I don't want to repeat everything that has already been said, however I would like to add the following comments. I stayed with my husband from 18th - 29th Sept. 2012, we booked with Thomson and in the past have always had excellent holidays with them in other places.
We found the reception staff pleasant and the rooms comfortable, quiet and very clean, although a bit dated. The pool area is good but the sun beds are uncomfortable and need renewing.
Breakfast in the dining room was a pleasant experience and we always found a table easily and we enjoyed the food. However, dinner was a real free for all, totally chaotic and overcrowded not helped by the fact that there was a conference being held in the hotel on the second week and the delegates seemed to take up a big section of the dining room. Also, I personally struggled to find anything I wanted to eat, apart from the soup and certain bits of salad and I'm not particularly fussy.
The entertainment was ok, but the show room wasn't designed to make viewing easy.
We went on two excursions, one to Barcelona (the day and night trip) and to Girona. Both excursions were excellent and led by Frank who is a Spaniard who was brought up in Australia. He is very knowledgeable and entertaining and a great asset to Thomsons. Simon the rep is fine and did a good job.
Tossa de Mar is a lovely little place with an old walled town. and there are plenty of streets to stroll round and some quite strenuous walks up to the Miradores etc. There are good shops, bars and restaurants and boat trips to different places along the coast.
All in all I enjoyed visiting Tossa de Mar but wouldn't want to stay at this hotel again. I am also a bit baffled by all the good reviews I read before I booked. Maybe we just picked the wrong time..
