Within an hour of Santander this is a great place to stop over before or after your crossing, especially if you have children. Pechon is a small, unspoilt resort with only a handful of places to stay but some great beaches. Probably the best one is just a 10 minute walk down the lane at the side of the hotel (but if you have pushchair, parasol etc there is a car park down there). It's stunning to look at and has beautiful sand,shallow waters and lots of rock pools. Pechon has a few restaurants and a really good one is just on the corner opposite the hotel as is a children's playground. The hotel itself is quite traditional but attractive and well maintained and has a nice relaxed feel to it. There are seating areas outside as well as a comfortable lounge. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon without prior reservation and got the last room and may explain why it was so disappointing. It was on the top floor, in the eaves and so both bedroom and bathroom had a sloping ceiling which is a challenge when you're over 6 feet! But that was fine really for one night. However, the beds were metal framed and moved around every time we got in or out, almost tipping over at one point. We think the adjoining room had similar as we heard theirs scraping the floor too. The mattress protector was plastic coated so that too made a noise when you turned over. In the evening we had showers and the water pressure was fine. In the morning there was literally no water from either washbasin or shower. The receptionist acted surprised but I don't believe this was an isolated case. She told me to wait a few minutes but when there was still no water 10 minutes later, she let us use the shower in a single room on a lower floor. I realise this paints an unattractive picture but if you can ensure a better room, this hotel is definitely worth considering for the reasons described above. Very reasonable for B&B though breakfast was the usual bread, cheese, ham and pastries.
