The rooms are warm, very clean andinterestingly decorated.There is wide driveway alongside the hotel which offers some parking.Its a short walk into the old town and umbrella's are available for loan which...

We spent a night at the Posada Araceli while we toured local caves with prehistoric cave art. We could not have been more pleased with our choice. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival, given excellent local information about sights and restaurant choices, and sent off with a fine breakfast the next morning. The entire Posada was extremely clean and has... More

They agreed to open the breakfast room at 7.30 to accommodate us and were true to their word. Location is convenient, quiet and just off the 'main drag'. Our room was clean and comfortable... More

We moved to this family run posada from the Altamira Hotel in central Santillana which was far too noisey. Thankfully Araceli were able to accommodate us for 5 nights which was a great. No balcony but space and chairs outside to sit in the communal garden. Rooms are on the small side but extremely clean and comfortable. Everyone here was... More

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

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
