Pros: Everything was more than expected, the view, location, parking, staff, restaurant services, maids, etc.

9,7 Excellent
Pros: Very good location and amazing views
Cons: Room too warm and difficult to cool down
7,5 Good
Pros: The localization
Cons: No bottle of water... too much carpet on the floor.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: We travel all over Spain and what we value is cleanliness and a peaceful nights sleep after the hectic days rushing around trying to see everything. This hotel meets those requirements. We have paid £100 a night in numerous hotels elsewhere and regretted it. This is more expensive at £150 a night but its so worth it. Quality costs money. We don't usually have breakfast in hotels. A tostada and coffee is all that we want. One of the things that we love about this hotel is that it has a very cheap cafe where you can have as much or as little as you want for breakfast. We spend a long time waiting for lifts in a lot of hotels and end up walking - not here. The hotel has 10 floors but the lift service is great.
Cons: -

8,0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and lovely hotel
9,3 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel across from a long, beautiful beach is perfect. There is a walkway along the water that stretches for kilometers. There are buses every five minutes that go from a stop by the hotel into the center of the city in 10 minutes or less. The rooms were not big, but very comfortable and the bathrooms are immaculate. A big surprise for us was the restaurant. We arrived Sunday night after a long day of travel and decided to eat at the hotel. The food was excellent, although there were few people in the restaurant. The 25 euro menu included three full courses of your choice, mineral water and wine — a full bottle for the two of us. In fact, it was a bit too much food for us, but ala carte options were also available. We’d stay at this hotel again if we were in Santander.
Cons: I’m not a fan of the long pillows they have in Spain. Would prefer two smaller ones.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff,ultra modern interior, older restored exterior
Cons: A little expensive for no sea view

Pros: Beautiful hotel, location, the view from the bedroom balcony is amazing.
Cons: Nothing
9,3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very classy and elegant, with nice amenities and views over the city and harbor. The clientele is snubby and mostly over 60. The service is very good, at par with the facilities.
Cons: Most of the clientele is obnoxious, smoking, loud and pretentious. The management doesn't seem to be interested in controlling unruly behavior, such as parked private cars right in front of the main entrance of the hotel, or smoking right at the entrance of the restaurant.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Splendid decor
Cons: The walk into town
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Rooms were very large and nice. We also had a balcony that looked out onto the sea. The hotel itself was beautiful - looked like it was a grand hotel from the 1920s. It was also located in a very nice area and parking was free.
Cons: I was surprised that there were not better amenities for guests. There is a spa with a pool, but it was an extra fee and required making a reservation. I would have thought that due to the 5-star rating, there would be some extra perks. Also, the downstairs restaurant was very expensive - €5 for a small bottle of Coca Cola.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Great location , very helpful & welcoming staff, from the hotel manager all the way to every staff member..
Cons: Pillows are not the best , nor is the Coffee . Shall an espresso machine be one of the room amenities it would be super

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was lovely and spacious and the bed was really comfy with good quality sheets. The hotel was signposted when we got closer making it easy to find and has the most amazing views to wake up to! We had a room with a jacuzzi bath making our one night stay feel even more luxurious. The staff were lovely and helpful during our stay.
Cons: We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and the public car park behind the hotel was full and it wasn’t clear where else it would be ok to park as the area is residential. We quickly found a space in a marked bay to use a few roads away to use.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: In no particular order but all important- location, style, parking, staff, village proximity
Cons: Bar stock - no wine or local beer.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Receptionist was helpful on check-in although didn't seem to have much knowledge of the local area, in particular places to eat so we struggled a bit to find somewhere on our first night. The rooms are lovely, spacious although limited storage space if you were staying for more than a few days. We didn't have dinner or breakfast so no idea if it was good or not. It's in a very quiet area although I had to close my windows due to a nearby dog barking all night long which made the room a bit too warm to sleep.
7,0 Good
Pros: Very old world hotel with matching furnishings but very comfortable. Room had two large balconies which were good for sitting out. The one staff member on at night was extremely helpful
Cons: Very difficult to locate hotel and even more so as main road was closed. Checked before hand to see if hotel had restaurant as this was unclear. It did not but we were reassured that there was a restaurant only 20 meters away and were subsequently directed to it. "Restaurant", although nearby, was a bit more than 20 m., was only serving drinks and looked as though it never served food but this may be the wrong impression. No other restaurants nearby but night staff very happy to arrange an "Italian takeaway meal" to be delivered to the hotel. All very good but not an ideal start to our Spanish holiday
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The views are spectacular, the rooms comfortable, and the breakfast varied and delicious. It was the perfect place for us (parents and 6 month old baby) to use as a home base to explore the region. The location is really great and even if you do nothing but hang around the hotel for a few days, the fresh air, views and serenity will make you feel recharged. The staff gave us tons of information about the area as well
Cons: nothing to dislike
5,0 Okay
Pros: The courtyard was pretty. Rooms were clean and well decorated
Cons: Pool water was murky. One receptionist was good, one poor. Not much close by. Nothing apart from the attractiveness of hotel to make it stand out

Cons: nothing !!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The welcome was lovely and information for our stay was clear and concise. The room itself was unbelievably comfortable and spacious. The location was spectacular and although we only booked in for one night en route south, we will return and base ourselves at the hotel to explore further.
Cons: It's not that we didn't like anything, however the ability to have refreshments on arrival would be nice. We needed to travel a few kms to get ourselves some sustenance after travelling all day.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel.
Cons: Difficult to find. Detailed directions from the A67 would be helpful on Booking.com

Pros: We loved EVERYTHING about it! It was great value for our money, we wished we would've stayed longer. Good location close to the port and walkable to restaurants.
Cons: Nothing! Great experience :)
9,3 Excellent
Pros: When first looking to book a hotel in Santander, thought that somewhere near Sardinero beach would be the best option, but in fact, Vincci Puertochico is much better placed for the bars and restaurants... and is only a short walk away from Magdalena and Bikini beaches.
Cons: Nothing negative to say about hotel as was all good. Only little thing that could be improved was the instant coffee in room!
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Great location
Cons: The air-conditioner was very basic and did not work properly. It was too cold on the warmest setting but we had to turn it off. Luckily the weather was mild.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very warm welcoming and helpful. Room spacious and comfortable.
Cons: Pictures very deceptive. There’s no views from the rooms and no balconies. The sun terrace is their street cafe!
2,0 Mediocre
Cons: 1. WIFI does NOT work. Missed deadlines! I was unable to do work because of wifi not working, missed important deadlines! 2. Every door slams so loud that sounds like bomb. 3. Smells cheap and kinda nasty. 4. Receptionists are incompetent and showed attitude instead of trying to resolve the problems related o WIFI. 5. The day I was leaving they proposed to change room. I thought it was clear expression of mocking and making fun of a customer. 5. In room 506, there is a light on the building outside near the window, which so strong that at night seems like you are the beach in front of the sun and the curtains do not help. I am not a light sleeper and I fall asleep easily, during this 4 day stay I could not sleep because of that and extremely loud door slamming. Overall experience was horrible. I flew across the globe from Los Angeles for work and due to mainly almost not working WIFI my trip was next to nothing. I feel I was robbed. This hotel does not deserve to be 4 star one.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: Bed very comfortable and staff very helpful and friendly.
Cons: Slightly overpriced.

Pros: The location of the hotel is fantastic with a very nice view to the sea. One night we had dinner in the hotel and the food was very good.

9,5 Excellent
Pros: Location, view
Cons: First floor rooftop leading off balcony needs attention.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The view from my balcony was sumptuous and the breakfast spread was good.

No complimentary bottles of water in room, no coffee/tea making facilities in room. Shower glass was dirty. We were not encouraged to book a table for dinner and when we did go down to eat, we were told they were fully booked. This is just not acceptable in a hotel. Breakfast could have been better.

7,5 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed.
Cons: Hair drier did not work and no replacement was available as other people had obviously had the same problem. The waiter at dinner was obstructive and difficult when I asked for gluten free food. He seemed to think it was fine to tell me there was a risk of contamination of everything so I could only have a piece of unadulterated meat or fish. No attempt was made to be helpful and I had to be quite forceful. He made a mistake over the order and at first refused to back down until I got really annoyed. Breakfast was rubbish. OK it was cheap but we expected better from a hotel like this. One very tough croissant and a glass of orange juice for 4 euros. As for gluten free - well that was a joke.
6,8 Good
Pros: View from room
Cons: Room smelled like a sewer. They did spray it with something to make us smell better. But I wonder what caused the smell in the first place
9,5 Excellent
Pros: It is a very well appointed hotel, though a bit expensive. Wonderful situation, overlooking beaches with sea views. An added and unexpected bonus for us were the fireworks, which display only happens once per year, and from the terrace to our room we had a ringside seat. The garage is a little awkward to access. The breakfast was poor value for money, which was a pity in such an otherwise impressive place. The staff were very helpful when through no fault of theirs we managed to trip a fuse, temporarily losing all power in the room.
Cons: Breakfast limited and unimaginative. No cooked food.

Pros: Helpful and friendly staff, very eager to assist and pass on local information. A very good choice for Buffet breakfast, food very fresh and lots of fruit available. Excellent room with three large windows and good size balcony. I hadn't realised this was the room I had booked as I got a reduced rate but it was extremely pleasant. Even though the hotel is very near the promenade there was no traffic noise. Two minute walk to the beach and very near the Magdalen Peninsular. Definitely preferable to stay in this area rather than near the city.
Cons: I only ate in the restaurant one evening as the other times the Table D'hôtel was dominated by seafood.

5,8 Okay
Pros: The bed was comfortable and the location was perfect.
Cons: The room was not great in many regards- all the rooms have carpet (gross). Due to this the rooms smell. I mean, they allow dogs so... imagine. Second, when I opened the mini fridge it had nasty old cheese looking crumbs all over it and 2 black pubic hairs on the door. I really dI'd t feel like putting anything in there. (Really nasty... I know it's 3 stars but it should be clean). The bathroom had a tub in it.... an old-Looking tub and the hairdryer only let out cold air. Not a great place especially as we paid over 600 euros for 3 nights! Maybe for 250-300 it would be a good value but at these prices it robbery!

9,5 Excellent
Pros: It’s a beautiful hotel with the beech across the road and plenty of restaurants and bars near by. We got a fabulous room with fantastic views of the sea. It was very busy we could not get parking any where on the street so we used the hotels car park which was in an apartment underground few streets away and no lift so drop your bags at the hotel before you head to it. Otherwise everything else was perfect
Cons: Car park with no lift
5,0 Okay
Pros: Location was good.
Cons: The bathroom leaked through the floor silver grate (hard to describe) but what it meant was the whole apartment stunk after an evening bath. We asked for a double bed and got a twin room. I specified before arrival that I wanted parking and then was surprised to get billed an additional 18 euros. Parking is 200metres away. We arrived 15 minutes late to breakfast after a mix up with Portuguese time zones and were refused breakfast but hotel staff felt for the 21 euros we paid that a coffee and old pastry in the bar area was sufficient. Customer service was poor and hotel staff less than friendly.

There is a restaurant down stairs but it has a strange opening hours (like the rest of the city boutiques). We found him open Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Pros: Easy to find . Close to the port . Great bedroom comfortable bed . Pleasant staff .
Cons: Didn’t try the restaurant so ate in the bar . Not a lot of choice . Roll hard/stale .
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The staff and breakfast were excellent - they went above and beyond to help and meet our dietary requirements (gluten and lactose free required). Rooms were spacious and well cleaned and eveything worked. Wifi was brilliant and very fast enabling streaming of movies etc. Sports facilities next door were exceptionally good - we used them everyday. Sardinero beach (five minutes walk) is one of the best I have ever been on - a mile of pure fine golden sand with full lifeguard cover, cleaned every night and very safe to swim. Beachside restaurants of very high standard and great value. The hotel is away from the main part of the city, being close to Sardinero beach, but easily accessible to it and its vibrant bars and restaurants, cultural entertainments, casino and fabulous shopping - all well worth visiting. Spain has kept Santander a well hidden secret from us for too long and I will definitely be returning.
Cons: Would have been nice to have one just English speaking TV channel (News?) as all were in Spanish but this is a very minor point. However, I did expect there to be tea/coffee making facilities in the hotel room in a four star hotel and there were none, so was a bit surprised by this but the fridge and minibar was well stocked. Also, it is not the prettiest of buildings to look at - quite stark - and inside the decor is a bit dated but everywhere was scrupulously clean. All these points were minor and more than made up for by the very friendly, efficient, helpful and English speaking staff - they couldn't do enough for you.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: The room was very spacious. The, shower excellent. The location near the beach... about 300 metres to walk was really good. Also short distance to ferry port only 5 or 6 minute drive and, easy to find. Swimming pool in the sports centre next door was very good.
Cons: The reception was great, both day manager and night manager were very helpful. Provided directions for local bars and restaurants.
