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.

A big thank you to the staff & owners for keeping the hotel running to such a high standard during the current CV situation. If they can pull this off under these conditions it must be amazing when they aren't subject to these extreme circumstances! It's a gem of a hotel with lots of character.

A big thank you to the staff & owners for keeping the hotel running to such a high standard during the current CV situation. If they can pull this off under these conditions it must be amazing when they aren't subject to these extreme circumstances! It's a gem of a hotel with lots of character. Do remember you are paying for a 3 star. I must say though there were elements which warranted 4 star. The Italian food was a real treat & special thanks for the sushi. Drinks wise...wine very good & cocktails were professionally done. Views from room were 5 star & both the pool & beach areas were lovely. The deck area for drinks is one of the best bars with a seaview. Would just like to say on behalf of Brits who like to travel & experience culture, apologies for those who continually moan & demand egg & chips. So embarrassing! Especially considering the extreme circumstances. Thanks again for keep our holiday going right until the end. FABULOUS!!! Read less

In view of the Corona virus hanging over everyone, the staff were very good, and the hotel had a club atmosphere with everyone chatting.

In view of the Corona virus hanging over everyone, the staff were very good, and the hotel had a club atmosphere with everyone chatting. We were glad we were on a British Airways holiday as the Virgin passengers kept getting their flights cancelled and their rep did not turn up! Our Oceanview room was lovely and the cleaners were excellant. As the water is Solar heated, it will not be hot in the early morning, Food hygeine was very good and hand cleanser was used as you entered the restaurant (except by a French couple who refused it). The hotel condition overall was very good although not for people with mobility problems as there are a lot of steps. Read less

we returned from ocean point at the end of january and both my partner and i came back with a very bad virus,which had similarities to the current covid 19.We both had hacking coughs and my partner had a high temperature which her doctor thought she had a lung infection.Other people at the hotel were also coughing.Asyou are probably aware the hotel is run by Italians and they had several italian visitors while we were there.It would be interesting to know if anyone else came back with similar ailments. the property was very tired and the food and drink were very much the same every day.As somebody else has mentioned on somedays there was a strong sewage smell which also came up into the bathroom as there were no sink plugs. staff tried there hardest but the hotel needs a lot of money spent on it to even bring it to a three star. stayed in hotels all over the world but this was probably the worst.

We have recently returned from a seven day holiday at the Ocean Point, and all in all had a great time. I understand many of the negative reviews, but you have to keep reminding yourself what you are paying for this unusual place, compared with most Caribbean hotels. It does need a little care and attention in places, but this almost adds to the charm. We booked a Ocean Front room which was in an excellent position , overlooking the beach and sea, with a nice balcony. The room was kept spotlessly clean and had all that was necessary for a comfortable holiday. The bar was well stocked with a fair choice of drinks for this level of All Inclusive. The Carib beer was very good compared to the Piton we had had the week before in St Lucia. Coffee was very hit and miss though unless Ophia was on duty. The food during the first half of our stay was very good and varied, unfortunately during the last few days restrictions were applied due to Covid 19, and most of the buffet food had to be served by the staff. For some reason the food never seemed as good after this. The majority of staff were very pleasant and friendly, there were some however who were in urgent need of customer service training or should maybe consider a career in a different industry. Certain members though were special to us and deserve a mention, Laura, Gabriel, Shenique, Nicole and Vanessa in the restaurant and Managers Rosanna and Claudia all helped to make our holiday very enjoyable. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation, but just don't come expecting perfection. Sue and Paul Bishop Read less

we arrived to a lovely welcome, rum punch and I thought its going to be ok! We was taken to our room which we thought was lovely, over looked the beach and pool, very spacious, a good size bathroom with lovely towels, hairdryer and good soaps and body butter. The bed was very comfy and the air conditioning worked. Sadly on having a shower we found the water was either very hot or cold, never had a warm shower! We loved the swimming pool even though it could have been maintained a little better, there was tiles broken or missing. The sun beds were a little disappointing due to not having a back rest so you had to be lying down all the time. there was lovely wicker beds but you had to get up early to get those. and not enough parasols and the ones there were was broken. The food was cold, and not much choice. Breakfast was good, you had to be very patient when waiting for toast as it took forever. the coffee was lovely and it was good to have a mug and teapot for tea.Sadly we happened to be there on the first case of corona virus which meant we couldn't collect our food, I know why it was put in place, for our safety , but certainly put a dampener on our holiday. We celebrated our anniversary while we was there and what a lovely surprise to have a bottle of champagne put in our room. This hotel could be so much better by just keeping the food hot. Read less
