila. The buffet spread in Tides, the main restaurant in Shangrila Mactan, could easily beat them all.
The breakfast is a feast and food quality is top notch. Buffet spread is a good mix of Asian, Filipino and American. You can order coffee latte or chocolate drink for… [Read more...]
We booked a Premier Sea View room and got surprised when the front desk upgraded us to Panorama Suite for free! How cool is that. This 1 bedroom suite is huge, fancy and modern. It has a separate living room, an executive desk, a dining table, a walk-in closet, a bathroom with separate tub and shower, and a big balcony.
The view could have been lovelier… [Read more...]
