We were there the first weekend of April for a family gathering.
This hotel stands alone! The grounds, rooms, staff and service are topnotch.
Valet immediately greeted us as we pulled into the circular driveway. Check-in was seamless. We were offered a glass of champagne and escorted to our room, #205, a king terrace view. Wow. The room was spacious with a large balcony. There was no furniture placed on it yet, no doubt, to the long winter, which, had mercifully just ended. But, I still stood out there with coffee in the morning, watching diehard surfers in the frigid water. During warm weather, having a balcony is essential! As others have said the baths are sumptous and we did enjoy the deep soaking tub with a bottle of pinot grigio.
What sets Ocean House apart from other resorts are nice touches; such as a pair of binoculars to view Montauk, Block Island and Nantucket, all of which are in view along with the expansive coastline and lovely beach. Also, the shower has full size bath amenities. Complimentary sodas and bottled water with snacks. And, an iPad, with their interactive website on it. You can order room service (we ordered breakfast) or request checkout, etc. Nice touch. The only little glitch we had was an issue with the tub, which, was immediately taken care of with a phone call. Even the toilet paper was packaged like a gift! Everything was glistening clean as well.
We didn't use the Spa, so cannot comment on that. I'm sure it's excellent. The fitness facilities were topnotch, though.
We enjoyed Seasons restuarant for dinners and Sunday Jazz brunch (that is another review).
We enjoyed our stay and hope to return again soon.
