The best experience

Silver Spring, Maryland

My family of 11 just returned from a 5 day, 4 night stay at Discovery Shores. To say that we had an amazing time is an understatement. No detail was left unturned. Discovery Shores definitely hit the mark with customer service. Melvin, guest service Experience manager, absolutely deserves al the praise. He made sure our entire family was taken care from the minute we check in. We traveled with 5 young children and he had teddy bears and beach toys ready for the kids. These came so handy especially playing at the pristine beach just steps away. Grounds were meticulously kept up and there was always someone cleaning up Leaves and debris. Our room was cleaned daily as well as turned down nightly. We even got a sweet (literally) surprise each night waiting for us. It was always a delicious desert from the onsite restaurant, Forno. We also received a very personalized welcome banner with our name on it when we walked in the room. The huge bear and the foot bath was something we have never experienced at a hotel before. We spent a lot of time in the pool and pool bar. Ernest and Jinel were so attentive and patient with us, always ready to take our order. The pool was also meticulously cleaned. Although small, it was the perfect size to corral the kids and keep them close by. The pool chairs were always ready for us with towels laid out and cold water in a carafe. They also had snacks and drink (different everyday) in a stand pool side. Pool staff would also offer cold Evian water spray and cucumber for your eyes and orange slices for your cheeks. What a 5 star experience! The life guard, Pabs, was also so kind to us and the kids. Taking the time to learn all their names and ensure their safety. Daily buffet breakfast was served and had different choices daily. It was also delicious and a great variety. This was especially important to us with 5 kids with very different taste buds. Marlon and Franz always ensured that we had our coffee ready for us and even brought out extra food that was not served at the buffet. They always made us feel special, always knowing what we wanted before we even asked. We had lunch at 360 restaurant with the rooftop bar and pool. Amazing views and even more amazing staff! Byron kept drinks flowing for us and took care of every need. We also had dinner our first night in the restaurant by the pool (the name is slipping my mind). We were taken care of by Claud who had the patience of a saint especially with our large party.

FACILITIES ARE EXCELLENT

Facilities are excellent, staffs are very accomodating, personal essential needs are met like supply of drinking water, baby essentials for the entire duration of the stay are provided. one thing though while there is a private pool inside our suite when we requested for the water heater to be turned on it doesn't seem to work? so it defeats the purpose of paying for a suite with private pool if there is no heater so we are not able to use the pool for the whole duration of our stay, and sadly it's the only pool I would want to use on our stay for privacy.
