Great stay as always at Waves, superb facilities and really great staff. However stay totally spoiled by no courtesy room /shower facilities or late check out available. Not even if willing to pay. Awful if on a late flight out of Barbados. Not the normal Marriott standard at all
Great holiday in Waves , staff the friendliest we have experienced in the Caribbean. Food & drinks quality very good & no issues booking into the 2 restaurants across the week. Option of being at the beach or at the 2 pools gave a good choice & we had no issues getting a sun bed. Location very good , reggae bus great fun & for only a couple of dollars could be in Holetown in 15 minutes or Bridgetown in the other direction roughly the same. Ocean front suite was great , spectacular views with a huge balcony & mini bar stocked daily. Very clean & bed was huge. Low key entertainment was fine for us with some good acts. Would definitely return based on our experience & again the staff & friendliness was a major plus!
After many hours reading numerous hotel reviews we finally decided on Waves for our October half term trip for 10 days. Thanks to all the advice everything was spot on and we had a great time even though the weather occasionally was a little cloudy/wet. The hotel is small but offers a lot, and the size creates such a relationship with the staff and guests. The staff on the whole are absolutely brilliant, Loreal, Cheryl, Tanya R, Lasonta, Christine, Destiny to name a few are all stars and we are already missing them. We had a sea view room and it's well worth the price for the view. The room is modern and the shower is great. The pool over the road was surprisingly quiet with little road noise and the water a nice change from the sea water. Nice gardens but trees block the sun in the afternoon. We had 3 spa vouchers each and they were a great treat. The beach is small but only a couple of days could we not get a sun bed when we went down mid morning those days. Staff do take towels off if left unused for more than 30 mins. The water sports were great and the staff we ok depending on who served you. Water taxi to other hotels was great, we would recommend this. Cystal cove had a better beach, Tamarind has better grounds while Colony Club had a superb beach and grounds but wasn't all inclusive, but we spent 2 days there snorkelling over the reef and the kids jumping off the pontoon there. Tamarind we had a meal one evening which was great as we found the meals at Waves a bit repetitive. We preferred the two buffet nights at Waves. Chiso over the road was our favourite which we used many times, you just need to book these the day before to get the time you want. The coffee shop at Waves was a real plus, their salads and sandwiches are very good and we preferred that to the restaurant. We booked the Turtle trip from the hotel on a Thursday which was great and booked with Sam the Man for a 4 hour island tour which we would recommend, takes you up the coast and down the east side stopping at some lovely places. He visits the beach every couple of days so you wont miss him. We enjoyed using the local reggae bus, they looked after us making sure we didnt miss our stop and we found all the locals so friendly if we visited again we would get out even more as it's such a safe place. Entertainment on most nights, Virgo on a Friday a don't miss night. We would definitely visit again if we could and if you are after a small, boutique, fairly quiet and relaxing hotel with great staff, good food options (as can visit sister hotels too) and a comfortable modern room, we would recommend it.
