We stayed in this hotel for three nights in March. We felt like the hotel was ok, not blowing us away and needed some TLC to bring it up to the standard expected form the rates it charges for rooms.

Pros
Lovely pool area and sun loungers to relax
Decent sized pool table by the restaurant
Incredible sea views throughout the resort
Staff on the whole very friendly and helpful amid the corona virus panic!
Pizza night and live music on Wednesday was very good fun
Easy access to the sea - although very steep!
Breakfast which was included in our rate was cooked to order and very good indeed! Decent scrambled eggs are hard to find in the Philippines!

Cons
The shower offered up literally a dribble of water. It was the least powerful of all hotels in three months of travelling around Asia.
The entire bathroom unit looked very dated and in need of a deep clean / upgrade.
Room furniture looked like something out of the 80s
Food and drink in the restaurant pretty high for the local area
No restaurants bars or shops within walking distance of the resort - more a reflection in Anda as a place as still up and coming
No fan and air con too noisy / causes the room to be too hot or cold in the night time
Roosters nearby which make a racket of noise form 4am
Sea was very rough - not sure if this was just bad luck or if that’s typical of the area. It’s a shame as we went here for the snorkelling!

As the title show there is false advertising on the room description. As this is a room with a price tag of 67USD it should not be a cabin somewhere near the ocean. Actually, it is. The walls of this oceanview bungalow are made of local bamboo construction, with the exception of the front wall and the bathroom. Sounds delightful but in reality it is not. For starters the sounds inside the room is the same as outside the room. The temperature in the Philippines is not low but the room temperature is the same as outside, kind of. So, if you are looking for an outdoor experience with a full size roof this is the place. BTW, I am writing this review at 4am, because nobody can sleep as it is raining and the sound inside is the same as outside and I am actually sitting outside as it is cooler here than inside with a fan that is 3m (9ft) away from the bed. Oh, the large bed is two twins put together, so if you want to cosi up next to your hubby, not so nice.

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous 8 days in Anda and we honestly found it hard to leave! The service and care given by the staff surpassed our expectations - this is even though our stay got off to an inauspicious start as we lost one day due to the typhoon on Christmas Day. Very special thanks go out to Mick Chapman and to his lovely wife Mildred. During our stay I completed my PADI open water and my husband did some speciality dives towards his master scuba diving certification. Mick is truly a legend and I feel honoured to be trained by him - I was nervous beforehand but he put me at ease and was very supportive and patient throughout all my dives. Mick is also extremely knowledgeable and safety conscious- when my husband was stung by a scorpion fish he knew exactly what to do and saved my husband from a potentially serious injury. The dive sites were truly beautiful and there is an abundance of turtles and coral reef walls in good condition.

The staff at reception, restaurant and housekeeping also deserve special mention- thank you to Sayong,Zen, Therese, Mirabelle, Ronny and Kenneth ( as well as the chefs cooking the delicious food)- you were all exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble and they even helped arrange transportation for our friend who was staying at a nearby resort. The grounds and facilities were beautiful, clean and well maintained and everyone who works there seems to take pride in their job which is truly commendable.

Blue Star Dive resort was a superlative experience from start to finish and we left with many happy memories. Thank you everyone for making it so special!

We booked the resort after reading so many positive reviews and Blue Star did live up to the hype.

This place is just a paradise for divers. Mick, his lovely wife Mildred (my apologise if the name was misspelled!) and the rest of the team made the whole experience so enjoyable. We had a couple of fun dives with Blue Star and I also took my AOW courses here.

Everything was top notch and diving equipment was all in good condition. The crew was very supportive and we felt so safe with them. Coral and marine life here is the best I’ve ever seen. A true treasure and it is worth everyone’s efforts to protect.

The resort itself was nice and peaceful. Staff were friendly and caring. Food was not bad. But the highlight for us is really the diving centre and the sea!

We will certainly come back!

We had an amazing day diving with Blue Star. We didn't stay at the resort(unfortunately) but just came to dive. The diving itself was absolutely stunning and very relaxing. But also the service from the entire crew was excellent. Everything was taken care of. And next to the brand new equipment, little details as drinks and watermelon in the boat were very much appreciated. Mick, who took us diving that day had a lot of knowledge and shared many tips, tricks and stories. He also made sure everyone would have enough time under water. The people with more air left could dive longer.
After the diving we were invited to stay and enjoy the pool, sunset and food.
So thanks again Mick and the other crew members. We had a great day!
