Hotel Angela, Bocas del Toro
Comfortable and friendly where you are guranteed to feel happy and relaxed
Hotel Angela is a boutique hotel built out of wood with tons of old world rustic Caribbean charm coupled with great service and excellent wifi internet access.
The hotel has 12 double rooms and a large suite with kitchen and lounge overlooking the Caribbean. The owner Caudio who has had the hotel for 11 years has created an almost magical place where everyone staying there automatically starts talking and becomes friends. Everyone wants to come back.
The bar, lounge and restaurant area is built over the water on a dock from which you can fish and pick up passing water taxis. Breakfast is served here and then lunch is available from 1pm with dinner from 7pm although if someone is in the kitchen you can usually get something tasty made at most times of the day. This is a great place to connect up to the internet and check your emails. If you did not bring your own computer Claudio will lend you his.
The bar at Hotel Angela has happy hour from 5pm until 6.30pm with some fabulous cocktails like Mohito using fragrant wild limes from Claudio's farm and the mint from just outside the door or sweet creamy Pina Colada's made with local rum.
The restaurant's evening menu is delicious with fresh caught fish, prawns and lobster from the reef as well as specialities like baby back ribs and coconut cake. Some of the vegetables now come from Claudio's farm. The chef will also come and talk to you about what she has and make up something special for you.
The Hotel's boat which takes up to 8 people is available everyday to take you on various tours of the islands for $20 per person. Starfish beach and Red Frog beach are a must.
