The focus on mind & wellness, freshly prepared dishes, cultural, artistic and local activities provides an opportunity for guests to unwind and reconnect.
This eco-chic wellness hotel, nestled on a beachside cliff, caters to those seeking a mind and body holiday: whether guests are looking for a serene adult-only escape in the dedicated adult spa side of the property or a high-energy communal oceanfront lounge setting, the 70 room eco-chic hotel offers an authentic Barbados experience to all ages. The hotel is located just 30 minutes from Grantley Adams International Airport and 15 minutes from Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados.
Complimentary spa treatment
Each Adult receives two complimentary Spa Treatments for stays of 5 nights or longer.
Enjoy access to Crystal Cove. Water Taxi service is complimentary and operates daily weather permitting. Please see hotel concierge for more details
Initially we were booked for 14 nights to stay at the Crystal Cove hotel having stayed there four years ago. Unfortunately we found Crystal Cove to be really dated and in need of a makeover. Whilst there were some positives such as the large beach, a selection of good food at Reflections and the Vista bar for great Martinis (thanks Raheem), I found some staff to be quite rude at times & not what I would have expected in delivering good customer service.
After taking advantage of being able to visit sister hotels we spent a day at Waves in the adults only section & decided that we much preferred this boutique style hotel. I liaised with Virgin holidays we were fortunately able to transfer us to Waves staying in the adults only section across the road from the main hotel.
Our room was quite large with two single beds for two friends sharing. Our room was cleaned every day to a high standard (thanks Pauline) with water left every day & facilities to make coffee & tea.
The staff at Waves provide an exemplary service and special thanks to Jaqueline & Tamesha.
There are two restaurants to choose & book in the evening (Seascape & the Asian Fusion). We preferred Seascape as we did not enjoy the meal in the Asian Fusion restaurant. Breakfast is a buffet and there is a wide selection of food to choose from. There is a cafe which also serves lunch style snacks, coffee, tea & cakes. The bar is located in the main hotel & the staff are great & drinks excellent.
We spent all our time at the adult only pool with a pool service provided by the wonderful pool ambassador Pamela who is fabulous & a real credit to the hotel. We had lunch poolside along with regular drinks & frozen grapes provided & in the afternoon sprayed with a peppermint mist.
Overall this hotel is a real gem, all the staff are a credit welcoming you, going above & beyond. I’ll definitely be back.
An incredible honeymoon
(Northamptonshire, United Kingdom)
Jun 15, 2022
We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Waves for our honeymoon. We have had the most wonderful time, it being our first visit to Barbados we didnt know what to expect but we weren't disappointed. We don't usually opt for all inclusive as we like to enjoy local food, we were a little worried that we might not have the carribean experience but we needn't of worried. Each day whether it be at the buffet breakfast and lunch or evening meals there was always an option to cater to all tastes, we particularly enjoyed the local fish options, everything was cooked to a really high standard. A real highlight for us was the West Indian buffet night, we are real foodies and the food was just incredible, hats off to the chefs!
We stayed in an ocean front room which was beautiful, well worth upgrading to wake up to the carribean sea each morning, house keeping were fantastic.
We spent time at both of the pools and the beach, never had a problem getting a lounger at anytime of day. The beach and pool ambassadors were all really attentive, always making sure we had a drink in our hand. The cocktails were amazing, we worked our way through the list, the grapefruit cooler and rum punch being a favourite.
We also took advantage of the scenic island tour, swimming with turtles and oistins fish fry shuttle all arranged via the hotel. After researching trips beforehand booking these via the hotel worked out to be much cheaper so was great value.
The spa treatments were great, such a treat! The 3 spa treatments per person included were a real selling point for us and we weren't disappointed.
Evening entertainment consisted of some talented vocalists and bands, really enjoyable chilled evenings in a really relaxed atmosphere. If you are looking for a lively nightlife this perhaps won't be suited to you unless you venture outside of the hotel in the evenings, it was perfect for us.
Overall a truly wonderful stay, everyone was incredibly friendly and really made you feel at home. We were so sad to leave but have some wonderful memories ?
