“Great location, fantastic beach!”
Reviewed April 30, 2010

This is a great place to stay for a short trip to the Hamptons area. It's very secluded and has it's own private beach area. During the summer the beaches in this area are packed-but not here. The beach is fantastic if you love big waves. This hotel is not cheap but none of them in the vicinity are during the summer months. The Ocean Colony provides kitchen amenities so you can go out to an area resturant (the choices are very extensive and excellent) for one meal and prepare something in your room for the others to make up for the cost. They've got a nice pool and tennis courts, beautiful grounds and a great location central to everything that you go to Amagansett for. We've stayed here more than once and the staff has been great every time.

I stayed here in summer 2008 and 2009.

The best thing about Ocean Colony is location. It is between the Hamptons and Montauk and is right on the beach. It is small enough and distant enough from other properties that you can find a lot of personal space on the beach even in peak season. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided. It also has a pool. The structures are wood with pretty landscaping, and pebbled roads and parking. Spaces right in front of your room can fill up in peak season but there was always one available. Grocery stores, towns and shops are all nearby but you will need a car. There is no shopping, dining, etc, on the site-- just rooms, beach and serenity.

The worst thing about Ocean Colony *CAN* be the rooms. People own these rooms. Depending on owner, rooms in the same price levels can be run down and awful or well maintained and lovely. I was here with extended family both years and had a chance to see at least 10 rooms. Some are well cared for some are (obviously) not. One family booked a 1BR costing $400+ per night that was so awful they refused it. Nothing at that price should be awful. The managers at Ocean Colony did try their best to accommodate family members who were unhappy.

I rented an overpriced (but quiet) studio that I liked in 2008. By the following year the wall paper was peeling off, the closet door was in the closet (broken), the dishwasher was leaking all over the floor and the mattress was so visibly thin, worn and sunken that I got a backache after 2 nights that stayed for 2 weeks. Housekeeping continued to run the leaking dishwasher with 3 towels shoved in front. It still made a puddle beyond the towels. I reported the closet, dishwasher and mattress. Maybe no one else had?

The young folks helping with beach chairs and umbrellas are friendly. My room was very clean on check in but housekeeping during my stay left a little to be desired. Check in can be time consuming and frustrating in peak weeks as the office is tiny and staff is sparse. Repairs may not happen until you leave.

Ideally, you should spend a night there off-peak and look at (pick) a room before booking a long stay. Some rooms you won't mind paying for (e.g. 2BR/2Bath Loft Rooms and some updated units in Ocean Edge.) Others may leave you feeling duped.

We enjoyed Ocean Colony but their prices have gone out of our reach. We are looking elsewhere for 2010.

The only negative are the interior of the rooms and bathrooms......they are outdated, dusty, unnattractive with absolutely no style....equivalent to a 'Motel 6' I suppose in the 1970's.....these type of rooms are perfect for families with large SUV's or those who find campers appealing.......I don't understand the point....this is the 21st century.....it is so easy to fix this and then have cohesion with the setting......this type of beach front hotel could be incredible and has so much potential, but not with these rooms..... unless of course the rooms were priced at $79 a night, which is what they probably would have been priced at 35 years ago when the rooms were designed.......

First my group and family had a room in osprey, it was, typical whatever. Small, and crappy view; but then the refridgerator was broken so they moved us to another room, which was amazing. It had a loft but besides that, it contained much nicer furniture, and a private access to the beach, a much better bathroom-the previous room had a shower that had to be atleast 10 or 20 years older. This bathroom was much nicer end of story. The Clubhouse was alright-had a ping pong table and a bathroom. The beach was amazing and convienent. Its allowed that you can make a fire and their was no limit of what time you would have to get off the beach =] . Needless to say that it was beautiful, the room had enough plates and cups that were like new, no chips or cracks, and our vacation was problem-free.

Just returned from a one night stay @ Ocean Colony. Stayed in a one bedroom, oceanview w/loft apartment. This was a nice accomodation with full kitchen and balcony overlooking the ocean. We paid $125 for the night since it's in April...I do notice that this same room is $600 per night in prime season which is overpriced in my opinion. I have to say the location of the resort is very nice with a private walkway to the beach with tennis courts and in season pool. Overall we had a nice stay and would probably return in the off season.

Close to everything great about the Hamptons, towns, beach, et al.

These rooms are actually apartments a mere 50 feet from the Ocean and with a pool. We were in an apartment with a loft and two bathrooms. It was well appointed the owner made us at home with flat panel tvs, a furnished balcony with a view of the ocean, immaculate conditions and a fully appointed kitchen. Wireless internet too!

I would have paid more. THANK YOU!

This place is quite a find. We had a great room with a bedroom and loft for the kids to stay. The view was worth $1,000,000. We were steps to the secluded beach and heated pool. We were very impressed by the service.
