Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Aigua Blava
Platja de Fornells s/n, Begur, Catalonia, 17255, Spain Fodor's Choice
What began as a small hostal in the 1920s is now a sprawling luxury hotel, run by the fourth generation of the same family. Traditional touches—rocking chairs and wooden furniture in the sitting rooms, black-and-white photos tracing the evolution of the hotel—blend pleasantly with breezy rooms and lovely views of the inlet at Fornells. The bright, sun-filled restaurant overlooks the water and serves Catalan-style fish dishes, including fresh-off-the-boat lubina with oven-baked potatoes. The hotel is about 9 km (6 miles) north of Calella de Palafrugell.
