The Good Family Hotel Guide: Hotel Aigua Blava, Costa Brava
Saturday 26 June 1999
Large and sprawling, but with the friendly family-run atmosphere of a much smaller establishment - which is why British families have been holing up here for generations. Beautifully situated on rosy rocks over an amazing blue sea
Not for toddlers - they're pocket-sized, pebbly and tricky to get to. Excellent sandy versions, however, are just five minutes' drive away.
No kids club or karaoke, but occasional children's disco. Also table- tennis, tennis, large pool and gardens.
Good food and civilised dining-room without being formal, and not too many buffets. Full board only in the summer.
Quiet but stunning. The area is fantastic for family excursions and picnics.
