“An Amzing Island and the Best Hotel service and view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

WOW! What can I say about this hotel that hasnt already been positivley written! No idea what the Cathy J review was talking about apart from we must have been in two different hotels! This was perfect from the moment we arrived in a taxi, the luggage was taken from us, we checked in with a cocktail and the best first impression of a hotel I have ever recieved! Then we were shown to our apartment! WOW! huge! massive bedroom and bed, huge bathroom that could easily accommodate a family of 4 at one time and includes a marble bench incase you are getting a litlle board of standing! The living room / kitchen all high spec and you can see the money that has been put into making this a truely 5star hotel! We had an ocean view room came equipped with two wicker loungers and a wicker table of 4 on the balcony. The pool area was perfect, the sun loungers! WOW! they were like a single bed with a matress equivalent! The beach was certainly not rocky at all perfect soft sand and ok then some reef but this did no way stop you walking on all sand for about 10mins into the ocean without stepping on a rock! The Staff WOW the Staff, I have never met such perfect staff on a trip before let alone their names! The Pool guys are fabulous! Can I add I have never been "misted" before with Eucalyptus spray to keep cool! Followed by cold towels and unlimited glasses of water being delivery and if that wasnt luxury enough they give you a flag to stick in the ground for any other drink / food /additional towel you could want. SO a Big thanks to our perfect "mister" Rodderik - hope you get Employee of the month soon you are a gem and such a lovely guy! Patick, Oneil, Ernie Thanks guys we loved our stay! The recpection staff all lovely even giving us hugs when we left and a special thanks to Pamela our house keeper for the 2 weeks we stayed at the hotel. I dont think I have every hugged hotel staff before but I did sshed a tear leaving! The impromtu "managers cocktail" evening fantastic touch and so nice to mingle with the rest of the staff. A truely wonderful hotel!
There is a supermarked accross the road from the street and you are not pestered at all what is wrong with a local saying you look pretty, or the guy selling jewelley asking to look a simple no from us every day turned into a running joke! Embrace their life we sure did! There are so many nice resaturants to eat in the gap the ones we likes the best were Harliquins, Bellini's, Cafe Sol (also good for happy hour 10pm-12) Sweet Potatoe, and the Greek restaurant next to Cafe Sol. The bars we went into were Cafe sol till midnight, then Reggea Reggea bar who the owner reminded us of Samuel L Jackson and Hall's Car park bar!! Truely Awesom and I highly recommend Oistins, Jolly Rodger, and Hastings... If you love having fun this is the place for you.. Thank you Ocean 2 your hotel is perfect and I hope it doesnt change any time soon a true Gem of the place, thank you.

Room Tip: We had room 303 which was perfect but a higher floor would give you more a view of the bay.

We stayed at the Ocean Two from 24th October to 4th November 2012. We were celebrating our friend's 40th birthday and couldn't have wished for a better base. The apartment was lovely, very well appointed with all (and more!) comforts of home. The view from our balcony (6th floor) was gorgeous. The sunbeds by the pool were far and away the most comfortable I have ever experienced. The staff were welcoming from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, a number of them making sure to come and say goodbye.
We had a room only stay, which was perfect as it gave us the opportunity to explore and enjoy the many bars and restaurants nearby. We ate in the hotel one evening and a number of lunchtimes, the food and service were excellent. I can honestly say we didn't have a bad meal the whole trip. Oistin's Fish Fry was so good, we went twice! We also found the gem which is Luigi's Italian Restaurant 10 minutes walk away where we had two fantastic meals.
There is also a well stocked supermarket just across the road.
It was our first trip to Barbados and I really hope it will be the first of many. The staff of the hotel and all the local people we met during our time in Barbados were without exception friendly and helpful, they made us feel welcome and seemed to genuinely want to us to enjoy their lovely island. A wonderful holiday that will be incredibly hard to top - ever!

My husband and I stayed at the Ocean Two Resort in October 2012. The service was excellent but cannot make up for some of the other shortcomings. The hotel is very small and has one restaurant (not too good) and no gift shop. We needed sunscreen and had to walk outside the hotel to get bombarded with locals trying to sell us everything to get simple items. The pool is really small and beach is really rocky. Ok for surfing but not good for swimming. The water is beautiful though. The rooms are really small. We had a partial ocean view room, but we could barely move around the bed. They didnt refill anything in the room when they cleaned it. We stayed for three nights. No tissues, no additional shampoo, no lotion. They did recommend the Oistens festival. That was great! Good seafood for cheap!!

Dear Cathy J,

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the excellent service you received. We acknowledge your comments regarding your in room amenities and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Although the Hotel Room which you booked did not meet your expectations, perhaps, a One Bedroom Ocean Front Suite may have been a more appropriate choice for your needs.

We do hope that we have the opportunity to have you stay with us in the future.

Kind Regards,

Paul Collymore

What a fabulous resort. The service was excellent and the resort was beautiful. Definitely a five star resort. The staff at Ocean Two are second to none. We would like to thank Malinda & Kylie at the front desk for the great service and always smiling faces. Also thank you to Patrick, Henderson, Aarie, O'Neil, Roggick, Elsie, Steffon, Darien, Curtis and anyone else that we may have forgotten. Outstanding job by all.

The restaurant food was good but there are many options outside the resort to have a great meal. Harlequin & Opa were excellent. Try the fresh roasted chickens you can buy at the Dover Market. Great for making lunches.

The people in Barbados are the friendliest people in the Caribbean. We can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Choose the ocean front one bedroom room. Well worth the money.

We are here now on our pre Christmas trip, and booked this holiday totally on the reviews on Trip Advisor!
We came to Barbados last for the first time, fell in love with the island and decided to come back again.
After a long flight we were greeted by a welcome cocktail and an ice cold towel, just what we needed. Whilst enjoying this refresher we were checked in and then escorted to our fabulous room. We booked a 1 bedroom ocean view, wow, everything you need and more in this luxury furnished apartment. Air conditioned throughout, lounge, fully equipped kitchen with granite work surfaces, 2 x flat screens, one of the comfiest beds I have slept, a stunning bathroom with a huge walk in shower and a large balcony with two loungers, table and 4 chairs and the ocean view which is priceless!
All the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The do make a point of finding out about you and greeting you on first name terms, and it is evident that they are all very proud of the place they work at.
So far we have had breakfast and lunch here every day, yes the service is a bit slow, but you are on holiday, and in Barbados. Chillax and have another Banks!
The comfy oversized sun beds abound the pool and on the beach are ready for you, with towels on every morning. And there is enough to go around so you don't have to be up at 6am to go and reserve!
Walked down to The Gap for evening meals and an afternoon stroll (beer). The locals will approach you, and try to sell you everything including their mother!,but if you say you are not interested, they will have a chat and won't harass you. That's one of the things we like about the island is that you feel safe amongst the locals.
It will be hard to beat this holiday, and I am sure we will be booking to come back again.
Thanks O2 !

My partner and I stayed one night at O2, after an 11 day crossing of the Atlantic. The room was not ready when we arrived as we had anticipated because we were a bit early. But WOW, what a surprise... we were upgraded to the penthouse suite. Most probably the best penthouse suite we've ever seen! Huge, modern, comfortable, quiet, extra large balcony, all the amenities you could wish for! From our arrival to departure, everyone at O2 were so friendly and helpful. St-Lawrence Gap is close by and we had a romantic dinner on the upper deck of Pisces restaurant overlooking the sea!!! I recommend O2 without any hesitation and we look forward to go back soon!!!
