O)n a recent trip to Panama my son introduced me to Hotel Angela and owner operator
Claudio.It is a hotel with charm,warmth,privacy and a feel of family.
The rooms are well appointed,comfortable,very clean,air conditioned,great towels and pillows!
While there be sure and start your day with their complimentary full breakfast.I usually
had an omlete with anything I wanted in it,cheese,avacado,ham you name it.Accompany
it with toast ,fresh fruit and juice,breadfruit,pancakes etc.
After a leisurly breakfast relax on the adjoining dock over the ocean and watch the never ending panorama of flying fish,sail boats,waves,people fishing for dinner or siteseeing.
There are water taxis always there.
Need a nap retire to your quiet room or walk a few short blocks to main street Bocas,
lots of markets,street vendors cafes,restraunts and shops of all kinds.
Hotel Angela is wonderful,modestly priced,an extensive menu and the best food I found
in Panama,thank you Claudio and staff!

Bocas del Toro has many hotels and restaurants, but my favorite is Hotel Angela. This hotel may not be for everyone, if you are expecting 5-star everything. No pretention here, just a casual Bocas-style comfortable place to stay, eat and enjoy the Carribean ambiance. A place to lose your expectations and just relax!
It's very quiet and personal, you feel like family the very first day of your stay. The rooms are appointed well in a Panamanian country style. The common area is over the waters of the Carribean, a PERFECT spot to enjoy a beer or cocktail while your meal is prepared. Watch the surf across the bay crash on the reef, cool refreshing drink in hand as your "Catch of the Day" is prepared by the Cocinerias. No 'previously prepared' food here, the menu is always fresh, well prepared and presented, often out of the ocean or garden that very day. MMMMMM!
I could go on and on, but you are invited by me to experience it for yourself. You won't be disappointed! The perfect Bocas-casual place to lose track of time!

Mind you, you dont go to Bocas on luxury trips, you backpack. Hence, since the expectations is low to begin with, everything is a pleasent surprise! :)

Hotel Angela is a typical Bocas hotel, old, abit worn and brighly colored, but clean. Its far better than most other hotels in Bocas, unless you go for the realy expensive ones. Which you dont, you are on Bocas to enjoy life, not spend money. Bocas is fortunally not your typical tourist trap, but rather a heaven for backpackers and surfers, and I wish it would stay that way.

The food at Angelas is superb, especially when Raquel is in the mood and makes some local caribian dish. She is also fantastic with drinks, happy-hour at Angela is indeed a happy hour! :)

The hotell is placed on the outskirts of town (meaning 100meters), a short walk from everything, but much much quieter, which is perfect.

The restaurant is open on one end, leading straight into the water. This gives for a special atmosphere when you are eating while pelicans are skydiving for fish all around, and a lonely dolphin pops by now and then.

The rooms wary in size from small to a full suite. They have AC, important down there. They are not modern and flashy , but are nice and clean and everything works, wich is more than you can say about the rest of Bocas... :)

The owner Claudio is the sweetest most caring man we have ever met, and he realy made the stay something special. All in all, the service offered by Claudio and staff, the food, the place, the low cost, everything!

This is by far the best trip we have ever had, and Hotel Angela and Claudio is hugely responsible for this, and everything extra we got and experienced made this much more than a honeymoon, it became a tremendous expereince, a trip of a lifetime.

In our hearts, always!

I really liked the owner of the place. Real friendly guy. And breakfast right by the water, on a sort of dock behind the hotel was excellent. I got up early and brought my book out there. We took a tour right from the hotel. The guys picked us up and took us out all over the place in their boat. It was fantastic. Like some of the reviewers said: the rooms aren't so great. It depends on where you are though. When the ladies were cleaning the room across the hall we peeked in and it was real nice. We thought ours had a window. When we opened it, it looked out on to the bar area. But it's close to town, clean and reasonably priced.

Good location and helpful staff, but our room was damp and smelled of mold. You can get much better hotels for the same price.

During the month of November, Bocas del Toro experienced above normal rainfall, exceptional high tides. The ferocity of the ocean destroyed part of the decking of our restaurant . Was necessary to form an employee bucket brigade for several days to throw out the waters of the ocean as it entered.. This happened many days through the end of the year, and into 2009, when, in January the same phenomenon occurred similarly.

Many people, including Hotel Angela, lost boats during this stormy 5 month period.

I have a photograph of a boat traveling down Avenue Norte, which is the street in front of the hotel.

This unseasonal dampness did result in mildew and mold, which we have since destroyed. We have painted all rooms, changed the bedding and freshened the entire hotel.

Please let us know when you care to visit again? We will try providing you a room that is not near the office, however a bit costlier.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you were caused.!
