This was our second visit to this luxury hotel, we spent 2 nights on the last leg of our return journey from the UK. We had the warmest welcome back. All of the team work very hard to please and are most professional. The manager, Ned, is fantastic and was most helpful (when I emailed him pre-visit) regarding our travel and the rules through lockdown. Ned also made the effort to find us during our stay and welcome us back personally. The hotel is beautiful, spotlessly clean, very well located and the food is wonderful. I have to mention the quality of the bed linen, it’s superb! We used the valet parking and were able to stop right outside the door of the hotel. Our luggage was immediately taken up to our room and check-in was easy. We travel often and have stayed in some beautiful hotels around the world and would not hesitate to recommend Hotel Maria Cristina. We will return, for sure. If you are considering booking then do it. In my opinion, you will not be disappointed.

What a fantastic hotel. Top notch service. Beautiful luxurious rooms. Fabulous food and perfectly situated to explore San Sebastián which is well worth a visit. I was there with my 4 year old son and it caters more for an adult but we still enjoyed our time and would return if just for the hotel.

This hotel is possibly the best in spain. They really dont mess about. Every little thing you need is catered for and they all work so so hard for you to genuinely enjoy your stay. My girlfriend celebrated her birthday here and left so so happy with many happy memories. Of all the 5 star hotels we have stayed in around the world, we have never experienced service on this level. They made us all feel like rockstars the whole time here, and booked us last minute reservations at some of the finest establishments in spain. The only thing this hotel misses is a swimming pool, however they have that covered as they are a 3 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The room and bed are the comfiest places we've ever been, we slept like logs the whole time, the breakfast is very special, fresh and caters for international clientele perfectly. I feel like I want to say so much more however I want to say thank you to Ned and all of his team here. Not just for working so hard, but in their positive attitudes, kindness and generosity. Unforgettable experience 7stars.
