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 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.

Wonderful hotel. The staff were all amazing. So helpful and friendly. Our room was excellent. Plenty of sunbeds available. Beaches and pool area were clean and Tidy. Food OK, could have done with more pasta dishes but choice ok just a little repetitive. There was a lovely homely feel about this hotel which was unexpected. The comments about the hotel being a bit tired are probably right but the atmosphere created is spot on and I believe the owners are working hard to refurbish the hotel generally. Would definitely come here again. The trips to Prickly Pear Island and the Extreme Boat Trip round the island are brilliant. Would recommend them. Overall had a great holiday. Our first time in the Caribbean but will certainly go back Read less

Just back from a totally relaxing 12 nights away and more than happy with our choice of hotel. For a 3* hotel, the food, service and presentation were great value for money. As mentioned by others, there are two small but perfectly formed beaches with plenty of sunbeds and shade. Sometimes we could be the only ones on the beach, how lovely that was. The swimming pool did have problems during our time away (unable to get chlorine) - the owner worked so hard to rectify this and by the time we left, all was fine. All meals were served a la carte which is so much nicer than self service. The restaurant staff were fantastic and the chefs were excellent. Nice breakfast choices and you could have more than one dish which was great. Lunchtime either choice of 4 really good salads, catch of the day or dish of the day - always followed by ice cream. Evening menu, 3 courses with pasta either as starter or main, soups, nice fish choices and always another choice of main dish. Some lovely desserts too to choose from too. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had the best of times, really faultless. We did some great trips, the 1/2 day to Prickly Pear was fab - $35pp Pick up is from the hotels bigger beach, rum punch flowing and the water is crystal clear. We had a driver one day arranged via reception which was great and took us wherever we wanted to go at $25pp we were out for over 6 hours. We also chartered a boat from a couple of doors up from Ocean Point which was truely memorable and fantastic value if there is a group of you. Ask for Lucian at the boatyard. I have stayed in Antigua several times before at much pricier hotels which although lovely were roughly £!000pp more expensive than Ocean Point. You have to weigh up what is important to you. If you expect a resort with steaks and lobster served as standard, immaculate rooms etc, then you would be best to pay extra and go elsewhere. If you are happy to stay in a more rustic, smaller friendly resort which may on time have a few hitches, then this one may hit the spot. Things that could be improved on are the wine.... we did try and try but its really rough.... Read less

Loved every minute. The evening team in the restaurant and the bar were awe inspiringly good. For naysayers who say it’s run down…… give me a break. This hotel is trying its hardest in the worst year hospitality has ever had. We should clap the management in appreciation. Reception team were awesome too.

We were able to stopover for 8 hours whilst waiting for a linking flight from St Maartens to Gatwick. Waiting in Antigua airport for 12 hours filled us with dread as there are no facilities there at all currently. Going to Ocean point was fantastic. Only 15 mins from the airport. The manager allowed us to stay all day and use the lovely facilities, free of charge. We just paid for the refreshments as we went. The restaurant served good food. The resort was beautiful, with 2 lovely small private beaches and a large pool with surrounding gardens. There were ample comfortable sitting areas. We had a great time and would highly recommend.
