Waves: Beach- 4 stars, especially with option to visit other 'company' resorts further along the coast. Accomodations- 5 stars. Superb. Food- 4 stars. Good, sometimes very good, but you won't want to eat every dinner on site for more than 2-3 days. Breakfasts are excellent, and the small cafe is a nice alternative for lunches. Pool(s)- 4 stars; 2 for...

We stayed at WAVES 10 – 20 Apr 2017 for Easter. Family of four, 2 girls aged 12 and 14. This review is from me, the dad of the family. THE SHORT REVIEW This is a small resort with only 70 rooms, but that’s no bad thing; it means the food is more lovingly prepared and therefore fantastic; it means...

What a wonderful holiday we have just had. From the moment we walked in we knew we were all going to love Waves. We had booked a ocean front duplex room as we were travelling with our 14 & 12 year old daughters and the room was lovely especially liked the filled mini bar with decanters of rum and vodka....

This was our third time in Barbados and I originally booked a self catering hotel but changed to Waves as we were taking our two children aged 10 & 14 and thought the AI option was better for them as they could help themselves to drinks and participate in the free water sports etc. The change in hotels was the...

Words are hard to express the overall quality and outstanding service received whilst at this hotel. We visited this hotel to celebrate my daughter' 21st birthday. The staff made this a most memorable experience. Along with a complimentary bottle of bubbly and a birthday cake, the rooms are first class and maintained to a high level. The sea view rooms...

We spent 8 days at the Waves Hotel and Resort and it was one of the best vacations that we’ve had as a family. When we vacation we are in search of family friendly all-inclusive that have a boutique hotel and smaller, more intimate feel which can be difficult to find. Waves ended up fitting all of these and exceeded...

We've travelled a lot and have many places to compare to. For some, you will love this place and for others, like us, 7 nights were a few too many.
