We stayed here for one night and the adjoining rooms for our large family were spacious and clean. The beds are super comfy and we had a lovely view over the seafront. The only issues were that the fridge in our room was not working so that all the drinks were warm and also the air conditioning didn't work so... More

Unclean, no wait staff, terrible food and every where we turned in hotel there was woman with a mop...lovely for eating. I very seldom post a... More

A very nice hotel, placed across the street from a beautiful beach. This is one time when my philosophy on hotels failed. I have always believed that an hotel is just some place to bathe and sleep when you visit a city. Well, another adage poked it's scaly head into the equation, "You get what you pay for". Had I...

We arrived Saturday afternoon after three weeks on the road with our dog. We deserved a treat and we were very satisfied with our room and the facilities it offered. The bed was comfortable with a sea view. It is to be noted that dog shared rooms have Amtiko flooring and so is a little skittish for dogs who seem... More

We caught the ferry from Portsmouth to Santander as the first part of our journey through Spain to the Costa Del Sol. So glad we decided to make this a stopover to get back our land-legs. About 15 minutes from the ferry port, but a simply delightful coastal drive, this hotel ticked all the boxes - we had sea views... More

Very nice hotel!! Nice and helpful staff, great location with view of the beach, and the city center of Santander is a nice walk along the beach away (most of the way). Parking next to the hotel was a big plus.

This is a lovely hotel in a stunning location right on the bay. We had a sea view. Although the weather was wet and rainy we could see this is a lovely area. The room was very nice with lovely bed and furnishings. We would definately stay here again.

Very good position in Santander, in front of the ocean and along a pleasant square. The services are sufficiently good. Personnel gentle and nice. The view from the room balance the level of the forniture not at the best. Good the breakfast. In general good for a business rapid visit.
