Ocean Spray Beach Apartments are situated small bay. The rooms are large and are equipped with all devices which you need for cooking if you would like to cook something.Each room has its own balcony or terrace and bathroom with toilet. You may connect to wi-fi from your room but sometimes the connection is not stable. In the hotel area there is a restaurant where you may eat breakfast which are included in the room`s price. It is sometimes opened on lunch time and dinner time. For additional payment you may order extra breakfast according to their offer. In the hotel area there is also a room without walls where you may exercise joga or work-out. Fans of surfing, wind surfing and kite surfing may rent there any equipment they need and find there a teacher for such sports. The beach in front of the hotel is not suitable for swimming because of the coral reef and huge waves. It is good mainly for any kind of surfing. In the neighbourhood you may find small sandy beaches where you may go to the sea. Long sandy beaches with calm water (very good for swimming) you may find ten minutes from the hotel in a nearest village called Oistins by the bus No. 11, which costs US $ 1 per one person. You may find long sandy beaches with calm water from Oistins along the whole west coast of Barbados. In Oistins you may find some restaurants and fish market where you may eat fresh grilled tuna fish, flying fish, mahi-mahi, marlin, schrimps and lobster. Other nearest restaurants are situated in St.Lawrence. I recommend the hotel for those people who do not like big crowded hotels and want to find a relax.

My husband and I spent 6 days at Ocean Spray and wow, what an experience! The views are simply breathtaking and with a short walk, there are several protected coves to enjoy a nice swim. We were there to mainly surf, and Ocean Sprays location is great for access to mellow point breaks in addition to the more challenging breaks on the East Coast. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful each morning and the staff ALWAYS friendly and helpful. We also experienced the lack of "hot" water but it was by no means unbearable and completely understandable. Each night we returned to a cleaned and spotless room. Our experience was perfect and we will be returning with our children soon! This is a very quiet and peaceful hotel!

This property is ideally located right on the sea in a safe area in Inch Marlow, and has a restaurant open most nights for dinner and every day for breakfast. While it is about a 5 minute bus ride out of Oistins (which is the closest little area with shops and restaurants) It's a great place for some peace and quiet and you never have to wait more then 5 minutes for a bus which costs $1 USD and is a very reliable means of getting to and from Bridgetown any time during the day and night. I read a lot of the previous reviews of this place and it is very apparent that the owner and his staff make changes based on past reviews so here are the things I noticed:
- Breakfast is very well stocked each morning with a different variety of choices. It is served between 7-10 am and always has the staples (toast, fruit salad, cheese, cereal, coffee, tea) as well as hot food daily. Sometimes baked beans, sometimes french toast or pancakes. They have a very good variety.
- Wifi reception was great! Mind you I didn't really go to Ocean Spray to use the internet but if you do need to use it, it's got a very reliable signal. I even watched a couple of movies on netflix before bed.
- Despite reviews of this resort having no beach, if you walk about 50 steps to the left of the resort you will find 2-3 little beaches which are suitable for swimming. Usually you'll have the whole little beach to yourself. A great way to spend a quite day reading, swimming, and having a few cold ones while watching the surf.

We had consistent turtle sightings right from the front of the resort, and it's always nice to wake up and watch the surfers and kite boarders catching the first waves of the morning. The resort is very clean and our room was serviced with fresh towels, sheets and a mop every day. The rooms are tastefully designed, comfortable, and equipped with safes. Kitchen was well equipped with pots, pans, and dishes and was also well maintained and clean. We met one of the housekeepers and she was very helpful and accommodating.

As for the customer service aspect of this property, I have to say it's top notch in my books (and I've worked in the hospitality industry for over 10 years) Our airport shuttle was not able to pick us up, but as soon as we checked in we received an apology from the front desk, and you can imagine our delight when we were upgraded from a studio apartment to a 2 bedroom apartment for the whole week. Another thing I think is very important to mention is that we had originally booked this resort in advance for a stay of 9 nights. Due to some travelling delays we had to postpone our check in, very last minute and forfeit the first 2 days of our reservation. The resort was very very accommodating and did not charge us for the 2 nights we couldn't stay, even though we were well beyond cancellation dates (i.e we cancelled the day of) This is very impressive and not usual for many resorts anywhere.

All in all this resort has a very relaxed atmosphere, a cool owner who treats his staff well and it shows. I loved that it was close enough to the heart of activity, but still in a tranquil place ideal for some major peace and quiet! Well done Ocean Spray! If we ever come back to Barbados this is where we'll stay.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean and you will hear the waves no matter which room you choose.

My staying at Ocean Spray was very disappointing.

I had no hot water for 6 days. The owner at the end came to my room and checked the water was really cold so he offered to give me a " little discount" but then I found out
the bill was for the full amount. And the owner was gone. The staff did not care about this issue but been very rude to me. They will ask to pay everything in advance so if you have any problem you will not be able to have any leverage or any money back. Was also very noisy because of works. Wifi reception very bad in the rooms.

Fortunately there is another guest-house next to Ocean Spray called Zed where they are extremely nice and offer a way better service! Go for it!!!

Room Tip: Chose a ocean views or better go to ZED Apartments

Dear Guest,
We sincerely apologize and regret that you were unhappy with your stay at Ocean Spray Beach Apartments. We sympathize and understand the inconvenience caused by not receiving hot water. Ocean Spray strives to be environmentally friendly in various aspects of our operations, hence our use of solar power water heating. Unfortunately during your stay we had an unexpected cloudy overcast for 5 days and were only able to provide luke-warm water instead of hot water.
In an effort to prevent similar situations we have decided to install more solar panels for our apartments.
Regretfully we were no able to offer a discount despite the inconvenience as you were a single traveler who was already upgraded to a two bedroom due to your last minute walk-in booking.
Our policy is that guests must reserve through a deposit and pay balance on arrival, in your situation you kept extending your stay every two days and our front desk staff was not able to determine your exact length of stay.
We appreciate your feedback and will strive to continuously raise our standards.
