Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Best there is in boracay... Boat transfers, shuttle service, pandan water, white sand beach upfront, swimming pool, my kids had fun we will go back next year... And every summer...thereafter

Margarita discovery n mojitos were awesome... Buffet breakfast was ok but everything else is worth the penny we paid...

was there in december 2013... the staff were simply fantastic as stated in the earlier reviews. you could really feel the sincerity in their service. and the beach was great!
but the state of the resort is run down. wear and tear has taken is toll. the lift to our rooms were not working, chairs in the restaurant were torn/had burn marks etc, ants were a frequent visitor to the room, we had problems with our aircon etc. especially the aircon issue, being a beach hotel, airconditioning is of vital improtance; after a long hot day in the sun, you want to come back to a comfortable room.
for the price you pay , it is not worth it. not so sure how it got to be one of the best beach hotels in the world, must have been assessed when everything was working fine.....

I've tried many type/classes of hotels in Boracay and none can match the level of service this resort has for its guests. I've gone 2x already and it's always a pleasure to be back "home".

The resort has a lovely pool area and a nice and quiet beachfront. I like the fact that it is far from Station 2 and the maddening crowd. My family feels very safe in this hotel .

Make sure to try to get a room near the pool area if you want quick access to the beach. It is worth it especially if you have a kid in tow.

Recently proposed to my fiancee at Discovery Shores. paid in advance for a table set up on the beach. We arrived to find the table was niclye done, good atmosphere great setting. Had guests of 10 so wanted to get everyone drinks before I made a speach and pop the question. 1 hour later still waiting for first drink. Main courses are coming before most of the table are served a beverage in the hto Boracay heat. Had younger members of the family getting bored and leaving the table and wandering on the beach all the while im getting more stressed. God help them if they had a wedding. Well it made my mind up id never get married at Discovery. The excuse was no ice. Food price was extortionate and very very average.

Luckily We made a joke about it. She said yes and the night turned out great. No thanks to Discovery shores.

My family stayed at Discovery Shores Boracay from April 20 to 23, 2014. And all I can say is, it would be very hard to go back to Boracay and "not stay" at Discovery Shores! We experienced an awesome stay there! From the hotel amenities, to the ever friendly and attentive staff and crew of the hotel! They definitely gave us one HAPPY SUMMER! Looking forward in bringing back the whole family and experience their wonderful kind of service! To the Discovery Shores Boracay...Two thumbs up for everything!

We had a six-night stay at the property and really enjoyed it. The hotel is in a great location on station 1 on the beautiful white beach. They had plenty of lounge chairs which is very nice so you do not have to worry about getting one if you decide to sleep in. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed however have very limited view of the ocean except for a few as most of them do not face directly the beach. It was a little disappointing as for that rate, I was expecting to see the ocean directly from our bed and not be facing another room which offered very little privacy. We were initially in a room close to the pool and decided to change to a room further up from the beach so that it would be more quiet. However there was a construction site right behind the hotel and they would start at 7AM in the morning. The pool does not face the beach which was a little disappointing and is a little small so we did not spend much time there. However with such a wonderful beach, who needs to spend time at the pool! I initially thought about staying at the Shangri-la but it is away from the main beach which is really the attraction in Boracay so I would definitely recommend Discovery instead. Shangri-la is definitely in a quieter area but the beach is much smaller there and the sand is not as powdery as on the main beach. I would compare Boracay to Ibiza, it is a party place so definitely not the type of destination where you feel secluded, you must be prepared for that or choose a different destination. We spent a week in El Nido before that which was a completely different experience. If you are looking to relax away from the crowd, it is definitely not the destination to pick. Snorkeling from the beach is also very limited if that is what you are looking for. In terms of the service, it was absolutely excellent, they were very attentive and catered to our every needs. The food was very good and there was a nice selection at the breakfast buffet.
