We've just returned from a week at Waves and loved it. We're normally quite exacting and expect high standards; Waves more than lived up to the promises. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Our room was lovely and very spacious. We made full use of the water sports; the facilities were great, the instructors were friendly and...

Recently returned from a lovely holiday at Waves. Went to celebrate our 30th anniversary and certainly not disappointed. Do not be put off by the modest entrance to the hotel - as soon as you go down the steps to reception you are met with an awesome of the sea through the open lounge. We were upgraded to a sea-view...

My wife and I went to Barbados for our 40th wedding anniversary in August and booked a package that included a week at Waves. We were warmly welcomed at check-in, upgraded to an ocean-view room and for the rest of the week we were treated like family in this beautiful small hotel. We have stayed at hotels round the world...

We have recently returned from our lovely holiday at Waves. We were both truly impressed with all of it. The view as soon as you arrive in the reception through to the sea was awesome and although our room was over at the pool/spa area we didn't feel that we missed out on it as throughout breakfast, lunch and dinner...

Also, Barbados as an island is amazing! Here are some of the positives: - The beachfront is absolutely stunning - really. It's nicer than almost every other beach we... More

Just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks at the new Waves Hotel, which has been taken over and beautifully refurbished by the Elegant Hotels group. Any reviews prior to August this year are therefore out of date and should be ignored. What a great hotel! We had a beautiful, bright, junior suite with a stunning ocean view from our spacious...
