Town centre is easily accessed by local...

The direct neighborhood is quite but the beaches in the area are excellent, very tidy and nice, very 'white' even. The hotel is perfect to relax and to start your trips to other locations in the area of Santander and even Bilbao. The...

Rooms were clean, it is very convenient for the beach, there is plenty of secure parking. Lunch in the hotel was nice, good value and friendly waiters. Didn't find all of the staff as friendly however some were even quite rude. We stayed on the first floor which was quite noisy and had a tiny balcony. It is located in...

The Deluxe Junior Suite with Terrace is so worth it. A sweeping view from the 5th floor over the Ocean with a nice terrace and a light and airy and clean room. Very comfortable bed and separate shower in the bathroom and double sinks. The only issue is the food selection and availability of food before 8 pm, including room...

It is an old but with comfortable amenities and an unbeatable location. We were very happy because their service is good, prices very fair , and the hotel has everything you need. It is just some steps from el Casino.
