    Beautiful room

    We travelled with our baby and toddler as part of a round the world trip. The room we had was stunning and the staff super helpful and friendly. Our toddler had a bad ear infection and they were great at organising a driver and hospital appointment for us. The beach is beautiful but sea was quite rough for the little ones and they have a dangerous apples at the end of the beach you need to make sure the kids don’t touch. The restaurants were great, we loved the live music and all the guests were super friendly to each other. There is a boat shuttle to the other hotels in this chain and it was great to be able to use all their restaurants too. We preferred the adults only pool but couldn’t use it. If we returned we would come without the children.

    This is the best hotel ever staff are fabulous would highly recommend thanks to Kim and all her team. Went on a fantastIc tour arranged with a local taxi firm. Avoid Sam the man on the beach he doesn’t work for a taxi firm and although very charming his prices are above the firm that waves uses plus not sure if he has an licence. Fantastic stay

    50th Birthday

    Visited Barbados for my partners 50th Birthday. Staying at Waves in Prospect Bay. What a gem of a place! Could not fault it in anyway. Beautiful seafront large room ( more like a junior suite), amazing food, great quality and quantity, friendly, professional staff, they made it such a relaxing, fun holiday and can't thank them enough. Kendrick (Kenny behind the bar) Pam the beach lady, Akheem behind the reception. They made my partners 50th Birthday special with cake and wine put into our room, lovely touch. Can't thank them enough for the fantastic time, will certainly go back after this horrendous virus disappears.

    The perfect hotel

    First stay, unfortunately it short due to Covid-19. Will definitely revisit. Staff very pleasant, food good and location perfect. The child free zone is ideal, quiet and peaceful. Choice of restaurant s also good.

    Second visit (so far!)

    We arrived on 8th March for 2 weeks, staying across the road in the Spa area, as we did last year. It was amazing how many staff remembered us, which immediately put us in holiday mode. What we also found to our surprise were the number of guests that we met last year, who at also returned at the same time. The hotel is beautifully situated and the food in Seascape, Shiso and Kyma was plentiful and good quality - I pre-ordered lobster (24hrs notice required) at $75BBD which was delicious. However what continues to make this hotel extra special is its staff (Marriott - please don’t change that). We had our favourites but it would be unfair to name (many) individuals as everyone we dealt with was friendly and extremely helpful. This was particularly poignant as the Covid19 virus was hitting Barbados towards the end of our holiday and as a result, many of the staff were being laid off. We promised at the time that we would be back in 2021 and we intend to honour that commitment, to support the staff, hotel and the beautiful island of Barbados. Adieu and stay safe. Ray & Jill x
