O2 Beach Club & Spa by Ocean Hotels

Barbados, Caribbean

Virgin rating

The hotel

The fresh and contemporary, O2 Beach Club & Spa by Ocean Hotels boasts one of the coolest beach spots on the island. Elegant, exclusive, and set on 1,000ft of powder white beach, this resort offers unparalleled comfort and personalised service throughout your stay. When you’re not relaxing on your sun lounger, perfectly pitched by one of three glittering pools, you’ll be enjoying the premium All-Inclusive offerings – and you’re certainly spoilt for choice, with several dining options, including a rooftop patio offering cocktails, tapas, and amazing views of Oistins Bay. You’ll love the adults-only Luxury Oceanfront Junior Suites (some of which are swim-up!) but the hotel is also perfectly suited to families with teenagers, or groups of friends; upgrade to a Luxury Concierge room for more space in an exquisite suite, and enjoy ‘learn to’ experiences, such as a lesson in the steel drums, or how to make a perfect Bajan rum punch.

The food was delicious especially at O2 even if you don't like something they will go out of their way to make it for you to make sure you are take care of. The room was beautiful and clean and spacious. The air conditioned worked perfectly I needed a sweater in the room. The pools were clean everyday as well as all the outdoor and indoor restrooms and bathrooms. I would definitely come back this is one of my favorite all inclusive stays so far!! Thanks again for a memorable and unforgettable vacation. Read less

The restaurants are fabulous, lots to try out. Oro is fabulous, the menu and service excellent. All the bars and restaurants serve my favourite Cremant bubbles, which is wonderful, Cocktails are also fantastic. The 2 swim up bars in the pools we really enjoyed, we spent most of our time in there, lounging around. Thank you for such a lovely stay and see you all again very soon 🌴☀️ Read less

This is such a hard review to write and, as the title says, it’s a case of very mixed feelings. Taking into account the price we paid for what is advertised as a 5 star luxury hotel, plus the hotel’s description of the facilities and amenities, plus the regular O2 Facebook posts, I’m afraid our experience fell well below expectation and we were disappointed. It’s a case of over promised and under delivered. - Reception area - less than inviting appearance and doesn’t create a great first impression. - Concierge - some of the advertised services were not offered to us and others seemed to cause confusion when asked for. - Pool area - sun beds are fairly grubby and not the greatest quality compared to many other hotels of a similar standard. Don’t expect it to look like the photos. - H20 swim up pool bar - was never open. - Beach - the sun beds were a bit shabby and the beach area was untidy (nothing like the photos). Seaweed is unavoidable but it would have been nice if the beach had been cleared from time to time. - Entertainment - decent nightly entertainment but it finished around 10pm and that left little else to do. - Bar facilities - it would have been nice to have an evening bar area with comfy seating, rather than a few seats around the bar at Elements. - Wind - obviously outside of anyone’s control but it was so windy, almost all of the time, and the area between the two buildings created a significant wind tunnel. Despite the disappointment we still had a lovely time. As mentioned by many others, the staff are really lovely and they do look after you. Lots of yummy cocktails and delicious food. Oro is definitely worth a visit (or four) and, if you ask, they will serve a delicious surf and turf. Our one bedroom, ocean view, accommodation was very comfortable, very clean, and we loved the White Company toiletries. This could definitely be a luxury 5 star resort but some changes are needed. If you create an expectation for your guests, it’s important to live up to it! Read less

We give the O2 beach hotel 5 stars all the way. We have visited 5 stars hotels all over the world but this one has topped it for us. It ticked all our boxes. The hotel & grounds are beautifully kept & everywhere you look is picturesque. The food was great and plenty of choice. We are on holiday so no rush is perfect for us. The management & staff are all exceptional. Few stood out for us, management Pierre & Nicholas very professional & always had time to say hello & check we were ok.We really appreciated the time they took to ensure we had the best holiday. Beco our ambassador was fantastic & nothing was too much trouble. He really made us feel welcome. Being able to send a quick WhatsApp message & to get a quick reply was a great touch. Really easy booking restaurants & getting general information quickly. We loved the personal touches from the staff remembering our names, in particular Yvonne who made us smile. Junior on the bar was also great & made the perfect banana daiquiri. Nothing is too much trouble & this made our holiday so enjoyable. This was our most perfect holiday travelling as a couple. Evenings were relaxed & the music and ambience made it all the more enjoyable. We felt like we were treated like royalty & hope to return one day. Barbados & the 02 Beach club Read less

Treated poorly, racially profiled and discriminated against. As an American I would choose another all inclusive resort.
