We've just spent 5 days (2nd-7th July 2014) staying at the Blue Star resort and had a wonderful time. The hospitality was second to none. The owners Dirk and Jessi were especially helpful, organising babysitting for our 4 year old daughter Katie whenever we went diving. What can I say? The diving, rooms, food, views and staff were all great.... More

Lets start with the positive....the view....it's stunning, like paradise with knobs on :D The internet was ace and the staff were helpful. From there though...well, as the title says...meh. So, when we arrived, the staff who let us into the room found that the main light didn't work, did they fix it, naaah, so when we came back each night,... More

Wonderfull setting of the bungalows on top of a rock (i guess 25 m above sealevel). All bungalows have seaview plus a very big terrace... More

I did not have a good night sleep just because i was too excited listening to the wonderful sound of nature, and watching the super bright stars from my bed. Service is great as long as you use the service of the resort. Since tours/transportation are a bit pricey we were trying to organize some more affordable options for us... More

We were drawn to the Blue Star dive resort due to its reputation as one of the best places around for scuba diving, and in particular for the macro on offer. We were so absolutely thrilled with diving and staying there that I felt compelled to make an account here to sing the praises of this place…. For the divers... More

We actually live in Anda but we have recommended Bluestar to friends as we have become regular visitors ourselves (for the pool, diving and restaurant). We visit regularly as our son takes diving lessons there (brilliant instruction for kids btw) and we try not to miss the pizza nights on wednesdays. I can thoroughly recommend Bluestar for anyone wanting a... More

We came back a couple of weeks ago from Bohol after six nights at the hotel. Consider it perfect if you look for a place with one of the best possible environment (unlimited view of the ocean, great coral reef just a few meters from the shore and other diving spots quite close), with simple but efficient amenities (open-air jacuzzi,...
