Last weekend I was treated to a weekend stay at the Watergate Bay Hotel by my wife on my Birthday .
My reaction on arrival was WOW !!
I have stayed in hotels that have fantastic locations on many occasions but often find that the hotels owners and staff rely heavily on the location to attract guests and can arrogantly fall short on the hospitality front.
The Watergate Hotel has both a location to be very proud of and a Staff to be even prouder off .
The standard of hospitality here was 5 star and I just loved the way the whole place had a freindly laid back , 'Take it Easy' atmosphere.
Our Room which was, as they describe, a better double had an amazing sea view and was larger than expected . the bedding and furniture was very nice and in keeping with the beach/Surfing theme .
Breakfast was superb and everyone was made to feel special as they entered the dining room .
5 star service was provided while i had my breakfast in shorts . tee shirt and flip flops !!
I often feel that an an expensive room in a hotel is a waist of money as most of my time is spent away from the Hotel but in the case of this Hotel i felt I got value for money as I could not find a reason to want to leave the tranquility of the place.
I was so comfortable in this hotel I was tempted into the spar and treatment rooms with my wife for some luxury treatments . Glad I did because the high standards carry through to this facility and the large Chill out room with its large picture windows looking down to the beach was just fantastic .
There were a few families with pre school children around the hotel which may bother a few guests but as far as I was concerned (who on this occasion left the kids at Home)this was not an issue and anyway there are pleanty of areas in the hotel to move to where it is very quiet and chilled .
Well done the Watergate Hotel hope to come back soon.
