Artista Beach Villas
Ranked #60 of 146 Hotels in Boracay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 30, 2011

We stayed there for one week and it was one of the best accommodation on Boracay Island. The Staff is so helpfull and friendly. The feeling is like being in a family house. The rooms are very very nice and made with love. The Hotel is located at the lovely Diniwid Beach and away from the busy White Beach. Good place to relax and being with local people. The owner of the Hotel is a swiss guy. The price is it worth what you get, not like the too expensive tourist spot white beach. Enjoy the wonderful fresh squeezed juices at the Bar on the roof top!!!

We had a great time at Artista!
We stayed there for 10 days and loved every minute of not being on the crowded white beach.

The staff is super friendly, the rooms are nicely designed and very clean.
They clean your room and make your bed every day (not so obvious in other places in the Philippines).
The breakfast is very good.
There is also great WIFI signal, in the rooms, the bar and even on the beach!
Attention to all smokers, it is forbidden to smoke on the beach front on white beach!!
there is a 500 peso penalty, but on Diniwid beach where Artista is located this law does not apply.
The distance to white beach is about 10 minutes walk on a lovely path that is curved in the cliff. when it's dark you can take a tricycle to take you through the road.

We had a great time, if i would come back to Boracay i would definitely come back to Artista.

We stayed at Artista for a week this week and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is situated far enough away from the crowds of White beach but close enough to get there walking or via 10 minute tricycle ride. Rooms are clean and very charming with lovely beach views.

We were there during a particularly busy October week so were happy to lounge at our own private beach away from the crowds. We would head to White beach at night for the food and explore the islands or stay at Diniwid beach by day.

Breakfast was delicious and cooked fresh upon order and all the staff at Artista were so hospitable and lovely.

Next time we come to Boracay we will definitely stay at Artista. We were happy that we avoided the hotels along White beach. Highly recommended!

This hotel is a beautiful gem in what is a beautiful island. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing and everything made fresh for u. With an amazing view.
The location is great tucked away in your own corner of the island. It is a quiet location but there are hotels like the Nami and West Cove next door which offer amazing views and food so your not totally cut off. I would def visit the fish restaurant next door called big mammas i think, they do amazing fresh prawns.

The hotel is about 15mins walk along the beach to where the mall is, which is a small area of shops bars and food places. I personally prefered being away from it all as the busy area can be a bit crowded and in my opinion is not as nice. Plus the walk is romantic. I would advise getting a tuk tuk back at night though only about 60 pesos and much safer.

The hotel room has got everything u need we were in the quattro room which had beautifu views. Room was cleaned daily and very clean. The only reason why I didnt give 5 is because I am a coffee lover and would like to have been able to make coffee in the room at night. There is a fridge but even in hot temps I need a coffee and there is nowhere to get one. I would also have a liked a hairdryer but other than that the place is faultless. I would guarantee you will not be dissapointed. If u can get the hotel to book a helicopter tour worth the money.
Thank u to all of the staff and I hope one day I get to return. I will attach pictures soon.

We spend four days vacations my girlfriend and myself.......It was a very good stay at Artista.
Instead of the others "frontbeach hotels" of the main Boracay beach without charm and noisy, Artista offers a quiet place with a smaller beach but very peacefull...:)
The staff is very discret and friendly. I recommend to take the breakfast, it is very good and the little terrace is a lovely place above your beach....:)
After 10 minutes walking through the rocks separating the main Boracay beach, you reach all the beach activities....or you can ride a " tricycle"...
The transfert from the airport is very efficient, fortunatly, because it's not so easy to reach the hotel if you're not filipino...:)
Have a good stay...

For Boracay, this hotel is fantastic. Nice rooms, beautiful location and its quiet. You can walk or motor in the party area of Boracay if you want and come back to the tranquility of Diviwind Beach. The staff are really excellent and they make a great breakfast for you (available all day). I will always stay here when I go to Boracay.

Stepping outside to the balcony you'd have to wonder if your eye's were playing trick on you. Along with the view the constant breeze you get is priceless. The water is tinted with blues and green, and its never cold.

The rooms are a bit small for my liking and the only thing that separates the bedroom from the "CR" is a semi-transparent curtain. So you you plan on going with a friend and sharing a room like I did, make sure to time you bowl movements accordingly; be nice use an air freshener!

After a few days the A/C stopped working, which was okay since all I had to do was open the door to the balcony to let in the cool beach breeze, also the refrigerator broke and had to be replace (was done promptly). There is no room service, so if you get hungry order a pizza or go to one of the two hotels next to the Artista...both stop serving after 10pm.

Everyone working at the Artista couldn't be more friendly and helpful. The stay is pleasant for those you enjoy and prefer seclusion of Diniwid Beach, rather than its big brother White Sand Beach. If your a minimalist then come to the Artista, if not then look around towards the D'Mall area.
