Could be better

This hotel is in dire need of refurbishment. The food options could be better. However the location is perfect. Plenty of things to do on the west coast. Sunsets here are beautiful. The staff was pleasant.

Wonderful experience

My family and I stayed at this hotel from the 14th July to the 17th July, we had an amazing time. The staff was friendly even the people in the streets had a polite demeanor. The food although it wasn't a wide variety was exceptional and always on time. The rooms and surrounding was always clean. Only reason I didn't give the hotel 5 stars was because when we arrived which was between half 10 to 10:45am we had to wait 3 hours to get our room. I wouldn't have mind but I had my 1 year old with me and before booking I asked if they allow early check in. I even indicted the time of my flight and I was assured that my room would be ready by the time of arrival. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. That was the only negative experience. But other than that I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Great find

Just back from this lovely resort on one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast. We had a lovely holiday there, the staff couldn't be any nicer, the food was good always a varied choice. We had room 302 which was on the beach with amazing views, it was cleaned every day by the amazing house keepers. The wifi has just been upgraded, it was super fast in any area, which is always a plus. The resort was quiet as this is low season, which suited us, if you want a relaxing holiday this is the place. The entertainment was minimal with a laid back feel, not for people that want to party until the early hours. We went out to the local karaoke on Sunday nights and oystons fish barbecue party on a Friday night which shouldn't be missed. Sample the local reggae bus 2 dollars anywhere, great way to travel. We did the beach walk every day past the neighbouring hotels, with sandy lane about 10 minutes away, it was amazing to see, or visit the cliff for the cocktail party on a Sunday afternoon. Water sports are plentiful, with great snorkelling just off the beach, the turtle catamaran trip is a must, where you eat party and visit a ship wreck and witness some beautiful sea life, the trips can be booked via the hotel reception or Herbie the local guy on the beach does great trips. We have been five star in the past, this was a last minute break with British airways holidays, but we enjoyed this holiday just as much, as we wanted a chilled time. Great for couples, family's, not so much kids club etc if that's what your looking for. Thank you Discovery Bay, we would love to come back.😘

Captain Morgan sunset cruise

This is pretty cool. Just when you think you can't relax anymore because your too busy Cpt Morgan, whose wife is first mate, and the rest of the crew take you away. Your phone will work but you won't be using it. It isn't so much the scenery cause that doesn't change very much but the music the cocktails and just being around other folks pretty soon you have rediscovered the art of talking. You might be able to find another way but this one was a winner. I don't know if Cpt Morgan is rich or not but he is a small businessman who is helped by his family and puts out a good time. I can't say enough about the food. Cause there's not much you can say. Reheated Costco. Recommended.

Excellent time

I will keep this short. Discovery Bay is in an excellent location. You can walk from the resort to shops, bars, etc. The beach is A1 and you can walk far along the beach in both directions. There are non motorized water sports included. The food was 8 on 10 which is totally acceptable. The cocktail menu is outstanding with generous alcohol. Did not try their wine. The bus stop to get you to Bridgetown, the Gap and Oistens is directly across the street and $2 Barbados. The staff are very professional and friendly and attentive. They are a very nice group of people. The rooms were clean and roomy. I stayed in 303 and the balcony was large and the view 10 on 10. The resort is not super lively but you can easily get to the action from there. It is worth the extra upgrade fee for an ocean front view. Will definitely return.
