While the hotel itself enjoys such seclusion in an almost romantic nook of Tossa, within its rooms there is no sense of seclusion at all. The walls seem to have been made of some anti-sound-insulation material, maybe for the visitors to feel one big family, everyone being able to hear what all the others in the neighbouring rooms are doing. But seriously, I wonder why the owners don’t at least offer ear-plugs for their guests, could be at least some comfort.
Neptuno’s location is perhaps the best in Tossa – unless you enjoy being in the centre of a crowd since morning till late at night – like in the front line hotels. It’s only 7 minutes walk from the beach but is tucked away in one of the cosiest nooks of the town, close enough to the bus station (5 minutes) and the picturesque walk through pine trees around Tossa on its western side (including some “miradores” and the Moor Tower), and most importantly – it’s 3 minutes walk from the main (except for the sea, of course) attraction of Tossa – its old town and the light-house, quite a fantastic place, especially by night. Its premises are also quite nice and offer you half an hour of a pleasant stroll up and down.
The personnel, including the people in the Neptuno restaurant is efficient, friendly and helpful.
Its restaurant offers gorgeous buffet breakfasts with such a variety of dishes (up to the last day of the season – we happened to be leaving on 12 October the hotel closing on that very day) that it makes it a bit dangerous for people preoccupied with their waist/weight condition, for it’s really difficult to deny oneself trying this and that piece or dish so that in the end you can hardly move away from your table.
Dinner was equally gorgeous and varied, though the wine list was surprisingly short with almost only Torres wines on it (good, but invariably occurring in any restaurant in Catalunia) – could be because it was the very end of the season. But still – being on Bed and Breakfast terms there – it was worthwhile trying some of the practically innumerable restaurants around – the Trip Advisor gives quite a good account of those, unfortunately its No.1 – La Lluna (inside the Old Town) – was closed till next season on 2 October already, still food in all the others we’ve been to was really good.
The rooms and other facilities in the hotels were more than adequate and quite nice, with the only exception – mentioned in most of the reviews – the walls.
