Visited in December for my birthday and loved the place. The room (had Ocean front deluxe, larger than other rooms, on the first floor) was lovely, clean and bright with a beautiful view of the palm... Read more trees and sea. The bed was so very comfortable with crisp sheets. The food was very good. We didn't try Oliver's Twist as we were very happy with Seascape and fEast. All of the staff were very friendly, however they are laid back, which was not a problem to us, as we were on holiday and chilled out, but some people just don't relax even on holiday! Had spa treatments and they were great - try the mango aloe wrap, if you are brave. We only found one bar open, but not a problem as the bartender was very capable and could whisk up a cocktail with great ease. I think the people who give this a low rating must have 5 star expectations. Read less

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Waves as the second part of our honeymoon. We paid extra with virgin for the club package which entitled you to various extras including 5 treatments each... Read more at the spa during our stay, upgraded wine at dinner, dinner served on our balcony one evening, a kindle for use during your stay amongst a few other things- I would definitely recommend paying the extra for this. club members definitely get first preference on restaurant bookings etc which really helps and makes the stay that bit more special. We stayed in a deluxe ocean front room, third floor. I could not fault the room- always clean, really spacious with huge bathroom and nice shower. Nice little touches like decanters of spirits of your choice in the room, snacks and an extended mini bar, which was always replenished daily was lovely- although these features may be exclusive to the club members. Didn't get wifi in room but wasn't a problem- you are on holiday! Breakfast Is good with lots of choice, as was lunch. Although we were only there for 6 days we did not find ourselves bored of the food. Can't comment on people staying more than 1 week and whether there was any repetition. Didn't have any issues at all with breakfast or lunch not being ready on time. We ate at feast which did Asian food- which was great other than service being very slow and portions a bit small. Not sure if that's because we had a late booking but portions seemed very small. Seascape was good- again they could probably do with more staff in the evening- there always seems like a lot at breakfast and not enough at dinner given it's a la carte. Oliver twists was good although lacks the atmosphere. Food was nice though. I can't see why people are complaining about only 2 being open at a time- if you stay for at least 5/6 days you will have the chance to eat in all of them. All inclusives that are a la carte require you to prebook anyway and you can only eat in one at a time! The staff were so lovely and I can't praise them enough- everyone from reception to the spa. We went to sandy lane for afternoon tea and the hotel rang ahead to tell them it was our honeymoon- such a lovely touch. The dinner on the balcony was so lovely, bottle of bubbly on ice and candles on balcony made this a great choice for our last night- with an exclusive food menu you won't find at any of the other restauraunts This is a small hotel, so don't expect all the extras a large all inclusive may offer- I think the intimacy of this place is nicer than others we have visited. Only a few things that could be improved 1. Sun beds being reserved when the hotel say they take the towels off. Not fair to leave them for half the day when others want to use the beach! 2. Beach service for drinks is infrequent- don't expect to be waited on here. 3. Spa pool has no bar- again drinks service infrequent and we actually walked over the road just to get a drink. Selection at bar is very good though- and club members get a 60 dollar allowance for premium spirits not on the all inclusive. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here, and we do feel the hotel made the effort to make it a special stay for us. I am not sure we would have had the same experience without the club package- but having that really made the trip special. Elements of the hotel are bordering 3/3.5- but you get what you pay for and I think this hotel is excellent value. The view as you walk through the hotel towards the bar area overlooking the sea is simply stunning. Outside of the hotel would recommend afternoon tea at sandy lane- do not book through virgin as much cheaper directly through hotel. We also hired jeep and drove around the island for the day- cost about £70 and you keep car until next morning. It's a beautiful island with so much to see- Barbados is so much more than just a beach so I would recommend seeing it! Thank you waves for a memorable honeymoon! Read less

As a yearly returning guest to the waves it doesn't fail to disappoint year after year all the staff are always very friendly and always seem happy in their work. Had a 1st floor ocean front room... Read more which was really spacious and had a lovely view of the beach. The beach is fairly small and kept pleasantly clean by the team who always seem friendly and helpful had no trouble getting sun beds each morning there are plenty for everyone. See Ray on the beach for island tours he is an exceptionally nice guy and he will take you out and show you the island and tell you where the best places are to visit he will give you the best value for your money and he is one of the better ones not pushy you will not be disappointed Also your meet Sam on the beach he's another nice guy and will also do island tours I have been with both but Ray will give you better value for your money.

We have just returned from the most wonderful, great value holiday here. I travel a lot and I have never known service or friendly staff like the Waves staff. Don't be fooled by some peoples bad... Read more reviews on here. Its NOT a 5 star hotel, and doesn't claim to be. It's great value for money and I think some reviews are very unfair on here. People want Sandy Lane 5 star treatments for the price of a travelodge. However I certainly wouldn't class waves with Travelodge. The food was excellent quality, I fell in love with the Hot Thai Coconut and Potato soup in East. Look out for Sandra in the restaurants, She is just lovely, and Nothing is too much trouble. Jaqui at reception will go out of her way to make your day, and Jimmy at the bar will keep you plied with booze! The spa pool is adults only which we enjoyed as it was just myself and my boyfriend on a Romantic break. Our spa room was lovely although it could have done with some more plugs. I have a world wide adaptor which didnt fit in the sockets. 1 4 plug uk adaptor was in the bathroom but we couldnt move it. Minor niggle really. Just a couple of things i'd like to see changed for my next visit. There are not enough beach towels to have clean ones every day so you HAVE to be at the watersports hut for 4.30, and when they are gone that's it and you're stuck with your dirty ones. One day the sea was a bit choppy and a wave soaked my towel. There was nowhere to get another for 2 hours. And people reserving sunbeds we found a problem. The '1 hour rule or your towel is removed' isn't enforced by the staff, and one day by the pool we watched 2 couples arrive and leave as there were no beds that didnt have towels on. 2 of these beds sat empty for 4 1/2 hours before the people who reserved them at 8am showed up! These really were minor issues however. We would absolutley come again. Do the free Catamaran to swim with the turtles! It was so good! Thanks so so much for a wonderful holiday! XX Read less
