6/10 Good

Hotel was clean and room was quite big with terrace. Asked for a double bed and got 2 singles pushed together. No tea/coffee making facility available in room or free water. Breakfast was expensive; others got offered bacon/eggs, we did not just the buffet. Probably not stay there again

8/10 Very good

Overall a lovely experience. The hotel is in the perfect location to explore the local coastal area and only 30minutes away from the centre of Santander. The only things missing is the ability to make a tea/coffee in your room as no kettle available and no iron. For the nightly rate, this would have made the experience more value for money and a nicer experience as the room is essentially room only.
