The Breakfast

The breakfast at Posada del Angel Hotel Antigua is for sure the first highlight of the day. They serve fresh orange juice, coffee & tea, a fruit plate with watermelon, pineapple and banana, bread, jam and you can choose between different kind of eggs. What makes it however really special is the location. H you ever have breakfast on a rooftop terrace with view on a volcano? It is amazing!

The breakfast with view on the volcano was for me the first highlight of the day.

What I loved about Posada del Angel Hotel Antigua

  • Posada del Angel integrates Antigua’s Maya and Spanish heritages. It is in an old colonial building and fits in my opinion pretty well to Antigua.
  • The breakfast on the rooftop terrace with view on the volcano is the perfect start in a new day.
  • The pool area is during night time nicely illuminated and the entrance area lighted with candles.
  • The whole team is very friendly and helpful and makes you feel like in paradise. They know a lot about Antigua and are happy to give tips on what to do. If there is something they don’t know, they will do research for you.

  • Posada del Angel Hotel is only four blocks away from the central park. You can easily walk the whole city from here.
  • The hotel is rather small with only 7 rooms which I liked pretty much.
  • Another highlight of the hotel is without doubt the fireplace next to the pool which guests may use whenever they would like. The area is pretty nice decorated and calm background music is played.

    I love the old fashion and romantic feel of the hotel. And the pink painting on the walls in the pool area, it makes everything all the more lovely.
