Expert review of Hotel Cap D'Or
This small, friendly hotel has got one of the best locations in Tossa, at the far end of the main beach promenade. All the rooms have fabulous sea views but what I really like is that they’ve also got character - the building was originally an anchovy factory and the rooms were the owner family’s living quarters.
(By the way, the hotel actually looks a lot nicer than my photos show. The hotel is closed at the moment until March but bear with me and by the spring, I should have some that give you a much better idea - thanks.)
At the base of the hill just beneath the walls of the medieval old town. The beach, the old town with its ruined castle, and the main centre of Tossa with its restaurants, bars and shops, are all on your doorstep.
The 11 rooms are all simply but tastefully decorated and all have sea views looking out to the beach and castle ruins. Only one room (Room 107) has a balcony.
All have double-glazing and air-conditioning, so there’s no need to keep the windows open. Two rooms also have the option to interconnect, so can be booked as a family room.
None apart from the small, cosy reception area which is tastefully arranged with antiques and flower arrangements and the restaurant. If you're here in the summer, you're most likely to be eating on the terrace outside but should you choose to eat indoors, the restaurant has a lovely, sea-inn type feel about it with a high, wooden beamed ceiling, nautical themed objets and pink and white callico seat coverings.
An extensive breakfast buffet is served on the terrace restaurant outside. The terrace restaurant is also one of the best places in Tossa for lunch as it's at the quieter end of the promenade but you still get great sea views and can people watch to your heart's content. There's also an excellent choice of well-cooked fresh fish and meat dishes as well as sandwiches and ice-creams.
Helpful. It's a family business run by a mother and two daughters.
Mostly couples with a high proportion of French, Spanish and Americans.
