We arrived on a Friday evening and were given a room at the rear of the hotel which did not even have a view of the sky. We would have liked a sea view but as the hotel was fully booked for the weekend could not obtain a sea view room. No doubt we could have changed later the next week but did not relish the thought of packing everything up again. In any case the room was very comfortable and nicely furnished in a modern contemporary style so decided to stay
Breakfast in the smart diningg room was excellent with plenty of nicely presented fresh food to please all tastes.
The location could not be better. Walk one way to the beaches or take a bus from the stop opposite the hotel. Otherwise walk for about 5 minutes into the town's bar and restaurant area where you will find dozens of places to eat and drink. A little further on will take you into the commercial area where you will find the bus and train station.
The hotel is in a smart parade of shops and is a great place to sit outside with a long drink, relax and enjoy a view of the harbour and watch the prosperous and chic locals parade up and down in their finest clothes.
We have to thank Oscar in reception for his helpful advice on local restaurants etc.
Santander is certainly a find with some of the best beaches we have ever seen, and we look forward to another visit staying at this friendly hotel and exploring the area some more.
