The drinks kept coming so after 4 of these we made our way out of the lobby...

We stayed at the waves hotel for a week in september, 2016 . It was an absolutely brilliant experience. The staff were incredible. The staff were more likely family to us. They made our experience 10 times better. Crystal, shari, Tanya, Jillian, chef Calvin and Jacqueline were the happy faces we would see everyday! The spa is beautiful and relaxing....

Have just spent a week at the Waves resort and it has been first class from arrival to departure.

Smiles are infectious!! The decor is modern and...

On the whole, a lovely, clean and friendly place to stay. Had an ocean view room which was modern, comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, a great view of the sunset and ocean and a quiet aircon. Food: one main restaurant, one pan Asian and a deli. Not as much choice as in larger all-inclusive resorts, we ventured out to eat twice...

Only one criticism food wasn't the best we've ever had, more variety possibly needed. Best beach we've been to on west coast, love the fact that you can always get bed on beach, or around pool. At any time of day. Lovely staff. Spotless hotel. Great service
