Just booked my 3rd visit to Watergate Bay hotel. Love having a glass of bubbly in the hot tub overlooking Watergate Bay. This is such a relaxing venue with 3 amazing restaurants on site or nearby and an amazing beach. Cannot wait to visit again.

We participated in the 'cardio cycle' class today which absolutely fabulous. Zachary's & The Beach Hut are great places to eat, couldn't fault service & food. Breakfast at the hotel is...

We chose a sea view better room this time and it was excellent. The hotel, restaurants and swim club (treatments) were as good this time as last and we really relaxed. Plenty of activities available for those that wanted more sport. The weather was cold, fresh, windy and wet at times, but that didn't deter surfers or the Thundercats racing...

Pool and Hot tub fantastic changing rooms are something else! Although a warning if you want to use the Hot Tub it is a short walk outside, as it...

Again, we have had a wonderful holiday at Watergate Bay Hotel. Visiting so frequently we know which rooms we like so we had our usual room which after the recent refurbishment is very stylish and comfortable. It's nice to see a hotel keeping things up to scratch rather than banking the money and letting the hotel decor slide. Breakfasts were...

My partner booked a night bed, breakfast and dinner as a birthday treat for me. We arrived early so my mobile no was taken so as to let us know when we could go into the room. We had a look around and enjoyed a wine at the local pub. An hour latter I received a phone call saying the...

We stayed here for 5 nights in an Ocean View suite. It was expensive but worth it as the suite was gorgeous with a beautiful freestanding bath in a bay window and a small seating area where we could put our feet up with a book or just gaze out to sea. The hotel is luxurious but with a laid...
