“The helpful and friendly personnel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Well, my family stayed in this hotel three times. The hotel isn't in the noisy center of town but only ten minutes from Grand beach by foot. The hotel have two pool: one is big and one for kids. Also it have two tennis courts. We've booked a room with a terrace. The room is no big but very clean (it's cleaned everydays). There are a small fridge and a free bar (always refill) in the room. The breakfast is lavish: alot of fruits, juices, yogurts, cereals and more. But one biggest plus "Marina Tossa" is its personnel. They are always patient, helpful and friendly! We'll choose this hotel next time.

The coach from Girona airport dropped us right outside the hotel gates. The hotel is a good 10 minute walk from the beach and old town but I quite like the exercise so that suited us. The pool is huge, one of the biggest I've seen in Tossa, it's cleaned everyday and the big grassed area surrounding the pool & bar always has plenty of space and always free sun loungers.
We were lucky enough to get a free upgrade on our room, from a standard room to a room with a balcony & pool view, I would probably opt for a superior room next time as the balcony was quite small. I was delighted to discover that the beds were really comfortable as I usually have trouble sleeping. Also, the location of the hotel meant that it wasn't as noisy as some of the other hotels I've stayed at in Tossa. The hotel and room was very clean, I didn't see any dirt anywhere!!
Breakfast was lovely, with fresh fruit, toast, yogurts, coffee, juices, cereals and best of all lots of delicious pastries!
The staff were always very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was pleasant. Wifi is in the bar area only. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Marina Tossa and after staying at 3 other hotels I would definitely choose this one in future.

Room was tiny, no terrace or balcony, the shower flooded each time it was used and was tiny. Overall the room reminded us of a prison cell! The noise of slamming doors etc starts about 7.30 am & doesn't stop, a noisey group of 30 school children were staying for a school trip which added to this! My husband couldn't sleep at all, I was o.k as I have earplugs!

We paid around 49 euros per night and feel ripped off, it wasn't worth half that for the room we had. We asked to see an upgraded room with a balcony but didn't upgrade as it wasn't much better, all the rooms are very dated and in need of an upgrade.

There is very little to do in Tossa de mar and it's an expensive place to be, we went to Barcelona after this and food prices were similar but the quality in Barcelona was much improved! We visited in early June and the whole place was dead, no atmosphere whatsoever, we wouldn't return.

The 2 positives were the staff at the front desk were helpful and the breakfast buffet was good quality.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

During the summer of 2010 between leaving college and Univerisity I completed a work placement here over the summer. Like all hotels this hotel has many pros and cons and as a student I think it is important not to be bias and tell you how it is.

Excellent location with very generous pool. Roomsre cleaned daily , however some are outdated and do not come with air conditioning. We had to buy fans to keep us cool within our rooms. Prices are reasonably priced with a reasonable selection of food.

Pool tables , internet access and large quantity of drinks available on demand (to be paid for).

5 minute walk from the beach meaning it is suitable for families who do not want to be disturbed from the night clubs. Staff are all English speaking and will help you day or night if you have any problems.

Should be really 4* as I´ve stayed in 4* hotels before who do not offer services such as drink ordering from the pool where as this hotel offers this.

having just got back from this one star hotel we have nothing but praise for it, stayed for 2 weeks bb in an upgraded room:
aircon
mini bar [coke, water, fanter.]
small balcony
pool view [east facing]
[if you want a larger balcony with pool view then ask for the annexe,other large balconies carpark/garden view south facing]
room very clean
towels changed daily
breakfast plentyfull
bar-cafe area very good
staff very good
two tennis courts
large grassed pool area, best in tossa [no music,no rows of sunbeds shoulder to shoulder.]
large pool [very clean]
quite spacious location
all in all a very good find. having stayed in tossa before at a 4star hotel, the hotel marina was the best of the two.
yes there where a couple of minor faults but this would be nit-picking
would we go back. yes.

Room Tip: superior rooms are the best. aircon,mini bar [coke,water, fanter]

We were not expecting too much from this last minute holiday to the Marina hotel but were really pleasantly surprised.although the rooms were small and basic they were very clean and towels and shower curtain was changed daily.The hotel was quiet and well maintained and the breakfasts were as good as some 4 stars we have been in.The evening meals were sometimes boring but always fresh and plentiful.
Well done to all the staff there for quietly doing a very good job.
We would go again.

Tossa de Mar is a great place to visit, specially if you are hoping to do a quick and relaxing day trip from Barcelona. In this case we came for the day and loved it so much that we decided to stay the night. So for a last minute booking the hotel worked well for us, however there is a few things that might be worth mentioning. The hotel is a good half mile from the beach and the main restaurants - you will definitely be walking this distance since there is very little parking near the beach and it is rather expensive if you find a spot. There is ample free parking near the hotel but if you want to feel more secure, the hotel offers on site parking for a fee (€10) plus you need a deposit for the key.

The hotel has a great pool and there is plenty of space to soak up the sun. The room we had was renovated, so it was great for a one star hotel. Overall, the room was clean and well furnished but there was no soundproofing of any kind. You could hear everything in the hallway, the washroom, the neighboring rooms, etc. The place was very quiet at night and we had a good sleep, however as soon as someone got up in the morning it was all over - don't expect to be able to sleep in here.

There is free Wifi but it only really works "in the bar" (if it works at all). The breakfast service was average and we had a mixed experience with the staff. Some staff were very helpful and some others were just cranky and difficult to deal with.

I will say that overall, it is a great place to stay for a one star and it works well if you are not looking for something fancy.

Room Tip: get one of the renovated rooms overlooking the pool.
