“Great place for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. Nice staff, on the water, quiet and clean. You can buy your own beer and hangout in the back by the water. Paid $45 a night. Great place if you are on a budget. Especially if you are not planning on spending the whole time at the hotel. It was really great for what it was. We weren't looking for pool side service so it worked for us.

Room Tip: Best place if you are on a budget.

Stayed here for 9 nights...we paid a bit extra for a suite which had more space and a fridge but no balcony which we would have liked.
The room was very clean and there was plenty of hot water...don't think that the bar and restaurant was open but that didn't bother us as we like to eat out...breakfast was ok though.
Good location close to bars and restaurants... We liked the Mana bar which was quite near...great pizzas !

It's a great place to stay. We occupied the Suite, a magnificent ocean view, wide enough for us (4 adults), if J have to criticize something.... is breakfast,
Placed in the oceanfront Street, close to everythig, restaurants, caffes.

We also asked for a bota tour, they arrange the tour for us and the boat picked us up in the hotel floating restaurant

Room Tip: Reserve in advance

We stayed in Room 6 and it was good value with a separate 'dining room' with a small table, 2 chairs, a fridge and the TV with windows onto the street. The AC worked well; the shower area was large even if it just had a plastic shower curtain, there generally was ample hot water. However, one reason we picked the hotel was the description of the food: "For your fine dining experience, our restaurant offers a sumptuous feast of delectable seafood, fresh from the bountiful Caribbean sea. Lobster, shrimp, conch, calamari, fish fillets, to name a few, are all excellently prepared, sufficiently succulent to satisfy the most discriminating palates." However, probably due to a reported change in ownership, there was no fresh seafood, no lobster etc. I don't think that any one ate dinner there and I never in 5 days saw anyone drinking at the bar which definitely didn't have "the very best selection of wines and liquors" as stated on the web page.
But for under $70 per night with taxes for 2, it was acceptable.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for Rooms 6, 7 or 9

As experienced budget travellers, we feel compelled to give an honest review about this hotel. Our family of 4 stayed for 3 nights in hotel Angela. Our room looked pretty much like a cell, with hardly any visibility towards the outside world. Nights were noisy as we were too close to the reception. The head of staff seemed to lack the elementary rules of politeness. And the best of all is that there is no breakfast on Friday: day off for the cook, nobody else around to make scrambled eggs!

It may have been a good place ten years ago, but the atmosphere is definitely gone and guidebooks should update their reviews.

Room Tip: not number 5 nor 3

Stayed in Room 3. We probably should have paid a little more to stay in a nicer room.

Pros: Good location, nice breakfast area. A/C, TV, some staff helpful although the manner was somewhat business-like and cold

Cons: Every corner had what appeared to be 50 yr-old accumulation of dirt. Leakage in the bathroom ceiling(notified the hotel but nothing was done). Stains on the wall. No division between the shower and the bedroom other than a thin moldy curtain – made a puddle of water in the the bedroom floor when shower was used. The room was so small that two of us could not pass each other comfortably.

Room Tip: Room 1,2,3 are the cheapest therefore the most poor

I'm 37 and my partner is 42, both with lots of travel experience. I have to say this place is just okay but I am used to staying in nicer places. I used to be able to rough it but i like my comforts the older i get (such as a bathroom that isnt actually in the bedroom, a place that i can walk around in bare feet and knowing that if I sit on the top comforter I'm not worried about what was left on there by a former guest... You know what I mean). If you're a fairwell traveller and see a hotel room as a place to rest your head then this place will do. The staff are friendly, good location, and clean according to panama standards. We even tried to move to a different hotel but everything was completely booked. The first day rained like crazy and this was not the hotel I wanted to sit in our room and relax in while the rain passed.
Nothing to rave about and I couldn't wait to get to our next destination.
