We have just returned from the Neptuno after a 4 night stay. It is in a great spot in the oldest part of Tossa and the hill up to it which others reviewers refer to is ony a small one and no one needs to rush up it! As long as you are able bodied it is easily manageable. The reception staff speak english and are friendly, rooms and grounds are well maintained, the man who takes care of the garden/pool area worked hard and was trimming the lawns as we left at 7am! The hotel's public areas are nicely furnished and instead of the bland standards of modern hotels, it is uniquely done with lovely old wooden pieces and a suit of armour on display! It is a hotel with plenty of character and an authentic spanish flavour. We asked on our booking for a quiet corner room and got just that with a room on the fourth floor facing the sea at no extra cost.
The food is of an adequate standard and there is enough to eat, the BBQ on the Friday night was the best food although overall the food is not very inspiring and we wouldn't recommend booking if the food quality and choices are very important to you. However, we never went hungry and ate lunch in a different restaraunt each day and all those meals were delicious and reasonably priced.
There was entertainment on one evening which was a singer/keyboard player and it was perfectly pleasant and not too loud. Tossa itself is such a lovely place to stroll around that we went for a walk after dinner each evening and weren't expecting evening entertainment or looking for daytime activities at the hotel so we knew what to expect.
The Neptuno has an old fashioned charm and an international feel which meant it was much nicer for us than a typical package holiday where some hotels cater solely for brits and think we can't eat unfamiliar food or be with people other than english speakers!
I don't normally go back to places I have visited but would definitely return to the Neptuno and to Tossa.
Finally, can I make a heartfelt plea to anyone reading this. If you like dogs and lovely country parks please please consider going to the charity dogs home in Tossa and taking a dog or two for a walk in the beautiful area around the home where there is plenty of shade provided by trees. The staff at the dog's home only give visitors dogs that are gentle natured and perfectly safe but the animals excitement at being taken for a walk is a joy to see! They greet you with such delight and love being out even for a short time, they are all easy to walk even for people who aren't used to dogs. (We took four out over two days and all were easier to walk than our own pet!). There is no charge and staff don't expect anything from you in return, in fact they seemed surprised when I made a donation towards their work. There is no paperwork, they simply get the animals on a lead for you and off you go! There are staff from the dog's home on Tossa market on thursdays where they set up a little stand but it is easy to miss it. The home is called CAAS or Gossera Comercal and to get there you walk further out of town along the road where the market is and past the large campsite along the 'river'. it is signposted as either CAAS or Gossera Commercial at various points along the route and is about a fifteeen minute lovely walk through gorgeous countryside. You walk just past a water treatment plant (to the left of the path) and then the dogs will hear you arrive and bark to guide you in to see them! The staff there clearly love the dogs and gesture their thanks and although they don't speak English they show their appreciation. I am sure more people would take the time out from eating, sunbathing and shopping if they knew about the dogs so near to the resort so hopefully word will spread and the animals will benefit. Thanks for reading this review.
