My daughter and I just returned from a week stay at the Ocean Club Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey. I cannot begin to describe how much we enjoyed our room, the staff, the incredibly delicious food at the Sea Salt Restaurant, our view of the ocean (steps from the hotel), or the magical town of Cape May.
Let's start with the hotel; it is breathtaking! The decor is tasteful, and the rooms are spacious. Everything is updated, and the beds are comfortable and luxurious. You truly couldn't ask for more in terms of a great room with a spectacular view!
The staff is polite, helpful, and well trained. They take their job of serving you, and meeting your needs very seriously. I apologize that I don't remember all of their names, but a few deserved to be mentioned. Russ at the front desk is a charmer; there is nothing that he won't do to accommodate the guests. He loves his job, and he is excellent at it. I'm a needy person (or so I've been told), and yet Russ was never bothered by my requests. John at the pool takes care of each guest as though they were family. My daughter and I could barely get a foot out of our door without John being there to hand us a pool towel and ask if we needed anything. The waitresses and bar staff were equally accommodating. They made us feel like royalty!!
The GM, Leo, is a true gem. His personality is perfect for his position. He is kind, helpful, and always around to make sure that the guests are happy. He makes each guest feel welcomed, and he goes out of his way to make sure that everything is perfect at the hotel. I cannot tell you how enjoyable and memorable he made our stay.
The Sea Salt Restaurant serves extraordinary food. Chef Lou makes the most delicious food I have ever eaten!! The crab bisque is to die for (I ate a bowl each night), the smoked trout is the best I have ever had, and the aged ribeye melts in your mouth. My daughter and I ate all but one of our meals at Sea Salt because the food was simply over-the-top delicious. Hats off to Chef Lou; he is the Chef Gordon Ramsey of Cape May (he might even be better than Ramsey)!!!
Treat yourself to a magical vacation by staying at the Ocean Club Hotel; a hotel that is worthy of 5 stars on every level!!
