“Sea side hotel in prime position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I found the Mar Menuda really quite a good bet. It is located on the edge of Tossa de Mar overlooking the smaller beach and is a five minute walk along the coastal road to Tossa de Mar centre. It has a small car park, a restaurant which seems to attract more than just guests, and a Jacuzzi/steam room, exercise room/terrace with small pool.

Rooms were undergoing final renovations at this time and the resort overall was quite quiet. Staff were good and very helpful, breakfast good quality for the hotel - and typically Spanish.

I had a room [106] which wasn't sea facing but was quite large, everything worked, it had a small balcony, large king size bed, and decent bathroom.

Room Tip: There are some very nice sea facing rooms and suites - but I guess they cost more.

Right on the beach! Helpful, friendly staff. Rooms quite alright. Spa not quite up to nordic standards (I live in Sweden) but ok for a cloudy day. Restaurant superb, by far way better than the tourist traps on the strip. You'll spend about 10 euro more per person, but if you can manage it, you'll have a memorable dining experience.

Our short stay in Tossa de Mar was booked last minute due to the reviews we read about the Frigola hotel in Lloret de Mar, Spain.
Good job that we changed hotels because the Figola sounds like a hell hole, be aware!!!

Our holiday was bought for us as a mini moon from the sister in law through low cost packages. who advised her that the Frigola was the good choice of hotel and was within her budget.
The day before we were about to fly out we read about the shocking reviews and called up the company which refused to change our hotel.

So we looked on booking.com and found this place, which was good value and close to the beach. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor we decided to book the room.

It's a bit run down but never the less our stay is short. For 4 nights, we like it.

Our room is big and clean, the aircon works, the bathroom is on the small size but that doesnt bother me.

Breakfast consists of cold meat, pasteries, fruit, yoghurt, eggs. Also hot breakfast is available at a request.

The beach in front of the hotel is pebbly so most of our time was down at the main beach. Which is only 5 mins walk away.

The spa is not that great. Steam and suana room are ok, used the steam room 2 days out of 4. Jet showers could need a revamp and so could the jacuzzi.
There's the hotel pool, small in size, which we didn't use due to the beach.

The staff here are friendly and are willing to help.

Tossa de Mar is a place way from the madding crowd. Its quiet little town and the beach is very clean.
There's a great choice of resturuants to choose from.
The weather hasn't been great for us but the food has well made up for it!!

Walked along beach at Tossa to the quiet end away from the fort and liked the look and position of this hotel. Booked into a suite which had fantastic view over beach. Absolutely delighted with the room which was in a quaint Spanish style and was kept sparkling clean by friendly staff. Reception staff excellent and appeared to speak every language. Only complaint was that power kept clicking off in spa but staff tell us it will be sorted. Will be back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: All rooms quiet in the evening as well a way from entertainment. Upper floor front rooms have fant...

We arrived early but were made welcome and shown to the terrace bar for a beer while the room was readied. Private car park a big bonus. Quiet room at the back, comfortable bed, clean and well fitted. The web and room brochure offers a tea making kit available at reception but this is for the expensive suites only. If you like a morning cuppa, do as we do and take a camping kettle.

The pool area is small and dated on the first floor but a sun trap if you can get space or a sunbed.

Excellent restaurant punching well above its weight and reasonanly priced too. Buffet breakfast with cava extensive and very good value. Right on the beach, short walk to the town, great views of the castle. We liked it very much and would stay again, next time for longer than two nights.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms can be noisy as they overlook the pool and/or restaurant. Go without the view and...

For a 3 star it looks good from the outside.
Staff are all very welcoming and friendly, nothing seems to much of a bother.
We had not booked so whilst we were out side the hotel, we made the reservation on booking.com.
Hotel room was very clean and functional. Room was well equipped.
Was so impressed with the hotel we decided to stay a second night.
Hotel is just a short walk (20 paces - no exaggeration) from the beach.
If there is one minor niggle it is the hotel pool & spa. This is very small and not up to much although the steam room and sauna both work well. I would advise to use the Med, it is warmer that the hotel pool.

Room Tip: try a sea view rook on 2nd floor.
