My second complaint about the hotel is the activities were almost non existant, I suppose this could be put down to it being the end of season, but the hotel was busy and it is half term for a lot of UK schoolkids. Also, the indoor pool charged 8 euros for a days use which wasn't mentioned in the hotel description when we booked.
The evening entertainment was ok, kids mini disco at 9pm, then a show at 10pm, one night a magic show and another was a Brazil dance troupe.
On the plus side, we had a lovely room on the 4th floor overlooking the pool with a sea view. It was also on 2 mins walk to the train station which was very handy.
I think this hotel is more suited for the over 60's, particularly at this time of year, maybe things are different in the summer.
We wouldn't return to this hotel as there just wasn't enough going on to keep my 14yr old son occupied. I think though that there was a mini club during the day for 4-10yr olds.

Booked on-line without help of any agency.
Very clean and friendly, lots of sunbeds, food great, pool great, everything you need close by although not in centre of resort which suited us fine.
Every night lots of stalls selling local products, right outside hotel.

Rooms are large with everything that you would expect. Great pool - loads of sunloungers.
The only complaint we have is that the food was not hot enough although the choice was excellent. Would stay here again.

Definitely would go again. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Santa Susanna is a resort on the Costa Brava, about an hour from Barcelona. The hotel is about 5 minutes away from a beautiful sandy beach.
From the minute we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. The hotel check in was fast and efficient and the staff well organised and pleasant. The hotel was spotless and the rooms spacious and well equipped.
You are advised to pay for a safety deposit box as the management will not take responsibility for personal possessions and money left in your room.
The hotel has a good sized outdoor swimming pool but also benefits from a games room, indoor pool, gym, sauna and night time entertainment. On the down side the gym and indoor pool are charged for at the rate of 6 euros a day.
Where the hotel really excels is with its cuisine. Our holiday was a Christmas Festive break and the Christmas dinner was excellent and skilfully presented.
Generally meals take the form of a buffet service but the choice and scale of the food offered was truly amazing. All drinks ( and that includes water ) must be paid for separately at main dinner times but this seems to be standard practice in most hotels in Spain.
Bar prices and the prices of the vending machines in the hotel are in line with those locally. In many cases the hotel was actually cheaper. The tours which were not organised by the hotel, were expensive for what was on offer.
The most popular tourist destinations nearby are Barcelona, Mountserrat and Girona although the nearby seaside resort of Blanes is certainly worth a visit.
The train service is excellent and very close to the hotel. A return trip to Barcelona is only 7 euros. Public transport in Spain is cheap, clean and efficient.
This is a very good hotel and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
