Recent guest reviews
Discovery shores is located in Station 1 of Boracay. If you love your privacy away from the hustle and bustle of Boracay tourists then this would be the perfect place for you. The hotel staff are genuinely concerned about providing your every need. An overall excellent experience!
I was very pleased with a lot of things such as good security, courteous service and tidy rooms. One of your dining staff stood out. He was very pleasant and attentive, and he always exuded genuine concern. I will be back soon.
Its claims to be the best hotel in Boracay, but: - we took a room that was advertised as "with balcony" but it had no balcony. - there is constant music noise day and night everywhere so you cannot sleep and relax. - we needed a medical doctor: we asked the front desk and they told us that they will find a doctor to refer us to, but they never did - breakfast was dull, they asked us what we want to drink, we ordered coffee - but it never came. Bowls for soup and cereal were missing - so we asked for them. 3 times! but only on the 3rd time, after 15 minutes (!!!) bowls arrived. - room door broken: does not lock automatically. So we found ourselfs a few times leaving it by mistake unlocked, since the lock mechanism doesnt work well. - construction: entrance looks terrible, building materials all around, instead of eating breakfast with a great sea view as in their pictures, our view was an ugly construction structure blocking all view. huge disappointment. For a hotel that charges 4 times more than any other hotel in the area I expected more.
Let me start by saying I had no idea what to expect, visiting Boracay and Discovery Shores for the very first time. The HOSPITALITY of the staff is absolutely unmatched anywhere in all of my travels!! A complimentary foot scrub and massage upon our arrival?? Room was impeccably upscale spacious and classy! Hotel itself, the grounds, pool and particularly the beach are extraordinary!! Beautiful white powder sand beaches that stretch for miles. Warm crystal clear water made it difficult to leave. The breakfast buffet was quite nice as well. Again however, the customer service at this facility is beyond description!! Just see for yourself as u take a simple walk around the hotel grounds, you will not be missed by a single smiling delightful Filipino staff member greeting you a warm hello, from the front desk staff to the servers to the beach attendants that simply cannot do enough to make your time an enjoyable one. In particular ask for my dear friend “Jigs” who was always there for me, from serving FRESH papaya smoothies to cleaning my wife’s and my sunglasses! Just an extraordinary experience! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended Discovery Shores!! Mabuhay!
I first stayed in DSB in november 2016. This is the only resort that i want to stay in when travelling to boracay. Excellent service begins once you step out of the airport door. Staff across all departments are very warm, friendly, and accomodating. Room and amenities suit our needs. Great location as the beach front is not noisy and busy like the other resorts. Whether you’re with friends or family (or maybe in solo), DSB never disappoints.
We had a memorable stay at this lovely hotel. Wish our stay was longer but nevertheless it was well worth and definitely worth every peso. We wish to be back again! Kudos to the staff of DSB! See u soon, Bogart!
To sum it in all up - pampered 👍👍👍👍 Beautiful beach front, white fine sand and impeccable service. From our arrival to departure - the staff of Discovery Shores were exemplary in service. Anything you need - they will do their best to accomodate you with a smile. The rooms were spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. Amenities were great. Food servings were huge and yum. The little things they do (evian mid sunbathing to freshen you up, wet towels and change of bath towels) really make them THE PLACE TO BE 😍💋 Will definitely stay again and again. Discovery Shores Palawan next on the list
Came here for spa and dinner. Spa was amazing but the grilled tuna was overdone. The staff were super attentive and asked how the meal was to which I replied that the fish was over cooked. I asked for some mayonnaise and chilli sauce to help with the dry texture of the fish. We also had the signature chocolate cake which was also quite dry and not very sponge like but looked great on the plate. The restaurant was full of people and has a modern feel to it. Great for a meal after the spa and you can ask for a special table to be prepared at an extra cost if you are celebrating an anniversary or on a honeymoon
Twice this year yet twice the SURPRISE and two times AMAZING. I thought this would be my last time in Boracay as I have been here numerous times. Although my last two stays with DSB makes me wanting to come back for more.
I was served pizza with plastic strips inside! 5 star, fine dining?! If they were in america, the food authority would’ve shut them down for poor hygiene already. Afterwards, All they did was put their hands together, smile, and give me an “oopsie, sucks for you” speech. I’m trying to save as much people from suffering the same fate. STAY FAR FAAARRR AWAY from this restaurant!!!!
