I travelled with a family of 20, and since it's a smaller resort, we all felt close enough to one another.
The pool is a stunning accent of the resort, and if possible, I would suggest requesting a room wtih a balcony that overlooks the pool.
The rooms are very modern and clean. A room with two double beds is large enough to accommodate 4 people very comfortably.
Resort staff is very helpful and polite. They all take a moment to greet you as you walk by, and any requests made (extra towels, pillows, coffee, etc.) were quickly taken care of.
The restaurant has a nice open concept. Breakfast buffet is included. They offer traditional Filipino dishes as well as the more common breakfast dishes, such as a pancake/waffle/eggs station, and lots of fresh fruit and juices.
As their website indicates, the resort is directly on the beach, but don't expect to just walk out and immediately be able to find a place to sit and relax. The watersports station is directly in front of Astoria, which is convenient if you are participating and want to observe the scuba divers preparing, banana boats, paraws, etc. There are nice lounge chairs available in front of the resort, but if you are looking for a sandy area to lay down a towel, you just need to walk left or right (also gives you a chance to walk towards the grotto). Don't let this discourage you from staying at this resort, the entire island makes up for it completely.
Astoria is located in Station 1, which is where all the shops and restaurants begin, with plenty of options to choose from. D'Mall is a 10-15 minute walk along the gorgeous white-sand beach.
