Bar staff stood around talking and ignored you. But in saying that complained and the duty manager was ver accommodating. No umbrellas considering it being the wet season you would think they could accommodate. Breakfast was awesome and staff ver attentive.
The Shangri La is centrally located in the downtown area. The facilities were well kept, the pool was wonderful, and the bath towels were soft & fluffy. I loved the walk in shower!
It has a great Great location near the esplanade and is Kids friendly
Great service and helpful/ personable staff. Convenient location to the city centre, 10min walking distance.
This hotel exceeded my expectations, it was extremely clean, well designed, and the rooms were great! The ipad in the room was so convenient and the free on demand movies were a treat!
