“Miserly!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Loved Comillas - I recommend it highly, but I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. The rooms were decent, clean, but nothing special. Very thin walls. Great view of the sea with blackening curtains. What bothered me, though, was the fact that breakfast did not include a coffee refill. So cheap!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

A first visit to Comillas, Northern Spain as a family. Apartment within a modern, well located building. Right hand side entrance a hotel, left hand side apartments. Use of hotel facilities available includes a pleasant bar/café (glass of Rioja or beer E1.50). Plenty of free parking
A warm welcome from the owner/managers, a mature couple (wife spoke good English), who proved very helpful throughout our stay.
Apartment we used was one bedroom with sofa bed in lounge. It had a useful basic kitchenette, dining table, a sizeable bathroom and air conditioning that proved a little temperamental. Plenty of wardrobe space. I found the apartments quiet with a mixture of couples, young families staying. Comillas is a gentile place; a bit like Cornwall, but warmer.
Location is a 5 minute walk into the village centre which was a collection of narrow streets and picturesque squares. Beach c10minutes walk is well maintained soft clean sand and gently sloping.
Apartments would be a good practical choice.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor with sea view

This is a new and pretty hotel with sea views.
Tourist bus friendly and mostly empty in a late May visit.
The cons: paper-thin walls allow verbatim auditing of normal conversation
in adjoining room, a sheet and bed cover (no blanket) on bed, nice views but
no curtain to block morning sun, two thin pillows and two tiny
towels. Hardly luxury. Rooms are modest and plain. Most have balconies.
We paid 50 euro each for a single and a double. Public areas modern and spacious.
Only stay if adjoining rooms are vacant unless you
want a shared intimate experience.

Room Tip: Vacant room on either side

Apartamentos Mar is a short (but steep !) walk from the centre of Comillas, a stylish yet intimate resort west of Santander. We chose it as the base for a 10-day holiday, a mix of beach, mountains and city.

The apartment was perfectly adequate and had enough facilities to give us the freedom to make our own meals. Sound-proofing was non-existent so adjacent guests and marble floors made it noisy at times. Our only other negative was the very poor matresses on the beds - springs could be felt easily. Bathroom was clean and the shower effective. Bed linen and towels were replaced once in the week we spent there.
