beautiful & quiet

Just returned from a week at this hotel and really dont have any complaints. We stayed in the beach front room, which had been recently renovated and was very nice. Best part about this hotel (for me), was the low number of children. A few teens were there, but not a zillion young ones running around!. I have children, but left mine at home, so this was perfect! One thing that was not clear to me on the web site, is that the adults only area is across the street. That is where the spa and a very nice pool are located. I am unclear as to whether the rooms in that area have been renovated or not. The other pool, in my opinion, is in an awkward spot. It was just off of the lobby. We never used it. With that said, there is not a pool by the beach. The beach is beautiful and you can walk a good distance on it. Staff were great, food was good. Have an Asian fusion restaurant across street and the usual buffet. Served dinner. They do have a dress code for dinner, so be sure to bring something other than flip flops. They have a water taxi at no cost that will run you by three of the other Elegant hotels if you want a change of scenery. We visited Crystal Cove and had lunch. Waves was much better. Also went and had a drink at The Colony. This is not all inclusive, so you have to pay for what you purchase. They also own The Tamerind and Turtle Bay along the southern coast. Water taxi wont take you to Turtle Bay. Talking with many people, Waves was a very popular place. Many return multiple times. Many people from the UK. We are from the US and only met a handful of others from the US. ** I would not suggest the Oisten fish fry on Friday night. We had a terrible experience. Waves offers a good price (20.00US/pp for transportation), but we were led to a "restaurant" by our driver and we waited 2 hours to get our food and bill. Had no time to experience anything else. Our fault for not getting up and leaving. When I explained the situation to the management, they seemed like it was not a big deal. I felt it was a reflection on Waves. I did not ask for a credit, but think one should of been offered :-) . Only upside to going with Waves, is that I was told it cost 70.00pp to taxi RT on another night. Overall, great relaxing week!

Nice boutique hotel

The Waves Hotel & Spa by Elegant Hotels is a quaint little boutique hotel sitting beach side on the north side of Barbados. It is a small hotel so the vibe is intimate as staff quickly knows each guest. The rooms are well appointed with a nice little ocean view. I would recommend requesting a higher level room for a more unobstructed ocean view. We were on the 1st level and first sight is a big metal roof. My friend and I were on girls trip and the room was spacious with 2 twin beds. They also provide a drying rack on the balcony that is handy for drying your swim wear. There is no mini bar in the room. The property is comprised of 2 buildings, the main building (beach access and majority of rooms), and the 2nd building across the street (adults only pool, spa, Shiso asian restaurant, and a few rooms). There is a very small pool about the size of a bath tub in the main building, which no one uses. Definitely a beach focused property. In regards to the true all inclusive, note that the included spa services are mini 30 minute versions. There are about 4 "express" options to choose from including facial and scalp massage. The motorized water sports are tubing and water skiing. There are non motorized including kayak, paddle board, and wind sail. Restaurants: there are technically 3 restaurants on property, 2 in the main building and 1 in the 2nd. The main restaurant is buffet style for breakfast and lunch, and also sometimes for dinner. This restaurant doesn't open for breakfast until 7:30 and lunch until 12:30. The other restaurant in the main building is kind of like a deli. Shiso is by far the best food and I would recommend dining here several times. Note it is closed on Thursday. The beach is quite small but they have plenty of lounge chairs so it isn't an issue getting a decent seat. The water is nice and easy to take a swim. All beaches in Barbados are public so they can't control outside services being sold such as jet ski. There are some beach vendors that also come to sell their wares. All in all this is a nice property that I would recommend if you aren't looking for a mega resort.

Very Accomodating Hotel

We found the hotel staff to be very friendly. The hostess remembered our dietary habits each night and found items on the menu for us to help us decide. They also remembered the drinks we ordered and would ask before bringing to beach, just to verify, but we found it very respectful. The spa is a definite must do. The massages are wonderful and very relaxing, which is for 17+ ages. There is an adults only pool by the spa which is across the street from the main hotel by the beach. It has a much nicer pool than the main hotel, but again is for 17+ ages. The beach is rather small, but very secluded. The hotel includes water sports such as skiing, kayaks and catamaran rides. You can pay for jet skiings and glass bottom boat rides to see turtles. Overall a very relaxing place to visit without crowds.
