One Ocean Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Atlantic Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Stayed at this beachfront resort for only one night, sadly. From the moment I stepped out of the car and they handed me my room keys! to the front desk agent rolling my ack outside for me on departure (yes, she didn't just turn it over to me), the personalized service at this "new" resort is unbelievable. I you haven't been to Atlantic Beach for awhile, this is the location of an older motel that was shut down and rebuilt a few years ago. Only 7 stories so small, yet it has everything. Rooms are very elegant and floor to ceiling windows for a great ocean view from every room. I LOVE the bathroom, want to do that in my home. The huge shower was well thought out, the handle to turn it on is opposite the shower head so you don't get wet trying to adjust it. Wonderful towels, all the extras, and really comfortable bed. And the minibar is stocked with whatever you like...for free!! Their Docent service is special, she came to help but didn't stay long enough to need it - I will when I return for a longer stay. The Spa looked lovely, it was a windy day so they were sold out (book a treatment before you arrive!) so went to the beach and the pool instead. Huge lounge chairs with thick pads, pool service was friendly and fun. Plus you can walk out the front and wander around the charming village of Atlantic Beach with shops and restaurants galore. Although they have the BEST restaurant around. Make sure you put this hotel on your bucket list, it's so worth it.

The One Ocean Resort hotel is only steps from the Ocean It's spotless clean and very near to the Jacksonville pier in the heart of Atlantic Beach,and also very close to the conservatory and The Mayo Clinic.
Good service from the valet to bellman's check in service personal in the beautiful restaurant & also the poolside all had excellent service.
Free bottle water is provided Free soft drinks and snacks in the room the water is extra nice It's very hot and humid in Florida the water is needed!
The Ocean view from the room was great and added touch is a sound wave system on the side table next to you bed just in case you want to hear the ocean one on one!
It will be better if the bathrooms were larger,the door almost misses the toilet by inches,It's not a comfortable feeling.but the view and the 2 shower heads in the tub are extra nice.
the beds are comfortable the pillows were good and the room was again very clean.
there is a $25 dollar resort fee service charge and there is also a $20 parking valet charge.I was surprise of the second charge because it was not explain correctly when booking or check in.And this is not the Waldorf Astoria,But they do try with the excellent service so they did not have a complain from me.
Across the street from the Hotel there is a row of restaurants and Bars pack with the locals we Enjoy Joseph's Pizza they offer happy hour and good pizza & they also have good gelato the only thing that was bad was that we also order the Greek salad and it would had been better with out the balsamic dressing that they serve this with istead of a Greek dressing.
almost next door a beach rental place just in case you missed anything.there's also a 7 eleven a block away and a Walgreen's a block after that.
The other restaurants and bars across the street are Ragtime tavern.M Shack,Sun Dog steak and seafood and many others.
Do know that there is barely no parking by the hotel so there is no self parking allow on the parking lot and the few parking places outside of this are very few.
The food order from room service was terrible.order some chix soup $8 this was to settle and upset stomach but it tastes so bad it was uneatable and the strawberry shortcake was very dry.
Even that the food order was horrible the service was not.
Overall it was a nice stay,great hotel good service.Will recommend to family and friends it's a gem in a great spot location.

Room Tip: Higher floor have better views, balcony rooms have ocean front views,Non balcony rooms may have only...

Thank you, Beckys111, for taking the time to share your One Ocean experience with us. The valet fee is showcased within the pre-arrival communications and we will review the placement of this message to ensure it is clear. We are surprised to hear that the food provided from room service did not meet your expectations. We pride ourselves on the quality and presentation of all dining services at the resort, and assure you that we will look into this further. Thanks to a tremendous renovation from the previous hotel 5 years ago, One Ocean Resort & Spa was created. Because of some limitations with the original structure, our bathrooms had to remain the size of the previous hotel. We were able to compensate with luxurious features such as our shower heads and large, spacious guest rooms.

This hotel exceeded any expectation I may have had. When we arrived they valeted our car and unpacked everything quickly. Check in was super easy and the staff here is beyond amazing. Every single staff member we encountered was very friendly and helpful. Our docen was particularly good, we needed to refill some drinks and he also got us our ice and was able to give us some I helpful information about the area. The only problem we had was when we went to pick up our car the next morning from valet, it was extremely windy and cold and they could not find out keys, two people came out after us and had their cars and left before us. Finally they were able to find it and the man who went to get the car was driving it like it was a toy!! He rolled all the windows down and whipped around the turn, which is just unacceptable.
The spa here is gorgeous and the view is even better, we have gone to Jacksonville several times and stayed in all different parts because any one who has traveled to Jacksonville knows that it is huge! This was by far the best, especially the location because it is within walking distance to many restaurants, bars and clubs.

We've stayed at this hotel at LEAST 12 times over the last 4 years, and it's consistently high-quality and clean. The service is great, and the spa is wonderful (great view and kind staff). The food at their restaurant onsite (as well as room service), is fresh, local, and sometimes organic. The pool area at this hotel could use a tiny bit of refreshing; however, we haven't been during the summer season in a while, so it could be we were there during the off season. Their outdoor seating area is very nice, and you have great ocean views from almost every room in the hotel. Beach service is seasonal, so know that going in. The area is great with little shops and restaurants in the area. Best walk-to place for a bagel at a great price is Lillie's Coffee Bar, about a block away. Great coffees and teas, and outdoor seating if you have a pet. A GREAT hotel. (Better than the Sawgrass Marriott, IMO.)

This was one of the best, most relaxing and stress-free hotel stays I've had in a while. I traveled with my mom and my 1-year-old baby. Upon arrival we received a very vip welcome: a concierge came to our room to make sure everything was fine, talked about the property. I requested a baby crib and it was delievered within 5 minutes. Valet parking service was very efficient during the whole stay as well.

The beds are to die for! I haven't slept so well in a while... The in-room snack bar is complimentary and is refilled daily. Housekeeping service is top-knotch, nightly turn-down service was consistent.

The pool area and beach access are well-maintained and are simply beautiful. The staff is attentive and accommodating.

If you're travelling on business and need to use a computer-they can bring a laptop to your room. Wi-fi is complimentary and the signal strength/bandwith were great-we were able to play cartoons for the baby. I even used wi-fi on the beach with minor problems.

I only used the restaurant for breakfast because there're so many cute little restaurants in that area (that are more family-friendly). Food was great!

It was the first time I traveled with my baby and I expected not to get any rest-in fact I did-thank you for that!

What an amazing place to stay! Pure relaxation and impeccable service. The hotel is truly wonderful in every way and felt like royalty during my whole stay. Rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. The sound of the ocean and the view in our room is priceless. Great shops and restaurants right outside the front door of this fabulous hotel. You don't want to miss the experience of the Hotel's restaurant, Azurea. Every bite was an experience within itself. Lastly, please do not miss the Spa. First class everything! Will definitely be back.

This Hotel and every staff member was completely WONDERFUL!
