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,...

This was my second visit after experiencing Discovery Bay in 2015. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a holiday that offers a good beach and an ideal location. On my return some of the staff from last year were still there. One member in particular by the name of Mike stood out for me in terms of...

We have just returned from Rex Discovery Bay. The Hotel is very basic and, even worse, in the rear garden apartments. The entire hotel and rooms need completely refurbshing We had no safe in the room, although this was rectified after 3 safes were delivered to our room - all faulty ! The debris was all over the top shelf...
