Being located in the centre of Santillana is great as you experience the special atmosphere of the town. In the evening, you can walk out and take a drink on the nearby romantic terrace. The parador restaurant (that is shares with the Gilblas parador) is quit poor. The food is simple, they only include two plates in halfboard and the... More

There are two Paradors in Santillana del Mar, and in our view, this is the better of the two, although it has fewer facilities. At the time of year we were there, the Agapanthus flowers were in full bloom, and looked wonderful. Reception is less busy than the Parador Gil Blas over the road, so service in quicker, and on...

What an experience driving thru old road, maybe a few inches on clearance on each side of your vehicle. The surroundings are great! Hotel staff very attentive and cordial. Very comfortable room, beautiful old furniture. Looking forward to return to this site.

The bathroom was not very clean (black mould in the shower, dirt around the edges of the floor, especially behind the radiator WIFI was very poor to not working at all. In the... More

Friendliest and most efficient staff, from welcoming reception to amusing dining room ladies, we have experienced in 8 years and over 40 Paradors, with excellent breakfasts and dinner menus and service. Location in the centre of beautiful Santillana with easy car parking and in early June very few visitors in the town. Excellent centre for Santander and Cantabrian coast and... More

This is another lovely Parador situated in the middle,of a small town that has been preserved lovingly. It is as if you are transported back in time. The architecture of this town is wonderful. The Parador is in a great locations for wandering through the town and coming back for a break or refreshment, Hope to return again!

What a beautiful Parador. The rooms were comfortable & quiet. Old furniture that fitted the age of the Parador. Breakfasts very good served in the hotel. With a Restaurant just across the road for evening meals. Lovely friendly people. Plenty of parking which is a necessity. A great position to walk, explore, eat and drink.

This place is so cute! It's old school but very pretty. It has a bed and breakfast feel to it. I loved the service and vibe. The breakfast was extra but they had a large selection. The town is super cute, don't wear heels because it's all cobblestone. Loved it!

The place is a bit old but in a great secluded spot. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms transmit noise, however. Avoid anything near lift, kitchen, etc. You will get used to the flushing and creaking sounds of other rooms or just bring earplugs. Excellent breakfast with loads of very well cut pata negra, the breakfast of champions. This all... More
