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... More

We began our Spanish driving holiday here with 3 nights enjoying Santander, having previously just driven off the boat or just stayed one night. The hotel is very conveniently located overlooking a lovely beach but close to the local bus service. We parked the car outside when we arrived and didn't use it again until we moved on to Bilbao,...

This is the third time we have had a one night stay in this hotel and in every case we have found the accommodation excellent. We use this hotel because it has free parking (unsecured unless you want to pay for it), the rooms are modern and all those we have used have balconies and sea views. As a stop... More

Close to many amenities, including the wonderful El Sardinero beach, Racing Santander's football grounds, and some pricey but delicious restaurants. Stayed here with a friend in August 2012 and was not disappointed. Excellent breakfasts with good choices, helpful multilingual staff, and nice clean rooms with a good view of the ocean. Chiqui also has a charming family orientated atmosphere and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Chiqui as part of a holiday booked through Brittany Ferries. The crossing was smooth with comfortable cabins and pleasant staff. On arrival in Santander the hotel is a short drive away costing no more than 10 euros. The hotel is set just off the most beautiful blue sea and golden sand beach. Reception... More

Excellent Hotel. Stayed recently for 7 nights and found everything to be excellent. Reception staff helpful. Cafe/Bar seemed very busy and staff seemed to be quite stressed and not over friendly to English, preferred to serve Spanish regulars first. However only a minor point otherwise first class.

Good location at the end of the road next to the Ocean, not far from the city. Take the boulevard to visit the old city, it’s worth it. Free wifi, when you ask for the code. All the information you need to know about Santander is available on the reception. Friendly on the reception, in the dining room rather stressed,... More

Lively hotel, but not noisy in a good location for the beach. Rooms were modern with balcony and sea view. Bar had outside terrace overlooking the promenade and was pleasantly busy. When we arrived we noticed the room next door was occupied by a very young baby and we were worried that we would be disturbed but there rooms were... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our touring holiday of Northern Spain. We stayed in 3 properties, all chosen from the Brittany Ferries website who were very good to deal with. We had a larger room than we'd expected and although we didn't have a balcony we did have a sofa in front of floor to... More

The hotel is in a great location, and was quite clean, however: The advertised WIFI access did not work throughout our entire stay, with staff shrugging this off. The service in the restaurant was very poor and in fact to the point of being rude. The room was very hot and uncomfortable due to the hot weather because there was... More
