We stayed here for 4 nights in March. The Artista is located at Din Iwid Beach, a short 10 minute tricycle ride from Station 2. This is a very quiet area of Boracay. If you are a party person, DO NOT STAY HERE. The hotel itself is a small 9 room building that reminds you of the Greek islands. While... More

.. but of course, being honest, I have to give the full picture!:) Pros: Location-On quieter Diniwid Beach just a short walk to the more lively "White Beach". Steps to "Spider House" and next door to the funky and laid back Wahine restaurant. Service: Staff is genuine, friendly and always available!.. so sweet! Cons: The property is tired. For the...

To start with - Artista is neither a villa nor offers villas!! It is a nice, small and simple hotel on a quieter spot of Boracay. The rooms are clean, rather small and basic. The washroom including toilet is separated with a curtain. The big plus point is the staff. Friendly, helpful, always in a good mood and ready to... More

Perfect get away in Boracay! It is located on Diniwid, Beach, just north of White Beach. A little quieter than White Beach but a short tuk tuk ride or walk on the beach away from the hustle and bustle of White Beach. Hotel provides door to door transportation once you arrive in Caticlan Airport. Super friendly staff, good breakfast (included)... More

We picked the best room and it had a gorgeous view. The room can have a bit of upgrading as it is very basic. Breakfast doesn't have a lot of choice as well. So it felt like the price was little bit to much for what it is. Paid about £90 a night. Would love to go back when the... More

The place is beyond gorgeous. My husband and I stayed there in late november for a relaxing getaway and we were not disappointed. The hotel is clean and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and hospitable. It felt very homely and family-oriented and made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend staying here if you want a relaxing holiday.... More

I live in Hawaii. I cannot afford to stay at a hotel in Waikiki, beachfront with soft white sand and crystal clear water, like how I did at the Artista Beach Villas. It was the best vacation I have ever had. We arrived Monday. We stayed in room Tres which had the beach view. That evening I got on one... More

From an amazing staff, the best views (room siete is simply amazing!), delicious breakfasts, comfy beach lounge chairs, the list goes on and on. They arrange for super simple and easy transfers too! This is our second time here, this time on our honeymoon and Artista surprised us with roses, champagne, and rose petals in the room! What a perfect... More

We loved this little hotel so much. Room furnishings are rustic, don't expect frills. While we were there, electricity was cut off several times. However, the charm of the place allowed you to disconnect from the modern comforts of the city. Breakfast at the rooftop cafe overlooking the blue seas was an experience I looked forward to everyday there and... More
