I love this hotel! It is extremely well run with a highly trained and friendly staff. The rooms are pristine and well appointed - ours had a superb seaview- and the beds had tailored Skopos covers with new blankets and cotton sheets (no hot sweaty duvet!) The public rooms are elegant with a modern twist - I loved the artwork... More

We'll done Ocean Hotel you got it right. Good food, attentive staff, Clean rooms and pristine bedding. Our four days with you recently was not enough. Special thanks to Vanessa in the dining room. When visiting the island again you will certainly be on the top of our list.

I would like to recommend the Ocean Hotel for 2 key reasons: 1: Friendly helpful staff, comfortable rooms, good value quality food, great views, nice gardens, good location, a feel of a family house rather than a chain hotel and a general warm atmosphere throughout the hotel. 2: My visit was under extremely difficult circumstances. My mother and father were... More
