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.

The heavy Italian presence adds to the great vibes here. Quiet beach and good food. I strongly recommend the Italian and local Caribbean dishes. I will be back! Read less

We just returned from Ocean Point Resort and we loved it ! The food was excellent , staff were friendly and very helpful . Our room was cleaned daily and the entire premises of the resort were kept spotless. The daily pasta dishes were delicious , try the pumpkin and crab pasta, out of this world !!! We spent most of our time at the small beach where you can snorkel in the crystal clear calm waters. We have traveled to many caribbean islands and this is the first time we have used the pool. Very clean and lots of shaded areas to just lounge. We liked that this is a quiet resort with no loud music blaring all day, very laid back atmosphere. I can't say enough good things about Ocean Point. Thank you to all of the staff for everything, this was a most relaxing and enjoyable week ! Read less

We stayed at this hotel in 2018. The first thing that has to be pointed out is the food! it was like we were eating out every night- amazing quality and therre wasnt a single meal that we were not satisifed with in the two weeks that we stayed. the pool was lovely and there was plenty of sunbeds available for the amount of guests- this could be down to us going on their off season. If I ever come back to Antigua I would not consider another hotel as this was just amazing. the staff were lovely, the cheffs were incredible and even though we were here when there was bad seaweed and we couldnt go in the sea- it was somehow still an incredible hpliday- always shuttles available to go to other beaches that were not effected by the seaweed. there was only very minor problems with this hotel but so tiny it isnt even worth writing.

A rustic, small hotel on the beach. You could pick holes in this place but to be honest, they are immaterial because it is so clean comfortable and totally charming. It is small, 72 rooms I believe and none of them higher then 3 floors. The staff are wonderful and cannot do enough for you. They greet you as if you were their friends and not just… Read more
A rustic, small hotel on the beach. You could pick holes in this place but to be honest, they are immaterial because it is so clean comfortable and totally charming. It is small, 72 rooms I believe and none of them higher then 3 floors. The staff are wonderful and cannot do enough for you. They greet you as if you were their friends and not just because they are paid to, they generally show that they are pleased to see you. At this time of the year (JulyAug) it is hurricane season so expect downpours and it is the sea of the tradewinds so expect at least a gently breeze but this is wonderful on the beach or around the pool. Also it is not their busy season and therefore always plenty of sunbeds around the pool and the beaches. Also in the restaurant. I loved this place and would happily return again and again. Antigua is a quiet island and there isn't a lot to do and you have to get a taxi everywhere as this hotel is placed in a quiet part. The taxi's are expensive but each driver is like a tour guide and tells you everything there is to know about the Island, they are truly proud of their homeland. A fantastic holiday and thank you to all the staff I WILL BE BACK Read less

Was on holiday from July 3rd to July 17th, the hotel has a beautiful setting , the gardens and the walk ways to the beaches all very well laid out. There are two beaches which are very quiet but not fantastic when compared to other beaches in Antigua. I will start with the negative points firstly, the food was cold except for the pasta bar which was cooked and served up hot, maybe the food could do with some more variation, the only other gripe was the shower was a bit erratic one day hot and the next day cold. The hotel is remote so if you are looking for restaurants to go to there is only one its called Le Bistro, but it is very expensive, failing that you need a bus or a taxi to St Johns town, The staff here are fantastic and very helpful the bar is adequate and there are a couple of live shows a week, the band were exceptional. We travelled to quiet a few beaches, runaway bay, James fort beach, long bay, jolly beach, our favourite was Dickenson bay, and the Kontiki floating bar/raft fantastic day spent there. We had a trip around the island with Treedie the taxi driver who was very knowledgable about the island, we visited Nelson dockyard which was probably my favourite place on the island, also we were fortunate to see the kids yachting event with over 65 different countries qualifying. There are a few cats and dogs in the hotel but they are no bother, the owner owns the dogs and dogs were really friendly and tame and clean. Plenty of sun beds and nice big pool Read less
