Things I dislike: no complimentary stuff toy or beach pack . I booked a one bedroom suite. Incident i asked for orange juice at breakfast they said it was not included only to see the table behind me getting theirs Things I like : my suite was spacious, luxurious, functional although no beach slippers provided Literally taking care of our transfer in and out of the resort . Even the transfers to nearby D Mall . They give their contact number. Their wonderful pool and beach butlers. Poolside stay will get you cold pandan water and 3-5 pm had mini snacks. Breakfast controlled buffet serves varying cuisine each day. Their restaurants are just pretty nice . Their people, their biggest asset. From Maan of Sands who remembers my preference for Stevia sweeteners. From Pabs the lifeguard. Jigs and Ernest handling the beach forte and Paul taking care of pool duties. This is my 2nd stay at this resort. Previous stays include Lind , Henann Regency , Shangrila, Crimson , Sea Wind among others. I guess I could tell the difference.

Fantastic Hotel in Boracay! Stayed here and were so happy with the experience! Staff are so lovely and go out if their way to ensure that they all know you by name and greet you everywhere you go! Location is fantatsic as it is away from the crowds and the beach located in front is fantatstic! Restaurant setves a number of different dishes all served swiftly and with lots of flavour. Rooms are amazing, well equipped with all the amenities you would need and more. Service also great, offerrings of small snacks from the 'happiness' officer. Make this the place to stay when you are in Boracay!

This is my 4th time I have been at Discovery Shores, and the ante on service always improves further each time . As this is a rated 5 star hotel , you do get all that is expected : Clean well curated rooms, well designed property ,well selected furnitures , everything functioning , great service . But what sets this place apart is the spirit of service fm the staff - well trained so they are confident , with that alert spirit of kind service . Sure unavoidable things can happen , as is life, but the staff is always quick to take action and try their best to make it right . The 1 room Suit loft Set-up With jacuzzi was excellent for a family of 4 Special mention to Pia the Customer service head , and Melvin. Security Personel Manny & Ralph . Resto Servers Daphne, Maan, Marian,Jhay, Genalyn -always making breakfast a pleasant experience . The room Cleaners were fantastic at their jobs - making up rooms and disinefting . The pandemic has brought about promos so this is a good time to come . The lesser amount of people both on the resort and the beach made us feel a Level of safety . They serve water carafes and Hors d'oeuvre on the beach while cool spritzing your face-nice touch . Enjoyed ourselves very much , so already booked our holidays next Year.

Marketing and advertising of this hotel has been consistent, and has always been portrayed as best in class. With the tourism and hospitality awards received (as they publish) together with their hotel rates, one would think they’d get bets in class service as well. Much to my dismay, I’m on our first day in the hotel, and service has been dismal. Thus far: Our pick up was LATE (30mins) so had to try and keep calling (which was not easy, as the number was usually busy or no one was picking up). Room is not yet ready, despite it being past check-in time (2PM). Then at 2:15, we were told they needed 40 minutes MORE to clean the room. Never mind how tired we were, but I would have expected that rooms were ready at the very least during the official check-in time of 2PM. Mind you, i am not a fussy guest, but this was just unacceptable for a supposedly good hotel who was good in customer service. Choco-Banana shake we ordered while waiting didn’t have Banana. Will update as we go along, but first impressions was just bad, experience equally bad.

The booking process (booked direct) was a breeze and a pleasure to do because their relationship managers were so friendly and can give you the best deals for your preferred setup. I love the free airport transfers as they have their own fleet of vehicles that will help you get to the island quickly and safely! The facility itself is superb! The rooms were well maintained (looks like new) and clean. The welcome amenities were a plus. The staff will make you feel like you're home with their warm friendliness. They'll go above and beyond to make sure your experience and stay was comfortable. Can't wait to go back!
