Lovely hotel but I had cash stolen from my room
I enjoyed my stay a lot in this hotel during the Covid-19 lockdown BUT I had $900 stolen from my purse during the stay. The hotel did carry out an investigation but hey couldn't find the culprit. I would recommend keeping your valuable extra safe when staying in this hotel. This is not what I expected in a 5* hotel but I was a lone female traveller staying in a very empty hotel (less than 10% occupancy) and didn't realise that I would possibly be more susceptible to these types of crimes. Overall the restaurants, rooms and pools are very nice. The downsides are that sea is not suitable for swimming in and the airport is about 4-5 hours drive away.

Shangri-La Twilight
For a resort of the caliber of Shangri-La the service was more like a business hotel where you have to carry your language into the hotel and where the attendant left you after a lift without coming to the room to explain everything. The food was no where near the status of other hotels in the same category. The concierge was not very inclined to help.

a great family stay, but very expensive
Travelled with my family, including parents and four year old daughter. Check-in service was excellent. I really appreciated their extra effort to find two rooms next to each other. My daughter loved the pool, water slides and separate kids buffet. The in resort prices are very, very high. I would only come again or recommend to family and friends if they are on a generously priced full-board package.
