We spent 4 nights at BOcean in mid-January. I strongly recommend the hotel. The lobby is chic and modern. The pool area and restaurant (B'stro) are very nice. All of the staff was attentive, friendly and helpful, none more so than Sonya at the desk who had everything ready for us and early checkout. Unfortunately, I do not remember his name, but the young dark haired waiter at B'stro was terrific as well. The rooms are very nice -- clean and modern. They are not huge, however. Our room had two double beds - a bit smaller than most hotel rooms these days which generally have queen sized beds. The beds were very comfortable, however. We were on the 11th floor (upgraded by staff) and the views of the ocean were spectacular. The area right behind the hotel appeared to be from Fort Lauderdale's Spring Break past, but it was very safe and the location in general lwas quite convenient.
