We just came back from a week at the Blue Angel and feel like we stepped back in time; you know before mega resorts and impersonal service. It’s a small rustic hotel right on the water with just the right atmosphere to make you relax and enjoy yourself. The hotel has 22 large rooms; all with an ocean view. There’s a small beach, a swimming pool, and dock from which the dive boats are dispatched. Free wi-fi in the lobby and an attentive staff and owner to make sure your stay is perfect. There’s a great restaurant overlooking the water with excellent authentic food economically priced. The 241 happy hour margaritas and excellent Mexican guitar player (he plays 4 nights a week) make dinner a romantic affair and the beautiful sunsets with the lights of Playa del Carmen twinkling on the horizon top it off. Dinner includes a free tequila shot and dessert. Choose the flan, it’s delicious. Breakfast is included in your room price and the banana pancakes with eggs and bacon were my favorite.
The dive shop is onsite and has small, fast boats to take you to the dive sites you pick out. We had a max of 8 divers on our boat. The dive masters were great; they pointed out the animal life and let you dive at your own pace and time your dive based on your air supply. Eva, the owner, went out of her way to make sure our dives were comfortable and even arranged dives in Playa when the waves shut down the marine park to all divers. Shore diving is easy with access steps away from the dive shop. On top of all that, divers get lunch free!
The worst thing about the Blue Angel is leaving; you’ll want to stay forever! We are already planning our return trip.
