Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2014

I don't think you can get much better than this little gem of a place. The hotel looks directly over the beach underneath the castle. The rooms are clean and spacious and the hotel people, whether it be at reception or in the restaurant, are extremely friendly and lovely. The food in the restaurant is also interesting, smart and diverse. Breakfasts are a delight with fresh croissants and bread served as well as different cakes, tortilla and local home made specialities. I would go even as far to say that this hotel was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the beach. Thank you Cap D'Or family and people.

Room Tip: Ask the hotel for a room with a balcony.

I had the opportunity to spend a few days, last minute, in Tossa last year and after all of the great reviews on tripadvisor, I booked Hotel Cap d'Or. I was not disappointed. It really was perfect. Angela and her family and staff are extremely accommodating and their breakfast is great with home made tortilla and a choice of Spanish hams or yoghurts. It is a very sweet, charming hotel with a delightful terrace right in front of the beach and is in a fantastic location in general. Tossa itself has kept its charm and luckily attracts a nice type of visitor, and not a drinking crowd at all. There are mostly couples and families and a lot of Spanish which means that the area is very pleasant to go out in. I stayed in a side facing room, in which you could still see a little of the beach, and it was perfect and had everything you might need. I would definitely recommend this place.

Over the years Tossa de Mar has retained its authenticity and has not become overdeveloped like so many other places in Spain. This is a lovely family run hotel in a beautiful little town in the heart of Catalunya. We were made to feel so welcome by the wonderful staff and everything about our stay was good. The hotel was clean and very appealing and right on the beach next to the castle. Our bedroom overlooked the beach with an outstanding view and we could walk everywhere from the hotel. Each morning a very good breakfast was served on the beach. The staff was courteous and very helpful. Parking has to be found away from the hotel but the staff provided good advice and information, and it's rather nice to stay in an area without traffic going by. Although on a walkway at the foot of the castle it was surprisingly quiet during our stay (May 2014). The restaurants were good and we enjoyed the local shopping. The Thursday outdoor market is fun and fabulous! We also enjoyed the many scenic trails in the area. I would return here in a heartbeat and would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the beach are wonderful. Still very quiet at night in May.

We stayed for two nights at this lovely boutique hotel right on the beach. We had the only room with a terrace which made it even more perfect. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the owner and showed where we could park for free in the town. Besides being practically on the beach, it is at the base of the medieval castle walls, close to restaurants and shops. We had visited Tossa 12 years ago and stayed at one of the larger hotels. This was so much better. The breakfast is served outside and was quite good. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms have sea views. Ours was the only one with a small terrace.

Uh oh...my wife told me the name of the hotel and it posted itself as a hostel. I'm thinking.....You got to be kidding me

Located right on the beach, our second floor room overlooked the ocean and the nearby castle. Angela and her family run the restaurant and Inn and was so helpful. The food and wine at the restaurant( with seating right next to the each) was terrific and the umbrellas, seating and service was first class. STAY AT THIS PLACE.

So it's 4/5 why? Driving to the location which is snuggled in the old section of the town ....is a challenge ...but very doable. We ended up parking about a 15 minute walk away...leaving our rental in a unguarded lot. But there were no issues. Once you arrive at the hotel, you won't mind having to spend the extra time finding a parking space. It's really lovely.

The room is quaint (small) and comfortable. The price was 87 Euros. So much to do on the each, live music, walk the medieval castle. I will revisit.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view

one of the most beautiful boutique style hotel in Costa Brava, located just 50 meters from the beach and it is the closest hotel to Villa Vella ancient walls.
Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.
We had a great time and I'm sure we will book it again if we will come back to Tossa De mar.

Room Tip: try to get the room facing the sea, you wont regret it :)

We stayed at Hotel Cap d'Or for the first two nights of our 2 week vacation. The hotel is about a 1.5 hour drive from the airport in Barcelona ~ the perfect drive after an overnight international flight!

Hotel Cap d'Or is a small, family run hotel located at the base of the medieval castle walls ~ an ideal location! Our room had a beautiful view of the beach with a tiny balcony. It was nicely appointed with a small, but efficient bathroom.

Breakfast in the hotel was excellent!!! Freshly baked (and delicious) cakes, breads, meats & cheeses, homemade yogurt and strawberry sauce, fresh fruit, etc. We really loved the breakfast!!!

I believe the hotel is run by 3 women ~ Angela, her sister and mother. We had the pleasure of meeting and receiving excellent information of things to do in and out-of-town and places to eat from Angela and her mother. Both women spoke excellent English. Angela encouraged us to drive to Girona on our second day; we are so glad we did!!!!

The hotel does not have its own parking lot; there is a small pay public parking lot a few hundred feet away. It is my understanding that the public lot fills up during the summer months....

Tossa is a small beach town that is ideally located in the Costa Brava. Hotel Cap d'Or is the perfect place to stay for several days while venturing to other places out of town. I would love to stay here again in the future! :)
