“Perfect Spot!”

My son and I enjoyed a couple days at this lovely close to nature apartment with a huge balcony and a view to die for. The actual apartment has a separate a/c bedroom and another full sized bed in the main room that was perfect for anyone needing two bedroom spaces. The balcony had a sofa and comfy chairs to enjoy our morning tea/coffee and a heavenly view of the bay and mountains. Birds were flitting about on the balcony adding lovely birdsong to the mix. Close to restaurants, bars, beaches, water sports and small grocery store if you wish to cook. The kitchen was fully equipped too. My son already wants to return.

“Good Location”
Reviewed March 27, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

A nicely maintained and attractive pool, beach access very close by and Sparkle is a pleasant, ‘common-sensical’ manager. Lovely, comfortable patio/veranda outside the apartment with a pleasant view, but not directly of the beach. However, the interior of the apartment is lacking relative to the price charged; very basic kitchen, property maintenance has been neglected or short-changed. Bathroom door wouldn’t close, entrance door cracked top to bottom and crudely repaired, interesting electrical wiring, not sure how clean the place was when we moved in. Bedding moderately comfortable. Think hostel, not hotel. Village close by can sometimes be noisy but not a major problem.

“Nice apartment with fabulous view”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The apartment we stayed in was huge and very clean. The balcony was fantastic with the most gorgeous view. The staff were really helpful and very relaxed about our request for a late check out. The pool was great too. Very close to the beach and Boat shed restaurant which was also great - although closed all day Saturday.

“Closer to a hostel than a hotel”

The location of Angel Retreat couldn't be better - right on Little Bay and you can literally be snorkeling on the reef in under five minutes! One of the only places in Castara with a pool which was a big plus. The outdoor space was also amazing - we spent most of our time on he balcony, partially because there were some plumbing issues and the bathroom and main bedroom smelled a little during most of our stay. Also, be prepared for there to possibly be no water at night, for showers, teeth brushing, toilet flushing, and accommodations that are much closer to rustic than we had imagined when booking...

Linda was very helpful with taxis and tours - make sure to go out with Ali Baba and enjoy several sunsets at the Boathouse!

Dear Jillian,
Thank you for the review, we enjoyed having you stay with us. We are just very sad to hear that after you left we heard about the smell in your room. I wish you would have told us when you where here would have fixed it or changed your room. We found the problem and it is now fixed.
Unfortunately the village shots of the water in some evenings, we have our own water tanks so we are not out of water, sometimes if the tanks run empty there is short while in between the changes but we are always on site to make sure that there is never any long time with no running water.
We hoped you enjoyed your stay and we are a fully services apartment hotel with cleaning every 3rd day, fresh linnen and towles and pool.

Best Wishes
Linda

“Wonderful view of the bay. Lovely beach to swim, safely and surrounded by beautiful montains.”
Reviewed August 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Really nice apartment. I stayed 3 nights .

I would add two things to this apartments:
1) A broom, so customers can sweep the sand.
2) Would make fix shower draining in apartment 1, it is not working well.

Thank you for the nice stay. Your apartment keepers are friendly and helpful.

“10 out of 10”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

10 out of 10. Couldn`t be anything less. Unbeatable location, attentive staff, spacious well appointed units, sprung mattresses, patio-balconies, pool and breakfast bar. On top of the beach and within an easy walking distance of a number of reasonable eating spots. Ideal for a quiet re-charge of the batteries or for a stress-free family-oriented holiday far removed from resort hotels, beach vendors and glass bottom boats. Exceptional value for money. Highly recommended.
