“Second time around”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

The 1st time we visited Ocean 2 in 2012 for our 25th Anniversary we had such a great experience here. Everything was new and the staff were abundant. It was so much fun around the pool everyday. We had a great 2 bedroom on the 6 the floor.
This time we visited, we asked for a high room and when we got there we had a room on the 2nd floor. With much persistence, my husband was able to get us a 4th floor room as everything higher was filled. Yet we saw new people going into the higher floors, while we were there. Then we found out that the place was 43 percent occupancy. As our second time we thought they would thought they'd make it special for us. Tourism is down and June is their slow time.
So finally on our last week they moved us up to the 6th floor. It was way better. Although our room had some problems with the microwave, air conditioner and fridge. It was fixed and we enjoyed our new room. The housekeepers are great. The location of Ocean 2 is walking distance to a lot of restaurants if you don't rent a car .
Thanks god for Shantelle, Oniell, Roggick, And Andre. They were the same staff as 2 years ago but they were busy doing other jobs and definitely the staff working the pool was not there. Most people had to get their own drinks from the bar. They did serve lollies some days which was a nice treat. Or a cold towel and a spray down when they had time.
We met some great couples from England, USA and Australia. The Soccer matches were on so lots of guys around the pool bar.
We see a Sandals is being built around the corner from Ocean 2. We might try all inclusive next time we go to Barbados !

My husband and I just returned from a stay at Oceans Two in Barbados (June-14). This hotel was absolutely wonderful, great staff, location was really good, most place quite easy to get to. We had a standard room which was really good but next time will upgraded to a one bedroom suite, would have loved a fridge in the room. We would definitely go back to Barbados and stay at Oceans two again.

My husband and I decided on Ocean Two for a belated honeymoon. We had been waiting almost a year to go since we had planned and booked the trip. Everything was perfect! We had booked a standard room and were upgraded to the 1 bedroom suite. The suite was beautiful; all appliances that were needed were there. We were able to eat breakfast in the suite about half of our trip.
The staff was wonderful; they helped my husband plan a dinner on the beach our 2nd night there. This was the only dinner we ate from the restaurant along with 1 lunch and a few breakfasts. Food was really good but service was slow, however I found that service was slow at almost every restaurant that I ate at on our trip.
The rest of the hotel was beautiful. The pool was small but we never had a problem finding a lounge chair. We couldn't swim in the beach near the hotel but Dover Beach is a very short walk away with access to bathrooms, loungers & umbrellas, and a couple of beach bars/restaurants.
St. Lawrence Gap was a 10 minute walk away with Dover Market about a 2 minute walk. The only negative thing I have to say was about our walk to the Gap. I'm not sure if it was because we're young but we seemed to be a target for every drug dealer that hangs out in front of the market. A couple of times they followed us for a short while, sometimes swearing at us if we didn't give them money. It was actually better at night after the sun set, then we weren't bothered. Some nights going out we took a cab to the restaurant or bar to feel safer (it cost $10 USD). But once we got about 1 block away the walk was fine and we both loved the restaurants/bars in that area. I recommend Apsara Samudra and Harlequin for dinner along with Sharkey's and the Old Jamm Inn for drinks.
We just got home today and I already miss it! We're counting down the days till we can go back!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor (room 207). On the nights they had live music in the lobby it was very lou...

I had the privilege of spending two amazing nights at the Ocean Two Resort and Residences in June 2014. I stayed in one of their Ocean Front Suites (Pent House 7) which had absolutely amazing and commanding views of Dover Beach from the large balcony. My stay got off to a great start after the very warm and professional welcome I received from Malinda at the Front Desk. She immediately took me over to have a seat in the waiting area where I received a cold towel to help cool down and a non-alcoholic cocktail. After some brief paperwork, I was shortly thereafter taken up to my room where my luggage was waiting for me.

The suite was large, immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. This property clearly believes in cutting edge technology and this was very evident in the room. Every possible amenity you could think of was in the suite. Safe, iPod Docking Station, two Flat Screen TVs, wardrobe, chest of drawers, multiple pillows, a large bathroom with an impressive Rain Drop shower head, a couch which doubled as a sofa bed, dining room table, full kitchen with utensils, coffeemaker, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, cutlery, crockery, stove, oven and refrigerator. At this point let me say, the shower stall is spacious enough to fit five persons comfortably. The shower head was absolutely amazing and a definite plus in the bathroom with very good pressure even though I was on the 7th floor.

Service at this hotel is top notch. Hopefully persons reading this review will be lucky enough to be there on a Wednesday evening when management of this resort hosts a brief cocktail party to meet and greet guests of the property. This usually takes place from 6pm to 7pm on their rooftop deck. Due to inclement weather, the one during my stay was held in the lobby and it was great. There were tasty hors d'oeuvres, very good homemade rum punch and a great atmosphere. Each morning I came down, I was always greeted by name by Malinda at frontdesk. She is definitely an asset to this property. Security is very present on the beach and in the lobby area so one will never feel unsafe. Access to the rooftop deck is by flashing our room key in the elevator just above button #7 only. The elevator is programmed to take you directly to the 8th floor deck once you flash your key card.

The only meal I ate at the hotel was breakfast and this was exceptional and provided a great start to my day. There is very well laid out Buffet Breakfast including traditional items such as scrambled eggs, omelettes, bacon, baked beans, spinach cakes, sweet potato croquettes, banana bread, coconut bread, toast and assorted cereals etc. Service in the restaurant was always warm and friendly.

One of the highlights of this hotel is its rooftop deck where there is also a small swimming pool located. It’s great for relaxing, taking in the sunsets, having drinks and getting a bird’s eye view of the other nearby properties. There are also other pools on the ground floor including one with a swim-up bar. There is also a large quantity of loungers around so you never have to move early to get one.

Ocean Two has clearly set the bar at a very high echelon where few hotels in Barbados have reached this far in terms of service and facilities. They clearly understand the requirements of discerning travellers and it’s clear that great thought has been put into the design and features of their rooms. One added bonus is that WiFi throughout the property is completely free of charge and I always had an “excellent” connection wherever I was around the property. Believe it or not, there are some properties in Barbados such as the Hilton which still charge exorbitant sums of money for WiFi access which I think is preposterous in 2014.

The location of the property is also first-rate. It’s at the quiet end of St. Lawrence Gap, right on Dover Beach with several bars and restaurants within walking distance. The Dover Market is the nearest convenience store and is open from 7am to 10pm each day. You can also purchase delicious local food at their deli counter during the day. It’s just a five minute walk from the front desk. You definitely can’t go wrong with Ocean Two and I shall definitely be returning for another stay here in the not too distant future. The numerous photos I have attached don’t do this place any justice. Thank you Ocean Two for the excellent stay!

Room Tip: While the "hotel rooms" are nice, I would highly recommend going for the Ocean Front Suite...

First impression: the property is breathtaking. Second impression: the property is breathtaking. The first thing you see when you step inside the wide open entrance of the Ocean Two Resort is not the front desk, but it's backdrop of the teal/ aqua Caribbean Ocean. The design of the lobby is such that the beach is visible from the front door. A friendly staff member greets and shows you to round tables and comfortable chairs that face the ocean. That is where you will fill out the paperwork. My daughter and I stayed here for a week to celebrate my birthday. The genuine smiles and happy nature are the culture of this property. We had a one bedroom oceanfront stylishly appointed suite. The suite has a full stainless steel kitchen, granite counter tops, high end appliances with everything from a teapot to coasters. It also has a washer and dryer, dining table, two flat screen tvs, two air conditioning units, two ceiling fans and a immense shower with a granite bench seat. Tile floors keep everything cool and clean. An oversized balcony with fabric cushioned armchairs provides comfortable seating for morning coffee or afternoon wine. The balcony also had wall sconces with piped music. There is ample drawer, cabinet and closet space. The bedding is white luxurious cotton comfort. The are even dimmer switches on the lights for ambiance. The restaurant food was delicious. Every morning the breakfast buffet offered an omelet station, breakfast meats, pancakes, fresh fruit, baked beans, grilled vegetables, cereals, yogurt…you name it and they will happily provide it. We ate dinner there several times. One of my favorite items on the menu is their Goat Cheese Salad baked in a pocket of phyllo pastry and served on roasted peppers and beet roots. Everything about the property is a ten, but you only let me rate it a five.

A friend and I stayed at Oceans Two last Summer and it really is a great place to stay. This was my second stay at the resort. Its located in a safe area with lots of restaurants and shops. I didn't feel threatened to roam about. There is a convenience store just outside of the resort where you can purchase items you may have forgotten to bring.

We had an ocean-view room, which made it nice morning, noon or evening. They rooms are furnished beautifully and very comfortable, just a very relaxing place to stay. There is occasional sunset entertainment which was a plus. Plenty of rum punch!

If your travels take you to Barbados, this is a must stay.

Room Tip: Stay in floor 4 and up Oceanview
