I've stayed with my family for 1 week and this is nice, small homelike hotel, i would say the best on Diniwid beach comparing with overpriced Nami resort and Spider House. We got room 9 - very spacious and clean room, free wifi. Positives - free own sunbeds with umbrellas right next to hotel, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms,...

Artista Beach Villas is in fact a small hotel at the far end of Diniwid Beach (near the Spiders Bar). We booked (and paid 100% in advance) the two ground floor rooms (at a high Christmas premium price!) but sadly the manager gave one of them to another guest so our family was split up. In spite of that we...

The rooms are spacious, clean, with air con and a balcony. It's a quiet place and most quests are couples or familys. The owners are great and really go the extra mile for their guests, very helpful and kind. The hotel is located on the other side of the island from white beach which is both a pro and a...

We stayed here for 4 nights in March. The Artista is located at Din Iwid Beach, a short 10 minute tricycle ride from Station 2. This is a very quiet area of Boracay. If you are a party person, DO NOT STAY HERE. The hotel itself is a small 9 room building that reminds you of the Greek islands. While...

Steps to "Spider House" and next door to the funky and laid back Wahine restaurant. Service: Staff is genuine, friendly and always available!.. so sweet! Cons: The property is tired. For the...

To start with - Artista is neither a villa nor offers villas!! It is a nice, small and simple hotel on a quieter spot of Boracay. The rooms are clean, rather small and basic. The washroom including toilet is separated with a curtain. The big plus point is the staff. Friendly, helpful, always in a good mood and ready to...

Perfect get away in Boracay! It is located on Diniwid, Beach, just north of White Beach. A little quieter than White Beach but a short tuk tuk ride or walk on the beach away from the hustle and bustle of White Beach. Hotel provides door to door transportation once you arrive in Caticlan Airport. Super friendly staff, good breakfast (included)...
