My husband and I stayed in a premium room with sea and pool view. Loved the view and the room overlooked the pool which ment we could listen to the music from the animation team during the day. The food at the hotel was lovely, something for everyone's taste. I enjoyed every meal. The waiters and waitresses do a wonderful job. Everything at this hotel is just so good. I would say my only negative comment would be the entertainment. I would have preferred more entertainment outside. One night we watched The Village People and it was outstanding. A great night. All the employees in the Aqua Onabrava hotel do a wonderful job. A very big applause to everyone. Thank you for making our holiday wonderful. I will definitely be back. Collapse

Certainly at the better end of the Santa Susanna promenade, in a nice area between the 2 beaches which are both shingle but nice. We found we used the beaches more than usual as you aren't allowed to take any Balls, toys, Li-lo's etc into the pool so it was a bit boring! The reception area of the hotel is lovely and immaculately kept. The air con in the rooms is near useless, we had a premier room which was nice and clean, the only English speaking channels are BBC News, and a couple of other bad ones. Breakfast is really good, lots of choice and really well presented. There is a nice market on a Tuesday morning which runs all the way up the promenade, and if you are buying drinks etc for your room (there is a mini fridge) then go the bigger supermarket further up the promenade rather than the shop at the hotel, it's much cheaper. If you are planning a trip to Barcelona, the train station is a 2 minute walk from the hotel and trains run every 30 mins approx right into late evening and a much better option than the coach. We then used the underground to get round Barcelona which is so easy to use and goes everywhere you would want it to go, we bought a T10 ticket for 9 euros which gives you ten single trips on the underground. All in all, a nice hotel but they could do things to improve the experience. Collapse
A Hotel To Suit Most Tastes

We have recently returned from 6 nights at this hotel and our overall reaction was very favourable. We booked a Premium Triple room (216) on a half board basis. All Premium room are supposed to offer a pool view but I think it’s fair to say that having a small glimpse of the children’s pool in the distance wasn’t what we had in mind. The rooms are fairly standard for holiday hotels of this rating in Spain and reasonably well appointed, including a much appreciated small fridge to store drinks that you can enjoy on your terrace. A small selection of toiletries are also supplied and replenished. Our air conditioning unit worked satisfactorily throughout our stay. The main foyer of the hotel is vast, as befits a hotel with circa 320 room and approx 1,000 guests when full. The foyer also transmits, via the aircon, a beautiful fragrance which my wife and I commented on frequently. Reception staff are friendly and efficient but one wonders whether changing pool towels and supplying train time tables etc’ could be better situated elsewhere in order to minimise the queuing at peak times. The self service buffet style cafeteria (let’s not pretend that these places are restaurants) is vast, probably around 40mtrs x 25 mtrs with well presented food stations. The fayre on offer was generally of a good standard, including a gluten free section, and you would have to be an extremely fussy eater not to find something to suit your taste. Most guests are on a half board basis and the cafeteria can get extremely busy at breakfast and dinner with no discernible “sweet spots”. One piece of advice: If possible ask to be seated to the right of the entrance door. We noted that this section was noticeably quieter and calmer than the larger section to the left of the entrance. At dinner you are able to purchase drinks at your table and pay upon exiting. The pool area is extremely compact, especially when considering that up to a 1,000 people may wish to use the area at various times throughout the day. The usual sun bed grand prix takes place as soon as possible after 8am and while we were always able to find some free beds no matter what time we arrived, we were seldom able to locate beds with one of the circa 55 fixed parasols. This was/is a significant drawback as not many people choose to or are able to sit in constant sunshine with temperatures 30+ degrees. There is no poolside bar per se but there is a Tex Mex restaurant called Pergola’s attached to the hotel which supplies drinks that can be charged to your room if you have opened a credit/charge account when you checked in. Pergola’s provides excellent food at very reasonable prices and the staff are always very happy and courteous. Pretty much the only unforgivable aspect of this particular area is that nether the restaurant or the pool area has any toilets! We found this unfathomable considering the significant number of guests and restaurant diners. The only toilets are situated inside the hotel across marble floors which are hardly ideal for people coming out of the pool with wet feet...which is why few appeared to do so!!! P.S. The pool water quality was checked daily! The animation team work hard throughout the day to keep everyone entertained but if I hear “Desposito” one more time I think I’ll scream! ;). Some of the music for aqua aerobics and other pool activities is extremely loud and just when you think it’s all ended, the hotel right next door starts their routines so be prepared for quite a bit of “boom boom shake the room” poolside music. Night time entertainment is mostly performed in the “Music Bar” but occasionally, as with the Village People tribute act, it was performed poolside which was much more fun. The animation team perform their version of Grease which is quite entertaining. There are also external acts brought in throughout the week to add variety. Those of you who enjoy a game of bingo will be disappointed as there’s no “eyes down” at this hotel...at least none that we were able to witness. The clientele at the hotel cover many nationalities with the usual Brits, Germans, Dutch, French etc’ but with the largest Easter European contingent that we had encountered on any previous visit to Spain or its islands. Santa Susanna as a resort is pretty soulless and offers little or no insight into either the regional or national culture. It consists of one street which contains the ubiquitous bars and shops associated with most other similar resorts. The solitary street carries on until it merges with Malgrat del Mar in the North and Pineda Del Mar to the South. Outside the hotel there is a road and a railway track with separates the hotel from the golden gravel beach. You will need to locate an underpass in order to access the beach and it’s selection of reasonable of beach bars/restaurants. The train station is situated literally 5 mins from the pool area and you are able to travel north towards Girona and beyond or south along the coastal route to Barcelona. The ticket machine is not the easiest to understand and neither is the rail network to return from Barcelona so good luck with both of them! The journey time to Barcelona is approx 75mins and you are far from guaranteed a sea, especially if you travel between 10-12am. Barcelona is simply manic and magnificent in equal measure. Seldom, if ever, have we seen so many tourists in one city and it is little wonder that the authorities are seeking ways to reduce tourism and the dreadful congestion that accompanies it. There are the usual hop on hop off open top bus tours around various routes which cost 29 Euros per person. That’s a lot of money for a family but some of the sights are wonderful. In summary, we enjoyed our holiday overall and the hotel delivered on our expectation level. Would we return? No. That’s no reflection on the hotel, it’s simply that there are far more pleasant, picturesque, less sprawling resorts further north in this particular region....and I’m not talking Lloret, Blanes or Tossa. If you choose to stay at the AquaBrava Onabrava Hotel I am sure you will find it an enjoyable experience. FYI it’s approx 30-35min transfer from Girona airport. Various transfer options are available but we chose Vivatransfers which cost 45 Euros each way for a private taxi. They were, and always have been, very efficient and reliable. Booking a taxi from Santa Susanna to the airport will cost a set fee of 68Euros. Collapse

We had booked to stay in lloret, but had booked a one nigt stay in Santa Susanna, planning a train trip there for a wee change of scene. We were so pleased when we arrived and checked into this beautiful hotel, and were sad to only have one night there. It is lovely, and everything about the hotel was so comfortable, clean and fresh. The ambience is calm and so pleasant. Collapse
