Stayed at Discovery Shores for ten nights in February this year and was blown away by the resort and the friendliness of staff. Beautiful setting and a complete rest from the hustle and bustle. Free shuttle to the town whenever you wanted and a Butler on the beach tending to your every whim (including taking your sunglasses off of your head to inspect and clean before replacing). We were rewarded with a free 5 course meal to be taken any time in the top notch Indigo Restaurant and it did not disappoint. The buffet breakfasts were excellent catering for every need. Quicker to sort yourself out though as things are taken at a much more leisurely pace than us Westerners are used to. The appartments are knock out and the facilities are beyond expectation. I cannot recommend this resort highly enough and overlook this at your peril.

Room Tip: I would choose an appartment towards the back of the resort away from Swimming pool, just for a little more privacy

Our room was d' lovely, service was topnotch, amenities were excellent, buffet breakfast had a great selection, never had to wait long for pick up, i could go on and on...
I would have rated Discovery Shores a 5 if it weren't for the water in the jacuzzi that wasn't warm at all. But we had plenty of things to do and lying n the deck feels heavenly enough, so I give it a 4++ and we will be back!

Room Tip: Dont bother paying extra to get the outdoor jacuzzi

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. From the moment we stepped off the plane the staff went above and beyond our expectations. The service from phenomenal, their attention to detail was second to none. On arrival to our room you are given a foot massage which was brilliant. The staff service your room twice a day. It's the little things the staff do to make your stay a wonderful experience. The service provided either by the beach or pool was amazing. Towels provided immediately, iced water, sunglasses cleaned, cucumber for your eyes, oranges for your faces. Anything you ask for is provided with no fuss. The amount of staff there is out of this world. Friendly, attention to detail and service from the heart. Jigs who works by the beach was amazing. We took him out for dinner to the fish market and he is amazing. A great guy and a friend for life. The massages in the day spa are out if this world. Great value for money and an experience we will never forget. The hotel manager is often seen around the resort making sure your stay is first class. Overall an amazing resort with the best service in the world at a reasonable price. Would definately go back.

Very impressed with the excellent service. All the staff were genuinely warm, friendly and very professional. From the start of the trip, whilst waiting for the ferry pick up to the island, the discovery shores driver went to get mineral water for us. When we reached the lobby, we were given welcome drinks and the guest relations manager Carols personally showed us up to our suite. We enjoyed the foot massage/spa upon arrival at our suite. Different tea time snacks were delivered to our room daily. There was complimentary shutter service to the malls. When we checked out on our last day, my husband was carrying our luggages, when the grasscutter saw him, he immediately stop cutting the grass and helped my husband with the luggages. We are both constantly overwhelmed by their excellent service. We have stayed in different hotels around the world and Discovery Shores came up tops. Somehow. . . the white powdery sand outside Discovery Shores was much finer as compared to the ones away from the hotel. Walking back from D-mall along the sandy beach is something we both enjoyed . . . if you are visiting Boracay, this is the hotel to stay. . .

Room Tip: All the rooms are suites. Great for honeymooners and families with kids. Everyday at 4pm, they have kids activities :) Discovery Shores is also away from the noisy pubs so you get peace and quiet at night . There's also a selection of DVDs you can choose to borrow and watch in the comfort of your suite.

Absolutely breathtaking! The minute we landed in Kalibo, there was a specific van that shuttled all seven of us to the port where an exclusive ferry boat from Discovery Shores awaited us. From there we were transported to the hotel. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the most friendliest staff. Complimentary cool drinks by the pool and front desk along with snacks are wonderful. Celebrating or dad's birthday, a large banner welcomed us with a cake and other Filipino snacks on the table. Foot washing by a housekeeper was heavenly. Lounging by the pool one day, a staff had folded our towels and asked if he could clean my sunglasses...how sweet is that? Really wished I had kept track of all the names of the workers. One specific assistant manager, JP, at the coffee shop was more than accommodating to all of us. Thanks, JP. One last thing I want to mention is that the whole time we were there, all staff we passed would simultaneously bow their head with hand on their chest, greeting us with a genuine smile and a "magandang araw, po." That's a gesture I'll never forget. Awesome job, Discovery Shores!!!

Room Tip: Junior suite is great for families.
