Amazing Hotel
Reviewed 2 days ago

Just returned from our second year at Waves hotel and it was even better than we remembered.

We stayed in Ocean Front Junior Suite which was very spacious and has the most wonderful view of the Caribbean Sea. The room was tastefully furnished and kept very clean by the staff. Mini bar was stocked up daily with Rum, Gin, beer and soft drinks.

We dined at both restaurants of which the food was of a high standard with a great choice. During the day if you wanted a lighter lunch you could eat at the Deli/Café between 10am to 6pm which was wonderful. In the evenings after dinner (except on a Sunday) there was entertainment with some exceptional singers which I found thoroughly enjoyable.

We also received free spa treatments that were fantastic and a great bonus.

I loved the staff, they are exceptionally helpful and the most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure to meet and cannot fault how attentive they are to make your stay a perfect one.

Beach for me was perfect with the added bonus of free water sports in addition to the constant service where you never needed to leave your sun lounger if you did not want too.

What was most amazing is that alot of the staff remebered us from last year in which we got the most amazing welcome and some of the new staff that we met this year were just as fantastic and cannot wait to see them all again.

Cannot fault anything and cannot explain how sad I was to be leaving. Cannot wait to go back!

Return trip and this hotel just keeps getting better!

We returned nearly a week ago from another fantastic stay at this gem of a hotel. I was a little nervous as we do not often return to the same hotels (although we have stayed at Turtle Beach too, several times), and we found this hotel was much improved in several areas, particularly the food, spa and service from the staff.

It is a small boutique type hotel - the type you would rather keep to yourself, but the secret is out now and although certainly busy, it copes well with the volumes of guests. It is on an exceptionally pretty beach and there were always plenty of beds - it would be nice if these could be spread out more on the beach but accept this may not be feasible.

The food really is excellent, fresh, with very good choice and immaculate presentation - much of it photo worthy! Dining felt more 'special', with excellent attentive service. The drinks/ice cream/frozen grapes/cold towels service was always frequent - you can certainly never go thirsty here! The food is a huge draw for our teenager!

All staff were highly service orientated, well presented and went above and beyond; I simply cannot imagine better. The hotel is under strong management by the lovely and efficient Kim, who greeted us by name.

The spa has much improved and we both really enjoyed our treatments and staff made us feel pampered and spoilt. We also thought the 'wellness' theme was more embedded than previously, with excellent healthy food options and wellness juices, but plenty of other options too. We loved the Pilates on the deck and also the plentiful watersports. This time we did have to book in advance, but never had difficulty in taking out what we wanted and our son 'had a go' at water skiing - a fantastic opportunity. We love the water taxi and the opportunity to view the west coast and also enjoyed trips to Crystal Cove and Colony Club for a bit of variety.

It is impossible to tire of the views from the settee on the balcony and the deck and the evening entertainment was good and pleasant to listen to while dining.

This hotel works well for small groups and we have already recommended to many of our friends. Hopefully, we will be back soon - the formula works well for us - I struggle to imagine better!

Truly amazing

Well what can you really say

If you want 5* service all round
Perfect rooms perfect beach lovely food, your glass full always at breakfast, lunch & dinner
And the most friendly and welcoming staff you can get this is the place for you because that's what you get 24-7

you can chill on the amazing beach and not really have to move from there.
The staff are always offering drinks minus the straws ( which someone stated in a previous review was upset about that they offered straws on the beach ,
Ice cream , frozen grapes and cool face flannels,
The many different free water sports available are fantastic.
You have to pay for jet skis but that's not a problem really.
ohhh I could go on.
There is a different variety of food in both restaurants on hotel premises and across the road ( restaurant )
You also have a choice to go to a couple of the sister hotels for the day and chill and use there facilities there further down the beach which is totally free at certain hotels (check with front desk they will defo be happy to explain all ) transport by the sea taxi is all included to get you to and from your chosen location.

Someone did mention dinner attire on a previous review.
You do need to wear a polo shirt / shirt to be able to go and eat in the restaurants which I forgot to bring but a quick trip to Bridgetown costing 4 Bajan dollars 8 in total for the both of us there and back on the local boogie bus( which my wife loved ) and brought 4 for 15 Bajan dollars sorted that plus we got to have a half day trip in town . The local people are truly some of the nicest people I've met pointing you to the right locations and showing you where and when to get off.
They put some lovely evening entertainment on with local singers and bands which was great.
I had a sea view room which was beautiful and directly under the where the evening entertainment was and I can honestly say I slept like a baby every night

Waves hotel defo 5*
Staff at waves 100 * top notch
Always on hand smiling and helpful is an understatement

I will 100% be recommending this place to friends and family and without a shadow of a doubt will be back with the wife & family

Fantastic hotel

Just back from this lovely hotel,this is a very clean, friendly well sited hotel.The food is very fresh and varied and plentiful.We requested a family room which was on 2 floors internally , it was very spacious.Would recommend the sea view as the other side faces the road and it is pretty noisy when the reggae busses pass.Haggle hard on the beach, we got 20 min for 40 dollars to hire the jet ski, the buskers come around the beach touting but not in your face.You can get a quieter room across the road in the adults only area which looked lovely.
