The resort is a 2 hour trip from the airport which wasn't clear on booking.com but the journey was definitely worth it. The rooms were pretty basic but clean, comfy and with hot water. The food choice was varied and excellently prepared for such a small resort - beware that as it's freshly cooked though, it can take a while!... More

Dirk and his staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Even when we had a change in plans, they accommodated our changes at no extra cost. They go the extra mile to make sure you're happy -- it's not about money with these guys. Highly recommend them to anyone making it out to Anda.

We stumbled across this hotel and it was the highlight of our trip! Friendly hotel staff, stunning views and incredible diving. The hotel looks even better than the pictures and the rooms were really spacious & comfortable. The food was also the best on the island. Highly recommended.

That place is amazing, the location is just beautiful and the bungalows which are built along the cliff are good. The standard is not super high and not most luxury but that is not what everybody needs in their holidays. A jacuzzi right in the middle viewing at the stars at nigt time is a great bonus as well.

We stayed here after the earthquake and before the super typhoon. It was a nice, quiet spot. My wife and I aren't divers, so maybe not the best choice for us, but we did have a nice relaxing time. The food was decent (the pizza outstanding), and the staff was very courteous. There was only one other couple there for... More

While we did not stay in this resort (we stayed at And a White Beach), we dove with Blue star for the first five days in August. The service we received was excellent. A pickup every day was arranged and we could use all facilities at the resort during the day (restaurant, pool etc). Lunch served in the resort was... More

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
