Everything is as good or better than the website - particularly the food. As this small resort is the only facility on the island, all food is included and for every meal there's a full a la carte menu with a large variety of food. It's all cooked fresh and to order - a lovely surprise.
The huts are spectacular - huge! And all the staff are friendly and efficient. The best thing was that they really seemed to care and really wanted to do a good job. The two owners were away during our three day stay and the staff continued with their wonderful, thoughtful service.
The private beach is beautiful and swimming and snorkelling straight out from the beach over good coral is so unusual. And we enjoyed kayaking round the island too. The diving centre is well run - our two boys enjoyed two really spectacular diving at the Komodo/Rinca National Park where the coral and fish were as good or better than back home in Aus on the Barrier Reef.
Another trip to do from here is to see the Komodo dragons. It is offered at both Rinca Island and Komodo Island - these islands are close together and both at least 90 mins in a small boat from Angel Is. I recommend doing the long walk on both islands (has to be guided) and I reckon it's not necessary to do both - they're very similar. The Rinca experience is more natural and a much nicer walk if you think of doing just one of the islands.
It's not cheap but remember that all food and soft drinks are included and this place is really luxurious. You will not be disappointed. Transfers to/from the airport at Labuan Bajo are straightforward. Go!!
