We stayed at the B Ocean for 5 nights. Upon arriving we found out that we could not use the restaurants or the pool from 10am-4pm for the 1st 2 days of our stay. The front desk staff did not offer to do anything to make up for this, just kind of brushed it off that they were booked for a conference and that was the way it was. When my husband asked for some kind of compensation they offered us breakfast.
The rooms were beautiful! The view is amazing. Unfortunately we upgraded to the "Captivating King Curve" room. If you wake up early then this room would be fine. Some of these rooms are next to the elevator and the service elevator so we were woken up daily at 7am. We asked to switch after our 2nd night, but they were completely booked. I would not pay for this upgrade. Every room has an amazing view, this room is just a little bit bigger.
The pool was great. Lots of seats to choose from. Also, the food around the pool was delicious. The service at the pool wasn't great, very slow but the food made up for it. We wished the pool bar would have stayed open a little later (closed at 11), but there were plenty of great other bars right behind the hotel.
The location is perfect and the amenities were great. Try the Parrot and Blue Fish for lunch or dinner or late night drinks. There was a little corner spot nearby that served smoothies if you want a quick and inexpensive breakfast.
