    Our opinion

    The Parador de Aiguablava is a stylish and contemporary hotel where the main attraction is the outstanding setting. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring the picturesque coves and clifftop villages of the Costa Brava, and promises stunning views out to sea.

    Hotel description

    The Parador de Aiguablava is a four-star hotel located atop the cliffs of Punta d’es Muts just outside the picturesque village of Begur, a contemporary seaside villa amid exquisite coastal scenery. Located on a bluff that extends into the sea on the Costa Brava, the hotel enjoys stunning panoramic views: to one side is the Mediterranean, to the other is the rugged coastal outline that descends to the crystal clear waters of Aiguablava Cove. From here, the hotel appears as a white-washed vision on the headland, amid swathes of pine trees. The architecture is contemporary, with its clean lines and angular nature promoting laidback seaside stays. At the tip of the peninsula, discover an outdoor pool with unrivalled views, and the feeling of freshness evident here is one which pervades throughout the property. From the lobby to the bar and even into the guestrooms, the hotel’s spacious interiors offer an effusive energy, filled with light and space. In some places, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows invite sunlight and spectacular views to illuminate spaces filled with minimalist furniture, modern artwork and soothing tones uplifted by colourful accents. Also embracing clean lines and a fresh colour scheme, the hotel’s guestrooms accommodate guests in true simplicity. Where some show a nautical theme, others offer wall-to-wall whites with modern tones thrown in. Almost all open onto a private balcony from which guests can relax and enjoy beautiful views. Guests can choose to dine in the hotel’s restaurant, which offers a selection of local dishes at a very reasonable price, or at the beachside Mar i Vent restaurant in Aiguablava Cove. Around five minutes’ walk away from the hotel, this elegant dining room is the setting for indulging on seafood delicacies and other flavours of the region and promises lovely views of the sea. After dinner drinks can also be sought at the bar, and the rustic terrace beckons as a charming spot after dark. Nearby Begur is a charming village with a number of restaurants and bars, only a few minutes’ drive away along winding roads with stunning views of the cliffs and out to sea. The Parador de Aiguablava is an excellent option for a relaxed holiday on the Costa Brava, where the outstanding setting is the main attraction.
