We stayed at the Waves to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary in May 2014. We were really looking forward to this vacation and were disappointed at the challenges the first day we encountered in... Read more regards to our room and the service. Our first room on the 2nd floor had a very loud noise. We called the front desk to report this and the person who came to check it out didn't understand what it possibly could have been. We went back and forth and I even recorded this loud noise to bring to the manager. We took our bags and headed out of the room to go back downstairs and there before my very eyes (and ears), much to my surprise, it was the elevator that was making that noise. I wondered how the staff could not have known what this noise was because we certainly could not have been the only guests in this room to ever to bring it to their attention! We were given a room on the 3rd floor on the opposite side of the hallway from the first room. After a few minutes, we heard the noise again! Obviously, more infrequent than we heard it when we were located on the 2nd floor because there are less trips to the 3rd floor. Once again, we dragged our bags downstairs and I now demanded to speak with a manager instead of the witch at the front desk. Needless to say, we were on the front desk's naughty list after our encounters with them. The nice manager was very accommodating and brought us across the street to the spa rooms. It was a quiet area but the room was smaller. We were pleased with it and thankful to have a calm, quiet area. I was happy not to have to walk by the front desk every time we left our room. After getting through that ordeal, we came across very nice staff and the trip was very enjoyable. Valerie was the nicest staff person we have ever come across on a vacation, we will always remember how good she was to us. All the restaurants were fantastic and we did not go hungry (or thirsty) our whole time there. We are the type to sit by the pool or on the beach, we aren't big party people so this was the perfect hotel for us. We did go into town one day for shopping. The supermarket is not far from the resort and I was able to stop there on my morning running route. I wish I could say I would stay here again because other than our troubles we mentioned, it was perfect. I think I would try a different place Barbados just because of my experience on the first day. Also, because I was given a hard time when checking out when I asked for "zero balance' bill. I asked because I felt like I would have been screwed by the front desk witch who had our credit card on file. It was a fight but I did get it before I left. Read less

We decided to enjoy Christmas in the Caribbean and having been to the Waves before, it was the obvious choice for three reasons. Firstly all of the staff - the receptionists, the bar staff, the... Read more restaurant staff and the cleaners - are all really friendly and helpful. Secondly, the food is fabulous. The food has always been good on our previous visits, but it was even better than usual this time, especially the desserts. If I mention chocolate chip bread and butter pudding with rum sauce (although the chocolate chips are more like chunks) and cappuccino trifle you'll get some idea of what I'm talking about. Breakfast and lunch are buffets and with the vast choice of food on offer for both meals, there's something to suit every palate. Two of the hotel's three restaurants are open each evening for dinner and fresh local seafood is always one of the options available, although there are many others. Thirdly, the Waves is in a great location being just a short bus ride away from both Bridgetown and Holetown. This is a great hotel and we are definitely looking to go back there. Read less

This was our 9th visit to this hotel and we are looking to book next year. Great location in Barbados on the west coast so just a local bus ride to Holetown or Bridgetown which costs just 2 bajan... Read more dollars however far you travel. The best restaurants are on the west coast so within easy reach. The hotel is not "the Ritz" but if you enjoy good value for money with three different excellent restaurants cooking a lot of fresh fish and local dishes this is for you. Of course you could also have steak if you prefer. Everything is clean we had our white cotton sheets changed every 3 or 4 days. If you prefer to have a quiet holiday then I suggest you book the spa side rooms as no children are allowed that side. Great value for money and the staff are great. Read less
