Everything was great!

The food, service, hotel, spa, beach and everything was perfect! We visited this hotel for my husband's 30th birthday and the staff at the hotel arranged a bottle of wine in the room, special birthday cake and message without a special request by me. The staff servicing the beaches and the pool were also absolutely amazing and pleasant. My husband and I can't wait to go back for our next trip!

Friendly service.

Service was very friendly. Everyone made you feel welcome and special. No problems ordering special meals for dietary concerns. Food was averaging tasting except for a few selections. They kept the grounds clean. Only other issue was the time it took to receive a drink after ordering from the wait staff at the beach or pool.

Honeymoon We Won't Forget

As we entered The Waves, we were greeted by a friendly staff who offered drinks right away. The room that we stayed in was an ocean front room and I am so glad that is what we chose. The room was completely updated and the view was amazing. The whole hotel was also newly renovated and everyone who worked here was the best! I would definitely return to Barbados and stay strong the waves again, no question.

Amazing!!

Great hotel in a beautiful location. This was our first trip to Barbados and we loved the island, it's people and the hotel. The staff truly goes above and beyond. They are friendly, helpful and great at their jobs. It's a smaller hotel which is different than other vacations for my family but we loved it. The restaurants had enough variety and the food was great. The coffee shop was wonderful, we were there every day for sandwiches, pastry and ice cream. The front desk staff were very knowledgeable. They helped us arrange tours with no pressure at all. The watersports staff was great. My teenagers loved all the options and were busy all week. The beach ambassador program is pure genius. Frozen fruit, ice cream, cold towels and of course drinks from the bar. There were plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The water is great, calm with soft sand. I'm usually ready to leave by day 5 of a vacation but that wasn't the case this time. I wish we could've stayed another week! We will be back next year!! Thank you Waves!!

Amazing!! Amazing!!

Waves

The waves resort was a wonderful spot to go for a honeymoon. The staff there were all friendly greeting us with signature cocktails and a friendly smile. All staff and I mean all staff were friendly kind and resourceful Whether it was Danielle greeting us at the front desk or Christine making fantastic lattes at the coffee shop or Kendrick fixing up a quick cocktail all of the staff were impressively professional throughout our stay. The food was top notch at this resort through and through. Buffet style breakfast and prixfix dinner menus were really enjoyable. The booze was a little underwhelming but it kept us from overindulging. I would definitely stay at this resort again and just might next year for our one year anniversary.

Awesome getaway

My wife and I planned a getaway to Barbados, found the waves hotel and spa. Upon arrival we are greeted very warmly. The rooms were well furnished and extremely comfortable. Our only slight disappointment was the selection of dining options.

Great Stay

The people at the resort were the friendliest that I had encountered at any resort in the last 10 years.The room was very comfortable and clean. No smell of mildew or mold whatsoever. Security was very visible and we had no threats of being unsafe here. Drinks and food were good. The resort gives you access to 3 sister properties and their restaurants. The pool was okay, but the beach amazing, relaxing, with a number of water sports included. You don't have to race down at the crack of dawn to secure an umbrella. We will definitely stay here again.

Low Key Getaway

Overall if you're looking for a very low key, relaxing vacation then I would recommend Barbados and this hotel. While we're more adventurous people, this island was nice, but doesn't provide as much adventure and culture as we like during our vacations. This is unrelated to the hotel which was great, but worth mentioning. Positives - Staff: Everybody was helpful, friendly, and professional. The service overall was very good. - Rooms: The Hotel was recently renovated and very well kept. - Water Activities: Unlike most hotels we've been to, this hotel included motorized water sports (except jet skis). The staff would bring you out on the ocean if you wanted to go tubing or water skiing and they also had paddle boards and kayaks to be used. - Spa Services: We were very pleased with the complementary spa vouchers that we received. We used them to upgrade our services and were very pleased with our massages. Negatives - Meals: While all the food was very good, breakfast and lunch became very repetitive. Dinner at both restaurants had a little more variety. The cafe was nice for an afternoon snack or we'd go there instead of the buffet for lunch. - Entertainment: The only entertainment was a live band each night and sometimes they'd still be setting up when we finished dinner so we'd just go back to our room. - Pool Maintenance: The staff would do the pool treatments a few morning during the week. The adults only pool gets morning sun so we'd be over there until the afternoon when we'd go to the beach. During the treatments you couldn't use the pool. One treatment took over 2 hours. I'd suggest starting them earlier so guest aren't turned away from the pool. Neutral (but worth mentioning) - Hotel Location/Layout: The adults only section of the hotel and some of the hotel rooms (1 of the pools and spa) are located on the other side of the street. This didn't bother us, and there are always guards to help you get across if necessary (cars always stopped for us), but it's worth mentioning.

Expensive Sunglasses Stolen in Resort Lobby

It's sad to say that I stayed at the Waves spa in July 2017 and on my 3rd night at the hotel the hotel staff stole my sunglasses in the resort lobby where they play music. I left my glasses on a table that me & my wife was sitting at go dance to the music that they was playing in the resort lobby to come back to my table 10 minutes later to see that my Sunglasses of $750 value was stolen that fast. It clearly shows that you can't even dance and leaving something on your very own table while you are on vacation. I know for a fact that the hotel drink server came back to clean the table and stole my glasses. My sunglasses was never returned and the hotel staff did not make any effort to find my glasses until the day of checkout. After numerous request to report my glasses stolen , a manager didn't take a report until I was checking out off of course. I have yet to hear anything back the Waves & Spa & I don't think I ever will get a return phone call back. You would expect who old you are on vacation that your personal items would be safe in the resort lobby where you are a having a drink. Choose another resort if you are smart
