City of Greater Geelong, Australia
Like most a torrid year of cancelled holidays. Third time lucky for Victorian family to finally make an escape. Stayed a July week at Shangri-la in their One Bedroom Suite (Rm 3007). Roomy, clean and provided with 2 rollaway beds for our tween boys. Fantastic and relaxing time. Breakfast, Club access (5 pm drinks/canapés), facilities, large pool and hospitable staff all high standard. Special mention to front desk and “technician” who kindly helped with my odd request to rescue by ladder a frisbee off bus stop roof 50 meters away. These first timers plan to return.

A lovely resort. Our room had a marina view. The room is large, and well appointed, with a sitting are and generous balcony. Staff are friendly and helpful. This resort is close to the action. It is walking distance to the marina, and local shops, cafes, and restaurants.

Room was great. Reception and concierge were prompt and professional. Breakfast buffet should have a lesser priced continental option. Concierge was very helpful and professional. Location close to the cruise ship terminal was convenient. Will definitely stay again if in Cairns

Stayed on the top floor with views of the marina from the balcony. The room had two double beds and all amenities required to make our stay comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and the shower so wonderfully big. All staff were so helpful and welcoming. We required a wheel chair for our dinner cruise as the distance from the hotel was too long for my husband to walk and there was no hesitation to supply this. One staff member pushed the wheel chair to the pier and at the end of the night just phoned the hotel and he came back with the wheel chair for the trip back to the hotel. The breakfast/restaurant facilities were really good and again, the staff absolutely wonderful and welcoming. Great holiday.

We have stayed at other hotels in Cairns, but Shangri-La @ The Marina exceeded all our expectations. It was a very memorable stay from the time we walked into the foyer on arrival until the time we left. All staff were friendly, attentive and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Our Horizon Club room was extremely well appointed and very comfortable - view from the balcony looking over the Marina was wonderful. As Horizon Club guests, we also enjoyed breakfast and nightly drinks/canapés in the Club lounge which were fabulous. We highly recommend the Shangri-La to everyone, for location, in room facilities and exemplary staff .. we were sorry to leave!
