We liked the hotel and the setting. The maintenance was very up and down, especially when we arrived. Our room overlooked the beach and was fine for swimming and snorkelling. The food left a lot to be desired, however. It was very repetitive and overcooked, not as much choice as one would have liked either, though the staff were very...

I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us in January. The hotel has the ideal setting, close to shops, banks, post office, cinema and many bars and restaurants. To enhance this, our beach is one of the larges on the West coast of Barbados. The Beach Fronts rooms are a “stones throw” from the azure Caribbean sea....

Upon arrival at this resort, we gained the impression that we were not expected! After some initial confusion, our reservation was found. We were told our room was not ready despite arriving at 3pm. We were offered a drink and waited in reception for about an hour or so, eventually being shown to our room. No porter service was offered...

Had a wonderful chill out break for 7 days. Virgin got us there and back with no hitches. We had a ground floor garden room that was really too small for 3 of us. Shirley at reception was most helpful and moved up to a garden room with a balcony. This was much better for 2 adults and 1 Child....

I am very glad that you enjoyed your break at Discovery Bay by rex resorts and that your room move enabled you to have more space.

On the whole Discovery Bay is good value .......for what you pay. The rooms were clean but a bit tired, for example our balcony door stuck and fell off its runners, but that wasn't really a big problem. If you have to choose rooms definitely go for the beachfront ones. Falling asleep whilst listening to the waves lap up on...
