My five day stay at this hotel was very enjoyable; the room was comfortable with a terrace and excellent sea and beach view. There was no mini bar in this room which would have been a pleasant addition. The breakfast, included in the price of the room, was second to none with a choice of cooked meats, sausages, fresh and tinned fruit and a truly enticing selection of fresh cakes and pastries.
The one negative was the very intermittent availability of the free wifi on my iPad. I seemed to pick it up more frequently on my blackberry phone. I speak Spanish and did initially have help from the reception staff but they had to give up after several attempts. Also the codes were complex and for me there was no wifi at all on the cafe terrace.
I will return to this hotel but not if I need reliable wifi.
Santander and Sardinero are beautifully kept places, with several long walks on the doorstep. The gardens, parks and cliff walk to the light house, not to mention la peninsula, are well worth a visit. The people are all dressed so stylishly and are a joy to watch strolling along the esplanade. There are also lots of joggers and runners. I recommend a flight to Santander, a bus from the airport - 2,20€ to the centre and the beach path walk from the town centre which leads all the way to Chiqui. A fabulous few days!
