    Excellent option to relax and to enjoy one of the best beaches in the world. The location, the sevice, and the beach are simply perfect. Kids really enjoyed the experience, and it is walking distance to some stores and water activity desks.

    The price is higher than other Hotels near by but I think there is a good value proposition for the difference.

    Fabulous

    The facilities are good and the staffs are always smiling. The room is beautiful and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast is just enough. I would still like to stay on this hotel on my next visit to Boracay because of the room and it's facilities. The staffs are friendly and they would always greet you whenever you walk past them.

    The staffs tend to be slow when you make requests i.e. requests for a glass of pandan water and shuttle service. When we ask the shuttle service to pick us up, they said the shuttle is already coming and we waited for 30 minutes for the shuttle and ended up riding the tricycle instead and we never saw the shuttle on our way back to the hotel. The staffs are good at doing their everyday jobs but when you make requests, they tend to be quite slow. The hotel is also far from d'mall and other establishments which is why you need their free shuttle service.

    Fabulous

    It is a very accessible hotel. The hotel staffs escort us from Caticlan airport to the hotel, and vice versa. Compared with other hotels in Boracay, I think only Shangri-La can have same level of service.

    The qulaity of breakfast is mediocre. I don't see they invest enough in their restaurant as food qulaity is very normal.

    Superb

    Absolutely beautiful resort. Fabulous breakfast setup. Service at the beach was winner -- we got towels, iced water, borrowed a beautiful new football to play with. Excellent customer service!!! From start to end of the trip. Great staff named Ronnie escorted us through the horrible Cebu Pacific check in back to the city -- where we were being coerced to agree to fly via Kalibo even if our tickets were for Caticlan -- he made sure we were comfortable. I can't say anything bad about Discovery Shores ...

    ... except I wish it wasn't so expensive.

    Apart from the amenities and the nice room, we loved the service accorded by your friendly staff.

    one of the waitresses was too eager to clear our plates during breakfast een if there was still food on our plate.

    Superb

    Discovery Shores was lovely and in a secluded area that allowed privacy, at the same time, it was easy enough to get to civilization. The room was great and staff tried to be helpful.

    Service in the coffee shop and the bar was appalling. I had to call out loud to get any attention from them.

    Very good

    Our stay at discovery shores was very pleasant. We would like to especially mention the service provided by Jigs at the beach bar....Jigs is fantastic.....he gets the term 'customer satisfaction' a warm, helpful, genuine friendly man....always willing to go the extra mile.......a real asset to your resort, you should look after him and set his standard of excellence as an example for all staff.

    Only thing we found disappointing was the lack of wines available from the wine list at all your restaurants/bars.....and we had a similar experience last year (not that we stayed at your resort...but we did visit for a couple of meals and the wine list appeared to be quite extensive....but most white wines were either 'old and un-drinkable' or unavailable.

    Exclusive

    Исключительные услуги, оказываемые персоналом. Любая собственность на первой линии пляжа в Боракае будет великолепна, но что отличает эту недвижимость от других, так это персонал. Отличный сервис, который следует за вами, где бы вы ни находились, с момента приземления до момента взлета. Мы задумались о том, что сюда нужно будет обязательно вернуться! Отдых был просто райский! Это стоило каждого пенни.

    Мне нравится расположение, дружелюбный персонал и вкусный завтрак... Персонал отеля всегда заботится о том, чтобы нам было комфортно во время нашего пребывания. Мне нравятся мелкие детали, которые они добавляют к их душевной службе. Я очень хочу сюда вернуться!

    Superb

    Пляж очень чистый, и комнаты огромные. Надеюсь, они смогут сохранить это. Персонал очень дружелюбный.

    Еда не такая уж и вкусная. У них должно быть больше выбора. Шведский стол, не так много еды здесь было.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Месторасположение, бассейн, номера и отличные трансферы.

    Всего 8 соляриев для всего отеля. Завтрак - без тостеров, без кофеварки - все нужно заказывать через дезорганизованный персонал, завтраки не перезагружаются во время обслуживания.

    Exclusive

    Персонал отзывчивый. Расположение идеальное и виды невероятные. Хорошо организованный трансфер. Кровать очень уютная, и подушки удобные. Все рестораны хороши и доступны по приемлемой цене (салат Цезарь в итальянском ресторане лучший в Боракае!)

    Все было просто идеально! Спасибо большое! Мы обязательно вернемся!
