Ocean Club or OCW?

Hi, looking to book one of the above. which one should I got for? Know one is closer to the action (OCW) but is there anything else in it? OCW is slightly pricier, is there any reason for this? Is it worth the extra £200? Any info would be great.

Ocean Club West is newer than Ocean Club East. They have a shuttle between the two resorts, not sure how late they run, but you can use the amenities at both

Ocean Club East would be more laid back, and quiet at the far east end of Grace Bay beach

Ocean Club west will have more people,within walking distance to the IGA and more quite a few restaurants and stores.

We stayed at Ocean Club in April and had a fantastic one bedroom unit that we got through vrbo. It was recently renovated and we saved a lot of money by not going directly through the resort. I can't imagine there was a nicer unit in the whole resort. Unfortunately that property was not available this time so we are staying in a junior suite at OCW this April, also booked through vrbo.

We enjoyed both OC resorts, although we only visited OCW. OC East might have the best beach section of all the resorts. The beach here is wide and pretty uninhibited when walking east. The Cabana Bar & Grill was a great place to hang out at OC and it's right at the beach entrance.

OCW- You can get by without a car, newer units, better pool

OC- better section of the beach, lower rates, quieter

You can also check out our photos of both resorts, although most were taken at OC since we stayed there.

We stayed at the OCE, and we had an amazing time, really no difference between the two, whats great about the OCE is that is more secluded and you have the beach to yourself as you walk, we actually found a small reef that had amazing fish when we walked with our snorkeling gear, its literally a 10 minute walk, you get to see this if you go to Google Earth for an overview, buses usually pick you up in about 10 minutes to get to town, the restaurant Opius was great and very intimate, if you want privacy and time to yourself this is the place. have a great trip.
