                we had seaview room, the room was to excellent standards would definately stay there again

                8.2

                Staff very friendly. We had an emergency and had to check-out one hour later and they waited for us to be back in the hotel with no hesitation. The bar people are amazing too!

                Hotel needs to be refubrished. It is noisy, you can hear the people around your rooms. But it's fair for the price.

                If you pay for a room facing the sea you have fabulous views of the coastline. The people on reception are very welcoming.

                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as it was very relaxing after several days of travel chaos - Icelandic volcano. The staff were charming and very welcoming. The food in the restaurant was excellent.

                If anything it was a bit far out of town for us but it has to be said we were only transitting through Santander overnigtht on our way to Al;icante.

                Location and the bonus of a room with wonderful seaview.

                We were looking to go to local caves and rent a car and the staff were very helpful.

                Fantastic location. very comfortable.

                Staff rather aloof in reception and at breakfast. but I was changed from garden room to sea-view room, which more than compensated!

                The hotel was in a prime location been right across from the beach and near plenty of food courts.

                I do not think that this hotel is a four star hotel, I have stayed in a lot of hotels over the last number of years and at most would recommend it to be a 3 star hotel. Description was Garden View Room, we did not look out to a garden, we looked out on a patch of grass where kids could play foot ball. The television was an old tv and the reception on this was not good at all. The staff members were not very helpful ( except for the cleaning ladies who were always pleasant and smiling). The staff at the front desk, one in particular, did not know how to smile I think. Would I stay in the hotel again? No

                Nice, at a good location near the sea. Basics are good.

                Room was dark and outdated. There was no opportunity to sit outside to have a drink. Need a taxi to go downtown.

                Location, with very nice sea views.

                Very poor reception staff, no welcome at all, barely acknowledged that we were there. Lack of information with regard to time of the restaurant opening hours for dinner and also opening times for the breakfast room.

                I liked the room and the great view. The hotel has a great location and the beds are very comfortable. Also, the air-conditioning worked very well.

                I did not like the fact that there is no parking. There is a drop of space, but if it is taken, there is no where to drop off luggage. Also,, there was no one (like a Porter) to help with the luggage.

                I liked the spaciosness of the room.

                The "Garden view" is not a garden. It is actually a back of a very ugly block of flat made of concrete.

                The staff were incredibly helpful and all spoke perfect English when when basic Spanish was streched. They have a delightful little cafe by the lobby which served delicious small meals and snacks.
