Location was perfect. You were able to walk to the beach. In the evening, we were at the casino area which was also nice. You did need to show your passport or license to get into the casino. Lovely area to visit

Even though we were there in the summer season this hotel had the most impersonal and desolate atmosphere of any hotel in Spain we had ever stayed in. It had the veneer of a neglected failing business Far worse than the hotel's tawdry appearance ( four star is a joke!) was the unsympathetic, disorganised, inefficient behaviour of all the staff...

Visited Santander early July for work purposes. I arrived late evening and was greeted by polite and welcoming staff who spoke excellent English. I recommend the restaurant in the hotel if you are arriving late and too tired to venture into the town centre. For a reasonable price of 22 euros, you get a three course dinner and wine thrown...

Great hotel to stay in if arriving on the early evening Ferry from Portsmouth. Chargeable underground parking but rooms large and comfortable with fridge and air conditioning. Porter took all our motorcycle gear up to our rooms. Had breakfast in the little bar for less than 5 euro each. Staff on reception spoke good English.

We arrived off of the ferry some two hours before check-in, but were keen to get the car parked up. Reception staff were very friendly and had a room available for us. That allowed us to spend a pleasant afternoon and evening walking around Santander. We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant which gave a reasonable priced three course... More

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. The... More

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
