“Beautiful location, sleep to the sound of the surf”
Reviewed 11 June 2011

We recently returned from our vacation in Spain, spending two nights at Hotel Josein. The rooms all face out to the sea and our rooms had enclosed terraces with tables and chairs to enjoy the view of the water. Windows open wide to let in the breeze and sounds of the surf. Clean, simple...the big plus is the view and the terrace. Short walk in to the village which was a charming medieval village...not touristy like Santillana del Mar. Friendly management. A great way to start our vacation!

Room Tip: ask for a room with terrace

Reviewed 27 July 2010

Hotel is in a fantastic location, overhanging the beach. Comillas is a wonderful little town to stay for 2 nights. It has an old and well-to-do centre which is about 200m inland. The beach is quite separate and not spoilt by shops or fuss. Most other Comillas hotels are more in the town or on the outskirts. From Hotel Josein it's a 300m walk up a slope and down a slope to get to the town, but everything in Comillas is walkable anyway. Parking is at front of hotel and space is limited when busy so no guarantee of a space. Breakfast was absolutely fine, orange juice out a machine, bread, good croissants, and a variety of cereals. A good value 2 star hotel, very laid back atmosphere, a simple no frills set up. Be ready to speak Spanish not English.

The 50s building is pretty horrid from the outside but the amazing views from the hotel rooms have to be seen to be believed. It's almost like being on a boat with the massive windows filled with a seaview. Owners friendly enough but don't expect any breakfast if you're even five minutes late. Nice comfortable rooms and clean modern bathrooms. Our room had free wireless internet. Only downside was room smelt a bit smokey.

A real find. This modest 2 star hotel charges a mere 60 euros for the best view i've ever had! Our good sized room overlooked the stunning sandy beach, that is to say the hotel is situated on the beach! We could see the ocean from our bed! A great restaurant el faro not far from hotel.

Stumbled upon this motel/hotel as we were driving from Bilbao Spain towards Santiago de Compostela. Hotel Josein is in a small little village on the coast in Northern Spain in the Cantabria District. The room had a ocean view with windows that open up completely to let the ocean breeze in. The village has a beautiful beach that is so inviting.

We were lucky enough to stay here during the offseason (mid April). The hotel staff were very friendly and the bar and restaurant very quaint. As the town is small, accomodation would be very difficult in the summer as there are not alot of accomodation available. However, a visit here is well worth the stop. There are some nice views above the town looking over the ocean and a few gardens, museums and churches that should not be missed.

Enjoy lovely Comillas!
