Fabulous 8.8 From 15 reviews

Good 6.0
Bit disappointed.
We thought we had booked a room with a little bit of space but unfortunately we were told that the balcony was the sitting area. Also we were not happy about the work that was going on right by the pool. Having complained they did stop working but we did continue to look at the concrete and scaffolding all week. Shame, as it’s a lovely small hotel, away from the busy area and the staff including Menzies are really nice.

Exceptional 10.0
Great Views, Modern & Clean
The hotel is very new and has modern facilities which is very rare for the area. Every room has a sea view and is great for watching the sunset right from your balcony. The manager made us feel very welcomed and helped arrange for water sports at the nearby beach. Don’t go to Jungle Beach, it sounds cool but is over crowded and dirty. Go to the beach where Hally Banana - the Water Gate’s sister hotel is. It’s a much nicer beach. But stay at the Water Gate, it’s much newer and more modern!
