Hotel Juan de la Cosa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Santona
Reviewed June 22, 2011

We travelled as part of a coach holiday group from Norwich, England, and did not really know what to expect. The hotel staff provided a warm and friendly welcome and this attitude continued all week. The room was spacious and spotless with a lovely balcony overlooking the lagoon and town (others had a sea view). The food was excellent, varied and plentiful and we had complementary wine served each evening. The location, right on the beach, and about a 40 minute stroll in Santona was superb. We would recommend this hotel very highly.

Stayed 5 nights---bedrom was ok but dated as was the rest of the hotel.
Dinner had to be ordered the night before and the service, while quick, was very slap dash. Food was not a highlight of the holiday.
Staff all seemed to be too busy to be helpful.
It was not a pleasant stay.

Couldn't believe how close we were to the beach and ocean . Very friendly staff who are probably more used to dealing with Spanish speaking people than a bus load of folk with Northumbrian and Scottish accents. The food was local cuisine which was well cooked, flavoursome and plenty of it. There was free entertainment on some nights, a guided walk and an informal talk about local customs. Nearby Santona was a nice town, with a beautiful sea front promenade overlooking the bay, and inexpensive cafes.
We spent 6 nights at the hotel and on the last night were served a special dinner of several courses which was superb. Will definitely go back here

The hotel is beautifully situated and extremely comfortable. We went on a coach tour staying at the Juan de la Cosa for four nights (though must admit one would need a car otherwise).

The food was great and on our final night the hotel produced a simply super meal, plus wine and champagne - a moch appreciated touch.

Staff throughout our stay were kind and, despite the language difficulty, more than helpful and went out of their way to make sure what we needed was understood.

OK, it is far from the best hotel for meals (although the free wine at dinner was appreciated)-but I was impressed with the location. It is about 150metres from the beach with lts of picturesque walks in the area. Our room exceeded our expectations. The indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and gym were a bonus.
There are only a couple of quiet bars nearby - and no shops. The hotel bar is quite nice. The town of Santona is about 20 minutes walk away.
