    Went on the search for some swimmers and lucky us! Everything was still on sale!! So all of the already pretty cheap clothing compared to home was even cheaper! Probably going to spend most of my time here at the shops. That's why I didn't bring many clothes with me.

    99% sure this is the shopping centre. It was the Shangri-La mall anyway.

    Highly recommended. Rooms are huge & spotless, staff are extremely pleasant. and food is second to none. I was working nightshift, so the breakfast buffet was my main meal of the day, and it left nothing to the imagination!

    Good BUT theres Some SERIOUS BAD points


    we stayed in hotel for 2 days. The Hotel is good...clean, nice modern facility...I LOVE the FOOD so much specially the room service, complete with complementary bread, water and fresh and on time.

    Great hotel...why isn't it listed on tripadvisor?


    I'm not sure why the Shangri-La isn't listed, maybe I'm blind and can't find it here, even after a search...

    Thief in the night


    I stay at this 5 star hotel expecting the best. i was treated with in differents.



    I loved this hotel. It was the BEST hotel I've ever stayed at, service was unparallel. I consider that quite a complement, since I'm from the US. I would def stay again. BEAUTIFUL.. too bad I didn't EVEN get to see the pool..

    Sheer Luxury


    One of the best, if not the best hotel I stay in on my travels to numerous destinations for both work and holidays.

    The hotel offers luxury at affordable prices in a central location for travel in and around Manila.

    Rooms are amazing, service is excellent and catering is just the best.

    Be prepared for tight security which is even more obvious since 911 for anyone entering the hotel including bag searches and sniffer dogs checking out luggage.

    One word of advice. Check bill before handing over credit card. Accuracy is not always guaranteed.

    My experience was WONDERFUL!


    I stayed here for two nights - Feb. 4th-6th - and all I can say - is that this is thee BEST hotel in Manila. My parents have stayed at the Manila Peninsula before for 2 weeks - and they commented that Shangri-la is nicer!!! (Note: they ended up staying a week longer than I) The service is outstanding, the accomodations - are SUPERB. I had an aromatherapy massage and "thalgo" facial - and they were both great! There is a TV, shower, bathtub w/ jacuzzi jets, and a toilet - IN the massage room. It's very convenient, and really well designed. The rooms are well designed too - I was impressed - and I travel a lot! The gym is excellent, and the pool is spacious, large and serene. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling on vacation to the Philippines (use the local rate if you have family there), and also if you are from the States and are traveling on business. If you have high standards like I do for hotels, then I beg you to stay here! You do not want to be miserable on your trip to Manila. The price is reasonable for U.S. standards - and they do their best there to make you feel at home, and very comfortable. There are tons of great restaurants - try Circles brunch or dinner buffet, and also dinner at Red. This hotel is also walking distance to the Greenbelt shopping area, Landmark, and Glorietta malls. No other hotel can beat this. Lastly, I felt very safe here. They have a lot of security at this hotel - inside, and outside before you enter the hotel.

    Won't be disappointed


    Stayed in January 2005

    the hotel was above our expecations. I have not been back to vist in over 15 years and so I was hesitant to stay at any hotel that was not at least rated a 5 star. But as all know, sometimes a 5 star is not a 5 star.

    I was very pleased and enjoyed ALL the hotel amenities, including the spa, exerxice room, massage(s), pool, etc. Staff were also very helpful and accomodating.

    Food at the buffett was also excellent. The only thing is that I would not book any tour thru the hotel. The same tour that my family member took, cost almost double what the other parties paid, who were at a different Makati hotel, but were on the same tour bus.

    Als0- laundry cost was outrageous,

    Other than that, I would highly recommend to anyone

    Beautiful Place!


    We were there for 2 wks in July & had a wonderful time.Beautiful,clean,classy place! Can't wait for next years vacation........

    Fabulous Hotel


    Totally enjoyed our stay there! Very clean and tastefully decorated. Comparable to, or even better than some U.S. four star hotels at less than half the price. The room was huge and the bed is bigger than a king size bed. Bathroom is magnificent, with a separate shower and tub. Wide selection (American, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino) at the breakfast buffet. Perfect place to pamper yourself......have a massage, manicure, pedicure, and more. Shopping and restaurants just across the street. Stayed there last year, going back this year.
