Read more tables,,self serving dishes empty,ie.no marmalade,no brown sauce for 3 days,staff overworked affecting service quality levels).The staff were overworked in most areas of the hotel affecting attitude. UGLY- The hotel was full,there were approx.140 people people staying.On the beach and around the spa pool there are approx. 85 sunbeds! The evening entertainment finished at 10.15pm,if you ate after 8.00 they had gone by the time you had eaten.At one stage there were 48 people dancing and the band went home,I asked them why they were going and the answer was they only get paid untl 10.15. We have been to this hotel 5 times (missed last year)and were very disappointed about this change to the entertainment and the reduction in staff levels,it deserves better. Read less

This was our third stay at this hotel and found it to be more enjoyable than the last visit three years ago. I think paying the extra for 'Club Membership' helped although I thought the staff... Read more , without exception, were more customer friendly and went out of their way to assist. The 'club' room was superb with a balcony, sea view, drinks refreshed in the fridge every day, beach towels changed from the room every evening and the room kept clean to a good standard. The three restaurants, we found to be all good, our favourite being 'East' which is across the road in the pool / garden area. Olivers has changed its menu, quite bravely I feel,for an all-inclusive package, but we enjoyed it, although friends preferred it when it had its Italian theme. The lunch service in Olivers was very good and again the staff were superb. Breakfasts in the Seascape and the evening meals were good. The Beach boys also couldn't do enough. TOP TIP. I would say that 75% of the people there are returning customers and are therefore known [or think they are] so be quite forward in making reservations re meals, katamaran [free] and asking for any help - the receptionists were very good and helpful. If you do take the club package - you get free spa treatments at the excellent spa facility, superior wines with each meal [I bottle per room] free transportation to and from the airport and, over a two week period, the option of twelve large premium drinks from the top shelf - these include Tanqueray gin, top brandies and vodkas. this was our third visit to this hotel and probably our last, but only due to the length of flight - Gatwick etc. The hotel has improved and, I believe, from May will not be tied to virgin holidays, might improve even more.

Hotel was clean and staff were lovely! Only problem was general organisation! When we arrived 4 couples could not get into there rooms till the following day, one couple had to wait 2 days? Not a... Read more good start to the holiday after 12 + hours travelling, couldn't unpack till we got our chosen room which we paid extra for. Hotel compensated us with extra spa treatments but would have preferred to try into our rooms straight away. 3 restaurants but only 2 open at a time. Difficult to get a chosen time to eat. Had a lovely holiday but probably wouldn't go back to Waves But definitely want to go back to Barbados! Read less

Stayed in this hotel before and after recent cruise.Very apprehensive about staying at this hotel given the variation in reports viewed over the past months. Firstly, don't be put off by the front... Read more entrance to this property, once inside from the reception you are presented with a fantastic view of the beach and Caribbean sea. The bar and main dining venue present an open vista onto the sea, (sunsets are beautiful!) The staff are friendly and you are welcomed with a rum punch with registration being painless. The reception staff show you to your room and make you feel at home. We booked a sea-view penthouse suite split over two levels on the top floor. here is no doubt that if you want the best views then go for the sea view rooms. The spa side of the hotel on the other side of the main road look over the shaded pool and are quiet but lack the views over the sea. (More on the road later.) The room we had was clean and comfortable and had air conditioning units in both the bedroom and upper sitting room with the outside units placed on the balcony. This was a little noisy but did not detract from the views provided over the beach and out to sea. Both the bedroom and upper sitting from contained flat screen TVs with DVD players. The sitting room also had a fully stocked bar and coffee making facilities. Whilst the bedroom and bathroom were newly decorated and the bed was very comfortable, there was a distinct lack of electrical sockets which made it difficult for my wife to use the supplied hairdryer in front of any of the fitted mirrors. Also note that the free wi-fi does not extend to the bedrooms. Meals in the hotel are provided from two of the three restaurants, only two are open at any one time. Quality and quantity were good but breakfast was not always as well organised as it could have been with food not being replenished often, we always got there early to ensure a good choice. Other mealtimes were fine and although service was not the fastest, we were in the Caribbean and everything is just a little more laid back. Spa was excellent with both of us using the facility with very friendly and professional staff. We tried to book treatments before we left the UK but this was not fully successful, however we were able to arrange everything once we arrived. The fact that the hotel is split over two sights across a main road is an issue. Whilst there is a pedestrian crossing between the sights, Caribbean drivers do not always stop at them. We were warned to be vigilant and wait until cars had stopped before crossing which we did but this does not prevent other drivers overtaking those vehicles that have stopped. We were involved in what could have been a very serious accident when a car overtook a bus that had stopped for us to cross and then struck my wife. The hotel management were excellent in taking care of us but need to do some work to improve safety on the crossing. Generally a good hotel with improvement work proceeding but some decoration still required. Staff very friendly and helpful no real issues here. Food and drink very good and plentiful. We would use this hotel again if staying in Barbados. Read less
