The place is a bit old but in a great secluded spot. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms transmit noise, however. Avoid anything near lift, kitchen, etc. You will get used to the flushing and creaking sounds of other rooms or just bring earplugs. Excellent breakfast with loads of very well cut pata negra, the breakfast of champions. This all... More

After driving through Santillana's narrow streets, we arrived at this extremely attractive Parador with it's own parking- a real bonus in such an ancient village! The welcome was excellent- we were provided with lots of information and a map of the village, then escorted to our room with luggage carried for us. The room was a very good size and... More

Apparently Jean Paul Sartre called Santillana the prettiest village in Spain. Who can argue with that? We certainly enjoyed our two day stay in the Parador de Santillana, the more modern of the two ( Gil Blas is the other one nearby) with which facilities are shared. Very comfortable, welcoming, clean with good size rooms and an excellent breakfast. Didn't... More

This place was rather stressful to find, but once there it did not disappoint. Plus with a TomTom it takes you right there, its just extremely windy and cobbled. However, the hotel is lovely. Lovely service and excellent breakfast as per usual. The only complaint I have is that at 6am there was a huge amount of door slamming and... More

As mentioned this is a most difficult Parador to find, it can only be described as rustic, rooms and plumbing need updating but having said that they are clean and are fully fitted as one would expect of a Parador. The village is very atmospheric and give yourself plenty of time to explore, many good looking places to eat.

The rooms are good size ..ours had a stunning view The plumbing is a bit tired...more of a dribble than a gush Also, we were told there was WiFi in the room, but we only had it in the lobby.

Paradors are very good generally this one has a very homely friendly atmosphere. The restaurant service was very good with excellent English and balance information regarding the menu & wines of the region.

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
