Fantastic vacation

The staff was wonderful and very friendly! The only downside was that it was vallet parking only and we weren't expecting to pay an extra $28 per night on our 3 night stay. It was also a little disappointing that room service charged a $3 delivery fee plus automatically added an 18% tip to the bill.

Beautiful Ocean Views

Great place to stay right on A1A with easy beach access and gorgeous ocean views from every room. Everything was almost perfect - there was one glitch with the pool. The area was rented out one evening so other guests could not utilize the common area. And the pool closed at sundown. There is no lifeguard, it is swim at your own risk, and as long as there is no rowdiness, hotel management should not care what time of the day I wish to swim. Not everyone wakes and lives during the daylight hours.

Relaxing Family getaway

Sonesta was a great place! The location was awesome! Pretty much cross the atreet and your on the beach! The view from the window looks like an hd tv! The staff was ok nothing to brag about. They do charge $28 plus tax for valet parking and they only have rooms with either 2 double beds or king beds. It was pretty tight for a family of 4 with 2 grown kids. They dont have roll out beds and only have pull out couches in the suites.

Awesome view from your room

A bit pricy for location but the rooms are clean and modern. Such a relaxed stay. Look forward to staying there again The pool does not have any views.

friends get together

Hotel was in transition. Ocean b was purchased by Sonestra . When we arrived all credit card information was hand written on sheets of paper as computers were down. I was uncomfortable with this. I had purchased two rooms and had my credit card numbers written on two separate sheets of paper in order to cover any extra charges. $400.00 We stayed one day in Ocean B. When sonestra took over on our second day in the hotel they did away with all the amenities ie cocktail hour and free morning coffee which we thought we would have for our stay there. While we did not care all that much about the cocktail hour it was embarrassing to go for coffee and to be told "we dont do that anymore" the rooms had no coffee pots in them! This was embarrassing for the employees and most certainly for me. I would have minimally expected Sonestra to put a note under our door to inform us of these changes. I guess this review should not be a criticism of Ocean B as much as of Sonestra who did not give a single thought ( it would seem ) to how to take over smoothly for the sake of the guests that were presently in the hotel.

great location staff was rude

While we stayed they switched from b ocean to sonesta... the day we arrived the staff was very rude. Seems like we inconvenienced them when first pulling up at valet. When we asked for 2 extra pillows they brought us one and acted put out when we told them we needed another. The next morning while showering noticed that the shower looked dirty. Was very disappointed in the customer service I received considering the days prior to staying here we stayed at a best western and payed considerable cheaper price and had more in the rooms like fridge and microwave. The ice maker on our floor didnt work nor did the soda machine. Loved the view and access ability to the beach but extremely disappointed in the manner of the staff.

B Hotel

This is the 2nd time my husband and I stayed at this resort and we had a blast both times. The view is to DIE for. We were on the 9th floor overlooking the ocean and that night there was a meteor shower....Free of charge. :) The location is great close to shops, nice restaurants, a mall and grocery stores the beach and the beach!. No need to drive anywhere. I had Hyedee wait on me on check in and out and she was very pleasant & pretty. The bell hops and valets staff quickly assisted us with any of our request. The ONLY downside I will mention but everything way exceeded this to even mention but I ordered a drink poolside and waited 10 minutes with no one else at the bar. The waitress wrung out the paper box (Pina Colada mix) with everything she had I know there must have been other additives to the drink and than I was charged $10.50. I Gave her a $20 and it took her several tries to figure out what she was to do - going in and out of a second drawer than looking and again and etc. Again this is so minute but nobody or anything is perfect. I can't wait to get to stay there again.

Polite New Yorker

Valet was aggressive and rude. Front desk unauthentic. Restaurant service was bad, food was worse. Manager was VERY nice & apologetic. Room clean but very stuffy. Room was on the fifth floor our walls were vibrating from the music on the 12th floor penthouse. Front desk made one excuse after another to not contact manager. Tacky stuffed turtles (for sale) everywhere. They should attempt "B" hospital not remorseful. Move to another hotel the next morning.
