San Marcos Posada
Reviewed 20 August 2012

We worked out way across from Santandar with our 2 small children staying 2 nights each in 4 destinations. Our last 2 nights were in San Marcos, a '4 star' hotel in Santilliana del Mar – the most expensive/highest graded hotel of out trip. The room was pocky and not particularly clean (notably the bathroom), the walls were wafer thin so you could hear everything(!) from the next room. This was clearly a beautiful property prior to conversion, bought by somebody solely for profit gain only… everything was done on the cheap… and everything was charged 'extra'… the 'Spa (indoor swimming pool had to be booked and children were not allowed in anyway(!) and internet access was charged too! The beds were (by a country mile) the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. There is little personality in the hotel and converted without finesse or style. Unfortunately for San Marcos, we had just come from a 1 star hotel not far away in Potes, and far superior to this '4 star' San Marcos Posada. On a positive note… the food was good.
