This place is awesome, must say the team really went above and beyond to blow both me and my wife's expectations. Special shoutout to Crystal Front office manager for helping me with my actual booking before I arrived. On arrival, was greeted by the nice staff and offered welcome drinks, while I wait and fill out some documents for my checkin form. In addition, when all that was through, we were instructed on how to get to our room, because of the covid 19 protocols, they can not be in the rooms with guest. Which I found to be alright and reasonable. On entering our room, Boom!! We were greeted by a nice room and and huge bed and mattress dressed up with congratulation on our wedding ( we are on our honeymoon by the way) To add, the room is great overlooks the ocean with stunning views. The spa experience was very lovely also shoutout to the entire team Stacey, Debbie and Kat. Our spa treatmens were lovely, felt relaxed and cared for. Kudos to the spa team!!! Overall, nice to place to go, the staff takes care of you well nothing was ever too much to ask for and the management as well. To conclude, one the only hotels I've been to where you actually see management go out their traditional roles and help and opposed to deligate work. Thanks again Crystal Front Office Manager and Kim the General Manager. We'll be back next year:) Kind regards the Daniel's P.S Will definitely look to come again.

We were really pleasantly surprised by this absolute gem of a hotel. We are not usually ones for all inclusive preferring to eat out. The food here is varied and to an excellent standard and the service is impeccable often knowing what you want before you do. The staff are extremely attentive and the Covid protocols ensure you are safe without being over bearing. Thank you for such a wonderful stay we will definitely be returning in January.

I could gush about this hotel forever. From their professional handling of Covid and quarantine, to their eagerness to accommodate and look after their guests, their service exceeded all my expectations. I cannot give this hotel enough praise, or Treasure Beach by extension. The staff were attentive and kind, all going the extra mile. The food was to die for, the room was amazing, the spa was pure luxury, I could go on. The pools were spotless - the entire place was. Even small details were covered. Whenever I go abroad I try to visit new places when returning to a country, but when I return to Barbados I will be staying at Waves again. The beach is well looked after and gorgeous, and because it's on the West Coast the sea is calm even during rainy season.

It's worth going through the admin and testing to get to Barbados....I'll say no more about that as it is what it is. We quarantined at Treasure Beach and it was the right decision as we are able to use the amenities with others who were also quarantining. The pool area was really comfortable with poolside drinks service. The room was nice (a comparable one to what we paid for at Waves). The downside was the food - eating out of cardboard boxes in the room became tiresome very quickly. Service was slow (I think the hotel was just getting used to the new procedures). However the staff were great - Lisa in particular. We'd do this again if needed. We had a fantastic oceanfront room at Waves. A stunning view. Stunning. Great sunsets. We chose to have for daily room servicing and it was great to have that option. We enjoyed the hotel, in particular the staff were fantastic, and the spa was amazing, even with the limited services. The beach is small, accessed down a staircase, but loungers were available and easy to find (no cushions though), beach service for drinks was frequent and the motorised watersports were fun (particularly duelling donuts)! The food was all a-la-carte and always good. Lunch was sometimes too fancy so you can also order simpler items from the coffee shop menu (salads and sandwiches) - it would have been good if those items were included on the restaurant menu. The quality of food was always excellent and it's always under the watchful eye of pesky birds ready to grab anything you leave behind. Service could be slow but it wasn't tooooo bad. We would definitely return. Other comments: - The road dividing the hotel is an issue for me. It just put me off using the adult pool. It felt like leaving the resort and going somewhere else. Luckily the oceanside had all the facilities I need (except the spa). - I was not a fan of the pool on the oceanside. It's very enclosed and the views are basically of hotel walls and windows. It was peaceful though. I think that space would be better as the yoga/exercise deck with the pool overlooking the ocean where the exercise deck currently is. - I think the bar could be improved (it's just a little plain). So while I rate service, cleanliness and sleep quality as five, these are what lower my overall rating to four.

Dear Craigleslieuk, Thank you for taking the time to review your past stay with us. We are happy to know that despite the trouble you encountered prior to arriving to the hotel, your stay with us was a relaxing one. We saw that you were privileged to have occupied an Ocean Front Room which allowed for the enjoyment of the setting sun across the crystal clear ocean. It is great to learn that the staff looked after your needs and made sure that you were comfortable. A holiday at Waves Hotel would not have been completed without the inducing of pure relaxation and rejuvenation at the spa and the enjoyment of the Sea, Sand and Sun whilst lounging on the beach or adding a bit of excitement by participating in watersports. All of which you enjoyed. The food you also mentioned was to your satisfaction. We have acknowledged your comments pertaining to the menu, the pool and the other comments. We thank you once again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you again soon. Warm Regards, Shanette
