Since Discovery Shores Boracay had opened, this property has always been my top choice when in Boracay. More than the amazing structure, facilities and amenities, I’ve always been blown away by the level of personalized service of their staff. Our recent trip last July 2015 was extra-special, it was a post-wedding vacation. We had thought of going to a place...

If you are travelling to Boracay, I would definitively recommend you stay at this hotel. It's on the best and clearest part of the beach, away from all the noise and touts, but still close to restaurants and within a leisurely 10-15 minute stroll to D'mall. Service was absolutely lovely from the moment we arrived at Caticlan airport. Offered bottled...

The hotel located at the end of the white beach which makes it very private and quiet. The sands are much better than the centre of the white beach. Staff are all very friendly, but upon arrival, we waited quite long to have our luggages delivered to the room. Besides, the hotel also arranged the decoration for celebrating the 10th...

I loved this place, particularly the foot scrub upon arrival. Food was good, beach lovely but the staff were the highlight. A couple of small grievances, they wouldn't replenish the coffee capsules on our 2nd day - apparently you have to pay extra. Seems silly to me when they are laying on free cakes and cookies. I complained and they...

This place is fantastic. As you arrive you are checked in and promptly give afoot bath, delicious drinks and snacks. Swimming at the beach which is basically the hotel backyard is incredible. Cocktails and snacks by the pool is great! Could not fault the service. Could not fault the rooms. Turn down service Is an added bonus.
