This was my first vacation since 2019 so the need for R&R, and my expectations were high. Discovery Shores Boracay exceeded that expectation by going above & beyond on service, at every touch point. From reaching out to me before my flight, to the on-beach security team who were diligent, and always prepared with pillows and towels, to a chat group for butler service--the team were so friendly and accommodating that they made me feel like a VIP. They added that extra warmth for a perfect beach vacation. Will definitely be staying with them again!

This was our first non-bubble trip during the pandemic and happy to say it was great to be back in DSB and Boracay after almost 2 years. We decided and booked everything last minute as soon as kids were allowed. Mau handled all our requests promptly and professionally, and submitted and secured all the required approvals from the local government. A last minute flight change from the airline almost ruined our plans but Mau helped us make the last-minute arrangements. As always, as soon as we landed in Caticlan until we departed for Manila, we were treated to Discovery Shores' unparalleled service. Pia greeted us when we arrived and created a WhatsApp group so we could channel any requests we have through that. Everything from arranging special dinners to using the 360 pool deck were attended to right away. The F&B and Beach staff, Philip, Francis, Kay, Genalyn, Gen, Joebert and many more all made us feel at home, welcome, and most importantly safe. My only minor feedback would be on the food. While we had great specially arranged dinners, the normal menu was quite limited and the food on the regular menu was hit or miss (loved the Filipino food but the burgers weren't so great), though I do understand supplies are still a bit hard to come by and the staff is still limited. I do hope the menu is improved and expanded like it was before the pandemic soon. The island and DSB staff have been through so much with the Boracay closure in 2018, typhoon in 2019, and COVID so it was good to see the island slowly returning back to normal with a vaccination rate of 85%+. Can't wait to return again in the next few months!

We were flip-flopping whether to push through with our first out-of-Manila vacation since March 2020. When an opening came up for us last week of September, we rushed all the documentary requirements and eagerly waited for our trip back to DSB and Boracay. It was such a relief that our end to end experience provided such wonderful respite for us. From reservations to airport pick up to island transfers to the minute we were warmly welcomed and checked in by Latrell in the guest area, we felt a comfortable level of ease and confidence that health and wellness standards were of utmost priority. Of course everything was consistent -from the maintenance of our room, the constant reminders of the hygiene requirements, the space among the guests, among many things. Understandably, the usual personal perks such as foot wash, mist spritzes even the breakfast buffet were adjusted accordingly. However they more than made up for it in many ways than one. We were treated impeccably well by everyone: their Chief Joy Officers, Latrell and Melvin - the Security personnel Pabs and Collin (?); Sandbar and Indigo crew Joms, K, Kathleen and Daryl and many more whose names we regret we missed. We were VERY pleased with our experience - thank you DSB for providing us a home for 6 days. Looking forward to the next.

Best service we've had in Boracay (and we've been many times). We will definitely be back! Love the location right at Station 1. Hotel was well equipped and staff very very attentive. Our room was clean, spacious, and modern. We didn't want to leave! We felt like VIPs the whole trip. Thank you, Discovery Shores!

We've been to Boracay a lot of times and stay at another hotel so we decided to have our lunch in their restaurant. They have an accommodating and friendly staff. The food was excellent. Highly recommended resort.
