“The Water Club Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We usually stay in the Borgata rooms but had an opportunity to stay at the Water Club so we booked it. It was very crowded checking in, but the lines moved pretty quickly and we were up in our room before check in time! The rooms are similar in size to the Borgata and the bathroom was pretty much the same, maybe some faucet fixtures were upgraded. All very clean and newer. The beds and bedding were very comfortable.

For a casino, I always feel very safe at this property. The hallways and elevators feel secure. The overall decor is modern and clean. The shops downstairs are very upscale.

This is a great get away and you'll love "sleeping in" at The Water Club!

For Valentines day two years ago, me and my boyfriend took a weekend trip to the water club in the Borgata. It was an amazing weekend. We wanted to go that weekend mainly because Aaron Lewis from Staind was performing. We decided to stay an extra night and made a whole weekend out of it. Of course it was fun gambling. The food was great, I forget what the restaurant was that we went to , but it was a steak restaurant and it was delicious. The room was big and pretty and clean. We had a corner room so we had two views. One being the Borgata side of the hotel which at night was lit up in purple and beautiful, and the other was the water and other hotels and at night when everything was lit up was really pretty! For some reason we never used the pools or anything but they looked really nice. There are so many shops and little cafe's and restaurants in this place. Its huge. And just really pretty. We cant wait to go back. We are hoping for this coming February!
We traveled two February's ago.

Room Tip: A higher room so you get the views!

Pros: We had a corner room on floor 25. Room 2596. The view was amazing we had actually two different views because we were in the corner. The room was huge with upscale amenities. The bed was plush and comfy. The decor was beautiful. I loved the bathroom shower. If you don't want to pay top dollars for the snacks don't touch because they along with the fridge has a timed sensor if touched more than 2 seconds or so you bought it.lol. We checked in on Sunday about 4:45 then we went to the pool area which was nice and got in the juccuzzi on the main floor. I wish we would've booked a spa treatment because the prices was affordable. We valet our car which was 10 a day but when we checked out since we had the rewards card it was only 5. Everyone was extremely pleasant to us. Once your in you don't have to leave just go over to the borgata for different restaurants or gambling or shows. We ate at the buffet which was great.

Cons...What we didn't like was they nickel and dime you for everything. The Internet was not free. You are not allowed to use the refrigerator with your own things. The bar at the pool was closed so we had to go out of that area with our swimwear on if we wanted a drink. Check in at 5pm but check out is at 11am. Housekeeping knocked on my door at 8:30 am on check out day. Then they were waiting at my door at 11 waiting for us to leave. It takes at least an half hr to get your car. The pool area close at 7 when check in was 5. I just felt like I was rushed and didn't get my money worth.

I would stay here again in a heart beat. I loved the view!

Room Tip: If you come earlier than check in time go to the pool area to relax in the pool or on the lounge cha...

The Water Club is my all-time favorite hotel. The staff is very helpful, the lobby and it's music tell you right away that you are being transported from daily worries to a place where you can be pampered and truly relax.
The view from the top rooms is phenomenal and can also be found at the pool in the spa.
The flat screen greets you with your name as you enter the room, the beds are so comfortable that I didn't want to get out and the desk offered a perfect place from which to use your computer (assuming you want to stay connected to the world!) The bathroom is large and the shower delightful. Robes are provided free of charge and are plush and comfy.
The main pool was nice although the room temperature was a bit cooler than I would have liked. It was beautiful with plants, trees, and a bit of water that sprinkles down, reminiscent of a rain shower. There are towels on the chairs when you arrive, another nice touch.
The spa was very soothing. I took advantage of a Swedish Massage special and the luxuries included. Private his/hers hot tubs that looked out over the water; lots of fresh water, fruit, and nuts; and use of the long pool with lounge chairs and a uni-sex hot tub.
The casino is nice, my problem is that the smoke permeates the Casino and more. Smokers smoked in the non-smoking sections as well. Perhaps better air filters or another adjustment could be made to make this hotel truly terrific!

Room Tip: the higher the floor, the better the view

If you want a great spa vacation, and none of the cheapness of Atlantic City, this is your place. Schedule a facial or a massage and spend the entire day on the two floors reserved for spa customers, complete with jacuzzi, lap pool (with gorgeous view), saunas, etc., etc. and NONE of the crowds and tastelessness of the gambling scene. At day's end, walk through the casino with blinders on to one of the many great restaurants that are part of the Borgata complex. You never need to go outside, never need to gamble. Just enjoy a great quiet and tasteful few days in the last place you'd ever expect to find serenity.

Room Tip: Choose a room with ocean view.

Stayed at the Water Club in Atlantic City in late August of 2012. My wife and I lucked out on the weather because it was 90 degrees and perfect pool weather. I must tell everyone, if you are looking to stay in a nice place to stay in Atlantic City, you will find NO other place nicer than the Water Club at the Borgata. I've personally stayed at almost every hotel that has a casino in it in AC and this place IS the nicest I've been to! The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. It also was very modern and had all of the lastest amenities. Check in was quick and the desk staff helpful. I really have no complaints about this place but just a few suggestions if you decide to stay here. First, if you plan on using the pool area, get there early. There are limited pool chairs and you may have to wait if arrive anytime later in the morning or afternoon. There is an indoor pool also and that seemed less crowded. Second, The Water Club's location is not near the famous AC Boardwalk. You will have to drive, take a taxi or the Jitney if you want to get there or the beach. It's not that far (maybe a couple of miles?) but far enough and too many major roadways to cross to make walking a viable option. The property in itself makes up for it's location in the Marina District. The Borgata is actually connected to the Water Club and that's where the Casino and all of Borgata's incredible restaurants are. All I can say more is...ENJOY and RELAX at the Water Club, it will NOT disappoint!

Room Tip: As always, get a room in a higher floor.

Stayed here in late July, as the weather was poor, the pool was closed. Proximity to the pool is supposed to be a plus for these rooms. Rooms are great, great bathroom. I would prefer to stay at Borgata but then again a pool scene means very little to me. My room was comped, not sure id pay 400. I'd rather pay 600-800 for a dope suite. Pillows were lumnpy.
