I couldn't wait to tell you about the fabulous service in this hotel. This is comfort all the way. Not much of an adventure for those who are into such an experience. But if you want comfort then this is the service for you. The moment you arrive at the airport, you are met by A courteous guide and then...

Lovely and plentiful staff for sure, but at $300/night I would expect properly functioning wifi (it does not), maintenance requests to be serviced promptly (they are not), and wake-up calls to be timely (these too are not). Hard to find any "value" here...

Yes it's a little pricey, but it's worth the money. It sits on a beautiful white sand beach that you walk out onto right from the hotel. And the bar is right there on the sand. The beach water is shallow, warm and very calm. It's like living in a Corona commercial. It is a little separated from the main...

Dear JoshGilbert, Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review about your experience at Discovery Shores.

Staying at Discovery Shores is something one has to experience before one can understand the level of service they offer. They know your name, they handle the kids remarkable and the staff us always there without you even noticing. Ask for anything, and they will arrange or help. Rooms are big and well equipped. Staying here is like coming home!

Dear oyvjo, Thank you for a delightful review. We look forward to welcoming you back to your “home” in Boracay. Yes, our service is attentive yet unobtrusive, and knowing (as well as remembering!) guest names and their preferences is a norm here. We want each and every guest to feel right at home.
