Right in the middle of town. You may well have fun finding it 'though! We had a quiet room, very large, furnished in dark wood, with a good ensuite Very clean and the staff were friendly. We ate across the square at the Gil Blas Parador which is a 'stone's throw' away. If you choose to eat on the terrace... More

We travelled down the North Coast of Spain and as a treat stayed at the Parador in Santillana del Mar. It seems 'tired' and the room was nothing special. The main hotel is located in the village square, but there is also an annex with underground parking. We did not find the staff to be friendly or helpful. The evening... More

A nice parador. The rooms are fine but what really makes it is the location. The breakfast was typical parador with plenty of choice. The staff were also typical - they don't smile much- but helpful and polite which is the most important bit. We've stayed here several times because it is convenient and we still love it. The corridors... More

We stayed here on our return to Santander airport and found it to be central and handy.The parador itself was one of the dearest and a little frayed around the edges.It did seem to play second fiddle to the other parador.The staff were not so friendly and although travelling independantly we felt that a large biking group staying there received...

A bit of a strange relationship with the Paradore Gil Blas in Santillana. Both are defined as paradores but in fact currently the Paradore de Santillana across the square is operated as an anex. The Gil Blas has the restaurant and bar and the car parking is shared by both paradores. That said the Paradore de Santillana has its own... More

Stayed just before taking the ferry. What a charming stopover. Beautiful little town, touristy yes, but still well worth the visit Oddly, had to eat in the neighbouring parador, but that wasn't too hard. The town is full of restaurants, quaint houses and a myriad of Kodak moments.

Right in front of another Parador (better rated), this one is a very charming place. In a late medieval town, close to Santillana Zoo, and Altamira caves, this Parador is awesome. Rooms are nice, clean and confy, the staff was very nice and accommodating. The little town is incredible, especially at night. Lots of restaurants and bars where to have... More

I have never been before in any other paradour, this has been my first experience and therefore I cannot compare it with any other paradour, but I have a strong positive feeling towards this hotel. Breakfast was fantastic with an incredible choice of meat and yogurt. Rooms were very authentic. Location excellent in the middle of town.

Being a frequent visitor to Paradors, we were not surprised, but pleased with the general atmosphere here. The accommodation excellent, the food good and the staff very friendly. As with all Paradors, it is spotlessly clean and comfortable and near the famous Altamira cave system, which is very interesting. The coast is lovely and lots of small sandy beaches abound.... More
