“Comfortable sun loungers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Stayed here before our cruise for 3 nights. Lovely modern hotel, great waterfall shower. Didn't eat here so can't comment I preferred to eat with the locals in the shacks further up from the hotel. The pool area is nice and it was appreciated when the staff spray you with a cooling spray, nice touch. The waves are rough I watched surfers one evening I prefer the west coast where it is calmer. One comment is that is was our honeymoon and no fuss what so ever was made I think this stood out more as on our return from the cruise we stayed at Mango Bay in Holetown for 3 nights and they filled our room with rose petals and give us bottle of bubbly.

My wife and I celebrated our silver wedding here and had a wonderful two weeks. We stayed in a one bedroom ocean front suite room 506 and everything was perfect. We have visited many countries but this must be the best hotel ever. Excellent service from Roxanne who looked after our room. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. A special mention to all the staff on reception but especially to Malinda who was brilliant and we cannot thank her enough for all she did for us. Shantelle was so much fun whilst serving us in the restaurant and on the beach. The staff here really do deserve praise because they make the holiday perfect. I just hope that the hotel owners realise what excellent staff they have. A short walk from the hotel takes you down "The Gap" with it's many bars and restaurants where you meet the friendly locals. It is one of the most safe places to walk out at night. This wasn't our first trip to Barbados, but it was definitely the best.If you want perfection this is one place to visit

Room Tip: Try to get an Ocean front suite on the 5th floor or above. Book hotel for bed and breakfast as there...

This is a bit late, but I wanted to write a review of my stay at the Ocean Two in Barbados, back in May of 2013.

It was the most adorable little boutique hotel!
I stayed in a One Bedroom Oceanfront Suite and WOW! I was lucky enough to be right in the middle of the building with a FANTASTIC view of the ocean!
The room was very clean and was HUGE! The bathroom was amazing!! Largest shower I have ever been in!

I was with a group of friends, so we were always having a good time in the pool, as some of them got some amazing swim out suites!
The food was delicious, but there was only one restaurant.

However, the hotel was in a GREAT location within walking distance to some nightlife, which worked out very well for all of us.

I would go back in a heartbeat! :)

My partner and I stayed here for a week in May. The hotel itself is perfect, fabulous rooms, great beach and a short walk to the Gap. We had a bit of a bad start however, as the hotel airport pickup didn't arrive, so we had to speak to security at the airport who pointed us in the direction of a guy who works for them usually and eventually he got in touch with them, and they sent a taxi for which they paid. We were not too upset by it, determined to stay positive on our holidays, but we were waiting over half an hour and when we arrived at the hotel they didn't even mention it or apologise. On check out, they even tried to charge the full amount for it before I complained and then we had the apology. I asked to cancel the return leg, which we had booked before arriving, as we discovered that their prices were double the local taxis. Prices in the hotel were in general very high, with happy hour drinks just making it more reasonable. As a young couple we expected to be harassed by the guys selling drugs but honestly I never heard them say anything about it, all they said to us was "hey, how's it going?" And we just greeted them back and never had any problems.
The managers party on Wednesday night is a lovely idea and we met some lovely couples there. We also took the oistins shuttle which we really enjoyed, but it leaves just as the party is really getting started. I'd recommend making your own way there and back.
Some staff, Xina in particular, were really lovely and helpful when organising our trips, but we found the bar staff a bit cold and not willing to have a conversation. The loungers were so comfy and I never got tired of the ocean view. Overall it was a great experience.

This hotel was beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Shantel was the beach bartender and she was the absolute best, she told us how to get around town and where to go. The hotel is on the end of the strip, there are a host of restaurants and bars on the strip and there is a small supermarket across the street where we bought food to cook for breakfast. If u walk to the end of the road u can get a bus to Oistins quite easily. We ate there almost every night. It was a great hitel and we plan to come back soon

Oceans2 is simply fantastic,

We stayed for 10days in 502 a one bed Sea View Suite and the views were amazing, the suite itself was fully equipt which was excellent as we traveled with our 8month old baby boy.

Living area spacious, Kitchen had everything incl a washer and dryer, bathroom huge with best shower ever but did have trouble trying to wash our baby as no bath at all, the bedroom again very nice with a fanastic huge bed and plenty of storgae. the entire Suite and finished to a high standard throughout and better than many 5 star hotels we have stayed in.

The reception lobby/bar area is well designed and finished to a very high standard leading straight through to the pool and then eventually the beach. The pool bar is great especially at 12.30 and 4.30 for happy hour/s! The loungers are the best I ve ever and will ever experience.the beach is powder white and waters pretty rough however the right side of the beach is calmer and swimming was possible.

The location is superb right at the end of the strip and whilst it took us a day or two to get used to how genuinely friendly the locals in the street walking to the gap were, before long a 5 minute conversation with locals we walked past everyday was 'normal'. walking along you pass many great quirky places from each one of them great in their own right but a few to mention for me was PureOcean restaurant, Harlequin restaurant, Sharkeys bar and restaurant(pints of Banks), Cafe sol the list could go on. notable places to eat outwith beyond the gap are Tapas and Champers very very excellent restaurants in spectacular settings.

And now onto the crowning glory for what raises this holiday and hotel above any i have ever experienced, THE STAFF.

From the minute we arrived we noticed the staff were special and as the days went on they made the holiday , Initially sorting us out with Mr Best for Airport transfers and JAhson for our regular taxi and Dee our private taxi tour of the island. On a daily basis being so genuinely lovely and particularly great with our baby it was almost like we had known them forever. Zina Joanna Romell and Shaquilla? on the front desk where so amazing, as was Ornan ,Andre, Oneil Shantelle and Stefon. We were even asked by Mr Collymore to a hospitality Motorsport day in the hotels Box at the Intl race track which was a first for me on my travels and a truly remarkable day which we where very very well looked after so thank you again. I have missed out many names but every staff member was truly superb and you should be very proud to have such a team and compliments to you for that. They were all particularly excellent with our baby especially Zina Shantelle and JOanna and as we were lucky enough to fly BA First on this trip I would suggest some of the BA first cabin staff could benefit from spending a couple of nights in this hotel to understand what quality service is!!!

We hope to return one day when our baby is grown up a little as the place gave us many fantastic memories and we met some wonderful people.

Keep up the good work in making lifetime memories for those lucky enough to stay here.

Jordan, Nadine and Baby Austin;-)
