Relaxing Get Away

babaies0109 (Camberley, United Kingdom) on Jan 26, 2023

I should have written this review when I got back early December but time just got in the way!! What a lovely hotel, the food and amenities where spot on. But its the staff here that make it. I've been lucky enough to be visiting Barbados for over 50 years and the staff here are the kindest and friendliest I've come across. I wish I could remember some of the names of the staff as they all deserve a shout out. Food was of good standard, particularly on A la Carte nights. Coffee shop is great too, but not good for the waist line as trying to ignore those cakes and biscuits was very hard. We had a sea front room for 3 people and it was plenty big enough. If your budget allows I would suggest one of these rooms as the road facing room can be noisy. The adult only rooms where over the road in another complex but I thougt these to be a bit on the dark side . The beach is well served with a bar/staff who regularly came round with refreshments and ice creams. Lots of water sports on offer and it's a nice bonus to have the water taxi which takes you to the other hotels in the group along the coast. The beach is on the small side, particularly when the waves are strong and during our stay quite a bit of the beach was washed away. I understand they are going to put some sort of break in the water soon to try and reduce this problem. All in all we had a wonderful time and hope one day to return.

An absolute gem.

I was almost apprehensive to compose this review because I don’t want others discovering how utterly fantastic Waves is. Albeit the hotel itself is a bit tired this is completely made up for in delicious food, a beautiful beach, wonderful water sports and AMAZING SERVICE. My mother and I have travelled extensively throughout the world and within the Caribbean - never have we been so impressed. The people were absolutely lovely and we were always greeted with a smile. This is absolutely NOT the resort for you if you want to party and drink until the wee hours of the morning. If you are, however, looking for some great R&R and an escape from a cold winter… get your chilly butt here fast! A special thank you / shout out to: Mali, Sabrina, Charmaine, Jennifer, Rhys, Valerie, Shermarke (I’m so sorry if I spelt this incorrectly) and Jakobi - you made our annual Mother Daughter trip an awesome experience. We will be back!!!
