We booked a 2 week package with Jet 2 flying to Girona. Coach transfer was swift compared to how long it would have taken from Barcelona! Good Jet 2 service. Coach stopped at the side of the apartments and we found reception easily. Reception was efficient but not particularly friendly and we were not able to change our room, even...

There were definitely more positives at this accommodation than negatives in our opinion. We liked the situation of the Esmeraldas as it is just out of the centre yet only a 5/10 minute stroll to the main area. Our room on the top floor was quitely situated. Basic but with a lovely modern bathroom. A few niggles about the room...

My wife and I paid a lot for this holiday and the last thing we expected was the poor state of the room we stayed in. The units were from a bygone age, probably there from when they first built the place. The fridge again, was an old item. The fan extractor over the hob/hotplates was extremely noisy. When the...

Don't get me wrong this was a budget holiday, booked 2 weeks before departure at the lowest price I had seen on Thomson's. I went with an open mind and to be honest I was pleasantly surprised.

We have just returned from this hotel having stayed a week. The location is in a quite part of Tossa away from main roads. It is around 10 minutes, maybe less to the sea front. It is not a difficult walk. The hotel is basic as others have said but all we needed was there. The maids came all but...

The hotel is situated quite close to the beach. Standard very average, but the price affordable. Eating at the restaurant was not too good. The rooms clean, the bathrooms have been recently renovated, generally a good base for making trips.
