“Perfect for Quiet, Low-Key, Romantic Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2009

We stayed in the Dominica, and it was nearly perfect. Spotlessly clean. The decor style was sort of eclectic. Loved the large shower with great water pressure. We did not have the problem some others complained about of not enough hot water--we had plenty. There were wall-mounted dispensers of hand soap beside the sink and of soap and shampoo in the shower. We wouldn't have had to bring either of these. There were also the typical small bottles of lotion and bars of soap that you find in hotels. The bath towels were large and soft and there were also beach towels. The king-size bed was very comfortable. The unit was plenty large enough for the two of us. It had a very efficient central a/c. Good TV reception and also the internet worked great. The only thing I found to be missing in the unit was a dishwasher. We ate all of our meals out so that was not an issue for us, but if you plan to do a lot of cooking you should be aware of this. This unit is on the second level and it didn't actually have a balcony or deck. There are two small landings where you can sit in an upright chair but there's not enough room for a lounger. But who cares, with that gorgeous beach at the foot of your stairs?! Lots of shade from large Australian Pines. I have to be careful about getting too much sun because of sun poisoning, so this was perfect for me. There were plenty of chaise lounges, although to be honest, they weren't the most comfortable I've ever sat in. There is a swing hanging from one of the huge pine trees that is ideal for watching the beautiful sunsets from. There is also a hammock, but I never saw anyone use that while we were there. There is not a pool, but the ocean felt great and the water is so clear that we preferred it to a pool anyway. This place is very quiet. All of the guests I saw while we were there were at least middle-aged--no children or teens or even any young couples. Hmmm, wonder why no young couples? Richard, the owner is a very gracious host. When we checked in he offered us cold drinks and a fishing pole. He also offered to help carry our luggage up. He was usually out puttering around the property but he was never imposing. If we initiated conversation he was very friendly, but otherwise he just let us be. I only met his wife, Lynn, when we were checking out.

Wonderful property tucked away behind tons of tropical foilage right on the beach.

Stayed in the Dominica and it was great. Very large front room with view of gulf and palms. It was extremely clean with extra towels, soaps, shampoo, kitchen supplies, etc. We didn't need to purchase anything but our food and ice. Bed was comfortable and shower was extra large.

Property had shuffleboard, horseshoes, 2 grills and PLENTY of beach chairs and shade! Also a koi pond and resident mooch named 'Ernie' looking for shrimp every evening about 4-5 o'clock. Laundry is right beside the Barbados unit which came in handy as we packed light with all the baggage restrictions on airlines.

Only saw Lynn @ check-in, she was very helpful with places to eat. Husband visited with Richard several times admiring all the gardening he had done. The place is a tropical oasis with all the plants and palms. Most properties we saw when walking the beach did not have the shade coverage that Angelino's has.

Saw dolphins several times and a manta ray up close (much to my surprise!)

Only negative was lack of even the slightest bit of warm water for showering. Seems it was always chilly at best, not cold. Even in the summer heat, we prefer a little warm water .

Would not hesitate to recommend or re-book ourselves next visit.

This place is wonderful. Spotlessly clean, very friendly and right on the most beautiful beach. The units are beautifully furnised and very well equipped. The hosts, Richard & Lynn, are great and are always on hand with advice on where to eat etc.
We go every year and still can't get enough

When we go to Florida we like to go to the gulf of Mexico as the beaches and wildlife are superb. We found this place, Angelinos Sealodge, which has four vacation units, all very well kitted out with everything you need. Even has kayaks and a bbq for you to use, and beach chairs and a hammock to laze in. This property is owned and run by Richard and Lynn, who live next door. Its RIGHT ON the gulf of mexico, and its beautiful. The wildlife include dolphins, herons, egrets, pelicans, sting rays, its just wonderful, and thats without mentioning the sunsets and sunrises! The sand is like icing sugar and never gets hot. The sea is usually warm. Its only an hour and 20 mins from Tampa airport, you can only fly there direct with BA at this time. We usually do a fly drive package which they call a 'consolidated fare' when you book it, its cheaper. Sarasota is nearby (20mins) and also Venice Beach and Naples are not far. St Armands Circle is nice too, and just off Longboat Key (island next to AMI and posher!) The island of Anna Maria is so laid back just like you imagine USA in the 50's. Try to find Hurricane Jacks, great food at great prices. Also we eat at the City Pier, where you can sit and watch the dolphins swim by, and the sting rays if you keep your eyes peeled. All in all a wonderful paradise. Their website is [--]
Go and enjoy!

My parents stayed at Angelino's Sea Lodge last summer and are returning again next week. I stayed down the beach at a motel with my husband and children, but I also spent some time at Angelino's visiting my mom and dad. Angelino's spot on the beach is picturesque. You could not be any closer to the gulf. Tall trees offer afternoon shade and the lodge has an awesome hammok and several great places to sit and enjoy the sunset. The grounds are perfectly groomed. We've seen dolphins swimming by and picked up beautiful shells.

My parents room was small, the smallest offered at the lodge, but nice and very clean. I would not stay here with kids. The atmosphere is quiet and definitly geared toward adults. Angelino's is actually closer to Bradenton Beach area than Holme's beach. I would recommend this spot for anyone who is comfortabable staying in a bed and breakfast type of establishment. I don't think you can find a better beach location!
