After a hectic weekend in Barcelona we drove up the coast to Tossa de Mar for a quiet few days,
well so did a few hundred other people the place was buzzing, on the day we arrived (Monday) the streets were packed and to get to the hotel we had to drive through little streets milling with people, arriving at our hotel which is situated under the walls of the castle and right on the edge of the beach, we were greeted in the street by our host and were shown the one and only parking space outside the hotel which is used for unloading only. Once we were unloaded we were given a map which showed all the car parks in the area and we were given advice on the different charges we opted for one which was about five minutes walk away and cost 5e a day. Returning to the hotel and our room we stood and looked out of the window which overlooked the pathway up to the castle, tables and chairs which belonged to the hotel a low brick wall and the beach which was packed with sun bathers and people waiting for the ferries and pleasure trips children screaming and laughing it was brilliant a real holiday atmosphere,
It got quieter in the evening and through the week,
The hotel is small, the room we had was small but adequate the room was serviced every day,
shower no bath, the staff were frendly and helpful we had breakfast included and was the usual continental assortment which we ate outside overlooking the beach ,wonderful! It suited us wrinklies as everything was within walking distance of the hotel

thank you for your review.
As you said, in August there are lot of people in Tossa, actually, it is high season, that means that you need to wait for restaurant, you must get up early to get place on the beach, etc, etc...Normally live in Tossa 6,000 people in for that time we are between 20,000 or 25,000.
So if you come in August don't expect to be alone on the beach. That doesn't happen from the 50's.
Also for the "tossencs", ( people from Tossa), that is the worst time although is good for business. Also for us is crazy to move around the village and we also need to wait for anything we need to do. So we understand you.
For next time is better if you planning your vacation in June or September when the atmosphere is quite and there are less people. Then, for sure, you will get the real live of Tossa that is wonderful with very hepful people.
Thank you again.
