Parador de Aiguablava
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Begur
Reviewed August 11, 2012

This was the third Parador that we visited on our recent trip to Spain, and it had a very different feel to the others. It was much busier with lots of families staying here. However the location, on a small headland between two little bays is spectacular. However there are very few bars, cafes and places to eat outside of the parador. I was pleased that we had stocked up on beers and snacks on the way, which we enjoyed whilst relaxing on the balcony! The coastal paths are well worth exploring.

i wasn't sure about a new building parador. it should be old. this was fabulous. overlooking the med, rooms that are huge, balconies, quiet and a fabulous restaurant on site as well as one on the beach next door. the staff was somewhat reserved but highly professional. the rooms were comfortable, the baths excellent, the entire place spotless. the setting, next to begur, was as peaceful as could be and afforded easy access to all the small towns and beaches up and down the coast. would stay here any time.

Room Tip: rooms on one side face the open sea, on the other a beautiful inlet

The location is amazing, the sea with a rocky coast on one side and a sheltered sailboat- filled cove on the other. The 60s style decor is fun and flawless. There are many public places to enjoy the view or have a glass of wine, and don't miss the 2nd restaurant which is practically on the beach. Breakfasts were good and dinners okay, not fancy but sufficient. Staff was helpful, rooms were clean and comfortable. This is a great place for day trips up the coast or to hang out by the pool and take in the view. Very pleasant and relaxing spot.

This parador is situated on a cliff by the sea with a beatiful view of the Mediterranean. Rooms are spacious, All with a balcony. Rooms with even numbers face the south-west with view of the ocean and with morning sun, those with odd numbers face towards the north-east with a view of the bay and the nearby small village, and you can enjoy the evening sun. The fascilities are clean, and the arkitekturen and interior decoration very nice and tasteful. There is a beatiful pool area. Although it was fully booked while we where there it did not feel crowded at all. We have already booked our next stay.

What a fantastic setting here! Many rooms overlook the ocean, as well as terrace for lunch, and dinner dining. Other reviews made many negative comments about the food, but we found the food very good and up to the quality of other paradores. There is a restaurant in the paradore as well as one on the small beach below...both were great! There is a nice path to a small beach and around the small bay for a nice walk. We found this a great place to rest after the hustle of Barcelona and before our trip to the cities of Provence.

The hotel is situated on a headland above the (very) small resort of Aiguablava. Our room, overlooking the bay, was large, clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was perfectly adequate but we never dined in the hotel at night - too expensive.
The hotel is well situated for touring round the Costa Brava, but if wanted a lazy day then there is a small pool and sun loungers, or else you could walk down the steps to the pretty cove and beach. As others have said though, it's very quiet at night, we played cards in the bar area, so were quite happy; but there is absolutely nothing to do in the hotel or in Aiguablava at night.
One final thing - watch out when you check out if paying with credit card. Without saying anything they charged in GBP (at a very favourable rate to themselves) rather than in Euros, although the total at the bottom of the bill was in Euros. I didn't spot this until I got home and after complaining we have been offered a largish discount off oour next stay in Aiguablava; the trouble is taht I don't suppose we'll ever go back there.
