Aqua Hotel Onabrava & Spa

BQ Belvedere is a family-friendly hotel close to Majorca's coastline. The hotel is a short walk from the sandy beach of Cala Mayor. The town is also a short walk away, giving you and the family plenty of things to do during your stay. The hotel overlooks its pool area which features two swimming pools, one of which is shallow enough for children to play in. You can spend your days sunbathing with drinks from the bar, which is just next to the pool, or chilling on the lawns under shade from the trees. If you prefer to do something a little more active during your stay, BQ Belvedere offers aqua aerobics sessions. There is also beach volleyball, table tennis, darts and pool. There are multiple restaurants here where you can enjoy a range of meals, followed by drinks in the hotel's salon bar which stays open until late. There'll also be evening entertainment for all the family, which usually includes shows. Along the beachfront, you'll find a range of international restaurants serving everything from Thai to Italian. The night-time scene is quite relaxed in Cala Mayor, with a handful of laid-back bars in the centre or beside the promenade.

For things to do during the day, you can explore the nearby Marivent Gardens. They are 1.6km from the hotel, and worth a visit if you're after a leisurely afternoon stroll. If you'd like to explore more of the area surrounding Cala Mayor, you can hire bikes in the centre and cycle along the seafront. To see more of the island's coastline, you can head to Illetes, which is 2.3km from BQ Belvedere. This area is made up of small sandy coves and is prized for its calm waters and pine tree backdrops. For a city scene, you can head to the capital of Palma, which is 5km away.

You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner in BQ Belvedere's buffet restaurant, which offers an international cuisine. You'll also have the option of eating lunch in the hotel's à la carte restaurant which serves Italian dishes. You can get snacks from one of the restaurants from mid morning until late afternoon.

Children can get involved with the kids' club, which runs from morning until lunch time. You can book a boat trip and explore the Caves of Drach.

The rooms at BQ Belvedere have individually controlled air conditioning, a phone, Wi-Fi, a TV and a balcony or terrace. A minibar is also available.

Highly recommended

I stayed here for 3 nights with my partner and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Spacious modern room, very clean, and super comfy bed which is very important to me! The hotel staff was always helpful and friendly. Really loved to start my day with a nice breakfast buffet (healthy options included :-)) . The hotel is perfectly located close to the beach as well as the train station, so you can easily access Barcelona by train (1 hour pleasant ride along the coast/ every 30 min).

Very good hotel with excellent food and a good gym.

We stayed here in the last week of October 2020 during the half term, and enjoyed our first vacation after the Covid lockdown. It was great to travel again, and our stay at Aqua Hotel Onabrava in Santa Susanna was a very pleasant stay. We particularly like the food (we were full board with breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and the gym, and have returned back refreshed and recharged. The Room: We went for a standard room which featured two double beds (the kids shared). The room was clean and comfortable with enough storage space for us to unpack and hang up our clothes. It had a complimentary safe, but no coffee or tea making facilities. It had a flat-screen tv - but the kids couldn't find any English speaking channels they liked (the cartoons they found we all dubbed in Spanish). The room did, however, have a strong and reasonably fast internet connection (complimentary) so they could watch what they wanted on Netflix. There was also a small fridge in the room (where we stored some water) and a couple of easy chairs and a table squeezed into a corner. IT wasn't a big room with ample of space, but it wasn't claustrophobically small either. The bathroom was a decent sized with a nice walk in shower (good water pressure). Housekeeping kept the room and the bathroom clean and fresh. Lobby/Bar: There was a big lobby/bar area. I found the chairs a bit uncomfortable but I loved the cocktails (priced at around 7.20 euro each, which seemed entirely reasonable). The hotel doesn't seem to do all inclusive, so we had to pay for our drinks. However, when we go to all inclusive hotels, the cocktails are normally awful and not worth drinking. The cocktails at Onabrava were made with freshly squeezed lemon / lime juices and the Mojito, Caipirinha, Whiskey Sour cocktails we had were excellent (as were the Long Island Ice Teas ). The bar also does excellent coffee / espresso. Food: We enjoyed the fresh food of the buffets. Since the hotel is next to the sea we had hoped to find fish on the menuet and were happy to find that there typically was one or two kinds of fried fish for dinner and lunch along with other fish dishes. The staple meats were pork and veal. There was plenty of cut up melon along with the cakes and other desserts. The only things I retrospectively missed from the lunch/dinner buffet were smoked fish (e.g. I would have liked some smoked salmon) and some fresh herbs on the salad bar(i.e. I would have liked some fresh dill or parsley to put in my salad or on top of my fish). Also, we were served tinned asparagus on the salad bar instead of fresh asparagus. However, there were some lovely grilled fresh asparagus on offer on 3 or 4 occasions which made up for that. We also liked the breakfast. Guests could make themselves Nespresso (I would have loved to have had the opportunity of having a real espresso at breakfast, though) and help themselves to juices. The juices were, as my daughter put it 'quite sad.' The last hotel we stayed at in Spain had treated us to smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. This wasn't on offer here. The hotel didn't serve pancakes or waffles at breakfast either. But there were plenty of cakes, croissants, eggs, omelets, baked beans, bacon, churros, serial, sausages, cold meat, cheese, sliced grapefruit, sliced melon etc etc to keep everybody happy. Those who wanted a glass of sparkling wine / cava in the morning, could also help themself to a glass (or as many glasses as they liked). Overall, the food on offer was fresh, varied, and tasty. Covid note: Guests were seated and asked to wear masks whenever they left their table to get food. I didn't see any guests that didn't wear masks when they were not seated. I just read a previously posted review which suggest that meals were chaos and unsafe from a covid perspective (even suggesting that guests help themselves with their fingers and not using utensils). That was certainly not our experience. We felt very safe. We didn't see any guests help themselves without using utensils. We didn't experience other guests being rude and pushing in either. Our meals were very enjoyable and felt very safe. Pools: We did not expect the outdoor pool to be heated (as it hadn't said that it would be heated on-line) - and, indeed, it wasn't. Consequently, no-one used it. On the second day we braved it and we managed to swim some laps. Once submerged in the water, I actually enjoyed swimming in the outdoor pool. However, it had taken me at least 10 minutes to talk myself into it. Not being heated - it felt very cold to get submerged. Since it was such a battle to get into the water in the outdoor pool, we only went into it once. We did, however, book ourself into the indoor pool / spar on four occasions. There is a fee and it is not included in the stay, but it was worth it. The indoor pool wasn't big - although it was a lot bigger than many other spa pools. The water was lovely and warm. Gym: The gym impressed me. Most of the hotel gyms we have been to is a mere toke with very little equipment. This gym was very well equipped. It wasn't free but included in the price of the indoor pool. The beach: The hotel is very close to the beach (although, I don't think that the hotel has a particular part of the beach attached to it). We had some pleasurable walks by the beach - but the water wasn't hot enough to entice us into it (and we didn't see anyone else swim). Had it been summer, it would have been lovely to go for a swim. All in all, we enjoyed our stay because of the good food, the great cocktails, the comfortable and clean room, and the gym/indoor pool - along with the seaside location.

Is this the worst hotel ever
