6/10 Good

Muy poca empatia!!
Hotel precioso y bien situado, muy confortable y silencioso, situado en primera linea de playa pero con muy mal servicio. Viajaba por trabajo y me levanté a las 6.30 porque supuestamente la cafeteria abría a las 7. Nadie fue capaz de hacerme un café ni en el bufete ni en la cafeteria porque las 7.30 son las 7.30, ni mas ni menos!! Una pena, no volveré!!!

6/10 Good

The rooms and comunal areas were good. I didn't like being told if I wanted dinner I had to take it in the café and not the dining room. Consequently I didn't have dinner there.

Wonderful hotel with front ocean view
Fantastic hotel located by the Santander beach with very helpful and friendly staff. Hotel room has modern interior and comfortable bed. Area near the hotel is very quiet at night, so I had good quality sleep. Internet is not that strong if you need to work or attend video conferences like me, I ended up using my mobile data. Additionally, I was missing a kettle to make myself a coffee in the room, other than that, I enjoyed my staying and would definitely return.

Got to visit, you really must.
The young ladies at Reception were really exceptional and this was one of the best hotels we have stayed at in Spain. Beautifully updated without losing any of its charm or originality. And the location was awesome too with those surfing beaches a two minute walk away. And Santander was fascinating and worth every minute.
