This mediocre hotel is located in front of a very nice, busy beach. The sand directly in front of the beautiful beach is hard packed from foot traffic, while closer to the beach chairs it is raked and the softest sand you've ever felt! The water in front of the hotel is crystal clear and a lovely blue colour. Our...

Hotel staff were very hospitable and always to offer help. Rooms were very nice. Worth the money spent for the whole stay. Need to improve on the breakfast selection, more hot dishes. Bread were dry and looked stale. Fruits and cold cuts must be in ice bath for better quality.

Aside from the wonderful place (resort-wise, beach access, & front-row seats to the sunset), it's the people that make the difference. Filipino service is arguably one of the best in the world, and Discovery Shores Boracay would definitely be one of those places where top-of-class services are on display. Shout-outs to Julius and Nikki, thank you!

Love the service and ambiance. It is far from local food that we usually like to explore when we are in a place to visit. They have shuttle service that can bring the guests around which makes it easy to go around. They charge extra if you are going to areas not within the station1,2,and 3.
