“Exceeded expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Stayed here for three nights prior to cruise. Amazing ocean front apartment on 3rd floor. Huge Super comfy bed with lots of pillows, large bathroom with twin basins & enormous shower, kitchen with fridge/freezer, ice making machine & chilled water dispenser, drinks fridge, washing machine & tumble dryer etc.etc. Lounge with chairs, sofa, dining table & large balcony with amazing seaview & another table & chairs & 2 comfy loungers. TV in bedroom & lounge, independently controlled aircon.
Excellent friendly service & good food. Beach & pool area kept spotless & we were regularly offered iced water & cool misting. The most comfortable sun loungers we have ever had. Can't think of anything negative to say. The Manager's complimentary cocktail party on Wednesday nights is a lovely way to meet the staff & the rum punch is great! Ate in each night as my husband had a bad foot & can especially recommend the tapas menu.

Room Tip: Higher floors have best sea views

My wife and I just came back from an 8 night stay at the Oceans two resort. We had a ground floor unit 109 and just loved it. We had an ocean view, a beautiful lanai with a table chairs and loungers and were just a few feet from the pool and beach. No elevators to worry about. The bed was very comfy like sleeping on a pillow and the whole apartment was modern and very nice. You are also close to some great places to eat in the GAP. Harliquin, Pices, Waterside, were our favorites for great food and wine. Get the front desk people to reserve a table for you. Anyway Oceans two is a great place to stay and the service is wonderful.

Room Tip: Ground floor suite...walk right out to the pool or the beach and lounge on your lanai

Just came back from Holiday with my wife, son, daughter in law and Grand daughter.
There is just not enough that can be said about this hotel.
Clean, Big super comfortable beds, Breezy with a magnificent view from the time of arrival, Perfectly located if you want to just relax or walk the short distance to the night life, Efficient and friendly staff who go over and beyond to please their guests, Beautiful furnishings, relaxing loungers on the beach and by the pool , Great drink cocktails , perfect rooftop location to see the sunset and I could go on and on...
Highly recommended and we will be there again in October.

Room Tip: One with a view of the Ocean.

I travelled to Barbados en famille - me, good lady wife and twin 11 year old girls. Left the dog behind and the miserable Irish weather. We were sprung from the plane to the heat of Bridgetown and onwards to Ocean 2.

From the moment go we became part of the clam lovely bubble that is Ocean 2. When a machine works well is works really well. Every aspect of our stay from front of house, restaurant and bar to house keeping was like a well oiled machine.

Now not to mention the various people working there would be a unfair in the extreme. From morning to our generally early retirement we would looked after so well. Nothing was a problem and their great laughs and generosity of spirit is completely infectious.

If you are thinking of a trip to the Carribean or even more pinpointed on Barbados and you want the right amount of attention (i.e. not too much) with fantastic service, smiles and some of the most wonderful people I have had the opportunity to meet ( on many travels, all over the planet), I'd say Ocean 2 is for you.

Let you common sense reign, book it, absorb it and cherish to through the cold months of winter and beyond.
We will be back!!

We were most amazed at the people bot of Barbados and those working in Ocean 2. What many travelers forget to tell you about it the warmth and vibe and the complete softy that is Bajan culture. Although too many to mention we would say a special thanks to Cara, Kelly, Shantelle, Patrick, O'Neal, Darrian,Kylee, Shanica, Kadijah, Joanne.

Many thanks to you all. See you again.

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor. Great view and breeze. Fantastic sound of the surf. Heaven!

Wow - we were on the 6th floor in room 1LPHA and the views were amazing. It is furnished to a very high specification and the bathroom with it's huge walk in shower was brilliant and even the shower room had a fantastic view. The bedroom was well appointed too. The living area and balcony was so comfortable we decided to stay in one night. The facilities in the resort are very good and we were on a room only rate which was fine. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and had lunch there too. The food was good but very slow - we waited 45 minutes. However we then discovered that Luigi's which was nearby was equally slow and we had lunch at George Washington House, at the Garrison and they forgot our order altogether. So our eating experience in Barbados was not very good. One of the highspots was swimming with the turtles at Oistins Pier - magical.

Room Tip: We had a corner suite - room 1LHPA - highly recommended. The bars close by were noisy so I would avo...

All this and heaven too!
Ocean Two is an amazing resort and we can't wait to go back!
We have been to several other resorts on the South Coast and Ocean Two definitely outshines them all!. Upon arrival you will look through the lobby to see the gorgeous turquoise water and beautiful white sand. Perfect!
The beach and pool areas are carefully looked after by wonderful young men who bring ice water around regularly or a scented spritzer to cool you off. The beach lounge chairs and umbrellas are put up first thing in the morning and there are always lots of towels. The beach is never crowded which is so nice! One part of the beach is coarser but there are tons of pretty shells to collect. The other area of the beach has softer sand and is close to a "surf school" which is great entertainment!
Our favourite restaurants are Cafe Luna and Pisces. Both have fantastic food and lovely venues with twinkly lights - magical!
We met so many wonderful people - especially a lovely couple from Trinidad and family from
Ireland. The staff at Ocean Two will do anything to help you out. Any small problem is solved
immediately. Anderson on security was always there with a smile when he was needed! The
manager Natalie was super helpful.
Our Oceanview one bedroom was perfect with beautiful views of the ocean and spectacular
sunsets! Everything is very modern and the beds are super comfortable.
We are already looking forward to going back next year!

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have better views.
