Booked through a holiday travel agency in Edinburgh,Scotland. Extremely happy with the location and the Hotel staff have been first class. Food in cafeteria for the evening dinner was excellent. We will be back.

we stayed at the Rio silken last week the hotel was brill the staff were the best, nothing was to much trouble for them, the room we had was overlooking the beach, for the money it was value for money, breakfast was all you could eat, the girl in the bar did everything you could hope her name was belen what a girl we had her speaking a little English by the end of our stay, We be going back there in September, THANK YOU VERY MUCH RIO. BRYN/JAN LUXTON WALES.

GOOD THINGS: - the place, opposite from one of the main beaches in Santander, v close to the Palacio de la Magdalena - the breakfast is very comprehensive, high quality, with international and local products - the beds and pillows were fantastic TO BE IMPROVED: - maybe the bathtub, a little old Absolutely recommendable!

Good service, personal in the reception does well a service and takes its time to give the information. Hotel in edge of beach, distant from the city center but the bus line nearby (passage all 10 minutes).

the hotel was very good very clean the staff were very helpful. the views out to sea were great my wife loved this hotel we will definitely return .the hotel room and breakfast room were spotless and the food was very good.

Stayed in top floor room with amazingly view of Sardiero beach. Unfortunately the pleople next door had a wikd party til 5am so I couldn’t sleep as the walls are paper thin. Didn’t expect this from a 4 star hotel. Room was squeaky clean , comfy bed & receptionist very attentive. Just hardly slept due to the inconsiderate party next door. Came to relax & went with a headache. Hotel needs to be more on top of what’s happening there in the night. No tea making facilities which I missed. Complimentary toiletries were good.

Good balance between price and quality of service in Winter time. Very friendly personel and sympatic room. Hotel is situated nerby Grand Casino and Plaza del Sardinero - really good for Summer trip. I met many people form Santander and from Hotel Staff, who were very friendly. I like Santander, specially fish cuisine and openess of people

We had a very good stay in this hotel. Easy to find, great location for beach and city. Was a very clean hotel and all the staff were very helpful. Would recommend this hotel for a great stay in Santander.

The room was modern and clean and the bed comfortable. The biggest attraction was the location - the ocean view was splendid (room with a sea-side view). The breakfast could be nicer and the coffee stronger, but nevertheless I strongly reccommend this hotel.

Stayed at hotel in sea facing room ,air con did not work that well this is the only criticism I can give as hotel opposit beach and had all fertility s as said in there brochure I would say some of the rooms are a bit dated however it looks like rooms are being refurbished and the staff helpful we would stay again
