“A Little Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stayed here for seven nights in July/August, we were met by Eneda on arrival, she was very welcoming. we were given imformation and maps about Santander and she also recommended resaurants which were superb. The hotel was very clean and room service everyday, There was beautiful coffee in the morning and the Santander pastry was very nice.The hotel and garden was very peaceful.
The hotel was very central to the city, bus stops and trains. The local bus took you to the beach for .60c. Eneda organised taxi for us when leaving for the airport, she is a beautiful person and couldnt do enough to help us, we never got to meet her brother.

I strongly recommend Jardin Secreto and will be back .

A family run small hotel. Had a big positive surprise on arrival, finding the place modern, clean, elegant and were very warmly welcomed. A small jewel, not too expensive and definitely worth the price. The family runs this place with care and love.

We stayed here for a one night stop over before getting the ferry. The format is simple; it's 6 en suite rooms, 4 at ground level, 2 at (or just below) garden level. The place is modern, well located, and impeccably clean. It's also very reasonably priced. If you don't mind the lack of normal hotel facilities, it works very well. The young staff are also very friendly. Good parking nearby too.

Comfortable, clean, peaceful, lovely room, welcoming,helpful and friendly.

We stayed here for 7 nights for our honeymoon in July and we chose the hotel because of the reviews on trip advisor. Coffee//hot chocolate and cakes - lovely in the morning and served with a smile.

If we get the chance to return to Santander we will stay here again!

Thank you!

I was visiting Santander for a friend's wedding and felt very lucky to have found Jardin Secreto for my accommodation. It is a very beautiful place to stay and I would highly recommend it. My room was very spacious, beautifully decorated and looked out onto the lovely secret garden at the back. The garden was a lovely place in which to relax and to have the morning continental breakfast.

The hotel owners were especially welcoming and extremely helpful. At one point I enquired if they might have an iron, so that I could remove a few creases from my dress for the wedding. When I came back from my walk, I found an ironing board and an iron, waiting in my room, which the hotel owner had brought especially from her own house. Such touches are testimony to the quality and hospitality of this hotel.

The atmosphere in the hotel is very peaceful and calm. I truely lovely place to stay.

We were looking for somewhere friendly, central and cheap, and the Jardin Secreto fulfilled our expectations wonderfully. Our stay almost started in disaster as we arrived on a late flight and there was no check in after 9pm. Luckily they called us and kindly stayed open later so we could check in. Apparently there's a warning on the website about the 9pm closing but it's not very visible.

First off it's a B&B rather than a hotel so there's no bar, restaurant, room service or breakfast buffet. What we got was a very nice, clean room, free wifi and a cup of coffee to help us get out of bed in the morning.

It's in a good location, just 5 minutes walk downhill to the town hall, it doesn't look like much from the outside but is very tastefully decorated inside. The garden is very small with a fake lawn but still feels like a tiny oasis amongst the crowded streets. It's not somewhere to spend a lot of time in but it is a quiet corner to rest with a coffee or a cigarette.

It's a family business run by siblings, both were very friendly and helpfull. They would always ask where we were going and recommend places to eat and visit. We would stay here again.

Jardin Secreto is a small very comfortable, well decorated and appointed, family run hotel in the centre of the city. Nacho and Enaida run the hotel superbly, and are exceptionally helpful. It is spotlessly clean with good amenities. Enaida, who services the rooms, learnt after a day or two how we liked the room arranged with respect to bedding etc, and took away unused items reducing room clutter, which was a nice touch. We recommend Jardin Secreto!

Room Tip: We enjoyed a room overlooking the garden!
