Waves is a very nice hotel. Forget the negative comments you will read, these seem to be from people who either have inflated expectations or perhaps just like complaining. Do not use this hotel if... Read more you are looking for night time entertainment as although the hotel does offer nightly entertainment it is very basic. As has been said in many posts, this is not a five star hotel which reflects in the price you pay. If you look at some other rates Waves is actually very good value. The room we had ( PH5) was excellent and the bed was as good as we have ever had in any hotel. Aircon 100% although having the aircon compressor on our balcony was not ideal. What did really stand out was the staff who without exception were excellent. I have seen some reviews suggesting some staff are not up to standard, not my experience. Jackaline on reception was great and a special mention for Shane and the beach crew who did their best to keep everyone happy despite some equipment limitations and som high tides making an already small beach smaller. The new fitness centre is up and running and is very nice, there are some changes taking place including a new dive centre Read less

This was our first visit to Barbados and we were part of a wedding party, a group of 20+! including 2 children unde 3. The service was excellent, courteous, friendly and always accompanied by a... Read more smile. Our room was large with a stunning view of the sea. It was on the ground floor, backing onto the communal terace, however, we were never disturbed by any noise from there. It was cleaned daily and the floors were washed regularly to ensure that the sand from the beach didn't migrate to the bedroom. The Reception staff were pleasant and helpful. Those reviewers who have complained about rudeness on the part of the hotel staff should perhaps examine their own behaviour and attitudes - they are staff, not servants and do not exist to do our bidding! The food was very good and plentiful with ample choice. As some reviewers have complained, the tables tended to get booked for dinner very quickly, so there were often only slots available very early or very late in the evening, however, I believed that to be my own fault for not getting up and organised earlier. I consider those complainants to be petty-minded indeed, as are those who complained about others managing to reserve sun-loungers early in the day. Surely there was nothing to stop us getting down to the beach earlier ourselves if we really wanted those front-line loungers ourselves? Fortunately I am not a sun-worshipper, preferring to swim in the sea instead of frying on a lounger... Did I enjoy my stay? Very much so. Would I come again? Already planning the next trip!

Good value stay. This is not a 5 star hotel and it doesnt pretend to be but it offers clean and comfortable accommodation on a lovely stretch of coast. There things you can pick up on but if you... Read more relax into your holiday they are not big deals - the beach furniture is tired, the service at meal times is generously described as erratic, not all staff are engaged and friendly (most are if you make a bit of effort), there faults you can spot in terms of the fabric of the building. On the plus side we were very happy with the food, the gym was OK and the 'deck tennis' by the gym was good fun. The free watersports were nice to have and going for a quick sail was fun - the snorkelling was decent over the rocks a short distance from the hotel. They did the all inc very well with good cocktails as well as beer and wine (the red was average but the white (+ sparkling) was very OK. Tea in the afternoon if you had room was nicely done. The way they cooked fish impressed us all. We availed ourselves of the spa and the two complimentary massages - I think if I hadnt sent an email beforehand mentioning what was described on the VH website they would have tried to offer us just a half hour massage - it caused confusion but the massages were very very good. The complimentary cat ride to do a bit of snorkelling was very good - two hours with drinks - very pleasant but sadly no turtles (bugger!). Daughters room was ocean front first floor and the proximity of the loud live entertainment precluded any attempt to sleep before 11pm. Good break. Read less

Read more introduction to Scuba in the swimming pool. Lorenzo, the instructor was superb, we paid a further £50 each for an advanced session before he took us out into the sea. Fantastic opportunities at the hotel with a Catamaran trip, Scuba Diving & BBQ. Breakfast & Lunches were a tasty experience! Dinners didn't quite live up to the other meals. Feast was our favourite restaurant to ate at in the evening. All staff were helpful & friendly. The island was beautiful. We can't wait to return to the Caribbean. Read less
