Wherever you sit in this fantastic hotel the view is exquisite. The restaurant and bar are excellent as is the infinity pool. The hotel is family friendly. Rooms are decorated beautifully. Fridge in room is a great extra. Super comfortable bed.

This was our second visit in a month! We enjoyed it so much the first time that when an opportunity for a last minute break came up, we tried to find somewhere 'like Watergate bay'.. And couldn't so came back here - and we weren't dissapointed. The facilities for the kids, the kids clubs, meals and pool mean the kids...

This was my first trip to a UK beach with the my family. While the location and views from the hotel are outstanding, service leaves a lot to be desired. There is a general sense of "you should be happy we're serving you" attitude and for a hotel that brands itself as a family hotel, it's anything but. From the...

This is our third visit to Watergate Bay Hotel, and each and every time we have made memories to last a lifetime. This time I treated my daughter to one of the rooms with one of the freestanding baths in the window. It was worth every penny. We slept with the curtains open as waking up to the view each...

Stayed at the Watergate for the third time, in April. It's a superbly thought out hotel and the perfect location. Lots of cute little touches and a very relaxing vibe. If I had to quibble the pool is a bit small, there's no sauna, and it's a bit too 'child friendly'. Our room was delightful with a sea view but...

Absolutely loved it here, without a doubt one of the loveliest hotels for families we've reached visited. The staff were really approachable & couldn't help enough. The hotel had the perfect balance between families & couples needs, catering for both superbly. The restaurants were fantastic along with all the other amenities at the hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again!
