“Good price, Nice Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

We stay in this hotel in the second week of june.
We lost our flight so we arrive a day later at 11.30 a.m and our room was ready waiting for us....
The room had 2 double beds and is quite small but you are on holidays and usually you dont spend the days in your room so it Really doesnt matter the size! The housekeeper was brilliant she change our towels everyday, clean your room and bathroom every day and the bed linen once( if you are at home you not change your bed linen every day so......). There is not shower gel or shampoo and yes the toilet paper is really cheap but i stayed in the Holidays In Hotel in Luton and the shower gel and shampoo were the same thing that u took from a dispenser on the wall and we payed 130 pounds for one night, so i can not really complaint.....
There is a non smoking police inside the building (like in most countrys) but we ask in the reception and of course we could smoke in your balcony, the only thing they ask us was to close the balcony doors so the smoke and smell did not go inside the room ( fair enough who likes to sleep with cigaretts smell anyway???). The walls are really thin and yes you can hear even the people talking in the other room...
There is a charge of 10 euros for the keys of the fridge, a deposit of 30 euros for the t.v remote control and 12 euros for the wi-fi for a week.
Our room was just above the reception side by side with the poll area and the bar. At 11 p.m the staff ask the guests to go indoors to minimize the noise and the bar closes at 12 p.m sharp, so no more music or guests in the bar. The litle noise you can hear is from the guest going out to the nightclubs ( they are on holidays and they want to have fun) but there nothing the hotel can do as they are out of the permises! The entertainment is very poor but there was a day they had a couple dancing the Flamenco and Sevilhanas and it was good!!
The meals are ok, the food does not change that much from day to day but we manage to eat different food every day...
The swimming pool is small ( as you can see in the pictures) and the water is cold but the beach is just 5 minutes distance and in there the water is cold as well...
We had our expressos and drinks in the swimming pool area and it was ok for us...
The staff at the reception is very friendly and they speak very well english although as we were in Spain we took the opportunity to try and improve our spanish :) They gave us a map of the village and answer all the question we had about the hotel and Tossa. The rest of the staff not always very cheerfull but always polite.
Tossa is a beautifull village with little shops an amazing castle and old village. Is a place to relax and see the days go by.
For a nice meal of a typical Tossa dish(cim-i-tomba) go to BAHIA restaurant. The lady from the reception and the manager advise us to go there, and they were right! Was one of the best meals i had in a long time! Is a litle expensive but it was worth it!
To finalize i would not consider this hotel a 3 star hotel but for the price and in such a small village( Tossa de Mar is not a city as we thought so) i think is ok, they work hard to please their guests and to keep the place running.
If i would return? Yes definitely.

We travelled to the Tossa Beach at the beginning of June (during half term). The entrance and reception area looked lovely and we were directed to a room on the first floor of the Beach Hotel. The room in fairness whilst relativley small was lovely and modern. We had a look around the hotel and as it was a cloudy day on our arrival, the pool area looked like a prison yard as it is surrounded on 3 sides by the tall hotel buildings. Thus the pool never warmed, even on the sunniest of days - although this did not deter the children. The food is reasonable but bland and by the 4th day, you're ready to find alternatives. If only because the restaurant is in the basement and often smelt of damp near the air conditioners.

They had regular entertainment we found out the first night, which after the first night starts to sound the same, but unfortunatley for us, we were right above it!! After being up since 3am travelling, I did not want to hear the entertainment and then the clearing up (the chairs scraping constantly is unbearable!!!) till the wee hours!! The next morning I asked for a room change as we were travelling with our 2 sons who are 6 and 8 and they get up early, so we need our sleep, besides I thought I was on holiday to relax!! The first day we were told it was too busy to change us, the second day we were told we could move but it would cost us 80euros per room to change, we eventually spoke to the 'manager' on the 5th day, who told us 'you paid for those rooms, if you are not happy speak to your booking company', we couldn't believe his attitude. He then had the nerve to say no one ever complains about those rooms (even though the receptionist told us the first day, she knew we would complain about them as everyone did!!!!), the manager then told us not to shout at his staff, we had not once raised our vioces, just asked to speak to him several times, he told us he had been watching us on the cameras. We didn't ask again as we had heard horror stories about people being kicked out of the hotel for less!!!

The bar staff tried to be friendly but ended up coming across as abrupt and rude. The food guy almost smiled once, but I think it was wind, woe betide anyone who tries to get past him with wet feet!! The bar and snacks are all inside and you are not allowed in wet!! Even though it's next to the prison yard.

Tossa itself is beautiful and I would have returned again if this hotel and it's manager had not made it so unenjoyable for me and my family. I went home so tired from the sleepless nights that I am still recovering now.

I urge you not to stay at the Tossa Beach/Centre, we read the reviews but thought it would be ok but I just wished I'd taken more notice. Since we went the number of bad reviews has tripled - what does that tell you...................................

Room Tip: Specify anywhere except the first floor above the bar, but it won't matter as they put you where...

This hotel is very very clean,clean towels every day bedding changed a few times a week, the staff are all very friendly, food is edible but very repetitive. snack bar only opens at 10am until 12.30 then again at 3.30 until 5pm the food is nice enough. the entertainment is very very very poor, lots of Spanish singers on organs a few English songs at the end of the night!!!!!!!!!!! kids club isn't up to much but the staff try hard. the pool is very small and cold until you get shoulders under, the pool area in shaded on each side at different times of the day so you have to keep moving beds to get all day sun. the town is really quaint with cobbled streets, the views are stunning!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: bottom floor rooms have no balcony !!!!!!! not much sun on some balcony's during the day, depen...

The review from catherine f was spot on ! We are 4 adults and 2 small kids - Why would they put us above the function room ? The noise was horrendous ! We asked for a move but the manager said "you paid cheap,so you got the cheap room" In fairness the room was okay - It was all about the noise. When we went on to explain that if we were told this beforehand we could have paid extra or gone to a different hotel he lost his rag and told us either to put up with it, pay extra for a quieter room or leave his hotel (no monies returned). Discretion being the thing, we all bent over for the week. Needless to say - We won't be going to either of his hotels again - It was just the noise and the attitude of the manager. !

Room Tip: Go high if you can - but don't believe their e mails if they reply "yes you can have a 3rd...

Me and Hubby just wanted a short 3-4 days break, have been to Tossa before on a day trip, so knew little about the area.
Booked at last min and got a good deal for 3 nights AI for under £450 so couldnt complain at the price.
We flight was to Barcelona then to Tossa De Mer.. i did not know how far from the airport Tossa was, bear this in mind when traveling it will takeyou 1 hour to travel.. Because this was a late deal we booked i did not look tgis up as just wanted to get away.
There are 2 hotels Beach/ Centre , both facing each other on a small road that leads you to the beach you can walk to in around 5 mins so great location.
Arrived to hotel and the staff were very friendly both reception areas were very clean and really is a good set up there.
Rooms are operated by card, we stayed in 102 at the Beach Hotel.. that is a good room over looks the front of the hotel and has a sea view.
The room was very clean and tidy infact the whole hotel was very clean they didnt stop cleaning all day even outside the hotel, staff were very friendly all the time and helpful.
The beach is very coarse so be carefull will need beach shoes when on there, lovely surounding and plenty of bars and places to eat all around.
The Hotels food was okay you more or less get the same kind of thing every day with a little change with the evening meals drinks are on tap as always with AI, And the dining room is kept very clean while you are eating.
The pools now are really small i know it is by the beach and in the area the hotel is in only really has small Pools.
There is entertainment is okay at night and there is a kids club for the little ones.
there are loads of trips you can go on if wanted too and at good prices.
Apart from the small pools at the hotel and the harsh beach sand, the hotel and area is love lt really is and great for a couples break.
This is a good hotel and value for money and in a good location and would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing sea not the pool as pool is really small and not a good view

I have listed this as being a visit in September 2011 but in fact Hubby and I first stayed at the Tossa Beach Hotel back in September 2009 after being recommended by a friend who had just been that year (this is too long ago to add a review). We had not been on a 'beach' holiday before and as we had just been left some money by a relative we decided to give it a go. We were not dissappointed in the least. Our room was on the second floor at the front overklooking the road and the 'Sister' hotel the Tossa Centre. The room was very clean and comfortable and excellent for our stay. We arrived at 9pm which was when the dining room was closing but the staff held it open for us so that we could get something to eat after the flight and transfer. I willl eat just about anything but Hubby is quite choosy so I was a bit worried that he may not like the buffet idea but I need not have any fears. We never went hungry and felt there was enough variation that we did not get boraed with what was on offer Ever since we came back hubby has raved not only about the resort but also the hotel and especially the food and staff. We are not ones to stay where there are a lot of children sowhilst the entertainment area at the Tossa Beach is more child orientated we spent some evenings over the road at the Tossa Centre where there was a quiz and also films shown each night, We even won the quiz on the first time we went!
The beach and old town are very close and we vistited both every day during our week there. We witnessed a Beach Wedding one day and a triathalon on another so there was always something interesting going on.

As with some other reviews here is you are looking for luxury do not book this just to get a cheaper deal but if you are looking for good value and an enjoyable holiday get booking now.

In fact the reason I am writing this is that we have just booked to go again this September as nothing else has been as good as this resort or hotel. Also the price has not changed a great deal to what we paid 3 years ago.

stayed in this hotel 8th to 15 june, we were booked in to stay in the tossa center hotel but on arrival were told it was full, we had no option but to go across the road to the beach hotel. we were given a room on the 1st floor right above the bar. the noise from the bar never ceased from morning to night ,we are both over 50 and the constant moving of chairs and loud music spoilt this holiday from day one. the hotel itself was very clean but the food was repetative and mostly lukewarm at best, the pools were very small . asked to move rooms on second day to be told there were none available unless we were prepared to pay for a family room, which would have cost us 100 euros. this it seems was told to everyone who asked for a quiteter room. the town was lovely and we spent a lot of time away from the hotel and ate out a few times, there are a lot of nice restaurants. we won't return to this hotel again

Room Tip: stay away from this hotel if you are 55 plus, have young children or want a quiet break
