Great hotel we had wonderful view of the sea from our room. The Hotel is in a wonderful spot the pool was great also had beach access. The staff were wonderful and very attentive my only downside was the food was very manufactured they need to put more love into their dishes they seemed like they were coming off a conveyer.
Other than that it was perfect for us.

We came here last Sunday for dinner and we're welcomed politely and walked over to our table. Service was good and our drink order was taken straight away.

We ordered our food fairly promptly and we're given an Amuse-bouche from the kitchen; melon and Parma Ham - tasty but not exactly a challenging dish. Only shared the lobster croquettes for starter which were a nice little thing to share. Myself and two others from our party ordered the fillet and foie, one the Sea Bass, and, finally, one had the duck breast.

A little wait for our starters to come (I had almost forgotten we ordered a starter), and we shared them with the table, with everyone secretly wanting the 6th croquette. Our mains came and the steaks were cooked to order and were beautifully pink. The foie portion was relatively small and the fillet was a very nice size - though not bursting with flavour. My girlfriend who had the Sea Bass, which she was not overly impressed with and said it definitely did not deserve to wear the €30 tshirt! The duck was okay however only the very centre of the breast was pink and for the most part it was pretty tough.

For desert I shared the chocolate truffles with my girlfriend which were very nice, yet the flavour lacked the real rich taste you would usually expect with truffles. A gold bar was also ordered (I believe that was what it was called) which I only heard good things about.

I was almost going to give Hotel Aguablava 4/5 star but had to go with 3. It is by far the best hotel, with some of the better food in the area. But if you're going to charge top prices for your food make sure you're actually delivering top food. Would come back, but would hope the food was a touch better for the price.

We stayed at Hotel Aiguablava for 3 nights in July. After looking at the photos on their website and at Booking.com we felt that these new, modern looking and well designed room was something that really appealed to us. We also booked a room with a balcony overlooking the garden. After checking-in and entering our room we got confused, is this the hotel we booked? It was like stepping back in time to the 70's! The room was nothing like the photos. It was old, brown and yellow and the balcony was above the hotel bar overlooking the parking lot. When I talked to Ruben at the front desk he just shrugged and said that he was aware of the problem. When I asked why they have such false marketing of their hotel and that we would like another, refurbished, room he said he would talk to management and they would get back to us. Of course no-one ever did get back to us...Otherwise the staff at the hotel was very friendly and attentive. The food however was bland and boring. This is more of a hotel for people over the age of 70 who like to stay on the premises for their vacation.

Room Tip: Call the hotel and make them confirm, in writing, that you get a refurbished room!

Stayed for three glorious nights at this very family friendly yet elegant hotel. The views were stunning with great food, beautiful pool and great access to hikes and beaches and water sports. Our kids fell in love with the place and we all made new friends. I can't wait to go back again! Incredible place!

Beautiful hotel overlooking the bay at Aigua Blava with a stunning pool and grounds. You can walk to all the adjoining bays or get the water taxi. This is definitely a family friendly hotel with a relaxed atmosphere but great service, nothing is too much trouble. The room was recently refurbished and is very stylish with a stunning view from our balcony over the small bay. We will be back.

Room Tip: Book a sea view it's worth it.
