I booked Aqua Promenade based on the cheap price and clean stylish modern look in the pictures. This was a family holiday for 4 people. Two adults one teenager and one small child aged 3. The following should help you decide if this is the hotel for you.
It is very far from central Barcelona and the airport but only a one minute walk away from the train station. It is also a long way from Girona airport.
The beach is across the road from the hotel and there is a small beach bar.
The area is not very lively and there are little shops and nightlife. Even for a family travelling with a small child, we struggled to find things to do as the weather was not always beach worthy. We found hiring a car rescued the holiday as we then explored the other towns along the coast line.
I would recommend staying in Lloret de mar rather than Pineda de mar if you are under 40 and would like to do more than sit a relax by the pool or beach.
The hotel itself did not disappoint me at all. Like the pictures it was clean, stylish and modern. The staff were all great and welcoming. Reception was very helpful and eager to please. The food was great and varied (standard stuff; salad, chips, chicken, fish etc etc.. ) Rooms were spotless. Entertainment throughout the week catered for all ages and there was a mini disco every night for the small kids. There is also Pool and table tennis for the older kids in the bar.
As the hotel has many older/elderly people staying however, teenagers many feel its a bit alienating towards them. Groups of travelling teenagers looking for a wild holiday of boozing should give this one a miss.
In short, a really great hotel if you just fancy a rest.
