Three of us stayed for a couple of days in this nice hotel in the charming resort of Ribadesella in magnificent eastern Asturuas. Used it as a base for the Picos de Europa - on the beach in the morning - a hour later among snow-capped peaks. Friendly helpful staff, great location-a very pleasant experience.

We stayed at the Ribadesella Playa last year when touring on our motorbikes and it was perfect for us.... lovely clean, smart and attractive room, excellent service and a very good Continental and also a Cooked Breakfast. Good, free Wifi and the position near the beach is good fun. This year we booked in advance for one night after our... More

We have just spent a week at this hotel which belies its rating. We have seldom stayed in such a clean and well preserved environment. The staff (mostly family?) were extremely helpful and friendly. We had a room overlooking the beach - 20 metres away - and it was spacious, comfortably appointed and cleaned every day to a very high... More

We found Ribadesella and this hotel entirely by chance when looking for somewhere fairly close to Santander, (75 miles), to stay before catching the ferry to UK. Ribadesella is a charming little holiday town on an estuary and The Ribadesella Player Hotel is located right on the stunning beach. This little hotel was built as a small seaside house for... More

What a great location this hotel has. Woke up to a gorgeous beach just outside my room. Had taken some cough medicines which knocked me out and I managed to forget my pochette with my passport in it somehow.!!! Amazingly when i called the hotel a couple of days later they had it, much to my relief. So the cleaning... More

What a super hotel in a lovely town!! Ribadesella is one of the few towns we have visited in Spain that has been saved from over development and retains many of its old buildings. It's a little gem of a quiet seaside town, offering both a nice beach for swimming and a town for shops and eating. The hotel has... More

One night stay only so did not spend too much time at the hotel preferring to explore the area. That said the location, the area and the beach are faultless. We arrived by bus which is a 15 minute walk over the bridge from the old town and left by Feve train which is a slightly longer walk uphill to... More

We chose this hotel because of its location to Santander and it's attractive setting. The weather was not kind to us. It was very unseasonal for June. However, this family run hotel with its friendly staff and great bedrooms with views over the beach and across the bay were a great compensation. The hotel architecture and that of much of... More

Good place to have a settler in town. Very close to beach, 15m. Small rooms but price-quality good. Great staff open to any help. Close to hotel you can take a toy train to the center town, crossing river over bridge.. Lack of luxury thinks, dont needed!!

We stopped over in Ribadesella after leaving the ferry in Santander & on route for Galicia the next day. The hotel - as the location was a great choice for this. Set on the beach part of the bay - which is great if you like a run or stroll along the promenade & just the right distance to walk... More
