Came down over half term for 4 nights. There are so many great things about this hotel and yet some small details that for the money you'd expect to be perfect are not and let it down. Location is fantastic right on the edge of the beautiful bay and a minutes walk from the surf school and beach. Food is...

Family holiday to perfection. Watergate Bay Hotel knows how to cater for parents and children alike. Whilst the kids think it's a holiday for them it's actually a holiday for the parents! Luxury and quality in all areas of this beautiful establishment with stunning views and a fab sun terrace. Kids Club is great. And the CCTV kids monitoring service...

Perfect balance between sleek, modern and comfortable hotel, coupled with laid back beach vibe. Breakfast was excellent, as was the three course dinner included in the full board package. The surfing tuition at extreme academy was extremely thorough. I have had surfing tuition all over the world and this was far away the best! I don't normally write on tripadvisor...

The communal areas are great - spent the evening on the living area terrace watching the surfers and the sun go down - and the staff are brilliant. But the room isn't so good. We got a 'best' room with a sea view but the balcony is too small to sit out on and there was a ridiculous bath (that...

Second visit and with the new swimming-pool facility this is a hard place to beat! We stayed the one night and ate in Fifteen which has the most amazing views over the sea and is wonderful as the sun sets! The foods not bad either!! Next day we swam in the pool then headed out and hired wetsuits and body...

Just spent an excellent weekend here as a family group of 14. The decor is stylish whilst the atmosphere is welcoming. It is very family friendly with kids meals, play area, play room, swimming pool and use of an web cam baby monitor (so you can actually watch your little one go to sleep - not sure if it's available...

We wanted somewhere very special for our big day and Watergate Bay Hotel was the perfect choice! We got married on 3rd May and enjoyed looking out over the beautiful beach as we said our vows in front of close friends, family and our dog.

We just returned from a 3 night stay. This is a fabulous hotel and I can't find any fault with it. We stayed in a standard sea view room. Our balcony had a table and chairs or we could sit in bed looking out over the rolling sea. The room was quiet and very comfortable. We ate in the beach...

We chose to spend our 20th Anniversary at The Watergate Bay and were not disappointed. The hotel, room and facilities were all superb. The staff were friendly and couldn't have done more. The overall feel of the hotel is casual and beachy yet smart and classy at the same time. We were made to feel very welcome and relaxed and...
