We stayed here for two nights before catching the ferry back to Portsmouth. Port is about 20 minutes away on Motorway. Found everything at the hotel to be of a good standard and endorse other reviews of property. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was very good and I had a huge chickpea stew as a starter which could have... More

We looked for a non-city hotel for 3 nts in the Santander/Bilbao area as part of a longer trip around N Spain and S France, and Sercotel Las Rocas fitted the bill nicely. Clearly recently modernised , it nonetheless has been done without resorting to the grey minimalist fad that seems to be all the rage in Spain these days.... More

We arrived on the evening ferry into Santander, the sun low in the sky. Instead of heading straight south, we intended to visit the ruined Civil War town of Belchite near Zaragoza, so we needed a hotel between Santander and Bilbao. We chose the Sercotel Las Rocas Playa in Castro-Urdiales. An easy run down the motorway and we reached the... More

I stayed at Las Rocas during a business trip and it was good experience. People from hotel were nice, the room was ok, there is a very good restaurant into the hotel and the price was cheaper than I thought. The only negative point was the Wifi signal in my room, it was very weak, so I had to go... More

Having spent 5 days travelling through Spain from Alicante this was the best hotel we stayed in even though the others were also 4*.. It is situated in the quieter part of Castro Urdiales which suited us perfectly. The town itself is under-rated and I don't know why - we felt it was a real find. Absolutely beautiful Church dominates... More

We have stayed at Las Rocas for the past nineteen years. We have always been given a very warm a and friendly welcome. Everything about the hotel is to our liking, hence the number of times we have stayed there. We are already looking forward to returning next year.

We stayed on the 5th floor with one of the few balcony rooms overlooking the sea - great if you can get one of these. The hotel is pleasant, with a reading room with some books and games, and a good location, close to the beach. However, it is a long walk to the old city and restaurant area -... More
