The hotel is totally false advertised. Shangri-la Cebu is not a "paradise" as the advertising says, but a play-land for small children. There are screaming kids everywhere. No swimming pool or areas for adults only. Even in the lounge during cocktail hours you have screaming children.
I swam every morning, it is possible until about 8:30 am, after the pools are filled with children and other beach toys. Impossible to swim or enjoy.
The staff in the lounge are super. In the rest of the hotel, the service is below average.
The hotel has no charm and is a testament to, when mass tourism at its worst. We will remember Shangri La Cebu as the most over priced place we have stayed at.
