Awesome Boracay hotel

Metro Manila, Philippines

When in Boracay staying at Discovery Shores is highly recommended! Everything you want or need to make your beach holiday awesome is at your fingertips. First, it’s located at Station 1 which to me is the best beachfront in Boracay. Secondly the suite is amazing. Spacious, with our own jacuzzi and balcony with a view of the sea. Third, service is superb from the welcome foot wash to attentive butlers (thanks Jigs) and the little snacks treats. I can’t wait to go back!

I wished we stayed at Shangri-la or at any Henann hotel we knew that were operational!

Calamba, Philippines

Me and my family did not have a bad experience the whole time however there are things that you will expect especially if you are paying USD500++/night. - Upon arrival at the Caticlan airport, their personnel who was supposed to be waiting outside the arrival area holding the sign "Discovery Shores Boracay" was nowhere to be found. I had to look for him among the parked Vans, pushing our carts, under the hot afternoon sun. - Upon arrival at the Hotel we had to be checked-in at their Forno ("Italian") restaurant because the area near their check-in counters was being prepared for a wedding reception. We decided to take lunch there while being registered but their food selections were limited and the taste does not justify the price. I wished we were convened at a Filipino restaurant instead, we might have enjoyed the food. - On our way to our room, we were advised that our ACU was being serviced to ensure our comfort for the night. We only realized that the ACU was actually defective and was being repaired. after we unload our luggages. Computer board had to be replaced. We actually complained this to the Hotel Manager and demanded to be transferred somewhere else but the only room he can offer was smaller than the one we booked so we decided to wait for the completion of the repair while they stationed a security personnel to ensure that our belongings were guarded while we're out. Thankfully it was repaired and we no longer need to transfer to a different room. - During our entire stay, breakfast was a mess. Food selections were so so so so so limited considering the price of the room you paid for. And the taste wasn't great either. There were delays in replenishing the buffet. Coffee took a lot of time to be served. If they were so under staffed why not provide self-service cappuccino machine instead. Actually, I think they were really under staffed because unlike in other hotels, during breakfast, all incoming guests will have to wait to be seated but not in this hotel. It was like a food court that you have to find your own seat and sometimes wait besides the table that was about to be vacated. It was awful. To be honest, this was the deal breaker for me. Our experience during breakfast made us decide that we will never ever stay in this hotel should we return to Boracay. This is where I said to my self "I wished we stayed at Shangri-la or at any Henann hotel we knew that were operational!". - When we're inside the room and we need some items (e.g. Bucket of ice, extra room slipper, extra towel), of course you will contact either Front Desk or Guest Services, however, most of the time there was nobody answering the phone so you will have to make multiple attempts to contact them until somebody picks up the phone. And when they do, it will take some time before they can deliver your request. Conclusion, if me and my family will return to Boracay for our Family vacation, I will no longer consider staying here.
