“Don't be put off by the bad reviews”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at the end of August. Prior to going, we had read some of the reviews and had big reservations about staying at the hotel. However, we were pleasantly surprised - the rooms were clean and serviced every day, the food was plentiful and whilst not cordon bleu, was perfectly acceptable, with a big selection of fresh fruit and salad, meat and fish. The pool could do with some more sunshades, it is on the roof so not much protection from the sun. For a hotel of this grade, it was good, and we would definitely go back

Spent a 5 day break here in late August. Was cautious after having read the reviews but actually it is a good no-frills base to use for staying in the area. The hotel is very close to the beach and Tossa itself is a lovely town which has not suffered from commercial tourism. the hotel room was clean and you get what you would expect for this sort of style and price, the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful, served from a large buffet: the quality was not always fantastic, but it was generally very nice, plenty of fresh fruit and veg, and the meat and fish was usually well done. The evening entertainment was fine for kids, but the discos were fairly lifeless. There is a rooftop pool with a bar which gives some super views over the town if you don't want to go down to the beach.
We used the hotel as a base for touring the local area and hired a car. There is a lot to see in the area and worth planning some visits to the other local towns to the north and west of Tossa. There are some lovely little unspoilt beaches off the road north of Tossa (towards san Filoux) if you want a more private spot to swim and sunbathe. parking in Tossa is not easy as most of the on-street parking is used by the locals. There is underground parking at this hotel but it is charged extra by the day so if you don't mind walking then try to find a place in the town somewhere.
Dont be put off by the bad reports here, this is a good hotel which is reasonably priced, and in a superb location.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front over the road can be noisy when the bars opposite are closing.

We have just returned from spending a week at the Don Juan & I have got to say when the wife booked this 3 weeks ago & I read reports I was not looking forward to it, to all the people who don't rate this hotel please get a life, it's not a top notch hotel no, it is 3 star plus, on arriving pleasently surprised at reception n room was good enough, pool on top of hotel, nice views, food plenty of choice n you can't starve, all inclusive ends at 10pm, not a problem really, only down side is not enough English use it, mostly Russain, staff very polite n courteous.

On arriving at don juan I was pleasantly surprised. As we had a late arrival a cold buffet had been left for us in the restaurant. The food wasn't the best, however I could always find something to eat. I think this hotel would have been great 15-20 years ago. It is a little run down, however it's clean. The staff are not pleasant and are very selective who they serve. Example being that they never served my husband ( he is not a drunk and tips better than me). English are the minority at this hotel. This was not a problem to me. Please note this is a budget hotel. If your looking for a cheap holiday it's ok.

I have just come back from a stay here with my son and I have to say after reading the reviews I was a bit put off
I have to say it was most enjoyable food was fine plenty of choice pool was clean and there were parasols
I agree the breakfast was a bit of a free for all but on the whole plenty of choice again
The rooms were cleaned daily and clean towels and sheets everyday we had a room on the 4th floor front facing with massive balcony
I would defiantly stay here again and only 5mins away from the seafront if that and a lovely local bar opposite great for the G&Ts
Most enjoyable holiday

went to this hotel on a school trip i thought it was amazing!! the rooms were perfect, we stayed in 109, beds were comfy, room was always clean, had a nice balcony view, i just loved it, id so go here again. the food wasnt up to my standards because i didnt like most of it but the chips and that were nice, loved the discos, the songs were so fun to dance to. i did have one issue though, which was the door, it was very hard to open and i only learned how to open it 3 days in to the 5 day holiday, pool was amazing just the right temperature lots of sunbeds, the staff who spoke english were so friendly but even the ones who didnt always tried to help. it has amazing attractions inside and outside the hotel. i just thought it was an all round amazing trip! id definetly go here again its suitable for anyone, buisness couples family friends and solo although id never go solo
