Historical Traveller Reviews of One & Only Ocean Club Hotel
What a great place for a Honeymoon!from A TripAdvisor Member
Our stay was fantastic. This resort is quiet and relaxing. We stayed at The Royal Towers of Atlantis also for a couple nights and found it fun, but crowded. It was hard to get a chair. At Ocean Club, all the staff remembers your name and other information. They are too friendly. We dined there almost every night and found that the quality of the food is OUTSTANDING! Yes, it is expensive, but if you can't afford it, than you probably shouldn't be at the resort. It truly is a beautiful place and we look forward to returning.

We cannot praise the staff highly enough and accomodation was first class. Would certainly recommend it.
If you are looking for a quality holiday away from it all, then this is the place.

If you can afford the Ocean Club, you can afford to share the wealth.
What are these negative reviewers doing, not “sweating dollars” at a resort like the Ocean Club? If you are staying at a 5 star resort such as this, please remember to tip the staff. The way to handle it is to tip big on arrival, then ease off a bit. If you think you are going to receive proper service not doing so, then I would suggest you stay a few star levels down. It’s the way it works at luxury properties, regardless of the pre-included gratuities.
We were offered our sunset drinks, our strawberries, our ice… etc. If we were not in our room our butler left us a message on our voice mail asking when we would like them delivered. All of our phone calls were legit on the bill. One time we had to say no to a roaming beach vendor, and he promptly walked away. The spa was amazing, the workout room was well staffed and large, the grounds were perfectly landscaped.
We took the free Escalade to the casino. To the person who looks down upon a casino filled with tacky, smoky, icky neuvo and touring people, etc. what casino with nickel slots and obnoxious glass sculpture is not? If you want a very classy casino, what are you doing hanging out at a hotel with a water slide? This is what made our vacation fun. We went to the bustling loud smoky casino, had some laughs, and came back to our pristine little oasis. The dichotomy was energizing.
Our suite was awesome. Not only was the furniture in clean condition, there were no dust bunnies. The stone used throughout the baths was lovely. The hardwood floors were a bit slippery, so we had to walk with bare feet! No complaints at all. The sheets were always new with not a wrinkle, the towels were plentiful. The slippers were not removed, but waiting by the bed. Our floors were not only vacuumed daily, but mopped daily as well.
The employees of this resort were among the most intelligent and personable I have ever experienced. Their dry sense of humor, making eye contact when listening, recognizing us by name, remembering where we went the day before and discussing… the only word is wow! We stay at resorts on this level all over the world. There must be something right in the training and management at the Ocean Club.
I could go on and on about Dune, the Balinese spa, the best beach staff ever, but, this is really really long already. In a nut shell? GO! GO AS FAST AS YOU CAN!
A wonderful relaxing get away from reality!from A TripAdvisor Member

Excellent experience and 007 to boot!from A TripAdvisor Member
Anyway, the Ocean Club met most of our expectations; the bell boys, butlers, conceirge and Front desk were pleasant and efficient. When we arrived we were upgraded to a ocean view room in the Hartford wing, which was beautiful and more than adequate for both of us. We had breakfast every morning overlooking the Ocean. I don't believe the extra cost for the Crescent wing is justified, although the rooms are probably bigger and have nicer furnishings. The Dune restaurant was amazing and the Poolside Cafe was very good. I would have to say the our dinning experience at the Courtyard Terrace was awful. The food was not very good and it in no way justified the price that they charge. We sent our food back and ended up eating at Dune again. (Be prepared to pay extremely high prices for wine or drinks, but then again it is the islands). Other highpoints: beautiful pool, CDs & headsets at the pool, beautiful gardens, DVD player in room, Digital Radio, great tennis courts, free yoga twice daily and chocolate covered strawberries & champagne every night. Don't expect super fast service and don't rent a car.
All-in-all it was a great trip, but for other people traveling to the Ocean Club, remember that locations that are as nice as the Ocean Club command high prices so that they can maintain the grounds and hire the best help. I believe that, although on the expensive side, Ocean Club delivers a very beautiful and relaxing experience.
