From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble . From the management right down to the cleaning ladies , everyone was polite , courteous , friendly and approachable . Even down to trying to teach us the some Catalonian. The hotel is clean and tidy with a great restaurant and terrific menus . The waitering staff were attentive but never invasive , as were the bar staff . We shall return for another fabulous holiday in the the future . Our thanks to the manager and his staff . You have a great team .
The first 4 star hotel I visited in my life with the poorest interiors of the rooms, the room with very funny actually bad smell, the mattress are poor, there was only a sheet without any comforter in every room but a very poor blanket on it, the safe isn’t free and the house keeping aren’t friendly, the every day coffee tea are never restocked, no idea where their 4 stars coming from?
I had pretty high hopes for the Golden Bahia de Tossa based on the reviews. My honest assessment is that it is a pretty average hotel. The front desk staff were not particularly helpful or friendly. They did their job. Nothing more, nothing less. That was a bit disappointing as friendly front desk staff really set the tone for the whole experience I think. The room was good. The cleaning staff did an excellent job of keeping it in great order throughout the visit and were always friendly. The facilities are OK. Clean and orderly. The food in the restaurant is pretty good - not outstanding, but not bad. The servers are pleasant and service is good. The location of the hotel is good. A very short walk into town. Overall, the hotel was fine and it did the job. Personally, I would not stay there again, as I prefer smaller places with more character - this place is more or less entirely characterless (our reservation was switched from Golden Mar Menuda to Golden Bahia de Tossa which is how we ended up here).
Great hotel, great staff, food and facilities. Short walk down to the old town and castle. Went with a shearings trip had great drivers (thank you Tim & Caroline, hope your feeling better). Its a long journey from Devon but you know that and just get on with it, just sit there and its all done for you. Weather was good and the included trip to Barcelona was the highlight (paid for the extra coach tour, well worth the £15). Highly recommended just make sure you realize the journeys quite long but soon forgotten.
Brilliant staff will do anything for you. Food was great everything you could think of, also snacks around bar was great. Free kids was really good an the kids loved it! Also a wide range of drinks and a lovely piano bar to suit. Rooms where nice an clean an cleaned everyday. Would definitely recommend this hotel as this was our first family holiday away and couldnt of asked for a better hotel. One very very small thing is there was no iron or iron board for the rooms had to use a communal iron but other than this 5 out 5 stars 👌👌👌👌👌
We stayed at this lovely hotel for a week & went half board. First impressions were excellent - large, clean and modern facilities. Good sized bedroom and balcony facing a gorgeous pool area - was really impressed. Breakfast & meals were great with a separate vegetarian counter and wine included in half board. Really enjoyed the wine and thought it was a nice touch. Good entertainment and kids club, where children can participate in Tshirt painting etc at night whilst parents sit in the bar area and watch the entertainment- this was a fantastic idea! Friendly staff and cleaners cleaned our room at whatever time suited us. Right next to bus station and 15 min pleasant walk to the beach. I really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. One of the best hotels I have stayed at and a perfect choice for your holiday.
We travelled here with Shearing’s. We have been to Spain & Switzerland & stopped overnight. This was the direct bus & I can honestly say never again, in fact I'll say it again, never again. When you stop you get to sleep, every time I dropped off some stinky old smoker, dotted all over the bus, would cough. Also for the first time on a coach holiday, the drivers were very poor. Now as for the hotel. Different story. It is beautiful, lovely grounds & very decent rooms. The hotel was very clean all over. The food was excellent & the drinks on the A/I package were really very good, most branded drinks were available but you have to ask to be sure. The entertainment was very good with the exception of Lennon, McCartney which was below the bottom end of the scale. Not even decent enough for a karaoke. On the contrary the Michael Jackson show was the best I’ve seen. The location is a pleasant 15 minute stroll to the beach. Close enough to walk & far enough to avoid any noise. The staff in the hotel were very friendly. The Tapas a la carte restaurant, free to use once in a stay, may not be to everyone’s taste but I loved it. If things like octopus, squid & mussels are off putting to you, give it a miss. Hundreds of sun loungers. The piano bar serves Heineken, very nice too, however the music was a bit jazzy for my taste. Read this and you think why 4 star and not 5? Here is the answer. Vast amount of room outside and yet there is not a no smoking area. Inevitably we would set up far away from others & within 5 minutes someone would set up nearby & stinking the place out. We spent a fair bit of time indoors even when the weather was glorious just to avoid this. It's 2017 Mr. General manager, move with the times. Could not believe this, we had to pay 20 euros plus 10 deposit to use the safe. I've been going on holiday for 40 years and I'm struggling to remember paying to use a safe, deposit yes. Then not a small amount 20 Euros, come on Golden Bahia, this is extortion. We reported on the first morning our A/C was not cooling. I got the feeling this did not come as a surprise to the reception staff. It was not repaired & no alternative room was offered, this to me was a let down from what was generally a really good, well run hotel. Oh by the way. Our kids are grown up but if taking children the kids pool area is so nice.
Had such a good time this September. Everything about the Golden Bahia is great. The town of Tossa de Mar is magical,like stepping back in time. Can't wait until nexts years break at the Golden Bahia.
I have just recently returned from the 17th Oct to 20th Oct I cannot fault this hotel in any way .The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice same as lunch and evening meal .You drink wine by the craft or bottles of beer .Good dress code . Plenty of sunbeds lots of bars around different pool areas .The spa is spotless as is the hotel .Reception very helpful the rooms are spotless can't fault it at all . Hint I would try and fly into girona next time as it's much closer than Barcelona. Hope this is helpful
Just returned from my ninth consecutive visit in October to the golden bahia . As always the staff and management team were so helpful and friendly . Nothing is too much trouble , they go over and above every time . The food was excellent with enough choice for even the fussiest of eaters . The rooms are all decorated the same and spotless clean and comfy . This year the hotel has undergone a bit of a refurb too . The toiletries were in lovely bottles and very nice quality . The pool area has had a complete new set of sun beds and parasols which looked lovely . The golden bahia is a great hotel which does deserve its 4 * rating and its family friendly too . There's a great paddling pool for the kids which has a galleon ship with slides and chutes . Two others outdoor pools as well as an indoor pool and a great rooftop sun terrace with jacuzzi pools . The animation team did a great job and the shows were good . All round another lovely holiday and I can't recommend this hotel enough . Will be returning again same time next year .
