Don Juan Tossa
Ranked #35 of 43 Hotels in Tossa de Mar
Reviewed 19 June 2017

It was on a private road so our bus could not come it. We had to drag our luggage to the hotel. Opposite the hotel are two super markets where we shopped to our hearts content. The rooms were good. Only problem was the bath plastic curtain which kept sticking to you whilst having your bath. Near by is a lovely beach with a castle like structure which is a museum, lighthouse etc. A night walk around this place is a must.

Visited Don Juan Tossa in beginning of June, 2017.

Cons:
All inclusive is not worth the money - later found out all staying gets breakfast/lunch and dinner buffets. Plus you need to pay a 10€ deposit for a plastic band(?!) which you get back but they throw the band away anyway, so unsure what this is for..

The only extra is the drinks at the main bar (the poolbar was not open at all) for the all inclusive. You only get water in glasses and not in bottles, this is rather the hassle when you run back and forth between the rooftop pool and the main bar... same with beer etc... they should make an exception during days when they haven't opened the pool bar.

Food - cheaper quality than expected, you'd be better to eat at the fine restaurants in the old town. Food was almost always overcooked and been 'heated' for too long making it extremely dry. (It's a buffet sure, but they could've maintained it better)

Room - got a standard room facing the tennis court and rooftop pool (not view from above, rather across)

The door to the room was hard to shut from time to time, there were actual scrapes on the floor as the entire door was kinda tilted.

Bathtub, the tiles were basically falling off and the drain is was also need of some freshing up..

The actual sleeping area had moist damages which was very off-putting.

Rooftop pool - no mattresses on the sun beds (which was also of a cheaper standard and really uncomfortable) so maybe you could lie there for 1-2 hours before you felt like your back was breaking...
The actual pool itself is not heated (can't expect that really but even tho the weather is at 30 celsius plus, the pool is at like 15....) and need of renovation for sure, dirty pool at the bottom and dirt marks on the water outlets... they only seem to cover the edges with fresh paint every year but that's about it..

All in all the hotel has rough edges, but staff is very nice (some had a hard time with English) and cleaning was also very tidy but refill of shampoo you had to ask for... (you get these tiny shampoo paper bags for 1 time use)


Pros

Staff always available and ready to help if issues would arrive and solved a late checkout with ease (for a charge 20€/person)

Location is great, got a nice supermarket close by on the way to the beach (where we ended buying all the snacks as the ones at the hotel were subpar.

Stayed there in September for around a week.Room was clean with balcony,overlooking local bar and restaurant. Bar was opposite the street and busy at evenings but during the night it was quiet and no problems with sleeping. Staff speaks English,Spanish and Russian which was really great.As we had all inclusive I can't fault anything.Food tasty and loads of it,free drinks at the bar and at the pool. Evening entertainment with spanish dances and karaoke.Overall all good

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the street have sun all day long

Visited this bar whilst on our recent break. Ceiling littered with Serano ham. A sharing platter of Serano ham, salami and manchego cheese 30Euro, great find in Tossa old town, worth a visit to enjoy authentic cuisine and atmosphere

We booked a weeks holiday here despite reading about the poor food and grumpy reception staff and we're so glad we did! The hotel is predominantly visited by Spanish (or at least it was the week we stayed), and the food is predominantly Mediterranean style to suit as you would expect. It is, however, excellent!! Breakfast is very varied and the 'show cooking' bar even puts on fried eggs and lovely ham, mushrooms, beans and omelette to cater for the more British taste. There is also an excellent cold meats selection, cereal, croissants etc. Dinner was also excellent; most nights there was pork, chicken, fish, beef, pasta and there were 'themed' nights such as a Catalan night when the food was typical of the local area. The restaurant manager, Javier, is friendly, helpful and didn't mind my attempts at Spanish with my limited ability!! The ladies who clear the tables require a special mention too, as they work tirelessly and as soon as a table is vacated they have it cleaned and ready for more diners. As for the reception staff, they were friendly, helpful and again, accommodated my poor Spanish attempts with good heart, (I didn't realise Catalonia had its own dialect!!). The room we had had three single beds and was a good size, the bathroom fine and well lit. Our shower wasn't working when we arrived, the head was broken, but it was fixed the morning after and a chain put on the sink plug, which we hadn't mentioned as it wasn't a major problem. Someone else mentioned road noise from that side of the hotel and it's true. Not so much bar noise or scooters, but the binnies come at 5am and the road-washing lorry at 6am! After the second night we didn't notice it though. The bar staff were excellent; Julio and Pedro in particular, (the only names I can remember!). The guests, mostly all Spanish, were lovely. We had several 'conversations' in pigeon English and Spanish, it's amazing how you can communicate if you try! There is nightly dancing from 10pm till midnight. It's not disco, it's all Latin but we enjoyed it and it's amazing to see just how many people can salsa, cha-cha and dance their socks off! Just get up, mix with the locals and you'll love it! The terrace pool, being high up, gets the sun all day and has plenty of sunbeds, so no fighting for them. I reckon I've talked enough now, but I'll end by saying we're going back next year! Loved it!

If you are expecting a great local place to disconnect and relax, with few tourists, plus a great location super-close to the beach, as well as a plethora of really good dining and drinking spots, you will be very happy!
If you are expecting a top-notch luxury hotel with amazing wifi, where everybody speaks perfect English and every meal will be a chef's masterpiece, you will be gravely disappointed.
The a/c works perfectly, the water pressure is great, the bathroom facilities are fine with me, and the upper-deck pool and accompanying view certainly warrants at least a couple hours by the strategically-placed pool bar. The receptionists speak good English, and the local bartenders taught me most of the other Catalan words I needed to survive in the wild. Still fine-tuning the pronunciation of 'carajillo' though.
I really enjoyed my stay at Don Juan! Thanks for putting up with us!
(and hey, I teach English as a foreign language to adults, mostly for business purposes - if you guys ever feel so inclined, let me know, maybe we can work something out, it'd be fun!)

Room Tip: Some people might be bothered by noise from the street (namely bar noise, mopeds, and trash trucks)
