"Location, location, location", this phrase aptly describes Angel Retreat apartments. It is literally steps away from the beach. At the time, it was the most affordable accommodations in Castara as they had a special of $60 per night for 4 persons. It's a simple 1 bedroom apartment with 1 bed in the bedroom and a double bed in the living area. A fully equipped kitchen and huge wrap around porch outside complete the accommodation. There is a nice pool and pool towels are provided however my kids didn't spend much time in it because the beach is next door. Lots of tame wildlife around the building and you walk down to one of the best beaches and snorkeling on the island.
I'd give it 3 stars because after a commute over 14 hours long due to ferry problems, I was assured that someone would be awaiting us at 4am. However, my kids were forced to sleep outside in the car until 10am when someone arrived to open the office. Thankfully we had our car and we're not dropped off by taxi. All calls to the owner went unanswered. Four stars for the idyllic ambiance, location and affordability.
I stayed at Angel Retreat from November 2, 2015 to November 6, 2015. The views are breathtaking. The property is quaint, rustic and beautiful. It was just what I needed. I loved sitting on the patio/balcony and watching the ocean, the trees and the sunset. The is merely a few yards walk to the beach. The customer service is excellent (thanks Steffi). I will definitely be back!
