The name Playa Estrella is a very interesting one if you translated it into its original language. We can simply translate it as follow: playa = beach and estrella = star for both in Spanish language.
Yes, that is truly interesting. So, as the name implies, Playa Estrella beach resort actually incarnates its meaning for being such a resort.
It is situated on Bantayan Island, one of the best beach jewels in Cebu Province or region. If you don’t know yet, the island has fine white sand beaches that offers great spaces for various relaxing activities to all visitors and locals as well.
Playa Estrella is best for travelers or pilgrims seeking for budget rates. Although it offers cheaper rates, it can provide the basic but great facilities and services you can find on the island.
The simple but neat and clean accommodation does not need great lengths of explanations or descriptions. Here they are...
These rooms have their own private bathroom and shower rooms. Accommodation for 2 is available for Php1600 (in this writing). Please inquire for any update in rates to avoid misunderstanding.
There are Fan Rooms available for 2 and 4 guests for various rates (2pax/Php600 and 4pax/1200).
Cottages for A Day
Guests who enjoy the place and beach for a day only, may rent a cottage for only Php150 (in this writing, 2014). It is great for day visitors for picnic and small group activity.

So, here are the things you can’t available at this accommodation.
No Swimming Pool
If you really want to swim in a pool while on this island, you can pay an entrance fee to any resort with swimming pools. Certainly, they will welcome you with open arms and avail more facilities – more expenses! They have the great beach!
No In-House Restaurant
Yes, it has no restaurant that exactly because you have lots of choices of nice restaurants with various rates and dishes available close by. So, there is not fix rate that you are obliged to pay for your meals here.
Hmm… why need a WiFi if you came to have peace and get away from the noise of the techie world. Maybe you can give yourself time for a break from chats, etc. that give you stress and migraines!
That’s right (if you agree with me!). Try just a few days without logging in facebook or any other social networking. You will find out that your head gets clearer and see things better and with new perspectives, whew! Just saying!
No Free Breakfast
