“Great food deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Whilst taking a break in Barcelona we had 3 days in Tossa de Mar. Sounds a bit touristy but staying at the Hotel Gran Reymar made it really special. The hotel is located at the end of the beach with beautiful views towards the castle. Rated at 4 star the hotel is well appointed and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The great deal we got from Thomson was 3 nights half board which meant we could enjoy a great choice at the buffet breakfast and choice our pick of lunch or dinner. The food was excellent, beautifully served in a sparkling dinning room with romantic sea views.At £100 per night it seemed a pit pricey for Spain until you take into account the quality of the food, worth at least £50. The rooms are spacious with great views over the pool and sea. Spotlessly clean with good facilities. The only down side is the spa which is not owned by the hotel so means you have to fork out €20 each to use the heated pool, sauna and steam room. Pity, but if you fancy really pampering yourself you can spend €99 plus on luxury treatments and thus get the facility for free.

Overall the hotel is well worth it's 4 stars and the dinning facilities really make you feel special. Tossa it's self is pretty and the castle with it's old town is great for strolling. Close to a perfect weekend.

Room Tip: Go for a standard sea view.

Starting with the man who carried our luggage into the hotel, we were warmly greeted by all employees. The hotel has a amazing setting overlooking the Mediterranean in Tossa de Mar. The public rooms were large and inviting. Breakfast was very good - many choices and a beautiful place to eat with views. A really nice touch was an offer to give us a continental breakfast before the normal opening time for the included one. We chose a time we had to eat in order to leave on time and our table was set in the dining room with fruit, yogurt and several pastries. I do not think in all our travels any hotel has offered to do this. The room was lovely, bath large and modern. Balcony superb. Our only complaint was the thin walls - could hear walking above. We always carry noisemakers so it was not as bad as it could have been. WE highly recommend and hope to go back.

Room Tip: Balcony wonderful.

We visited the wonderful medieval town of Tossa de Mar on our way to France from Barcelona. We chose the enchanting Gran Hotel Reymar for its location, great reviews and beautiful photos. This was the perfect hotel to stay at during our visit to this magical place. We were within walking distance to all of the incredible restaurants and the majestic fortress Vila Vella enceinte. I booked the double sea view room with a baloney. We had gorgeous views of the beach and cove below. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a nice sized bathroom. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful to us during our stay. The restaurant was fantastic! The food outstanding and the ambiance couldn't have been better. We will return again!!

Room Tip: Make sure to book an ocean view room with a balcony.

We had a week in the Reymar at the end of the season (3-10 October). I had read the many very good reviews and the sceptical in me wasn't't sure I believed them. I am very happy to say that the hotel is fantastic in all respects. Location: few mins walk from great beach and loads od good restaurants. Tossa is a small but beautiful fishing town sleepy in winter but which comes alive in summer. Food: excellent. Breakfast buffet is one of the best I've seen (fresh fruit/meats, cheeses and the Spanish toast with garlic and salsa!). We did half board which gave us the choice of lunch or dinner as well. Not buffet but a choice for 3 x 3 courses - all excellent. Wait staff and bar staff are absolutely excellent. Friendly and helpful. We had a 1 yr old and they all paid her loads of attention and were so good to her. Mani/pedi at spa good too. Pool cold in oct but refreshing. We can't thank the staff enough for the great service. Thank you!

October in Tossa was delightful. The Gran Hotel Reymar, situated at the north end of the bay, is a dream. The views are breathtaking, the hotel is immaculate, reception staff friendly and helpful. The Reymar is impressive in most areas. What a shame the excellence doesn't extend to the kitchen. The buffet breakfast looks impressive. The lunch and evening menus read well but are very poorly executed. Quite simply the food is not worthy of a 4 star hotel. Some of the younger restaurant staff have an unfortunate off-hand attitude.
Mattress toppers are uncomfortable and noisy and should be reviewed.

We just got back from this wonderful hotel. Being quite a spoiled brat, I'm used to frown upon anything and everything which costs and doesn't deliver. While I could of course find points to frown upon - overal impression is - great.

Very friendly staff, very decent restaurant, clean pool. Rooms show some signs of wear and tear, but are neatly and tidily kept and cleaned. We had half pension, you can choose between lunch or dinner, you can eat extra at extra cost without having to arrange anything. Lunch and dinner aren't buffet style, you get to pick from 4 courses (3 choices per course, sometimes more for dessert).

Extra services, games, whatnot, decent facilities. Practically on the beach, 5 min walking distance from Tossa center.

One minor min point - safes. They are provided by a 3rd party and you have to pay extra and in cash. Would love to see those either included or arranged next time.

We didn't try the spa, though.

Other than that - definitely on the list of "to come back to" places.
