Convenience and Service
I enjoyed my stay at Watermark. It was really convenient for me to go to the beach and the shops. Food was really good at the restaurants and they have all the amenities needed so you don't have to go out of the hotel for spa and even haircut. I would stay at this hotel again.

I made a reservation for 3 adults in a superior king room - on the photos it showed that the room had a big king bed (which we got so nothing to complain about that) and a large single sofa bed. I have stayed at this hotel previously with the exact same sofa bed from the photo in the room hence I was sure that this sofa bed would be big and comfortable enough for an adult to sleep on. However, when I entered into the superior king room, there was a tiny one seater sofa pulled out into a tiny sleeping bag size bed in the room. The pillow were almost wider than the bed!! After a few comparison with the sofa bed on the photos of the superior king room, its confirmed, THEY WERE DIFFERENT! So I rang the reception and notified them of the tiny sleeping bag sized bed and they said there is only one type of sofa bed and that I had no other choice. After I told them that I have stayed with them before and have seen that they indeed have a bigger sofa bed, the lady changed her story and said because I had previously stayed at a room with a smaller bed thats why it could fit the bigger sofa bed. Long story short, I had to change to a smaller room (even though I had already paid for a bigger room) in order to get a bigger sofa bed, I wasn't able to get the bed shown in the photo. If this isn't FALSE ADVERTISING then I don't know what is! VERY UNHAPPY!! Their outdated swipe keycards also failed to activate the elevator (ALL 3 OF MY CARDS WERE USELESS!) Had to get the kind stranger in the elevator to press our floor button for us. Once we arrived on our floor, ALL 3 keys could not open our room door!! So we had to go all the way down to reception to activate our cards again, this time only1 out of the 3 worked! Overall, all I can say is, this is an outdated hotel, overpriced for what it offers and that photos are DECEIVING! the room wasn't very clean, the carpets were gross and the air con was useless. I WOULD NOT STAY THERE AGAIN!

Great location
I think the deluxe bathroom should have a separate shower. Also a small microwave would have been handy. Awesome having the trams on your doorstep.
