The hotel was originally a holiday villa for 19 century Spanish & retains all its features & charm. It was like staying at somebody's home with perfect care & comfort. Everything was within walking distance (beach just across the road, shops, bars, restaurants a few minute's walk) & Santander itself just a 5 minute drive away with its shops & bustle. (You could walk, but a car is much easier). El Sardinero is perfect for anyone who likes true holidaying without hassle; sun, sand, sea, food, history/things to see, charming people, children friendly. You could honestly arrive here as a foot passenger & not worry - the bus service is fantastic & help is always on hand. We have been to Carlos 111 three times now & it has never let us down. TIP it has cats - very charming if a little aloof. This time I brought W*****s cat biscuits which were well accepted. Only problem - parking. Would advise once you've found a space, keep it & walk!
Carlos111 has everything - charm, comfort, lovely people &, above all, homeliness.
Going next year? Of course!
