“Excellent family run hotel”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

A wonderful spot on the Costa Brava. The front desk staff were extremely helpful with all of my questions and particularly when one member of the party had to leave quickly to respond to an emergency at home. I loved the breakfast although preferred the lattes from the waiter rather than the machine. Dinner was OK. Very accessible to walking trails and beaches. Many guests were from England.

Room Tip: The rooms looking over the ocean in the main building are spectacular especially during a full moon.

I've have been fortunate enough to be coming to this hotel for over 30 years and it is Costa Brava's best kept secret! I can't say enough good things about the hotel, location, staff and atmosphere - at the same time I don't want too many people to know about this place as it's very, very special just the way it is. Thank you for some very fond memories AB!

Stayed 4 nights in early May on a half board basis with friends for a short golfing break. We had not been here since 2010 and the welcome and service were as good as ever. Food was even better and nothing could be too much for the staff. Special mention for Luis who just keeps on going looking after everyone. Breakfast on the terrace was a bonus but having to carry coffee and tea to the table irritates me.
Our bedroom had a balcony overlooking the main hotel , gardens and cliff walk and was spacious and always clean.
Aigua Blava is a great family hotel with a large swimming pool.
A cracking hotel to which we will be going back.

Room Tip: Choose a bedroom with a view over the bay.

It is around 10 years since we last visited AB and the standards have remained as high as ever.

A high quality hotel, set in delightful gardens with excellent pool, very comfortable rooms, with stunning views, and most important, top level friendly service, lead in the restaurants by Luis, top man!

With very interesting menus, and a good sensibly price wine list, who could ask for more!

Room Tip: Ask for sea view.

We've been visiting Aigua Blava since the early 1960s. Needless to say we love it! This is a very special hotel with a unique location; the service is unsurpassed and we visit whenever we can. The pool is gorgeous and you can swim in the sea so easily too, either off the tiny beach just beneath the hotel or off the "slab" - where you can dive into deep water safely. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable and the views stunning.

we stayed here in april 10 days - to be honest we were not quite sure what to expect - but starting the decent from the main road gave us hope - what a breathtaking view.
- arriving at the hotel told us this would be a vacation to remember - getting the room - top floor with the most amazing view added even more good karma.
amazing place - friendly staff and overall just great.

Like last year we hiked on Costa Brava, and like last year we stayed for one night in Hotel Aigua Blava. We were flattered to be recognized by the staff. We got other rooms than last year, and they were even better and bigger.

The hotel restaurant is known for its high standard, and we were not disappointed this time either. Food, service and everything was class - And the breakfast had everything you could think of.

We are already planning a longer stay in Hotel Aigua Blava next autumn.
