I'm having a hard time making a decision so am turning to all of you. I'll have a three nights around Comillas/Santillana and trying to decide which to stay in. The hotel in Santillana looks a little nicer, and it's a little closer to the things I want to see, but they'd both be fine and close in price. I wouldn't be there in the middle of the day so would miss most of the heavy crowds (end of May) in Santillana, but how is the town in the evening to get a dinner and wander? I assume the stores would be closed, but do the restaurants feel as touristy (read:expensive) as people have said it feels during the day? Are evening wanderings and restaurants better in Comillas?
I'll be able to see both towns for half day at some point but am about to flip a coin on where to stay.
