Close to the beach and other points of interests... The Hotel Santemar is conveniently located near several of Santander’s famous beaches and attractions. Though the hotel looks and feels dated (80s), it was comfortable and clean enough for my requirements. Quick Summary: Rooms – I stayed in a Double Room which I found to be quite spacious and clean.

Just minutes from the beach, Santemar hotel was perfect for our trip. Although we turned up 3 hours earlier than expected, they let us straight into our room which was a huge relief! The staff are all extremely friendly and didn't mind the very little Spanish we could speak as most of the staff spoke English! We had a twin... More

Stayed here on a bus trip through Spain. This was a decent hotel and it is close to the beach. It's fairly modern, too. We had dinner at the hotel with the group. There was one waitress that was extremely rude to the guests. If you stay here, it is important to catch up on your Spanish. As we began... More

This hotel is quite close to the centre of town. Staff are friendly enough are prices are very reasonable. Haas free wifi although slightly intermittent. Room was spacious, the air conditioning was strong enough so I felt a bit hot in the room. Breakfast was ok, it had variety but not so much on the hot food. Room service wasn't... More

We chose this hotel as part of a Brittany Ferries mini break, it looked good and was the cheapest. What a pleasant surprise to find a luxury hotel, close to the beach and many local amenities. Our twin room was very clean, spacious and comfortable with a good view of the sea. There were regular buses just down from the... More

This was such a cheap price considering Im a student. I went with my mother and stayed for 4 days. We loved it sooooo much. The staff were so polite and helpful, hotel was crazy clean, beautiful food (except churros) and the location was ideal. 5 minute walk to the beach and 10 minute bus to centre. Everything is sooo...

The hotel is quite near to.Santillana de Mar.It's possible to book a cab to/fro there. A convenient base to explore Santillana de mar if you have the time. Just a short ride by taxi to the bus station.

We stayed here for one night whilst awaiting our ferry back to the uk. Having stayed here on a previous occasion we knew it was a reasonably priced hotel. It is a large hotel, fairly modern with generously sized rooms. Our car was pretty well loaded so it was important to us to have a hotel with private parking. This... More
