This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting on the bay. Food is good, service is excellent, rooms are first class and the whole environment is relaxed, classy with a laid back vibe. The pool is small but good. You have the option to take the kids for a free surfing lesson and there are great restaurants on site,... More

Stayed in early August with teenagers and a 5 year old. We were planning to stay half board but found that eating in the Living Space suited us better. The kids club was amazing and kept our daughter well entertained and gave us time with our older children. Rooms were spacious and clean, food was good, staff excellent and views... More

We visited in early July for 5 nights with friends from Canada we both have young families. It was a superb break with the hotel providing everything required for the adults to relax knowing the children were having fun when not with us in the kids club that they all loved! The staff in there are great. We booked the... More

We love this hotel! This is our fifth visit and it was as excellent as ever. The views are just magnificent. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The food is exceptional in both the Living Space and the Restaurant. The infinity pool is just amazing! This visit I took the opportunity to visit the spa for a body massage... More

Location fabulous and facilities all good as usual. Room prices do not really match quality for other hotels at this price though (no fancy toiletries, no a la carte table service at breakfast, old style connection for iPhone speakers in room etc...). All minor points but makes you think when you come to pay the bill. You are paying for... More

Everything at hand for a memorable holiday. Without exception the quality of all the facilities was perfect and the bedding was of a particularly high standard. Can't think of anything that anyone would have wanted for breakfast that was not available at the breakfast buffet. Children's facilities well located with plenty to occupy them. All the staff were well trained... More

I have been coming to this fantastic hotel since I was a child. I am now lucky enough to be able to bring my three young sons. It never disappoints! Food always excellent, rooms clean and luxurious. We have already booked to come back in May!

Despite it being the middle of school holidays and also a Boardmasters music festival, we still received the excellent service we have become accustomed to at this hotel. The staff, facilities and atmosphere is second to non in our opinion and this remains one of our favourite places to stay. Food quality in the slight cheaper Living Space is excellent!... More

Having spent many happy holidays at Watergate Bay, both in the hotel and in other accommodation using the bar and restaurants at the hotel, we have watched it's genesis from laid back, slouchy and relaxed to plastic wrapped nursery creche. The latest incarnation of the restaurant, Zacry's, is so child friendly and wipeable, it has no soft surfaces to absorb... More
