My auntie and I decided to get away for the Christmas break and booked a weeks break at Discovery Bay. It's a 3 star hotel but it has everything you could want in regards to great location in Holetown, clean rooms and bedding and the staff were all super friendly and helpful. The resort keep the beach clean and there...

i unfortunately got thees flea bites from a quilt while staying at the Discovery Bay by Rex Resort in November 2016. I reported it to the management several times but the managements response was that they were too busy and i was told that they'd get back to me unfortunately they never did .

They can't do enough to help..be it sorting trips or helping with health issues. I don't understand how anyone can review this hotel and criticise the staff, we have...

We went to this hotel for 2 weeks, i went with an open mind after reading some reviews. We were celebrating my birthday and 25th wedding anniversary along with my father and brother. After the first few days building work took place in the room next to them, they were woken at 7am with drilling and major works going on,...

We stayed here over Christmas for 10 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it! This was not our first trip to Barbados, having done self catering and stayed at another West Coast hotel in the past. The place may have a tired look but it is spotless, has very friendly staff and excellent food. Considering full board is inexpensive compared to other...

It's a good location, staff are friendly after a while, decor is 'rustic' and the food is freshly prepared. Bar is well stocked (except Fanta, which is SOLD at hotel shop). This is not top end but reasonably priced and could do with some wet-day activities. All said and done, the older staff are the hotel's prime asset, but young...

Just came back from Discovery a couple of days ago having spent 14 days with my little boy. Never will I go back there in December only because of the "usuals" that have been coming there for years! What a bunch of *@#$*!! I feel genuinely sorry for the staff there: they have to smile and put up with these...

Spent 12 nights at this resort. This resort is all inclusive. The resort itself is ok for a 3* but there's something missing. The atmosphere was flat. Most staff seemed indifferent, almost as if they didn't want to be there. The decor in the main areas was a cold light blue and the cushions in bar area were either well...

Had a week here and expected the worst having read other reviews. Don't listen to the moaners! The staff are so nice, nothing is too much and they make the place what it is! Those people moaning expecting a 5* resort are ridiculous. For the price, it is just right. Impeccably clean in the rooms and the grounds and the...
