Excellent reception staff who resolved a booking.com error in a speedy manner. Excellent stop over in a great location with very friendly staff. would definitely stay again. The room was well appointed with comfortable beds and a huge balcony. The Jacuzzi bath was a bonus too!

We stayed two times in this hotel. Once we booked a regular double room and once a suite on the top floor. Well, the suite was worth the extra money! Incredible views over the beaches and the ocean from our huge balcony, furnished with sun beds and a seating area. A spacious room, with everything you are looking for, including... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Got a twin room ( larger than double ) and a large balcony with good view of the beach. Standards were definitely 4 star and staff very helpful. 2 minutes walk to beach. It's a little quieter than other hotels but I don't see why. Bar, restaurant and lounge all very good.

We stayed here for one night on a trip from Madrid to France. We had a room with a double bed and an extra bed for our 7 year old. It was a squish. Fine for one night but any longer would have driven us crazy as no room to move. Nice view over the beach but the balcony was... More

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.
