Just returned from a week at the Aqua Hotel and it lived up to its reviews. One word of warning - we had a family room for 3 and the double bedroom and bathroom were up a steep flight of marble stairs, with the single room at the bottom of the stairs. No problem for us as our son is a teenager, but if you have a younger child (who may need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night) you may want to check which room you have been allocated. We had a side view of the sea and a full view of the pedestrianised shopping street, so plenty of interest to watch! We could have done with a third chair on the balcony though!
We were impressed with the free activities provided via the hotel - 30 minutes each day free bike, kayaking and a couple of other things. One thing we were slightly disappointed in was the beach - sounds crazy, as it is large and sandy, but the sand is gritty (I understand it is the same all over the Costa Brava) which makes walking quite difficult, especially near the water's edge - and no good for making sandcastles! Most people obviously didn't agree with us as the beach was always busy whereas the pool area was surprisingly quiet, given that it is so small. We found a "top deck" which was nearly always empty (loads of sunbeds) and got the sun all day.
We got the train from Barcelona airport, only 4.55 euros single all the way to the hotel. It takes between 1.5 and 2 hours, with one change, but it is straightforward and the trains are regular (every half an hour) and comfortable.
