My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Discovery Shores Boracay! We've never had more courteous, attentive service, and everything exceeded our expectations. The room we had was lovely and clean, and the pandan water, treats, and foot wash received upon arrival were perfect. The beachside service was like no other! Jiggs and the whole staff go out of their way to make sure you're taken care of and happy; we couldn't be more grateful. We also tried several spa services -- highly recommend the facial if you can get one! We can't wait to go back and see all of our friends. :)

Hotel's Favorite
Discovery wasn’t just about the luxurious amenities, extremely clean rooms and facilities, free shuttle service and spacious rooms. It was all that and so much more. What I found was the best part about discovery was finding locals and employees who showed me what service from the heart was! Gen, works by the pool and refills your water once it reaches half the bottle, she gives you clean towels and folds used ones and arranges your items while you’re lounging. She is light, helpful and very cheerful. Jigs, cleans your sunglasses and offers you snacks while you chill by the beach. He also sprays Evian water when you’re tanning. He is a funny guy who is always willing to assist you with anything. Fritz, is that tall fellow you see. He’s the guard who stands by the beach to watch over your stuff. He’s great and is helpful when you need anything brought down to the beach. He can even take your picture if you’d like. He’s always one step ahead of you! Marlon and Jorgen are waiters at the beach front restaurant they’re very attentive and definitely easy to talk to. Joemar, was are night service waiter. Despite all the busy and hectic guests he was always able to spot me from all the hands popping about to order. He was great at his job and really made sure we didn’t feel that the restaurant was so busy! Lastly, Rizlie the bartender. He was great at keeping my fiancée happy. He would even give us cold beverages on the house. My fiancé and I can’t compare this hotel to anything else simply because the service they provided was remarkable. We came in with no expectations but left with a full heart, tanned bodies and wonderful memories of Discovery Boracay. I cannot wait until we get back!

The Boracay island was rehabilitated for 6 months and re-opened last 2019, and the outcome is astonishing. On the other hand, Discovery shores remained one of the top resort in the Island. From their private boat transfers between the resorts and airport to their personalised service are all worth every penny. Staffs are amazing, they treat you with respect and luxury at the same time and not only within the hotel but even to the shores. The food, ambiance, facility and cleanliness were all spot on. Our overall stay wouldn't be as memorable as it was if we have stayed somewhere else. Definitely our "home" in Boracay.

First visit and stay in 2008 was very impressive in terms of quality of room, amenities, service and food served in the outlets. Ongoing maintenance of the premises and additional outlets are to be commended. My party of 20+ enjoyed the Sunset Happy Hour spent in 360. Great drinks and apps served. Kudos to the Management.

It’s always a good feeling when you go to a place which feels like home. What better way to experience a happy summer than to stay at Discovery Shores Boracay! From the moment we got into the van from the airport, we experienced the hospitality of their staff instantly. When we got onboard the Neptune, Mayfer recognized me and the other staff were happy to greet us. When we arrived at the hotel, our GEM Angela was all smiles in helping us to checkin. Chloe also remembered me when I visited her at The Great Room. She even gave me lots of Chocnut! We got to enjoy sweet treats when we arrived in our room. Bogart the Bear was of course there waiting for us. I missed the polvoron so I had to request for it, and the kitchen was very generous to prepare it for me. Best part of the arrival experience after a busy flight? Foot scrub! Ahhh the smell of bamboo peppermint was really soothing. The dining experience at the Sands Restaurant was always gastronomic! And the service of the staff like Marian and Jorgens were great. I requested for something that’s not in the buffet table; and they did their best to accommodate me. It’s a good thing they opened the 360 Roof Lounge for all the guests to enjoy. We got to see the great sunset view on the lounge pool. All throughout our stay, the staff made sure we were comfortable. I will always come home to Boracay as much as I can. And I will never get tired of hearing the DSB staff when they greet me “Welcome Home”
