“Golden Bahia de Tossa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Stayed 08-06 - 15-06 with my partner and his family. Could not fault the hotel beautiful in and around the area. We were staying on the fifth floor poolside room all inclusive. The resturant was great for meals - the manager of the resturant managed his staff brillantly they were all very polite and happy looking throught out the holiday, during the end of the week we ate out as the meals do become quite repetitive but could not fault the quality. The bar staff throughout the day and night were very well mannered with table service and along with the smile various bars you could sit in and chill out for the evening. The entertainment staff were brillant and the choice of activities they offered around the poolside and the evening entertainment spot on, quite enjoyed the lord of the dance, greece and michael jackson tribute. The pool area is so quiet with the amount of people sunbathing, I could easily fall asleep under the brolley and forget about everything. The town of tossa is so beautiful make sure you take the 'happy train' up to the top of the castle and look at the breathtaking views'. The rep of the hotel was a let down be warned she will try and tell you to go to the only english bar in tossa MICK and JULIES do not listen to this very expensive, rude mannered people go find CHAPLAINS BAR open until 3am with cheap drinks and a very charming barman. Took a trip out to barcelona overpriced soled by rep do please go independently you can get a return ticket from the bus station and spend your leisurely experience of barcelona by yourself.
Overall enjoyed the holiday and would happy to try the chain hotel in a differnt country.

Room Tip: Do not believe everything the Rep says, there is not one english bar in tossa, do try chaplains bar...

Our impressions of the hotel are only positive.
First of all we’d like to note the exceptional qualities of the reception staff. When we got in a difficult situation they were more than eager to come to our help, and did it in a most effective and quick way, with cordiality and willingness to help. Once again we would like to thank Jordi, Nastya and Josef.

Just back from holiday at this hotel (booked through Thomsons). Really can't fault it. Room clean & comfortable, can't remember having so many hot showers!! That is, the shower stays at the same temperature throughout. The food? so much choice it's difficult to know where to start - something for everyone. you won't want lunch as there's so much to have for brekkie there's only room for an ice cream during the day. Evening dinner? again so much choice & you can mix up however you want, so if you don't like fish & the meat options don't appeal you can get cold meats & cheese from the salad bar & add hot veg. Don't want an entire bottle of wine with one meal? You can save what you don't drink for the next night. Entertainment good, bingo a bit confusing (in 3 languages) there's a 'chill out' bar if you want to relax with a quiet drink. Pool area clean & lots of sunbeds. Near to bus station, you could even get to Barcelona for the day, town & beach within easy walking distance. Would definitely go back

Just returned from this hotel and had a great time, yes it is about a 10 minute walk from the sea front and there are no sea views but the pool view is very peasant to wake up to in the morning. Weather was perfect all week with no rain till the day we came home so can't grumble at that. Very clean hotel with very friendly staff, rooms cleaned to a high standard. Food is very spanish but you can always find something you can eat, my favourite is breakfast and there is plenty to choose from with champagne every morning which is a plus. There is always plenty of sunbeds and loads of space around you. The pools were a bit chilly so didn't stay in to long, we decided to sunbath on the roof (not in the nudest section) where there are 2 jacuzies which seemed to be a lot warmer and as it is adults only we had no children running around. There are atleast 3 bars but we preferred the Piano bar again adults only. The drinks we found to be not to expensive. The town of Tossa is very spanish with only 1 english bar Mick & Julie it had all the sport channels on and very reasonable priced if you were a repeat guest they charged you less, there is also a good beach bar which did lovely Champagne Sangria great to just sit and look out to sea (wish I was back there). Quite a few shops to look around and a must is to climb up to the castle the views are amazing and walk through the old town up and down the cobbled streets we will definately return one day. All in all a brilliant holiday.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor with pool view you get the sun in the afternoon on the left side of the hotwl.

Stayed for a week 4th - 11th June. Hotel feels very spacious and was always clean.
Rooms are very spacious, and the pool area is great will plenty of beds.
One of the best things about this hotel is the staff, they were all truly great and very helpful (especially Mercedes in the bar and restaurant) one of the nicest workers I have ever met.

If you don't go for the all inclusive option, there a many many nice restaurants within 10mins walk of the hotel and are all very good value.

Please take a walk into the new and old town, towards the beech, you will not be disappointed, the restaurants and bars around there are worth it.

The evening entertainment is a bit hit and miss, but they always have something for the kids and stuff to do around the pool.

The food in the hotel is great, a great buffet mix for all, including a very impressive desert trolley.

Room Tip: Try and ask for a pool view room, otherwise the view onto the road is not great and can get a bit no...

I really don't understand why people have bad things to say about this hotel. We stayed 4/06/13-11/06/13 and it was amazing! Me (24) fiancé (26)and our son (2). The hotel is beautiful and spotless , room was a decent size with a big double and a single bed. Cleaned everyday.
The staff were lovely and friendly and there was evening entertainment every night, i would Definitely recommend watching the LORD of the DANCE... It was fab! Kids dance 8:30-9pm was my sons favourite time and they did songs and obviously dance!
The pool was freeeezing at first but once your in it wasn't too bad, the ends are shallow which was great for my son,they did have a kids pool too.
Dinner time ; dining hall was fab, we never struggled to get a seat, and there was sooo much food to choose from and it always tasted amazing! We are quite food fussy but not one night were we dissapointed! All freshly cooked and special done infront of you too. (Their jacket potatoes aswell were amazing haha)
It was a 5-10 minute walk really to the beach, but was through the town past the shops so it was a lovely little walk and really didnt feel long or an issue in anyway. It was a very quiet town with many little shops and restaurants. Not really any nightlife to be honest but we went for a quiet one anyway.the only thing I can say I was dissapointed with was the beach I didn't expect it to be as bad as what it was... It wasn't in anyway sand... But more stone/pebbles and dust ... Booo but I should of reviewed that a little more before I went. I would love to stay at this hotel again though =]

Stayed 16 - 23 May 2013. A nice clean hotel with good facilities but not one to choose for the views. Rooms overlooking the pool would be marginally preferable but not if the supplement is significant. The room was spacious and had plenty of wardrobe and shelf space. One real complaint was that no 'ladies' hangers were provided (or obtainable). (Clothes hangers with notches for hanging garments with loops). The reception did find one 'bent-wire' hanger which they let us have, but this is quite an oversight for a hotel of this standard.
The buffet-style meals were adequate and predictable but would have been a bit boring if we had elected for half board. Children's and evening entertainment was very good and a number of acts were very professional.
