“delfin hotel review sept 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I have visited Tossa previously and intended to revisit and due to its good reviews, stop at the Delfin. It did not disappoint!. Tossa itself is a lovely place to stay, there are no large corporate shops in the town, but lots of designer and boutique shops,so leave plenty of room in your case for clothes, shoes and handbags!.The town has no over loud "club bars", but loads of other great little bars and restaurants to sample. The hotel Delfin fits in perfectly with this image, being situated above boutique shops on the main shopping street. The hotel is immaculate in both decor and cleanliness. Staff were friendly and efficient, able to speak English, French and deal with my attempts at Spanish!.Book a suite if available, our suite had 3 balconies overlooking the street, so we could watch the world go by. I would say if you are a bit touchy about noise though, maybe ask for a room at the back of the hotel?, as the street is busy day and into the night..We ate in the hotel for breakfast only which was really nice with a wide range of options. Overall a fantastic hotel which i would highly recommend to anyone.

If you want to stay in the center of everything in Tossa de Mar, Delfin is the right choice. The beach is one block away, the shops, restaurants and bars are sorrounding you, and it's only a few minutes on foot to the central bus station. The rooms are nice if not luxurious, and the air condition system makes it possible to sleep soundly through the night even if loud traffic and louder people are very close. The rooftop offers desk chairs and a jacuzzi for those who find a two minute walk to the beach too much of a challenge. But this is a jacuzzi, and as a swimming pool it's nonfunctional!

The one thing that is truly depressing is the included breakfast. The orange juice dispenser shows a picture of oranges being squeezed, but the liquid this dispenser fills the glasses with was either bad oranges diluted 1:5 with water or some kind of industrial waste. The omelettes are made from similar stuff from cartons -- where are the eggs? Eggs and bacon were drowned in oil, the cheeses tasted nothing, and the coffee tasted bad. The hotel ought to close the breakfast room and cut the room price -- with the saved money we could have a more decent breakfast in a lot of places. People who applaud the breakfast cannot distinguish beetween a meal made from real stuff and automated food!

The reception people were helpful, and most of them spoke more than passable English.

Room Tip: Our room on the third floor eas quite fine, and the small balcony was all right for reading, enjoyin...

This hotel makes a wonderful change from the large tour company offerings. Rooms and beds were comfortable.All staff were pleasant, some more "Smiley" than others. Conchi was most helpful and always friendly coming and going.Breakfast was delightful. Many who criticise tend not to rotate their choices, they each a bit of EVERYTHING each day instead of rotating, so ignore any criticisms. We wanted small and non Thomson for a change and this ticked all boxes. Was nice to be sat amongst ALL nationalities instead of the whole hotel being full of Brits. Quiet location in the centre of Tossa. Thank you "The Delfin"
On the way up to the old town try the little cafe/restaurant Angela offering fixed menu of 11.50 euro's, we hesitated but for a simple supper and a delightful small family run place it was delightful, Hi Angela.........just incase you read this :)

Delfin is a great small hotel in Tossa de Mar. Thanks to the many Trip Advisor reviews, we booked this online and it lived up to some of the raves we saw on here. Very clean and, I have to say, I's surprised at some of the criticisms of the breakfast on here. It was absolutely fabulous, with a chef working the hot plates in the breakfast area producing hot eggs and bacon. Wonderfully presented throughout, from room through to restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful - even conversational if they had a free moment. We thoroughly recommend Delfin, which is right in the heart of the shopping area and only a few minutes walk from the beach and its famed castle.

Just got back from a lovely 3 days in Tossa de Mar. I booked this fairly last minute after reading several very good reviews about this hotel. The location is brilliant - just a 3 minute walk from the beach. The standard and presentation of the hotel was very good. Breakfast was also pretty good, with freshly cooked bacon and eggs available in addition to the usual continental stuff! As far as value for money this was hard to beat. My only small criticism was that we had a room with a connecting door which meant that we could hear the very noisy French people in the next room chatting all night. All in all - very good and we would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Dont have one with a connecting door!!! - this is a must!!

This hotel is in a great location - near to all the shops and the beach. The facilities were all spotlessly clean and well stocked. Great breakfast and dinner was of a good standard. My only criticism, as a person who speaks very little Spanish would be that some local information, in English, would have been appreciated.

Stayed there for a week at the beginning of September 2012. This hotel has a great location right in the centre of Tossa with all its amenities and is only a few minutes walk from the beach. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was good. My wife’s handbag was stolen from under one of the hotel’s outdoor tables on the street outside the hotel. The hotel staff were helpful and contacted the police for us to report the theft. The police advised us that there had been similar thefts reported to them on that day, so ladies mind your handbags when having a coffee on the street in Tossa.
