From being greeted with champagne to our final dinner on the patio, we were pampered, relaxed, and refreshed. We stayed at Ocean Z for a quick 4-night weekend. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. We loved the open-air shower and the stocked mini-fridge. The staff was friendly and unbelievably accommodating -- someone was always available to give us a quick lift to the beach or come pick us up! We could also grab a few beach chairs and walk to a smaller beach close by. Some days it was hard to decide -- beach or pool? The pool area is quiet and serene with plenty of seating. I wish I could start everyday enjoying breakfast while looking out at the ocean. All in all, it was a perfect getaway.
We travel alot and stay in very nice resorts but decided to try something different this time. Ocean Z really spoiles us and has changed our prospective on accommodations whwn traveling. Our stay was so personalized and special and with only 13 rooms, very private. It was like am oasis from the hustle and bustle. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The bathroom shower is outdoors and adds such a romantic vibe and great for pics. The staff is amazing and truly provide hospitality that spoils you rotten. Leoncita and Maria were the absolute best!!!!! They truly worked together to make sure we had reservations, excursions, taxis, and a table set every morning for breakfast. We got a chance to met the owner Eva so that was exciting and her son. Im not sure if he was working or there to relax with his family but he helped several times and was SUPER nice! If you are looking for a personal experience, Ocean Z is the place. It's in a great location, the restaurant hands down was the best food we had the whole week. Seasoned to perfection! Thus hotel is truly one of a kind.…
My wife and I just completed a 7 night stay at the Ocean Z Boutique Hotel and Restaurant. How often do you feel like you’ve made lifelong friends with the staff of your hotel after a week’s stay? At the Ocean Z, you will! Thanks to Eva, Liancita, Maria and the rest of the staff for satisfying all requests with a smile and extending hospitality beyond any expectations. Breakfast, included with your room, is homemade, delicious, and made exactly as you want it. Dinner at their restaurant is a pure culinary delight from Sophie their hostess, to Eva, the owner, who makes everyone feel like they are eating in her personal dining room. The Paella at dinner was fabulous as was the Chef’s Steak Special! The hotel is very close to the Arashi Beach, providing chairs and a cooler for the beach. The room accommodations are wonderful, with all the rooms surrounding a magnificent pool area. We can’t wait to return and will be back……
Pristine, a delightful experience. The room had a beautiful view, first class amenities! Treated as royalty very friendly staff. The only boutique hotel I will ever stay in Aruba!!! Looking forward to my return.
A real boutique hotel personalized attention. Beautiful luxurious rooms with ocean views. We stayed in the master king suite with a semi private pool. Simply outstanding. This is my third time here, and for sure will come back. Thank you all for the best vacation ever!
My wife and I stayed at Ocean Z in the beginning of December 2022. I had very high expectations based on the reviews I saw beforehand, and Ocean Z did not disappoint. Everything about our stay in this hotel was true perfection. The level of customer service we experienced at Ocean Z was unmatched from any hotel I've ever stayed in before. The breakfast included with our stay was insanely delicious and freshly made every morning. I loved that they offered beach chairs and coolers when needed, because we definitely took advantage of that. The room was clean and beautiful, and housekeeping did a great job cleaning the room everyday. We even tried out the restaurant one night and everything was very good, plus it was nice and convenient to have a high end restaurant right downstairs. We stayed in the king suite that includes the semi private pool, and that was my absolute favorite part of our stay. The pool faces the ocean so you can watch waves crashing while you swim, as well as the sunset every night. It was so incredibly nice to be able to grab a drink from the bar downstairs and bring it back up to enjoy in our private pool while watching the sunset. The pool was also very well kept and clean, which we greatly appreciated since not all hotels maintain their pools as well as Ocean Z did. This was by far the most romantic vacation my wife and I have ever taken, and Ocean Z definitely played a nice part in that. We are hoping to go back again in the near future. Highly recommended, especially for couples.…
We just returned home from Aruba Although we have been there many times, this was ab extra special trip because of the fabulous boutique hotel, Ocean Z. From the minute you arrive and are greeted by the manager, Leoncita, you immediately feel that you are being welcomed into a warm home not hotel. The service is impeccable especially due to Maria who is attentive to your every need. The rooms are immaculate, the food exquisite all under the supervision and watch eye of Eva, the owner who resides on the premises. We enjoyed the stay so much have already booked our return in 2023.
The service was prompt, if slightly curt. The owner was circulating, which was nice. It’s located on a quiet stretch of oceanfront north of Palm Beach. Food was good. The setting is pretty but unfortunately we sat at the front patio and had the noise and smell of cabs delivering patrons. A loud group indoors was made more quiet when they closed the doors. For the distance from the hotel and the noise, and some feeling we were not really appreciated as patrons, we wouldn’t likely go back. We did have friends who had a much more positive experience because they were seated around the pool so perhaps that would have made the difference. I would not write it off since it offers a nice change from many other restaurants.
Beautiful boutique hotel with some very unique rooms. We had the King Bed suite with the fabulous spa bathroom (including a very modern/private outdoor glassed shower…..very cool). All the staff were friendly and helpful. Leoncita the house manager is always there to help with any requests and she certainly takes customer service very seriously. Eva the owner is also on hand everyday to greet guests at dinner. Breakfast in the mornings with server Maria was a treat and she was always smiling !! If you want something different than staying at one of the huge Palm Beach hotels, then this place is for you !!
I created an account just to write this review. My family and I have been going to Aruba for the past 8 years - we love it. The island has some of the best food, but after a while, the options become stale. Ocean Z was recommended by our hotel concierge and was a refreshing change. Eva and her team were attentive, the food was incredible and the entertainment was lively (go on Monday's & Wednesday's to see Sasha - she's awesome). My Mom and I love to dance and we were dancing in our seats throughout the meal. When you looked around, others were doing the same. Thank you, Eva! We can't wait to get back to the island and visit again soon.
