Fantastic hotel absolutely right on a typical Caribbean beach. Bedrooms, lobby, restaurant and bar topnotch. Food fantastic and free watersports available for all guests. But what really makes it are the staff, especially the lovely ladles in the restaurant and great barmen. Definitely the friendliest hotel staff ever. Love it.

Just back from out holiday and it was amazing, staff are fantastic couldn’t do enough for you. General manager making effort to say hi to everyone. I was impressed with everything, only small issue would be the WiFi needs a little boost. Lady in spa called Debbie, she was just lovely.
Really sad to be leaving, we have travelled around a good bit and I got to say it was our best holiday. We will be back ✋

Celebratory holiday

This was our first visit to Barbados and chose this hotel due to location and the fact that it was relatively small. On our arrival we were greeted by welcoming staff and offered rum punch, which was very nice! Check in was quick and we were shown to our room. The hotel is lovely. The rooms are spacious and spotless. Our room overlooked the road and we had no balcony, which at first was a bit dissappointing, but this wasnt a problem as there was very little road noise. All the areas of the hotel were clean and well looked after. The small pool on the beach side was a bit dull and always cold, with concrete walls surrounding it. The larger pool on the other side of the road was a much nicer area, with a coverd whirlpool area. There were limited sun beds around both pools, where towels were put on the best positioned beds very early. Even though the hotel has a 30 minute rule for saving sunbeds, we didn't see any towels being removed. The same thing happens on the beach. We saw people put towels on 4 beds, even though there was only 2 of them and then go off on a two hour boat trip. Needless to say their towels were still there when they returned. The food in the restaurants is very nice but there's not a lot of choice, especially if you are a fussy eater. We had a couple of issues with reception. One was a golf trip booked through the hotel, which included transport to and from the course. We were told we would need to make our own way there by taxi (at our own expense of 35 us dollers) as there wasn't enough room on the mini bus for our party of 4, although we were told we could return to the hotel on the mini bus. At the end of golf, we asked the receptionist what time the mini bus would be picking us up, we were told we couldn't go on it as we didn't arrive on it. After numerous phone conversations with various staff at the hotel, we were told we had to make our own way back at a further cost of another 35 us dollers. We were not happy with the situation but had no choice but to use another taxi. We then tried to book treatments at the spa through the hotel reception, as there was no one at the spa and was told we would get confirmation by the next morning by a message being left in our room or at reception. When nothing appeared in the room, we asked at reception, which was now manned by a different person. We were told there was no record of an enquiry. When we went to the spa we were told there were no appointments, but after explaining what had happened the lady said she would speak to her boss, and managed to get our treatments booked for the next evening. This is beautiful hotel in a lovely setting and we really enjoyed our visit.

Holiday in Paradise

Just back from a wonderful 10 day fantastic holiday in Barbados with our friends. We stayed at the
beautifully appointed ‘Waves’ Beach Hotel’ on an all inclusive basis. Which really worked for us, as dining
out in Barbados can be expensive. The quality of food and choice was exceptional, from breakfast
to evening meal in the main restaurant. There was also an Asian Fusion restaurant at our disposal,
which again, the food and service was second to none.
Along with above, if you just wanted a snack for lunch there is a coffee shop serving the obvious and a menu consisting of such likes as Club Sandwich, Caesar Salad, Paninis and Cakes...
We stayed in a Delux Ocean Room looking directly out to sea. Which was fully equipped with a/c, tv, hairdryer,
iron and beautifully furnished.
The hotel is located 25 mins from Bridgetown and 15 mins from Holetown on a Rege bus route for a dollar.
Last but not least are the staff, who never stopped smiling and making sure you were enjoying your holiday.
I would actually go as far as saying, collectively the best staff in any hotel I have ever stayed in...
If you can’t enjoy your well earned break here, don’t go to Barbados again...

My husband and I stayed at Waves for 10 nights. From the moment we arrived we were impressed. The hotel is modern, so clean and the staff are so friendly. I don’t think I have ever stayed in such a friendly hotel! Both staff and guests were lovely.
The hotel has around 70 rooms so is a smaller resort to some of the other Elegant hotels. Gave it a more intimate feel.
We had a pool view room on the spa side.
Lovely clean rooms. One thing I would say is that the fridge should really be stocked, even if just with soft drinks.

The food at both restaurants was lovely. Loved my morning omelette and lunches usually we are at the coffee shop were you can get salads, wraps and cakes.
Evening meals were great. Like the fact that it was only a buffet once a week and then it was all made to order .
Great quality food.

The water sports on offer were fab and even some motorised ones also included.

Overall a fabulous experience and would recommend. We would return to Barbados and Waves in the future as such a wonderful island and hotel.
