Changeover from the Hyatt to New World seems to have been smooth overall. No new investment in terms of the infrastructure though! New carpets, new furniture, especially the beds and chairs, badly needed. Towels are fraying also. New owners/managers need to spend some money quickly for upgrades not just in rooms but nearly everywhere. Fumigation should be considered soon as well as a real cleaning and sanitization of the shower area.

Short version: 4+ star resort in the heart of the Philippines. Longer version: We are from the US, but my wife is originally from the Philippines. Took the extended Filipino family to Shangri-La for a family vacation. Our suite was wonderful - gorgeous views and very comfortable. Staff was excellent and very friendly. The resort was crowded because of a holiday week for Japan (first week in May), so check ahead to see if there is any "surge" from other countries they are expecting. I would rate it 4 stars in comparison to other resorts in the US, and 4+ stars in Asia. Would we go back - yes, we would. Cuisine was excellent, the entire facility was a big hit with the kids.

The food was excellent, in fact never bothered to dine anywhere else. Friendly and helpful staff. The music from bar is loud , from about 1000 until 0130, but was aware of this fact before I booked so was not a surprise. Not sure it would be any different anywhere else as the whole beach comes alive after dark. The only issue was with transportation. We arranged transportation through Hotel but upon arrival could not find van, our flight was delayed for 2 hrs maybe that was problem, anyway caught taxi for less money with no delays.
