Spent a week at The Augusta Spa as part of a mini tour of Galicia. The set up feels strange to begin with, the hotel is based around 2 different buildings on the opposite side of the road, about 10 minutes walk away from the beach. But once you get used to it it has lots of excellent features. The Family Suites in Building 2 are brilliant. There's a useful kitchenette and a luxurious bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and a 'drench' shower. The hammock on the balcony was popular with the whole family! The pool at Building 2 is great. You can be pummelled by several different jets and torrents of water as well as swimming and relaxing in a hot tub. The retractable roof is inspired and staff were quick off the mark to open or close it according to the temperature. It's slightly annoying that there's an 'adults only' pool at the Family Suite building but the rules were only strictly enforced when it was really busy. We didn't visit the pools much at Building 1 but there are 3.
Food-wise there's a choice: we went half board, and could eat breakfast and one other meal in either restaurant in whichever building we fancied. The breakfast buffet was excellent, well staffed with a good choice. The Table D'Hote dinner was fine, mainly grilled meat/fish and rice dishes. I'd probably give it 6-7/10. The menu is is in Spanish, only a few of the staff speak English but those who do are fantastic. Fernando in the restaurant is really charming and helpful and Ludovico too. The reception staff try really hard to speak English and are very helpful as well. I'm pretty sure we were the only British (probably the only non-Spanish) people in the hotel for the whole week.
This is the perfect place for families with kids of all ages. Ours are 12 an 10.There is some 'animacion' for children but it's fairly low key and, again, not very accessible if you don't speak Spanish.
Overall a really good place with some luxurious touches. To me it felt like a spa first and foremost rather than a family beach hotel, which isn't necessarily a bad thing!
