Fabulous staff in a great beach side location! This gem of a hotel is a selected Brittany Ferry nomination and far exceeds it's 3 star rating.Most travellers continue south off the ferry but if you want a fabulous promenade, clean beaches and people watching with fabulous local food then this hotel is for you. nt

I stayed here in 2011 and returned in 2014 and still found it to be a good hotel with helpful staff and good service. The room was clean and well kept with a good sized and clean bathroom. The hotel is in a very nice location on the very edge of the city and right on a large beach. It... More

Adjacent to the beach and away from the hustle and bustle of Santander city. Recommend a room with air-con June onwards - request in advance. Excellent well-laid out rooms and public areas. Good restaurant with great choice.

We opted for a room with a balcony and had a lovely view over the beach, the room was very modern with all that you would need for a short stay. You could have breakfast in the hotel... More

We stayed here for two nights on a Brittany Ferries deal. It was an excellent choice both for location, right on the beach and only a bus ride into Santander and the facilities. We ate in both the main restaurant, taster meal, so delicious and the cafe where again the food was really good. Breakfast offered an extensive choice and... More

We have stayed twice at the Chiqui recently and been entirely satisfied each time. The hotel is out of the main town area overlooking a lovely stretch of beach, though not isolated. The rooms had a veranda which overlooked the beach and view to the town. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and fitted out to a high standard.... More

We stayed here in a twin room for one night. The view was amazing, the room very comfortable. It was quite small but very acceptable for the price. The location is great and we enjoyed walking along the promenade,

A lot of plus points - lovely building, on sea front, decent value, excellent staff, provided good cot for out baby to sleep in. but we didn't sleep well due to the chiming of an external clock on the building which went off and was heard loudly in our room every 10seconds & constant 'buzzing' noise of the fuse box...

Oh Gosh! A trip in the '80s!!! The hotel is a bit far from the centre, but it would make sense if it were unforgettable... Instead it is an old-looking establishment, in a fantastic bay: El Sardinero second. If you really want to stay here... at least get the room with terrace and sea view, otherwise anything above €40 would... More
