My husband and I came across this hotel on our travels to Spain 2 years ago and liked it so much that we decided to return this year. The location of the hotel is perfect for us as we like to take the ferry to/from Santander when we visit Spain, and Santillana del Mar is only about an hours drive away from the port.
The hotel itself has a warm and welcoming "feel" to it with lots of dark wood, big furniture, ornaments and lovely paintings on the walls. The rooms are big and always immaculately clean, and the beds are very comfortable. We paid extra for the breakfast, which was very good with exception of the temperature of the tea water. I am as passionate about my tea as most Spanish are about their coffee, and I expect the water at the breakfast buffet to be scolding hot but unfortunately during this visit it was more "luke warm" than hot.
The hotel provides free wifi and car parking outside the hotel on the other side of the road, plus extra car parking space just up the road.
The staff is lovely and most of them speak good English if you do not want to test your Spanish.
Santillana del Mar itself is a lovely village with fantastic beaches within a 15-20 minutes drive away, and it is also famous for its Altamira caves which is the reason we ended up visiting this place the first time around. We have enjoyed every visit to Santillana del Mar and we will definitely return both to the village and the hotel within the foreseeable future.
