A surprise stop here, lovely looking hotel from outside. Room was big, roomy and clean. We asked for non smoking but it really did smell smoky. Hairdryer was one of those useless wall ones, that sounds like a vacuum cleaner. Breakfast was expensive at 15€ but lots of choice and plenty to eat.

Very comfortable rooms and facilities, but hotel seems very quiet at weekends, with facilities little used. We had a few drinks in the hotel, but are out because over the werkend the hotel restarant was completely empty. However, there are any number of restaurants and cafes in the immediate arwa, and the hotel is also just across the road from... More

We stopped here on a two night 'stroller' break with Brittany Ferries. The hotel was a stone's throw from the beach. It was beautifully maintained, polished within an inch of it's life! The staff gave very friendly and unobtrusive service, clearly taking a pride in their work. I would recommend it and will definitely be going back to stay there.... More

Have visited Santander several times now, usually before catching ferry back to UK. Last time we stayed at the sister hotel to Hoyuela, The Gran Hotel Sardinero, which is just across the road from this hotel. We stayed at Hoyuela because it was offering a better deal this time round, although we have had excellent deals at both hotels, considering... More

We stayed at Hoyuela for 6 nights. In spite of the other reviews regarding the rooms, our room was small, cramped and extremely uncomfortable. It looked like we were in an attic that had been modified to a room. We asked to change rooms and the very sullen front desk clerk told us all the rooms were the same. Not... More

If you plan to visit Santander and the El Sardinero district in particular then look no further than the Hotel Hoyuela. Sure, there are plusher hotels, bigger hotels with more choice, but the Hoyuela feels like a small home away from home. I found the staff to be ever attentive and obliging, charming and knowledgeable and willing to help when... More

Hoyuela is a very nice hotel. Lovely large clean rooms, we paid extra for a Seaview Room but as there were only approx seven of the fifty rooms occupied during our stay, think we could have had the pick of the rooms. The bathroom was large, marble with a very good range of toiletries. The staff are mostly helpful, the... More

The Hoyuela is an OK hotel with friendly reception staff and reasonable rooms. Parking in the garage is worth paying extra for, albeit it is a little bit tight to get around if you have a large car! The small suites are of a good size, but are beginning to look a little dated. However, they are well equipped and... More

We stayed at Hotel Hoyuela after our 24 hour crossing from Portsmouth, excellent choice, close to the ferry terminal and right by the sea, in a really nice area of Santander. The hotel has private parking, always a plus when you have a packed car, the rooms were spacious and very clean, big comfy double bed, and a good size... More

Stayed two nights, was only going to be one, but decided as Santander and hotel so nice to break journey here. Really good value, great room overlooking sea, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, good a/c and heat, great bathroom which was really well stocked, even sewing kit and shoe shine! Reception staff very helpful. Lots of parking outside, even though public... More
