                                The quality of the hotel was high & very nice rooms. I needed a rest due to overwork & Shangri-la looked after my needs.

                                I finally had time to relax. Nice sunset bar.

                                import beer is very expensive. (about 7 euro) Not alle the rooms have a nice view. Not much to do after 10.

                                the staff, very friendly and tolerant in spite of the compalints they must have received from many people for all the ongoing renovation work

                                the noise from all the renovation work in spite of us having paid extra for a "quiet" room in the Kinabalu Wing, the scaffolding that was erected right in front of our balcony on the last day of our stay, the main restaurant (decor, acoustics and food quality), the miserly one hour duration from 5-6 pm for serving "cocktails" at the Executive Club, the complete lack of any cocktails at the Executive club (only choice was wine, G&T or vodka and orange, NB these are not cocktails!!), the lack of any snacks or cold drinks at the Executive club throughout the day except during the 1 hour cocktail period from 5-6 pm, the poor quality and choice of snacks during the 1 hour "cocktail" period at the Executive Club, etc etc

                                Clean rooms, good choice of meals in restaurants, perfect SPA

                                The reservation was made 6 months in advance to meet the New Year there. On arrival I was informed that all (!) the recreational zone is closed for reconstuction. Imagine yourself flying 9000 km to stroll around constuction area. We were offred to travel 1 hour one way to other Shagri-la to enjoy pools.

                                The serive is good.

                                Because of the renovations most things are closed i.e. the pool, the beach, some bars, the spa and the normal gym. You can get a shuttle bus to the Rasa Ria, but it is an hour long bus. It will be a great hotel when it is finished.

                                Room service is great, good private jetty, and good spa

                                The swimming pool is under renovation , but it didn't mark on Booked.net ,jacuzzi and steam room were out of service during our stay, private beach is too small.

                                Location and facilities were fantastic.

                                Not quite the relaxing time expected. Plenty of families having lots of fun and making vibrant use of all of the activities / facilities.

                                Dining area very busy and staff did not seem to be able to cope at times. Dirty plates left on tables, place settings in complete. Multiple requests for tea and coffee/bill etc

                                There was a lizard in our room.

                                The close proximity to islands and reefs. Very reasonable prices for all sporting activities. Good range of restaurants available.

                                The food prices were reasonable, but drinks were very overpriced.
