This was our second visit in a month! We enjoyed it so much the first time that when an opportunity for a last minute break came up, we tried to find somewhere 'like Watergate bay'.. And couldn't so came back here - and we weren't dissapointed. The facilities for the kids, the kids clubs, meals and pool mean the kids... More

This was my first trip to a UK beach with the my family. While the location and views from the hotel are outstanding, service leaves a lot to be desired. There is a general sense of "you should be happy we're serving you" attitude and for a hotel that brands itself as a family hotel, it's anything but. From the... More

Marvellous hotel with a great position and amazing views over the bay. The rooms and the Living Space were very comfortable and hard to tear yourself away.The service was excellent, the staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The swim club was an added bonus. The breakfasts were the best and we were spoilt for choice with very... More

This is our third visit to Watergate Bay Hotel, and each and every time we have made memories to last a lifetime. This time I treated my daughter to one of the rooms with one of the freestanding baths in the window. It was worth every penny. We slept with the curtains open as waking up to the view each... More

Stayed at the Watergate for the third time, in April. It's a superbly thought out hotel and the perfect location. Lots of cute little touches and a very relaxing vibe. If I had to quibble the pool is a bit small, there's no sauna, and it's a bit too 'child friendly'. Our room was delightful with a sea view but... More

My partner won a raffle back in December which was a two nights stay in watergate bay and a surf lesson with extreme academy for both of us. We decided that may would be a perfect time for us and booked it straight away. We both relaxed as soon as we stepped into this amazing hotel and made very welcome... More

Absolutely loved it here, without a doubt one of the loveliest hotels for families we've reached visited. The staff were really approachable & couldn't help enough. The hotel had the perfect balance between families & couples needs, catering for both superbly. The restaurants were fantastic along with all the other amenities at the hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again!
