My wife and myself have just returned from a weeks stay at the Ocean View. We were initially concerned after reading previous reviews about nighttime noise levels from building work. In fact we packed earplugs. The reality however was that there were absolutely no disturbances at night at all and our stay there was nothing short of superb.
We tried all of the restaurants including the sister restaurant the thyme. The quality and choice in each was to a very high standard. Room service was great and always had anything we used topped up daily. The Girders bar had a nice atmosphere and had a band playing live some nights. Even on a Tuesday ladies can drink completely free which helped our bar bill significantly. The hotel provides free of charge a beach kit (towels, large mat and parasol) so for most of the time we used the public beach which we fond clean and always plenty of room. The best part that there is a Starbucks next to the hotel so you could walk there from the beach and bring it back to the beach with you.
We booked some trips and some travel with Gulf adventures but would not use them again as they were 1 hour late for a safari trip and didn't turn up for our return airport transfer (although they did offer to pay for the taxi which we had to get)
We are looking at returning to the same hotel next year.
