Excellent hotel, rooms are lovely with stunning views from a very large balcony. There are beautiful outdoor seating areas. Breakfast was good and the staff are very helpful and welcoming especially the staff on reception. Perfect location with restaurants and bars within walking distance. We also used the hotel bar for a night cap which was very reasonably priced.

Following Trip Advisor ratings I turned up at this hotel on spec and asked if they had a room with a sea view even though the hotel was second row back from the beach. They did. Room number 313 was excellent. Clean, decent size and nice and quiet. All for about 52 euros for the night. I can highly recommend...

We stayed here for a mini break during the kids October holiday, so both the hotel and the resort were quieter. We had a corner bedroom (I think on the third floor), with a huge balcony and a wonderful sea view. The hotel is really lovely, spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. My son had a game...

A modern corner balcony suit. Very happy. The front desk very helpful, advised on tours. Breakfast was very good. We found all the staff very helpful. We found the area quiet and easy to find. We were glad we had a car as the hotel is a short distance from Santander.
