While the price was actually higher than advertised on this site (the "special" price I was offered was $100/night), I still feel that the experience was worth it. I wanted to have a quiet getaway where I was right on the beach and that is basically impossible in Boracay, at least anywhere along the west coast - except for here. I probably should have chosen another island for what I was looking for, but Boracay was so easy to get to and I was curious about what it was. As it was, I was lucky to choose the Artista Hotel as I found exactly what I wanted.
There are a few other quiet getaway places around the island, but then you don't get the benefit of being able to walk along the beach to the restaurants and bars of the white beach. As far as I could see, this was basically the only place that I could wake up and look out my window to see the water 'right there,' easily pop out for a swim and relaxation on a beach chair, and still walk just 20 minutes or so down the beach and be right in the thick of the scene. And don't forget that I was far enough away from the scene to have a quiet relaxing (romantic if with a partner) night.
I have no complaints at all and highly recommend the Artista Hotel for anybody looking for a quiet beach getaway in Boracay. Even if you want a wild day and a quiet night, the staff will help you organize all the daytime fun you could want.
