“Newer property, good value but no old town charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Friendly and helpful staff considering it is a 'larger' hotel. Its not a cozy and intimate place, as it is a newer lower rise structure with modern amenities. Rooms and clean, modern, spacious and very comfortable. Reminds me of business type hotel. On vacation travel we like to get lost in the mystery and history of a place - that doesn't happen here. That said its very comfortable and good location with easy access to the old town, restaurants, pubs and minutes from the beach. Its a bit pricey if you don't spend much time in your room or at the property - and chances are you won't if you are on vacation to explore.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your review.

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. And your review will encourage us to keep improving our service in the future. You are totally right when saying hotel Delfin is a modern hotel, and we perfeclty understand that you would have loved an old cherm hotel, that is why, we would like you to check our sister hotel in Tossa de Mar: hotel Diana, which is an ancient building from 1906 located in front of the sea in the old town. We are sure you will love it.

We hope you come back soon to hotel Delfin or to Hotel Diana.

Please, remember that you will find the best rates and the best booking conditions in our official website.

Please, do not hesitate to contact any member of our staff for anything you might need.

On behalf of all the Hotel Delfin staff, thank you very much.

We have been to Tossa a number of times but this was our first stay at the Delfin but it will not be our last.
Loved the hotel. The staff are all a credit to the hotel especially the reception staff who were always so friendly and helpful. The Solarium with its hot tub was a very restful place and also a sun trap The room was comfortable and the bathroom really well appointed. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Last but not least was its position - just a few minutes walk from both the old town and the beach.
Cannot praise this hotel enough

Popped in for lunch as the hotel has a pavement cafe. We were served by Maria who went out of her way for us and is very friendly and helpful.
We ordered the most delicious salads and was so impressed we called in everyday for coffee and cake on special €3
The toilets are immaculate as is the hotel. Because of the lovely welcome and service from Maria we plan to stay at the Delfin. We visit Tossa three times a year and was very impressed with the Delfin.
Thankyou for making our holiday Maria :)

We booked a hotel almost last minute to see Tossa de mar old town. The hotel is very central and close to bar, restaurant and Tossa De Mar old town (about 10 mins walk), beach and light house.
The staffs are very kind and helpful. We were lucky to get upgrade to suite room on 3rd Floor.
The breakfast is very good and plenty of choices. I will stay at hotel Defin again if I come back to Tossa De mar.

Room Tip: if you want quiet room ask for a room on 3rd floor.

Late booking and very happy with choice of hotel. Room at the back which was clean and comfortable with a small balcony and sea view. No late night noise and so slept well!
Good location for beach, shops, restaurants and bars. Hotel staff friendly and helpful - breakfast ok but not brilliant

I think you could not find a better location in this fun town. We had a nice sized room with a terrace overlooking the side street, quite at night, clean, and a good full bath. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful. When I asked the desk manager Marivy who had been extremely helpful, where could I get a beach umbrella (una parisol) she lent me hers for our three day stay.
An excellent place to spend a few dats!

My husband and I came to Tossa for our first time ever this past weekend. I went purely on TA recommendations- and chose this hotel- so glad we did. Location was perfect, breakfast delicious- and the staff was SO friendly and helpful. My white bathing suite was swept up with the towels and they found it within a couple of hours- I can't imagine that was an easy task.
They gave us perfect dinner recommendations each night- helped with our taxi to the airport and kept our room spotless. Our 1st floor room had a terrace overlooking the garden, which I liked since it was quiet. I will gladly stay here again- just need to investigate if they offer family sized rooms since we want to bring the kids next time! A/C was also really nice after a long day at the beach.
