We got this pension in DK Eyewitness guide book on Northern Spain. It does not disappoint us. The staff are most helpful and brought us coffee and cake to have in the garden every morning.We were told good restaurants to go to and places of interest to visit and the place was very clean.The bathroom has lovely toiletries.
We stayed 3 nights in Jardin Secreto and were made so very welcome. Our host was extremely friendly and helpful and made our visit to Santander very special. The house has been beautifully decorated and our room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The shower was excellent, the bed comfortable and the street quiet. We hope to return to this beautiful city and would certainly stay here again. Jan and Tim, Oxford
Stayed for three nights and although the outside appearance is not great, inside is totally opposite, clean, immaculate, airy and light leading out to a peaceful sunny garden at the rear. Rooms and en suites are lovely and modern with fridge, safe and a powerful shower. We enjoyed fresh coffee each morning from our wonderful host and relaxed in the garden. Five minute walk to the centre of the city so convenient and handy. Will have no hesitation in using Jardin Secreto again on further visits.
Jardin Secreto Review El Jardin Secreto in Santander, Spain is our ‘home away from home’ – literally – when my husband and I visit his parents in this lovely Cantabrian port city on the north coast of Spain. We usually stay a week or two. On a quiet street, just a few minutes walk from the center of town, El Jardin Secreto is perfectly located. Also – across the street, a fabulous pastry shop / café run by Rodrigo, and just a few doors down, the hip Colombian bar and restaurant “La Fonda” run by the delightful Marianne. One block away is Santander’s best gym – including a big lap pool and sauna / steam room. Really, the location can’t be beat. The hotel is charming – only 6 rooms – each with either a view of the lovely ‘secret garden’ or the front street. Eneida, the owner, is the perfect hostess: providing fresh towels in the morning, and coffee with sweets in the lobby. Each room is decorated differently, and in a completely contemporary fashion with little Spanish touches. The best thing (in my opinion): The showers – TERRIFIC: roomy with REALLY great water pressure, and shampoo and soap provided. It’s reasonably priced and homey. You’ll love it.…
Hearteningly welcoming, charming, still, a garden on a terrace for coffee (and smoking) in the morning facing a magnolia and the sky, and silent in the night. Harmony everywhere, and a family which knows the meaning of caring for people. Thoughtful and lovely. Be kind.
