Luxurious, stunning, and insanely child friendly is how I would describe the Shangri-La Mactan. With an abundance of facilities, decadent rooms with a view, and tempting eateries, you pretty much never have to leave. The kids loved the private beach complete with clear blue waters, plenty of sea life, clean sand, and exciting water sports. The abundant pools featured shallow ends and impressive fountains and slides for all ages. Even if the rain hits there are spacious indoor play areas to keep the little ones busy. We loved indulging in chocolate themed afternoon teas, and spent long evenings gorging on seafood at Cowrie Cove and sipping cocktails at the oceanfront bar. We felt spoilt every step of the way and were so happy to keep the whole crew occupied. Ideal for families looking for an escape.
