4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed five nights at this lovely hotel with the best location in Santander. For a family room for four persons we payed the somewhat stiff price of 200 Euro a night. Without breakfast included. This would have been OK if we could feel welcome. Unfortunately the staff in the reception didn't do that, even though we spoke Spanish and... More

Really exciting to go to the grand hotel in Santander! Arrival fun for children first by using 'car lift' to park underground. Beautifully and tastefully decorated and felt very luxurious. Two double beds in each of our rooms and luxurious bathrooms with beautifully thick towels. View over impressive Casino and famous beach over the road. Staff friendly and welcoming. Lots... More

We only stayed one night after getting off the ferry from Portsmouth. We were on our motorbike for the start of a European tour. The staff were very friendly on our arrival. The room was very spacious, which was a relief with all if our gear! The car park is situated underneath the hotel, there is a neat lift for... More

Gran Hotel Sardinero is alongside the glorious beaches of Sardinero. The rooms are very well appointed which makes for an extremely comfortable stay. The staff are friendly and helpful and the Hotel is only 15 minutes drive from the Ferry port of Santander but far enough away to seem like a different world.

Perfect location, on the beach and within walking distance of a select number of bars and restaurants. Our room was spacious, well appointed with very comfortable beds. Overlooking the front of the hotel with views of the Casino on one side and the beach and extensive coastline on the other our room was a perfect base for our two night... More

This hotel is definitely top class. The reception area is nice as well as the breakfast. Our bed was very comfortable and we had a room with a terrace on the top floor. It was a very generous sized patio with a small bench to sit upon and we could see the ocean. The room has electronic drapes in the... More

Great location and lovely view of the beach and sea from many of the rooms. Staff very helpful as we asked if it was possible to change rooms so that we could have a bath rather than a shower and they managed to sort that out for us very quickly. Underground garage very good and worth the money. Thank you... More

Breakfasts are adequate but in comparison with other hotels are not imaginative. . For example, the breakfast eggs are only sun-topped and fried There is no choice of soft boiled or scrambled. There is the impression that a catering firm has been brought in as all the food is standardised and the baking has the stale taste of the supermarket,... More
