“Brilliant VFM”
Reviewed 16 June 2011

This hotel is the annex of the Tossa Beach/Tossa Centre Hotel, with all food and snacks being served in
the Tossa Beach and drinks served in both.
We were a little concerned about the 1* rating, but found the Mar Bella to be clean and totally adequate. The room was fairly spacious and the maids did a good job cleaning the bathroom, sweeping and washing the floors, making the beds and providing fresh towels daily.
The beds are slightly hard, but nothing to moan about.
As we were all inclusive we had our meals in the Tossa Beach hotel, which is bright and modern. The food was varied and of good quality, but there is a vast improvement at the weekends when the Spanish arrive (on mass!).
We tended to spend most of our time at the Tossa Centre Hotel as the bar area was more intimate and not as rowdy and there is room to sit on the terrace at the front and watch the world go by.
We had been slightly concerned before our trip about other people's reports of unhelpful/rude reception staff and being treated like children, however we needn't have worried. All of the staff were helpful and friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. The management and security staff were quick to deter any rowdy behaviour, but that is how it should be. No unacceptable behaviour will be tolerated, as we witness the eviction of a party of 6 that had caused a huge distubance during the night.
We had a really good relaxing break in this pretty little town. The beaches are very clean and the water crystal clear. The old town is really picturesque and deffinatly worth a visit. (There's even a little train to take you to the top if you can't face the walk!) And the boat trip to the caves and Girivola is lovely.
If you want something livelier go to Lloret de Mar.

Reviewed 15 June 2011

Worst hotel ever stayed in, rooms the size of a cupboard, noisy, doors shutting echoed throughout all night. water system made noises throughout the night, glad to be home for a decent night sleep. One of group of three hotels which include Tossa beach hotel and tossa centre hotel. People complaining from all 3, due to noise, room size, food, entertainment (or should i say lack of it) . Tossa de Mar is lovely place, staff did their best in poor surroundings. Certainly would not recommend this hotel to anybody, but others in the resort looked nice
