Guest reviews for Discovery Shores Boracay

5 out of 5

WOW - WHAT A FIND!

My husband and I love boutique hotels and we read about RP in a hotel design journal, citing it as the ""one to watch"" in costa rica. Not only did RP live up to our esthetic expectations - but it exceeded our imagination in so many areas including the spa, the dining and the setting. It is absolutely first class in every respect
