My family had a wonderful time at Plantation Bay. It kept us busy for the three days we were there. There's something for everyone, and I was even able to catch the paddleboard yoga class. A very kid friendly place, highly recommended for families with young kids. Atmosphere was very wholesome, most guests were families and honeymooners. Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. Food is a bit on the pricey side, but I think it was worth it :-) they have a nice selection of kids meals at kilimanjaro kafe, which I myself enjoyed (esp the grilled peanut butter sandwich with bananas in caramel syrup). The view from our room (lagoon view) was amazing both during day and night. :-) overall, we had a very good time in this place, hassle-free. Thank you Plantation Bay!
Stayed 5 nights with my wife on summer vacation. It was the great stay due to staffs hospitality.
Always smiling and put there effort to answer to any requests.
Beautiful beach, clean spa &vgym also made our stay enjoyable.
If I suggest the points to improve, sound proofs on room door, little more pressure on room shower, and more Philippine taste on breakfast buffet will make the stay more comfortable / enjoyable, but these are minor points compared to the great hospitality by well trained staffs.
I will definetely use Shangri-La again.
I was assisted by the manager herself and got upgraded to a beach front room.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Very simple and comfortable.
I thought I will be charge extra for checking out very late but no, I was given more time.
When I checked out, I was assisted by the manager herself again.
It was a very good experience. I would come back again with friends.
We spent a total of 6 nights at this hotel over a 10 day period. The first room was a suite. The second was an upgraded King room. The wifi for the executive suite was non existent. The wifi was much better in the second room. The breakfast buffet is quite good.. A blend of "east meets west". The staff is friendly and gracious. There is always room for improvement. The facilities at the casino are lackluster, at best. All in all, it was a pleasurable experience.
Friendly staff, great location right on the beach. Nice facilities and all in working order. There are nice restaurants both within the resort and close by, within walking distance. I will definitely be going back.

We returned to Crimson to celebrate our 1st anniversary after we spent our honeymoon here last year and were not disappointed! We were even given a complimentary cake to celebrate on arrival!
Everything about this resort is amazing. The Ocean View villas are very spacious and have a great view. The private plunge pool is a great addition.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful.
We ate at all of the restaurants and room service during the week. Prices are not cheap, but the quality is great and the price isn't that bad for a resort of this nature. We particularly enjoyed Azure, a new trendy restaurant/bar with a fun fusion menu and lots of cocktails!
Unfortunately, we were unable to use the best seats at Azure all week. They have loungers where you can sit and enjoy the ocean view with your food or drink, but these were always occupied by towels and half drunk drinks but no people. I had no interest in fighting for a seat so I could relax and pay Crimson lots of money for cocktails!!
Both check in and check out were quick processes made smooth and easy by the staff.
We used several of the facilities and activities during our week stay. My wife enjoyed the spa and we both enjoyed the exclusive island hopping trip and exclusive sunset cruise. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly.
All in all, this was a great place to spend a week relaxing.
We are already thinking about when our next return to Crimson will be!!

Food offering during the weekends was limited to buffet at the restaurant which was quite expensive and not very good. Drinks were pretty expensive as well. Otherwise, the facility was average. My room was ok. Bed was comfortable but the bathroom was a bit rundown. They had a nice assortment of movie channels on TV which was nice for evening time when I just wanted to relax. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Beach area was nicely maintained. And enjoyed the hammocks around the campus. Was looking to just get away for the weekend so this hotel suited my last minute needs.
Although Mactan Island houses Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB) and is connected to Cebu City by a bridge, the island may be most famous as the site where Ferdinand Magellan died fighting Lapu-Lapu. Tiny Mactan village has monuments to both leaders, and the island also features several guitar factories.
