“Another pleasant stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We had no worries rebooking our stay again, we last visited 2 years ago. This time we were 7 people booking 4 rooms for various lengths of stay. Five of us arrived in two cars for 6 nights, 2 flew in for 4 nights before going onto Barcelona. This hotel really knows how to make you feel welcome for your stay, rooms very clean, but all the staff look after you and are friendly. Breakfasts very good with loads to choose from,very good fresh coffee from machines. Tossa is very good value because it has kept its prices in check. On a night we had some excellent meals in good class restaurants for as little as 18 euros by picking the menu of the day 3 courses. All of us hope to return again to Tossa and this hotel

We stayed here only one night, so didn't get to enjoy the jacuzzi and rooftop pool, but the hotel is nice enough. It is clean and the staff are nice and friendly. The room is nothing to shout about but it is a decent size and has a nice balcony. My only problem was the noise (but to be fair, I am a light sleeper...my husband snored right through). Had a really hard time sleeping as there is constant loud noise - motorcycles and cars revving, seagulls screeching in the early morning, people talking late at night, etc. My sister stayed in another side of the hotel and also had the same issue. There is a good shutter to block out the light, but it wasn't as effective on the noise.

The breakfast is also pretty good and there is a convenient wine/grocery shop right across. If you are driving, you can park on the streets, assuming you can find a parking space. Otherwise, it is 12E per day in the hotel lot.

Location-wise, it's quite good. It is a short walk through the town to the beach with lots of restaurants and shops around. Perhaps our expectations of the beach were pretty high as we had heard a lot of good things about Tossa de Mar. However, we were underwhelmed by the beach. We preferred Tamariu and the other beaches around Begur instead of Tossa de Mar. The old town was pretty nice though, with some nice restaurants located on the walk towards the top.

Overall, a nice stay but if we ever returned, I would choose a beachside location instead.

I have been visiting Tossa de Mar for over 35 years and have stayed at several hotels and apartments. For a week's stay, I love Hotel Florida. The family who owns it are very particular that everything is perfect. They spent over $200,000 the past winter on updates and improvements. The rooms are immaculate, the beds are very comfortable. You can't beat the buffet breakfast. Merce, who is usually at the front desk, is always ready with a smile and a recommendation, if you like. I felt like I was staying with family. There is an elevator. The hotel is not on the beach, but you can see the beach from the balcony and it is only a 2 block walk. There is a bar and a solarium on the main floor for coffee, tea, aperitifs or after dinner drinks. Ferran, the bartender and grandson of the owners, is the best bartender! The price is so reasonable. There is a splash pool, hot tub and lounging area on the roof which is wonderful after a day of sightseeing. I usually rent an apartment for a long stay, but I LOVE the Hotel Florida for a shorter stay. I highly recommend this wonderful establishment.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

We stayed in Hotel Florida for a week from mid-July. Great experience. Hotel Florida is a little gem. Very friendly and helpful staff in family-owned establishment. Very close to beach and location gives one a sense of being in a village as the town is up behind the hotel. We had two rooms and the best room was on the front of the hotel on 2nd floor as we had sun throughout the day. There was a good choice for breakfast. We really enjoyed the jacuzzi on the roof-top. Brilliant for soothing aches after long day's walk on coastal path to Lloret de Mar. We would certainly recommend Hotel Florida for lovely atmosphere and very reasonable price. Tossa de Mar is a superb find - lovely beach, intimate atmosphere, great value in restaurants. Go before it changes too much. Very convenient for Girona airport, just a bus-ride away.

Room Tip: Choose room to front of hotel on 2nd floor for daylong sunshine and a good night's sleep.

Very nice, well-situated, clean and cosy hotel near the seaside, providing an easy access to the beach. Our room was cleaned daily, it was a wide one with a double bed as like we requested in our booking. There was a huge 2-side balcony viewing on the parking and a street, which was nice to have. Parking itself was fully booked every day but still it was manageable to keep the car there and go out during the day. It was cheaper than the parkings around (12 euros vs 15) so we were satisfied. The personnel at the reception as well as during the breakfasts was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay, there was nothing negative to say. So what else should we need?

Room Tip: Corner room (Nr. 109 for example) is quite comfortable while staying in couple

This was our fourth stay at Hotel Florida and we can't think of anywhere that would be better in Tossa de Mar. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast has a nice choice and everything is very civilised, unlike some other hotels nearby!
The location is very close to the beach, the shops and the many restaurants. There is good air conditioning and it was needed with the wonderful weather we had.
It is good value for money and we had a great time.

We had a blast in Tossa de Mar, it's a beautiful beach town and Hotel Florida was just minutes away. They were very friendly and helpful -- accommodated our kids and random requests with a smile. The price was right, the room was spacious and simple and clean. The breakfast was great and it was just an all-around great experience.
