For a 'Shangri-La' I was expecting a higher quality room, but the staff made it worth every cent! The hotel is in desperate need of a make-over, however I've found that this is the case for most resorts in QLD. Don't let the 5 star fool you!
On the upside, as noted the staff were wonderful! They were aware it was our honeymoon and had arranged complimentary wine and chocolate on arrival. The girls at the front desk suggested great restaurants and in their own restaurant, they arranged a table for us in the bar section to eat dinner so my husband could watch the origin match while we ate.. Ever the romantic! The buffet breakfast was really acceptional and the location was perfect for us.
