We went to Sipalay because we heard the diving was supposed to be really good. If you are not a diver and you are not in the area - there is probably not really any reason to go to Sipalay. It is far from most things and does not really have any great attractions - other than a beautiful beach... More

We stayed at the Artistic Diving Resort for a couple of nights in February. Although it was hard work getting there - we were on bikes, the ride was worth it. The room was quiet and clean, the beach is well kept and you can watch spectacular sunsets from the beach bar. The food was good and it was a... More

Clean beach surrounded by coral reef was good for enjoy snorkeling and swimming. Indeed, with diving in front of beach or after 5~10 minute boat riding, Variation of healthy coral reefs was fantastic with various underwater landscape include cave, valley, wall, sandy bottom and wreck ship of WWII. As a underwater photographer, Sipalay, Punta Ballo Beach has worth to visit... More

Nice place to stay. We stayed here for 1 night with the family from the Philippines. Ideal place if you’re looking to relax in the sun on a white sandy beach. Or if snorkelling or scuba diving is your activity this is the place to stay. This is a tranquil resort to spend the weekend, the location is picturesque and... More

The place: Artistic Diving is situated at the end of the Punta Ballo beach strip. It's accessible by road and isolated enough from the town. The resort itself is neslted on a sloping limestone cliff with rooms at different elevations. We got the AC sans TV which is ok for the price and it's fronting the beach. The beachfront is... More

On our way home (some 120KMS from Sipalay) I realised I left my ipod inside the room. Even if LBC was a bus-ride away from Sipalay, she went thru all the hassle to send it to me, which I received the day after. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESORT if you are looking for a place to stay in Sipalay.

We had a great time in this small, private yet cozy resort. The rooms were good for the price we're paying. The foods are reasonably priced. They have a small pool and a nice pool bar that serves almost all the drinks you'd want and not to mention the very friendly lady bartender and the resort staff. We took our... More

Had a very pleasant stay at Artistic after our unpleasant experience at Sulu Sunset. Their rates are reasonable for what you get, the rooms were the cleanest we have ever seen in any hotel or resort on the Philippines - our compliments to their housekeeping staff. Staff and food were good, can't beat the location fronting on Punta Ballo (white)... More

Perfect private get-away for divers, who like a laid-back and familiar european attitude. The resort personel are very nice, and the food is very nice too. There is a small pool and a very nice pool-bar, which makes the place the "liveliest" on the beach. Very cozy endeed! Personally I think this is the resort with the best atmosphere, although... More

Basic rooms, small pool but nice bar on the beach. Not much else to do if you don't dive, but the dive team are very goodwith plenty of dive sites to visit. No option for other activities such as local town visit. Food was ok but no wi-fi which apparently wasn't their fault.
