Great location! Great amenities!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, pool, roof top bar, across from the ocean, cool design
I can be hard to please, when it comes to hotel stays. But the Shangri La exceeded expectation! I will most certainly stay there again!

This hotel's staff made me feel so welcome and were so nice

Staying at the Shangri La was like being on the ocean liner The Queen Mary. The architecture and the ocean breeze atop the rooftop bar, the amenities like the pool area 'Oasis' and the comforts of the bed were like sleeping on a cloud all made me want to stay longer and certainly come cack again. I will highly recommend to friends and colleagues. Thank you Shangri La for such a treat and special time.
