U.S. News Review

Travelers say that One Ocean Resort Hotel & Spa goes above and beyond when it comes to customer service. Someone will be on hand to unpack for you, steam your evening wear and even shine your shoes. Valets remember your name and room number when you return from a busy day of sightseeing; the bartender in the Azurea Lounge has started mixing your favorite drink before you've even had a chance to order it. These little touches go a long way with vacationers. However, there are a few disgruntled guests that recall niggling resort fees for parking and for "snacking," too. Although the website touts that unlimited room snacks and beverages are included in the resort fee, recent guests don't appreciate the additional $25-a-day charge. And the breakfast, though tasty, costs a pretty penny as well. You'll find the One Ocean Resort Hotel & Spa along the in Atlantic Beach, about 15 miles due east of downtown Jacksonville.
