Bahia de Boo
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Straight off the boat after a 27 hour crossing, we had booked a couple of nights here to acclimatise. (From the ferry we followed the A8 towards Bilbao and came off at Guarnizo at junction 5, then followed signs to Astillero onto the Calle Prosperidad.) Prosperous it is not, but the Bahía de Boo is easy to find, friendly and the rooms were great, with a well equipped kitchen and good shower. This is not a traditionally beautiful location, but it is very characteristic of industrial northern Spain! There was something comforting about the sound of the train across the marsh early in the morning. We had a REALLY good dinner at La Oliva, further along the calle, and on the same side of the road. Locals eating there, and very good food for 90 euros for five of us. We took a day trip to Bilbao and swam at Oriñón on the way back. A very welcome start to our trip.

Room Tip: Overlooking the marsh are quieter

I would recommend these apartments, specially for families , as it is within easy access to Santander by a bus service. It has as well a supermarket just near by. The staff were very friendly, and helpful as when we arrived from Bilbao our car broke down and had to call the insurance to fix it., even though it was not time to check in they let us in the apartment as much as we needed as well as helping with contact details and phone calls, as we needed to travel back to UK by Ferry the following day.
The apartment was very clean , comfortable and with the basic necessities if you want to cook, eat, etc. It is just perfect for a family of 4. We will go back to them in our next visit to Santander.

We got off the ferry at 6pm and didnt fancy a 2 hr drive and then putting the tent up, so booked here for the night. Its easy to get to, and easy to find. We had a 2 bed apartment overlooking the marsh (and, more distantly, the railway and road). Very clean, comfortable, well kitted out. There is a good supermarket just 200m down the road so we got some supplies from there and cooked, though we heard there was a good pizza place nearby. The people who ran the complex were really friendly and helpful (although spoke no English!). The free secure car park was really useful.

My wife and I have just returned from a holiday in Spain including three nights in Santander. Our choice of Bahia de Boo Apartments was a good one. A short drive from the ferry terminal with supermarket, restaurant, bars and a delightful pizzaria a short stroll away. The staff were polite and helpful. The apartment was clean, comfortable and adequate for a short stay. An added bonus was secure underground car park. We would stay there again.

A very good apart/hotel 20 mins from Santander ferry. The wife and me plus our bull dog Maizy stopped for one night in March 2012, we had a large apartment with cooker, fridge,washing machine spainish tv and balcony over looking the marshes.there is free under ground parking,a supermarket and garage 5 mins walk away and a bar next to hotel. The room was nice and clean but the cutlery could have been cleaner the guy on reception was very helpful and spoke a little English for 55 euros we thought this hotel was excellent value and we will use it again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to over look the marshes
