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 have stayed at Sandals and Jolly Beach before so have both 5star and 3star experience of Antigua. Was a bit worried about some mixed TA reviews but have to say we loved this hotel. Best way to describe is that it feels like a big, relaxed house party where people chat, mix and gather - perhaps also because it’s a small family business. It’s not perfect (bit tatty in places) but if you want perfect then pay double and stay at Sandals! As a 3star all inclusive it is a great find and great value. The pool is big and quiet (no blasting music); the rooms are big, very clean and with huge and very comfortable beds - we slept like logs. The bathrooms are pretty standard but spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate. There are 2 nice secluded beaches with plenty of shades and beds. The beach towels were fine. We like our food and really enjoyed our meals here - the restaurant actually feels like a restaurant not a canteen. Breakfast is varied so plenty of choice from fruit to pastries to pancakes, fresh cooked omelettes and typical English cooked. Lunch is soup, salads plus hot meats/fish and delicious pasta and dinner has soup, salads, veggies, meat & fish dishes, pasta. Of course there’s a set of salads they use as a base, but these are always supplemented by other salads that vary daily. We had no problem finding plenty of things we liked to eat. The puddings were okay - little pastry things, brownies, fruit salad, crepes etc but tbh nowhere we’ve stayed in Caribbean seems to do really great puds. The drinks were good with plenty of choice. And as all the reviewers have agreed the staff are really really great. I guess some people will always find things to moan about - but they need to realise that the economics of running a hotel mean certain choices and trade-offs need to be made and this hotel is not part of a massive chain and in my view much the better for it! We would definitely come again without hesitating. Read less

We arrived after a long trip from the UK. We were checked in quickly and offered a rum punch. Wow! A young guy helped us to our room with our cases. Talking to others we must have had a decent sized bathroom. My husband isn't small and didn't moan and we could fit 2 of us in at the same time which others have moaned about.

We arrived after a long trip from the UK. We were checked in quickly and offered a rum punch. Wow! A young guy helped us to our room with our cases. Talking to others we must have had a decent sized bathroom. My husband isn't small and didn't moan and we could fit 2 of us in at the same time which others have moaned about. The rooms were spotless all holiday thanks to the Housekeeping staff. A great job. Although at times there was a smell which we couldn't locate?? It could have been the drains?? Our first evening we ventured down to the bar. As a staying guest I notice new arrivals straight away. On our first night we were not welcomed or said "hello" to at the bar. We just ordered our drinks. My husband said "that wasn't very welcoming"!. It wasn't. The hotel is smallish, which we liked. It has various seating areas near the bar and pool with a chill out zone near the pool. There is foliage around which is lovely. The view is fab. Very relaxing. It is in a fairly residential area which is why we were allocated All Inclusive as there wasn't any bars/restaurants to talk about nearby. When you look closer, there should be a bit of money thrown at it to update the paintwork and definitely the sunbeds on the pontoon and beaches. Quite broken some of them. I had written to the hotel in advance about beach towels so knew the lay of the land. We never had a problem with taking towels or dropping them back as some say they had. The food was abundant, but when you stay over a week, it gets a bit samey. We never went hungry and there was always something to have, but ..... for feedback sake, I would seriously want there to be more local cuisine. I'm in the Caribbean and no one would have known! I had read reviews before my holiday advising about the Italian influence in the food department. This didn't phase me and my husband because we like Italian. However, we thought we would get Caribbean as well which we felt we didn't. We used a local taxi driver, female, by the name of Ocia. She was lovely and took us on several trips around the island. It's best to talk to other guests and see what they are doing as it can get quite expensive using, say, tour operator excursions. We found the atmosphere at the hotel quite odd at times. I'm not sure if it was because we stayed from after Christmas through New Year and a bit beyond, but the feeling was there was a heavy Italian contingent staying and the Owners of the Hotel were paying 100% attention to them and zero to the non-speaking Italian residents. Perhaps they were family or friends?? It didn't spoil our holiday, but a "Good Morning" or a smile from the Management wouldn't have gone amiss from time to time. We really enjoyed the 2 bands who came on site to entertain us 2 evenings. More would have been good. To sum up, our own opinion is we had a fab holiday. Antigua is a beautiful island and the local staff in the hotel are as friendly as can be. This isn't a bad review, I'm just giving my feedback on some pointers. PS .... we made some great friendships and had some super laughs at times! Read less

This resort is everything! Don’t believe the bad reviews, anyone complaining obviously thinks they are going to have a 5 star resort experience at a 3 star resort, which is ridiculous. From the wait staff to the incredible views and food this place is a MUST stay! We can’t wait to come back!
