On arrival at the Watergate Bay Hotel I knew this was going to be special. We had booked a double room with a view of the beach which was stunning. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely clean and spacious and had everything we needed, including a small balcony and a huge roll top bath. The bathroom had a large... More

Just returned from a one night stay to cekebrate a special occasion. The location is great for surfing, water sports and walking. There is very little else to see or do other than the very exspensive restaurants. The hotel is decorated well, in a modern beach scene, it is family friendly to the extent that very loud children are everywhere... More

We've been here as a couple, as a new family with a baby and now with a toddler. The staff are outstanding and super helpful and the Kids Zone gives you the chance to have a peaceful meal minus the small noisy people in the fabulous Zacrys Bistro. The rooms are gorgeous as are the complimentary toiletries. I can't rate... More

Had a great weekend even though the weather wasn't so great. Had a family suit - main bedroom, big bathroom and smaller bedroom off with bunk beds. Ate in the beach hut one night with the whole family and out to Fifteen the next for adults only, both great but very different, will review separately. Hotel provided a babysitter in... More

We had high expectations about our stay at Watergate Bay Hotel and we were really disappointed to find that although we had booked a seafacing room our room which was on the 1st floor looked onto a wooden fence. However, the booking manager managed to move us the next day and the view was great. Besides this hiccup, the staff... More

This is the perfect hotel for a young family who enjoy a good quality hotel, a fantastic beach on your doorstep and great quality food. There is a pool with a fab views of the beach, and a spa with treatments. Decked terraces can be found around the hotel to chill out, with food served in a relaxed bar and... More

As renovations go... it didn't appear to need much from the gallery on the site...... but boy have they done this location proud!!!.. if you are looking for some downtime... you wont do much better than a windy walk along the stunning beach and then back to the Residents lounge and bar where the most difficult choice you'll have to...
