Very good hotel, with a lot of parking space in the surrounding area (free of P ticket). The direct neighborhood is quite but the beaches in the area are excellent, very tidy and nice, very 'white' even. The hotel is perfect to relax and to start your trips to other locations in the area of Santander and even Bilbao. The... More

Rooms were clean, it is very convenient for the beach, there is plenty of secure parking. Lunch in the hotel was nice, good value and friendly waiters. Didn't find all of the staff as friendly however some were even quite rude. We stayed on the first floor which was quite noisy and had a tiny balcony. It is located in... More

All rooms have private balconies and we utilised ours. We used the underground garage as we had a car full of vino and other goodies to to take to... More

Room was beach facing, as requested, and cozy for our stay. Only ate in the restaurant on one of the nights but it was very nice. This hotel is situated in... More

The Deluxe Junior Suite with Terrace is so worth it. A sweeping view from the 5th floor over the Ocean with a nice terrace and a light and airy and clean room. Very comfortable bed and separate shower in the bathroom and double sinks. The only issue is the food selection and availability of food before 8 pm, including room... More

It is an old but with comfortable amenities and an unbeatable location. We were very happy because their service is good, prices very fair , and the hotel has everything you need. It is just some steps from el Casino.

We were on a 7 night package with Brittany Ferries. The hotel is four star and fully deserved its status. We had a corner room with 180 degrees sea view and balconies.. The whole place was immaculate and the staff impeccable. At our first lunch I had poured some wine into glass but found it a little cold so I... More
