My boyfriend and I have returned a week a go from 10 days in paradise. Discovery Bay was everything we wanted it to be and more. Our room was lovely, our balcony looked over the rear gardens, we would often sit and watch the hummingbird and the mongoose. Our bed was the biggest hotel bed I've seen, the air conditioning...

This is a lovely hotel, very pleasant staff and lovely gardens. The beach is a t the bottom of the garden, so no long walk. Will go back. Air conditioning works and is so quiet, we've been a few places where is was broken or noisy. Afternoon tea was just fab. Chef's were very accommodating.

First things first. The staff are all helpful with ready smiles and nothing is too much effort. The hotel itself is in a quieter part of the island and judging by the decor its been there a while. I stayed as part of a group for the Cricket. My group was all men with little need for refinements. If i... More

Thank you for your kind compliments about the staff. They are an excellent team who will go out of their way to make your holiday relaxing and “hassle free”.

Visited here for a week with 7 pals whilst watching the cricket. On the plus side the location is excellent - right on the beach and in Holetown, the staff are very good and the hotel is clean and tidy. The gardens are very nice. On the negative side is that the rooms are very basic and need updating. Also... More

Great hotel in a great location. We had a beach front room, initially on the ground floor but were moved to the 3rd floor (due to water leaking from the ceiling). Our change was done immediately with help to move - so cannot fault the hotel on their great service. The rooms are spacious but was disappointed that the wifi... More

I am very glad that you found our location to be great. The hotel is situated in Holetown within walking distance to the Lime Grove Lifestyle center which has numerous top end designer shops, supermarket, banks, post office and many local bars and restaurants. The Beach Front rooms are a stone’s throw from the sea with stunning views of the... More

We had the most relaxing time, the staff are so welcoming, the accommodation basic but always clean & tidy. All public areas clean & tidy. Lovely traditional food, everything so close to hand. Lovely gardens. Perfect location on the beach but a 10 minute walk to local & designer shops. We couldn't have asked for any more. Have a laugh... More

Returned more than a week ago from 2 weeks at Discovery Bay and still missing it! No it's not 5 star but it is a charming relaxed hotel where you are made to feel so welcome. We loved the fact it didn't have that corporate feel, it's totally charming. The pool area is lovely with comfortable beds and shade if... More

Have recently returned from 2 weeks at Discovery Bay and can honestly say it was a fantastic relaxed location. No problem with sunbeds on the beach or poolside.Sunbeds by pool fantastic and comfortable, not so on beach.In fact sometimes in was like our own private pool. All staff were very friendly and gave a personal service, must mention Damien, Samantha,... More
