We only booked in for one night at the Posada Araceli as we were returning from France and were heading for Asturias to visit family before returning to Andalucia. We wanted to get in a visit to Santillana del Mar which we had heard so much about. We booked the economy double with bathroom and were given the option to... More

It is a wonderful place. The staff/owners are wonderful people, very helpful and corteous. The place is very clean. Location is excellent and the Posada is beautiful. For the price you can not find anything better.

We stayed at this beautiful Posada on Sunday 5 April after a long drive from La Manga. The room was very clean and quiet. The outlook from the posada is to the park and it is situated on the edge of the town. The continental breakfast is served at the table and nothing is too much trouble and everyone is... More

A very friendly, warm and welcoming hotel. A local man told me it's the best run hotel in Santillana! Comfortable room and very clean. Close to local bars (essential!) and within a 2 minute stroll from Plaza Mayor and the centre of the idyllic village. Do your usual homework with restaurants but there are plenty to choose from, particularly Los... More

We really enjoyed staying here. They could not do enough for us. The house is lovely, the rooms big, and the area quiet. It's nothing fancy, just very homey feeling. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom large, and we never ran out of hot water. It is meticulously clean. It's so wonderful to be able to stay in a traditional... More

We had an overnight stay here and very pleased we did. The house is traditional and charming. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The place and rooms were spotless. Great location and easy parking, short stroll into town. And the owner has some fabulous artwork on display. Excellent value for money and would definitely stay here again.

The large illuminated signs ensured we found this Posada, the warm friendly informative welcome and the eagerness to please as well as the excellent facilities ensured we would want to visit again. On arrival we were given a map of Santillana as well as information about the place. The Posada was warm with central heating throughout and wonderfully decorated in... More

Great location. Quiet, just outside of the center, but within a 5 minute walk. The room had a lot of character, cozy, and with a big bathroom. Very clean. Excellent Hosts. Would highly recommend this place!

This little establishment on the edge of Santillana was perfectly located - 5 minutes from the old town and a short trip to Altamira caves. I'm not sure if any English was spoken at all, but it was a good chance to get a proper Spanish experience in what appeared to be a family run small hotel. There's no air... More
