We have planned to stay here for around 7 days but we left earlier since my wife could not bear the very basic environment any further. A request for the W-Lan key was denied in a very unfriendly way. If you are looking for a backpacker type of holiday its probably the right spot.

Located on Estrella Beach, this new resort propose room with air con or fan. The room are big and clean, with private bathroom and have terrace on front beach. The owners are very nice. This wonderful and romantic place is not so far of the main street in Santa Fee.

We just came back from the 4 nights stay at the resort. We were very happy to have chosen the place and will definitely go back again. The staff were very friendly which accounted a lot for our enjoyable stay. They remembered us by names and our preferences on meals. There were families with small children at the time and... More

We stayed at La Estrella for 4 nights in February. The island of Cabilao is a gem and popular for diving. Diving and snorkelling were both very good and the dive centre linked to La Estrella is well run. There are approx. 17 huts in the resort, they are concrete construction but clad in nipa, so they are very practical... More

Don't go there if you are not a diver cause there is no nice beach on the island. The cottage is basic but clean. There is no hot water. At the time of our visit there were a lot of annoying flies. The food is nothing special. Now they have electricity until 5 a.m. This means that the bar can... More

My husband, seven-year-old son, and I spent eight lovely nights at La Estrella over Christmas. My husband first visited the resort 12 years ago and has always wanted to come back. More than a decade later, the resort has moved to an adjoining site, expanded and modernised, but has retained the same welcoming spirit that made such an indelible impression... More

This is a great resort, with some fantastic diving. Alright, it's not your 4* or 5* resort you may be used to in the Maldives, but as small hotels like this in the Philippines go this is pretty good. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but be warned there is no a/c or hot water in any of the rooms.... More
