Discovery Bay Review
Considering the beachfront location and convenience to shopping, restaurants, and nightlife opportunities (all a five-minute walk from your room), the price at this resort just off the roadside in Holetown is pretty reasonable. Despite an extensive, property-wide refurbishment in 2011, rooms remain rather basic. Deluxe and club rooms overlook the beach, and superior and garden-view rooms overlook the pool and beautifully landscaped grounds. The hotel offers accommodations-only rates, but most guests choose to pay about $50 more per day for the all-inclusive meal plan. Buffet breakfast and lunch are served by the pool; dinner, often themed, is in the restaurant.
