“Go to tossa De Mar you wont be dissapointed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This hotel is a 3* but it is at the top end of a three star accommodation. The staff are second to none, towels changed daily, rooms spotlessly clean. There was always something to eat, rather than saying the food was not to your taste, they are feeding many cultures with a big variety of food so try something different.
Reception staff are so helpful they sorted several matters out for us, no hesitation they were on the case straight away. We will be going back to Tossa De mar and this will be our choice hotel, plus the price was right for the time of the year.

Room Tip: In the bathroom there is a maintenance shaft and you can hear the people talking quite loud in the n...

Hotel was very clean. Rooms made spotless every morning by cleaning staff. Large variety of food for breakfast and dinner. Small selection for lunch time. So better for half board stay. Entertainment in the evening was poor (someone singing to a track behind a keyboard). Tosse De Mar also doesn't have any night life. Swimming pool not large but adequate because beach is only 5 minute short walk away. Reception staff were helpful when asked them. Although you could tell the staff were used to Spanish/ french and German customers, they were able to communicate minimal amounts in English. Overall a nice, relaxing stay.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony with pool view room or you could get one of the worse rooms looking into an apartm...

Absolutely love this resort! It reminded my husband and I of st.ives in Cornwall. Very pretty surroundings, narrow and winding streets with a fabulous choice of shops ranging from tourist "tat", to high end jewellery. Everyone really friendly and a complete hassle free resort. At no point were we hassled in shops or accosted outside restaurants, which made such a great change and is a real plus. Very easy to get a coach into Barcelona and well worth an early start. Lots of lovely places to eat and great opportunities to go walking and exploring the castle and its surroundings.
Now for the 'Hotel Costa Brava'!!
VERY noisy hotel. The evening entertainment is extremely loud and on average goes on until midnight; walls are paper thin and you can even hear when the people next door are cleaning their teeth! Staff are not over helpful and certainly did not go out of their way to help us with our return travel arrangements. We were bed and breakfast and this was ok, but breakfast was only ok. Hotel had very few British people staying and the European guests were extremely noisy, especially late into the evening when we wanted to sleep. On the plus side, the hotel is very clean and the rooms are of a good size.
Highly recommend Tossa as a resort, but would not recommend this hotel if you like a good nights sleep as part of your relaxing holiday!!

Just returned from an 8 night stay at the Hotel Costa Brava; our first time in Tossa De Mar. This is a lovely hotel and provides excellent facilities, was spotlessly clean and rooms serviced and fresh linen/towels provided daily. We found all the staff to be pleasant and courteous.

We stayed on a half board basis and found it very good value for money, with a variety of foods available to suit all tastes. I agree with earlier reviews that the cooked food wasn't served very warm, and usually this would be a problem for me as I am fussy about food being served hot. However, the food was varied and tasty and other than this, it was fine.

There is a good size pool, although it is very cold at this time of year. There's a lovely small indoor spa pool just off the main pool area, which was great for a quick dip when you got a bit too hot in the sun. The pool area was quite shaded until mid-day with limited beds in the sun before then, but this may change during the hotter months.

We had paid for and requested a room with a pool view and on a higher floor, which we were allocated - 3rd floor, room 331, which was brilliantly located to benefit from the late afternoon/ evening sun.

The only negative comment I have, which has been mentioned previously, is that the walls between the rooms do not provide any soundproofing whatsoever (particularly when in the bathroom!), which was a problem when trying to get to sleep. I could hear the guy next door snoring as if he was in our room!! It might not be a problem to all but we did find this affected us when we were in our room at night-times and early mornings.

Tossa De Mar is a lovely resort and the hotel is approx. 100m from the seafront, which provides a nice leisurely stroll after breakfast and in the evening when the castle/settlement are is all lit up. We enjoyed our stay in Tossa De Mar and would recommend to all; we would probably return to the Hotel Costa Brava if it was at the right price and if it was again at a quieter time of year. The only thing that may put me off is the memory of lying awake with a pillow over my head trying to block out the noise of the guests next door!!

Room Tip: Room 331 has a great pool view and sun in late afternoon/evening - a little sun trap!

Been coming to Tossa for quite a few years and generally stayed here or in the Oasis (not this year due to funds but found the Horta Rosell a cheaper substitute) which is their sister hotel. The staff are great from Cristina in the reception (who has been working there forever) to Juani in the dining room.
It's quite a big hotel and if you go half board there is always something that you will find to eat.
The pool area is great with a bar (bit pricey) and although a bit cool in the morning is lovely in the afternoon after coming off the beach.
The rooms are great, with all you need and very, very clean.
The actual bar is again quite pricey but there are lots of little bars in Tossa that you can drink in without spending a fortune. Right in front of the hotel are two or three. This year we found the Romantic bar great, right near the bus station.
Would definitely recommend the Costa Brava, especially if you have children.

Group of us stayed at the hotel last month. 2 double rooms and 1 single. I would say that all of the rooms were pretty decent. 1 of the doubles (ours) had just had the bathroom upgraded to a very high standard. Spotlights and a very plush shower. 2 of our rooms faced the front, having balconys overlooking the quiet street the other overlooking the pool. Nice little pool too, although you do have to follow the sun around if staying for a few hours. The location of the hotel is handy for everything. If coming by transfer from the airport, the pickup/drop off is literally 1 minutes walk away. Shops, bars and beach all within a few minutes walk. My only criticism would be some of the meals. Breakfast was generally pretty good. Decent choice of breads, cerial and hot and cold choices from the buffet. However dinner not so good. We found the food a little repetitive and certainly could be hotter. One night was very poor in particlar, where several items did'nt seem to be cooked properly. That though, would'nt stop me staying again, although I would proberly eat out a couple of nights next time. Certainly plenty of choice in the town. This was my first visit to Tossa and what a lovely place. Lots to do, everyone very friendly and the scenery and town stunning. Hope to return next year.

Room Tip: 4th floor or higher for best views.
