This large, elegant hotel is situated right across the street from the beach, just beautiful. Great views of the water. The area has a great ambiance. The sand on these beaches is so clean, fine, soft, easy to walk on – just perfect….and the beaches are so incredibly wide, they seem to go on for miles and that is one... More

My friend and I came for 5 nights for the Sardinia Yoga holiday and we are so happy that we chose to come here out of all the other yoga holidays we could have chosen. The hotel itself is a perfect mix of luxury and rustic charm with an amazing pool, secluded seating areas and views of the ocean. Our... More

Extremely comfortable hotel that has clearly had a good makeover in the last couple of years. The exterior is everything you would expect from a grand old seaside hotel. The interiors are cool and refreshing modern. There is pleasant cafe/bar on the outside terrace much loved by the locals. Front desk whilst not overly friendly were efficient and helpful. Our...

Grand hotel Sardinero has been renovated three years ago and look great. You can park in their own garage by using a car elevator! We had room 320 with sea view. Big room with two sofa's. Nice bathroom with rain shower. What stuck us was the very silent airco. Quality! The breakfast was good but the staff was not very... More

Wonderful hotel right on the Sardinero beach in Santander. Checkin was quick and allocated room on the 3rd floor overlooking the beach, 115 eur a night but worth it for the sea view. Room was spacious and very tasteful, muted colors and lots of cushions and fabric. It did feel very luxurious and elegant. Beds were firm and very comfortable,... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find we had a free upgrade to a suite.The bed was so comfortable we had the best night sleep ever. The reception were so helpful. A perfect start to our holiday .

We recently stayed at the hotel over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was an initial hiccup on the room type, where a double room does not necessarily mean a double bed. After a call to reception our room was changed and ultimately upgraded thanks to the great customer service from Maria Jesus. The hotel itself is a... More

Beautiful location and building. Check in quickly. Had a room with balcony at front side. Large room, big bathroom. High ceiling, clean room. Bathroom: tub and good shower - and all amenities you can think of. WIFI is free and works good in the rooms. Breakfast is on the low side - the scrambled eggs look like uncooked egg soup... More
