  • Older travelers

    The hotel had good facilities and would be ideal for travellers wanting to spend time on the beach. There are a few restaurants very close by.

    The location is not ideal for a city trip: you would need to get a bus or taxi to be nearer the main bars and restaurants.

    Although not in the town centre its location at El Sardinero is ideal for the beutiful beaches that are within a few minutes walk.

  • Group of friends

    Great location beside beautiful beaches and lovely cafes and restaurants.

    (1) Too noisy. Could hear TV/flushing toilets/telephone conversations in other guests' rooms. (2) No iron in bedroom, only use of industrial iron, with clothes ironed by hotel staff. Would have preferred iron in room. (3) No tea/coffee-making facilities in room.

    Free parking, close to the beach.

    Lack of Tissue box in room. Long walk to downtown shopping center.

    • Average rating
  • Older travelers

    The provision of secure car parking but the charge was rather high.

    I would expect a 4 star hotel to provide a full room service 24/7 when your dinner service is too late for many people.

    This hotel is not ultra new, or ultra modern, but it is luxurious and with free wifi in every room, you can stay in touch in comfort and style. The restaurant is excellent and the food is outstanding. The minibar is well equipped to cater for families with plenty of fruit juices and non-alcoholic refreshments, and the room service provides the ability to eat the gourmet restaurant quality food without having to leave your room. All together an outstanding place to stay if you like to be comfortable. Add to this the underground secure parking for your vehicle and it offers the complete package.

    The underground parking is secure however it would be better for motorcyclists if there were securely fixed metal bars that your could chain your motorcycle to, there are concrete pillars but it would take a very long chain to get around them and to the bike.

    It's a beautiful hotel in an excellent location.

    The walls are paper thin and it sounded like the very loud surrounding neighbors were in our room all night. No sleep!

    Very friendly lady on reception gave two great recommendations for dinner and rang the bus company about buses to Comillas. A faded elegance and grandeur, good breakfast , great bathroom. Loved Santander for sea and city combi
