This is the 4th apartment that we have had, and, although it is still very good, no 33 feels a little cramped. Waves is a nice block with allocated parking spaces and a lift - all good for those of us with mobility issues. The flats are usually well equipped and clean. Some are Friday change days and some Saturday; some allow pets and others don't; some are sea view (premium priced) and others garden view - take your pick of what suits you. I am on Orange network and don't have a connection issue and the Wi-Fi was perfect. The Sky Sports was great too as the Test match was on!

Amazing stay at no 20.Fantastic weather as well! We preferred overlooking the garden rather than the car park and traffic at the front. We opened the French window in the evening to enjoy drinks-very peaceful and no traffic in sight! Apartment very clean, fresh & well equipped with every facility to make a perfect holiday.
We has not been to Watergate Bay since our children were small and it was as beautiful as ever, now with the added advantage of excellent eateries on the doorstep. We will most definitely return and hopefully to no.20.

Room tip: Stay overlooking the gardens for tranquillity.

Had an absolutely incredible week in Waves. We stayed in the Penthouse, Number 19 which had incredible views of the Bay.

Would definitely recommend it. Huge living area upstairs and great modern facilities. Sky was a bonus as stayed up to date with the tennis, football and cricket. Balcony is amazing too and we were blessed with some good weather which really topped the trip.

Downstairs, 2 bathrooms with nice bathroom facilities. The mattress was very comfortable and towels etc. supplied was all great quality.

The beach itself is incredible, and considering Watergate is just one Bay, the dining choices are fantastic with Jamie Oliver's, Beach Hut and WGB Hotel on the doorstep.

I guess the only set-back is the need to book early at most of the restaurants as it's such a popular spot these days and demand is huge- we got turned away 2 nights from the beach hut.

For curry fans, the Maharajah I. newquay is too drawer and only a £7 taxi so good option.

Overall a great holiday destination and we will certainly be back.

What a load of old nonsense. If you can't see that rock you shouldn't be on the road. What if that had been a child or dog. These people should go to Specsavers and get a life, The apartments are absolutely fabulous and so well run. The facilities are great and so clean. Watergate bay is a dream with it's beautiful beach and fantastic cliffs. Great walks and fun times.
We've been coming for years and always find so much to do. A visit to St Mawgan and the bonsai nursery and Japanese gardens. Don't forget to have a cream tea behind the post office.
Just 20 minutes away is Bedruthan Steps with the fantastic rock pools and caves.
We also pop across to Fowey for a day just 45 minutes in the car.
And for a change we take the bus to Padstow. The bus stops right outside Waves Apartments.
We are going back next month. Can't wait.

Room tip: All rooms are great but sea views best.

A very strong 4/5 score here - literally the only downside is that you don't have a sea view which is why it is not a 5. The price was also good for Newquay in the new year.

The apartment is stylishly decorated with all the mod cons you could ever want (dishwasher, washing machine, two TV's, DVD player and some classic DVD's, under-floor heating, a modern bathroom and more!).

Its in a great location for Newquay with its bustling nightlife and interesting shops, and Padstow for that more traditional Cornish feel and the are the bars and restaurants in Watergate bay (Fifteen, Watergate hotel etc..).

You are a two minute walk from the beach and coastal walks in every direction.

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to friends.
