Leaving the weather aside, this stay was an amazing one. With the sound of waves in the night putting us to sleep and waking up with a beautiful beach and blue waters. We requested for a view that is unblocked and the hotel really gave us something we are really satisfied. Will return again for a better weather and season

When we first arrived I was a little bit sceptical about this hotel, as I'm probably used to a few more frills and modcons. After four days here we were completely won over however. The staff are amazing and the feeling of the place as a family-run hotel really comes across, with everyone you meet being warm and easy-going. The... More

One of the nicest places I have stayed in. The beach in front of the hotel is pure turquoise sea. Even if we normally tend to do a lot of visiting around, this time we just hung out on the lounges in front of the hotel. It is also quieter than the places on Station 1,2,3. You have less white...

Our vacation to Boracay was structured so that a group of us were staying in different accommodation on Diniwid beach to celebrate both Easter and one of the parties 60th birthday. We arranged for the Birthday girl herself to stay at Artista and what a great idea that was. Firstly, the staff's service is second to none; they continuously go... More

So glad I stayed here. I began my 10 day Boracay vacation on White beach and ended it on Diniwid. Diniwid is very relaxing. My room at the Artista was on the second floor and it had a sea view. The view was simply spectacular. The room was much smaller than my previous one on White Beach but perfect for... More

We stayed at Artista for 4 nights in the deluxe ocean view room. The young staff were fantastic. There were always 3 or 4 staff members around the front desk ready to answer any of our requests. They made many calls for us to make reservations, brought us lunch on the beach and answered our questions about around town. There... More

Doing my research on Boracay I decided I didn't want to be in the Station 2 area. Having read the reviews about Artista, I decided to give it a try, and am I really happy I did. It is located in a cove perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and relaxing. As others have mentioned, it is steps away from the crystal... More

I stayed at the Artista with my partner in March 2014 and we were absolutely happy with our choice of hotel. It is quietly located away from White Beach which makes it perfect for anyone who wants to stay away from the noise of the D'Mall area. The rooms are spacious and simply furnished and clean. Everything you need is... More

We choose deluxe sea view room and caticlan airport transfer. Hotel staff was at the airport on time. We arrived at the hotel around 9am so our room was not ready yet, staff arranged us another room so we could put our baggages and change our clothes while we wait for our room.
