From the minute I went into the hotel - everyone was so nice. My room wasn't ready, which was NOT a big deal as I knew I could chill at the pool. Was given a free drink at the pool which wasn't necessary but certainly appreciated! The next morning we were blessed to have breakfast vouchers and met James the server! ! He was great. His smile and constant attention was much loved! This was a "staycation" as we live locally but certainty will come back again. My daughter and I had an un"B"elievable time!

I booked the hotel for a birthday celebration getaway. I found it to have nice views, very clean stark white rooms and centrally located. The pool was on the smaller side but served the purpose. The staff in The B'Stro was EXREMELY friendly each day, and professional. The Breakfast Buffet they serve was delicious, Fresh, not filled with a bunch of junk to make it look bigger. Fresh squeezed juice, food was fresh and not reheated, etc. Definitely convenient in the morning and very pleasant experience. The View facing the Water is very nice but looking out of other windows from other rooms may not be so exciting but you aren't living there. The only negative thing I have to report was my check in process. The person was nice and professional, and handled the situation well but check in was very late. I went there earlier to drop luggage and was told my room was going to be ready around 4 but they would call me if it was ready earlier. I went back and 5:40 pm and was told the room I wanted wasn't ready yet. I would have understood if it was 4:15 but it was nearly 6 pm. It all got rectifiied rather quickly so the outcome was fine but I know others complained in reviews about check in as well. The room was quiet which made for a very good night sleep. The fitness center was extremely small but that too served the purpose. I never saw the Spa Suite they speak of in brochure so am not sure what that actually entails. All in all, it was a good stay.

Room Tip: Corner Room is quietest

Dear LBV1,

Thank you for your kind review on your recent stay with us. We are glad to hear that B'stro was to your liking and will certainly convey the message to the staff about your positive experience. We apologize for the delay in the room being ready on time as that can be a challenge when we are at maximum capacity the night before. We have spoken to our housekeeping team so they are aware of the importance of having everyone's rooms ready by check-in and will continue to work on improving this. Please come and stay with us again soon.

Best,
Lindsay

Nice hotel with great view from room and location just across the beach. Rooms have big window that makes room light and modern. The bad side is that there is no balcony. Parking is payable and it costs $28 per day (Valet) and they are really quick at getting a car ready. You have free coffee in the morning and there was free vine tasting in the afternoon. Would stay there again.

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel last weekend. Great impression right from the get-go. The lobby is beautiful. Chris at the front desk took great care of us and put us in a room on a high floor with a fantastic view (far from the elevator which I requested as per trip advisor reviews).

Rooms - We were directly underneath the banquet room and even though there was a wedding the first night, noise didn't bother us.
The beds are extremely comfortable and the shower/bathroom is great. Staff does a great job of cleaning the rooms - we left in the morning, came back mid-afternoon to a clean room.

Pool - The pool area is small but it was never overly busy so it didn't bother us. Joe from the pool bar was fantastic and really got to know his customers - great service.

Food - Breakfast at the B'stro was underwhelming and overpriced - I'd advise to skip it and go to one of the other places outside the hotel (much less expensive and better service). The service also sucked.
Poolside food was very good. Same with the drinks (though they are also pricey).
Saia sushi -- FANTASTIC food but horrible service. Worth looking past the service though.

The beach area in front of the hotel is less busy because it isn't on the main strip. I enjoyed that we were a bit far off but everything is still really accessible. We also took advantage of the bikes outside.

This hotel is really a couple spot versus a family vacation.
Definitely recommend the Parrot Bar (just behind the hotel) for Happy Hour.

Overall awesome stay and we will return.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1203 - great corner room with an awesome view.

Stayed here for one night post-cruise. We wanted to be near the beach near all the action and didn't want to break the bank. Managed to get a room at the B Ocean via priceline express deals.

[Room] All the rooms in this hotel face the beach which is across the street. We got a 5th floor room with a panoramic window and a full frontal view of the ocean. Rooms are tastefully decorated in white - furniture, walls, tables, etc. Everything was very modern, chic, and clean. The bathrooms are nice as well. My main quaff is with the rain shower. It is a european style shower where there is no door or curtain so water tends to get all over the floor.

The rooms are well insulated from outside noise but sound can be heard from upstairs units and adjacent room doors slamming. It's not that loud but if you're a light sleeper, it may bother you. The AC unit works great and isn't noisy.

[Service] We arrived at the hotel 5 hours before check in time but the staff was happy to give us a room. Everyone was friendly and helpful - we were greeted by almost everyone as we walked through the hotel.

[Location] B Ocean is right on the beach. There's a few cafes and gift shops in the vicinity and the Galleria mall 1km to the west. It's a bit of a walk (maybe 20 minutes) to the hustle and bustle of the strip where all the mega resorts are but it wasn't a big deal. There's also a public beach volleyball court across the street but you jave to bring your own ball - or buy a cheap one from the nearby souvenir stores.

[Final thoughts] We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the B Ocean. Given the price, location, and room quality, we would definitely stay here again.
