Outstanding from Check in to Check out Super Happy Friendly staff. Facilities are very nice upgraded always clean and tidy it is best as understated elegance. Casual island feel but higher end appointments seems understated. Property is located in a quiet area great for down time, but close enough to go places and do anything. Food at all restaurants is...

This hotel had been newly refurbished having been taken over by Elegant Hotels group. Check in was absolutely first class. All of the staff that worked on the front desk were very pleasant, very professional and...

I was in Barbados with my family (husband and two sons, aged 4 and 1) and while staying at a different Elegant Hotel decided to enjoy Waves for the day. It was clear that this hotel was a cut above the others (we visited a few) and this was all down to the wonderful reception we received from not one...

We stayed at Waves over the Easter Holidays, April 2017. Being a family of six, it's not always easy to find somewhere that keeps us adults happy, and keeps 4 kids aged 10-15 occupied! Waves was perfect for us as there was something for everyone. We liked that the beach was small enough to keep an eye on the children...

From start to finish a great hotel. Doesn't look good when you arrive outside but do not be put off !! The view when you walk into reception is amazing. Probably best to stay on the beach side. Good accommodation, room perfect, lovely views from balcony. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. All the restaurants were good but we did have...

Waves: Beach- 4 stars, especially with option to visit other 'company' resorts further along the coast. Accomodations- 5 stars. Superb. Food- 4 stars. Good, sometimes very good, but you won't want to eat every dinner on site for more than 2-3 days. Breakfasts are excellent, and the small cafe is a nice alternative for lunches. Pool(s)- 4 stars; 2 for...

We stayed at WAVES 10 – 20 Apr 2017 for Easter. Family of four, 2 girls aged 12 and 14. This review is from me, the dad of the family. THE SHORT REVIEW This is a small resort with only 70 rooms, but that’s no bad thing; it means the food is more lovingly prepared and therefore fantastic; it means...

What a wonderful holiday we have just had. From the moment we walked in we knew we were all going to love Waves. We had booked a ocean front duplex room as we were travelling with our 14 & 12 year old daughters and the room was lovely especially liked the filled mini bar with decanters of rum and vodka....

This was our third time in Barbados and I originally booked a self catering hotel but changed to Waves as we were taking our two children aged 10 & 14 and thought the AI option was better for them as they could help themselves to drinks and participate in the free water sports etc. The change in hotels was the...
