We visited this hotel from one of the sister hotels, and were SO glad that we hadn't booked to stay there. It's right on the road, both sides, and with virtually no greenery anywhere. It's a modern concrete jungle, with steps down to a tiny beach which is shaded from the sun for half of the day. And there's the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

My wife and I stayed at this hotel over Christmas and the New Year for five weeks and found it to be absolutely fantastic. 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...

Our room was the superior ocean view suite, absolutely divine although a bit rough around the edges (i.e. showers not fitted properly). Food okay, not great. Bit soulless at night so if you're looking for a buzzy atmosphere, then this is not for you. Staff helpful but defensive if you raise, politely, any issues. Beach beautiful. Spa really nice, had...

We have stayed in other Elegant properties but this was our first visit to Waves. It has been refurbished to a very high standard, sea front rooms are excellent, comfortable bed, quiet air conditioning and a large shower room, even eye shades laid out on pillows!! Personal toiletries would be better rather than dispenser soap and shampoo! All this kept...

I don't normally write reviews on this site, but after staying at this hotel, the current rating it has does not do it justice, and in our opinion should be rated much higher. We have been to Barbados twice before, and we were worried and had experienced hotels in Barbados looking tired and not looked after. My wife and I...

We had visited Barbados 5 years ago and had a very disappointing experience so did not want a repeat and were recommended Waves by a travel agent who had recently visited. First impressions were great, nice friendly welcome, walking in down the steps off the busy road was like walking into an oasis. The room which was ocean view on...

Your start to relax the minute you arrive at this hotel. An excellent welcome from the reception staff, very easy check in. We had a poolside room as sea view rooms were all fully booked. This room did not disappoint, spacious, clean and the pool just outside was a real bonus. The facilities in the hotel were great, the water...
