starting with the warm smiles at the cooling tower also that greeted us at our arrival or stay at oceans 2 exceeded our expectations. The staff was helpful friendly and courteous. The accommodations were clean, luxurious and well appointed. The views was marvelous and the location stunning. We really enjoyed our trip. A lovely hotel at a very reasonable cost.
This hard to please traveler highly recommends this hotel.

From the moment we arrived at ocean 2 I knew we had made the right decision! First of all let me start by saying ocean 2 is by far the most attractive property in the gap. Other places seem a little run down exterior wise, but not ocean 2! When we arrived a bellman assisted with our luggage and we were told our bags would be waiting for us in our rooms (hassle free). We were greeted by Shanica's smiling faced and escorted to relax while she gathered our paperwork. The view from the lobby...breathtaking! We were immediately offered a refreshing cocktail, and quickly went over paper work (there is a $400 deposit). We were then escorted to our ocean front room ( more like condo). Shanica toured us around our room, and showed us the need to knows of the room! You must book an oceanfront room the view is breathtaking! Oh and let me not forget to mention how clean our condo was, I would literally eat off the floor!! I'm a stickler for cleanliness and this passed my test with flying colors. The bed, oh the bed, me and my boyfriend struggled every morning to wake up in time for excursions because the bed was so plush!
Perfect location as well, we walked to the gap every night which was a 10-15 minute breezy walk!
Stay at Ocean 2, as an avid traveler, sticker for cleanliness, and slave to luxury I promise you will NOT regret it!!

I am writing this review on the plane back from Barbados. The Oceans Two hotel actually own hotel of the year in Barbados yesterday and i can certainly see why!

Where to start...

Location:
Perfection! 10 minutes from the airport , 5 minute walk from st Lawrence gap bars and restaurants.
Only thing is the sea at this hotel is the meeting point of the Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean so it can get wavey, water is warm though, also it's so easy to walk to or drive 15 mins to the Caribbean beaches it doesn't honestly matter and it's not bad at all.

The Staff:
The staff at this hotel were truly kind people, and what struck me was it wasn't just an act to please management and guests alike it seemed genuine. Everyone from the hotel manager himself Mr Paul Collymore to the reception staff to the maids and bellman couldn't do enough to help make our stay relaxing, fun and comfortable.
I must in particular shout out the stars of our stay who included Remel at reception ( who always has a smile and the patience of a saint), Michael at the water sports / beach station is such a nice man and encouraged us to find the sea turtles, Adrian the head chef who when we said we hadn't felt we'd tried true Bajan flavourful food during our holiday worked late to prepare us a wonderful midnight feast true to Bajan flavour, Luke the restaurant manager who took our comments on food on board and introduced menu changes and more Bajan flavours by the next day! Alison the room property supervisor who couldn't do enough for us and was lovely to just chat too, Melinda the cheeriest concierge you'll ever meet, and the hotel manager Paul who couldn't of made us feel most appreciated as guests.

The rooms:
Stunning, spacious and spotless!
The simple hotel rooms are lovely and fairly spacious but If you can opt for the one bedroom ocean front suite, it is huge and could easily fit a small family. The kitchen was so well equipt we cooked breakfast everyday in room. Unlike most places the kitchen ware was so clean you could use it without having to pre clean it yourself as everything looked brand new. Room also has washer , dryer , cooker, coffee maker, kettle and dishwasher complete with free tablets, other great things were the huge balcony & stylish furniture, the huge rain shower for two and two tv's and iPod Dock.

The little touches :
Complimentary ice Lolly by the pool, Ice cold face towels on the beach and full body spritz cool down all help make this hotel feel more like a 5star. (Although even more of these touches throughout the day would of been even better).
Also free non motor water sports.

Food:
Now in the beginning my partner and I felt the cocktails were amazing but over priced but this is being looked at by management so I am certain with all the changes made already during our stay this will be cheaper upon our return to oceans two, the fridges in the suites produce free filtered water and ice so that's great and we even got a welcome package of bacon, egg, bread and milk complimentary for our arrival which was great they just needed to add some butter sticks To go with that and your good for your first morning without a jet lagged supermarket trip also tea, coffee and sugar is also topped up daily. Fantastic!!!

car hire:
Ask Remel at reception to contact Chris King for car hire he was much cheaper than the others and was very helpful and it's a small family business. Plus he rents Rihanna her cars when she is on the island, in fact ours was the one Rihanna and Oprah drove around the Island. Also Chris King gave us buy 2 days and get one free. So ask about that.

Kids:
As a 29 year old couple travelling without children this hotel was perfect as there wasn't more than 5 children at the hotel and the hotel keep the roof deck pool child free which we liked for a romantic holiday it was nice to have an adult only zone. There isn't entertainment or holiday clubs ect so if you do have children try there sister hotels which are more family orientated.

Tips:

Take Bajan money over American money, everything is priced in Bajan currency.

Get a cab too and from the airport to the hotel, it's $31 barbados dollars to the hotel and $40 back to the airport also you get extra time at the hotel as we left 2 hours before our flight but people on coaches left 3.5 hours before and it's only a ten minute transfer time.

Try Champers / Cin Cin or The Cliff restaurants for an element romantic fine dining experience. The hotel will book it for you.

Go to Oistens on a Friday night and don't leave early! You'll miss the carnival atmosphere and dancing.

Defiantly hire a car and see the island, we drove the whole island in 5 hours stopping at various spots and beaches, it's amazing and if you get lost the locals will stop and help you they are literally the friendliest people you'll ever meet abroad!

Most importantly try the Cool Runnings catamaran morning slot. Amazing day, fun, great food, loads of free booze, and you get to swim with the sea turtles. Good for all ages.

Enjoy Barbados and visit the oceans two! We'll defo be back!

I'm writing a review while enjoying my ocean view. we booked this hotel for our honeymoon. our room, was upgraded to a 1bed ocean view honeymoon suite by the hotel. on arrival we were welcomed by a lovely refreshing drinks. then we had a tour of the hotel. when we got to our 1 bed suite, on the dining table there was note, and it was from the hotel staff and management wishing us a happy marriage and a lovely honeymoon. I was touched so much so that I am having it framed :-)
You can not go wrong with this hotel!!! The staff are angels, they go above and beyond to make sure you are happy and that you are enjoying your stay.
the hotel is in perfect condition as it's just turned 3! it has it's own white sandy beach. we had no problem having a sun lounger, there are always plenty around. the lovely beach staff are there to make sure you enjoy yourself, complimentary use of their water sport equipment, you get complimentary lovely ice lollies every morning on the beach, there is also a regular supply of ice cold water on the beach by one of the staff.
the breakfast is lovely, you have different variety of food and fruits. There are 2 pools, one on the roof garden, which is adult only pool, and one by the beach. there is also a swim up bar, with great drinks. every thursday and sunday, there are fresh coconut drinks, in the actual coconut :-)
This hotel is by far the best hotel I have ever been too, the staff are super extra friendly and smiley, one of the words you hear most is "My pleasure" with a lovely smile on their beautiful faces. I think the staff and management are real angles and they have a great personality. we'll be going back to London on tuesday afternoon, we'll miss the staff, the weather, ocean two and the lovely beaches. we've decided to come back for our anniversary.

Room Tip: suite 403 is nice and quite with ocean view.

This was our first time visiting the island of Barbados. The people are very welcoming, the beaches are gorgeous and the food is amazing. What made the trip "The Best Vacation" was Ocean Two. Typically when we go on vacation we schedule excursions however we had NO desire to leave the property. The common areas (indoors and outdoors) are approachable yet they do have some special touches - comfortable lounge chairs and fruit infused water all day, every day. The beach is great. We brought our 4 year old daughter, she was able to swim and play in the shallow area. We enjoyed the food and drinks however the best part was the staff. Friendly and sincerely wanted us to have an amazing vacation.

Room Tip: Great views on the 7th floor.
