Ocean 15 was a very affordable place to stay (we were there for 5 days). We stayed in the queen size bed room with no kitchenette. We were only a 5-10 minute walk to St. Lawrence Gap (clubs, restaurants, etc) and the beach was only a 5 minute walk away. The rooms are very clean (tile) and they were also... More

Overall we were very happy with our 8 day stay Oceans 15. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The pool and swim up bar were great bonuses! This place is hopping multiple days during the week. There is always a soccer game or some sort of sport on. It seems to be a hangout for both locals and... More

I would rate this as more of a 3.5 star place, but that's not an option here. The hotel is fine, our room (a studio) was very small, but about what we expected. You're a block or two from the beach and a 10 minute walk from the main part of the Gap. The restaurant in the hotel was OK.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ocean15 is a family owned property offering traditional Barbadian warmth and hospitality. Recently refurbished, the hotel offers sixteen (16) impeccably furnished, luxury lifestyle rooms reflecting fine Barbadian decor, simple elegance and comfort. It is an excellently appointed facility designed to embrace families and business travelers, the adventurist or the individual looking for solitude. We are less than 5 minutes walking distance from the white sand and turquoise waters of Dover Beach and are located in the center of the renowned St Lawrence Gap, famous for its lively night life, wide variety of restaurants and bars and duty-free shopping. Within the Barbadian context, where luxury high end hotels are typically located on the West Coast of the island, the hotel has been described as "a West Coast experience on the South Coast." As such, we live up to our maxim "De Luxe for Less!" ... more   less
