I was at DSB in 2013 and I considered it even better than Shangri-La Boracay. When I checked in this weekend 27-29May, and I was expecting too much because of my 2013 experience. But I was sadly disappointed and because I love DSB, I hope you will bring back your excellent service which cannot be replaced with the welcome treats...

I've been to Boracay many times, even going 3 times in one summer, and this is the first time I stayed in this resort. How I wish I discovered it sooner!!! It is on the pricey side, but the excellent service makes it so much worth it! There is free shuttle which makes traveling very convenient, the staff are extra...

After serious deliberation between Shangri-La and Discovery, my wife and I booked a suite here for three nights with our two boys (ages four and two) in tow. It was ultimately the wrong choice for many reasons, with some cited here. Check-In: It took several calls and more than half an hour for luggage to get to our suite, and...

I was very much looking forward to our stay at Discovery Shores. It was peak season & we were asked to pay full in advance. Not sure if they were fully booked though. As expected service was excellent from our arrival at the airport. Airport transfers are included in the rates by the way. So you need not worry about...

Hotel staff made us feel we're VIPs except for one instance when i was asking for a folding fan and i was told by the Front Desk personnel that i couldnt have it cause it was only a "one time amenity" .

Our experience at Discovery Shores Boracay exceeded all expectations, which were already set very high. The friendliness of the staff, their service, and the beauty of the resort is astounding. Our only regret was not staying longer. We'll definitely be returning in the future.

Discovery Shores Boracay is THE MOST PERFECT resort in Boracay if you want to relax and unwind! At the same time, its location is still close enough to Stations 2 and 3 if you need to go to there (plus they have free shuttle service for those who do not feel like walking along the beach). The service was impeccable....
