Good value beside Sardinero beach

Nice location just off Sardinero beach; beside bus stop with connections to Santander centre, or a 25 minute walk into town; supermarkets and some bars and restaurants nearby. Pleasant to walk to Palacio de la Magdalena and Cabo Mayor from here. Building is unremarkable to look at, but apartments are very spacious and cleaned daily; but only a few rooms likely have a nice view. Staff are friendly. It seemed very good value when I was there in mid September 2018.

Not a resort facility

The amenities in the apartment were abysmal. There was only one warped frying pan and one pot that had so much of the lining pealing I was afraid to use it. No bowls and the coffee cups we small with no handles. There was no coffee pot or way to make hot water. The front desk answered questions but offered no help. The TV played no English channels. Not the kind of apartment that is comfortable for several days. The information also said it had laundry facilities and I even called Hotels.com to confirm and when I arrived they did not. The restaurant was fillies with old men smoking every day. Not inviting to go there for a drink. It smelled bad so if you are sensitive to odd smells, you won’t like it. I think it is an old folks home that has a unit or two available for rent. Location was great, parking on the street was easy, accessible and safe.

Super Sandinero Hotel

Location is superb 5 mins from a great beach and the town centre and the bus to Santander,but the walk in is beautiful .Really helpful staff, excellent value, good facilities ,unfortunately the bed was too firm for us and the shower was a nightmare, both faults which should not put anyone off as the shower may have been repaired by now and the bed is a personal preference.

Stayed 7 nights in Jun 2018
