“Tossa Centre Hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

When we arrived in Tossa de Mar, coaches were not allowed to go down the narrow streets into the town and dropped us off at the bus station. Everyone asked how to get to their hotels but the Spanish driver spoke no English and some 20 couples set of pulling suitcases. After about 20 mins, we found our hotel.
Check in was quick and efficient and we were given a double room with balcony. Double room! a Wendy House has more floor area than that room. The double bed was pushed into an alcove with one side up to the wall. Whomsoever slept on that side had difficulties getting out. There was only one bedside cabinet. If the bed and cabinet were pushed up to the wall, then the room door would just open. If either were one half inch out of place, the room door would not open. (Surely, that's a fire risk?)
With the wardrobe and dressing table, there was not enough room for two people to stand on the floor at the same time.
The bathroom was 'small'!. Be careful using the shower. It's very powerful and there's no shortage of hot water. The bath is small and the toilet is next to the bath. Be careful not to put your foot into the toilet pan as you leave the shower!.
The balcony. BEWARE!. The room floor is 9" lower that the balcony floor so so practice that manoeuvre before you've been to the bar!.
The hotel is spotlessly clean. The food is average. The hot food is cold and it's the same every day. Can't go wrong with the salads!.
Tossa de Mar is a lovely town with plenty to see. It's a pity this hotel spoils it. It's the only noisy one in the village. This hotel is not a 4*. 2* at best.
We spotted some really nice hotels and would try one of those if we go there again. Would certainly not consider this hotel again.































Room Tip: The rooms are very small. The bathroom is functional but can accommodate only one at a time. There...

Just got back from a week in Tossa de Mar. I was really nervous about this hotel as I had read many horror stories. The hotel is really clean and the staff were nice and friendly. We spent every day at the beach as both swimiing pools were quite busy especially the Tossa Beach Hotel pool. Tossa Centre was definitley the quieter of the two hotels. We ate breakfast at the hotel which was fine. There was always plenty of choice so the reviews that I read about there not being much choice, I would like to know what they usually ate for breakfast!. You had continental, English breakfast, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, tea, coffe, juice. We only ate once at lunchtime which again was fine, but did not eat at the hotel iin the evening. The only thing that spoilt our breakfast experience was it felt like you were eating in a canteen. With that said you could not fault the efficient staff in clearing away and setting out new cutlery etc. The hotel could do with a comfortable seating area in the reception area and I would imagine if you went in the height of the season it would be manic!. Tossa de Mar itself is beautiful. There are many nice restaurtants and bars, especially near the Castle. The beaches were great and although a bit stoney, we thorougly enjoyed our holiday.

Room Tip: Try and stay at the Tossa Centre Hotel.

By the look of some of the pictures the Tossa Beach hotel has made a lot of improvements. Modern room with modern and new bathroom facilitates, Great power shower, but totally useless hairdryer, so take your own. The swimming pool gets crowded and is not spacious to either relax or walk around, due to the position of the pool you have to do musical beds to get the sun all day. The food is of a good standard, not the best that I've eaten, but enough choice to get by. The staff, who are mainly other nationalities are great and very helpful, however the Spanish restaurant manger was less then inviting, to be honest he was miserable and rude all week and never engaging in his customers, but barking orders to all the other staff. What you get from this Hotel is a good 3 star hotel, that is 5 min walk to a lovely beach, 2 minutes, form shop, bars and Restaurants and the rest of this lovely resort of Tossa Del Mar

We stayed at the Mar Bella hotel which is an annex to the Tossa Beach/Tossa Center but the Mar Bella does not have a restaurant or bar so food is taken at Tossa Beach and drinks are taken at the Tossa Beach or Tossa Center so I can only comment on drink/cleanliness etc at Tossa Center. Staff were lovely at this hotel and the service in the bar superb. Nice seating area beside the very small pool and also beside the road at the front of the hotel.

Never done this before so here goes.....a nice clean hotel located near the centre of TOSSA. Rooms were adequate and food was desirable. The staff were robust rude and abrupt with a management team who wanted to run a strict militant regime. They were rude to customers including myself and I feel didn't put there customer service skills first!!! I asked to speak to the general manager and all he wanted to do was finger wag and speak to me like I was a nobody.....wrong person to pick on fella that's why you had 3 henchmen come to back you up!!!! I will credit the hotels for the cleanliness however the rest was rubbish. If you want a strict militant holiday go to TOSSA beach if not STAY WAY CLEAR!!!!

I don't normally write reviews, I only read them. But felt the need to voice my thoughts. This is not a family hotel, it is a prison. The male Spanish staff were very rude, unhelpful and to be honest quite intimidating. Especially when they tried to gang up on my mother because we were having a bit I'd fun in the pool, which isn't a pool. So if you want a good family holiday in tossa, choose another hotel. This place stinks .....

if you want to have a fun filled family holiday,Do Not go there.The staff are more like prison warders,there are a list of rules as long as your arm,and the entertainment is rubbish.
This hotel is the last place that you would want to take a child over 11years old,because if heaven forbid they may want to enjoy themselves,you will get a problem.
The swimming pool is too small and gets no sun for most of the day,there are organised games for children but only for those under 6 years,the older kids are restricted to playing pool or PlayStation
and thats only if there are no spanish people waiting to play then the waiters will throw the non spanish kids off .I honestly could not relax in the place or felt able to leave my 12 year old boy unattended as it seems to me the waiters and staff were constantly bullying the older kids.
The food was ok but it is definitely the low end of the all inclusive market,and heaven help you if you were to try and get a drink for more than two persons(even though they were quite aware there were 2 adults and 1 child in my party,oh and whatever you do DONT spill a drink,The attitude of the staff with the exception of the kids entertainers left a whole lot to be desired and there was one particular barman whose attitude was downright rude.Be warned don't even consider this place if you have children................oh and you want them to enjoy themselves.
