“5 star hotel with 7 star services”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

To be honest , the hotel is great, staff are more than friendly , the swimming pool is suitable , we booked Two Bedroom Premiere,
but is still a little bit expensive hotel , I wish they reduce their prices
All I can say it was really a 5 star hotel with 7 star services

The suite we stayed in was very beautiful, the staff called us by our names, and the spa service was great! The bed, pillows, toiletries, robes, slippers and towels were luxurious. A few weeks prior to our Boracay vacation, we stayed in Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. It was a great and beautiful hotel. However, the stay in Discovery Shores after that was the icing on the cake!!!

The service was great, as expected in the Philippines. The location is excellent, a ten minute walk along the beach to the strip. But the design in flawed. The pool is surrounded by tall buildings giving a canyon feel and no views. The restaurants are ordinary and don't take advantage of the beach location. The entrance is designed like a freeway underpass, so that's your experience every time taking the shuttle. Overall, it's a big step up from the guest houses along the beach, but at 5 star pricing it doesn't stack up.

We stayed at Discovery Shores for 11 nights and BY FAR this place turned the trip to Boracay from good TO GREAT!

Right on the beachfront with excellent room views the staff were far and away the best we have experienced. From a friendly hello each and every day to a personalised experience several days into the journey.

The shuttle / transfers were excellent. Never had to wait and was always on demand. Perfect!

Indigo was great, a real personalised experienced with waiters just as courteous and caring as the resort staff. Further to this the recommendations for dinner was superb.

Breakfast was also a real treat and a real variety for all food types. I am a little confused to the people who say it wasn’t good as each and every day we had breakfast there and felt like royalty!

Summing up, would definitely return to Discovery Shores on our next visit. Thanks again team!

This hotel or resort was pretty nice. The rooms were roomy and clean. The decor was nice also. The bathroom,... no complaints. The breakfast was good and the service was excellent. There is a free shuttel to and from town so dont forget to take the hotels' number they will come and pick you up. The beach was well maintained and most of the garbage was cleaned daily. If you want a beach chair right by the beach go lay a towel on a chair before breakfast.

Room Tip: Get a close to the beach... dont settle for anything far.... you want easy access to the beach and r...

did not stay in this hotel since it was fully booked but dined at Indigo because we were told that it's the no.1 restaurant in Boracay....we booked for a table for two and was seated on a table for four...waiters are not well trained..served us with a different wine...mixed up our orders and the dessert was the worst thing...guyabano baked alalska, the sugar in the meringue is so raw that it felt like the boracay sand in your mouth...very pricey for a very lousy service and dinner.

Although price is a littel bit pricey, but it is worth the money you pay for. All the dishes we ordered in their resaurants are surprisingly yummy! And they have one of the best beach front in boracay- very clean and fine sand!

Room Tip: Request for the rooms in right beside the pool. It is most convenient!
