The Ocean Beach is a fantastic place to stay. The staff, especially Harvey and Godfrey are incredibly helpful and wonderful. The rooms are amazingly beautiful. We highly recommend this resort with hesitation. Enjoy!!! Rhonda

Ocean Beach is a new property. That said, I hope it manages to maintain all of its ambience and demeanor when it becomes really really popular. And it WILL become really, really popular. It's location is great, secluded, but not really - you can walk to town from the beach. The beach is HUGE! Not the clean, pure white sand, but it's walkable and has gorgeous, rolling waves and surf. The property is well-apportioned with large rooms with great amenities. LOVE the bed with the wrap around mosquito net -- with the bedside tables INSIDE! Large, flat screen TV, nicely hidden bar/fridge and tea facilities. Large, open spacious bathroom, more than adequate built in wardrobe, wonderfully private terrace wall, within glimpse of the beach, even from the back. And the ocean is loud enough to hear all over the property. (I thought that was great!) Two great pools, one right on the ocean, the other nearby for "real" lap swimmers", and nice pool snack/bar facility that's about the nicest place on the property. Only downfall, it doesn't have internet access there. They're still working on the spa, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out. The grounds are well maintained, and will be remarkable in spring when rains come and green it up. Staff -- irreproachable! They went well above and beyond. Were always pleasant and amenable. If you want to eat late, not a problem. Want one more drink in the bar - not a problem! I was there for my birthday, and they literally locked me out of my room to fix it up with flowers and suprise me. And even gave me a delightful cake (with my name spelled correctly) for dinner that night. The setting is near-perfect, but really the staff is what makes OB five star in my book! Two things would've made the stay more perfect: internet access in the room, and a "Do Not Disturb" sign for housekeeping! Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Near the ocean is near the pool, so if want to be more tranquil, stay in the back where you can glim...

Thank you very much for your comments,
We will be having Wi-Fi internet facilities ready in every room before December 2011.
We were not able to have the all hotel covered due to poor signal quality that would have not been sufficient and strong enough to cover the entire area.
Now, with the optic fibres which are almost ready we will be able to have a better and faster internet service.
I want to thank you so much for choosing Ocean Beach Resort for your holidays and I hope to see you soon again.
Kind regards,
Roberto Marini

Excellent resort if you want to relax, the place is very private and secluded, seemingly quiet and peaceful. The resort is right in front of the beach which offers you amazing views and experience of relaxation, for an instant you feel alone in the world. Each room has been designed and decorated with taste and sense of details, you can also enjoy your own private balcony or relax by the pool in seafront which has an unique design that makes you feel in a beach. The restaurant was also a very good surprise, offering a four course gastronomic menu with local flavors mixed with Italian influences. If you are coming from a safari and want to keep the wild and cosy experience or simply if you want to experience a real luxury african holiday, this is a perfect gateway before going back to the city!!!
