... What differs from other lighthouse is they would allow you to go on top even if it is all rusty. You can have a great view of the island from the top. This is the second oldest lighthouse next to Capones lighthouse in Zambales Guisi Beach Resort- Stayed here. If you want a peaceful resort and do soul-searching.

... which was extremely lucky for us. After we decided that we would accept the offer we went back to the resort to make our reservation where we talked to the owner of the resort. When we told him the price that we had agreed on with his worker earlier that day he informed us that we got a really good deal, but because that is what his worker promised us that he would honor it. At that moment Steve and I knew that we were going to love Angol ...
... ticket before bidding farewell to the group and heading back to our hotel to pack up and get to our quiet beach resort via a short public bus to Tigbauan where we would be staying for the next four nights. We settled into our huge bungalow, sharing with one or two insects, and relaxed for the afternoon playing some cards and checking out the little barrio (town) that was next to the resort. During the evening I decided to open a packet of peanut brittle I had bought earlier and, ...
... kids new all the dance moves (must be from the youtube videos) and some of them were also quite good singers. For sure we joined them and showed some moves ourselves.
The dinner was a real feast with more than 50 relatives around and we felt once more the hospitality and generosity of the people and we were really blessed to be part of such a great fiesta!
After dinner the party went on with more dancing under the starts and some beers!
... was that on Guimaras, there isn't much else to do in terms of sights. There are, as there are on many Philippine islands, several beautiful white sand beaches, pretty good diving and snorkeling and plenty of opportunity to relax, however several people had told us to come here simply for the mangos!

How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
