Nice resort which was wonderful years ago. Now it has a beautiful backyard with nice “Hobbit-Houses” and good rooms. The beds are good, sleeping comfort is good, it´s very quiet, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant provides good food, it´s nice to eat there.

Although me and my boyfriend didn't actually stay at this resort, I am writing this review because David and Clara are the loveliest of people and they really made our stay in Cabilao amazing. We stayed at a resort during low season which was just a 2-minute walk away from La

From the time we set foot on this magical resort, it was wonderful. We stayed in the hobbit house #2 upstairs and it was beyond beautiful. We had one night of a torrential thunderstorm and stayed nice and dry and watched the show. The food is magnificent and the diving

Hello Stephanie, For an unknown reason, I have not recieved an email inquiry from you, otherwise, I would have answered it. Yes, you can have a room in a duplex bungalow from November 10-16 at P2684. Room is with aircon, hot and cold shower, free wifi and with seaview. Please be informed that Cabilao is attractive only to divers but if you are looking for night life, you will be dissapointed. Also if you want to undertake a Bohol or Tagbilaran City Tour, it will be more expensive to do it because of the distance ( 1 hour taxi and 30 minutes boatride). So I would suggest that you do the tours beforeor after your Cabilao stay. A goodthing is that Snorkelling in Cabilao is also as good as diving which is just right in front of the resort. Regards, Estrella

Hi, thank you for your interest in our resort. Yes, we can arrange a transfer from Tagbilaran Pier to the resort at P1650 (1 hour car and 30 minutes boat) for 2 PAX or P2400 for 3 to 5 PAX. Please arrive Tagbilaran not later than 5:00 pm to reach the resort with little sunlight left and not in the dark. A whole day Bohol tour including the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsiers can be organized from La Estrella. To get to Apo Island you have to go from Tagilaran to Dumaguete then to Zamboanguita and to Apo Island. Please Google for more info on how to get to Apo island as I myself have not been to that island yet. Once again, thank you and warm regards, Estrella

Hi Adrianzoe..., Thank you for your interest in La Estrella. We have rooms/bungalows that can accomodate 3 PAX, like the Aframe bungalows and 4 rooms in a duplex bungalow. Our family rooms ( we only have 2 of them) can accomodate up to 5 persons, 1 bed for a couple, 2 single beds upstairs and an extra bed downstairs. The rest of the rooms/bungalows can accomodate only 2 PAX.

La Estrella Beach Resort has clean and simple fan rooms in the midst of nature. It has a restaurant with good food and a dive shop/school. Diving here is at its best and most guests are divers who come to stay for good diving and for the peace and quite of the place. If you are looking for night life, then this is not the place for you.
