Just came back from Discovery a couple of days ago having spent 14 days with my little boy. Never will I go back there in December only because of the "usuals" that have been coming there for years! What a bunch of *@#$*!! I feel genuinely sorry for the staff there: they have to smile and put up with these...

Spent 12 nights at this resort. This resort is all inclusive. The resort itself is ok for a 3* but there's something missing. The atmosphere was flat. Most staff seemed indifferent, almost as if they didn't want to be there. The decor in the main areas was a cold light blue and the cushions in bar area were either well...

Had a week here and expected the worst having read other reviews. Don't listen to the moaners! The staff are so nice, nothing is too much and they make the place what it is! Those people moaning expecting a 5* resort are ridiculous. For the price, it is just right. Impeccably clean in the rooms and the grounds and the...

My husband and I booked a weeks stay at Discovery after we had a satisfactory holiday here last year so thought we knew what to expect..... a friendly welcoming 3* hotel. How wrong we were!!! The hotel has deteriorated beyond belief with nobody seeming to care. We tried to find a manager only to be told that one was being...

I have some empathy with a previous reviewer. There were times when you had to wait for bacon or queue for eggs but, hey, this is Barbados, nothing is done quickly. If they had been to the Bank of Canada they would have found out what waiting is. Our room was clean and fresh and kept that way. Comfy beds,...

While staying at the discovery bay we noticed a few familiar faces around the hotel there were staff who used to work at the waves hotel where we stayed over 5 times.
