We have stayed at this Hotel for the last 8 years, we and our friends are looking forward to returning again this year, we find it to be very good value for money, the swimming pool is a good size with plenty of room around and is not closed in or over-shadowed by buildings,there is good (domestic) room service and all the towels are changed daily.The security seems quite good ( I think) due to it being a smaller hotel with short corridors, the staff seem to know everyone who passes the door and a safe is fitted into each room(small charge for use). The food is plentyfull and fresh but a bit limited on daily change in variety.The beach is about 10mins steady walk away, there are plenty of shops to stroll around and if you want a trip out the bus station is close-by with cheap public transport(good quality and clean coach type buses). I can reccomend this hotel and it`s friendly staff.

  • Liked — Friendly, good value, good pool area, open aspect, convenient to beach,shops,transport.
  • Disliked — The outside of the building is a bit dated. Not enough daily variety of food.

we booked this hotel as a last minute deal so didnt really expect the best. there are bad and good points to this hotel so please read everything.
GOOD - nicely positioned to get around as its straight across the road from the bus station, so you can get buses to Lorrett or Barcelona every hour or so. and most of the organised trips you buy also leave from it.
plenty of shops near by and just round the corner from a supermarket if you need one + only a 10 slow min walk to the beach.
Hotel was clean and staff were very friendly and couldnt help you enough.
Bad - Hotel rooms were very small and had no air conditioning, we went in Sept and it was still very hot in the rooms, we had to sleep with the door open some nights.
halfway through our stay a large coach load of students came for a trip and completely took over the place, they were throwing stuff from balconys and into the pool.
Lunch and Dinner were very basic and not enough choice. in the week we stayed the soup only changed twice from noodle to mushroom , also you had to make sure you were down for dinner at opening time (7pm) as the hot food ran out a few of the days we were there which gave you even less option.
Drinks were Very expensive and you were not allowed to bring drinks into the dinning room from the bar upstairs even though it was the same hotel you had bought it from.
All in all, the hotel was a good clean cheap base if you had money to eat out.

  • Liked — close to the town centre
  • Disliked — no air conditioning

I visited this hotel with my wife, 3 young children and inlaws. The hotel is very clean and tidy, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Maids cleaned the rooms every day. Lovely pool We all had a very nice time. Food was O.K. Continental Breakfast is cheese ham, crossants, bread and toast with tea or juice. Evening meal is also a buffet with local style meals of either chicken beef of fish to choose from with soup starter and salad.

Tossa is a mainly Spanish retreat for young couples and families, which was great for us as it avoids the all football shirt types. Because of this the hotel gets busy over the weekend as does the whole of tossa with the Spanish on there weekend getaways. Bear this in mind if you have a car as the hotel only has around 15 spaces and you will not get one on Saturday or Sunday, and then you will spend along time trying to find one in the local streets, as the main town of tossa has very little parking and what little there is is on the metre.(Generally Don't move your car from the car park over the weekend.) The hotel is a little dated but I would recomend this hotel
as great value for money.

Hey hey...i got back about a week ago...i went as a teacher with a group of students. The pool was great and very clean, the bar was extremely nice...especially Carlos the bar man ;) hehe

The kids really loved it and the rooms were just enough seeign as we all only really had to sleep in them. There were some brill shops nearby and the beach and fort were lovely. I am currently thinking about coming here again on my own as i am a student/ teacher in training. I would love to come back....was a really good atmosphere.

I miss my pina coladas!!!!

The discos were good too with really fit dj's.....i think everyone thought that.

Cheers
