It's convenient for catching the train for day trips to Barcelona and within walking distance of restaurants and bars. Rooms are clean and modern, although fairly basic, and some have sea and mountain views.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Modern, family-friendly hotel

This hotel is situated in a two beige buildings connected by the lobby area. It's about 30 years old, but has been well-maintained and looks modern and fresh. Guests enter through revolving glass doors, and inside a skylight fills the large lobby with light. Contemporary leather seating is accented by huge modern light fixtures, and marble stairs lead down to the lower level. Wood and metal accents and soft lighting distinguish the front desk. The lobby bar has a grand piano, and the look overall is sleek and stylish, while the buffet restaurant is a massive contemporary, if somewhat impersonal, space. The hotel is especially suitable for couples and families looking for a coastal vacation with plenty of on-site activities. 

Location

Located near town center and beach, convenient for day trips to Barcelona

Aqua Hotel Onabrava is located in a hotel-filled area of Santa Susanna, a coastal village in the Province of Barcelona. It is surrounded by other hotels, restaurants, and bars, and is close to the town center and the beach (a 10-minute walk or less). It's an ideal location for tourists, easily reached by car or train, and there are multiple dining spots within walking distance. In the summer months, guests can stroll along the hotel strip, where stalls are set up selling local items. Driving times include 50 minutes to Montenegre-Corredor National Park, and an hour to the city of Barcelona and the Barcelona airport. A train station is located a six-minute walk from the hotel, and trips into Barcelona will take about 90 minutes.
