I took my Mum here 3 years ago(only just googled it again), and to us is one of the best places we have stopped in in Europe over the past three years, I really do not need to write anymore, you will certainly not be disappointed, especially breakfast time, beautiful place and venue for beaches, sand, cliffs and sun, brilliant.

We booked two nights here on our first leg of our Northern Spain trip, and it turned out to be the best accommodation we stayed in. Our hostesses were very friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean and well appointed and the added personal touches were really nice! We ate in Casa Bedia restaurant which is only a five... More

Built in the footprint of the grandfather's farm, this hotel and the family that run it offers sumptuous rooms with amenities that one wouldn't expect to find in a small establishment. There was a free minibar in the room and a complimentary bottle of... More

We used this hotel for an overnight stop prior to catching the ferry from Santander. it was a wonderful find; the suite we booked was comfortable, nicely decorated and the jacuzzi bath was very welcome after our long car journey.
