“BEAUTIFUL LOCATION”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2011

W hat a lovely little hotel in an absolutely beautiful location. We had a lovely stay here in a room overlooking the main beach, so the view was amazing with the sea in front and the castle and old town to the right.Breakfast was really good with a great selection and the choice of being able to eat out on the terrace in the early morning sun....fantastic. Very friendly and helpful staff who were always willing to help, as we had an early morning return flight, someone was on hand to give us breakfast.Room was average size and cleanliness was first class. All in all a memorable stay in a memorable little hotel. We visit Tossa every year and have stayed in various hotels but this has to be one of the best.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the beach.

We stayed for 4 nights and it was excellent. The Management and staff were first class,the room we had overlooked the sea and beach and was very clean and comfortable and the views were just brilliant. The breakfast was excellent and when we needed early breakfast it was never a problem and everyone was very helpful. Will certainly return and it made for a perfect short break

Very friendly manager Maria was helpful and welcoming, made our stay very relaxed. Breakfast was generous and taken on the lovely terrace overlooking the beach. The room was spotlessly clean and the location right under the old town walls and next to the beach is ideal. Would definatly return.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the beach

This is simply the best place to stay in Tossa. The beach is 50 metres away and the hotel itself is almost part of the fortifications of the historic castle. The hotel is cosy and you can feel in every detail the attention of the family who runs the place who are really nice people. The staff is friendly and they never seemed to be disturbed by our 2 noisy children :-). The breakfasts by the seaside were Ok and very good value which is true overall. As previous reviewers correctly stated you do not need a pool if you stay here as the sea is so close. I always felt that the vast majority of Spanish seaside hotels are high-rise blocks of flats, Cap d'Or is a great exception.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview, most rooms have it.

Stayed here in the height of the season for a whole week and loved it. Lovely hotel, fabulous staff who looked after us extremely well. No problem with noise as it is so lovely to hear all the people on the beach having such fun. Breakfast was a joy, sitting outside with a sea view. Glad we stayed here as we found so many more brilliant restaurants and bars which we missed previously as we stayed at the other end of town. In short - loved it.

From the moment we arrived till the moment we left the staff did everything to make us at home and welcome. This is a simple old fashioned hotel but it all works. But be warned it is on the beach and directly below the rooms, walk people going to and from the old town, so it is not silent. If you can live with this you should be delighted. Breakfast was a delight.

Thank you for your nice review and for your stay in the hotel.

The hotel is located in the old town, below the castle and opposite the beach. The fortified area was declared National Artistic Historic Monument on 1931, and it is the emblem of the village. That means that all people who come to Tossa visit the Vila Vella during day or night.
The hotel belongs to the fortified area, so we can't avoid the people walking around, but we work very hard to avoid any noisy inside the hotel.
As a historic hotel, we are aware about the limitations and restrictions we have when we need to make some works, ( any work in the hotel involve the National Heritage department in Madrid) but also we, ( the 4th generation of the family), are so pround to be in the old fisherman's family house.
This family run hotel has never claim to be a luxury or 5 star hotel. We like guests spend the best time in the hotel with comfortable rooms and home made food.

Thank you again.

We stayed for 4 nights and found the hotel to be perfectly situated to see the old town and sitting eating breatfast overlooking the beach was gorgeous. The staff were all very friendly and we were lucky to have the only room with a small balcony. The room was very comfortably sized for a short stay and well looked after. Having seen a bad review concerning room 111, we were shown this room too and while there is not the same sea view, the room itself was equally good and since we were spending many hours on the beach, I can't imagine our holiday would have been any less enjoyable in that room. The breakfasts were great - try the cheesecake if you get the opportunity! - the boat trip and the little beach just a bit away from the crowds that the owner recommended to us were also fantastic. All in all a great stay.
