Poor valuePosted Mar 11, 2017 on Hotels
Dilapidated accommodation in need of complete renovation. Extremely over priced for a very poor product
Comment from Hotel Management
Mar 14, 2017 by General Manager, Hotel Management
Since when 81.00 per night is over priced for a furnished self catering apartment with a/c and all amenities is over priced. This guest check in at 610 pm and check out at 9 am as he was here to work on a ship and to make such a statement is very disturbing. Especially when this guest is living in an under developed island, very poor with less infrastructure than Barbados and he lives way out in a remote area and living year for many years. There is no place in that island that you can find accommodation for the rate he paid with the standards and amenities and a beach. In that island is where you pay high prices for dilapidated accommodation for a very poor product. My property is no dilapidated in no way or shape. Maybe he wanted Sandy Lane Hotel for the price he paid for angler.

never againPosted Feb 17, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. NOT A HOTEL, CRAPPY ROOMS!
Cons: EVERYTHING. INCLUDING THE HOSTESS
Location: I DIDN'T STAY SO I WOULDN'T KNOW
within minutes of confirming reservation, I needed to cancel. I went back in to try and cancel but was unable due to loss of 1/2 the price of the booking which would've cost me $950. Only contact listing number was a Bardadian number-NO 800 number! On arrival the hostess was very rude. She said she thought I was a no show! Even though it stated I couldn't arrive until after 3pm. I had to go to the office 2 times due to the phone didn't work. Listed wifi and cable but no mention of additional charge for the wifi. 3 times I had to go to the office because the wifi didn't work. She finally moved me to another room even though the listing stated only 1 rooms left. I also commented on where everyone was seeing the listing said only one room left. She said they were coming! THE PLACE WAS EMPTY!!! The listing stated complimentary breakfast but I was informed it would cost me $25 for bacon, eggs and toast. I only stayed for one night but was charged for the week. When checking out I couldn't find her. I stood in the office for 15 minutes and finally left her a note stated I was checking out! I WAS NOT HAPPY!!!!!

Paradise's Time Machine is 30 min away from BRIPosted Jul 10, 2016 on Hotels
Chandra and her dogs are great hosts, but the room was in need of an upgrade. The lamps were almost about to snap in half, the radio was broken, the light in the bathroom flickered on/off and the TV is from a very old generation. The AC unit leaked the first night, and it wasn't until after my third night that hotel cleaning staff serviced my room. Leaving me with clean towels, but not replenishing my stock, it forced me to get creative for a hectic night. The neighborhood is nice. Bus stop a minute away ($1USD/$2BBD), the gas station 15 minutes away, and the nearest AFFORDABLE restaurant was ten minutes down the road (with karaoke on saturday). The private beach is a nice getaway if you wanna spot some animal life (or witness a sea turtle give birth... not joking) but take the term private is very LOOSE and focus more on the term ACCESS. Moments with my SO were interrupted twice by locals walking by, but liked that it was less than a minute away. If you're not an animal or mango person, then probably not the right choice for you. But if you don't mind kicking it old school and $3 wifi, then welcome to Paradise's Time Machine

Very disappointedPosted Feb 13, 2016
Very dated and a bit run down. The owner has several dogs which I was not made aware of before my stay. Hidden fees are everywhere, if you're looking for a cheap place to stay you'd be better off spending a bit more up-front to avoid the fees.

Good value for money, near beachPosted Jan 29, 2016
Pros: The garden setting. The cooking of Chandra. The quietness of the room.
Cons: The decor in the could be updated.
Location: The location was quite far from the airport. We visited Hole Town, and Speightstown. We also walked to Daphne's restaurant one evening.
We were met at the airport in Barbados, by Sandra, who had been sent by Chandra, who owns the Angler Apartments. On our arrival we were greeted at the gate by Chandra, and one of her friendly dogs. We were shown to our apartment, which had a fully equipped kitchenette, and bathroom. Chandra offered to cook us a meal, which we accepted. An hour later we were sitting eating delicious fish cakes, in a garden setting. The food was so good we arranged to eat there again the next night. We slept very soundly each night we stayed in the apartment, as there was no noise. Even though Chandra has four dogs, we were never disturbed by any of them barking. The bed was very comfortable. During the day we visited Hole Town and Speighstown. To get there we used the "Reggae Buses", which cost $2 (Barbadian) approx $1 US to go anywhere. A small beach was a short walk from the appartments. All in all a great stay.

Great Stay off the Beaten Path in BarbadosPosted Jul 18, 2015 on Orbitz
I spent 4 days/3 nights at the Angler Apartments in Barbados and was very happy with my stay! Chandra was a gem and so nice to arrange a pick up from the airport (I was going to rent a car, but honestly this place would have been difficult to find w/o GPS in the daytime, let alone impossible at night) so I was glad Chandra talked me out of driving myself from the airport and arranged a personal pick up at the airport instead $35 for a private car w/the driver waiting for you as you exit with a name sign was a bargain, considering it was about a 30mins drive from airport to Angler. The property itself is very quaint on a quiet neighborhood street. The room I had was just what I needed for the time I was there. The A/C did leak/drip the first night I was there, but stopped after the 2nd day and the room was nice and cool my entire stay. My room was very clean and every amenity was provided including pots/pans/dishes/cutlery for the kitchenette a beach towel and even shower gel was also included. The only issue I had was the night before I was to leave, the smoke detector start chirping loudly at 10pm and kept doing so every 20-30mins. I had to sleep w/earplugs the last night because the ceilings were too high for us to reach it to change the batts, other than that small snafu, however, it was a wonderful stay! Chandra's dogs were super sweet and very socialized and well-behaved. And it was fantastic of her to offer some of the mangos that had fallen off her tree. They were delicious! Chandra also arranged for a rental car for me and the guy she uses dropped off the car at the property and allowed me to leave the car at the airport for pickup. Very nice service! The folks she has working around the property are also very sweet and approachable. I am terrible w/names, but the lovely gentleman that was working on the property the day before I left was kind enough to help me wash out my shoes w/the hose to remove all the sand. The main selling point and what makes this place such a bargain is the key you get to the private beach across the street. This in and of itself was worth every penny! I had the beach to myself almost every evening and it was one of the few beaches that wasn't covered in seaweed...just beautiful, secluded, turquoise Caribbean waters!

Jewel in Real BarbadosPosted Jun 28, 2015
Pros: Superb location, very chilled, garden magnificent with key to private beach.
Cons: Nothing. Leave it as it is. Some online agencies have location just off. Clearer location directions by them helpful
Location: Located on best beaches of Barbados. Use,the buses. $1 per ride anywhere on island. St Nicholas Abbey a must. Night cricket in Bridgetown.
Visited Barbados with team to review hotels. Anglers personal choice as wanted to not only visit 5/4 star hotels, but get the real feel of this island. Hit the jackpot. Situated in BEST section of island, Chandra patron friendly, helpful and welcoming, accommodation simple but has everything you need. Dogs no problem, and great guards so make you feel very safe. The garden is very lush, attracts beautiful bird life and gives very calm atmosphere. AND you are given key to gate that takes you onto private beach, 2 mins walk away. As good as Sandy Lane's with not intruding camera lens. Paradise. This is a lovely location for families too. Loads of space for kids to play, own kitchen so remember big hotels add 150% on imported goods thus trip to local supermarket keeps budgets sensible and each apt has outside dining facilities plus picnic tables in the gardens. Just loved staying here.

A great budget stay & most excellent location!Posted Jun 7, 2015
Pros: It was quiet, we had privacy, the beach was AMAZING, the bed was very comfy and the shower powerful! FAB location for access to the rest of the island
Location: Secluded beach, snorkelling, swimming with turtles, 'The Cliff' restaurant, water skiing, Jet-skiing, diving, bus stop right there, local shops, cafes
Angler Apt's was perfect for our week's stay. We were on a tight budget as were here for a friend's wedding therefore this worked out great for us as a very reasonable rate for the week and we could self-cater. All the staff were really lovely and Chandra (owner) was most helpful and accommodating. She arranged a transfer for us both ways from the airport and she offered some catering services too. She even ensured there were beers in the fridge on arrival! We felt very welcome! The room was simply furnished, very clean and well appointed. Everything worked and was in good order. The kitchen area was fully fitted and the shower was nice and powerful. We had our own veranda with a table and chairs, air-con and a ceiling fan in the room. The biggest selling point, which we didn't know about when booking, is that there is the most beautiful secluded beach just a hundred metres away!!! The sand is nearly pink, the sea turquoise, and the sunsets immense! Just gorgeous. We were there every day and miss it a lot now we're home! The snorkelling is great; lots of fish and sea-life to see plus the sea is very shallow, calm and safe. We were able to stroll up and book our boat trips and water sports from the Crystal Cove section of the beach, with very few people ever venturing down our end (bliss!) We were also next door to the islands most exclusive restaurant 'The Cliff' and a short walk from cheaper eateries and bars and bus stops which took up to all major towns.
Tired and datedPosted Jan 21, 2015 on Ebookers
Get what you pay for... Cheap but underwhelming. The apartment was clean but we couldn't escape the dark, dingy feeling from being in a very dated, musty accommodation. Location is good and the private beach was a bonus.
