Ocean Reef Yacht Club & Resort3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I actually visited June 2016. Beautiful location and friendly and helpful staff. Two saltwater pools (one with a swim up bar) and town home style accommodations are available. I'm sure the inclusive resorts in Freeport are nice, but this place felt so welcoming and I feel like we got to see so much more of the island and learn about its history. There are also extremely friendly and adorable cats that roam the property!
Ocean Reef was a great place to stay for our week in Grand Bahama! We were impressed with the overall cleanliness and organization of the resort, especially less than a year after the hurricane. The on-site restaurant, Ocean Blue, was good and reasonably priced, and the staff at Ocean Reef were almost universally excellent. The location is pretty close to the Lucaya marketplace and to downtown Freeport, if you have a rental car. I recommend renting a car on-site, as their rates were good and the vehicle we got was pretty good for our needs. I actually liked the location better than the resorts located directly on the beach, as it was a bit quieter and more relaxing, and I think we got more value for our vacation budget there, too.
This place is the sister to Sea Breeze Vacation Villas which we stayed at We went through the presentation and due to the couple we were traveling with becoming members we had access to the amenities of both. Our new friend Kristi who was the rep we went through the presentation with spent the rest of the week we were there personally showing us the sites of the island and making sure we got all the percs with the membership. The presentation manager Ed made sure we got everything we needed. We recieved transportation pretty where anywhere we needed to go and our drivers Sonjay and jermaine were very pleasant and informative as to where to get good local food etc.. as we rode with them. Although our rooms werent actually here we used the pool and the restaurant which had much better prices and a little better selection of foods than Madkaps at Seabreeze but we enjoyed the small feel at Sea Breeze and the more personalized attention we received. The michael jackson show and the cultural show presented at the resort were both great shows. We highly recommend Ocean reef and will definitly return. Once again thanks to Kristi for going way beyond customer service and we look forward to seeing her our next trip.
Accommodations were second to none would highly recommend to friends and family. Rooms were clean, food was delicious at the onsite restaurant. Even though the property is not located on the beach, there is a beach very close by. They had daily activities for the guests inc kids. Staff was very attentive and accommodating. Used an offisite taxi driver Hayward Forbes and he was the best ...we plan to visit again in the future!!
Very nice resort near Lucaya on Grand Bahama island. Our townhouse was very clean and the view was amazing! We spent days recharging ourselves by reading, sitting on the patio drinking wine, had friends over for a small party, drank wine, drank beer, drank rum & cokes....oh wait about the resort...LOL....the resort offered two pools, a restaurant and other nice amenities. Really enjoyed our stay!!
This wasn't our first choice but we booked late and took a deal to stay at Ocean Reef for a couple of days. Very pleasant and helpful staff, this is a gated club and feels very safe. It's connected to the ocean via one of the inland waterways with boats moored along the tow path around the property. First impressions were of a tired building (once part of the Marriott group) but the two bedroom apartment we stayed in was spacious, clean and very well appointed with great wifi. It had a fully equipped modern kitchen for self caterers. The pool, where you can get drinks directly from the bar is next to the boats and a very pleasant place to relax for an hour or two. Leaving the Club by road you will need a car (or bikes if you fancy, as it's extremely flat). It's only a few minutes drive to most places on the Island but nothing is walkable in the heat. Port Lucaya is less than 5 minutes away as is downtown Freeport. We prefer the beach and sea views so for us this was only suitable for a couple of days but great value nonetheless.
First time to Freeport and this resort didn't make my stay any better. Understanding that the island is still trying to recover from Matthew, but the service of this resort is affected by management or the lack of. No one has any answers to simple questions not even "Managers" 😒. If you want a real getaway and want to do absolutely nothing then this is the place. The staff are fine, but the amenities, activities, accommodations are lacking. You pay $40 for weekly transportation as scheduled to visit Port Lacaya, the fish fry, and Sea Breeze and Sri have to find your way to the Port or airport at an additional cost. Just stupid! If you plan to drink happy hour is from 4 to 6pm and that's lacking. Don't come here to indulge in adult beverages. Our party included kids and they drank the he'll out of the strawberry daiquiris. However they have 2 different menus with 2 different prices and the restaurant "Manager" had the nerves to get an attitude when questioned about it. Damn get a black sharper and strike the wrong price out don't be annoyed if your customer ask a question. Sea breeze beach experience was a bust. We waited over an hour for our water experience and over 30 minutes for a chair and umbrella. I'm a frequent traveller but this was not one for the books. Don't expect much here.
The resort was really nice. It was very spacious and clean. There were lots of amenities to choose from. I think the resort should have transportation to carry you to the places you want to visit. No just selected ones picked out by the resort. Especially if we are paying for the transportation.
The resort is certainly dated and weathered. However, we did see construction at work and new landscaping being put in. Lorraine was helpful and restaurant food and drinks are good. Lorraine was helpful and especially enjoyed meeting Brian Moss with White Cloud Water tours. He provided us a nice evening boat ride. Wine and cheese on board was a nice touch. Highly recommend his tour.
We chose this place from a list of resorts because we scored it by sitting through a sales presentation with Bluegreen Vacations. Neither my husband or I had been to the Bahamas before so we really didn't know what to expect. Boy we're we pleasantly surprised! Everyone at the resort was super friendly and helpful with planning our week out. We had a one bedroom with a jacuzzi tub that was very spacious and clean! There was lots of interactive events on site each day. The grill and bar were excellent even though I don't eat seafood! There is a dominos that will deliver too. We made some lifelong friends on this trip and we are booked to go back in July of this year with our son and his girlfriend and another couple. We highly recommend this place!
