My partner and I stayed at Ocean Spray for 1 week and upon arrival we were greeted at the front desk by a polite and helpful young lady. We did, however, feel that the decor/furnishing at the front desk area was a bit of a let-down as it is looked rather tired (the receptionist's chair had holes in!). However, the overall reception area is good as it is light and spacious. Management please improve the front desk area as it provides a really important first impression.

There was some discrepancy in relation to the description given on the travel agent's website in respect of the rooms and what we were actually allocated. As we were not happy we were moved to a bigger 1 bedroom apartment which accorded with what we expected to be allocated to in the first place. Management dealt with the situation correctly and so we were happy with the outcome. I do hope, however, that the advertisement of the rooms are amended to reflect the true position.

The property's location is away from all of the excitement/off the beaten track but nestled on the sea edge. We had hired a car so it was not a problem for us. It is also very close to the airport - about 15 minute drive. It is a surfer's paradise as the waves are high/rough so not ideal for swimming but it is secluded and relaxing. Free loungers are provided (some could do with updating though). We were on the ground floor so had direct access to the garden/sea which was really lovely also we were right across from the restaurant although we never actually dined there.

The apartments themselves would benefit from greater attention to detail eg light switches a bit grubby also I pulled the curtain and the pole fell down as it wasn’t secured and had no pole ends. That being said the apartments are clean (housekeeping is scheduled every other day – you can request a change of towels in between days though) and there is a good laundry service. There are also a number of dustbins around the grounds including recycling bins which proved useful. Wifi was a bit hit or miss but was stronger closer to the reception area but hey-ho at least it was free.

All issues were dealt with quickly and satisfactorily so overall we had a good experience and we would stay at Ocean Spray again!

The Beach Apartments are just okay. This was my second time and I was not impressed. The room needs some renovations. Toilet was very dirty actually and the shower was either hot or cold. Lastly the tv was very small. I guess it could make a convenient over night hotel but it's not really that good.

This is our second time at ocean spray. We love it here. The location is lovely, with wind and waves and pounding surf. Lovely ocean views, sitting and sunning areas. Nice walking path. Great sunrise. A small swim beach and cove too. Very little development in this area. A lot of Europeans stay here. Kite surfers, sun worshippers etc. yoga is offered every day at 530. Breakfast is included, but doesn't seem as tasty as on our last visit. Lunch for purchase and dinner a couple of days a week. Fish dinner was excellent and the veggies were grown in the owners garden. The rooms are basic, ac, nice bed and linens. French doors open to the sea. You can request to be closer to the sea if you want, they try to honor requests. The staff is very friendly and respectful, happy and lovely .....
Also the location is relatively close to the airport....

Great hotel for someone looking for peace and quiet. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood. If you are looking for a place to sit by the ocean and listen to the waves this is your place. If you are a surfer this is a wonderful place for you also. We enjoyed watching the kite sufers while listening to waves and feeling to cooling wind.
This is not a party hotel. If you are looking for loud music and drinking you do not want to book this hotel.
The staff at the hotel is very helpful and friendly!!!

Being only a short taxi ride from the airport (US$12) this seemed a good place to start our stay in Barbados. We stayed two nights and wish we had booked for more. This is not an expensive place and so not luxurious, but everything you need is there in the room. Good views to the Atlantic coast - good surfing not such good swimming, but a fine place to unwind after a long haul flight.
We would go back

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be ocean facing - three floors - the higher I presume give the best views
