Our experience at Discovery Shores Boracay exceeded all expectations, which were already set very high. The friendliness of the staff, their service, and the beauty of the resort is astounding. Our only regret was not staying longer. We'll definitely be returning in the future.

Discovery Shores Boracay is THE MOST PERFECT resort in Boracay if you want to relax and unwind! At the same time, its location is still close enough to Stations 2 and 3 if you need to go to there (plus they have free shuttle service for those who do not feel like walking along the beach). The service was impeccable....

Hotel staffs are the ones that really made the difference. The rooms are fantastic too. There may be rooms for improvement at the Sands bar though. The service at the restaurant is really...really slow. You'll have to wait 45mins to 1 hour for your food to be served. They will try to commit 30 mins, but be ready to pack...

We love Discovery Shores Boracay! Staying here doesn't feel like your a tourist at all. You're treated as a VIP in a hospitable Filipino's home. It's a timeless masterpiece along the pristine white sand beaches of Boracay. The food choices, rooms, amenities, excellent service, quiet beachfront, and fantastic view of the sunset are the reasons we keep coming back. Although...

The moment I heard about my boss sending me out for a corporate ad shoot in Discovery Shores, I was so stoked knowing it's a 5-star hotel, and it never failed me.

The place is located in station 1, literally just a few steps away from the beach. The sand is so fine, and the area is quieter and more relaxing compared to the other stations in boracay. The food is amazing and there's a wide variety offered, and the rooms are perfect. The pool is also never crowded and cleaned well....

Stayed on a Friday and Saturday night with my teenage son. This was our annual office summer outing so we were around 60 persons at the resort during that time. The staff is very welcoming and courteous. They greet everyone a 'happy summer' all the time. The standard suite is very spacious with all the usual comforts. Very good shower....

Attention to detail was impressive. My daughter sat in the sand to play and within a minute someone had noticed and brought her some sand toys. We planned to go out and do some other activities on boracay but couldn't take ourselves away from the hotel!
