Finding the hotel in the January evening gloom was the most difficult part of the journey from Bordeaux, but once there our welcome was warm and efficient. The room on the first floor overlooking the square was massive and well fitted. Pre-dinner drinks at the bar were excellent and a were accompanied by a new tapas on each round. Dinner... More

Setting is great, in center of an ancient medieval town. Parador is very nice, like other paradors. But finding it was tough. Town map provided at front desk is adequate but shabby. Why don't they stock those nice maps from the tourist office down the street? It could have achieved 5 stars but it seems to be a bit understaffed,... More

We arrived at our second Parador hotel and were given an amazing room in the corner overlooking the main square! I was quite surprised but very pleased as we hadn't asked for an upgrade room. There were three windows with shutters on two walls and the room had a beautiful canopied bed. It was very dark with the small windows... More

An easy 20 miles from Santander port and therefore an excellent stop either just before or just after the ferry. The signposting didn't seem very clear but stopping to ask a couple of locals we found it at the top of the old city. There are loads of restaurants in the vicinity within walking distance. Room was perhaps a little... More

This is a delightful parador located on a main square in the pedestrian area of Santillana del Mar. The rooms are large and well appointed. The bathrooms are huge with plenty of hot water. The service here is top notch from the front desk to the porters to the restaurant to housekeeping. WiFi is complimentary and the signal is fairly... More

The hotel was sheer luxury. Rooms are very spacious and beautifully furnished. The outside terrace is great for pre-dinner G& T's. Bit difficult to find in the pedestrian streets but you are allowed to drive through if you're staying at the hotel. Set in the old town of Santillana Del Mar which despite being full of tourists during the day... More

This Parador is set in the centre of the old town of Santillana. Difficult to find in a mainly pedestrianised area and set in a square off the narrow cobbled surrounding streets. Lovely big old rooms and very comfortable, with acceptable bar (there are lots more in the village) and a good restaurant. The breakfast is not worth including. It... More

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days for a business trip. While the location wasn't optimal for conducting business (picking up & dropping off was quite difficult with tourists crowding the streets), I can't fault the hotel for that, and it was quite centrally located right in the center of the village. The staff was professional. The facility was... More

Just half an hour from the ferry at Santander, it is in an amazing building in asuperb location in the centre of Santillana. The room was excellent, the service was excellent - friendly and efficient. The evening meal was fine, breakfast a bit ordinary.

Situated right in the central square of this historic village you could not better placed for exploring, for restaurants and for bars. The hotel has an ambience and a charm of a byegone era. Albeit all the facilities are present day. An excellent restaurant. A relaxing garden for coffee and evening drinks. Attentive staff. Rooms are traditionaly furnished and feature... More
