One Ocean Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Atlantic Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Had the pleasure of staying at the One Ocean while attending a reunion. I had not been there since it was converted from the Sea Turtle. The hotel is very pretty. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The room is very comfortable. The bathroom in your hotel room very small. Do not expect to have more than one person in there at a time. Other than that the place is great.

Nice hotel in a great location. Newly renovated, but pricey. My only complaint is the bathrooms. You literally cannot move in them. You have to squeeze between the toilet and the sink to open and close the door. For the prices they are charging, the size of the bathrooms is absurd. I was told all of the bathrooms are the same size.
If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, it's a great place. Lots of restaurants and shops within a block or two.

Room Tip: Great views if you get a room on an upper floor.

Dear Blueorlando8, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at One Ocean Resort & Spa. We are glad you enjoyed your time in Atlantic Beach and took advantage of the restaurants and shopping in the area. We apologize you were disappointed with the size of the bathrooms. The property's transformation from the Sea Turtle Inn in 2008 required some of the original footprint of the hotel remain the same, including the bathroom size. We were able to update the rooms and common areas, while still keeping the unique aspects of the property. We hope to have you to the resort again soon.

I've stayed at some of the best hotels in the country, including the Ritz Carlton, Four Season, W Hotels and more. This hotel is beautifully decorated. The service was top notch! I loved having coffee brought to my room and snacks/drinks at no extra charge. The food served poolside was outstanding! And we loved the fact that the hotel, while on the beach, is nestled into a small town so everything you need is right there walking distance! We had two amazing seafood dinners at places within a block of the hotel.

Room Tip: Pay the extra money to get a balcony overlooking the pool and beach.

I spent three days in Jacksonville, Fl. We stayed at One Ocean and it was top notch. Service was first class. Our suite was clean and stocked everyday with towels and snacks. The view from the balcony of the beach and pool was beautiful. Plenty of places close enough to walk to for eating, drinking and shopping.

My 20 year class reunion was held here just recently and the cost was $99 per person, not a big deal, but for $198 for my wife and I, I expected a good evening. But they started off with bad service. We had the option of cheaper parking around the hotel or using the valet service that the hotel provides. Not being familiar with the area, I decided to simply pay the extra money and have them park our car. But when we pulled up to the entrance, the gentleman standing there asked if we were here for the reunion, I said yes and he said they didn't have any more parking for us. He said he was sorry and proceeded to tell me that the next two parking lots were full and good luck finding a space somewhere in the general area. Now recall, we made our reservations at least a month before and we already paid $198 and valet was extra but a cost I was willing to pay. BUT, for some reason, One Ocean didn't feel I was an important enough customer to serve. What made this more upsetting was the fact it was Saturday night, dinner time and I was not familiar where a good place to park (and not get towed) would be. After about 10-15 minutes of driving around, my wife and I finally found a place to park and hopefully not get towed, so we were able to join the reunion. The food wasn't particularly good and wasn't even served, it was a little light on the serving size and it was an all cash bar, you got water if you didn't want to pay. We didn't even get sweet tea for our $198!!! To be fair the desserts were good. I would not recommend this place to someone else. I have no issue with charging $198 for a couple, but you should actually care about your customers' experience if you do charge that much. It was a Walmart experience for a Nordstroms' price.
