Tossa Beach may not have been the largest of hotels but it was clean and the staff friendly. The hotel is down a narrow street so anyone on a bus transfer from the airport will get dropped off at the top of the road a 30 second walk from the hotel. On arrival we were told that there is a tourist tax to pay (luckily I already had some spare Euro’s. It was .99 cents a day so just under 14Euros for the two of us – it would have been nicer if this had been made clearer when booking the holiday so no fault to the hotel for this). You may find that you have a room in the sister hotel which is literally over the road so don’t worry if you get told this (we weren’t). You are also able to use the facilities in either hotel.
Our room was small with a small balcony but clean and newly decorate. The only downside to the room I can think of would be the size of the balcony if you are the type of person/people who like to sit and watch the world go by. It was literally just big enough for the two chairs placed out there. Even if that’s what we wanted/liked we’d have made the most of it.
The restaurant was clean and the food was typical of a basic all inclusive hotel. For the price you pay for this hotel there should be no complaints. Yes the food is a basic (but good) standard and can get repetitive, but if it bothers you that much there are a number of nice and reasonably priced restaurants around the main resort. Snacks were served from the pool bar. We didn’t sample these but they looked fine. Again, basic standard, but they would fill a hole if you got hungry.
The pool area was tiny (but very clean) so in the summer months it would be near on impossible to find somewhere to sit/sunbath. But when we went (end of May) it was fine. Having said that the beach is less than 2 minutes’ walk away so not all bad.
The hotel entertainment was rubbish, but some groups were making the most of it. Most evenings we would finish dinner, go for a walk along the beach front and though the town centre then have a drink in the bar before going up to our room.
Tossa itself was lovely. Clean beach and a lovely old town to explore. This was a lovely location and hotel for a quick and cheap getaway. The hotel was shown as having 4 stars which is a bit of a push (me and my fiancé both think it’s a 3 star in reality), but that aside we’d both be more than happy to go again and have recommended it to friends and family
Also, if you book through flexible trips and get the coach transfer make sure you go to the toilet before setting off (took just over 2 hours and there was no toilet on the coach) and the statue that you are told to look for in the airport is inside the building!
