Ocean Point Resort & Spa

Antigua, Caribbean

Virgin rating

The hotel

At times you’ll get the impression you’re in the heart of Italy – at others there’s no denying you’re in the Caribbean. Exclusively for adults, Ocean Point Resort & Spa is a kick-off-your-flip flops fusion of the idyllic Med and the exotic Tropics. From its gardens, where bougainvillea grows among palm trees, to its fabulous Sottovento Beach Club, where chefs will use fresh island produce as you dine just steps from the sea. This may be a far cry from home, with its huge beachfront pool and two seductively sandy coves, but the family owners have created a truly homely space, complete with a resident cat and dog, informal yet comfy guest rooms, and day trips to Antigua’s Prickly Pear Island for snorkelling and turtle spotting.

OK, so this isn't a glitzy, 5 star destination - and all the better for not being the sort of hotel you can find anywhere in the world. It's comparativley small and compact, right on the beach, family owned and run. The staff are outstanding - so friendly and helpful, looked as if they enjoyed workinmg there and serving guests!!

OK, so this isn't a glitzy, 5 star destination - and all the better for not being the sort of hotel you can find anywhere in the world. It's comparativley small and compact, right on the beach, family owned and run. The staff are outstanding - so friendly and helpful, looked as if they enjoyed workinmg there and serving guests!! We had some interesting conversations. Wonderful food - we looked forward to every meal. Excellent coffee machine in the reception area where we could also fill our water bottles with filtered still or sparkling water - very good arrangement. Super massage with the sound of the waves in the background... Spent 14 days there in the first half of April - now in the process of booking to return next January: I think that says it all!

Had a 2 week break here, it was amazing. First time in the Caribbean and all inclusive couldn't have been better in our opinion. Friendly staff, dry sense of humour which I can only imagine went over some of the other reviewers heads. Can't single out any one person as would be unfair! Also met lots of nice guests from UK and US and beyond. Our… Read more
Had a 2 week break here, it was amazing. First time in the Caribbean and all inclusive couldn't have been better in our opinion. Friendly staff, dry sense of humour which I can only imagine went over some of the other reviewers heads. Can't single out any one person as would be unfair! Also met lots of nice guests from UK and US and beyond. Our room on the 3rd floor had amazing sea views even from the corridor let alone from the room. Lovely big room, best bed ever, super clean and tidied every day and the air con was the quietest I'd ever experienced. Bathroom was, as people have said, slightly dated but hard to criticize it as was super clean and everything worked perfectly. Beaches small but virtually deserted so like a private beach just for us most of the time. Some weed underfoot but hard to find that off-putting as the water was lovely and sandy patches once you get right in. Pool was lovely too. So if you like a relaxed, chilled out atmosphere, good food (our fault for over indulging if we felt we'd had enough of it towards the end!) and plenty of drinks served with a smile you will have a great time. Lots to do on Antigua, we particularly enjoyed the Power Snorkeling, hiring a car and surviving the potholes, getting the minibus to and from St John's, and Hemingways in St John's. Thank you Ocean Point. Read less

From the first moment we arrived at the resort, nothing was too much trouble for the staff to sort for you, we stayed for 2 weeks & although the menu was the same as the previous week, we always had a different choice. Special shout out to Kerry Ann & Dezey & their staff in restaurant & bar area

Fabulous hotel with two amazing beaches. Exactly how you think the Caribbean will be. Superb friendly staff who will do anything to make your stay happy. The food in the restaurant is a bit limited on choices for the All inclusive but all very tasty with amazing views of the ocean whilst eating there.

We have been to Antigua before, but stayed on Jolly Beach. Hodges bay is beautiful, but cannot compare to Jolly Beach. The water is not as clear and blue, and you cannot go in without water shoes . Check in was nice and easy and the rum punch served at reception was very good . Drinks were good, but most of the time we stood at the bar waiting… Read more
We have been to Antigua before, but stayed on Jolly Beach. Hodges bay is beautiful, but cannot compare to Jolly Beach. The water is not as clear and blue, and you cannot go in without water shoes . Check in was nice and easy and the rum punch served at reception was very good . Drinks were good, but most of the time we stood at the bar waiting for someone to show up. Food choices could have been better. And good luck trying to get a refill on your drinks . Most of the time they serve you and don't follow up to see how everything is or if you need anything. The Hours for breakfast , lunch and dinner are horrible . About 2 hour period open for each meal, times should be extended. They're apparently closing in May for renovations , but looks like work has already started . Drilling in the middle of the day is not what we like to hear when we are trying to relax . Would not recommend this resort. Read less
