“Great hotel, close to beach”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Spacious hotel, great pool. Food plentiful and hot - only thing that we weren't keen on (not the hotel's fault) was the huge amount of wasted food on other guests' plates! Walking distance to lovely beach with rocky coves to sunbathe and swim. Very close to railway station 6+ euros return to Barcelona and lots of little villages along the way with weekly markets. Little stalls along the street in the evenings were fab. Evening entertainment great - especially the guy who sings just like Mark Knopfler!

We love the hotel and we will be back for the 6th time coz it only gets better. The staff are very helpful nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are clean and have all you want in them from shampoo, hair dryer to a mini bar. The hotel is convenient for all the amenities the beach and a train service just across the road. Food is excellent there is always somthing different every day and the resturant is run very smoothly by is manager and staff. There was different excellent entertainment every night which was excellent. Looking forward to next year.

My husband and I stayed here with a group of other couples for 3 nights in May 2011. The rooms are decently sized, and all of them appeared to have balconies. The beds were fine, but not overwhelmingly comfortable. The TV in the room was an older non-flat screen model. The walls were somewhat thin and we could hear the other guests showering in the morning. The hotel is located directly across the street from the Santa Susanna train station, so it is very convenient to take the train into Barcelona from there. Also, there's a nice promenade along the Mediterranean that is easy to access as well. We at breakfast and dinner at the hotel, and were not overly impressed with the food. It was fine and there was plenty of it, but the cuisine was not extraordinary. It's a decent place to stay if you're looking for a less-expensive option than staying in Barcelona.

Just come back from this Hotel, have been before and was aware that like most things they have had to make savings, but still really enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of all the staff. The food was just as good as before.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, none just overlook bad areas, I think you would be able to see the sea from...

The answer is simple- there is no catch! A friend and I have just spent 3 nights at the Aqua Onabrava and we were blown away. After finding the hotel last minute and at such a low price, we figured we would be getting the basics...nope! The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the location is amazing with stunning surrounding views. Staff are friendly and welcoming and the service within the hotel is outstanding. We paid for bed and breakfast only as we wanted to explore and try the surrounding local restaurants for our evening meal. The Saturday night was particularly busy along the strip as it was a local regular night out- it was refreshing to be mixing with locals on a night out rather than just more tourists such as ourselves. We did however find ourselves drawn to a few British bars and this was purely due to the amazing atmospheres within. JJ's is a bar just off the strip owned by Jeff and our personal face was the Drunken Ducklin Kareoke bar owned by a young guy named Jordan (his mum & stepdad own the Drunken Duck) These guys know how to make an epic night! Crazy crazy hilarious antics that had us laughing in there until closing time :)
All in all a FABULOUS weekend (only negative being that 3 nights is not enough!) my friend is returning next year with her children and I will definitely be venturing back very soon. What a beautiful little gem hidden in the coast of costa brava! : D

Very nice and elegant hotel, with clean rooms and new furniture.
An elegant lobby, where you can enjoy a good coffee or a drink from the bar, while listening to the piano.
Great food, very tasty and varied buffet, different every day. I liked most the fish and the sea food menu, and also the salad bar. The fruits and cookies too ...
Lovely garden and pool, music and games during the day, shows every night ... I enjoyed especially the flamenco night, while drinking a cup of sangria :)
Personnel very nice and polite, always with a smile on the face and willing to help you.
I would go back for sure !

If you want to visit the wonderfull city of Barcelona and at the same time have a nice holiday and get a tan its a very good idea to stay at the Costa Brava at Aqua hotel Onabrava.

In front of the hotel there's a train stopping that goes to Barcelona.
I takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes alongside the coast to get there.
Tickets roundtraintrip Barcelona : 7,50 euros.

Aqua hotel Onabrava is a 4 star hotel, and worth every star!
Everybody is friendly and know what the word 'service' mean.
I payed about 630 euros for a single room/12 days + flight ticket, ridiculous low price for what i got.

The room was nice and spacious, had a beautiful terrace, and a nice bathroom.
Everything very clean.
Recent building.

The only minus I can think of is that you have to cross a road to go to the beach.

Certainly would go there again.

Room Tip: loved the topfloor rooms
