Just returned from staying at the Golden Bahia with my wife and 3 year old for 11 days and overall had a good time at what is a nice hotel. Travelled with Thomson (Rep Sam was very efficient and good to deal with) on an all inclusive.
Most of the reception staff weren't particularly warm and welcoming and managed to forget an early morning call on the day we left, whereas the animation team headed by Christian were brilliant and worked their socks off and were good fun.
There are shows most nights in the Capri bar/theatre, most of which are ok (The Temptations were brilliant), however the view is very bad due to the many pillars with one practically right infront of the stage.
Service overall is a little on the slow side, but not bad. It seemed that a small few didn't understand how to smile especially one barman named Lobsan who was awkward and put out by polite and reasonable requests/orders.
If you are staing all inclusive, be careful what is included as certain things come with a discounted price. In most cases you are asked to sign a chitty. On one occasion we retuened to the hotel from a trip and went to the snack bar to order some food at 3pm (main restaurant closes at 2.30). We ordered a bowl of pasta but were told that we had to pay, however at 4pm it would be free???? Work that one out!
The room was quite nice. A little on the small side with 2 double beds and lacked a few small touches such as tissues and a child proof lock as my 3 year old was able to open the main door and escape!
The food is good with a pretty good range to suit all tastes, however as in all all inclusive hotels you start to get sick of it after a while! Omar cooks great eggs and omelettes. The biggest fault with the restaurant is that there are too many tables packed very closely together and it is sometimes awkward to get in and out with people sitting so close.
The pool is good with plenty of loungers. Unattended towels left in the morning are removed by reception. Hotel towels can be rented from the Spa for a 10Euro deposit and 1Euro to change. BE VERY CAREFUL WALKING AROUND THE POOL IN BARE FEET AS WHEN ITS WET IT IS LETHAL! I couldn't understand why most mornings at 10ish the area was sometimes being washed down. Surely this should have been done late at night or very early to avoid this hazard?Lifeguard on duty all day.
Childrens swings and climbing frame/slide was really all their was for younger children which was disappointing, especially when a lot of space was wasted with a 70's crazy golf. This area could be improved to make a huge improvement.
Tossa is a lovely town and the Golden Bahia looked to be by far the best hotel on offer, although the location is a good 10 min walk from the beach, which is very gritty and has a steep shelf - not great for small children. If you are into going to the beach, maybe Tossa is not the best place to visit.
