Our weekend at The Ocean House was truly spectacular! From the second we walked in, we could tell the service was unlike any other hotel we had been to. We were kindly welcomed at reception with champagne (as we were celebrating our engagement) and Cole generously escorted us up to our room and gave us some information about the property. Every touch and detail was perfect, including the pillow on the bed with my initials! It felt like a custom experience just for us. Even though we arrived late, Kyle and Cole made sure we were all set up with drinks and food in the Bistro. The next day, we had a wonderful experience at the Oh! Spa - truly relaxing environment with fabulous technicians who performed our massages. We also had an amazing dining experience at Seasons. Although she was busy, we felt like we were Mary's only table in the room! We finished our visit with the jazz brunch which was overly abundant with delicious food and a perfect way to cap off the weekend. Everything at The Ocean House is truly top notch! The staff thinks of literally EVERYTHING and you are so well taken care of throughout your stay. Highly recommend and cannot wait to return in the warmer months! Thanks Cole, Kyle, Mary, Rhonda and all who made our stay phenomenal!

We stumbled upon this place and planned to go in December..with work and life getting in the way we moved our trip to March. Pulling up the sheer beauty and size of this property left us in awe. It is exquisite, and that is just from the March..even when the grass is dead. Stepping inside it was breathtaking; every detail covered gorgeously by their decorator. Front of the house service was prompt, professional and sweet. We were escorted to our rooms by Elise who was very informative and nice. Our room was booked as a Club king but when we arrived they let us know they upgraded us to a much larger suite. That was pretty great, although I believe we would've had a view of the water in our original room, it was a nice upgrade that we certainly appreciated. The room was wonderful; in pristine condition (beside from a painting blanket left behind from the renovation) and the details will be something we remember and talk about for some time; the delicious macaroons, the monogram pillow, the little things they provided to make our stay as wonderful as it could be. It felt like a little home for a few days. We ordered a bottle of champagne from our floor valet and were surprised and very grateful when he told us it was going to be complimentary; we did not expect that. Since it was cold weather, we looked forward to taking advantage of a few of the planned activities the resort offered to us on their itinerary. When we went to go do those things, we came to find out (on our own) those were not available and that was disappointing. The only complaint we had. We let them know how we felt and they definitely tried to make it up to us. Things happen. We would've wished the communication to us, and even to the other staff members would have been better, but this still wouldn't stop us from coming back! Some people who made our trip special were PJ and Rob. PJ: the in house sommelier was incredible; we sat for two of his tastings and they were a ton of fun and we learned a lot. We could not express enough how professional, informative, and friendly he was. He definitely made our trip one for the books. Rob, our bartender for most of our stay was great; he quickly got to know us and his service was top notch. He made some incredible drinks, and in our opinion made our stay that much greater. We are already booking our next stay for the warmer weather and cannot wait to experience this wonderful resort in a new way during the summer. Thank you to all who helped make our weekend one to remember forever.

Way overpriced for offseason, restaurant made my wife and I sick, phone ringing in next room kept us awake at night, fell short of our high expectations. We have stayed at many other properties in this price range that are much better.

One word for our experience at the Ocean House Rhode Island: Perfection. Family members from all parts of the country gathered for an incredible weekend long 50th Birthday Party. Everyone shared rave reviews on their rooms, the service, and the abundant amenities within the resort. Music filled the lobby Sunday morning, the common areas were comfortably appointed and our every need was met by a truly accommodating staff. Our Catering Event was held Saturday night in the gorgeous Seaside Ballroom and adjoining Terrace. I cannot say enough about Ms. Erin Neagle, our lovely event captain, the banquet team, and the culinary masters. They made each portion of our event seamless and the food was beyond delicious. I have stayed at many a beautiful resort, but while they are all incredible places, not all leave you longing to return. .....The Ocean House Rhode Island DOES. We are already checking to calendars to start planning another stay in this New England paradise! It is a "not to miss" experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the memories we will cherish always.

Beautiful location, impeccable service, upscale in every way. We had a view of Taylor Swift's estate and the wide blue ocean, right outside our hotel window. The private beach is perfectly located and well appointed for your every need. There is nothing the staff would withhold from any guest here, as long as you are able to pay. If you are looking to escape for a weekend to a lavish, posh setting, this is the place to do it. Be prepared to lay out some serious money, though. Nothing is included, (unless you count the complimentary malted milk balls, which were delicious...) You will need to pay for all of your meals and any additional services, such as the spa. This is not an all-inclusive resort. Nonetheless, it is a once-in-a-lifetime destination and an experience that you will never forget.
