A beach postcode, contemporary interiors and a peaceful spa area, the Waves Hotel and Spa has all the makings of a relaxing retreat.
This place sits right on the edge of a white-sand beach. Rows of palm trees give the beach a private feel, and the gentle waves are perfect for paddling. Plus, it’s just a 10-minute cab ride away from Bridgetown.
The property had a makeover for winter 2016, so you can expect a sleek and modern finish. Rooms boast little extras, like big flat-screen TVs, yoga mats and Bluetooth speakers.

Room was very nice lovely decor and quiet ac...beach was lovely bit small but enough room to relax...watersports were fun.....and free apart from jet ski 50 us dollar for half hour..we went up to crystal cove and colony club 2 or 3 times each to vary pur stay..used the free water taxi. The snorkeling in the protected reef at colony was excellent....the beach at bridgetown is also a must....and also swimming with the turtles was fantastic.....i did enjoy the waves from start to finish....but i heard a rumour prices had gone up a lot on what we paid if thats the case then there are things they would have too improve to command higher prices....ðMore
Brilliant hotel with small faults
The hotel itself has been refurbished to a very high standard and the rooms are very nice. We wasn't able to use the bigger pool as its adults only and the small pool is very basic and right by the main road making it a little noisy it also loses the sun by lunchtime. The hotel is crying out for another pool over looking the beach. Some guests complained the road noise was too much in there room but this didn't affect us. The food was very good but the restaurants would definitely benefit from some air con or more fans as it was too hot to eat in. Shiso is well worth a few visits if you are a fan of Asian food. One night we visited the Colony Club for a BBQ buffet night on a Tues at the additional cost of 60usd pp well worth it in my opinion as the food was great My main complaint would be the jet ski/turtle people on the beach who pester the hell out of you and the hotel doesn't seem to do enough in my opinion to stop this from happening. The staff as per other reviews are fantastic and always greet you with a smile. The evening entertainment from various singers and a saxophonist was very good but sometimes ended a little prematurely. Overall very nice stay and good value for money, restaurants outside the hotels are generally very expensive so All inclusive is a good option.More
A little bit of paradise.
We stayed here celebrating our silver wedding anniversary & couldnât have been happier. From the moment we arrived, to the time we left we were spoilt & pampered. They really do mean RELAX when they say it. The booking in was done whilst you relax with a refreshing towel & a cocktail & a bit of breeze to cool you down. It was easy, pleasant & straightforward. Being part of the Elegant Hotels you get a pass which will allow you to use the free water taxi to visit 3 of the other sister hotels along the west coast. You can also dine (by reservation) at these hotels too. We also had vouchers to use at the onsite spa (which is a must when you stay, its beautiful) It's an all-inclusive hotel & the nice thing is you donât have to wear those horrible bands around your wrist. Everyone is the same so you donât need to be waving your bright band around. Silly but this has always been a pet hate of mine. The hotel has a relaxed atmosphere which was why we chose it. The dÃ©cor is fresh & tasteful. We had a room overlooking the sea, it was absolutely beautiful, more than big enough with a sofa & plenty of storage space. Very quiet & efficient air conditioning & ceiling fan. However, by far the best thing about this room was the balcony with the beautiful views, a perfect place to sit, relax (thereâs a lot of this) enjoy a cocktail & watch the sun set right in front of you. It was from here we saw a Humpback Whale swim past. Breakfast is buffet style served in the Seascape restaurant by the sea. Itâs open to the elements at the sides allowing a nice breeze. You will soon learn that once you have food on your plate to take it in turns to go to the food bar, there are plenty of cheeky birds that will pinch stuff off your plate given the chance! They donât cause an issue though, they are easily shooed away & if there is someone sat at your table they will just watch you! There is plenty of choice for breakfast, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, meats & cheeses, pancakes, omelettes (cooked to order) & the usual British cooked breakfast as well as porridge & then cakes! The beach is peaceful as there are no other hotels around you tend to get the beach to yourself. Itâs beautiful & the sea really is turquoise! The beach attendant (feel bad for not remembering his name) is brilliant & is happy to sort you out a bed in the shade or the sun depending on where you prefer. There is not a problem with people putting their towels down, there are plenty of beds to go around anyway (well there was when we were there) If you wonder up the beach you may be lucky enough to spot the monkeys The water sports are all free apart from jet ski. There will be a few people offering Jet ski for hire & a few offering a couple of hours to swim with the turtles. We tried just about everything & loved it. When we went out on the kayak we were lucky enough to see turtles naturally swimming around. There is plenty to see if you just snorkel from the beach & make sure you go out on the hoby with David, heâs a great sailor & mini tour guide. Lunch you can choose to eat buffet style at the Seascape restaurant or use the coffee shop which does fabulous salads, sandwiches or paniniâs. This is where we eat every day bar one & can highly recommend it. Dinner is either at the Seascape or over the road to the other adult only part of the hotel Shiso which is Asian dining. We tried both & both were lovely. The evening entertainment was quite relaxed which I much prefer & not too overpowering. You were able to enjoy a quieter atmosphere out on the deck if you preferred. The Spa (on the adult only side) was lovely, again very relaxing & the treatments most enjoyable we had several different treatments whilst there & all were wonderful. There are two pools & I surprise myself now because I didnât use either of them during my entire stay! The beach & the sea was so lovely I didnât manage to drag myself away from it. The staff, well where do I start! They were all so friendly, smiley & welcoming. The service was without fault & they really do spoil you rotten. From bringing you cooling flannels whilst lying on your sunbed by the beach to fetching something for you from a different restaurant or bar area, when you could just as easily have got it yourself! RELAX they say & thatâs exactly what we did! There are no shops close by this hotel itâs in a residential area, but you can easily jump on a bus that stops just outside the hotel & ride either south to Bridgetown or north to Holetown should you need your fix. We chose to spend a day with âSam The Manâ & toured the island (but thatâs another review) This hotel really is a little bit of paradise. Perfect for a get away from it all & RELAX type holiday. Would I come back? Tomorrow if I could! Highly recommended. Thank you to all at Waves, to Kim & her wonderful team.More
Brilliant hotel and staff
We visited in late September 2016, with a 19 & 21 year old for ten nights. From the minute you walk into the the reception, the view and the welcome blow you away , Jackie is an absolute star and nothing is too much trouble. There are amazing glass bowls that have been moulded into different pieces of wood, I wish they had been for sale, totally unique, in the communal area. The staff are just first class here, never had such superb service and welcome anywhere, Kenrick on the bar and his team are awesome, even after the second day, they knew what drinks we wanted , before we ordered . The water sports team were brilliant and took us out waterskiing every day, a great all inclusive perk. The food in Seascape was very good , a different menu every evening, served to you most nights, buffet 1 or 2 nights a week . Breakfast and lunch served here too, eggs cooked to order, everything fresh and tasty, lunch always had some sort of meat joint or fresh fish cooked in front or carved to order. The fusion restaurant Shiso, across the road was first class, the menu did not change much during our stay, but there were pleanty of things we wanted to try anyway . All four of us made use of our spa vouchers and had lovely relaxing treatments, our daughter and I upgrading to a more expensive ones, Kathyann and Rhea were excellent, giving the body and facial massages we enjoyed. The nightly entertainment was ok, we had a dance most nights, but it was very slow, easy listening music until a few songs before the end , before they speeded it up and you could have a boogie. The musicians were all very good , but felt they had been asked to keep it low key. On the last night however, the band ramped it up a little and the whole place was up dancing, we had the chefs pulled out the kitchen, security guards and bar staff all having a boogie, which was fantastic to see , as they are the stars of the show at this hotel and make it what it is. We had an issue with a large group booking, a business group of around 30, from another island. One early morning around 2am ,one young man banged on my daughters door , asking for someone else. Had her cousin not been in the adjoining room , it could have been quite frightening. The staff the next day had words & we were not troubled again, but not sure such large groups work in such a small hotel, as they tend to take over. We stayed in an ocean front room and would choose the same one again, to go to sleep with the sound of the ocean and wake up to it, was a wonderful experience. We would definitely recommend and return .More
We have been coming here for many years and visited last September following the acquisition by The Elegant Group.Last year was great but i have to say this year the service was even better. From the manager right through the whole team the priority is to make the guests welcome. It is difficult to name staff that need a special mention because this would be unfair on all the others. Food was excellent from breakfast throughout the day until dinner. Well done to Kim and all the team.More
