This Hostal deserves the great reviews it has had. Everything was as others have already written. The friendliness, the comfort and the cleanliness. There were a couple of silly down points though. In my room there was no spare electrical sockets from which to charge my phone. God forbid I should also want to charge a digital camera! I unplugged... More

We visited the Jardin Secreto in Santander from 16th-23rd October 2014. We chose this accommodation because of the positive reviews. We could not have made a better choice. We arrived about 11am and had confirmed early access to our room. We were met by Ene the owners daughter. Ene pleasantly greeted us and showed us to our room (3) it... More

We visited Jardin Secreto in August with our young daughter. Having stayed in a different part of Santander the previous year (in a rather expensive...but lovely hotel), we were not sure what to expect. The owners were incredibly friendly, especially toward our little girl. We were made to feel most welcome. The hotel itself is much bigger than the outside... More

This is one of the nicest, friendliest places I've ever stayed. Great location in the middle of town, but feels very quiet and relaxed. The rooms are very nice and everything is very clean. I will definitely return.

Jardin Secreto is just a wonderful hotel. The location is near the city centre, the house and the garden is nice and the rooms are clean and cozy. There are some large hotels in Santander, but none of them is personal and charming as Jardin Secreto.

This is the find you hope for on TA. We enjoyed a fine welcome from the two who run this accomodation and received very helpful briefing with annotated maps on favourite places to eat - we seemed to have been on an eat/walk/eat holiday traveling through Bordeaux/Biarritz/SanSebastian and finally to Santander. Very helpful in printing out boarding cards for the... More

Only had stopover at Jardin Secreto after ferry crossing, but so pleased to have found it. Ene was extremely welcoming (even though we didn't arrive until 10.20pm!) and enjoyed comfortable bed and hot shower. Also enjoyed recommendation of Quebec bar (excellent tortilla and rioja) nearby. Will be certain to stay again when next in area.

Had a lovely stay here for a week in March. Very comfortable, beautifully decorated and peaceful. Ideally situated in the centre of Santander within walking distance of bars, shops and restaurants. The owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Used the gym next door for swimming and fitness classes. The little fridge in the room was a useful touch, steaming hot... More

We had a perfect stay here in September. Good location and lovely rooms. It was nice to have a coffee and muffin in the garden in the morning. The owners were very friendly and offered plenty of advice on things to do and places to eat. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and we will stay here next... More

Stayed here in Aug/Sep 13. It was very clean and the owner was very pleasant. There was a really personal touch to staying here as it was family run and there were only a few rooms. The lady was very helpful and answered any questions we had. She even rang a company for me because they couldn't speak English! The... More
