Our pre wedding honeymoon at Waves

Helbemato (Harwich, United Kingdom) on May 05, 2024

We have today returned from a lovely 10 days stay at Waves. The staff are outstanding, the food was of restaurant standard however I agree that the menu could do with a bit more variation each day. We had a sea front room with a lovely balcony to watch the sun go down. The room was a good size with a very comfortable bed. There was also a little room with a wardrobe, fridge, kettle, and coffee machine with pods, which were replaced daily. Our cleaner Mary did a great job although we never saw her. The room could do with a bit of an update eg..painting etc but it was good otherwise. We used the water taxi once and went to The Tamarind. Virgin offered to move us there because of the renovations going on at Waves. I'm so glad we stayed where we were. It was very tired and not very clean. I understand its closing in June for major refurbishment...it needs it. We went out on the hobicat, which was great fun. Most of the days were spent on the beautiful beach being waited on, sprayed with a lovely cooling spray, ice lollies ,fruit , wet face cloths and of course cocktails We never had a problem getting sunbeds. In fact, when we left yesterday, there were only a few of us there. We did the Mount Gay tour with the hotel and also Oistins on the Friday evening, which was well worth going to just for the experience. We also got a taxi to watch the racehorse swim in the sea. Use the local buses they are also an experience and very cheap. We used Mals taxis to do 4 hour Island tour. If you want a true view of the island, then look him up. He took us to his grandmother's house then for a very cold beer in the village. It was good to see the island without loads of people. He will take you wherever you want to visit and will know all about it. Lastly, we had a few treatments in the hotel spa. They were excellent. My partner had his first manicure. The good to go massage was great. All in all, it was a fabulous holiday. The hotel staff go that extra step to make it special. Thank you to the exceptional staff for making our time spent with you special

Fantastic

kettylemary54 (Warwick, United Kingdom) on May 04, 2024

From the minute me arrived, given a great cocktail and everything well organised reception staff were fantastic. We were in a sea view room which was outstanding and defo feel value for money. The restaurant is doing its best accommodating the fact only one open, food was lovely so much choice. ( would of been nice that virgin had made us aware) but hotel doing there best and the customer service everywhere in the hotel is fantastic, little nice treats throughout the day was lovely. Excellent leadership and management team interested in your feed back and reflects that staff feel valued, two many names to mention but first time been to a hotel and every member of staff were fab. Can’t wait to return to hotel and beautiful island.
