  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We just returned from our trip to Waves and we are already trying to figure out when we can go back! The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to meet all of our wants and needs. The property was the perfect size, not too big, and not too small. The hotel was very clean; the decor was perfect, a Carribean beach vibe. We arrived Christmas Day and stayed through New Years and they had different activities planned for each day, both day and night events. The food was wonderful and each day offered different menus so we never got tired of the food. My family and I had a wonderful trip and were all very sad to leave, but as they told us “we have to leave so we can come back.” And we definitely will

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Great for romance. Not for partiers.

    Excellent overall. Nowhere’s perfect tho. Very quiet, small boutique hotel. All closed up by 11. No food after 9. 1 restaurant. 1 coffee shop. 1 bar. Two piece karaoke entertainment. Great food and drinks including house wine that’s actually drinkable. No Top shelf liquor tho. Great service. Charged $75 for a late checkout. That kinda felt nickel and dime. For a quiet, romantic honeymoon? Perfect! If you’re looking to party? No way!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Positives: 1) Location: great sunsets, water calm enough to swim in, decent beach size 2) Product: the rooms are solid. Good beds, bathrooms with good pressure and space, balconies with drying lines for towels, black out curtains to sleep in, linens are nice 3) Service: my island experiences have been mixed in the past. People here are warm and welcoming in general with little exception. They have a General Manager's cocktail where managers spend a couple of hours circulating to talk to guests...very nice tough and the staff seems engaged. Front desk staff was professional and friendly, bartender was efficient and witty, service staff in the restaurant was on a lower level performance wise (forgetting things or having head down trying to avoid eye contact) but still friendly, beach and pool servers friendlier than F&B service which is rare and was very nice to see, water sports typically the worse in most islands but this group was very nice to deal with. Cons: 1) Food quality: We were very disappointed with food in general. When we returned last night we asked ourselves honestly if there was anything memorable from the food experience and the answer was a clear no. The Seascape restaurant is the main issue. While the location is nice on the water, the birds jump on the table during breakfast and literally pick food off your plate. The hot food was a bit flavorless and presented poorly. Salad / cold bar was nicer than expected. Live station is slow and lacks choices.

    Heavenly Honeymoon

    We came to waves on our honeymoon! It was a great place to stay. The building is very well maintained and cleaned all the time. The furniture was particularly nice in the common areas, beach and in the rooms, all very new and clean feeling. The beach is incredible, no rocks, lots of chairs With cushions and umbrellas, clean clear water. The water sports were a perk! We paddle boarded regularly, tubed and snorkeled a lot. The common areas are beautiful nice decks and tables/ couches. Drinks were fantastic and they took your order from the beach, all wait staff was fabulous and we enjoyed seeing their familiar faces. Very special and quaint feeling, not a mega resort. Cool to use this taxi to go to the other resorts just to check things out. Would recommend and would go back!!

    What a great hotel for its price point! Beach chairs laid out every morning on the pristine, calm beach front. Friendly staff. Kayaking, paddle board, snorkeling and other water spots included. The 2 restaurants served up some delicious food, especially the adults only Asian fusion restaurant. The rooms are all upgraded on the family side of the resort, and the pool on the adults only side is quiet and at under amazing trees. The highlight is being able to take the water taxi between Elegant hotels other 3 hotels on the west coast and dine and use those amenities as well!
