Ocean Point Resort & Spa

Antigua, Caribbean

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 the Italian chef lovingly conjures up tastes of his homeland from 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, turtle spotting, and their chef’s tasty picnic boxes.

We are regular visitors to Antigua, but our April visit was the first time staying at Ocean Point. We were impressed and have already booked to return there later this year. The hotel is small and characterful, and although the furnishings are not the newest available, everything is kept spotlessly clean. The buildings seem in sympathy with the local area. We loved the how cleverly the sugar mill stump had been incorporated into the façade/reception and how the design of well-placed window vents and shade created such an amazingly cool reception area. The managers are visual, pro-active and regularly chatting with guests: when extra poolside shade was mentioned, new umbrellas quickly appeared. The staff are some of the most consistently warm and friendly people we have encountered anywhere on the island, with the groundstaff, housekeeping and restaurant staff especially cheery and very hardworking. Contrary to some other reviews, our experience was that all nationalities holidaying at Ocean Point were treated equally. There was a real multi-national and welcoming vibe to the resort and when we were staying the guests ranged in age from 20s to 80s. The food is a Mediterranean and Caribbean mix, and we enjoyed the balance of fresh vegetables, fish and meat. The range of choices at meal times was in line with our expectations of smaller hotels. The main meal serving times were generous. We are early risers, but for those who prefer later breakfast, the continental option ran almost until lunch time. Also, there were cakes, cookies and pizza available mid through to late afternoon, with coffee/tea available from the bar throughout the day and evening. Our party of six found plenty of options for every meal and we appreciated that a packed lunch was available on request for days out (tailored to our preferences). Drinks on the ‘all inclusive’ option are quite limited but manageable. (For TripAdvisor regulars someone has added a photo of the ‘inclusive drinks menu’ on the review site - or we are sure the hotel would email it if asked.) Perhaps Ocean Point managers could consider an optional supplementary payment to extend the range of ‘all inclusive’ drinks for guests who would like a greater choice. This hotel is excellent value for money. Will Ocean Point suit you? As always, it will depend on personal preferences and expectations. For us, seems an ideal hotel - for people who are happy with quieter days around the pool or on the small beaches, reading and swimming, or taking a trip out (hotel can organise, taxis readily available and local bus passes by) - for people who do not regard an occasional lukewarm shower as a major catastrophe - for those who appreciate menus designed to taste and enjoy food but not waste it - if you think walking to the bar to order/collect your own drinks is a great opportunity for some exercise and to chat with fellow guests from around the world - if you enjoy evenings of conversation and occasional low-key entertainment Read less

Please don’t waste your money this place need a major over haul. It’s rooms are outdated it support to be all inclusive not. If you want something to eat after noon you have to pay for it. No irons in the room cats in lobby. Lobby is old

Ok,so there wasn't entertainment every night. Not all alcohol was included in all inclusive. The rooms aren't 5* luxury. But this place isn't sandals. You get what you pay for and for us it was perfect with lovely, approachable staff. Two beautiful sandy coves and perfect prickley pear island only a stones throw away. Give it ago, i wouldnt hesitate in returning . Read less

After a frustrating afternoon, missed my flight over to Montserrat, arrived at this hotel which was in a beautiful location tired and hungry. Asked the clerk if there was room service to be told there wasn’t, enquirer whether I could at least have a sandwich because I’ve been traveling for the entire day, I was told I will check and give you a call, to date I have not received that call. However, I have a shower and proceeded to the restaurant for dinner. It seems that they have theme nights and that night was Caribbean, there was a head waitress actually came placed me at my table and proceeded to state that she could show me what was on the buffet for that evening. She was very gracious. Dinner was amazing. The next morning I had an early check out because I didn’t want to encounter exactly what happened the day before when I got to the reception, it was deserted no one available to check me out, looked around the office was dark there was no security guard. I left my key on the front desk and left the premises. This to was a very disappointing experience, i’d recommend a review of your check in and out process and please consider doing room service.
