Catching a small boat over to the hotel on a small island set up our stay nicely. Even though it is in sight of Coron it felt like a remote tropical island. The staff mostly did a good job; service was friendly and quick. The rooms are basic but big, clean, and watching the sunset out the front was a great ending for a busy day. The restaurant had a mostly western menu with comparable prices to other restaurants in Coron. There was no hot water in the shower. There where no mosquito nets over the beds. There was rubbish in the mangroves that would have been so easy to pick up (and while we where there we did). Plastic outdoor furniture has a cheap feel and it could be replaced with bamboo to fit the surroundings.

Quiet place gives a great feeling of a real get away..away from "reality". You can really feel relaxed. We're checked in for 4 days, 3 nights. First advice is to double check with the resort upon booking, wether your room is air conditioned or not, depending on what you prefer. We booked through their website. We thought or maybe took for granted that all rooms were AC:ed. It wasn't 100% clear on their site. But this matter didn't bother us much at all, since we had 2 electric fans and the nights and early mornings can be cold. Though AC can be nice sometimes for example upon first arrival and every arrival from tours, etc. The resort has an awesome nature, great ambiance..love it! The resort offers tours and massages. Another advice though is to still compare with tour agancies outside the resort. FYI massages are given in your own respective room, some could like it, some may not. For us, it was 50/50, we expected a different area at the resort. It was nice that you can rest directly after massage, downside are the non massage friendly beds and if there are 2 of you having massage in the bed.. yeah you can imagine the space. But it was ofc still good :). We really recommend this place. Romantic, family friendly island resort👌🏼.

Discovery Island is a great little resort. The ten minute boat ride from Coron to the island really sets it apart. Our room was comfortable with quiet and efficient air conditioning. The bar and restaurant are open-air but that suits the atmosphere of the place. The food is a mix of Philippines standards and typical tourist thing such as pizza and burgers. The bar is fine as far as it went but was a bit slack in terms of stocking (no tonic water!). The staff and management were lovely and friendly - but hey, it's the Philippines! The private boat tour was very good indeed - vastly better than the big boats operating from Coron. The airport transfer works exactly as described. Just be sure to leave enough time to work through airport security on the way out.

Room Tip: The newer rooms have aircon. Best to check first as without AC would be quite uncomfortable.

We stayed here for 6 days in Dec 2019. The staff were amazing and very friendly. The service was great and the restaurant food was very good. The room was really nice with a view of the bay. Aircon worked great. Hot water worked too. Ariza and the team (Thanks Starky and Lorna) go above and beyond to ensure guests are happy, which made us cancel our other resort and come back to Discovery. The resort is set among a natural mangrove environment., Its calm and peaceful and away from the town. That said we went pretty crazy a few nights with kareoke and the bar area going off. You can walk all the way around the island too. Pool area is awesome for relaxing, with a infinity style overflow and its close to the bar. We were a couple, but this is good for family's, groups and solo travelers. Free ferry all day/evening to the town is also a great service. We never waited more than 15mins, at either end. There is a small pebble beach, but dont expect white sand beach, it is not advertised as such and doesn't claim to have one, but this didnt change our experience at all. Thanks so much Discovery, I hope to come back some day.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel from December 1 th til December 6 th. The hotel is placed on a little island near Coron. The surroundings is peaceful and quiet which is nice. The staff was smiling and kindly. Although we were unsatisfied with the service. When we told the staff that we wanted to rent a kajak at the place we were told that it was no problem. But when we got to the reception a couple of hours later we were told there was no paddles to the kajaks while a former customer broke the last one. Furthermore we only got our room cleaned once. So overall we it was an okay hotel but don't expect to much of it.
