The resort was nice. It's far from an island paradise (there's no beach) but the food was pretty good and the staff was very nice. I would highly recommend that you not dive with the dive center there (which is not actually part of the resort). The dive center is overpriced compared to places in town and was unprofessional and... More

From the Terrace you have a great view to nearby Islands and the sunset. The room is simple, shower and toilet are separate, clean, 2 Fans and... More

I brought group of 27 people here, and we loved it! We like quiet out of the way places, so this was the perfect match for us. We were accommodated easily, yet never felt crowded. With nature all around, and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and ocean it's easy to feel you're in the middle of nowhere! it's only... More

Even though we got soaked on the boat on the way there, they made it up to us with great service, lodging and food. Island hopping tour is a must! It is a place I'd definitely recommend to friends in the future!

Our family (two kids six and four years old) stayed there 5 nights in mid of Dec 2014. Really relaxing time, stuff are professionals. We did island hopping, diving, snorkeling, relaxing on nearby island´s beautiful beaches. I forgot kayaking. Main beach is not suitable for swimming, but I think, it is not important, this place is about boat trips. Yes,... More

We went for scuba diving and it was fantastic. The WW2 wrecks were fabolous and we took the pass island tour wich was amazing specially the coral garden. The hotel was great in every aspect except it didn't have very hot water, but for me was the temperature was perfect.

All I can say is that the manager come to the complete rescue when I and a friend were trying to locate a beautiful place to propose to our better halfs. We were initially pointed in his direction whilst staying at his sons hostel not far from his restaurant. He told us about the beautiful pass island and supplied a... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Discovery Resort. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, our cottage had great sunset views and the food was good. The cottages are clean, but don't expect anything fancy. The fanciness is in the island itself and in the fact that you have your own hammock to relax in on the veranda. They organize... More

Booked this resort for a honeymoon gateway with my wife. Arrived to the hotel by boat was mislead by booking.com that this was a hotel right on the island. I was a little upset by that, taking the boat to town was a little annoying. But now about the hotel, very quiet, great staff but the food and drinks were... More
