We love this hotel and have now visited for the last 4 years and have booked again in a couple of months. Fantastic service, great rooms, beautiful location and very child friendly while still being a lovely place for adults. We came here before we had our daughter as well as after. Fantasic food and drink options too.

This was our second stay here having stayed last year and we enjoyed this visit even more. It is a lovely hotel with a shabby chic modern style that really suits the location. The rooms are great and our sea view best room was large and very nice and even had a large balcony. The food in the living space... More

This is how you do it. From the minute we walked in the door, until we left, we were looked after. We are staying in Watergate bay, not the hotel, and decided we'd try it for nibbles and drinks. We asked if it was ok to bring our dogs in, and it was a big smile, ''yes of course you... More

We have stayed here every year for the last 12 years and the whole experience of hotel, beach, pool, living space and associated activities such as the surf school and the beach hut restaurant slowly improve. This years extras? Refreshing flasks of water are provided without question. All the staff have clearly been asked to be nice to have the... More

The first thing that struck us when we arrived was the chaos in the entrance as it was check in and you are faced with a lift and stairs but it is not clear where you go as others agreed. Reception is on the next level and check in was smooth but since we were advised that the room was... More

This was a much needed 3 night break for our family (mum, dad, Lily (9), gran and coco the dog). We had a tough brief to fill and Watergate Bay Hotel did a good job of keeping us all pleased. Despite a couple of issues, we all enjoyed it immensely - the location is perfect and it's setting on the... More

We ate on the upper terrace of this Hotel after a lovely long walk on the beautiful beach. We don't normally do three course lunches and this was no exception. I ate an Asian salad with sticky prawns which were to die for, there were so many of them each of my three friends had one and I still had... More
