My young family and i had our first mini vacation since the pandemic hit. It was the first time my 1 year old daughter had been out since she was born during the pandemic so this was an exciting, as well as anxious, time for us. Anxious due to it being the first time we were out with our babies and that we had to ensure our surroundings to be disinfected as best as we can. So we had to ask our 2 helpers to accompany us on this trip. Before the trip, we were informed by Shangri-La that they have strict limits of persons inside 1 room; they only allowed 2 adults and 2 kids at most. My wife, myself and 2 babies were already counted as 4, no matter if our younger is still small at 1 year old. We checked in before lunch, had lunch at the Lobby Lounge restaurant of Shangri-La and my parents-in-law came to Shangri-La to play with their grandkids and joined us for dinner at the Cowrie Cove. They came to Shangri-La to also drive home the 2 helpers after dinner so we would comply with the strict 4 person limit Shangri-La has. After dinner, as we all went back to the room, a person from customer relations called to remind us of the 4 person limit. As my parents-in-law were leaving with the 2 helpers, our 1 year old and toddler were starting to cry due to their attachment to their nanny and didn't understand why they were leaving. We tried our best to reason and pacify them before the nannies left but it was hopeless at that point so we decided to let 1 of the nannies stay secretly which was our mistake. Morning came and we all had breakfast at Tides since the room only came with 2 free breakfast for 2 adults, we readily paid for the nanny's breakfast. On a side note, the selection was great but Shangri-La maintained their usual breakfast rate. At lunch, we patronized Shangri-La yet again by dining in their Lobby Lounge before checking-out (our request for late check-out was denied). At the check-out counter, as i was settling my bills. The front desk staff missed to charge the lunch we just had as it was too recent so i told her to include it into my bill which she was grateful for. In the middle of checking my Golden Circle number while settling my bill, there was a sudden loud impatient knocking on the glass partition (similar to a bank teller's cgae) that Shangri-La had installed during the pandemic. The manager, Veronica, as she identified herself, was calling out my family name as she was persistently knocking on the glass partition. She then proceeded to berate me on why I hadn't informed them of my nanny staying over, she did this in a condescending tone which i can only compare how a teacher would scold a young kindergarten student. Before I could say a word to apologize and explain my side of the story, she simply turned her back and walked away. I was clearly at fault here but I think an establishment in the hospitality business, especially during pandemic, should've and could've handled it more professionally. And to think, this is not some run-in-the-mill hotel, this is supposedly Shangri-La. My family and i are no strangers to what Shangri-La offers that is why we chose to stay in the Shangri-Las in Hong Kong and Taiwan when we traveled before. Even though we only traveled once/twice a year and in no way are we frequent travelers or regulars, we always chose Shangri-La in spite of the high price because we always felt that they went the extra mile to make us feel welcomed before, during and after our stay. Our latest experience in Shangri-La Mactan was just the exact opposite.

Went here on a Monday to avoid the crowd but there were still a more than 2 dozens of people, but no one really bothered us or came too close so it was okay. The staff were very friendly and polite, so no complaints there. Some parts of the resort looked abandoned though, which was understandable since we're still in a pandemic. The beach was very clean and it had lots of fishes which I loved. Some of the corals were dead though, because they were too close to the shore. The food was delicious, but didn't have much variety. The prices on the menu aren't updated too. We paid 20-30 pesos more for each I think. The price of the activities are 5 times more than other resorts unfortunately. I bought my parents who were senior citizens and they didn't really enjoy it much since it was too hot and there was barely any shade near the beach. We should have gotten to those better cottages the first time, there wasn't really a lot of staff around to guide you. <.3

I will be basing this review with a pandemic in mind. During these troubling times, it's really hard to find a place just to forget it all. It's hard to believe the hospitality industry is surviving because of the pandemic. One of the best resort hotels in Cebu has found its rhythm and has enabled us to enjoy paradise safely in the midst of a pandemic. (Please do note some services we usually experience pre-covid won't be present post-covid vaccination period. E.g up-close contact with personnel like valet service.) The arrival experience was such a breeze. The only thing I really missed is the valet parking and the plenty of enthusiastic personnel that is eager enough to help you out. Check-in was safe and the front desk didn't half-ass disinfecting after she attended someone before us. Rooms were what you'd expect with a world-renowned resort hotel chain. The problem is some lighting fixtures didn't work. But that's really not a deal-breaker though. Throughout our stay, we opted not to have our room cleaned by having the Do-Not-Disturb (DND) switched on. The food was good at best as of the moment. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss the hustle and bustle of foodservice every time you step into one of the great restaurant selections they have. We felt we can't really give a fair enough review with just a very limited selection. The service is as accomodating as you can get though. The thing that tops everything is how tranquil and safe the resort is. It really felt like we had the place all to ourselves with all the social distancing and protocol. And that really okay for now. Shangrila Cares is what they promise during these troubling times. And I can wholeheartedly agree, they truly care. We Will really be back once we beat this pandemic altogether,

My overall stay was really amazing! Fantastic experience from the service staff especially Klerk the bartender he's really friendly and knowledgeable about cocktails and drinks. Bed was really comfortable, check in was fast and smooth. Best experience I ever had! Thanks a lot! (This hotel was recommended by a filipino friend of mine) Really good experience!
