Just came home from a 3D/2N trip to Boracay Island with friends/colleagues. This trip was organized for us as a group. If reading my review will take too long, this is my summarized version -- My partner probably will not stay anywhere else anymore in our future visits to Boracay. Stepping out of the plane and into the arrivals hall in Caticlan airport, we were greeted with smiles and good vibes because all of our transfers were already taken cared of, complete with luggage tags and a bracelet to signify we're guests of the hotel. We didn't have to life a finger anymore from that point forward. We were escorted to the coaster to shuttle us to the port for our transfer to the island. We had a separate line for our group. Then off to their in-house boat that took us from Caticlan to Boracay. Of course, complete with alcohol and a cold towelette for our faces. Let's just say, EXTRA. Stepping in to the resort, EVERYONE always greeted yoh with a smile making us feel so welcome. There were some people in our group who needed special requests for their rooms, everyone always went out of their way to ensure that all our needs were met. The room was so clean, smelled amazing with everything and anything in its place. Immediately changed into swimming outfits so that immediately after lunch, off to the beach. Since it was high tide, the water was literally 5 steps away from the edge of the resort. And, the staff was so attentive to our needs. We needed towels, the next thing we knew, we were handed a pair already. With a lounging mat and pillows, complete with really cold regular still water, and the extra pandan water. Refreshing. What caught us by surprise, sunglasses cleaning service!! While lounging, we were approached with popsicles, muffins, an Evian face mist, cold towelette & cucumbers for our eyes (or for eating, whichever floats your boat). For all of our 3 days just lounging by the beach, A BIG SHOUT OUT TO SIR JIGS!!! He really went out of his way to make sure our needs were met. He even recommended we try a local coffeeshop instead of going to the commercialized one. Big, big thank you! Breakfast was just the right amount of food choices to make sure that you were fed right. The best thing about it, different spreads each time. 👌🏼 And, the free flowing coffee, whatever I felt like having -- brewed, cappucino, latte, it was delivered to the table with the extra coffee art. We also got to try the in-house restobars the resort offered. They also did not disappoint. Lunch at Sands and Forno Osteria were delicious. Happy hour at 360 Roof Bar also hit the spot -- a drink in one hand with the view of the Boracay sunset while lounging in their heated pool or jacuzzi. You can never go wrong with that. I wished they offered their whole drinks menu for happy hour though (a girl can dream). The resort's location was the right amount of isolation. Not too far off from the Boracay island life, but not too near the crowds. Just the right balance of not too quiet and not too noisy. The best part, for me, was always the staff! Hands down. Your warm smiles made our trip extra. Thank you to everyone in Discovery Shores Boracay for the most relaxing weekend I've had in a long time. Boracay has always been a special place but this time, staying with Discovery Shores, made it even more special. I'll definitely be bringing back my beach-loving girls to the resort, the next time we'd be in the island. Shout out to Myra and her partner in the front desk (sorry I missed to get her name), too, for our check out experience with a short chit chat in between credit card swiping. 😅…
Highly appreciated services and facilities. Commended the excellent service of ms daphne guinto. Food served were all good specially during banquet event. Difinitely more event can be held here since they are well familiarize wit us.
Best beach resort in Boracay because of its wonderful service and staff. Our favorite premier suite is always kept clean. The food is always a delight Shoutout to Donna, Abby and Naj for making us feel at home. Thank you for making our 14th wedding anniversary celebration memorable and delightful. SEA you again SOON, Discovery Shores!
This was my 9 year old’s first trip to Boracay and of course, it never disappoints. What elevated our experience was the superb service by Discovery Shores staff. The courteousness or Ronnie and Sandro who drove us around, to kuya Jenel who fed and entertained my little one frolicking at the pool. Hats off to Jigs who made sure we were well nourished and cared for by the beach and restaurant. And to Naj who made us feel extra special by making sure to address us by our names, and made our check in and out seamless. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure we were well oriented with the facilities and also helped me with some items I personally forgot to bring. With their warm smiles, they all provided. So if someone says there is no difference between DS and other resorts, then they haven’t experienced the warmth and professionalism of their staff’s customer service, which upgrades the whole Boracay experience to the next level.…
We stayed at 2 hotels in our 3 weeks in Boracay a mid range one and Discovery Shores, Shores is without doubt an amazing place to spend time, its far enough out to be reasonably quiet but close enough that 1/2 hour walk will see you in D’Mall which is a whole review to itself! The staff are courteous and polite at all times, the whole facility is kept clean and tidy, the food is amazing i had a steak at the Forno restaurant, it was the best I’ve had in a long time. I could prattle on for an incredible amount of time but on the whole if you’re going too Boracay I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Still the best resort in Bora! Excellent stay. The entire staff was very helpful. Naj was really accomodating and helped us all throughout our stay - from check in to check out. We all enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back! Thanks!
DSB grows on you. When you leave , you will miss the resort and the people who made it a special place for you. We (family of 4) are first time guests of DSB and I must say it was a very satisfying experience from beginning to end. We are not first time Boracay visitors, but this is the most special. The resort has touches of quiet luxury and is in a more private location. We enjoyed their food selection and loved our massages from Terra. Our cold, spacious one bedroom suite was perfect for us. Worth mentioning is the excellent hardworking staff who made sure we felt pampered throughout our stay. Special mention to Latrell who gave us a very good first impression of the resort, nurse Jenn who calmy attended to our minor mishap, Mariann, Cherry and Marlon from Sands, and Jigs who expertly took care of our beach needs. All in all a vey memorable stay which will make you want to go back again.…
An amazing place to stay. The hotel has great facilities and so close to the beach and the night life of Boracay. The rooms are spacious and the hotel has good space between the different accommodation buildings. I would definitely stay there again.
First time in Discovery Shores Boracay and all I can say that this is the best ever. From the excellent staff to our 1 bedroom suite. The food is also very good. Ambience and the amount of food will make you eat here and not leave anymore. Shout out to Latrell. Good job.
View was breathtaking. Customer service was excellent. Place was nice and clean. PWD and senior friendly. Food was good. It was a fun and unforgettable experience for the whole family. Would definitely come back
