Stayed here before cruising on the Royal Clipper. From our arrival until we left we were cared for in every way possible. We arrived quite late in the afternoon and were greeted with "don't carry your suitcases downstairs, you are on holiday, you don't need to do anything" and that sums it up. A welcome cocktail no not cheap fizzy...

This hotel had been newly refurbished having been taken over by Elegant Hotels group. Check in was absolutely first class.

We didn't know what to expect. On check-in, we were told by Ryan that our room was across the road in a separate building - mmm! Ryan said it would be great - mmm! He was right!!The room easily met our expectations, the complex had its own superb pool and restaurant /bar and was adults only. The main restaurant was...

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...

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!!!

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...

We stayed here over New Years first in a spa room which was very poor quality - tired, small rooms, doors which dont look and teeny showers. The biggest let down of all is having to cross a reasonable busy road, cross a car park to get to the rooms. Whilst not a huge problem, it does ruin the feeling....

We just came back from a wonderful stay at the Waves a couple weeks ago and it was amazing. The hotel is beautiful with elegant and modern design that is also very relaxing and immaculately clean. I just loved the atmosphere. We had one of the first floor rooms with ocean view and do not regret it. It was very...
