“just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

On booking the hotel we requested to stay in Tossa center with a balcony when we arrived we were booked into Tossa beach with no balcony when we challenged them they were not interested and were told that they were fully booked. The hotel was very clean and room we had was a good size. The food was good with a reasonable selection. The bar staff were not very good at all they were all miserable and they had a poor attitude , you could expect this from the odd one or two but they were all like this , they seem to be on their guard for any one ordering a drink more than they should or heaven forbid push two tables together. the pool area is too small . the hotel is in a good position for the beach and restaurants / bars. the beach is not great its more like grit than sand and its a nightmare to get in or out the of the sea.

Room Tip: don't expect what you request !!

Went there with a group of 30+ yr old women for a weekend. We had a late flight and arranged our own transfer from the airport, this was great and the journey took about 40 minutes. Another guest said their coach transfer took 4 hours!
We got to the hotel about midnight and were quickly booked in, the whole hotel was quiet and nothing was open. No where to even get a drink and we were told to be quiet as it is a family hotel.
Very pleased with the rooms, appeared to be recently refurbished with a large balcony and spotless. Went down to breakfast in the morning, ladies note you are not allowed to take beach type bags in the restaurant - you are literally pounced on and they make you leave them unattended near the door! It's the same with every meal, and I found it to be annoying.
The pool area is tiny and doesn't get the sun all day but it's literally a few minutes walk to the beach so we spent the days there.
Everything closes at 11.30, they kick you out of the bar and you can't take drinks from there even if you have them on your tables! Also you are not allowed to move the tables, you can move the chairs so lots of you can sit around a table for four- lots of petty rules that were not really called for as no- one was doing anything to make them have to clamp down.
The all inclusive food is not brilliant - very repetitive so glad we were only there three nights. The cocktails are good though, ask for the "green one" .
So wouldn't return to this hotel myself but liked Tossa de Mar.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor rooms as everyone has to walk passed to get to the pool, bar and restaurant a...

This was our second stay at the Tossa Beach hotel.The first time we stayed our room was lovely and was situated to the right hand side of the reception area.The room was clean and modern and had a slight view of the castle.I did request the second time we stayed to have a similar positioned room but we were given a first floor room to the left of reception which although was really nice room it was very noisy being situated over the entertainment area below.This didn't bother us too much as we were out of our room most of the day and evening,but for anyone with young children this room would have been a nightmare.The hotel is very clean and the staff are very polite and curtious.The food at the hotel is good especially the breakfast.The hotel is in a good position just a five minute walk to the beach.Tossa is a lovely Spanish resort night life is good but if you want all night clubs and stag and hens all over go to LLoret.lovely restaurants and friendly bars we love it here and will certainly return and stay at the tossa beach again.

Room Tip: if you stay at the tossa beach request a room on second or third floor at the right hand side of rec...

THIS RESORT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNGSTERS OR GROUPS WHO WANT TO HAVE FUN. I have just spent four days in this Hotel and arrived back in UK today. We were 3 couples over the age of 40 and 50. Although this Hotel were very clean, as in fresh towels and a wipe over each day - although the bed linen was not changed in the four days we stayed , THE STAFF WERE ABSOLUTELY AWFUL....RUDE , OBNOXIOUS , UNCARING, IMPOLITE , AND INTERROGATING !!!! We arrived two hours later at 11.10 pm than we should have (delayed transfer). The hotel staff refused to provide us with a sandwich or a drink at reception and said they weren't sure what time we would have arrived and they had nothing prepared, but to go to their sister hotel opposite where the bar was still open to have a drink. Being in a group we pushed two small tables together so we could sit close, when a waiter came over and asked us to put them back where they were. We were then told not to over order as they did not want wastage on drinks. The next day we were told by the Hotel Manager that they checked their CCTV and we left 10 minutes after closing time which was 11.30 pm. We could not believe it !!! He showed no interest or sympathy when we told him we had arrived late the previous evening. The four days we stayed , our group felt scrutinized, patronized and victimized. Even the snack bar staff were very obnoxious and gave us dirty looks if we asked for more than one hotdog !!!! On leaving they asked us to wait outside the Hotel with our suitcases and not in reception from fear of us being too loud in conversation, so not to disturb other guests. So at 4am we waited for an hour in a deserted cold street for our transfer (late again). The young bar staff are terrified of chatting with customers, or having an empty glass on a table and the rest of the staff - apart from Pierre who was friendly to us - acted the same. Felt like a scene from Stepford Wives - robotic, unsmiling and obnoxious.

Stayed here in June on a short 3 day break with my boyfriend.. This is the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in, they work so hard and it shows. All the staff are really nice and polite, bar staff, reception and restaurant staff! The food here is brilliant always plenty of choice and always being topped up with fresh, plenty of fruit to choose from to! There's also snacks served all day by the bar, burgers, hot dogs, toasties and chips. I seen someone said before there's no signs saying what food it is but above all dishes there were photos of a chicken, pig etc. We stayed in a room above the bar area which was lovely and spacious and very modern and clean! You could hear the music quite loud in the night but this didn't bother us and it finishes at 11:30 anyway! Only about 200m from the beach, supermarket around the corner Aswell as plenty of bars and places to eat, very central! You can also use the hotel across the road which is part of the same group but we didn't bother! The only thing that id say let's the hotel down is the pool area as it doesn't have any sun there until about 1pm but once it's there it's there all afternoon! Not a problem really as the beach is so close but it's the only flaw if you like the sun! The jacuzzi is lovely to! We'd definitely go back here again we had a fab stay!

We hadn't reviewed the hotel before booking,and reading some wondered what we had let ourselves in for. I don't know what some people expect. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find a modern, exceptionally clean, and very welcoming hotel. Arriving at ten fourty five at night we were offered toasties while we had a drink, before retiring to our very clean and spacious air conditioned room. In the morning we went to breakfast to find to find an exceptional choice of well cooked and well presented food on offer. We were so impressed with the staff on how clean it was all kept, even the restaurant manager did his bit. This carried on at every mealtime, I'm quite a fussy eater, but had no problem at all finding something that satisfied me.Although the pool area is quite small , and you have to chase the sun a bit ,it's fine. They have their rules, bar closes at eleven thirty, but if you want more, go out . All in all ,we have been to a lot of ALL IN hotel's and we think this is one of the best, we will definitely go back.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room (8) you had a bit of sewer smell

We stayed here in April with 2 friends. All good reports. Hotel was spotless, continually cleaning throughout the day. There was plenty of choice (food wise)and the bar staff were not exactly short in their measures. All staff were friendly and polite, especially the bar staff, even when we left to go to another bar,they took us straight to it (we didn't have a clue where it was). Looking to go back again.
