Read more con and the fan over the bed were lovely and were a god send in the middle of the night. The beach and sea was really nice and the boys were so helpful with the beds and all the boats ect . Had a lovely trip on the free caterman and saw some turtles and lovely fish. The staff brought us drinks on the beach even had ice lollies. The food was lovely but sometimes the wait was a bit to long but it was always very hot and well presented. Breakfast was wonderful Cheryl was amazing cooking eggs to everyone's requirements and so friendly. Entertainment was really good different "group every night . The virgin rep Linda was briillant and most helpful. The spar treatments were lovely and all the girls were so friendly and do a brillant job it was a real treat.

Pros Ocean View is worth the upgrade. The water sports that are included are awesome. The beach is nice and peaceful. The food was good at the hotel. Nice Spa You can take the local bus for... Read more $2 Cons Pool view room is small, dated, horrible view, and across the street from the main hotel and ocean. The pools are very boring and no bar in a reasonable vicinity. We were originally told that the rooms were the same on both sides; not true. The appearance of the hotel needs upgrades. Very expensive Read less

We had a great time at Waves and found it a very friendly place to be. We stayed on the spa side and had a lovely standaed room. We like a cup of tea first thing in the morning so had taken a... Read more travel kettle but need not have bothered. A kettle, tea bags, milk etc were all provided. Also what we found useful was the bank of UK plug sockets in the bath room which made recharging various things really easy. Yes we did have to cross a busyish road to get to the beach/breakfast restaurant but cars usually stopped - it was NOT a bother. Bus stops are close by so it is very easy to get public transport and explore the island. Staff were friendly, food was very good especially at East and we never had a problem getting sun beds and a shade. The complimentary spa treatments were super. The 'icing on the cake' for us was the excellent evening entertainment. Great singers and one evening a young couple of dancers came and danced with guests - it was great fun. i think they couod do more to inform you of what is going on but that is a minor gripe. But we would definitely go back! Read less

I was slightly worried about the reviews I had seen before we arrived but fortunately there wasn't any reason to worry. Don't worry about the Facade of the property, we stayed in Deluxe Sea facing... Read more room on the first and the room was lovely and clean, and also spacey. We had upgraded to the Luxury Package and used the benefits available from it. We booked treatments before we arrived and the booked more in advance when we got their. We had no issue with times although a couple of treatments did get moved but it wasn't an issue as we were either on the beach or by the pool. We are not a couple that needs to be with each other when we have treatments! We were on Holiday! All the staff were friendly and happy and nothing was to much for them. The Virgin Rep was helpful and friendly and also knowledgeable. We had the free trip to Oistins which to be honest was a great experience but 2/3 hours was enough, but that wasn't the Hotels fault. The free Boat trip was brilliant and great fun and also very safe, full praise to Ray and his team on the beach for always being friendly but also being very health and safety conscious. For me I thought the food was great! Don't know how you can Change the breakfast -it's breakfast and had more than enough variety for us both. Lunch was fine, either in Oliver Twists or Seawaves. At lunch, there was also enough variety for you to change what you had for seven days and I suppose if you stayed longer than a week then I could become a little repetitive but that would be at most hotels I suppose. A little disappointed in the Bar B Q night as thought it may be on the beach! But it certainly wouldn't be something that I would mark the hotel down for. The Directors Wine list was very nice, with enough choice. The Evening Meal, again I thought was great, served to you instead of a free for all Buffet, yes I slightly agree if you had waited 2 hrs for your food you would be angry but I never waited that long although it was slower than the other Two but I was on Holiday and I no rush and enjoy talking to the Mrs over dinner in front of a little pond with fish and turtles in. Late check our was also great. I booked this holiday last year and had to spend a year looking at the reviews. For what I payed this was great value for money, from Virgin Premium Economy Seats to the pick ups and the hotel. We had a lovely afternoon tea at Sandy Lane which was arranged by Antonio who is another asset to the hotel. Reception staff were brilliant. Thank you Waves Team for making our 10 nights just great.
