“absolutely paradise”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

My Husband And I just returned from Ocean Two Resort. We had never been to Barbados before but have traveled a lot through the Caribbean and we must say this is now on the top of our list as a must go back. The hotel is located in a great location you can walk right into St Lawrence Gap to many Restaurants, shops, etc. It is never a problem to get a taxi as they are always out front and we did also use the public bus which the bus stop is only a short 10 minute walk. We have never felt so relaxed on vacation as we did at Ocean Two Resort but also in Barbados. The staff as well as natives are wonderful people very warm and friendly. We absolutely would recommend this hotel. Also our room was 302 what an awesome room and Oceanfront would ask for the same room again.

Room Tip: room 302 was Oceanfront great view ,very quiet and house keeping was awesome room,s always clean and...

We stayed at this hotel for a week. It was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing was to much trouble. Luke the catering manager and all his team were fantastic. Amazing cocktails.
We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite. It was spacious, clean, with a fully equipped kitchen. The air conditioning worked ( Hooray!!!) lots on offere at the hotel in the evening, the cocktail party on Wednesday evening on the roof top is a nice touch.
The hotel is 3 years old I hope the can maintain the standards. My one grip was that housekeeping was slow. The rooms were not serviced until late in the afternoon so if you wanted to retun to the room for a seiasta, the room would not be serviced.

Room Tip: Book for a sea facing room

I came to Barbados BY MYSELF and let me say..........I had a blast! Anything I wanted/needed was given to me. Zina (I think that's her name) was EXTREMELY helpful and patient in helping me decide on which tours or activities I should go on. The food they served was delicious, but I saved a lot more money by going to the local food mart and cooking in my suite. Speaking of, the suites are GORGEOUS! Very well kept and a very nice view. And the beds are soooo comfy!

The only down side was that although the staff was quick to change my U.S. dollars to Bajan dollars, for some reason, they couldn't change it back to U.S. dollars when it was time for me to leave. So I had to pay an extra fee when I arrived at the airport (major pain). But other than that.....I had a blast!!!!

Dear Dem D,

Thank you for sharing this review of your recent Ocean Two holiday experience! It is a pleasure to know that you thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of your stay with us, particularly our well-appointed suites and our favorable location.

At Ocean Two, we do provide our guests with the convenience of an on-property Foreign Exchange service which exchanges foreign currency to local Barbados dollars, however, the laws of Barbados only permits banking institutions to exchange Barbados dollars to foreign currency.

Overall, it appears as though you had a great time here with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

starting with the warm smiles at the cooling tower also that greeted us at our arrival or stay at oceans 2 exceeded our expectations. The staff was helpful friendly and courteous. The accommodations were clean, luxurious and well appointed. The views was marvelous and the location stunning. We really enjoyed our trip. A lovely hotel at a very reasonable cost.
This hard to please traveler highly recommends this hotel.

From the moment we arrived at ocean 2 I knew we had made the right decision! First of all let me start by saying ocean 2 is by far the most attractive property in the gap. Other places seem a little run down exterior wise, but not ocean 2! When we arrived a bellman assisted with our luggage and we were told our bags would be waiting for us in our rooms (hassle free). We were greeted by Shanica's smiling faced and escorted to relax while she gathered our paperwork. The view from the lobby...breathtaking! We were immediately offered a refreshing cocktail, and quickly went over paper work (there is a $400 deposit). We were then escorted to our ocean front room ( more like condo). Shanica toured us around our room, and showed us the need to knows of the room! You must book an oceanfront room the view is breathtaking! Oh and let me not forget to mention how clean our condo was, I would literally eat off the floor!! I'm a stickler for cleanliness and this passed my test with flying colors. The bed, oh the bed, me and my boyfriend struggled every morning to wake up in time for excursions because the bed was so plush!
Perfect location as well, we walked to the gap every night which was a 10-15 minute breezy walk!
Stay at Ocean 2, as an avid traveler, sticker for cleanliness, and slave to luxury I promise you will NOT regret it!!

I am writing this review on the plane back from Barbados. The Oceans Two hotel actually own hotel of the year in Barbados yesterday and i can certainly see why!

Where to start...

Location:
Perfection! 10 minutes from the airport , 5 minute walk from st Lawrence gap bars and restaurants.
Only thing is the sea at this hotel is the meeting point of the Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean so it can get wavey, water is warm though, also it's so easy to walk to or drive 15 mins to the Caribbean beaches it doesn't honestly matter and it's not bad at all.

The Staff:
The staff at this hotel were truly kind people, and what struck me was it wasn't just an act to please management and guests alike it seemed genuine. Everyone from the hotel manager himself Mr Paul Collymore to the reception staff to the maids and bellman couldn't do enough to help make our stay relaxing, fun and comfortable.
I must in particular shout out the stars of our stay who included Remel at reception ( who always has a smile and the patience of a saint), Michael at the water sports / beach station is such a nice man and encouraged us to find the sea turtles, Adrian the head chef who when we said we hadn't felt we'd tried true Bajan flavourful food during our holiday worked late to prepare us a wonderful midnight feast true to Bajan flavour, Luke the restaurant manager who took our comments on food on board and introduced menu changes and more Bajan flavours by the next day! Alison the room property supervisor who couldn't do enough for us and was lovely to just chat too, Melinda the cheeriest concierge you'll ever meet, and the hotel manager Paul who couldn't of made us feel most appreciated as guests.

The rooms:
Stunning, spacious and spotless!
The simple hotel rooms are lovely and fairly spacious but If you can opt for the one bedroom ocean front suite, it is huge and could easily fit a small family. The kitchen was so well equipt we cooked breakfast everyday in room. Unlike most places the kitchen ware was so clean you could use it without having to pre clean it yourself as everything looked brand new. Room also has washer , dryer , cooker, coffee maker, kettle and dishwasher complete with free tablets, other great things were the huge balcony & stylish furniture, the huge rain shower for two and two tv's and iPod Dock.

The little touches :
Complimentary ice Lolly by the pool, Ice cold face towels on the beach and full body spritz cool down all help make this hotel feel more like a 5star. (Although even more of these touches throughout the day would of been even better).
Also free non motor water sports.

Food:
Now in the beginning my partner and I felt the cocktails were amazing but over priced but this is being looked at by management so I am certain with all the changes made already during our stay this will be cheaper upon our return to oceans two, the fridges in the suites produce free filtered water and ice so that's great and we even got a welcome package of bacon, egg, bread and milk complimentary for our arrival which was great they just needed to add some butter sticks To go with that and your good for your first morning without a jet lagged supermarket trip also tea, coffee and sugar is also topped up daily. Fantastic!!!

car hire:
Ask Remel at reception to contact Chris King for car hire he was much cheaper than the others and was very helpful and it's a small family business. Plus he rents Rihanna her cars when she is on the island, in fact ours was the one Rihanna and Oprah drove around the Island. Also Chris King gave us buy 2 days and get one free. So ask about that.

Kids:
As a 29 year old couple travelling without children this hotel was perfect as there wasn't more than 5 children at the hotel and the hotel keep the roof deck pool child free which we liked for a romantic holiday it was nice to have an adult only zone. There isn't entertainment or holiday clubs ect so if you do have children try there sister hotels which are more family orientated.

Tips:

Take Bajan money over American money, everything is priced in Bajan currency.

Get a cab too and from the airport to the hotel, it's $31 barbados dollars to the hotel and $40 back to the airport also you get extra time at the hotel as we left 2 hours before our flight but people on coaches left 3.5 hours before and it's only a ten minute transfer time.

Try Champers / Cin Cin or The Cliff restaurants for an element romantic fine dining experience. The hotel will book it for you.

Go to Oistens on a Friday night and don't leave early! You'll miss the carnival atmosphere and dancing.

Defiantly hire a car and see the island, we drove the whole island in 5 hours stopping at various spots and beaches, it's amazing and if you get lost the locals will stop and help you they are literally the friendliest people you'll ever meet abroad!

Most importantly try the Cool Runnings catamaran morning slot. Amazing day, fun, great food, loads of free booze, and you get to swim with the sea turtles. Good for all ages.

Enjoy Barbados and visit the oceans two! We'll defo be back!
