One&Only Ocean Club has a world renowned reputation for offering first class luxury alongside superb facilities and service that is second to none, making it the perfect destination for those seeking both relaxation and entertainment.

Today, it retains its feel of a grand colonial manor where guests can enjoy the beautifully manicured gardens, inspired by the grandeur of Versailles set against the fabulous backdrop of the pristine beaches of Paradise Island.
Notwithstanding the beautiful beaches, the resort has a fabulous array of facilities on offer. For those who love the water, there is a choice of swimming pools - including one for guests over 14 years and another with a waterfall and aqua toys especially for families.

When to go
Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9 hours sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.
