TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Wonderful location. Stunning ocean front rooms which are well worth the upgrade. Free spa treatments. Free boat tour. Excellent choice of food. The alcohol is typically local so not amazing but still... Read more fine. Everything was almost perfect apart from....the staff. Probably the rudest reception staff I have ever encountered. We had booked a week away to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday. Upon arrival my parents noticed the 'frosty' welcome which I out down to the receptionist being stressed as everyone was arriving together. Throughout the week it gradually got worse. The simplest of things such as asking for a $20 note to be changed resulted in a problem. The general conversation between other guest was similar. The housekeeping manager could also do with a little brush up on how to speak to guests! To add to this we where 'tortured' by the beach attendants. Originally we thought they had been employed by the hotel but later learnt they are locals who are trying to make money. It took us a week to work out that they had ripped off nearly every guest in the hotel. If it wasn't being asked to go on a jet ski, but aloe Vera, a wooden hat it was listening it them swearing and fighting with each other whilst high smoking weed. Not something my parents wanted to see or hear. We assumed the beach was private to the hotel but it is a public beach so they are free to do as they wish. Be warned, no telling them you're not interested will help! The lift is also broke and has been for 7 weeks. The manager said they are 'still waiting for a part' but it is low season so they are in no rush to fix this. In saying all of this the location, cleanliness and rooms are excellent. I am just not sure why the owners of this hotel do not want a perfect hotel? It's almost there... We would return if the reception staff have a customer service course and realise that sometimes we all have bad days at work but at the end of the day our $4000 contributed to their wages so a little smile would be appreciated. Waitress staff however where excellent. Thank you for making my mothers 60th birthday meal a one to remember! Read less
The main reason behind the very good rating is quite simply customer service. In these days of rubbish, obstinate service from day to day when dealing with large corporations, this hotel really is a... Read more breath of fresh air. You come as a customer but leave as friends. Myself and my partner visited the Waves for 10 days this month on an all inclusive holiday and the reception was warm and professional, any queries we had during that time were handled with a minimum of fuss, the staff were always very attentive and friendly. The food was consistently of a good standard with a "mainly Bajan" twist, The Spa area was very clean with well trained staff and the Spa pool area was a bit of a favourite with us with the coconut trees giving much needed shade in the midday heat, plus free Wifi for us internet geeks. All in all a happy place to visit and to work and would very much recommend it to couples and families. Read less
We had been booked into another hotel (see review for Sun bay hotel) but insisted we were moved. It was suggested we look at Waves. We took a bus ride to Waves to look at the hotel. Rochelle was... Read more expecting us and instantly had someone show us a room. This hotel saved us from what could have been the worse holiday ever. The staff at Waves pulled out all the stops for us insisting that we could not go home with bad memories of Barbados. Rochelle, Jackie and the rest of the team front of house could not do enough for us. They put us in an amazing sea view room making us feel part of their 'hotel family' We would recommend this hotel in a heart beat. The rooms are great. The facilities are great. The food is great. We never encountered any negatives during our stay. We will be emailing the hotel manager personally to ensure that all staff involved in making us so welcome, get the recognition they rightly deserve. Well done Waves!! Read less
