“Second visit - just as good!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This was our second visit to Ocean Two having stayed here in January 2012 and again this January for 8 nights. From the moment you arrive and sip your welcome cocktail you know you are going to have a wonderful time. We had requested a room on a higher floor and were pleased to be shown to room 401a that had a wonderful double aspect balcony overlooking the sea. Whilst the bathroom was smaller than our previous room (it was still very large though!) the bedroom was slightly bigger and had more wardrobe space. The bed was large and super comfy and the lounge and kitchen spacious, spotlessly clean and with a table and 6 chairs. You have everything you could possibly need and more.

It did get a bit busy round the pool a few days but there are plenty of beds on the small beach which are just as good. The staff are always friendly, smiling and very attentive bringing round chilled water, ice lollies and cooling mint towels both round the pool and on the beach.

We did eat in the restaurant every day for lunch and after reading not so positive reviews about the service and food we thought things may have gone downhill but lunch every day was delicious and service good too. Ocean Two is situated about a 10 minute walk from The Gap where there are lots of great restaurants and bars so we only ate in the restaurant at night once, but again the food was good.

All in all a fabulous stay and although we had planned on only coming back once, we are already planning our next visit for next January!

Four of us stayed here for 3 nights prior to a cruise (part of a package offered by our travel agent). We had smallish side ocean view rooms with good sized bathrooms. Lovely beds and bedding, brilliant huge walk-in shower rooms wih overhead shower heads, and a hand-held shower which suits us as we like different types of shower. Also twin wash basins were good. The hotel opens onto an idyllic Caribbean beach with white sand and turquoise sea. The beach staff were brilliant in finding us beds and umbrellas just where we wanted them and beach towels. Also the reception staff were very friendly and helpful as were the porters and the bar staff.
The only negative point would be the restaurant set-up. Generally there were pleasant staff, but there was no evidence of a restaurant manager to keep things flowing. The food was OK but one dinner here was more than enough. Service was very slow. For example, if the milk container for cereal milk ran out at breakfast someone would disappear for 5 minutes before the refill arrived, and the staff at the egg prep station were generally pretty slow - there could be a sizeable queue for eggs. Overall though a very good hotel but only stay B&B - eat dinner elsewhere.

Room Tip: Our side ocean view room on a high floor was fine - the rooms at the front seem to be the self cater...

My wife and I chose this hotel on the basis of a friends recommendation and werent disappointed .Check-in was swift with cold towels and a drink on arrival, within 10 minutes we were being shown around our one bedroomed ocean front room. Our room was kept immaculate throughout by the staff. We made use of all the facilities in the room, the washing machine and dryer came in handy -no washing to go home to. Free wifi throughout the hotel which was very fast meant we could facetime our families without a problem from anywhere in the hotel including around the pool. Cocktail evenings on the roof on a Wednesday night were a good event-great sunsets .We stayed on a room only basis and ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food and service were good , however the dining area did feel like a cafe bar even for dinner and the Saturday BBQ - a few candles or flowers for effect/atmosphere would easily solve this ( note to management ). We hired a car via the hotel for a couple of days and took in the west coast to the north of the island, ,Welchmans Gully , Bathsheba, where we had lunch, and the East coats as well as Bridgetown itself.Getting "lost" as the road signs are not brilliant was part of the experience-not to be missed.Hotel also run a shuttle to Oistins on a Friday night. We booked "Cool Running" Catamaran via hotel for their "swim with turtles" cruise- a great trip.
Poolside, with happy hour twice a day 12.30 and 4.30 drinks 2 for 1( a great idea ) also included cold water drinks at 1030 ,ice lollies at 11.30 everyday and the cool peppermints spry and cold towels during the afternoon-all with smiling service from all staff . A luggage store with use of a courtesy room for showers on check out were all part of the service we had come to expect at this great resort.
As for it being our first trip to Barbados, we felt safe wherever we went and loved how friendly the locals were,

Room Tip: Go for an Ocean Front one bedroom unit as a minimum

Myself and my husband chose this hotel on the basis of the excellent reviews already on trip advisor, checkin was swift with cold towels and a drink on arrival, within 10 minutes we were being shown around our one bedroomed ocean front room, everything we could possibly want and more to enjoy our 11 night stay! Our room was kept immaculate throughout by the staff, we made use of all the facilities in the room, the washing machine and dryer came in handy at the end of our holiday no washing to go home to. Free wifi throughout the hotel which was very fast we could skype our families without a problem from anywhere in the hotel including around the pool.
Whilst we were here it was my 40th birthday and during the day a bottle of wine and lovely poem about birthdays was left in our room for me to enjoy, also a waiter delivered a slice of cheesecake to me on my sun lounger with happy 40th decorated on the plate, nice touch and thank you!
Cocktail evenings on the roof on a Wednesday night and a fabulous singer on a Monday and Thursday evening who was amazing. We stayed on a room only basis and ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food was very good however service could be slow sometimes waiting 45 minutes for your food to arrive from the point of ordering, we did attend the barbecue on the night of my birthday and I was disappointed as it lacked atmosphere even though they did have a guy playing the steel drums.
I would certainly recommend Dee a taxi driver who is contracted through the hotel to take you on a tour of the island, he charges 70 bds an hour and will take you anywhere you want to go, we booked him for 5 hours on a Sunday and he took us up the west coast to the north of the island, then to st Nicholas abbey wher he kindly waited whilst we visited and then onto Bathsheba where we had lunch, Dee was very informative throughout the trip and made the trip worthwhile, far better than hiring a car and getting stressed with getting lost as the road signs are not brilliant, we saw everything we had on our list even a wander along the beach to have a look at sandy lane hotel, Dee comes highly recommended.
We did book a return trip with the hotel to oistins which was 15bds each return which is well worth a trip whilst you are visiting barbados, it's such an experience not to be missed.
Happy hour twice a day at the hotel 12.30 and 4.30 drinks 2 for 1 great idea, also enjoyed the ice lollies at 11.30 everyday and the cool peppermint towels during the afternoon.
Overall I would recommend ocean two it certainly lived up to our expectations, as for it being our first trip to barbados, we felt safe wherever we went and loved how friendly the locals were, it was such a fab holiday that we have booked barbados again for November this year but decided to stay in a different location so we can spend more time exploring another area instead of st Lawrence gap, I'm sure after our next visit in November if we come back to barbados and am sure we will if we stay in st Lawrence gap ocean two will be our first choice without doubt

This is a stunning boutique property in an excellent location, that is, if you don't want to be in a gated enclosure, which we don't. Situated at the end of St. Lawrence Gap, right on a small beach and next to Dover Beach, the resort is safe walking distance to many restaurants. All suites have large balconies facing the beach. The fully equipped kitchen is good enough for longer stays, the bathroom is lovely and everything is very comfortable. Service is super friendly and generally very good. If you are without a rental car, taxis are always available and reasonable.
Some minor negatives: bedroom has no window; closet space not overly generous, pools are small, food at the restaurant is mediocre at best, considering the generally high standard. But all in all, highly recommended as it's immensely enjoyable. I still dream of the golden beach, blue sky and water, and red loungers and umbrellas!

My girlfriend stayed at this resort last year and could not have been happier.
From out check in to the day we left everything was amazing. Our room was beautiful, the pre paid breakfast was great and plentiful and the amenities of the hotel were excellent.
He choice of great restaurants in the area was also a bonus.
We would certainly return to this hotel.
