Last Monday, we availed the day tour package of Shangri-la and it was indeed a Day in Paradise. We all enjoyed our stay in Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa and P2,500 per head is very worth it. Kudos to all their staff because they are all approachable, friendly, helpful and they never fail to smile at you.
After our Mactan City Tour, we went to Shangri-la Mactan to spend our last day in Cebu. Day tour package is from 8-9PM so it was perfect for our 10:40PM flight. The resort is just 20 minutes away from the airport.
There are so many tourists inside the resort and we can’t find any vacant beach chair where we could stay so we just roam around the resort and look for a place where we could wait. We decided to take our lunch first before we plunge into their pool and beach.
Finally, 12NN came and we went inside the Tides Restaurant. I zeroed in on expensive dishes, I’ve tried the lamb chop and still, I did not like it. I don't really like lamb chop, ok na ko sa beef steak. My son enjoyed his dinner roll and butter and he really likes the crème brulee and was able to finish two cups. Drinks are not included in their free buffet lunch and the cheapest drink is softdrink in can which is P184.
After our meal, it is time to enjoy their amenities.
After swimming, we took advantage of the free use of their Health Club Amenities where complimentary drinks are available. Hehe! You can use the gym, sauna, steam bath and Jacuzzi for free.
Overall, I do not have regrets in choosing Shangri-la Mactan and this is one of my memorable experiences and fabulous birthday celebration. I hope we can go back here.

When we went back to Cebu, I inquired about the Day Trip package but I was advised that they don't offer day trip package at that time. So we just went to Crimson Mactan instead.
