This is a very busy hotel with lots of families. The rooms are of a good standard and comfortable. The restaurant is very busy at breakfast and diner, so watch out for low flying kids and ladies with sharp elbows! The food however is really good, lots of variety, enough local speciality dishes and it was always fresh and well presented. The restaurant staff despite the hectic pace of customer turnover were always cheerfull and helpfull. My favourite was Laura from Buenos Aires who kept her cheerful smile going throughout breakfast, diner and then to the nights bar service, brilliant.
The pool area got vey busy but the hotel effectively stopped the sun bed snaggers from claiming beds at sunrise they did not occupy till noon, good for them.
The evening entertainment was fun even if you could not see the stage from more than half the room! this could be an advantage. One small criticism, the best bar in the hotel, the adults only cocktail bar only opened at 9.30pm? what about pre diner cocktails?
We booked with Tui (Thompsons) for brits who classed it as a Platinum, affordable luxury hotel? Its a good family hotel with all the jostle that implies and its worth the 4 stars, just. This is no hotel for the jet set but if you do not mind bustle and lots of kids and want a good cheap and cheerful hotel, its fine.

Stayed at this hotel for 11 nights with Thompsons. This is quite a large hotel with around 380 rooms on 5 floors, our room was on the 5th floor with a lovley pool view.
Our room was very spacious had a double and a single bed with a balcony with drying facilities.Tea and coffee restocked daily as was the bathroom bath gel etc. Our room and the rest of the hotel was exceptionally clean.
The dining room was busy at peak times, always shown to a table, plenty of food choice whatever time you ate, the cheese selection was the best we have had in a hotel. All staff very pleasant and helpful, by the way Thompsons rep Wendy is no longer working at this hotel.
Pool areas plenty of room for children and an adults pool on a higher level. Lots of sunbeds and brollies and thankfully whilst we were there no bed reservations with towels allowed.The only downside to the rooms was the lack of a fridge although there is an ice machine on each corridor.
Tossa itself is a lovley small resort with plenty of cafes and restaurants, we felt very safe. The castle area in particular is well worth visiting.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel. The hotel was great, it was lovely and clean and all the staff were friendly. The pool area and grounds were really spacious, plenty of room for everyone and no need to scramble for a sun lounger. The restaurant was brilliant, lots of choice and a great variety of food....even Cava for breakfast. FANTASTIC HOTEL!!!! Tossa itself is beautiful, we really loved it, the narrow lanes around the castle are just tremendous and the views from the castle are beautiful. A lovely resort and we will defintely be back to Tossa and the Golden Bahia.

Next hotel during our honeymoon it was the Golden Bahia de Tossa. A typical large vacation hotel. Lots of food, lots of people, big swimming pool. We chose this place, because other hotels we visited were of a different nature.
Through opinions from TripAdvisor we knew what to expect.
All we can confirm. Food is good and it;s plenty of choice. Rooms are clean and the staff is nice. One small thing in the minus - we have done our reservation over half a year earlier as we were arranging our honeymoon. We asked for a room with nice view and nothing more. We got a room overlooking the street and we were a little sad, but ok. We are young and maybe that's why reception ignored our request.

We stayed at the Bahia 2nd to 16th July 2011. The food was excellent and a wide choice to cater for everyone, I think the food was even better than last time we went in 2009.
The pools and surrounding areas are lovely and the cold pools are a welcome break from the heat. The rooms are very nice and we had booked a superior room for our stay (room 262) had a great view with a jacuzzi on the balcony.
Tossa itself is beautiful,charming and very spanish. The old town with its castle is amazing and will never get tired of the wonderful shops,restaurants and scenery.
We went on a Thomsons trip - The Barcelona City Tour which was brilliant and paid alittle extra to go inside the Sagrada Familia - well worth it. The tour takes you round the city on the coach so you get to see a lot of Barcelona,you also go to Gaudi Park,up montjuic with panoramic views over the city and harbour - amazing.Time outside the Sagrada Familia and free time to wonder round the Rambles and other places.
The staff at the Bahia are lovely and are always happy to help you. Thanks to Anka and Florin for remembering us from last time and to Julian in the Sports bar for making our coffees every night.
Would we go back ? DEFINITELY.
the majority of reviews are spot on - go,you will enjoy it and wont want to come home lol.

Room Tip: A pool view is very nice.

We staed at the hotel in July 2011. The hotel is cloce to bus station from where you can go to Girona, Lloret or Barcelona. Thereare lots of supermarkets in Tossa, small and big. We bought hamon almost every day. It took us about 15-20 min to go to the beach. You can rent sun beds and sun umbrella, 5 euro each.

We visited Golden Bahia July 2011. Stayed in room 374-brilliant view of pool and surrounding areas. I emailed beforehand to request a pool view room and was happy to see this had been taken into account-def worth doing. Rooms basic but clean-no fridge!
As a 21 and 22 yr old the atmosphere wasnt ideal-lots based around children and families. We went for a guaranteed sun holiday on a budget and thats what the holiday served so cannot fault. I also cannot comment on the excursions or bus/boat trips as the furthest we went was for a walk to the town!! Plenty of restaurants and bars-as well as souvenir shops! Food at the hotel you CANNOT fault, you would have to be extra fussy to find nothing that suits! No same meal was served twice and the choice was endless.
Sunbeds you do not need to reserve-although the parasols are snapped up quickly!! We didnt sunbathe on the beach as it was stony sand-so i would stick to the pool!Im not sure what extras we were to expect from it being a Thompson Platinum hotel?
Overall we had fabulous weather and good value for money. I never normally write reviews but i wanted people to be able to hear from a young couple as many of the reviews are from families with young children. If that is you then i would highly recommend the trip, and for any couples wanting to chill with no expectations. Would I visit again?
Probably not as i think there are far too many other places to see!!!

Room Tip: Email in advance for a pool view room-they do take notice and there is no noise!
