Fabulous 8.8 From 839 reviews

Fair 4.0
Not the trip I expected. As I mentioned in my checkin note, they “upgraded” me into this big and old suite with little view.
au5 night family trip
Good 6.0
Mediocre and tired.
The overall ambiance of the Shangri-La is just a bit tired and past its prime. The rooms were recently renovated and are pretty nice - despite uncomfortable, saggy single beds pushed together to make a king. But public areas really need attention. It would be a fairly decent 4 star hotel if that’s how it was marketed, but the property falls way short of true 5 star standards. The semi buffet style breakfast is chaotic and the food unimaginative. Eat elsewhere!

A great escape
We loved our 2-night stay at Shangri-La, The Marina. The hotel is in a great location, right on the boardwalk so we enjoyed lovely strolls each morning. Our room overlooked the marina which was perfect for aperitivo drinks on the balcony. Loved spending a whole day poolside, loved everything about our 2 night stay actually.
