We really enjoyed the place! It has a bar in the pool with nice music. The food in the restaurant was great too! Nice staff and you can ask for a discount on the room. It's not expensive anyway.......

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

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

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
