I stayed at the Artista for a week in August (low season) and can highly recommend it. While it lacks some of the facilities of more expensive resorts (eg, no pool, no phone or safe in the room) this is more than compensated for by the location (at the end of Diniwid Beach which is beautiful and quite but only a quick, inexpensive trike ride to the bars and restaurants of White Beach) and the staff who were very friendly and extremely helpful throughout my stay.
I stayed in room Siete which is on the second level with floor to ceiling windows on two sides looking over the beach and the ocean as well as a shaded balcony with deck chairs where I enjoyed the cool breeze coming off the water most afternoon's. There's a small cafe and bar on the roof, also with beautiful views. The menu is a little limited, but if your not in the mood to travel into White Beach to eat the resorts on either side both have restaurants. There's also free wifi.
Overall, a great little boutique hotel and would definitely stay here again. Thanks to Alieli and all the staff for making my stay so comfortable and relaxed.

... and Filipino husband Jim. A very pleasant, relaxing day indeed. My planned morning dive yesterday was in jeopardy, having not slept as much as I should. I was a little late but it was just me and Nick, so made it out to dive Camia II, a purposely sunk, decent size fishing boat. There was plenty of life including trumpet fish, nudibranchs, jacks and angelfish. Then it was time to ...

was sat asking questions like ‘why did you do that?’ ‘why did you use that size
screw and not a bigger one?’ ‘why am I asking you this question?’ ‘explain why
you performed the operation in that way’ etc. Most. Awkward. Situation. EVER. The
doctors didn’t know how to answer his questions and I was sat there thinking how
are these doctors allowed to perform these operations when the head ...

last day I was really well settled there and quite sad to leave. I had a photo

On Friday 24th we left
for Gigantes at 3am. Gigantes Islands are a bunch of islands off the north west
coast of Panay Island. I’d been so excited to go there all week so getting up
was no problem at all! Before I go ...
... jeepney. The driver decided to leave with just a few of us. The next one from PG to Cataplan didn't take long to fill up. In fact, it was so full I didn't think it was going to make it up one hill. Next up was an air conditioned mini van from Cataplan to Roxas. This driver was determined to get the max out of his van. I was the first one on board at Cataplan Pier. Then he moved it by a fruit and veg store. ...
... here and I still get confused about which way the traffic comes, I knew
the roads in Asia weren’t great but these definitely fit into the ‘watch where
you’re going or you’ll get squashed’ category. Overall though I’ve
learnt how different life here in Asia is compared to back home, in not such a
bad way though. They may live less privileged (as much as I hate to say) lives
and find each day more of a struggle with ...
