Antigua was the first place we stopped on our honeymoon and I'm so glad Posada del Angel was where we were staying. It is a beautiful colonial building set around a courtyard (as are most places in Antigua). There are 6 or 7 bedrooms, we were in the Green Room nearest the front desk. As the rooms were set away from the road outside (not that it was a busy road anyway) we couldn't hear any road noise or passing pedestrians despite being so close to the front. The beds have 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, absolute luxury! Breakfast can be taken in the small dining room or on the beautiful roof terrace (where we ate every morning) which overlooks the volcanoes - nothing better! Rancheros are a must and taste gorgeous, breakfast was always started with fresh fruit and juice though! The staff are lovely, not all staff speak English, but that shouldn't put you off. We don't speak Spanish but we muddled through easily with the few words we did know. There is a pool, but test it before you go in - it was freezing when we were there in December (it's heated by the sun) but I would think it gets much warmer as the year goes on! It is certainly refreshing after a days walking around the town! The hotel is lit by candles at night, stunning! Go up to the terrace at sunset for a relaxing drink. Bliss!
