A reasonable hotel in a fair position, handy for the beach with quite a few bars and eateries about. We were lucky enough to get a room with a sea view, the breakfasts have a good selection to choose from, and serve till 11am at weekends if you like a lie in.our only criticize with this hotel, is the walls...

Felt like we entered a time warp and went back to 1970s. Booked 5 nights stayed three - couldn't wait to get out. Cost us 2 nights accommodation but the upgrade was worth every penny! Had we stayed longer it would have put a total damper on our stay in Santander, which is a lovely city. Poor customer service, and... More

Stayed for an International Conference. Desk staff are efficient as I personally watched at least 3 VERY large groups being processed during our 5-day stay. Still do not have a clue where ALL those people stayed, as there was over 200 in our group alone. Hotel does provide free Wifi Internet and private car parking (although we did not have... More

For our purposes, its ideally located and almost all facilities that we would like (no swimming pool!) and was well served by the staff. We were there the last week in September for a classic motorbike event, with everyone in one place - with several meals laid on by the hotel which were generally good quality. We also had breakfast... More

This is a comfortable hotel in a good location. We visited on a mini-break through Brittany Ferries, and emailed the hotel before hand to ask for a high floor room, and was allocated a room on the 6th floor. I think that rooms on the lower floors may have traffic noise. The room was a little bit dated, but very... More

Reception offered us a room upgrade for an extra EUR 10 upon checked in which we did took up. Apart from the sizeable room and amazing views of the sea, there was nothing much to comment on the interior. The room has obviously seen better days. It was old and tired but clean. Fairly large bed equipped with TV and... More

The staff here was very friendly and they checked us in quickly. Our room was large. The bed was comfortable with all non-feather pillows (thank you!). Unfortunately, there was only one power outlet at the nightstand, so only one person could charge their phone at bedside. The bathroom had a shower/tub combo. The tile grout and the ceiling had mold,... More

The hotel is near the beach, a place great for a relaxing walk, people watching, wind surfing or sitting and reading a book. Come during the slow and shoulder season and you should be able to get a good discounted rate. Hotel itself is a little outdated, but adequate. Nice, clean and cordial staff. Breakfast is decent enough, depending on... More

I travel a lot and maybe my report is biased for what I usually consider a business hotel. This hotel, and I suspect the many others in the surroundings, is more biased to the mid- to high-profile tourists coming for the Santander summer. This can be seen in the architecture of the hotels surrounding El Sardinero beach. Now to the... More
