I think this will be the best description for Discovery Shores. The priority of the staff is to pamper their guests. From the moment you step out of the airport, you are greeted by very friendly staff who would guide you to their speed boats to Boracay Island. Welcome drinks, candies, foot massages, and the works. My favorite is when... More

If you want a "feel rich" vacation in Boracay, discover DISCOVERY SHORES. On arrival, the staff greets you with a warm smile and puts a green friendship bracelet on your wrist. They take care of your luggages and escort you all the way to the waiting shuttle bus to the pier and the airconditioned boat and another shuttle to the... More

As I was planning my trip to Boracay, had been checking with friends to find a good hotel and Discovery was a common recommendation. My friends and colleagues knew me very well and said I go with Discovery without doubt considering my expectations... So I did and it is with no second thoughts that I accept this as one of... More

Discovery Shores Boracay has a number of major selling points. Its location at the quiet end of Station 1, which offers an expansive beach front area; excellent facilities and amenities and of course service that is true to their mantra of being "all heart". From the airport pick-up through check in and the day-to-day interactions and services, they indeed stayed... More

One of the best beach front hotel i've stayed in. Staffs are great, they are very accomodating. I remember we checked out at the hotel to spend one more day at other station because we want to party all day. Yes we hate walking, but literally its not a long walk! The Discovery hotel staff drove us to our new... More

It was great to have stayed at Discovery Shores after visiting Boracay for a number of years now. I would usually stay in quaint and all boutique hotels and inns and keep things simple, since I would spend most of my days out on the beach, a so-so room would do it for me. But after staying at Discovery, you... More

Without question one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. From location to room to service it was pretty unbelievable. There are only 2 hotels in Borocay that you can chose if you are looking at high end which is Shangri-La and Discovery. I would say that Discovery should be your first choice. First the location is amazing.... More

Finally, excellent service has arrived in Boracay and has forced the rest of the hotels to step up their game. From the airport, the hotel brings you to the resort via private speed boat. As soon as you arrive at the resort, you are greeted with a welcome drink at the lobby. Once in the room, you are treated to... More

I stayed with a friend for a weekend when I was in the Philippines recently - arrived on the Saturday morning and left on the Monday to get back to Manila. We were met at the airport by someone from the hotel, and escorted to the minibus for a quick drive to the port. We were the only two people... More
