The waves is a really nice place to stay. Nice big room friendly staff. Only downside, if you have a lowerd car do not park at the underground carpark. My car hit the driveway with such force it broke my power steering rack

Like: large spaces, nice view of the bay, kitchen and bathroom. Didn’t like: not having a power point for laptop under the desk, no desk chair and bed was uncomfortable for me.

It was excellent. Check in time was 2.00pm. But 10.00am we got a phone call from Caroline (very kind, very helpful lady also she gave us lot of information about the activities happening in the Island) saying that our room is ready and we can check in any time. We had a very happy relaxing holiday...
