“Good for budget travelers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I stayed here with my friends a few days ago and I think the place looks simple and decent enough. We were 3 in the group and we had 3 single beds with AC, cable TV but no hot shower. For the price of 1,300 per nite I think it's a good find. Staff were friendly plus it's beachfront (just beside Watercolors dive). It's a long walk from the centre (station 2) but it was okay for me since it's less crowded in station 3. Rate didn't include breakfast.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Stayed here during the really peak season and was the last room available so cant complain too much. Room was clean but really basic. Great location as it's right on the beach in Station. Management should really think of installing hot water in all the rooms. Commendable service by the staff though. Great for a night to crash after a long day at the beach and bars!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

I booked a room in the Starfire Resort Annex for 1 night simply to see how it fared in terms of value for money, before making a decision for the remainder of our stay.
We paid 1700P for a room with cold shower only, breakfast not included. Rooms with hot shower cost a couple of hundred Pesos more per night.
The rooms are basic and on the small side, with only a bed, TV and a small closet of sorts, lacking in storage space. Bathrooms are surpisingly spacious and very clean - no ants here! All rooms have connecting balconies accessed by a back door. People could easily climb over the balconies, so be sure to lock the door at all times. One website advertises safe deposit facilities but I didn't see any. it may be worth checking with the hotel if this is an issue.
The entrance is a little inconspicuous a few steps down an alley off the beach and is easy to miss. Location is ok, almost right in front of boat station 3 so you need to walk a few hundred metres down the beach to find a decent spot to lie down. The hotel doesn't have any sun loungers.
Although the Starfire Resort Annex is beachfront, none of the rooms have a sea view. However there are 2 communal sitting areas on the first and second floors facing the beach.

On the positive side: It's clean. Good wifi connection in rooms and public areas. Helpful and friendly staff carrried our bags up and down the 2 flights of pretty steep stairs
Downsides: Very small and basic rooms. Poor insulation; I was woken at 6.30am by noisy guests and staff, and we could clearly hear the TV from the opposite room.
All in all there ARE better places to stay within this price range but if you're in a bind or don't have a reservation it's okay for a few nights. We decided to move to a room with a sea view just south of station 3 which cost only 800P per night more than Starfire's rate, and included breakfast for 2.
This hotel isn't to be confused with the main building, Starfire Resort which is located on the road leading down to the beach at station 3.
