Tossa Beach Hotel
Ranked #32 of 43 Hotels in Tossa de Mar
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Went to tossa de mar last week of July. got 2 kids- 3yrs and 2 yrs.
reception staff and manager very friendly and accommodating.
Had 2 double beds in our room. room very clean and well presented.
food ok. always found something we liked. kids ate chips rice pasta etc.
Small pool which only got sun in afternoon but didn't bother us as we went to the beach in the morning then sat by the pool in the afternoon.
The beach was like walking on gravel. had very sore feet. not ideal for young kids wanting to make sand castles. the beach on the left of the shore line near grand Reymar hotel was far better.
The entertainment was poor but the kids entertainment and kids clubs were great. the girls Regina and Ada were fantastic with the kids. there was a mini disco at night which my kids loved.
Would definitely go back again but disappointed about the beach.

We went to Tossa de Mar and stayed at Tossa beach 28th to 31st July 2012, had read reviews before we went and they are all mostly right, 3 - 5 mins walk from the beach, which is good as the pool is far to small for the hotel with no sun at all, strange, stayed all inclusive breakfast was ok, lunch was bland and tea was lunch left overs served slightly different, however this didn’t bother us as I said we had read the reviews, B+B would have been better, as for the drinks, not good really, The hotel was clean we spent very little time there just change and sleep, most of our time was spent sunbathing on the stony packed beaches or wandering through the beautiful cobbled streets up to the castle, in all of the little tavernas sipping sangria and cocktails,
we are a party of 3 ladies sharing a room, room was clean and comfortable we hired a safe 10e refundable deposit plus 4e per day, we had a fridge in the room but it was padlocked and you have to pay to hire it, we didn’t bother, we only had 2 chairs on the balcony which over looked the small pool, I asked the manager for a third chair on our first day, we didn’t get one, check out day you have to vacate your room by 10am, we weren’t getting picked up until 3pm so asked if they had a room we could freshen up in, they said the hotel does not have this facility, we asked if we could keep our room on until 2pm they wanted to charge us 70e saying we would have to pay for all inclusive, we already had paid for this but they wanted to charge us again, we ended up spending our day on the beach coming back to pick our luggage up from the hotel and freshened up in the loos across the road in the Tossa Centre hotel, not great service
There was a daisy kids club and a very small children’s area and evening entertainment, we didn’t bother with any of this we spent our time meandering through the village and visiting Spanish tapas bars

Room Tip: The place itself is beautiful, all the hotels appear to be much the same so I would say the Tossa Be...

Good value, very very clean... cleaners seem to be on the go all the time, food not bad- could always find something i liked. We found it was worth going all inclusive just for the drinks, theres a very nice steak place called tom & jessica's just round the corner & some nice spanish bars. The few things i would moan are 1. The entertainment at night.. rubbish ! & 2. The pool area in the day - get about an hours worth of sun, def worth a little walk to the lovely beach & 3. The noise at night is bad .. sounds like someone is running round the corridors scraping furniture luckily i had some ear plugs. But all in all was good value for money and a nice little break... Tossa itself is Beautiful.

We've just got home from Tossa de Mar and had a lovely holiday. The hotel was the cleanest hotel i've ever been to, the staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were modern and had everything you'd need, cleaned daily with fresh towels. The food was ok, lots of salads, chicken, fish, pasta & sauce, lots of chips, my children didn't love the food but we always found something to eat. The snack bar was my children's favourite - they served toasties, hot dogs, burgers and chips when the restaurant was not open. The pools in both hotels were sometimes shady - the sun was on the main pool from about 11am, earlier in the smaller pool and we always managed to get a sunbed. The beach is just down the road so when the pool was busy we went to the beach which was lovely, swimming in the sea was great. The entertainment was a bit rubbish, a man on an organ singing old songs was especially bad, the parrot show was funny as the parrots didn't want to to the tricks! We spent a lot of time playing pool, table tennis, chess and watching the olympics on tv and drinking in the bar.
Tossa de Mar is a lovely resort, very relaxed and beautiful, don't listen to the bad reviews.

I know I have put a lot of excellents in my ratings but that is not the full story...

I found some of the reception staff rude and not very helpful. My son is 6 and we had a room above the managers office, he complained about the noise of my son running around.

There are no printing facilities to print out boarding passes etc and the reception in both hotels wouldn't let us use theirs so we had to go to an internet cafe. You have to pay for WiFi and it is only enabled on one device, I didn't mind that too much as it was great to get away from it, but kids wanted it.

The food is very bland and by the 4th day you'll want to eat out... not much choice for kids but chips and chips and forget about the drink selection...

Entertainment is very poor... no dreadful. A guy playing keyboard poorly and singing worse at a ridiculously high volume...

The pool area is small and sheltered so the water does not get warm,. there is no swimming after 19:30 for some strange reason. The snack bar is beside the pool but you are not allowed in wet and god help you if you are caught...

On the plus side, there are some staff who are very friendly and try to help. The rooms are clean and the hotel is close to the beach...

And a big plus is Tossa de Mar itself... a lovely wee resort with lots to do and very relaxing. Great snorkeling and boat trips, would go back but to a different hotel... But then again, maybe it is better the devil you know!!!

Fantastic value, very clean. Meals a bit strange at times, but whats new with all inclusive. Very basic food, but not bad, about what you would expect. House wine good, coffee not bad. Plenty of good restaurants near by for when it all gets too much (some of the guests can be a bit, um, loud, leery, annoying etc. Fantastic location, but no sea views. Tiny pool but beach on the doorstep, and who wants to stay in with the hard core all-inclusivers anyway. Very thin walls, so if you have even a moderately noisy neighbour you get to know them and their habits intimately, so take your earplugs. All in all, well worth it for a cheap break in a nice location.
