One Ocean suckedfrom slim8274
Nice placefrom justsomeone
OK but not great for moneyfrom alhearn
Staff was polite in a cold business kind of way, but not especially personable. Staff was slow to address requests. Since there are no ice machines, the staff must be called when needed. There were no telephone books in the room, no list of restaurants nearby. They want you to call them for everything.
Valet parking appeared to be mandatory. They never mentioned the self-park lot next door. Parking is $15/day.
Elevators to rooms and pool are strangely located only on second floor, up an awkward flight of marble stairs. It was a hard climb after a day of walking and sightseeing.
As a "resort", One Ocen is terribly lacking. Other than the spa, a rather small swimming pool and deck, and public beach access, there's not much "resort" to it. The property is very small.
Fortunately, the hotel is located in Atlantic Beach/Neptune Beach which is a wonderful little area of shops, restaurants, bars, and lots of interesting people -- all just outside the hotel doors.
Overall, One Ocean is a very good but not great hotel, and is very lacking as a resort. It is a bit overpriced for what you get. Although our experience was generally positive, next time to Jacksonville, we'll stick with a hotel that is a better value for our money.
Already planning to go backfrom jcokin1
The staff were extremely friendly and the rooms were exquisite.
They provided top of the line amenities; large flat panel TV, an alarm clock that hooks up to you iPOD, refrigerator, etc. The showers are full of H20 Spa products (this is some expensive stuff). The view from the beach could not be beat! The food from the restaurant was 5 stars.
Highly recommend the spa and the top of the line massages that they provide.
All and all I am already planning to visit my friend in Florida again and will be staying at the One Ocean Hotel and Spa.
Great Property, average peoplefrom RetiredCouple2
Nice place Great location Spa NEEDS HELP!from iLike2Go2NicePlaces
I can't figure out what happened with the spa!!!! It's like someone said -- oh wait! we need a spa here too! TERRIBLE SET UP!!! Although the massage was good (80 minute couples) everything else wasn't. It's too bad too. The massage room was oceanside, floor to ceiling windows and NO CURTAINS -- nothing to block out the sun. The rooms need to be darker and REDONE! And yes although they're tinted windows people can see you from the pool if you walk up by the windows (same in the "waiting area"). Very "cold" feeling rooms - if I remember correctly -- all white with pedicure equipment shoved to the corner. The Spa was obviously not thought out well AT ALL. This is what needs the most help. We waited about 5 minutes before anyone came to the desk to check us in. The woman's locker room was not open yet, so we had to wait for the "all clear" before we could both go into change, same after the massage. I was left with the whole "NEXT!" syndrome -- crank 'em in crank 'em out attitude. Hopefully they can get THESE problems fixed, but I can't see them making the Spa feel like more like a peaceful spa that one would expect.
Amazing Hotelfrom lareyna29
A wonderful, charming South Beach-like hotel!from staynshape
Based, on my skepetism to stay here based on the prior reviews, I planned a spa visit to Ritz Carleton Amelia Island to ensure a day of pamering for my mother. However, on the day of our arrival, the spa at One Ocean opened and therefore, I cancelled the Ritz. Happily, my mother was treated like a queen as all treatments we requested were available, (but not all services were offered yet).
In response to the reviews about the complaints of others- i.e. unaccessable sunlight at the pool after 2:30 and two small elevators- only so much can be done with an existing structure. So, if small elevators and bathrooms are an issue and you wish to fry your skin from sunrise to sunset, stay elsewhere. Incidently, food service and drinks were available at the pool :) as well as a decent workout facility- including freeweights, eliptical and treadmills.
One should not pass-up the fabulous restaurant of One Ocean, but many great restaurants and stores within walking distance as well.
It is a lovely boutique hotel that is quaint and not overly resort-like affording beauty ambiance, great attentive staff who are eager to please in every possible way.
It had Pros and Consfrom Fulloffaithtina
We go in and it took us a few minutes to get checked in the guy at the front desk liked to pretend like he was listneing and going to do everything in the world for your stay but we find out later on he actually almost cost us our dinner reservations and spa treatments, the door man took our stuff to our room for us , and explained everything for us how you do get unlimitted drinks that you dont have to pay for in your mini fridge and if you want coffe or ice or anything just page the customer service... that was nice.
We leave for dinner(pay vallet and tip them to get car and come back) we actually went to a great bbq place out of florida called Sonnys if you ever get the chance to eat there DO! itss amazing!Come back and tip the guy to take our car and ask the front desk about our reservations to make sure and the guy acted like he was on top of things and then we went upstairs and called downstairs to get some cokes and to check on our spa treatments that the front desk was supposed to have and GUESS WHAT the guy diddnt do anything so the spa was supposed to call us and they didnt, and they NEVER brought us our cokes that they offer... They offer alot of promises but deffiantly dont follow through.
As for the room it was great! small but nice, decorations were great, we got a ocean front king bed but the window doesnt open so its just a view.... bathroom was SOOOO SMALL but decorated nice shower was so nice they have a double headed shower just nno tub at all.
found out the next morning when we came down for our spa treatments they hadnt been arranged and it almost cost us our spa treatments? but the lady at the desk insisted that she will get it taken care of and we have a treatment at 3 well we come at 3 and she didnt get what she was suposed to taken care of but we ended up getting the treatment anyways.. after waisting half our day when we already had plans for the day...
While waiting on the spa we went down by the pool, that was really nice they had canopys and plenty of chairs and things to lay out on they brought us fruit no charge always nice, and you could order food and drinks if youd like!
beach is walking distance always nice, we left and came back after eating lunch for our WONDERFUL SPA TREATMENTS! they are over priced but it was very nice none the less!
Checked on our reservations for dinner since they had failed to do everything else that we asked for.. and sure enough we had NO reservations and the resturant suppos couldnt hold anyone else for dinner but the lady did get it worked out and they got us in for dinner thank goodness. Dinner was great! i had the scallops and he had some chicken the service was nice always kept us up with water...
Asked for cokes again that night and they actually did bring them to us but we had to express how mnuch they werent doing their job every other time before that to get anything done.
All in all the stay was nice, service pretends to be nice and helpful but if anything they made a nice stay stressful..
i suggest actually really ttraining them to do their job rather than pretend!
But have a great stay its worth the money!
no 5 stars in the near futurefrom kyreview4u
