      5/5 Excellent

      Romantic get away

      Fantastic romantic room with gorgeous view of the beach and boats. We enjoyed walking the beach and there were lots of activities available to chose from -- swimming, kayaks, little paddle boats, snorkling, diving, volleyball, pool table, to name a few. The dark bread was great! The owners were so friendly that it made for a great experience! Overall, the food was very good, but I ordered pork with a creamy sause and the sause was tremendously salty. The sause was on the side, so I just ate the pork, which was dry without the sause. In looking back, I should have asked for some more sause with less salt, and I am sure the staff would have been happy to have made it, for the staff were all very helpful in every way.

      Great staff!

      The Swiss owner Arthur and his wife Evelyn have spent 20 years building this hotel in Sipalay from scratch and they have done a wonderful job. It's a great hotel in a beautiful tranquil setting, reasonably priced. You can read the reviews on this website from my previous visits to Artistic Dive discussing the hotel and diving. I just wanted to emphasize here the real treasure there is the staff. They are perhaps the friendliest and most helpful group that I have ever encountered in my years of travel in the Philippines. Between them, the other guests and the general welcoming laid back vibe of the area, staying there is like having an extended family. Well done and thanks!

      Excellent diving, wonderful people, delicious food

      Beach front, proprietors and staff are so friendly, and so good to the guests and to each other. Wonderful family atmosphere. Dive guides and instructor / owner are over and above, very expert, very careful, and know the area so intimately.

      Pros: Quiet, out of the way, and people are so wonderful.
