Best Ever in the Philippines

Stayed two nights.... staff outstanding all the way around. Standard rooms are huge. Room service quick and excellent. Pool area is clean, staffed, laid out nice. The ambience is amazing and for the price it's a steal. Location makes it easy to walk to a lot stores and restaurants. Security is top notch as well. This place is ahead of 99.9% of the hotels in the US.

circles...the very best experience... as always!

last october, few days before my birthday, we've decided to have lunch at circles, makati shangrila. arrived almost 12nn and obviously, there was along cue but didn't have to wait that long coz the receptionist assured us that we shall be seated in a few and since we're only about 6 pax. we tried the sunday lunch cook out and with the price, it was just reasonable and worth it. not to mention of course, the extremely sumptuous food at circles. aside from that, there are activities as well for kids and some great musical entertainment. we wanted to stay longer because we felt really at home. with the admirable services of the male & female servers (f&b staff) who are always ready to render a big smile. soooo accommodating! but still, it wouldn't be the same without the excellent supervision of their ever reliable f&b manager, mr. ryan reyes, very consistent! mr. reyes made sure that we got the equally excellent service as well along with the rest of the customers that day! incredibly gratified tummy and happy soul! will definitely come back! highly recommended! kudos to circles!!!

Increible the worst specience of my live

Today I suffered the most incredible experience of my life. I feel cheated. When ordering a cesar salad, they put boqueronesfor anchovies. amazing and outrageous. Really is this a hotel 5 stars? Talaga?
