アンダ・ビーチ自体、ボホールの観光地から離れた位置にあるため観光客は少ないようです。その中でもブルースターは、広い敷地に立つ小さいホテルなので非常に静かです。敷地の緑がきれいなのと、バンガロー泊の場合はオーシャンビューが素晴らしいです。レストランからも海が望めます。 住み込みのマネージャーがいらして、皆さんに積極的にお声かけをしてアットホームにするために努めてらしたのが印象的な宿でした。他の宿泊客と仲良くなるようなことはなかったものの、小さいレストランやプールでも気になることもなく、リラックスして過ごすことができました。 敷地の端に立つバンガローに泊まることになり、木々も多く立ってるので虫を心配しましたが、蚊は不思議なくらい少なく、出たのは蟻くらいでした。その蟻も、普段から駆除に努めてるらしく、いずれにしても特に嫌な思いはしなかったです。 予約時には、既にエアコン付きの部屋が完売してたので、エアコンがないタイプになりましたが、暑い4月でも夜は全く寝苦しいこともなく、扇風機一つで事足りました。むしろ、そのせいか昔の日本の片田舎を彷彿とさせる、ホッとする部屋でした。 バストイレは超基本的な感じですが、清潔感があって問題なしです。この手の安めのホテルにありがちなことで、シャンプーや石鹸は持参することをお勧めします。ドライヤーもないと思います。 とにかく海が青く透明で、そこに立つとパラダイスに来た!って感じです。ただ、ホテルは崖に立ってて、波がすぐそこまできてるので、ビーチで遊ぶのは厳しいです。飽くまでも、ダイビングされる方にお勧めのリゾートです。(一方で、ダイビングには最高です。舟なしでも出れるホテル前の海はソフトコーラルの畑の先に大きな崖があって、気楽にダイビングできます) 食事は、正直厳しいです。また、街までは車で2時間ほどかかるので(周囲はローカルな田舎町ばかり)、宿で食べるほかありません。非常食を持参するといいかも知れません。一応、フライドポテトからパスタのソースからパンまで、すべて自家製とのことでしたので、そういう意味では悪くなかったのですが・・・ それと、リゾートの端にある部屋は、ネットが通じません。レストランにルーターがあるようで、離れるほどWiFiが弱くなります。 因みに、ここで見た夕焼け(夕陽はみれません)と、皆既月食は、本当に感動的でした。過去一年の間にフィリピンの多数のリゾートに泊まってますが、ここで見た空は、格別でした。 The managers at Blue Star Dive truly made an effort to make all the guests feel welcome and at home. We were only able to book a non-AC room, but just like the other guests mention, this was no issue despite staying in the heat of April. There is nothing more... More

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
