This hotel is quiet, as we prefer, with a great pool, big clean rooms, Italian villa decor, hammock in garden, great beach for sunsets. You need transport, as it’s isolated on foot, but you can walk to Plantation Grill to eat and the staff explained how to take busses which operate till 6:30 - which we did. Breakfast is on a beautiful balcony - but is expensive for processed food pancakes. The breakfast could be better. However everything is expensive in Nassau. The shower takes time to heat up. The staff is helpful and friendly. I’d go back!

My wife and I just completed our 3rd stay at Ocean West and had another amazing experience. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the view is always amazing. We love the privacy without the crowds, yet convenient to the airport and restaurants. Private transportation is readily available right on site, which is very convenient. Highest compliment...we'll be back!

Staff at this hotel were wonderful. We had a lot of complications on our trip — delayed flights, lost luggage, illness — and the staff were really supportive, kind, and professional throughout, and helped make our stay enjoyable despite the challenges. Setting is also very well maintained and beautiful. Highly recommend for a quiet getaway

My son and I just got back from staying at The Ocean West and all I have to say is that the staff are above and beyond amazing!! The manager had the best recommendations for where to go, the best advice, and was extremely knowledgeable. The hotel staff drives you to wherever you want to go and our favorite driver “Carlton” aka W was the coolest chick-a-tarian ever. Someday he’s going to be a famous comedian. I would like to say that we were the coolest guests they ever had and I know they will miss us very much. The hotel looks like Uncle Phil’s house in Bel Air so make sure you say hi to Carlton. We give them 5 stars.

Kali, Lee and two drivers took wonderful care guiding me to book tours and getting me to various wedding events over a five day stay. I had a wonderful first trip to the Bahamas due in part to a wonderful hotel and concierges. The patio is gorgeous and where I spent each dawn and sunset. I also had an omelette each day and ate on the patio overlooking the ocean. The bed was extremely comfortable and bathrooms were nice. Would return. Highly recommend this boutique hotel!

Just read some of the (very few) negative views, and felt compelled to respond. 1. Those who felt this wonderful hotel was too expensive have almost certainly not stayed at many other Nassau-area hotels! This is actually towards the bottom of prices for almost all the hotels; you get a very tired room and lobby at several others in this price range, you have anonymity in those larger ones, little one-on-one interactions with staff, etc. Before people review, I wish they had an idea of the going rates for the specific area! Sadly, Nassau is just insanely expensive in general :( I don’t mean to be rude, but if this hotel is too expensive, maybe Nassau is not an ideal trip for you? I would also point out that most of the other hotels charge outrageous daily “resort fees” (upward of $100/day!!), whereas Ocean West does not. Add everything up, and I think you’ll find that this is the island’s best values by far — if you don’t need a constant supply of entertainment! 2. People are concerned that staff members perform more than one function?? Sheesh - I think it’s great! A 10-room hotel cannot keep a dedicated employee in each arena, so this is a great use of staff. I have probably stayed here 7-8 times, and every single time have found the staff to be the most accommodating, friendly, and professional of any lodging institute I know! 3. Someone called the furnishings “kitschy” and “tacky.” My mother was a museum curator, and I can tell you that these decorations, from the stunning European chandeliers to the preserved samplers of 19th century embroidery and the gilt furniture, are marvelous. The hotel is furnished in the style of Louis XV, which was an ostentatious display of wealth, as exemplified herein! 4. If you expect the trappings of a large resort, why on earth would you select a self-professed small, 10-room BOUTIQUE hotel? This is a superlative example of that genre. But it is not for those who need 24-hour entertainment ;) 5. The hotel is definitely an expensive taxi ride to downtown Nassau and/or Paradise Island, but it is only about 7 minutes from the airport - arguably the absolute closest of any hotel. One way or the other, you will pay for the cost of transportation for a trip from the airport to the attractions of downtown. I prefer this quiet hotel, thank you very much!

A small, but charming, hotel (only 10 rooms) with people warm and welcoming. The rooms are exceptionally clean and with views of the ocean. We came in late one night and the staff helped us by picking us up at the airport, finding us dinner (at a late hour) and ensuring we had everything we needed for our stay. They were amazine!

My sister and I had the opportunity to stay here twice this month. The staff, especially Dishann and Aldeon were super helpful, informative and attentive. The hotel is convenient to the main airport on Nassau (15 minute ride). Like another review stated, the view and setting is beautiful, but without a car, you must rely on the staff to drive you to a restaurant in the vicinity. Enjoyed the lovely pool area, complete with shady umbrellas and nice lounge chairs. 'Would definitely return.
