Ridiculously underpriced hotel with every facility and service needed for a relaxing stay. The personal touch of a hospitable, gracious owner was evident both indoors and outside and her staff were kindness personified. A perfect stay.

This hotel was just lovely in every way. Modern in style and decor. We were greeted at check in with a glass of Prosecco and chocolate, our room was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable and all the staff were so pleasant and good at what they did. We didn’t get to fully enjoy the outside pool area because the weather was a little cool while we were there but the town of Santillana is beautiful and only a few minutes walk. I really can’t fault it.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The beds were comfortable, the shower very good and the room a decent enough size. There was a coffee machine in the room and the Wi-Fi was good. Secure parking was available at a cost. The staff were all very nice. The furniture throughout the hotel was very modern, but not very comfortable, solid plastic with the odd cushion, but that was just the contemporary look that they were aiming for. We booked a room with a large balcony and a hot tub. All of these things were present, but a little disappointing. The balcony was enclosed, had no view, one side was on a main road and the chairs were just not comfy enough to make you want to spend a lot of time in them. The hot tub was nice, but did have a few bits of green at the edges.

We just loved hotel Cuevas. A modern, chic hotel with a traditional style exterior in keeping with local medieval architecture. Inside there are so many architectural and great design features including a “green “ wall. The rooms while not huge are stylish and very comfortable. The bathrooms are very large though with double sinks. Outside is a lovely terrace, swimming pool, hot tub, a treehouse with sofas and a bar created from a camper van. The dining/breakfast room is also very stylish serving a lovely breakfast including eggs made to order. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and seem to care about this hotel and looking after its guests. The free parking spaces were already taken so we used the hotel’s underground car park: never seen such a glam car park (10 euros a day charge). The historic town is five minutes walk away. Highly recommend staying here

The hotel is an excellent location for exploring Santillana Del Mar, and it’s also a nice walk up to the Altimara Caves and museum. The hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful, we didn’t use the pool but had a drink on the terrace. The room was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The shower was excellent & the hotel provides plenty of toiletries. We were on a motorbike tour and stayed 2 nights, it was great to have the underground parking for the bike Highly recommend this hotel

Yes, the high rating is warranted. Spent 2 nights. Really nice new hotel, helpful staff, good clean amenities and comfortable beds. Thank goodness for proper air conditioning. We were a bit concerned by the stern communications when we booked, as the hotel goes to great lengths to advise that it is ADULT ONLY. No sneaking in small people, babies or pets ! Easy walk into town, which is very pretty. And we walked up to Museo de Altamira which was very pleasant. Highly recommended

Quite simply one of the best hotels we have ever stayed inn- and that includes 5 star+ hotel in Singapore. Great position for exploring Santillana and surrounding area. Extremely welcoming, helpful, friendly & professional staff. Cleanliness was excellent, breakfast was fabulous, fresh and well presented. Very stylish throughout. Our room was amazing, towelling robes provided and a very good assortment of toiletries. Super shower. We did not use the swimming pool, but noted it was cleaned thoroughly, daily. All of this and it was extremely good value too. We would definitely, highly recommend Hotel Cuevas.

We stayed here in mid to late August 2022 for 9 nights and chose the breakfast included option. This is an adults only hotel and it was amazing! All of the staff is super friendly and accommodating as we are late risers. The breakfast buffet is very complete and they will also cook you eggs to order and some meats. We also had dinner in the hotel a few nights and the food is just fantastic. It is very relaxing as there are no kids running around and everyone is very respectful. Our room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. We had a big jacuzzi as well as a separate bathroom with shower, toilet, and sink. Bathrobes and slippers are included and we also received free t-shirts to lounge around in. The room was very comfortable and roomy and we had a nice terrace right at pool level at the rear of the property. Parking was on site and enclosed and also spacious. The hotel is located just on the outskirts of Santillana and it is a very short walk to the city center, just 5 minutes. The best part is the staff. They are all so helpful and speak various languages so there is never a problem. We received some great recommendations on what to visit and where the best restaurants where. All of our questions were answered with enthusiasm and they really transmitted their love of the area and their desire to be of service. We took up so much of the front desks time it was ridiculous. This hotel deserves to be 5 stars instead of 4!!! We will definitely come back for some more relaxation and just plain being spoiled! We are in love with Santillana and Hotel Cuevas!
