Good breakfast, great staff, lovely rooms. We were there on our 1yr wedding anniversary and they did a marvelous job with rose petals and cava. They gave us a large room up the top, the balcony was small but the room was larger than the others which we appreciated as we stayed there for 8 nights. Restaurant has a great... More

The hotel is in San Jose not far away from the beach by walk. The rooms are basic but everything is clean. The staff is friendly & helpful. There's room for improvements with the breakfast but this isn't so important when you are in Spain. We didn't test the restaurant which belongs to the hotel because we felt the prices... More

Location: Very close to restaurants and facilities such as supermarket, pharmacy and ATMs, so it's very convenient in the end of the day after returning from the beach not having to drive in order to have dinner. There is a beach quite close, but not so worthy when compared to the other beaches in the area, so you might have... More

Though San Jose was a bit of a disappointment, Santuario was very satisfactory. Close enough to the beach, well one of them. And within walking distance to dining. Unfortunately they were resurfacing their patio right outside our room. The odor was less than pleasing, and because of it, they closed their resturant for the time we were there. I would... More

Golden Buddhas, Persian rugs and Indonesian furniture make up the lobby of Santuario San José, add a smiling and friendly reception staff, clean and basic rooms, comfortable beds and you have a lot more for your cash than a 'hostel'. Included breakfast was typical 'continental style'. Yoghurts and cereal, pain-au-chocolate and croissants, brown and white rolls and bread. The usual... More

Both the day and night staff were exceptionally helpful and kind. The buffet breakfast was always fresh and generous---and coffee was prepared to order. They have highchairs (seems like a small thing, but it's a huge plus as few restaurants in town do)! The rooms are rather standard and the bed coverings are, perhaps, a bit dated...but overall, our experience... More

Pasamos un fin de semana con nuestro hijo de 3 meses. Nos acomodaron muy bien y nuestras 'quejas' fueron superficiales: la habitación nos quedó un pelín chiquita con la cuna que nos pusieron, en la habitación hizo calor por la noche (no abrimos la puerta por falta de una mosquetera en ella). No hay ascensor así que el sitio no... More

Its the staff that make the difference at this spotlessly clean well positioned hostal. Nothing is too much trouble. We booked out of season so the restaurant wasn't open but the simple breakfast offered buffet style was all we needed and eggs were cooked to order. Also the coffee was individually prepared from a machine (not a dreaded glass jug)... More

The friendly hardworking staff did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and we cannot praise them enough. By UK standards this is certainly more than a hostal. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable and well located in a quiet street just a few yards from the centre of San José and we had no problem parking on the street... More

Lovely, clean hotel with excellent staff who are on hand to help at any time. Just a short walk to the beach and yards away from nice bars / restaurants. Breakfast is fresh and plentiful. San Jose itself is a beautiful resort - we went out of season and it looks like it would be much livelier in the summer... More
