I decided to visit Shangri-la after reading about it. The units looked good. The grounds looked roomy. Upon checking in I found the unit we were given was an "older" mobile home that had been divided into two units. The room offered what was needed but it certainly was in dire need of being taken care of as things were quite run down. I felt the grounds were quite crowded as they fit in as many camper trailers and the like as they can. At least there is an area where it is unable to be developed easily where there are a couple walking trails. There are two pools and one of them the people there do aqua exercises almost daily as well as play water volley-ball. There are plenty lounge chairs in the sun or shade as desired. The entire grounds are clothing optional or nude whichever you choose so you can go through the day and not need to get dressed at all if you wish. The office person(s) are OK but really have no customer friendly personality, very business and curt in their manners, certainly not really making you feel welcome nor appearing like they are glad you are there.
I would give it a 1 star rating for the accommodation we were in.
I would give it a 2 - 2.5 for the grounds mostly because of the closeness of the units. For the pools, etc of that nature I would rate it higher like maybe a 4. There don't seem to be an abundance of places available for nudity that are smallish and quite costly so I try out what I can find within my budget.
