This was our first experience of a Parador and we were not impressed. Firstly it was difficult to find. The satnav kept saying it was on a limited access road and to park and walk. We rang the hotel for directions but still got lost. Eventually we parked the car and found the hotel then drove to the car park.... More

I would normally rate all paradores with five stars because in my opinion they after terrific value for money. You get a comfortable room, with fluffy towels and lots of toiletries in an interesting building with a breakfast offering a wide choice and a three course evening meal with first class service all for £60-£70. To find the parador go... More

Quite nice room, big, with parking at E6 per day. Finding the hotel and its car park was extremely difficult. We ended up asking 3 locals, including a policeman before we found it- normally vehicles are not allowed in the village. Room nice, quiet. Breakfast is here with dinner at Parador Santillana Gil Blas a few yards away (4 star).... More

This was our first experience of a parador and we were very impressed. Apart from Garmin bringing us in to the wrong end of a pedestrianised town, we had no problem finding it. The parador is well located although the town is so small that everything is close anyway. The building is relatively modern but charming and quaint nonetheless. Room... More

What a fantastic little town, stuffed full of history and bars/restaurants. One night stop-over after Ferry to Santander and we were delighted by the two Pararores - we stayed in the "Parador" but 2 mins away across the Square is the other "Gil Blas" Parador where we had dinner (breakfast in our one). The staff were fabulous and so proud... More

Once you have found the hotel it's a little gem. Parking is the problem because signage to the hotel is poor . However once you get there it is an oasis of calm. Reception was helpful. Our room, like all the hotel is dated and quite Spanish, but still very good for all that. Our room overlooks the front courtyards... More

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.
