Stayed for 3 nights. Spotlessly clean, quiet hotel. Room had everything we needed. No tea/ coffee facilities but some lovely cafes within 5 minute walk serving great coffee. Located close to the beautiful beaches and peninsula. Sound proofing not great but this is my only complaint.

We arrived off the Britanny ferry early evening and needed somewhere to stay for just 1 night before setting off for the mountains. The hotel has secure parking which was great at 15 euros as we left most of our luggage in the car and just took what we needed. It was only a short stroll to the beach bars... More

This hotel is a good base and really close to the beaches. The rooms were well equipped and clean with plenty of towels and a comfy bed. We had booked dinner at the hotel which was a set menu and I have to say I was very disappointed. The choices were poor and the dishes themselves were lukewarm and poorly... More

When I first got a 65 euro deal for a night in this hotel (buffet breakfast included) I thought it might not be very good located after all, it would be old or something would be unpleasant. However, I cannot be happier about having spent my weekend there. The location was superb. I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay in the... More

Very quite, modern, clean and nice view. Every room had a balcony and most of them the view was to the Cantabria Sea. Very close to the beach. The only problem was our room was on the second floor and we had a lamp post direct to our window. The problem was fix by closing the curtains. Would stay again.

This hotel was great in every way. Staff very good. Food very good. Situation very good. Rooms very good. Stayed here for 4 nights and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Santander. Only ONE negative was dinner could only be taken at 8.30pm in the evening, where other hotels we have stayed in have been more flexible... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location very close to El Sardinero beach and lovely promenade. The rooms are excellent, spacious, practical and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean, all with a balcony. No need to book a Junior Suite (as I did), balconies are better with standard rooms. Popular cafeteria, decent value food if not that good. Pretty garden and outside... More

Where do we start. Arrived at Hotel after a 7 hour drive, and reception staff were not the least welcoming. I wanted to put car in underground car park, and was told I would need to empty the car before it went in, as we would not have our own access to the garage, but would need too get reception...
