We have been coming to La Estrella as a family for many many years. This time, Babie the owner has made changes to the place - selling a portion to another owner, keeping five cottages, and building a few more rooms. So it wasn't the same place that we have become familiar with (some construction going on, which is why...

Thank you Tess for this wonderful review. You and Ed were the best in my first time ever TaiChi class. Wow! You taught us TaiChi with precision and coordination and looking at you perform the steps was more of an inspiration for us your students to crave for more sessions. Bruno was A.

We stayed at La Estrella with our 3 children over the Christmas holidays . We were looking for a place which was laid-back, off the beaten track, family friendly, with snorkeling accessible from the beach so that we can practice as a family. The kids befriended the local Filino kids and Estrella grand-daugthers from the village whilst we sipped San...

We stayed 3 nights. The huts are very nice, spacious and with hot water. Super friendly staff, perfect service. For divers, Robert is a very experienced done instructor, and the dives are fantastic. It was fun to be almost the only non-German speakers!

La Estrella has god food (home made muesli for breakfast and home made bread for lunch sandwiches are both fantastic). Room 16 had a good strong fan and mosquito net (highly recommend using this). Usually has 24 hour electricity however I was there just after a typhoon and electricity from mainland was down so reliant on the La Estrella generator...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here in early December. If you are a diver and/or you want to get away to a very quiet, remote place in the Philippines, this is the place for you. If neither is true, a place on Panglao Island would be a better bet. I wanted to experience diving in Cabilao as well as get...

We stayed at La Estrella over a weekend in late August. The resort can arrange transport from the pier at Sandigan island, or you can take the public bangka across (20 php per person) and then hire a motorcycle driver to the resort (60 php). There are only 3 resorts on this side of the island and nothing else. Due...

My friend and I stayed with Estrella at the beginning of August and had a really wonderful time here at this superbly clean and welcoming little hotel right on the beach. We had the place to ourselves, enjoyed the empty beach amongst peaceful palm trees and nature, and spent a day diving just the two of us (and then later,...

I stayed at La Estrella Beach Resort for 2 weeks in May 2014. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this lovely place.

i was there 2 nights. Amazing place! it seems to be by a swiss lake: calm waters and silence. The hotel provide the basic services (and the price is consequently extremely low) and you must be accept it. For instance, dinner and breakfast are on demand and expressely made. So it takes time and people in rush should not go...

We stayed there for few nights in Feb 2014. There weren't many guests at the time so was very peaceful and quiet. A beautiful resort, simple and unspoiled.

Hello Yuliana, Thank you for your review. It will help us improve our services.
