More than the food, the rooms, its perfect location on White Beach, it's the staff here that keeps me coming back. The service, personalised, sincere and genuine, is difficult to say goodbye to. It's the little surprises they give that creates the most impact.

This was a beautiful experience!! Boracay is simply the most beautiful beach by far that we have ever seen in our lives. Additionally, the beach in front of Discovery Shores is the best section of beach on the island--pristine, clean, and away from the crowds. Also, the peddlers of goods won't approach and bother you while you're relaxing in front...
