A wonderful holiday and special memories once again

nicandglenn (Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom) on Jul 01, 2021

This was our second visit to Waves Hotel and despite all the extra plans due to covid it really exceeded our expectations once again and certainly worth it. Barbados and your hotel have got all the protocols brilliant and felt very safe everywhere. A huge Thank you to Kim the manager, her management team and all her staff. Their kindness, fun, interaction and all the small things they do is something so special. We both felt we were were at home and made to feel so welcome and treat us very well indeed. Thank you for your hospitality and making our holiday another brilliant ones for also welcoming our son and partner who is currently still there and having a brilliant holiday From remembering our names, to having extra ice, to knowing which drinks we like and having wonderful conversations with all the staff- they are so happy in what they do, trained to a high level of customer service and many laughs along the way. We love how the management take an interest and special mention to Valerie, Sabrina, Honey, Destiny, Pamela, Christine, Chadderton, the bar team and beach guys - your all doing an awesome job and apologies for not remembering all the names ( too many pina coladas and rum punches) The garden, security, beach, restaurant, cleaners, bar and all at reception and spa are amazing and make Waves Hotel a very special place. Our room was kept lovely and clean, loved the spa treatments and Glenn loved his birthday cake and wine. From the cocktails to the lovely food our holiday was perfect. We had some fabulous food and loved the Asian honeyed pork with noodles (would love the recipe) and the fish and yam balls and lovely soups and salads , wellness drinks and good choices well done to the chefs We definitely will be back and missing it already Keep safe everyone ?????????????? To anyone reading this book for Waves Hotel and enjoy every minute it’s a special hotel and makes you feel refreshed and that you have had a holiday and valued as a guest ??????????????????????????????????

Luxury home away from home

jordanvsmith (Dublin, Ireland) on May 03, 2021

We had the most fabulous stay at Waves just after the new year. Absolutely everything about the hotel is 5 star. The facilities are pristine, and the covid measures in place made our stay very comfortable and safe. The room we stayed in (ocean front junior suite) was beautiful and modern with the most amazing sea views. The housekeeping was brilliant and the room was always left spotless. The complimentary daily afternoon tea selection in the room was a lovely touch. The staff are an absolute credit to the resort, and it is the level of service and personal touch that they provide that really made our stay extremely special. Everyone knows you by name/ remembers your usual drinks orders before you even need to ask and no request is too much for them to fulfill. Thank you to the hotel manager Kim for being so kind and accommodating throughout our trip- we ended up extending our stay as we could not bring ourselves to leave this paradise hotel. Oliver the chef went above and beyond what you would ever expect from the back of house- he went out of his way to order in smoked salmon for my breakfast as due to Covid I think supply of certain products weren’t as usual. When he managed to get this for me, he came out of the kitchen to personally present me with my smoked salmon and eggs for breakfast. Needless to say I was very appreciative! Honey, Ryan and Pamela looked after us so well and always went above & beyond to make our stay so relaxing and stress free. Every staff member was so lovely and delightful to speak to every day, without the team at Waves- the hotel just wouldn’t be the same. The food was all amazing, with a great selection even though slightly limited due to Covid. There was never a shortage of options at any time of day and any special requests were always fulfilled. My dietary requirements are gluten and dairy free, and there was always so many options for me to choose from including the staff delivering gluten free chocolate cake to my room to try! There was no shortage of activities and entertainment- even during a worldwide pandemic and barbados on strict curfews at the time. Waves did everything they could to make every guests stay as normal as possible- it honestly made you forget we were visiting during a pandemic. We made full use of the spa facilities with complimentary massages for each of us throughout our stay. The gym was extremely clean and you had to prebook your session so you’re not sharing the area with other guests. Water sports are complimentary also, so we did water skiing, sailing and stand up paddle boarding which was an amazing addition to have on your doorstep. We also visited some of the other elegant resorts by the free taxi boat and played tennis at Colony Club and Crystal Cove. We had lunch and drinks on the dine around program which was nice to have a change of scene. There was live entertainment on certain evenings which was brilliant, different bands and singers each night. All in all, we had the most incredible holiday at Waves, so good that we had to extend our stay twice as on both occasions we couldn’t bring ourselves to leave! Thank you to everyone who made our trip so special, we cannot wait to return again. :-)

Amazing Honeymoon experience

ReemaThanki25 on Mar 11, 2021

We visited in September 2020 for our Honeymoon, we could not have asked for better quality and COVID safety than this amazing hotel. The facilities were spotless and the staff were amazing and accommodating. With their sister hotel restaurants closed, they made the most of the wonderful chefs they had and changed the menu daily, all food was delicious and no request was out of bounds for them. The overall staff from the front desk, restaurant and bar service was personal and so welcoming, the staff made our trip so warm and fun. Thank you for making our Honeymoon and first trip to Barbados so special, we will definitely be returning.

Staff fabulous

aligalv (Kingston-upon-Hull, United Kingdom) on Feb 03, 2021

We were here in January but had to leave as the hotel was closing due to covid restrictions, hotel re-accommodated us at their sister hotel the colony club. Kim the manager and all her staff made our stay very pleasurable and went out of their way to be as accommodating as possible. Sea front room was lovely and spacious and although the menu was limited it was tasty and hot. There is a gym with everything you need and this was sanitised after use. Would re-visit once normal service in the world resumes!
