We loved it!

Review by Northwind1 Swindon, England, United Kingdom

We booked this after checking out the Trip Advisor reviews. Overall, it was better than I had expected. The site is beautiful and the gardens are well maintained with lots of flowering shrubs...

We saw birds, whistling frogs (don't know their specific name) and lizards. One guest did see the non-poisonous tarantula - fortunately we didn't! The rooms are quite pretty and we had a garden view room on the ground floor, which meant we could walk straight out via our veranda/patio area to the pool, which was very convenient! The air conditioning is excellent and kept our room refreshingly cool. Due to covid, the tea/coffee facilities are in reception but this was not a problem. There is also a cooled and sparkling water dispenser in reception to enable you to refill water bottles, which was an unexpected benefit. There are plenty of sun beds - some look like they could do with a bit of a clean and repair, but overall fine. We liked that the hotel had a ball and a woggle (noodle) in the pool - lots of us enjoyed using these/playing water volley ball. The two beaches are lovely and very quiet. We are generally very fussy eaters but were pleasantly surprised by the quality and flavour of the food. It was waiter/waitress service at the table which we much prefer to buffet and I think this was also due to covid. The bar do cocktails with local alcohol included in the all-inclusive price, but some of the bar staff did not know how to make them and the choice was a bit limited. However, we could not complain for the cost. Some of the staff are lovely - friendly, helpful, polite (Nick, Rossana, Tara in Reception; Debbie, Tyiana and Christian in the restaurant). Unfortunately, some of the male staff made inappropriate comments to female guests, my 17-year old daughter among them, which, as her mum, annoyed me as they were very objectifying and they did, on occasion, make her feel uncomfortable. I think the owner/proprietor should look into this. There were bits of the hotel which need a bit of updating - the shower water pressure, tiling and some paintwork but the bedding was spotless as were the towels and seating in the reception area was lovely. Cheaper to ask the lovely reception staff to arrange trips than to use the local travel reps. Overall, we had an excellent and very relaxing holiday and would definitely consider going again.

A lovely stay in Antigua

Review by lcynew

We had a wonderful time at Ocean Point. The staff were really kind and helpful. I felt like I was continually asking questions at reception but it was never a problem...

The staff in the bar and restaurant were always very attentive and the food exceeded my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed every meal.

The atmosphere at the hotel was very pleasant and relaxed and the other guests were extremely friendly. The pool was lovely and clean. We did some snorkeling off of the beaches and whilst it doesn't have the same crystal clear waters of other parts of the island, we enjoyed seeing a few tropical fish and feeling the warm water each day.

Our only small issue was that the water in the shower was not very hot. This didn't worry us as it was nice to cool off from the outside, but other visitors may take issue with this.

The other thing to be aware of is that we found that most attractions were on the southern side of the island- there isn't a whole lot to see and do in the immediate area around Ocean Point. However, getting taxis was really easy (mostly we found they were already waiting outside and if not reception will call and one will almost immediately appear) and when I enquired about car hire, the hotel said that was something they could organise if required.

Thanks for a fantastic stay!

Antiguan little gem

Review by mountainjunkie Ilkley, United Kingdom

We stayed at Ocean Point for the first week of our 15 night stay on Antigua to meet the entry requirements for USA and visit family. We never normally go all inclusive. What a treat! It was the perfect place to relax and unwind after the stresses of the last 18 months...

As we didn’t want to take any risks by leaving the resort, we spent the whole week feeling totally spoilt and cared for by the wonderful staff. The food was an absolute highlight of our stay. Though not a huge daily choice, we looked forward every day to see what was on the menu and were never disappointed! The variety and quality throughout the week was wonderful. The owner runs a tight ship, but it is obvious the staff enjoy working there. The welcome in the restaurant at every meal was warm and genuine. We loved the choice of places to spend the day- 2 small beaches, by the pool, or out on the little dock to cool down. Plenty of chairs & towels. After a week we moved on to spend our second week at a nearby , much more expensive resort which was lovely. However we missed the warmth & friendliness both from staff and other guests that we’d experienced at Ocean Point. Highly recommend for an excellent value for money adults only getaway!

Nice Time- a few issues, but overall good.

Review by StephanieF212 New York City, New York

The hotel has been around for a long time for a reason- the hotel is clean, but is in need of renovations. Overall, the hotel is clean, the staff are pleasant, and the grounds are nice. The pool is large, and there are many chairs to lounge on around it...

The food choices are very limited (prob bc of Covid), but it is good, and the waitresses are lovely- Kerri Ann and Dezy were exceptional- hard working, warm, and friendly. Nick behind the front desk was very friendly and professional, and as helpul as can be.

The issues- the first two nights the hot water was non-existent. We saw this written in other reviews, but we hoped it was a one time thing. The morning we went to talk to the front desk, we were told it was being fixed, and after that, we had plenty of hot water. Towels to use on the beach and pool were in demand. There were times that we had to wait until the laundry was done to get one. A bit annoying, but not the end of the world. There were several flying water bugs crawling on the floor by the bar, and there was a tarantula (a local called them "horse spiders"- a non poisonous tarantula). This may just be a part of Antigua- the grounds and our room were clean, and when we told Nick behind the counter about the tarantula, he scooped If you are looking for a quiet, simple place to relax, it's perfect. The Wi-Fi is spotty, but existent. it up and took it away. A coffee maker in each room, more towels, and a renovated bathroom would make it even better. All in all, we are picky New Yorkers, and we had a good time. Hopefully you will too!

Relaxing and friendly

Review by superbolton Cleckheaton, United Kingdom

When you go to the Caribbean, there is a huge range of prices. Whilst this is not cheap, it is when compared to some of the larger hotels. This review is written based on the fairly budget nature of the hotel...

Clearly, bigger hotels will be more luxurious, but for what you pay, you need to be realistic in your expectations.

Positives:

Victor and Junior on the bar. Nice guys, attentive and a few card tricks too.

Pool is nice and large (few missing tiles but pretty clean)

Food was excellent, but could have done with a few more options for desert and alternatives to chicken Caesar salad.

Rooms was clean and spacious.

Negatives:

Bar - nobody serving in the daytime, you have to go and find people to serve you. They often run out of essentials too.

Beach - Small and full of seaweed. You will need to travel to find the famous clear waters and white sands

Umbrellas - Only about 3 around the pool. Need more

Waiting Staff - Often forgotten at meal time. Felt a little neglected

Overall I enjoyed my stay. There is a local bus that goes right past the door if you don't want to pay the very high prices for trips. The hotel is a long way from anything else, so if you don't have your own car, either get the cheap bus (£1) or very expensive taxi.

Take your own Covid testing kit, they charge £70 on Antigua for the rapid flow.
