Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Watergate is a fairly new hotel with well appointed room interiors. Upon our arrival, when we opened the door to our room, we smelled the strong smell of insecticide. They must have sprayed it to contain the mosquitoes. We opened the windows and the smell of insecticide went away after a while, so it was no big deal anymore.

Cleanliness is ok. I killed a mosquito flying near the mirror by swatting it with my hand on the mirror. Throughout our stay of 3 days, the dead mosquito remained on the mirror unnoticed.

Breakfast is good. Although the buffet selection is small, it was sufficient. Made to order omelette is available and part of the breakfast.

Within the property, there is a massage place and also a convenience store.

this small hotel located in central butuan is particularly clean when it comes to their amenities. centrally placed alcohol dispensers. routine checks and cleaning is done throughout the property. this is very important during the pandemic. checkin times is a little long but they assure us that room is thoroughly checked and sanitised before we enter our room.

glad to see a clean and safe hotel during this times.

Watergate is a good place to stay with helpful staff and is quiet, although not far from the main road. The breakfast was good with some unusual dishes eg squid adobo, a change from omelette, corned beef and scrambled eggs. The dining room is rather small for the size of the hotel and so gets crowded - suggest early breakfast rather than late. I can recommend this hotel and will use it again.

Do not expect a a nice view on your room but the cleanliness is really good thanks to our housekeeper Jeffrey. I was a little not so impressed with the artificial palm trees and grass. Artificial plants are already outdated in the modern hospitality. The breakfast buffet is does not have a huge selection. Overall its an average stay.

the place has a nice ambiance, friendly crew, and very clean rooms, however, the rooms are small, that's why we booked for 3 rooms.

the food is great at Lime & Zest.

very well-cleaned hotel, I can see their staff always mopping/sweeping the floor.

We stayed in this hotel for 7 nights for a family visit. We stayed in the 1 st floor suite across the event center and near the pool. Every morning, you can hear screaming children running around the hallways and at night you can not sleep due to the loud thumping music coming from the event center. We complained to the hotel manager RE : the loudness of the noise in the building but, no one seemed to care..

Nice place in the city called Butuan. My friend brought me to this place. At first I thought it's small but soon as I went inside it was big. Very nice place! My kids enjoyed the swimming pool amenities. There are some shops outside which is very convenient especially the store. Will go back here.
