I have been booking at this hotel for more than 35 years. September 1, 2016 is the last time I stayed at this hotel. When I arrived, the receptionist, Raquel, very rudely asked for payment in advance. I agreed to pay in advance, but I did inform her that this was the first time in 35 years that this hotel... More

Great location with great food Needs maintenance to provide luxury stay commensurate with its cost. Shower diverter blew out of fixture so to use shower instead of bathtub had to ask neighbor to hold diverter in place to take shower Wow a bit too much excitement for wife!

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It has a good location - just a short walk from the beach and close to a bus station with great connections to the city centre. The room and bathroom were clean and had a good size but I don't recommend staying in the 1st floor. There is a bar outside and a... More

We spent two nights here in August 2016 and loved it! The hotel is not especially attractive from the outside, but inside it is clean, smart and airy. The reception staff were really helpful and friendly. Our room was pretty and quiet with a good bathroom. The fabulous Sardinero beach was at the bottom of the road and there were... More

Santemar clearly needs a brush of paint and some new electrical wiring, but the mostly Spanish guests in this northern Atlantic Ocean city don’t seem to mind too much, and why would you: the beach is 200 meters away, good restaurants are all around (and very affordable), the sun is a guaranteed guest (in the afternoon only though) and the...

Our family of 5 visited Santemar in May 2015 while overseeing a studies abroad program. The accommodations were cozy and very clean and comfortable. We had a lovely view from our window as well. The hotel itself was luxurious, including the lobby, walkways, and the dining area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was just a stone's... More

Stayed here one night on recommendation for business. Very good location to walk around the promenade. Many bars and restaurants outside. Lovely staff. Rooms ok with everything you need. Comfy beds, bathroom a little tired but ok. Nice bar outside for drinks.

Nice location near the beaches, sightseeing, comfortable room, easy to either walk or catch a bus for touring. The Café has a nice staff of waiters, the outside bar was lovely to have a drink after dinner. A very nice stay

Hotel is near the beach but a bit far from town (30 minute walk). I found the hotel facilities average for a 3 1/2 star with average furnishings and food quality. The room we had didn’t have good views as it looked the rear of the hotel utilities. Service was OK also. WIFI reception was not the best.
