“Beyond my expectations, a great vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

My husband and group of friends (11 of us in total, occupying 3 suites) had a wonderful one week vacation. Our 2 bedroom suite, with full kitchen, not only had a beautiful view, but was very upscale and spacious. The staff was very professional and went out of their way, coordinating our many adventures and requests. The rest of the resort was also very beautiful with a great beach front view and comfortable lobby. I would gladly recommend this resort for any couples or family vacations. Thank you Malinda, Zina, Shanica and Romel for all your help with our group.

We have been to Hawaii and Mexico but never anywhere in the Carribean and we were looking for a place to take our two boys for a beach vacation (6 and 8 years old). We wanted a place that was safe, had similar conveniences to home, offered flexible eating options and was close to the beach. I would say Barbados offers convenience more towards a Hawaii vacation but with the safety/culture more towards a Mexico vacation so it is a nice option for travelling with young children.

Safety - I was never concerned in the hotel or on the beach. Outside of the hotel area you are approached by people to buy various things. Largely everyone respects the fact that you are with kids but I walked one block to the ATM without the family and was approached to buy drugs. We walked in the area at night and it was well lit and had enough people walking that I felt safe but I did feel uneasy. I would say the level of safety is similar to walking downtown in a large city and if you don't want to walk then you can get a taxi to the restaurants for around $6 CDN.

Convenience - there is a market right across the street so it is easy to pick up items. Prices for most items are similar to buying items from a convenience store in Canada and they have most things that you buy here. The hotel also has a free shuttle to a bigger grocery store although we never used this service. The room is nice and has everything you need (except coffee filters). There are numerous tours, shuttles and taxis that make it easy to get around. The hotel has Wifi that worked fine in the room and by the pool.

Eating - Our room was perfect for having breakfast/lunch. The hotel restaurant is average and we ate out most of the time. It was about a 10 minute walk to roughly 8 different restaurants so there is enough selection. Most places have kids menus; mostly chicken nuggets, etc. but not much different than eating out in Canada.

Beach/pool - The hotel is right on the beach and rooms face the water so this was exactly what we wanted. The waves are big enough for surfing and boogie boarding and the kids had fun in both the ocean and the pool. The hotel has pool noodles, boogie boards, etc. for free. The beach has a lot of rocks once you move away from shore so bring water shoes. The lounge chairs are very comfortable and we never had a problem finding one. The service was very slow around the pool but there are neat perks like free popsicles and cool peppermint scented cloths that are handed out daily.

We spent 7 fabulous nights in Barbados.
The Ocean Two Resort is a beautiful upscale property with exceptional
staff. Each staff member went above and beyond with each request
received from our group of ten. The two bedroom penthouse was spacious. Having a fully stocked modern kitchen was helpful for the times we choose to eat in. Without reservation I would recommend
this resort, for couples and or families. Special thanks to Romel for helping a sleep crazed client on her first day! Shantelle thanks for
your assistance organizing our group.

Room Tip: Ask for the 6th or 7th floor suite nice view, roomy and breezy

My husband and I enjoyed 5 fabulous days of sun sand sea and relaxation at oceans two for our honeymoon earlier this year.

We were blown away by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. We were welcomed with cocktails and cool towels and were very impressed with the comfort and size of our suite. Our favorite time of day was watching the sun set accross the ocean from our balcony.

Truly a memorable vacation and we hope to return very soon!

We loved our stay at the Oceans two and will definitely go back!
HOTEL:
We stayed at Ocean Two for 4 days 3 nights in a standard room. We had a hard of a time trying to find the hotel and drove past it a few times; they should put a hotel sign at both entrance streets so that guests can know where the hotel is located. Since the hotel is down an alley you can drive by and not notice that there is a hotel there at all. We were welcomed with a yummy fruit drink and a cold hand towel. The view from the lobby to the beach is just breathtaking. My husband went to the gym and it had all modern equipment, showers, plenty of towels, water, just PERFECT. The hotel is in a great location, there are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance. We regretted renting a car because it was not necessary if you plan on staying near the hotel on your vacation. My husband and I did not feel harassed by the vendors in the street surrounding the hotel. Yes they offer you WHATEVER as you walk by but I never felt unsafe. We just said No thank you and went on our way.
ROOM:
We booked the standard room that was nice and modern with a HUGE shower and bathroom. We had an issue with the bathroom door that was repaired immediately. If you are looking for a big room please do not book the standard room, book a suite. The standard room is not big at all but it was a fine size for my husband and I. There is no refrigerator in the standard room (which would have been nice).
POOL- BEACH
The pool and beach area was well maintained and clean. My husband and I never had problems getting a lounge chair or towels by the pool or beach. The chairs are so comfortable and feel like your laying on a bed mattress. The adult pool on the roof was TINY like a huge bathtub lol we did not use that pool at all. But the view from the roof was spectacular.

FOOD:
We ate lunch a few times at the hotel restaurant and the BURGERS were divine! Dinner was great also. The breakfast buffet was not great.
Bliss Café down the street was great for breakfast and coffee. The homemade beet and ginger juice was delicious.
Harlequin had excellent food and you can people watch from your table since it’s on the main street.
Ostins Hotel Shuttle- Would NOT recommend- We took the hotel Ostins shuttle bus on Friday night from the hotel for $15 each round trip. The hotel shuttle driver called ahead and told someone how many people he had on the bus. We were escorted off the bus, taken directly to a table, and handed a menu to order from. I thought we could use the shuttle to get there and back and could look around or choose our own place to eat. I am not sure if that was an option but I thought it was just odd that we had to eat from a designated place instead of choosing our own. Especially since we were paying for the food separately. The food at the “CHOSEN” place was not great either. There were tons of food stands and places to eat but I felt the group from the hotel shuttle had no choice. I would recommend taking a taxi or bus since Ostins is very close to the hotel and picking your own place to eat.

STAFF:
I coudn not say enough of the staff at Oceans Two. The employees were all very nice and helpful. Always with a smile on their faces and willing to help. Chantal by the pool was so nice and friendly. She remembered our names and said hello every time she saw us.

My wife and I returned to Ocean Two last month after our first visit in 2012 and I am pleased to say that it was just as good as our first visit. We had an ocean front suite again and the standard is just as good.Very spacious and with a fully fitted kitchen if you want to eat in. We had a slight problem with the air conditioning that led to a leak coming from the ceiling, we reported it and it was fixed within a couple of hours. Some of the same members of staff were still there including the wonderful Shantelle who kept us cool with her ice lollies each day. There are still some nice restaurants to eat at in 'The Gap' but if you're thinking about eating at the fabulous Pisces in the near future, forget it as it is closed for re-furbishment. If you are staying here for the first time, I would recommend asking for a room on the 4th or 5th floor overlooking the ocean if possible. It is a fabulous view. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Try to get an Ocean front suite on the 4th or 5th floor for a fabulous view.

We spent almost 2 weeks in a 1 bed suite. Facilities in the suite were fabulous and we were very comfortable.
The staff are a credit to this hotel- nothing is too much trouble.
The restaurant was a little disappointing in that it lacked atmosphere. Oceans two is well situated- not too far from the gap.
We would definitely go back again, but it is very expensive, and I doubt whether we would get such a good deal again.
