I spent a fantastic week at the escape hotel and spa in St James Barbados and it has made my wife and I fall in love with the island. The staff and the standard of accommodation is outstanding. The owners are the most helpful people i have come across in all my time of travelling the world. Simply an outstanding resort on the perfect island. It is ideal for couples and family alike and has a beach that allows you to sunbathe and swim without any of the usual hassle. We will be back again soon.
Having previously been to this hotel in 2008 we wanted to go back in Feb 2010 but were told by Virgin that the hotel refurbishment would not be completed before May 2010. We subsequently stayed at the Sea Breeze which is a little further south towards Bridgetown. During our holiday we took a power boat trip up the coast and the boat owner slowed down and pointed out The Waves hotel and the ongoing refurbishment works to me. It looked a complete building site with windows out and in a very sorry state. We would advise people to make sure this hotel is completely finished and up and running before making a booking. Our first visit to this hotel (Escape and Spa, as it was then called) was excellent and although the hotel was beginning to look a bit tired at the edges we had a fantastic holiday. If they can get this hotel back to the same, or better, standard as before then we will be pleased to return in the future without hesitation.…
Was due here on the 4th march, got told 3 days before still not open and only given Almond Beach as a "like for like" Went passed here on our journey to the ABV and it was still a building site probably at least another month at the rate they are going, although our rep stated it was going to be opened 10th march..... no chance so far!!! Come on Virgin get a grip and let people know with more notice please!!!
We booked this hotel in 2009. Were informed late December that renovation not complete and we were offered Turtle Beach as the only alternative. We drove past in Feb 2010. Spa side of road still a demolition site. Hotel side windows being fitted. Appears to be a long time before fit for habitation. Am amazed Virgin has not indicated this on their web site. It states renovated 2009!
