    The location is a slice of heaven. Beach and pool is gorgeous. We brought our three kids (12,8,6) for spring break. I knew coming here the resort was working through new management but there were some serious bumps and bruises. Still here on day 3 of 7. Let me start by saying that the bartender, Heraldo M. is amazing! Attentive, friendly, hard working and his drinks are off the hook delicious. But...oh boy are there issues with the food. The service was so slow for breakfast and lunch. Like 35 minutes to get eggs slow- when we were the only ones ordering. Their signature restaurant (called 16 degrees) while beautiful to sit in, took almost an entire hour to serve chicken fingers, and there were only 4 tables sat. No kitchen issues other than they are “trying.” After 15 hours of travel, to wait that long to feed our kids chicken fingers did not go over well with tired hungry kids. Breakfast and lunch is ok here once you actually get the food. But there are no children's menus offered for breakfast or lunch which was a huge disappointment. Dinner is a challenge here as well. Your options are 16 degrees or room service. However, when I tried to call room service no one answered (I tried for 30 min and yes, I was dialing the correct extension) then I tried to call the front desk and it went to voicemail. Voicemail for the front desk? That should not happen. Ever. So we walked a bit to Maya Bistro down the road which was delicious. They had a children’s menu which was welcomed and was a hit. The service was quick friendly and food was delicious. Overall - Everyone here is very nice and friendly. Resort is clean but I haven't seen a manager anywhere on premises for the entire time we’ve been here. I know they are under new management and I’m sure they are trying but unfortunately so far, they miss the mark. So temper your expectations for this slice of heaven. Don’t be in a hurry (or on time for that fact) for anything around here or you may be disappointed.

    We had a wonderful time at the pool. The lounges were so comfortable, towels were available and everything was very neat & clean. The food was excellent and the service was great from everyone....bartenders, service on the beach and pool deck. Layla the on-site event coordinator was very kind and friendly. We really enjoyed visiting with her. Thanks Layla. The beach was very nice too the sand was much nicer there than other places and the pool was the best. Very large and able to swim right up to the bar. Jerby was our bartender and he was a hoot. Lots of fun and always smiling. We stayed in the village of Placencia and came there twice during our trip. Spent the days at the beach and the sunset across the road at the lagoon side. It was nice to be in the village setting but enjoyed the 2 days there for something plush and relaxing. Great job from all of the staff. We will be back. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS PLACE. The Clarks from USA

    We went to Ocean Club first weekly Curry & Beer night and the experience was excellent! Food was outstanding and 100% authentic.   Their butter chicken and samosas are the best!! the nan came out hot and fresh. I couldn’t stop eating them! ?Give it a try, I am certain you will enjoy it just as much as I did.

    I’m from Ontario, Canada where Indian food is a staple- an Indian restaurant on every corner and where lots of my friends are From East India and have had me to their homes for authentic Indian food. Tonight, Ocean Club hosted their first weekly Curry & Beer night. This was authentic Indian cuisine at its best. Freshly baked naan, butter chicken & samosas!!!! Not to mention the pickles, basmati rice and mint sauce. Under the lit up trees, by the pool...I highly recommend both locals attend this rather exclusive family dining experience on Tuesdays. Something different and delightful. I’ll be back!

    Awesome food, drinks and service..

    First time visited BOC while visiting Placencia. I must say it was worth the visit. Lunch and drinks at the newly name bar was out of this world... perfect ocean view and location! Great Menu (vegan friendly) My wife and i didn’t had a set idea on what to have for appetizers since we had a late breakfast. Our server “akeem” recommended the beets salad for my wife and the fish cakes for me. not only did he recommend food but a drink for my wife also that is now her favorite “coconut mai-tai ” and Belikin beer for me since I’m a beer guy . Food presentation was on point! I personally love when my servers knows what I’m eating with out a doubt in mind, this young-man knew how my fish cakes were prepared and every vegetables in my wife plate, to put him to the test he even knew entrees from menu with out menu in hand lol. Being a retired teacher testing people comes as a norm i must say ! He also provided us with answer we had about the village that our hotel front-desk couldn’t answer. Amazing is he! The staff is very helpful here I recommend this place to anyone who love being take care of... We will definitely visit belize ocean club again as we promise akeem, say hello for us. Love conway and betty.
