+ Really great diving location. All diving spots really close to the hotel. Divemaster Karl very friendly and pointed out interesting marine life. Well maintained equipment. We went at a quiet time so had the boat to ourselves. + The deluxe bungalows have amazing views over the sea and are spacious and clean. We stayed in Bungalow 1 which looked... More

Had a good time enjoying the diving and relaxing by the pool, Mick my dive instructor for my Padi advanced was very helpful and just a general all round nice guy. The rooms were clean and serviced well with good views of the reef and sun set. There is no beach directly out the front as it is on the... More

We stayed 6 nights at this wonderful place. What makes it so special to us? It`s the atmosphere of the whole place. The view from the nice bungalows and the restaurant, the friendlyness of the people, that it is not that big and you have the personal attention. We had a Bungalow with a ventilator and probably would go for... More

We did a PADI open water dive course at this resort with my girlfriend and we liked most of it, but not everything. The resort: Friendly staff and a great location with a beautiful view. The room was clean and pretty nice too. The food was quite underwhelming though, and all the dishes were somewhere between "meh" and "OK", never... More

We originally booked to stay two nights and ended up staying five. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, the food is freshly prepared and cooked when you order it - the Easter Sticky Rice dessert was especially good, as well as the pizza's on a Wednesday night. All of the staff are very friendly, helpful, efficient and professional, from... More

We stayed at the Blue Star resort while visiting family in Candijay. We have a 7 month old daughter and the service we received from the staff was outstanding. The kitchen made fresh baby food and I really appreciated the warm, friendly, helpful staff! The room was very clean and had a spectacular view. The evenings on the patio were... More

I did 4 dives with Blue Start over the course of a day. As a somewhat experienced diver who has dove a number of places around the world, I'd say the diving on Anda is world class. I stayed at a nearby resort, so can't comment on the accommodations. However, the restaurant is good. The dive masters and boat staff... More

Because the hotel was fully booked and we made a reservation at the last minute, we had different rooms for two nights. The first bungalow was a bit off the hotel grounds and although a bit tired, it had a lovely aura and was very homey. The second night we stayed at the sea view bungalow next to the pool.... More

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
