We recently had two visits to this hotel, on arriving with Brittany Ferries and prior to leaving . On the second stay we had a Junior Suite for two nights. The room was large, very clean and had an excellent roof terrace. The staff were excellent, very helpful with a good knowledge of English. Definitely deserves its 4 stars, and... More

The hotel rooms were fine with balcony and very clean. Staff extremely helpful. Service good. We didn't eat in the restaurant but noticed it had 2 Micheline stars! Breakfast excellent but was spoilt by quite a lot of guests putting half of it in their rucksacks and handbags. We watched them, it was so obvious. Eggs, bread, ham and pastries.... More

The rooms were clean but very basic and something you would expect from a 3 star hotel. The breakfast (both at the bar and downstairs) was terrible. The melon was hard, the tomatoes were watery and had no flavour, the orange and apple juice came from a carton, the scrambled eggs where simply not tasty...Had it been a 3 star... More

Is on the edge of town but very impressive. Our room had a balcony overlooking the sea. Parking was available for 14.5 euros per night. We had no complaints and staff very friendly and helpful. About a 25 minute walk into town or 5 minutes by bus. Located near beaches and beautiful location.

Santander is quite a posh seaside resort, all very well kept, and very relaxing because of it. This hotel fits into that ambiance perfectly - it's in a great location, just a few minutes to a very nice beach, and right next to the beach-side promenade, as well as being close to pleasant bars and restaurants. The hotel staff are... More

It was a very pleasant experience staying at this hotel. A very nice walk to the main areas, along the beautiful clifftop promenade. It rained a bit when we were there, but that did not dampen our enthusiasm for the place. Prices were reasonable, but the the under cover, secure garage, was a bit expensive at 15 euros night. Very... More

We stayed here early June for 4 nights. The Hotel is well situated just off the main coastal road. 20 mins by car from airport. It is a very pleasant up market area and seems to attract many locals. The beach is a stones throw and it is about 20 mins walk to the city centre or port area or... More

We stayed for one night following the 24hr ferry crossing from the UK, before we set off on a motorbike tour of the Pyrenees. Rooms were large, clean & airy, with sea views & a balcony. Underground parking for the bikes which was really useful, secure too. Breakfast was your typical continental buffet, felt like we were in a wedding... More

The hotel is just one block away from the beach and perfect to go for a walk around the playa or the peninsula. The rooms are contemporary and comfortable. Restaurants are near by and hotel breakfast is okay by Spanish standards. Friendly and very helpful staff.
