Well 10/10 accommodation, food 10/10, atmosphere nothing, manager of ocean 15 a wonderful lady she will go far always a smile, bar staff nothing I am sorry but that is how it was please focus and ask yourselves why most nights empty , I would recommend ocean 15 to anyone a massive improvement from ocean 11 but if you could re create the personalities they had behind the bar you will have the best place in the gap .

Room Tip: All excellent except room 5 studio no view due to canopy too high

10/10!!!! Thanks so much for your review!
As a young hotel (almost two years under the new ownership), we have made major strides in our service. We continue to work on improving that service as we seek to achieve a 10/10 rating in all areas! Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again at Ocean 15.

Been going to Barbados since 1996 and have stayed in many places.Stayed here when it was Oceans 12 and through ownership change,was very worn out. Stopped by January 2011 after the renovation was done and WOW what a difference and the new owners are very nice.
The wife and I are returning for the month of February(2012) , can't wait , minus 31 here in Canada now.

I spent four(4) nights, at Ocean 15 Hotel. It is a small but well equipped, well located hotel. It is amidst the larger hotels like Ocean 2, opposite Turtle beach and Almond beach yet you'll see guest from nearby hotels visiting the restaurant/bar.
The rooms are big and clean with private balconies, there is a small pool with a swim up bar, however if you want peace and quiet do not stay in a room on the first floor, facing the road and/or close to the entertainment area, as I did. The beach is just 2 minutes from the hotel.
The manager, receptionists and other staff are quite friendly and accommodating. I needed a special arrangement because my husband had exams at Cave Hill so could not stay over every night, I thought this would have been a problem but it was not. The cleaners are timely, too timely if you want to sleep late. i would recommend the fish and salad. I'll be back.

Room Tip: If you do not want to be in the limelight, don't choose a ground floor room, but if you want to...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ocean 15 from Nov 30th - Dec 5th, based on a recommendation from one of my friends and I must say I was not disappointed at all. When we got into our room which was room 1 the place was so amazingly clean I thought we could have eaten of the floor, just to give some indication as to how clean it was. They also have daily room service which will come and neaten the room, change the towels and wash the dishes.

I must admit that the room was not very big but its just the right amount of cozy. However, room 1 is situated right by the bar area which can get somewhat noisy as they have jazz Thursday nights and karaoke on Friday and Sunday nights which usually go up until midnight and on some occasions may run a little later, but the front office will call to see if its bothering you or if it is ok for it to continue, which I found was very nice of them. So just for future reference if you like it quiet in the night ask for a room far from the bar area.

Next there is the food which was really good but I think my favorite part of the meal was the wonderful service you got from the bar staff. They were just so polite and eager to help and it just made the meal that much better. I also enjoyed the coffee bar which have a really nice caramel drink which does not have coffee in it.

Finally I would like to say that there are so many things good I could say about Ocean 15 like its great location, the nice pool that allows you to access the bar for drinks or the fact that all rooms have wireless internet access (and from what I've heard internet access in your room from other hotels is not standard so that was really good) but I wanted to end on what I saw to be a major positive factor pertaining to Ocean 15 and that is the three lovely ladies I met in the reception office. They were Terry, Cheryl and Kelly all very polite, pleasant and helpful individuals and I just loved the hospitality I got the entire period I was there. Even the security guards were amazing.

So i would DEFINITELY stay at Ocean 15 another time. It was nice!!!!

My girl friend and I spent my bday weekend at Ocean 15 - Nov 12th - Nov 14th. The room was spiffy, the service was fabulous and the food was OOOh so great ( Damn that Chocolate cake!)
Its located at the end of the Gap but within 10 minutes walk of all the action...We couldn't have wanted anything better. 5mins to the beaches and hop and skip from the room into a sweet pool with swim up bar. A big Trini 'hail up" to Shane and Richard of Ocean who made the weekend a 10/10. See you all in 2012 'fuh Shure!!' OB

Room Tip: Room 8 was nicely tucked away for that good night rest after all the partying!!!

It was a great weekend stay. Close enough to all the action but yet far away enough for peace and quiet. The food was superb. Make sure and try that chocolate cake too. Lovely beaches in walking distance along with mini mart to get all your grocery needs to cook something up at the apartment. Friendly staff. Special thanks to Richard!
