This was my 3rd time to Barbados in 10 years and this hotel was by far the best i've stayed at. Starting to think that many hotels in the caribbean are a little old, tired and behind the standards of Europe per se but Waves had just been renovated in August 2016 and its been brought right up to date....

Stayed here before cruising on the Royal Clipper. From our arrival until we left we were cared for in every way possible. We arrived quite late in the afternoon and were greeted with "don't carry your suitcases downstairs, you are on holiday, you don't need to do anything" and that sums it up. A welcome cocktail no not cheap fizzy...

In my experience this was exceptional and we are already looking to go back next year. Okay, so why go back? We had a beautiful room. Paid...

The hotel was quite beautiful! The rooms were very spacious and beachy/spa like. The view from the too -a jr suite- was beautiful. The beach was small but nice. The food was great. I did feel we were limited to room service especially breakfast. The spa was amazing!!! Anita was a pleasure to work with. She made my day!!!
