A wonderful few days and I can see WGB becoming a strong family favourite. Staff are top quality, well-trained, friendly, welcoming and professional. The food was incredible and the whole place has been thought out very well. It was our first trip away with our baby and they made us feel relaxed, welcome and cared for. We loved it!

Never have I stopped anywhere that's welcomed our dog and not just tolerated her. Lovely friendly and attentive staff. Comfortable and clean room and excellent location. Breakfast was amazing and food in the Living Space and The Beach Hut was yummy and not extortionate. I cannot wait to return!

We stayed here to see polo on the beach. Hotel is awesome - really cool beach theme, spacious bar over looking the sea, restaurant serves amazing food and super considerate of allergies. Friendly staff and made to feel really welcome. It's dog friendly which is an added bonus! Highly recommend

Decided to stay at the hotel the weekend of the Aspal beach horse polo, so we would have a VIP view from the balcony. I must admit this was fabulous, however, there were people staying at the campsite up the road that had come into the bar area, so maybe we unnecessarily paid for a room for the evening for...

Hello Wennie-Woo84, Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. It's great to read your comments about our staff and we hope you enjoyed watching the polo. However, we are really disappointed that Zacry's did not live up to expectations, nor the bedroom, and we are looking to address this through the feedback you gave us directly....

We've just returned from our second Taste of the Bay break. We booked a family suite - bunk beds in a separate room adjoining ours. Beautifully decorated room & indeed the entire hotel. Spotlessly clean throughout. The offer allows you to eat in each of the three restaurants - Beach Hut, Zachary's & Fifteen - we took full advantage of...

Well appointed modern hotel in a great location. Easy access to a great beach. Very nice rooms,very clean,extremely well appointed. Loved the facilities especially the pool. Would have preferred to have the option of being able to go the bar and order drinks directly - we did have to wait what seemed a rather long time to receive our drinks...
