Reviewed March 25, 2013

Stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment with views overlooking the sea. The rooms are excellent with comfortable beds and pillows. 5 sharing so the pull-out bed in the lounge was used. Easy enough to pull in & out. St. Lawrence Gap is easy enough to walk too. A little bit of entertainment - personally I would like to see more entertainment but what we had was very good. Restaurant in the hotel was good enough - menu didn't change at lunch time but the menu was nice in the evening. Staff were very polite and courtesy. Right on the beach which though breezy with a rough sea was still beautiful. Value for money at ocean two - definitely. Would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back.

We travel with our two children a lot and we have been to the Caribbean 4 times, although it was our first time to Barbados ... We give this place 10 out of 10. The staff are amazing , nothing is too much trouble and we need to mention O' Neil who is the beach / pool manager because he was fantastic , to be honest all the beach staff were brilliant, always had a smile and couldn't do enough for you . We stayed room only but ate at the hotel a lot as the food was also of high quality ! The standard of the rooms is also very high . It's close to the Gap so you can have a walk down at night and grab a bite to eat and a beer. We felt very safe walking around at night .
All in all a must stay place ! We loved it so much we got home and booked for Christmas and New Year and we cant wait !

Room Tip: All the rooms are great

After reading other reviews of this hotel, we booked an ocean front apartment. Advised to ask for floor 4 or higher and were allocated floor 4. Still had a great view of both the pools and beach in front of the hotel as well as the coast along the Gap. 1 bed apartment was spacious and very comfortable. Not far from some great restaurants to get a mix of eating at the hotel's restaurant with others in the area if don't want to do own cooking. Plenty of shopping opportunities a short bus or taxi ride away. Situated between airport & Bridgetown with easy access to both. Staff very friendly and helpful. A great choice.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean front unit on floor 4 or higher.

Flew in from the States with no problem for a Saturday to Saturday stay. Took a cab from the airport that was $30 w/tip. Ocean Two lived up to all the previous reviews. We booked a "Getaway" through Interval International. Anyone planning to do that don't expect to get an oceanfront room. I believe the "getaways" are typically the 1 or 2 BR lock-offs located on the sides of the building. Oddly enough they are the biggest and nicest rooms, just not nearly the view. But for the price you can't beat it and you are only in the room a limited amount of time anyway.

As you walk out of the lobby area out to the pool the ocean few is second too none. You are literally less than 100 steps to the ocean. Ocean Two has a "man-made" beach, so it is a bit rocky and rough. There is an incredible beach about 200 yards to the right (Dover Beach) that as beaches go, is much nicer. As noted in past reviews, the pool and beach chairs, as well as the service provided, are as good as it gets.

The market across the street has most anything you might need for self catering and surprisingly the prices were about the same as the larger Super Center.

If you really want to see the island, I would recommend renting a car. Driving on the left with right hand steer is not that difficult to get used to. We got a moke from Express Car Rentals. They are less than 1/4 mile down "The Gap" from Ocean Two. They have hands down the best price on the island. Just be sure to reserve in advance and be prepared to pay cash.

The on-site restaurant was okay. We ate there two times for dinner and really had nothing to complain about. There are loads of good restaurants close by to try. Many you can walk to.

All things considered it was a great vacation and would love to go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: Ground floor oceanfront have steps off the patio right to the pool and you still have a decent view...

This is a pricey hotel but worth it for the excellent rooms and location right on the beach. The rooms have most facilities you need, with massive beds, two sinks and rain showers. The other facilities are not to the same standard (small bar, limited restaurant, small gym etc) but perfectly adequate. We stayed in a limited sea view double room and the suites with full sea view look much nicer, but are even more pricey. The staff are lovely and helpful and clearly try to promote excellent service. The main part of The Gap is about a ten minute walk away and easily reached; there are some people who try to get you to buy things nearby, but its not too bad and is common to most popular resorts. There is also a small supermarket very close - beware, it is not cheap. I would stay again.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor and sea view suite

The beauty of the OceanTwo is exceeded only by the excellent service provided by an attentive 5-star staff. The check-in process begins an phenomenal vacation as you sit on the open-air lobby's comfortable couches with a cold towel and refreshing welcome drink. The rooms are outfitted with plush beds, flat screen TVs, a luxurious bathroom, state-of-the-art kitchen, and magnificent balcony overlooking the immaculate beach and breathtaking Caribbean. The hotel's boutique feel makes each guest feel at home as the staff becomes intimately acquainted with your every need, making your stay as care-free as possible. There is no need to wake up at dawn and reserve a seat by the pool or on the beach as availability of sumptuous reclining chairs meet the capacity of the hotel's guests. The 3 pools, swim-up bar, and outdoor restaurant offer perfect respites from a hot day in the sun. Sitting at a 15-minute walk from the quaint St. Lawrence Gap, dining options and watering holes abound. Waterside restaurants offer fine cuisine of all varieties coupled with the sights and sounds of waves lapping the shores. A 6 day stay was far too short to enjoy all that Barbados, and the Ocean Two, has to offer. I will undoubtedly be returning for another wonderful vacation.

Just returned from a week at Ocean Two, Lovely hotel with friendly relaxed staff. Rooms were large with a bedroom bathroom and separate living room with kitchen, everything you would need if you wanted to eat in the apartment (we did not but the fridge was good for drinks) We had a ground floor room which initially I was not happy about, however when we stepped out onto the large terrace the pool was 2 steps away and the beech was in full view, you could also order drinks and food from the pool attendance and eat on the terrace without room charges so it did have some advantages.
Read much about the poor restaurant before we left, if you want a light lunch the tapas are good and the food in the main restaurant is ok but you can get better outside, the breakfasts are very good with a large choice and the staff are lovely.
The hotel is only a 10 - 15 min walk to the main area where you will find lots of places to eat to fit all budgets, you can also get taxis to lots of other restaurants for a few dollars. Bridgetown is only a short bus ride with the regular buses running every 10 mins and the more fun reggae buses every few seconds!.
All in all a good hotel well placed to explore the Island and have a relaxing time, will be back.

Room Tip: Request a sea view and a suit, Corner rooms best for all day sun.
