Wonderful resort. After staying at this resort I checked out all other Small Luxury Hotels worldwide cause will consider booking at more resort they have. That is how much we enjoyed our stay at Discovery.
I travel to Boracay every year and will always try different resort every time I visit. I booked at Pearl of the Pacific initially and when I arrived at the resort it was terrible (you can view my feedback on Pearl of the Pacific) so my friend and I walked through the beach checking out other resort so we can transfer and decided to book at Discovery Shores. They were so nice to have the van pick us up at the Pearl and the amazing thing is they were ON TIME! A very rare thing around the Philippines.
I think one of the best things I loved about this resort is the ATTENTION TO DETAIL - especially on service.
At Discovery we loved the rooms and most of all the service they provided made your stay at the resort like a king and queen.
Luxuries that you will enjoy...WiFi access FREE even at the balcony of the room, reception lobby where it is open air - wifi access is important to me every time I travel for I need to be able to check my email everyday as I work with clients at different time zones. Second, one of the things that bugs me is when you're laying down at the beach and their are people coming up to you selling stuff or offering massage or manicure services. At this resort, security finds a way to block them out. Then every time you head out to the water for a swim, when you get back all your things are folded and arranged neatly. Plus they serve your water, ice, sherbet, and fruits for FREE as you relax at the beach. This I think is a very nice touch cause it only cost the hotel so little to do this service but has a great impact on their guest. The room service at night who brings in indulging sweets and water is a very nice touch every time we came back from a long walk in the beach under the stars or a nice dinner at another resort. See most resort just give you water in ordinary plastic bottle water. This resort give you water in a glass pitcher and ice. This small touch makes you feel that the water they serve is fresh water cause it is something one has to put an effort to transfer and pour in a glass pitcher instead of just getting it off the shelf. The smiling faces and greetings of the staff every morning as you head down to the buffet breakfast makes you feel they are so happy to have you at their resort. Even the guys who comb the beachfront of the resort greet you with a smile even if he is sweating under the heat of the sun. The buffet food was excellent.
Having traveled in so many places we put service and attention to details as a top priority in our travels. From experience a resort maybe new but if the attention to detail is not there the place will not be comfortable to stay in cause definitely rooms will not be clean, bugs and insects will be everywhere and simple things like numbers of room service listed by the phone can be missed and small inconveniences will be felt that is such a bugger. We have stayed in old resorts but because of the attention to detail, rooms are clean, there is a place for everything, food is great, service is great. And this is I think what made Discovery Shores such a luxury because not only is it new they lived up the attention to detail from your rooms to the beach front.
