“A lovely place in a convenient location”
Reviewed 27 May 2011

Ocean Club West was a terrific place to stay. Grace Bay Beach is simply beautiful, and OCW has one of the widest stretches of beach. During our stay, we never had trouble finding chairs/umbrellas, and the resort offers free towel service by the pool/for the beach. The pool is a meandering oval, almost like a very lazy lazy river, and you can find random floats/rafts to use.

The rooms have everything you need: Full kitchen with dishes/pots and pans/small applicances, washer/dryer, screened-in balconies (most of the neighboring resorts do not have screened-in outdoor space), ceiling fans.

OCW is within walking distance to enough restaurants for a week's worth of dinners and then some. The Graceway Gourmet supermarket is a 10-minute walk and has a good selection, including wine/beer. The prices are higher than you'd find in the U.S., but still less than if you were to eat out. (Example: a box of cereal was about $7, a half gallon of milk was about $5.)

The staff at OCW is all very friendly, particulary Rochelle and Kharise at the front desk. (Vanessa is super friendly but doesn't seem to have a sense of urgency.)

Our first night, we were repeatedly awakened by a screaming baby in the next room. (I don't know if the poor boy's ears hadn't popped, or what, but it wasn't typical "my diaper is wet" crying.) The next morning, I went to the front desk and first asked when the baby room was checking out. Not till the same day as us, so I asked if we could be moved. At first I was told they didn't have a comparable room available for the duration of our stay, but then after management was consulted, it turned out they did (I guess whoever was supposed to get that room got an upgrade). Once we were moved it was much more peaceful.

OCW has a nice casual outdoor restaurant (just off the beach) on the premises, the Seaside Cafe. Try the grilled fish of the day -- yum! You can get a free shuttle to the sister Ocean Club east (about a 15-minute walk up the beach) and dine at the similar Cabana Bar on the beach or Opus restaurant (fancier and a very nice atmosphere), and can charge back to your room.

Other restaurants we tried and would recommend: Coyaba, Hemingway's.

We rented a car for one day from Grace Bay Car Rentals (within walking distance; for one day including tax/etc. it was about $63). We were able to drive around the entire island and see the sights in a day -- went to the Northernmost Resort (very isolated!), went to the south side -- Chalk Sound, Sapodilla Bay -- and went out to the east side where one can catch the ferry to Middle/North Caicos and drove around the Leeward neighborhood.

OCW also provides a few free bikes for use -- first come, first-served. Check the tires before riding off, we found a few with flats.

We went snorkeling with Caicos Adventures, which was a good 4-hour trip with a few stops (if you've never snorkeled before, tell them ahead of time, because the boat crew didn't give one tiny sentence of instruction before anchoring and telling everyone they could jump in). The boat made stops for conch diving (which the crew turned into conch salad when we stopped on Iguana Island for an hour), snorkeling along the reef, and for sand dollars.

All in all, OCW was just right. Not too crowded, not too desolate; in a perfect location. We would definitely go back.

This was our 1st trip to Providenciales. We chose this location because of all the reviews we read on trip advisor. Most beautiful beach we have ever been to. The property was well kept, there were people out every morning lanscaping, gardening, watering. Our 1 bedroom unit was spacious and had everything we could ask for and more. We loved eating out on the porch each day overlooking the pool and gardens. Everyone on site was always friendly. Locations was great, 10 minute walk to grocery store or a short walk in either direction on the beach to eat at many other hotels. We especially liked the Cabana Bar at Ocean Club. Very nice menu for lunch or simple dinners, nothing over $20, great place to watch the sunset as well.

My wife and I celebrated out 25th anniversary at the OCW. We had originally planned our trip for March, but had to cancel due to my son's very serious snowboarding accident. After the dust settled from that experience, we were able to re-book our trip to the OCW. The staff was VERY understanding and helpful with assisting us with making the new arrangements. We were very pleased with everything about the resort and staff. Our room, which was upgraded by the staff(1 bedroom suite) was spacious, clean, and overlooked the beautiful garden/pool area, as well as the ocean. The 2 screen porches were perfect for breakfast and relaxing before dinner. The grounds were very lush and beautifully kept. The beach and pool areas were the best on the strip.
Some of the newer, larger resorts are spectacular, but did not have the friendly garden- like setting of the OCW. It was nice having the Seaside Cafe on sight for a quick snack or cocktail on the beach. We used the complimentary bikes to tour the island's residential areas. Overall, we could not have asked for a better vacation experience. We hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Great views from all rooms, very spacious, clean

We spent a week in a one bedroom suite which was everything described on the website. Clean and well appointed...everything you would need in the kitchen, plus a washer dryer combo, great service...quiet.
We were the first building by the beach and you could hear the ocean from your room at night. The screened in porch was an absolute bonus...roomy, airy and comfortable.
The resturant by the pool had good food at reasonable prices. The wait staff were all friendly and gave great attention to your visit.
You could walk to many of the eating places, and there was a supermarket with full wine and beer selections as well as liquor.
There is a shuttle service to the airport for a reasonable price compared to the taxis.
Overall, a great resort and a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Hard not to get a good room!

We have absolutely no complains about the room. it was huge and even though we basically ate out all nights, we were suitably impressed at how well-equipped the kitchen was. It came with dishwasher, and full kitchen equipment. It's more well equipped than my own kitchen! The room even had its own washer/dryer.

The only complain we have is the spa looks sad, and always closed whenever we pop over. And the dive centre at the resort is never opened! We waited and asked the reception whom very helpfully called the person who said she will be over in 15 min, and we waited somemore and she still didn't show. We decided that our time is better spent on the beach than waiting.

Location is great, CoCo bistro is within walking distance, and since it is also right in the middle of Grace Bay, you have the option of walking to the other resorts on either side to have your meals. they also provide a complimentary shuttle to the other Ocean Club location which has a great restaurant Opus.

Word of advice: If you plan to do lots of activities, book everything in advance before you go. shops closes at 5-6pm, and good luck to even getting hold of someone on the phone!

Room Tip: ocean facing is definitely worth it

My husband and I stayed there over Easter for 5 days. The Ocean Club West was perfect for us, we were looking for some not upscale place, easy going to relax and enjoy the beach. We had a standard room with island view (top floor) which was very recently remodeled (1-2 y.) and was absolutely perfect! The screened in porch is a great extension to the room, we never closed the doors so we could see and hear the palm trees.
The beach in front of the hotel is gorgeous; but rent a car for 1 day.
We loved the nearby Caicos Cafe for dinner; casual & great food.

The entire resort was exactly what we were looking for. Beach was perfect. Location of OCW is within walking distance to all. Market nearby to stock up on essentials. Had a Jr. Suite that had a huge balcony. Highly recommend.
