Went for the buffet lunch and it was more to the China - Korean market. Did find a few things to my taste but seems all the meat had that same roast duck taste.

The staff were always smiling and anticipate the our needs. They're very friendly and we felt taken care of. This was my 4th time here and the quality has never wavered. They always offer a wide spread of food for breakfast.

Good food but expensive dishes. You can find much cheaper one outside of the hotel. The staff is friendly and environment is wonderful.

The service was excellent and the food delicious. We had a variety of dishes that were shared. The fried pork belly was cooked in cubes that had enough portions for the four of us. An eggplant dish mixed with pork was amazing. The beach at this end of the island has the softest sand and is less crowded than further down.

We have been staying at Discovery Shores for the better part of week now, and absolutely love the resort (more on why in a subsequent review). Unable to come to closure on a local restaurant last night we decided to give Sands a try. I had been avoiding it based primarily on the so-so breakfast buffet there as well as the fact that very few quest use the restaurant for lunch and dinner. I now know that that is a mistake. As anyone who has spent time in Boracay surely knows the restaurant scene here is mostly hit or miss. In fact, all but a few restaurants should be avoided. So, imagine our surprised when Sands proved to be not only good but comparable in price to lesser restaurants on the island. We had whole roast chicken with rice and Philippine style spring vegetables, nothing fancy, mind you, but so well prepared. A couple of glasses of white wine and a shake came to only 2300 php ,about $50 US). Given our experience with their casual restaurant, am now planning to try their more formal restaurant prior to leaving Boracay.
