My husband and I have just spent 2 weeks of bliss at the Waves Hotel and Spa in Barbados. The hotel was immaculate, the rooms, communal areas and the pools.

I love it. Feels like home with all the beautiful refurbished wood furnishings. Very very clean hotel... everyone is so nice. Safe island to rent a car and explore :). Waves is their newest hotel here and they offer complimentary water taxi to visit their sister locations. Big bonus, water sports like water skiing is included :):)!!! Very chill trip.
