“Clean, friendly and helpful staff.”
Reviewed 13 April 2011

A friend and I stayed here to recce the town and hotel for a school trip in July. It was excellent for the purpose, geared towads the needs of school groups who seem to make up the majority of the clientele, with a variety of faciities, including a pool. Nothing is left to chance and there is even CCTV to keep an eye on goings on! The staff could not do enough for us, down to giving us a picnic each day as we missed breakfast due to early starts. The concierge was particularly chatty and informative. The room was very clean and the bathroom was pleasantly spacious, thought there was no extraction. As we were travelling, as will the group be, by bus, the location next to the bus station is absolutely ideal. The town is only 5 minutes' walk away.

Room Tip: Only go if you like groups of children!

To begin with the hotel was not clean in the slightest, as well as this the rooms are tiny and only one plug socket... in the bathroom. The service is dreadful, I had to wait a good half hour to be served a drink. Furthermore the food was so bad I wouldn't serve it to my dog in fear he would be sick. On the plus side it has internet connection and a nice pool other than that It is dreadful. By far the worst hotel I have stayed at and if you are considering booking a place at this poor excuse for a hotel I would seriously reconsider

Recently took 44 teeenagers to Spain for a school trip. All the staff at the hotel were helpful, tolerant and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were spotless and were cleaned daily during our stay. The only down side was there was no air con but the hotel reception did provide a fan for a member of staff who was feeling unwell. There was a good sized pool area which didn't take advantage of as we didn't want to ruin the peace and quiet of the other residents! The hotel also has a pleasant little bar and games room with pool table and darts. The bar staff were very friendly and offered to put on a disco for our school group which the pupils really enjoyed. We took the full board option. A plentiful continental breakfast and buffet style dining meant that even the fussiest teenage didn't go hungry. There was plenty of salad, pasta, veg and a meat and fish option. The hotel also provided packed lunches for our school party which were very good. I was really impressed by the helpfulness of the restaurant staff and the cook. A member of our group has to follow a strict gluten free diet and the kitchen catered well for this as the cook prepared special gluten free meals. I am extremely grateful for this - thank you! The hotel is in a good location, just 5 minutes walk from the beach. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are organising a school trip and will certainly use it again for future school trips.

Went there with my schools 3 spanish classes this April. Personally, i think that the design inside the hotel i very dated, due for an upgrade. This hotel is rather small but cozy :). Its perfect for schools because its simple and cheap. The food choice is very limited, so you should eat out if you are not with a school. The hotel was very quiet! I think its because we went in a season that is not busy. The rooms are clean and some of the balconys are connected, perfect for us teens to climb other into eachothers rooms lol. Its about 1:30 from barcelona which is annoying! But its nice and close to the beach.
The beds are fine, i got a decent nights sleep once the boys had stopped calling our room phone :S. The pool was ice cold! But to be honest, it was the cold and wet season, so i dont think it was really supposed to be used. There are lots of sun beds.
There is no entertainment, just a samll bar, although they did put on a disco for us, like i sed, it was the quiet season.

Would recommend this hotel to Back packers, Couples with low expectations, elderly, schools.
Wouldnt recommend this to couples who want a romantic time, families, teenagers, young kids.

Went with a large school group (teenagers aged 15 - 18). Found this to be an ideal location, 10 minutes from beach in small traditional Spanish resort and one & a half hour coach drive to Barcelona.
Hotel catered well for large groups, food was reasonable (even for faddy teenagers!) Nothing was too much trouble for hotel staff, who were pleasant, helpful and tolerant! Pool and garden areas - lovely, spacious and quite safe.
Rooms were clean, all seemed to have a balcony - were a bit small but perfectly adequate (for all the time spent there)

Traveled here by Ferris Coaches in September, It was the first time we had been to Tossa and it is a beautiful town, The hotel itself is very handy for the beach and town, Not to close and not to far away, Staff were very friendly and helpful, Rooms were clean and the food was OK but a bit repetitive, There were only two downsides to our stay, One was the location of our room which was facing the main road which is the only way in and out of the town, Not to bad during the day as you are out most of the time but at night we found it hard to sleep as the constant noise of the motorcycles and scooters which seem to be everywhere and continue all night kept us awake and as there is no aircon keeping the balcony door shut was not a option, Perhaps if we had a room in another part of the hotel things would have been different?

Second was the fact that they cater for Students, The second day of our stay a coach load arrived and seemed to take over half of the hotel, They had parties at night and played music etc to all hours and to start with completely filled the dining room so we could not find a seat and had to eat out, To give the staff their due though this was sorted after the second day they were here probably due to so many complaints and the Students eat at a different time to other guests.

It's basic but it's clean enough and good if your looking for somewhere cheap. The decor is a bit dated and looks like its from the 60's/70's although it doesn't look dirty or anything. There isn't much on offer for breakfast and dinner, when we went there was only like two small areas to pick food from and there wasn't much I liked, but you always end up eating something whether it's chips or soup. The rooms are a good size and are kept quite clean but the toilet decor does look dated. The pool area is a decent size and quite nice and clean. The hotel's only like a 3 minute walk form the beach. The beach and town are dead nice and there's some decent shops there too.

  • Liked — Clean and wasn't too busy.
  • Disliked — Old decor and a bit too quiet.
