Large hotel with great views along the beach. Rooms are clean and modern and staff was friendly and efficient at check in. Managed to park no problems for free just outside. A bit outside the city centre but has a great beach location. A nice place for breakfast just about 5 mins along promenade. Double bed is 2 large singles... More

Hotel Chique was our port in the storm although being out of season probably not at it's best.Our room was light,airy,clean and well appointed,the views from... More

This hotel is situated at the tip of the Santander plaja. It offers majestic views of the sunrise, the sunset, the never ceasing waves of the Cantabrian sea continuously mesmerizing and captivating your attention. It is not only that. There are many locals who come to the hotel's cafeteria to have a drink and enjoy the sea, the place is... More

Following stay at Hotel De Oso (see separate review) we stayed at this hotel. Totally different. Only one waiter smiled in fact one was so miserable he would make Victor Meldrew the life and sole of a party. The food was plentiful in variety and quantity but of a supermarket quality and the fresh orange for breakfast was more like... More

Hotel Chiqui is perfectly situated for an expansive view of Santander's Sardinero Beach. Be sure to book a room with a balcony or you'll miss the primary reason for staying here! To access the beach, just walk back four minutes along the street that borders the beach; you'll find a stairway/ramp down to the beach itself. Good people-watching here! We... More

We stayed for 4 nights in early October with 6 of us. Our adjacent rooms had fantastic views looking out over the bay towards Magdalena. Great location for a beach holiday as long as you don't mind the pleasant walk or short bus ride to the town centre. The walk to the lighthouse from the hotel was lovely. We ate... More

Our first stop on our tour of Cantabria and Asturias did not disappoint. We had a great room with a balcony overlooking the fabulous Sardinero beach. The hotel is the last hotel on the bay, very quiet and ideally placed for a walk around the bay. Impressed that the hotel provided beach towels free of charge. Would love to go... More
