I travel once a month. I usually stay in 4 to 5 star hotels. Please don't believe other reviews. This place is amazing. You will not be disappointed. I think this is the first time I have written a review without saying anything wrong with a
hotel. My girlfriend and I had to stay at the Discovery Hotel for 2 days after staying at the Shangri La. We both wished we were back at the Shangri......this is by far the best hotel in Boracay.
