Stayed here in mar Blau for one week in September, good size room at the back facing the dry river bed, balcony directly facing hotel opposite, adjoining balcony are divided by wrought iron so no privacy from neighbours, good basic breakfast, excellent location for beach, shops etc, lovely owners but have very little English, so enquires about places to go...

Chose this Hotel by reading other Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was at the back of the Hotel with a fairly large balcony and a side view of the sea which is about 200 metres away. Air conditioning in the room plus another fan. Extremely well furnished with... More

We have never been to Tossa, what a fabulous place and what a great location the hotel is. The room we stayed in was a little dated but it didn't take away from the charm of the hotel. No air con but fan provided in the room. Good sized balcony overlooking dry river bed. So close to everything you need.... More

My wife and I stayed in the Mar Blau for one night last week for the first time in nearly 10 years and we were not disappointed. The hotel has been refurbished since our last stay and the hospitality of the management and staff of this very friendly family run hotel was as we experienced previously, excellent. Our room, while... More

The home-like, cozy atmosphere of the hotel secured by the older couple running the hotel is a big advantage of this hotel. Friendly and helpful service in addition to clean, freshly renovated, spacious rooms is a perfect combination to relax and enjoy the vacation. Breakfasts are just perfect not to feel hungry and in the meantime not to overeat. If... More

We stayed three nights in the Mar Blau and found it to be well located (close to beach, to shopping, and to good, reasonably priced restaurants), quiet and clean. The room was well-appointed and spacious and we did have a fridge. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Others have mentioned the breakfast: we found it to be a fairly light... More

Well-located and newly renovated hotel in a city that, while beautiful, completely disappointed me. We ended up spending lots of time in the hotel as the beaches were much too overcrowded and the general ambience of the place very cheap-tourism-like. Large breakfasts in the morning were a good way to start the day, and the reception team was very kind.... More

A simple but spotlessly clean hotel. The couple that have run the hotel for over forty years are wonderfully friendly and speak English and French as well as Catalan and Spanish. The rooms were simple, the beds comfortable, the breakfast good. A parking spot can be included for a small daily fee. All in all excellent value for money -... More

I booked a superior room through booking.com. The room was as described, TV and fridge both provided and the room was light, spacious and felt relatively newly redecorated/refurbed. Balcony backed onto the rear of the hotel where there is a dry riverbed providing no noise from outside. Something to bear in mind is the rooms are not air conditioned (at... More

Besides the fact that our room looked nothing like on the pictures shown on the booking website (I booked through booking.com), I would very much recommend this hotel if you are looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay. The rooms are simple, no TV (who needs it anyway in a beautiful place like Tossa de Mar?!) or fridge,... More
