Excellent hotel, rooms are lovely with stunning views from a very large balcony. There are beautiful outdoor seating areas. Breakfast was good and the staff are very helpful and welcoming especially the staff on reception. Perfect location with restaurants and bars within walking distance. We also used the hotel bar for a night cap which was very reasonably priced.

We had a corner bedroom (I think on the third floor), with a huge balcony and a wonderful sea view. The hotel is really lovely, spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. My son had a game...

A modern corner balcony suit. Very happy. The front desk very helpful, advised on tours. Breakfast was very good. We found all the staff very helpful. We found the area quiet and easy to find. We were glad we had a car as the hotel is a short distance from Santander.
