I spent three nights at the Ocean Pacific with my Aunt, and overall we were very impressed!
We had a two-bedroom apartment on the 14th floor, and the view of the ocean was really beautiful. It was fun to sit on the balcony and watch the tiny surfers in the water far below.
This hotel is in a really good location, you can walk to the beach, to the restaurants, and to all the shops as well. For the price, the location and views are an absolute steal! We didn't meet the staff very often but they were friendly when we did, and though I didn't use the pool it looked nice.
I do have to make a couple of points about my bedroom. I had the lesser of the two bedrooms, and experienced a few problems. Firstly, I am not a tall person by any means (about 160cm) but my feet hung off the end of the single bed. Just about tolerable for me, but would definitely annoy a taller person.
The biggest issue, however, was discovered on the first night when I went to bed early and my aunt and her friend sat on the balcony. They didn't talk loudly, but my bedroom "door" was made up of moving slats of wood - completely lacking in soundproof - and I could hear every single word being said on the other side of the apartment as if they were in my room. I can imagine if this was used as a kids' room (as clearly intended), they would be kept awake by their parents talking or watching TV, even at a reasonable volume.
There was also only one tiny shampoo supplied for two girls in the bathroom, which had two doors meaning we had to come up with an impromptu system of knocks to let each other know it was occupied. And the towel rail was the other side of the bathroom from the shower. Tiny design flaws there.
But everything else about the apartment was so nice (comfortable lounge, great kitchen, location, and I have to mention that VIEW again!) that none of the above would put me off returning. I just hope the management will consider this feedback for the future, and I would like to know more about the bedroom options next time (though we did book last minute at a great price, so there were probably not many options to choose from!)
