Having disembarked late at Santander, finding thiis Parador is not easy especially at night and in a rainstorm. The medieval hill village of Santillana is wonderful and not far from the port. Once in the village square you must locate the Parador Ruy Blas.....this is not your hotel. By facing the building opposite Ruy Blas and driving down the left... More

As part of a car tour through Brittany Ferries, this was our first night stopover. We arrived in torrential rain, not good in an open top car, and threaded our way through the ancient narrow streets to the Parador car park. It is in a delightful setting within the old town itself which is a World Heritage Site The staff... More

Stayed one night on a half board basis at this Parador in the centre of this historic town - which was therefore ideal (for us). Vehicle access in to the town is controlled by an automatic barrier – though when we were there the barriers were ‘down’. There appears to be an intercom connection at the barrier to the various...

The parador was in the centre of Santillana del Mar with good parking at 5 euros per day. It was extremely clean, comfortable and efficient. There was a restaurant in the adjoining Parador and plenty of choices of restaurants in the small quaint town. Quite a lot of tourists but nevertheless a quiet location. The breakfast was expensive .

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
