Beautiful location, great rooms. It's like everything in the hotel is an extension of the sea and the beach. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is great, whichever option you take. Breakfast at Fifteen, Dinner in The Beach Hut, snacks in the Living Space. An early morning swim in the pool before it gets busy is a must. If... More

By far my favourite place to eat and relax in the south. The atmosphere is so relaxing and everyone is so friendly. Stunning views and the best place to take in the sunset. Food is glorious and the service really does stand out.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough. A gorgeous, luxurious and homely stay. We were celebrating a special occasion and the staff in Zacry's did lots to make it feel like a really special occasion. Wonderful facilities and super friendly staff. The ambience of the hotel is relaxed and calming- all in all, a perfect place for a break. Thank you too... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to an overnight stay after staying in Falmouth for a few days. We arrived early and had a lovely lunch while waiting for our room to be ready. Staff there... More

I had a facial with Antonia and it was the most wonderful experience, well worth the money. Very relaxing.just the best treatment I've ever had! The waiting area was stunning, and overlooked the sea. Breathtaking view and nicely furnished We ate in the more informal of the two restaurants, and again it was of the highest quality. This is a... More

Watergate Bay is stunning, and the hotel makes the most of the views with well-appointed and well-designed public spaces - especially, the bar, spa and various outdoor terraces. The team has also made an effort to create a friendly, relaxed atmosphere - and they've succeeded. Anyone, of any age, will quickly feel at home. But they're not big on cleanliness.... More
