There are six ocean view bungalows, four air conditioned garden rooms, and two backpacker rooms in this dive and adventure resort. All rooms boast a terrace, shower, desk, and air conditioning in the garden rooms. A restaurant, coffee shop with a pool table and dart board, and airport transfers are some of the extra comforts you'll find at this Bohol resort. Unwind after your day with a choice of water sports, the garden, swimming pool, and jacuzzi overlooking the sea. One of Bohol's best dive sites is the Blue Star house reef which is 30 meters away from the very tiny private beach, mountain biking, trekking, hiking, waterfall, and cave excursions - just a few of the resort's excellent sporting and leisure offerings. With a full range of popular amenities and a friendly, caring staff, it's no wonder guests keep returning to Blue Star Dive Resort.

Simply love it!”
Since we decided to spend a few days in Boracay after Bohol, so we chose Blue Star Dive in Anda instead of Alona beach, a bit far away from the noisy crowd, but just what we expected for a quiet and relaxing vacation. I'm travelling with an elderly and a child, and the resort offers everything we needed for the 3 of us -- a fantastic view to enjoy especially in early morning for my mother, a lovely pool and a jacuzzi for my daughter, and all day diving fun for adults. We also booked road trips to the Chocolate Hill, Loboc River and Lamanoc Island through the resort, and the services were simply surperb!
We can recommend 😊👍”
Especially for the promo price this resort is really recommendable, especially for divers and snorklers. The staff is super friendly and accomodating! The bungalow was very clean (despite the ant problem 😁) and the bathroom great! Alao the pool is very well maintained and has cool, clear water! The prices in the restaurant could be a bit more moderate, but the quality is good. WiFi is not the fastest but at least it works 😅 For sand beach and stores you need to drive some minutes. Foreigners should know that the walls of the bungalows are partially made from nipa/bamboo, so no noise insulation, you can hear even the fan of your neighbor during night time. And his TV. And everything else 😅 So you may bring earplugs, if you have a sensitive sleep. All in all we enjoyed our vacation in Blue Star Dive Resort and plan already our next stay 👍😊🌺
Wonderful stay at Blue Star”
We had a wonderful stay here at blue star. Staff is super kind, always trying to help. Thank you to the reception and diner team, you made our stay perfect. Included breakfasts were copious and very good, they adapted to what you wanted even though not really on the menu... food was generally good and not expensive. Thank you also to the crew and divemaster Jam for the great diving. The reef and wall dives are beautiful, lots of turtle at the home reef, which can be seen whilst snorkelling too. I can't recommend this place enough, and Anda if a great part of Bohol if you want to flee the tourists of Alona.
I couldn't recommend a place more.”
I have never written a review before but felt compelled to do so this time as the place was SO exceptional. The resort is beautiful, the views stunning (especially from the cottage rooms) and Diggi and his team could not have been more friendly or helpful. We were there for ten days in August (the supposed rainy season) and had sunshine everyday with the odd spectacular storm, mainly in the evenings. The resort is right next to a stunning coral reef and all the instructors have such enthusiasm and (importantly) patience, along with expertise of the area, and know exactly where to go and when. They cater for all experiences, we were beginners and saw some amazing underwater sights, but there were others staying who had been diving all their lives and where still blown away but what they saw each day. The hotel serves delicious food and the layout allows you to be as sociable or private as you wish. We were invited along on trips - from island visits, to joining Diggi and his family for a meal at another resort - however there was never any pressure to accept, and so we had the perfect combination of quiet evenings by ourselves - lounging about on our balcony, by the pool or hot tub - or joining others for a drink or supper. Janice could not have been more helpful and friendly. She helped us with all our public transport - explaining which buses to get where - when going to the Chocolate Hills. She also went out of her way to help us hire 2 scooters and then patiently taught us how to change gears etc when we realised that the bikes were more complicated than we were used to! Hiring bikes worked very well for us as we got to explore around Anda, where everyone was friendly and around every corner there was something beautiful to see. I feel as though I am just scratching the surface with this review, as I honestly could not recommend a place more. Lovely staff, brilliant diving, friendly locals and far less touristy than most other places.
No regrets! The very first info I checked prior to booking our stay was the wifi, since my husband and I were on working holiday mode. It was fast and stable! We aren't divers, but we're always up for good reviews, thus, we booked them! Their food was awesome - big serving and delicious! It was a sweet surprise after knowing that we can also visit their sister company, Anda White Beach Resort, all for FREE (except for the transpo going there)!!! Free use of their swimming pool and you can relax at the beach with its breathtaking view. Not to mention their swimming pools (both in Blue Star and Anda White) are well-maintained. The rooms are clean and spacious. Their employees are courteous; always smiling - always ready to assist. We had an awesome stay! I highly recommend this resort and we'll definitely come back! :)
Great, quiet resort and nice diving ”
We stayed for seven nights at Blue Star and had an amazing time. The resort is a little out of ways, you need to be aware there is not much around. Simply walking to the nearest restaurants is not possible. However, the hotel organizes a tricycle for you. The small but well managed dive shop within the resort offers very nice diving at quiet and beautiful spots. Richard is a great guide - thanks for some beautiful and relaxed dives! The whole resort is well maintained and staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant offers a variety of international as well as some local food. Don't expect anything fancy, but we had good food and drinks throughout our whole stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and have a great view of the ocean. Overall, we loved our stay here and can definetely recommend the resort as well as the dive shop!
Beautiful, beautiful location. Exceptional view.”
the hotel is about 1.5h away from the bohol airport, in the quiet area of anda. facility wise: jacuzi, swimming pool, pool table. lobby and eating area taking great advantage of the fantastic view. rooms were clean, well maintained. no aircon in the room though. staff was polite, well informed, attentive and discreet. hotel food, if priced above local standards (at about us$ 10-15/meal) was excellent. reason to go (and come back): one of the most astonishing views in bohol. on the edge of a small cliff over the beautiful sea. for divers and snorkelers: hotels is very well equipped. equipment rental is painless and cost effective. the house reef itself is a sort swim away. caves, corals; tons of nudibranches, star fishes and other frogfishes/lion fishes await you. also excellent for snorkeling as the house reef is 50m away from the hotel. on the low side: enjoying the local filipino food was a little difficult as the local villages have very little choice in terms of eateries. that would be the only small negative point. i would also not recommend the place for party goers. this is a great quiet area, lost in the bohol nature & local villages. wonderful, wonderful place. the perfect quiet retreat.i will definitely be back. p-a
Blue Star Dive Resort is an amazing place to stay, the staff are friendly and always smiling while being super attentive to anything you may need. The food is amazing and pizza night was super good and really tasty!!! My personal favourite was the mango shake, of which i was having about 3 a day!! The diving is also completed in a very professional, fun and friendly way with many great locations just off shore ready for you to explore. I highly recommend this resort and will definitely return here if im in this location again!!
Great resort and ditto service”
We got a warm welcome by Patrick. He took some time to show us the resort and guided us to our room (really nice view over the sea). We got a nice mango cocktail as a welcome drink. There is a dive facility belonging to the resort on site and the crew is really friendly and professional as well. The house reef is amazing to dive. Although the price was quite high compared to the standards we had earlier the food tasted great, especially the deserts. Breakfast is sufficient regard choice and quality. The blue star resort is a great place to have some days of relaxing with great staff and a nice management. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a couple of days really off and likes a dive. Also a note to diggi for all the tips and hospitality!
Fantastic hotel and location with glorious views”
fantastic hotel, set on top of a cliff, overlooking the sea from everywhere and perfect for either a romantic holiday, a great dive experience (very good dive facilities), snorkeling on its "own" reef (100 meters from the shore), going on bohol tours in your own private car, sitting in a big spa overlooking the sea or looking at the stars or going diving. the restaurant is great and the staff fantastic. the only thing is tyhe distance from the airport (1 1/2 hour drive) and the php (one way) airport transfer fee.
Dive shop is top notch!”
My mom and I were on vacation and chose this place because I heard Anda is amazing for diving, so we wanted a resort that specialized in diving. THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Mick, the dive instructor, is one of the most charming, open-minded, and veteran divers I've ever met (over 17,000 dives over a 40-year career!). Anda is hands down one of the most beautiful places I've been to in the Philippines and staff here made our stay exceptional. I'll be recommending this place to friends for sure!
The two rooms that I reserved were ready since 0700 that day - totally unheard of. Normally, hotels and resorts allow you to check in after lunch or around 1100 at the earliest. Blue Star went beyond that. The attention that we received was far more personal than I've ever experienced due to the limited numbers of bungalows and rooms (I like that). Very relaxing atmosphere which I believe everyone will enjoy IF you stay at least 3 nights. Wifi repeaters should be strategically located throughout the resort to boost the signal.
We made a last minute decision to stay at Blue Star and didn't regret it. The diving is excellent - fantastic house reef and lots of great nearby dive sites. We managed to get a decent photo of mandarin fish mating! Rooms are fairly modern - not the best, but perfectly clean and comfortable. Food is okay - similar to other hotel food we are in the phillipines. :)
Secluded location, friendly service”
we booked this last minute and would not usually have chosen a 'dive resort' as i don't dive, but as it was easter weekend other hotels had limited availability. i think the resort sells itself short just calling itself a dive resort as you can have a lovely, relaxing, varied and active holiday there without diving. the food onsite is home-cooking comfort with restaurant standards - very good. the rooms are simple, but functional and clean. we did find that some of the extra costs e.g. hiring of snorkeling equipment and massages were very expensive. the staff are very friendly and make your stay very personal e.g. i had my birthday whilst we were there, and they sectioned off a summerhouse over looking the sea for our dinner, decorated it with flowers and gave me a bottle of wine and cake - very special.
Relaxing stay but with an optional adventure”
The place was very exclusive which was good for people who would like to be away from it all. If you like to be closer to the sea this is very good place because of the nearby reefs and dive spots. There is no beach though but for me the resort has all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay
Thought the room we booked was air conditioned. (3pax) But still it was very cool and windy even with just a stand fan. The fan had no match with the strong wind considering resort is on a cliff side about 150 feet above the sea level. The room was great and had enough room even for 5 or 6 people. The site is very quiet - a perfect place to relax and unwind. No Videoke in the surroundings which is great. Their breakfast menu (plated) is good and worth the money. But would be better if they have a buffet option. A bit far from the town proper (Anda). You can request a local tricycle to pick you up and arrange with the driver should you need transport to the Vhire Terminal if you need to travel back to Tagbilaran - But go to Guindulman town instead. Php 150 per tricycle trip.
fantastic setting, nice rooms”
nice setting an rooms, unfortunately a little off with a very small but beautiful beach; probably not ideal if you don't want to dive or snorkel; offers a pretty little pool; rooms are spaceious (didn't see the cottages) and very clean, but not very beautifully designed; in house restaurant offers decent foods but nothing that blows your mind - also it's rather pricy and there are few alternatives and or / nightlife around it seems! WiFi at the club house but not very reliable definitely great for any diving related activity (as the name suggests)
Excellent, stop here, you won't regret”
Nice place, quite simple with a staffs (hotel and diving) simply amazing. Don't pass your way, just stop and enjoy few days. Nice menu with good food for all taste. A tip, stay also the Wednesday night where you will enjoy Pizza party with a live band. Local friends also come making the place unique.
Stayed 3 days and loved it. Beautiful place, did a bit of ocean swimming, friendly staff and superb facilities. Will definitely come back to stay here when in Anda. Oh, and great value for the money.
Resort in age but still nice ”
It’s a resort in age. But it’s still nice. The room (pool view) is big. The bed is great. Included breakfast is ok the juice is just concentrate, would expect real juice for this price. Pizza, pasta and sandwiches are good and normal price for western food. Stuff is friendly. The rental price for snorkel gear is so expensive, we get on other places a whole day tour for this price. Rent snorkel gear in town. Laundry is expensive as well. You get in town for much much Cheaper. All in one you fell good but the price is to much.
