Returned from another fabulous holiday at Discovery Bay, where we meet up with many old friends who return each year. Why do so many of us go to DB year after year? Quite simply; where else would you find a nice feel good hotel in a prime location on a beautiful Caribbean island at such a budget price!? Discovery Bay... More

Hotel: terrific All Inclusive value for money on the West Coast in high season. The rooms aren't fancy but they are clean & comfortable. Great showers, plenty of hot water, effective a/c - ours stopped working & was quickly attended to. Staff: really friendly & helpful, nothing was too much trouble & I could tell there was a real friendship... More

Phew!! Having read one of the recent reviews I may only imagine that we had stayed in a different Hotel. As a regular returnee to Discovery Bay, we may only comment that it's charm lies in its position on one of the best sections of the West Coast beach, the wonderful attentive staff, the exceptional all inclusive provisioning of kitchen...

Within a two minute walk to Holetown, Discovery Bay sits on the edge of a nice little beach. It is a very quiet resort with minimal entertainment two nights per week. The food is served buffet-style and is quite good, however, due to the small size of the resort the menu is somewhat limited. The guests are predominately British and... More

Returned here for 3 nights on my way back from St Vincent. I was surprised how much it had improved. The all inclusive is good and very simple offered by attentive me friendly staff. The room was fine and overall the place offers value for money. Quite old clientele but a real relaxing place on a lovely beach in Holetown... More

Barbados is an expensive destination and Discovery Bay Hotel is by no means cheap. The Rack Rate on their website for February is currently in excess of US700 nightly for a beachfront room. Kenwood travel will offer a discount and if you can contact the hotel direct further discounts are available, but their email address is not on the Rexresorts... More

Brian C, General Manager at Discovery Bay by Rex Resorts, responded to this review

The rack rate of most hotels is higher than the rates offered by Travel Agents and Tour Operators; which encourages most of our guests to reserve through a booking agency; or take advantage of the specials advertised on our website. Although every effort is made to find out flight details, it is extremely difficult, however when they are received every... More

Stayed here again from 9th to 16th December as a pre Christmas holiday. We stayed here previously 3 years ago after the resort had undergone a refurbishment. After a very long delayed flight, finally got to the hotel around 10pm. Check in was painless and was glad to be taken straight to the room as was so tired. Had a... More

The Discovery Bay is very worn, tired and despite efficient cleaning staff, who do a good job, it shows. The majority of the staff are very friendly and do their best to help, Neesha on reception was outstanding and the good value of the place makes up for a lot. However I must mention the food which can be best... More

Location amazing and the accommodation, although basic, is clean and spacious. I asked for a sea view and a high floor and got both on a rear garden view booking. The staff are more than helpful. The food is limited, with very little choice. What is available is prepared to a good standard, but only really 2 choices of either... More

Hotel was nicely situated on a west coast beach. Pleasant gardens. Nice staff. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Rooms are slightly dated. Hotel is quite expensive in High Season. Close to a high end fashion mall and small town.
