Recent guest reviews

Great service. Staff was very friendly, always smiling and accommodating. Has a wide beach-front with a great view and even greater sand. Staff ensure that you don't need to leave the beach-front if you so wish.

Beach is extremely beautiful. Service on the beach is also great. But other than that, all are 4 stars level. Breakfast is not that tasty. Restaurant staff often forgot or delayed our orders - very stressful. Room and facilities are old.

As soon as we were picked up from the airport we had five star treatment provided by friendly staff. Got there early so went to the beach until our room was ready at 2pm. Beach was beautiful with clear waters and white sand. They bring you jugs of cold water and offer canapes/mini ice sticks at around 11am and 4pm. When will the flights coordinate with the hotels so international travellers will not waste so much time. Junior suite was modern with a large room and small balcony. Welcome sign was impressive! Enjoyed desert every night being delivered to our room. Staff clean the rooms twice a day. No hair dryer socket near bathroom. The buffet dinners are great and reasonably priced at 1,500 or less pesos. Ejoy happy hour, especially the Margaritas. I got massages next door for 600 pesos and Tita is superb. Enjoyed breakfast especially with Francis looking after you - he needs to train all the staff especially the young ones who look confused and stand around a lot near the entrance. Great hotel and would highly recommend it.

My family and I stayed over the holidays and checked out on the 31st of Dec. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. From our arrival to our departure everyone made sure that we did not miss out on anything. Breakfast selection was varied and delicious; we got service in the rooms twice a day including turn down. The cabanas by the beach was well attended and we always felt safe with so many friendly staff making sure you were happy. We would most definitely return and would definitely recommend a visit. The CEO was most gracious in doing his rounds and thanking each guest for their patronage. You will miss out if you don’t stay here!

Over-all stay is excellent and beyond expectations, i.e., the service is great, the room assigned to us is beautiful and clean, the hotel's amenities are amazing! And oh, the view of the sunset from the hotel is just perfect.

Our stay at discovery shores exceeded my expectations...from the service, friendliness, cleanliness, ambiance, food. Discovery Shores a place to be at station one..away from the crowd. The service here is non stop even when you’re just basking in the sun. Thank you Discovery Shores for a memorable vacation!

The hotel is excellent. Fantastically laid out. Waterfall awesome and located in Station 1 are which is quiet yet only a 15m walk to station 2 for a party. Or a short shuttle ride. The bar is superb with great cocktails and the food menu delicious. Nice gifts in the room too. Which is very large. One suggestion though. At the pick up at the port took a while. I had to wait for other guests for about 30-40m. The boat could have been there and back within 10m for the next visitors rather than me waiting too long. A very minor point for an otherwise excellent stay.

Ever since Discovery Shores Boracay open in 2007, I feel like I’m already part of their family here and everybody knows that I’m single so they provided me a big bear to cuddle!#discoveryshores #discoveryshoresboracay

Excellent stay. Lives up to expectation for sure. You have to pay more but you get your money’s worth. Staff are super nice and accommodating. Breakfast buffet is good with a lot of options to choose from. Foods from their in-house restaurant are great. We ended up just eating here for the most of our stay. Beachfront is amazing. You really enjoy the beauty of boracay. I love how they always keep everything clean and how attentive all their staff were during our stay. They take time to really know you by name. My only suggestion- is to maybe limit the vendors in their area of the water if they can? There were plenty of vendors trying to get you to rent their stand up paddle which i think ruins their part of the beachfront. Would love to come back again.

It was our nth time in boracay but our first time in discovery shores. It was my husband’s request for our 20th wedding anniversary so I booked 2 rooms for our family of 7 despite the quite pricey peak season rates. I was a bit disappointed upon arriving at the hotel Bec our room wasn’t ready yet and the hotel restroom wasn’t clean. The room availability was understandable Bec we arrived before 12 but the untidy toilet was quite a shock for a supposedly luxury resort. The kids’ play room was no different . The room was tiny and unkempt, the toys were old and worn out. My four year old who loves toys didn’t even want to stay there for 5 minutes. The spacious guest rooms was a pleasant surprise. My kids enjoyed Bogart, their signature stuffed bear. But the bear that was given to us had a rip in its crotch and because the filling was coming out, we asked housekeeping to either sew it up or replace it. We called 3or 4 times but nobody came to Fix it . We enjoyed the late morning snacks by the pool and the evening desert. The staff were courteous and friendly. They definitely have the best beach front in all of boracay. And if you happen to leave a valuable inside your hotel room when you check out, you can be assured that you will get it back. We did!
