A lovely place, where to meet lovely people, staff and guests alike. Cleanliness is notable everywhere. The atmosphere is relaxed and with a good balance of divers/non-divers, couples, singles, families and local beach activity. Diving is also very relaxed, and it was nice to see relatively healthy corals and minimal rubbish underwater, likely thanks to the well established protected areas....

Artistic has decent-sized and comfortable sea-facing cottages with easy access to Punta Ballo beach. Each cottage has a private balcony and hot-water bathroom set in a well-tended beachside garden. We stayed in one of the deluxe villas which offered basic, no-frills accommodations. The resort caters largely to diving enthusiasts but offers adequate amenities to other guests.

Sipalay has a special place in my heart. The area still unknown to the mass tourism is great for a quiet getaway. The staff at artistic is amazing and so kind. The accommodation is simple (we had the rooms on the beach), but really include everything you need. Clean, comfy beds, shower and toilet + airconditioning and a swimming pool....

We have travelled a few islands and Negros is my favorite because of the stunning scenery and gorgeous beaches. What a delight to then find this laid back resort which screams class and sophistication in a shabby chic style. It is not one of the posh resorts. The prices for rooms, food, drinks and activities is fair. The staff are...

If you are planning not to stay in Sugar Beach but still want a great scenic view, this is right place to be. It few minutes from the market where you can find other restaurants if you find their restaurant very costly. It was raining hard the night we went there and good thing they have generator during the brown...

Staying only a single night it's hard to tell too much of the place. The meals we had were good and prepared in a timely manner and served by polite and attentive staff. The girls in the bar did a good job, and whipped us up a good number of cocktails and went out of their way to provide for...

A great place to spend a beach vacation. The place is clean and well-maintained with friendly and accommodating staff. Parking is limited though and the pork sinigang we ordered was so hard and rubbery even after we requested to have it recooked. Overall, service is good and of course, the beach is wonderful!

Very accommodating for diving – second day the dive boat went out really late due to tides, nice pool, breakfast was good and some variety mostly Filipino food. Rooms were basic, nice view. Very happy with the owner and the staff. Nice beach to walk to other resorts.

A commendable place to enjoy summer and bond with family or friends. The room we stayed in was clean and quite spacious and has a very nice view of the beach upfront. If you get tired of the white sand beach, you can transfer to their pool which accomodates both kids and adults and even has a poolside bar which...
