“Ocean Club West - quiet and basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2009

We visited Turks and Caicos from May 16 - 20, 2009.
Resort room: The Ocean Club West resort is a condominium resort, like most on Turks and Caicos. We stayed in a island view studio room which came with a kitchenette (full size refrigerator with ice maker, sink, pots/pans, blender, stove top burners and microwave). Food on the island is very expensive (more so than other islands we have visited) so we ate in for breakfast and most days for lunch. The unit came with plates, glasses, serving utensils, paper towels, soap, etc... so you didn't need to buy anything. It also has a washer/dryer with small boxes of detergent provided.The unit had a very comfortable king size bed along with a seating area, TV and VCR and a screened in balcony with table and chairs, which was delightful.
Resort service: The front desk was efficient but not overly friendly. The grounds people were very polite. There is a pool bar that makes excellent strawberry daiquiris with adequate service. Beach towels are provided along with chairs and umbrellas on the beach. These were plentiful during our stay. We did get a call the day before our departure to set up taxi service to the airport at a reduced rate and it is charged to the room. There is a "spa" location at the resort but I never saw it open. The workout room had free weights and several machines, all in good condition. There are also tennis courts with equipment you can use as well as bikes for use. They do have a VCR/DVD collection of movies as well as novels you can borrow from the office.
Grounds: Beautiful gardens, lots of small geckos but not so many that they are a nuisance, beach was clean, soft sand, crystal clear water.
Island: Taxis are a bit expensive but there are plenty. The location of the Ocean Club West is perfect for walking to a number of shops and restaurants. The new grocery store is an easy walk, very clean, had a decent variety of items.
Restaurants: Hemingway's is located at The Sands resort - excellent meal, ate on the "deck" overlooking the beach and ocean, beautiful spot to watch the sunset. Service was good, steak was delicious, prices were comparable and maybe even a few dollars cheaper than some of the recommended spots. Taxi was $13 each way from Ocean Club (could walk with comfortable shoes).
The Bamboo Spot - located across the street from Ocean Club West. We just had pizza (okay) and the house salad, which was great. It came with a tasty ginger dressing and was garnished with pineapple and mangoes.
Pizza Pizza- within walking distance of Ocean Club. Pizza was good (not great) and pasta portions were huge. Great place for a simple, budget conscience meal that you can bring leftovers back for lunch the next day. The ice cream shop located below Pizza Pizza has good ice cream (coffee / cookie is flavorful).
Opus- located at Ocean Club so you can take the resort shuttle for free. Excellent atmosphere with inside, covered or outside seating. Romantic, quiet, service as attentive, food very good. We had a drink at the bar afterward and the bartender was the friendliest of all workers we met on our stay.
The poolside grille at The Grace Bay Club - located next door to the Ocean Club West. Interesting menu options but more expensive for lunch than other places. The service and seating were excellent. They do charge $7 for bottled water (only option) and a 10% service charge on top of the 10% service tax that is added to all food bills on the island. I am not sure our chicken tenders, burger and water lunch was worth $50.

Overall, it was a relaxing, do nothing vacation, which is what we wanted. The resort met our basic needs and I would recommend for families or those not looking to be pampered.

Wow! Almost a year later and I'm still gobsmacked. I've seen quite a bit of the Caribbean, but nothing comes even close! It's not the most exciting vacation I've ever had (great for divers and snorkelers), but where else do you find puddles on the street after a rainshower, and they're turquoise?! Ocean Club West ... well we saw better, but not in our price range. It was perfect for us and the beach was to die for ... not sure why anyone would use a pool when the beach is soooo superb! The hotel suite (2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, kitchen and living room + sunporch, fully equipped including washer/dryer with cleaning and towel service) was exactly what we wanted, steps from the beach with a view of the water from our living room. I hope to go back one day soon!

My husband and I booked a stay at OCW at the last minute after changing our travel plans from Mexico to Turks and Caicos. We were not sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. I knew the beaches and water would be amazing, but we really liked our suite as well. We had only reserved a junior suite, but were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. It was a very large suite with 2 bedrooms, one upstairs and 2 1/2 bathrooms, a kitchen, living area, and 2 awesome balconies. We walked in the room and my mouth just fell open at how nice the room was. I was expecting a smaller junior suite probably with no ocean view, but got a much larger room with a spectacular ocean view. The hotel grounds were also very well taken care of and the beach was very nice as well. We didn't spend time at the pool as we prefer the beach, but it also looked very nice. There is only one restaraunt at OCW, but there are plenty of dining choices within a short distance from the hotel. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would return to Ocean Club West.

Highly recommend taking the Ocean Outback adventure trip with Captain Bill. It was the best thing we did while on vacation. He leaves from Sapodilla bay and takes you snorkeling, exploring a pirate cave and to a secluded beach. Lunch, and plenty of beer, soda, or rum punch was also available. Plus Captain Bill is full of personality and makes the trip so much fun.

This trip we booked a two bedroom suite and were so happy with it! The kids had their own space up stairs with two twin beds and there own full bath. Downstairs there was the main living space, 2 patio/baloncy (one off of master suite), and 1 1/2 baths, laundry. nearly 1600 sq! Plenty of room to hang out in (I've added photos of the suite.) For the life of me i cant remember our # but my master bedroom balcony looked directly at Villa Del Mar. I love OCW! No, it's not Four Seasons, or Ritz. I compare it to a Marriott level hotel except you get Condo style suites that make you feel like home. You can walk to the new grocery store from OCW (very nice walk.) And you can walk to some decent restaurants, Bella Luna is one of our favorites. We always rent a car and again went to our favorite spots, Long Bay Beach and Taylor Bay.
This time we took a beach cruise w/Silver Seas. Very fun! Stopped to snorkel and then visited an island to look for sand dollars. Amazing trip. Amazing place! I want to live there!!!!!

Danger at Ocean West club -Beware of a vague telephone message to call your airline.
This is a scam to increase the revenue of the telecom company.
If you receive a message to call your airline instead e-mail your travel agent to check up on your flights. You may also subscribe to automated departure notification.

My boyfriend and I just returned from our first stay at OCW, and we were very happy with our experience. The staff was great, from the front office to the clearning staff to the restaurant waits staff. The shuttle between the OCW and its sister property, OC "East", was very helfpul, and the Opus Wine & Grill at OC East is fantastic! Moreover, Grace Gourmet (a grocery store just a notch below Whole Foods) opened March 28 and is only two short blocks from the OCW. OCW is a nice blend between a "condo" style property and a more full-service hotel. We definitely plan to return!
