Very clean, comfortable, basic room, with fully functional amenities. Friendly, very professional staff and quiet, relaxing, beachfront location. Sadly, on our final day, I witnessed a painting crew supervisor (I believe employed by the resort) pick up an object and forcefully throw it at one of the many, abandoned friendly dogs, who roam the beach. He struck the puppy, which yelped in pain and ran off in fear. This act of intentional animal abuse, by a uniformed employee, substantially marred what was otherwise an idyllic stay. I hope the resort owner reads this review and admonishes his/her staff to NOT ABUSE the abandoned dogs who sometimes visit the property. I WILL NOT recommend this (otherwise excellent, value resort) until I receive an assurance that animal abuse is not tolerated on the Playa Estrella Beach Resort property, at ANYTIME by ANYONE.

SHOCKING!!! La Playa resort is cheap but not value for money. There is lack of management in this resort. Or there’s no presence at all!!! The staffs needs training. All of them are completely miserable!! The front desk staff is very rude!!! The bar and restaurant staffs are very unhappy, they take orders which come out incomplete, and most orders they forget! Argh, never-ending with these people. The rooms aren’t being cleaned. The towels are overly used, and the fluffs are coming out from it sticking to your body. There are no power sockets in the room. They restrict you not to bring any drinks to the resort but they do not have any available drinks coz the bar opens at 2PM and closes at 10PM!! Ridiculous. Their guard, Dino, was sexually hungry calling onto one of the friends of my family. Thess and Ann need to train their staffs, and sort out their horrendous resort.

My 7 year old son was bitten by a dog two times larger his size in this resort and the owner of the resort did not even come forward to apologise. Now my son is undergoing treatment in the hospitals and clinics all over Philippines. He is screaming in pain everytime undergoing the anti-rabies and anti-tetanus injection. This resort is not safe for children, guests and even for its’ own staffs. Do not stay there. 我 7 岁的儿子在这个度假村被一只比他大两倍的狗咬了,度假村的主人甚至没有站出来道歉。 现在我儿子正在菲律宾各地的医院和诊所接受治疗。 每次注射抗狂犬病和抗破伤风注射液,他都痛苦地尖叫。 这个度假村对儿童、客人甚至自己的员工都不安全。 不要呆在那里。 私の7歳の息子は、このリゾートで2倍の大きさの犬に噛まれ、リゾートの所有者は謝罪すらしませんでした。 現在、私の息子はフィリピン中の病院や診療所で治療を受けています。 彼は抗狂犬病と抗破傷風の注射を受けるたびに痛みで叫んでいます。 このリゾートは、子供、ゲスト、さらにはスタッフにとっても安全ではありません。 そこにとどまらないでください。 7살짜리 아들이 이 리조트에서 자신보다 2배나 큰 개에게 물렸고 리조트 주인은 사과조차 하지 않았습니다. 지금 제 아들은 필리핀 전역의 병원과 진료소에서 치료를 받고 있습니다. 광견병 치료제와 파상풍 주사를 맞을 때마다 괴로워하고 있다. 이 리조트는 어린이, 손님, 심지어 직원에게도 안전하지 않습니다. 거기에 머물지 마십시오.

The resort is nice but the staff at the front desk is not friendly.. mataray parang ayaw pa sturbo sa kakanuod ng movie sa cellphone niya.. parang nakaka abala pa ako sa kanya. Sa bar naman, their server and bartender are kind.. maliban lang talaga don sa frontdesk nila na babae.. nakaka imberna..

This is the 5th time I stayed in this property. This time I need to exert effort to salute the resort. Always the best in BANTAYAN island. From food to accommodation we are always satisfied. The crew are very well trained. Will be staying again. Try the US certified ribeye steak which is less than 1k pesos

I did not stay at Playa Estrella but went to their resort 3 times as a day guest. I loved the peace and quiet here. It is an 8 minute trisikad ride from St Fe centre (20p). Entry was 200p but consumable. Very quiet beach area to read, bathe in the ocean or have food/drinks. The staff are absolutely lovely. Very friendly and personable. A lovely place.

Start it of with service. Service at this resort is so bad. It is understaffed. No one is there to assist you. We ate at their restaurant there wasn’t even a server to help you with your needs. It is D.I.Y . Food was also disgusting. Mosquitoes were everywhere. Rooms? Don’t expect what you see in the pictures it is totally different. Rooms had an foul odor same goes with their toilet. Dingy and just plain out smelled like urine. Pool was also crammed you cant even swim or relax to this resort. The beach itself is black sand not white so don’t be fooled. The overall experience at this resort is so bad that standards to this resort failed with my perspective. Don’t waste your time or money coming here.

Wow - What a beautiful place. Beach, Sand, location, Sea, Food, Great Staff, Great rooms! - Im in love!! Seriously, it really is an amazing place, couple of bad points - so lets get them out of the way first. ITS A LONG WAY! - Yeah, the airport is easy, but from the airport by Bus is around 4 hours, and take the Bus, not a private van - they end up cramped and hot! - Better yet, book a private sea plane, pay the extra! That's about it really for the bad points - Everything else was genuinely amazing! The staff were amazing in bringing us whatever we wanted, friendly and talkative when we approached them. Helpful in whatever we wanted, and simple to deal with in English. Accommodation was comfortable and simple. This isnt 5 star, but it was clean and comfortable. Food was great - Took a while to get it out, but thats because it was all cooked fresh! Drink - They have a bar by the beach - and yes, i spent alot of time there! Beach - Clean, calm and a easy beach to swim on or just to stand in and take AMAZING photos - the setting sun is going over the hills so you will get great light, but not photos of the sun in the water. central location to the area, and easy to get around if you do decide to leave. You can even book a boat from the shore to go visit the virgin islands - honestly - better to stay in the resort, but we wanted to get as much in as possible. If you do go here, i would recommend you plan to stay a minimum of 4 days - less than that feels like a bit of a cop out for the time taken to travel there. Oh, and avoid Easter weekend, apparently its a crazy place there then too according to the locals!

I opted for this hotel / resort again because of reviews here in TA and other booking sites. For the price , some things can be improved. 1. We got 2 family rooms and 1 deluxe room , when we checked in the front office lady was initially insistent I get an extra bed since we were nine so I had to reiterate that I booked for 3 rooms , that was the only time she checked the computer monitor right in front of her and confirmed , yes we booked for 3 rooms no need for an extra bed. 2. We had our lunch in the resorts restaurant , food was good specially the sizzling squid, and lechon kawali ,the service crew even volunteered to fan away the flies that were all over the place as we were eating, plus plus points for customer service ( sorry I didnt get her name) 3. Downside food was really PRICEY including the botlled water, the only reason we ate there as soon as we settled down was because it was nearly 3 pm and we havent had our lunch yet. 4. They have a shuttle service that picks you up and drops you off in the port. Thank you for this convenience. However as an added convenient service maybe you can allow your guests to be driven around town also with this not just for pick up and drop off. You may even choose to charge additional for its use. The whole time it was just parked there anyway 5. As for our deluxe room it was new, the bed was comfortable unfortunately for the size of the room the airconditioner was small hence did not provide the much needed cooling of the room ( room 20) 6. No water pressure , hence your usual 10-15 mins shower will take you about 45 mins to finish to get the shampoo and soap rinsed off your hair and body completely 7. My adult kids complained that their toilets ( room 3 and 4) did not have bidets 8. Internet connection is only in the restaurant , intermittent in the rooms ( in this day and age I'd like to think Internet connectivity is a must provided by resort / hotel owners) 9. This one I hope the owners take up with their kitchen staff. We arrived May 10 , since it took awhile for our ordered food to be served when we came in we figured we should already order in advance for our breakfast since we had a scheduled tour the following day. I asked and confirmed with their resto crew if this was possible and they said YES, so we placed our orders for breakfast at 8pm that night and asked if it can be served at 7:15AM the following day to which again they agreed on. Unfortunately, the following morning as I walked up the resto at 7:15 and asked if the food is ready , they said NO and when told that we have made arrangements for it to be served at a certain time since the night before , the lady who mans the kitchen ( I think she is the "chef') flatly said it was impossible to do that since the AM shift reports for work at 7am . We could have been informed of this by the previous days staff. Then also, unfortunately the Fried bangus of which we ordered 5 only had 3 available 1 Tocino we can get and the rest will all have to be beef tapa. JUst to calm our nerves as it was still early , we agreed to the beef tapa replacement instead. My point here being , the resorts restaurant staff should be well aware of what is available or not, there should be some sort of coordination at least between the kitchen staff and those serving. Dont make commitments that cant be delivered. 10. All in all , if you want some peace and quiet you may opt for this resort, again for the price better service could have been provided. *** Plus points resort is gated , hence there is a sense of safety and security. The resort grounds are clean and so is the waterfront.
