Stayed in the days leading up to Christmas, diving almost daily. Dive operation is top notch, proficient, and we saw excellent coral gardens and walls. The corals looks supremely healthy. Owner is friendly and we visited the (better) beach at his other nearby resort. Went on a night dive on my birthday and was serenaded by the boat crew (and... More

Blue Star may be a 3 star resort but our holiday here was truly 5 star in every single way. Wow! We arrived during the weekly "pizza night" and were greeted by the owner/manager at the door - who took our pizza order (they have their own stone oven!), got us drinks and introduced us to the other guests who...

Blue Star offers a beautiful overlooking view of the ocean and their house reef offers a wide variety of marine life. The rooms are spotless, food is good and their staff gave quality service. Looking forward to diving here again!

I would seriously recommend this place for anyone looking for a small familiar resort with warm welcoming people, fantastic food, fun atmosphere, personal service and amazing sea views. I spent a week here in August on a diving trip through the Visayas with my sister, my sister is normally very difficult to please so I was a little worried when... More

I chanced upon this place from Agoda, we were just browsing for somewhere to stay in Bohol and were looking for somewhere away from the main touristic areas. We had heard many great things about Anda, however there isn't too much information on the internet so we weren't too sure where to stay. Blue Star didn't leave us disappointed, it... More

We stayed 8 days there and really enjoyed it, for the fantastic location on a cliff above the sea, the very nice dives with the divemaster Boyet including an incredible school of Jacks and the vertical walls, but even more for the area around so untouristic. You can enjoy the phillipino life as it was long ago. Just rent a... More

My daughter and I just spent 4 days with the team. We had a nice time. Unfortunately, Mother Nature conspired with a typhoon to Taiwan and it wrecked or significantly compromised the best of our diving possibilities in the area. Description The resort was quite nice and basic. We were comfortable. Telecom services are poor in the area so expect... More

I just can't say enough good things about this place, we stayed for 10 nights in June, we were initially concerned it might be two long a time in Anda as it looked like a small place but it is a growing tourism destination so there are many things to see, underground caves, waterfalls, beaches, they even have a cave...
