    This is a must-see, very beautiful town.

    This is a must-see, very beautiful town. It is close to the Altamira Caves, although we decided not to visit them. We ate in a little restaurant at the square and the food was incredible and very cheap. We got to Santillana del Mar by car and it was easy to find, parking is available and overnight parking was free.

    Santillana del Mar is a well preserved historic town in beautiful setting. Lovely to walk the cobbled streets and soak in the ambiance of the old town. The Catholic Church was really interesting as was local museum- downside was no English signage in either. Barely 2km from town is the astounding Cave of Altamira and museum. They have protected these prehistoric caves by building a museum containing an accurate replica of the caves and artwork. That alongside a fascinating exhibition of the era concerned made for a compelling visit. In high season, best to get there early as there are limited numbers going through the museum. Lovely walking through area and viewing (from distance) original cave entrance. Beautifully maintained and very helpful staff. Information in Spanish & English. Multitude of cafe/restaurants in old town with great food

    This place is unique, as are each of the houses / places to stay - so much character! The church of Santa Juliana is a gem, and the 12th century cloister is amazing. The village is a lovely blend of culture and country - incredible architecture and free-range chickens / horses. Altogether delightful!

    Santillana del Mar is a beautiful village with some lovely buildings but is leaning towards being overly touristy and much of what was on sale was repetitive and not great quality. However, it has a superb ceramics shop - if you are interested in lovely pieces then do visit ARPA.Also a lovely little leather goods sho[ and a couple of decent jewellers .

    Santillana del mar is a pretty well preserved medieval/...

    Santillana del mar is a pretty well preserved medieval/baroque town. Half a day is enough to walk round it and visit the monasteries. Not surprisingly, it is a popular tourist stop. Avoid eating on the main road, but there is a little gem of a restaurant just opposite the tourist info office. A few km from the town is the Costa Quebrada, a stretch of beautiful rugged oastline well worth walking along. Finding it through tge suburban sprawl of western Santander can be tricky (ask at the tourist office for more info), but it is worth it!

    Good location on the road close to the old town of Santillana del Mar, about 10 minutes walking, where you can find restaurants or you can drive about 8 km to Suances beach with many places to eat. There is a private parking at the hotel. Room was good at the ground floor with terrace, very quiet at night. Good A/C and wifi. There is an outdoor pool but with no shades. The breakfast was good. The hotel is about 2 km from Altamira Caves Museum.

    Set in a beautiful and characterful period building, the hotel retains many original architectural features whilst incorporating all requisite modern facilities. It is tastefully decorated with the facsimile Leonardos and other Renaissace masters an amusing addition. The staff were particularly excellent, most helpful, attentive and clearly enjoying their work. This was an exceptional place to stay which we cannot recommend highly enough.

    The hotel is situated at a little park just outside the old town of Santillana del Mar. The staff was very kind and helpfull, and we were allowed to bring towels when driving to the beach. The breakfast included was good, but not exceptional. The rooms were big and clean, and the beds were very good.

    This hotel was centrally located near a quiet park in Santillana. It was an easy 5 minute walk into the historic centre where there were great bars and restaurants. It was also only a 2.2km walk to the Caves. The hotel had good parking and the room had everything we needed.
