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.

First Time Visit
Dates of stay: 3/13/17 - 3/18/17 Guests: 2 adults The facilities were clean and new. The staff was the most friendly and helpful group of people we have ever encountered in our over 19 years of travelling. We had an oceanfront view and it was lovely. The food was good as they had fresh eggs in the morning and someone cooking pasta/pizza and/or burgers upon request during lunch. Great for couples on honeymoon, looking to just relax and rejuvinate at the spa. Some important things to note: You can take the bus to and from Holetown, Bridgetown, etc. It is not necessary to pay for a taxi to and from; we did not know about the bus until later in the week and taxi's were costly. The tour that includes half day at Mt. Gay distillary and Harrison's Cave is more like a 5-hour tour and they do not serve food. The Cliff restaurant is VERY pricey and only worth it for special occasions (our bill was about $600 USD incl a bottle of wine for 2 of us). The Tides was a bit less expensive ($400 USD) but better food for us. The "Flavors of Barbados" dinner and show was nice but the food portion was skimpy and not really worth the cost. The hotel does not have food options after 10pm and that was a bummer for people who are up late at night. Breakfast needs a bit more variety as I requested turkey bacon and they did not have anything like that. It was literally pork bacon and this odd scrapple type of sausage every day. Lastly, and quite important to note....the beach is VERY rocky. I mean, it's a small beach and there are ALOT of rocks that actually hurt your feet. You have to wear water shoes and swim out a bit to actually get away from the rocks. I don't swim so I could not really enjoy the water near the beach. Overall, we would return to the Island as the "West Side", where this hotel is located, is more upscale and nice. We likely will try a sister property next time for a better beach experience.More
Circle of excellence trip Reflexis
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!!! More
Wonderful relaxing friendly exceptional hotel
We stayed here for 10 days in February. In general, we don't tend to return to hotels; there are so many out there, and they can be 'just another hotel'. But not here! 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 a bit more for a junior ocean view suite. Simply gorgeous. Beautifully decorated, lovely bathroom, mini bar, small but adequate balcony & breathtaking sunsets. Besides the wonderful Caribbean Ocean there are 2 pools. The Serenity pool (across the road - which wasn't a problem) is well named. Beautiful, well maintained pool surrounded by wonderful trees & plants creating an atmosphere of 'serenity'. Here, is also the lovely spa. I'm a girl who likes a spa treatment now and again and I couldn't fault this experience. Its nice that spa vouchers are included in your stay. There are also 2 restaurants on site, both of which we found excellent. However, given we were staying for 10 nights, we decided one night to utilise the 'dine around' facility and go to one of the sister hotels for dinner. We did have a superb meal, beautifully served in wonderful surroundings. But, when we got in the taxi to return to Waves, we said how good it had been but we were happy to be going 'home to Waves'. A hotel is so much more than its facilities, its decor, and its food. The difference at Waves is its staff. From the first impressions created by the front desk staff who welcome you in, and who deal seamlessly with any requests or problems, to the restaurant staff who always have a smile and are ready for a friendly chat and a laugh to the maintenance staff who clean the rooms. Every single member of staff seems to be happy to be there, no matter how busy they are and this happiness nurtures a wonderful warm welcoming family like atmosphere which is immediately apparent. This along with the great facilities and the Caribbean of course, makes staying here a wonderful experience. I simply can't wait to go back.More
Excellent - 5 star service
We stayed here in February for 8 nights. It exceeded our expectations. The staff were very helpful and friendly throughout, particularly Ondre who served the drinks on the beach. The beach did get slightly crowded but the sea was perfect, it will help on the beach if they are able to put the sun loungers further up the beach which is what they said they were trying to do. The water sports guys were amazing, our daughters took full advantage of these and they could not of been more helpful and patient with them - 5 stars for these guys. We ate at both restaurants and our friend who travelled with us had a shrimp allergy and they were very accommodating in ensuring that nothing was cooked in shrimp oil for her. The Asian restaurant was very good with a great variety. We particularly liked the lunches more than the dinners, if we were here for 2 weeks then we probably would get quite bored of the menu. The water taxi service that is offered between the various elegant resorts is fabulous and its great to get a change of scenery and see the other resorts or just sail up and down the ocean! We caught the reggae bus into Bridgetown and into Holetown, great service that stops right outside the hotel. A fabulous supermarket is also within walking distance of the hotel. The reason that I chose Waves was that the rooms looked fabulous and it had been renovated - this did not disappoint, we had an ocean front suite and it was perfect, lots of space, lovely balcony, we had our daughter with us and there was plenty of room. The overall decor of the hotel was very relaxing and although it was busy with plenty of clients you never felt like it was overcrowded. There were lots of extra's like Yoga, cocktail making classes and these were fun if you wanted to do them. The service at the bar was fast and they would make you anything that you wanted. This was our first visit to Barbados and it will not be our last and I would not bother staying anywhere else now that I have discovered Waves. Children are not allowed in the large pool but our's were over 14 years of age and they were allowed, just not small children. Many thanks to all the staff for a fabulous stay!More
Return to Waves
Just returned from 10 nights at Waves after last visiting about 8 years ago. We had a wonderful time, met some lovely people, everyone was so friendly, the staff were exceptionally courteous and gave very good service. The hotel has been refurbished and everything about it, rooms, food, drinks etc are excellent. We had an ocean view suite, loads of space and beautiful view .Many thanks to you all for a very relaxing break. More
