We needed to be close to Santandar for our next day sailing and the location proved ideal. Our twin room as requested was ideal with a small balcony overlooking front of hotel.The beds were very comfortable and our small dog enjoyed his bed near the balcony doors. The shower room and toilet were excellent with walk in shower being well... More

Hi Hugh! We are pleased to know that your estance with us was satisfactory, despite the issue with the hair dryer, respecting the eggs and bacon in the breakfast, we prefer to make them when the customer order it, because would be more tastefull, we will keep the thing that the paper is a little bit small and we will...

Dear 65johan, Thank you for let us know your opinion of the hotel, we are glad to see that despite of some little things, your stay was satisfactory, and we encourage you to come more times! About the noises, it could be because we use to reform 5-6 rooms per year, and maybe the workers do a lot of noises,... More

This was our first stay at this hotel and resort. The hotel is superb and the staff are too. We were made very welcome with our dog and our room even had a small sea view. The area itself is not very dog friendly, would be fine in the Summer months when you can sit outside, but we were restricted... 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.

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
