We had high expectations of the Shangri-La Mactan and were not disappointed. The resort is large with all the facilities you would need for a vacation. Apart from a half day trip to a shopping mall we did not find the need or urge to leave the resort itself. We stayed over new year and obviously this was a peak time when the facilities were stretched, so there was often a wait to get a table at breakfast or to get a sunbed on the hotel's private beach. Nevertheless the staff on the beach were always doing their best to find spare sunbeds and parasols/cabanas for us. They have a fantastic coral reef at the beach which simply must not be missed for snorkelling. You can also try scuba diving from the beach. Jet bikes and sailing boats were also a popular activity for our family.
During busy times it's a good idea to book a table in the restaurant in advance.
The spa, although a little pricy compared to places outside the hotel, was a great experience and well worth the extra just for the whole experience and tranquility.
