          We have stayed a couple of times at the Waves was lovely but thought to have a change and try the Tamarind we did take the water bus to have a look its not as modern as the Waves and they were having some improvement done to the dining area. We are a little worried about a recent very negative feedback but others seem fine and we were told that if we were unhappy that if possible the Waves would try and fit us back in. Question is are there any visitors who have been both to the Waves and the Tamarind? just trying to put our minds at rest as we love Barbados.

          Hey we are staying here in October, our honeymoon combined with our friends getting married in Barbados. We will have lots of friends staying locally. Can we upgrade to allinclusive when there? Or do we need to do it before? We are bringing our 4 year old son. Has anyways experience with the children's club? How much is recommended for spending money if not allinclusive ? Just bed and breakfast. 10days Thanks
