Absolutely loved this hotel! I had emailed them to say it was our first anniversary and they upgarded us to a seaview room free of charge with a balcony. We ate in Zachry's in the evening and they brought over a glass of bubbles to the table which was a nice touch. The room was lovely and amazing to hear...

Having had a wonderful stay for my sisters 60 th, we returned for a two day break with friends and had an equally great time. The rooms were fabulous, the top rooms have beautiful freestanding baths overlooking the beach. We ate breakfast in the hotel and it is a fantastic experience! The lounge has the most incredible windows with views...

we really enjoyed the taste of the bay break although there was a lot of food! We are expecting our first baby so were in good company and were impressed by all the child friendly features. Our front facing room was quite small and only had half a see view but we weren't in the room that much so we're...

This is the perfect place for a get-away-from-it-all relaxing break. We booked one of the modern sea-view rooms, with a good view of the surf. The beach house theme is beautifully done, with gorgeous design features which we loved. But the piece de resistance is definitely the lounge down in the pool area. Its views of the bay are to...

Deal which includes dinner is very worthwhile. Excellent food and service at dinner. Breakfast good and staff dealt well with some customer squabbles over tables. There were, however, some very annoying children whose family allowed them to run around the tables constantly and to fetch plate after plate of food. This aside, we enjoyed our stay. We have pften eaten...

So nice to be expected and greeted with a smile and friendly welcome at reception - we arrived early and did not expect our room to be ready - we were telephoned shortly to be told room was ready and our case already there. The facilities at Watergate are first class and the staff all seemed to be enjoying working...

Went with a four year old and friends with two children and a dog, Hotel was great, kids club gave us some free time and the swimming pool as the sea was a bit cold for swimming at this time of year. You can almost fall out of bed onto the beach it's such a short walk. Great G&T in...

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. From the moment I arrived I just had the most fantastic experience doing Taste of the Bay! The rooms were lovely and the highlight was the cozy lounge looking out to the beach and of course the infinity pool. The hot tub was a welcome daily routine before brilliant brekkie and Zachrys. I really can't fault anything...

We came to Watergate Bay for 6 nights with 3 children and a dog and had the best family holiday ever! We actually managed to completely relax and also get some much needed kid-free time - something that normally just isn't possible on holiday with 3 kids! Watergate Bay thought of everything - spaces for kids to chill out, fantastic...
