Ocean Point Resort & Spa is a beachfront Mediterranean style hotel and located in the Hodge's Bay Area. This property is ideal for travelers who want to discover the island and all of its 365 beaches or for business travelers.
We stayed at Ocean Point for 10 days and had a lovely spacious room with a large king bed and fantastic ocean view. The 2 beaches are beautiful and very secluded and there is a large swimming pool with plenty of lounges around. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and the ladies working there were so lovely and attentive (special shout out to Debbie and Donella). Due to Covid it was a la carte menu not a buffet and occasionally the bar and restaurant ran out of ingredients but this didn't make a difference to our stay.
Nick at reception was fantastic, always so friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We would highly recommend this hotel for a quiet and relaxing stay in the Caribbean!
We loved it!

We booked this after checking out the Trip Advisor reviews. Overall, it was better than I had expected. The site is beautiful and the gardens are well maintained with lots of flowering shrubs. We saw birds, whistling frogs (don't know their specific name) and lizards. One guest did see the non-poisonous tarantula - fortunately we didn't! The rooms are quite pretty and we had a garden view room on the ground floor, which meant we could walk straight out via our veranda/patio area to the pool, which was very convenient! The air conditioning is excellent and kept our room refreshingly cool. Due to covid, the tea/coffee facilities are in reception but this was not a problem. There is also a cooled and sparkling water dispenser in reception to enable you to refill water bottles, which was an unexpected benefit. There are plenty of sun beds - some look like they could do with a bit of a clean and repair, but overall fine. We liked that the hotel had a ball and a woggle (noodle) in the pool - lots of us enjoyed using these/playing water volley ball. The two beaches are lovely and very quiet. We are generally very fussy eaters but were pleasantly surprised by the quality and flavour of the food. It was waiter/waitress service at the table which we much prefer to buffet and I think this was also due to covid. The bar do cocktails with local alcohol included in the all-inclusive price, but some of the bar staff did not know how to make them and the choice was a bit limited. However, we could not complain for the cost. Some of the staff are lovely - friendly, helpful, polite (Nick, Rossana, Tara in Reception; Debbie, Tyiana and Christian in the restaurant). Unfortunately, some of the male staff made inappropriate comments to female guests, my 17-year old daughter among them, which, as her mum, annoyed me as they were very objectifying and they did, on occasion, make her feel uncomfortable. I think the owner/proprietor should look into this. There were bits of the hotel which need a bit of updating - the shower water pressure, tiling and some paintwork but the bedding was spotless as were the towels and seating in the reception area was lovely. Cheaper to ask the lovely reception staff to arrange trips than to use the local travel reps. Overall, we had an excellent and very relaxing holiday and would definitely consider going again.
