Paid all inclusive but didn't receive it

Staff not trained in solving problems...we paid all inclusive but were given room only....we spent 1st 2 days complaining on phone which cost us money and time we should have been on beach. We escalated the problem till finally we had the Ops Manager give us 2 meals a day from the 2nd week but no drinks or lunch. The holiday cost us a fortune in additional expenses for meals and drinks and no-one cared, least of all the MD in the UK and the Indian call centres just didnt undertsand us.Nightmare start to holiday.Some staff helped but no process to help is in place.

Beloved getaway

Discovery Bay is beloved by many who return year after year. It is very British (which we loved, as Americans) but it is not everyone's cup of tea. Those guests who return all love the laid-back atmosphere including the slightly worn feeling of the place, the conviviality of the other guests, the great value for the money, the super location and the great beach. I have stayed here before and plan to return next year.

Think twice

The Discovery Bay was not what I was expecting. We checked in after the designated arrival time however our room was not ready. We later found out the room was not ready because they were doing touch up painting in the room. The paint was still wet when we entered the room. In addition, the room (and patio) were flooded. We requested another room and moved that night. Our second room also had large amounts of water on the patio. The one bright spot was the food service and staff. We thought the food was excellent. They had live music several nights during the week. We stayed in this location because of discounts and the location on the West Coast. Yes, it was walking distance to Holetown but so are other places. We've stayed nicer places in the past. Next time I'll cough up more money to stay elsewhere.
