Going to Spain and staying at Paradores is turning a regular trip into a high class experience. It is one thing to stay in a regular hotel, but staying at a Palace and walking the halls of a structure that could be hundreds of years old is really something else.

Situated in the centre of this charming town, perfect location. The hotel is comfortable and cosy with a fine restaurant and a very varied breakfast menu.Staff are friendly and welcoming. Large rooms on the first floor offer all the comforts of luxury with balconies overlooking the gardens at the back.

This parador is situated in the middle of the old town of Santillana Del Mar. It was a house once owned by the Barreda-Bracho family at the end of the 17th century. The room that we have is a huge double bedded one, with a modern, marble bathroom, luxurious large bath towels and a great restaurant. Walking around the town...

This was the third Parador we stayed in on a week's tour of Northern Spain. Found our way through the village thanks to a previously downloaded map. Convenient parking at Parador opposite. Friendly welcome and escorted to our room. Lots of creaky floorboards, antique furniture etc. throughout the hotel make a great atmosphere. Our room looked out onto the terrace...

A wonderful experience in a truly magical location. A town locked in time with accommodation to match. nearby there were wonderful beaches and many places to visit. It was close to Santander Ferry port which meant more time could be spent sightseeing

the facilities are very beautifully maintained and all places are accessible by guests. by evening, the restaurant is choked full of diners and the entire place become very much more lively. facing a big empty square, it is nice to people-watch if you choose a room facing this direction.
