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

Quite simply a lovely hotel - beautiful and classy on both the outside and inside. Very comfortable immaculate room and lovely bathroom. Breakfast buffet is not cheap at 14 eur but there is such a large variety of high quality food, it didn't feel overpriced. (I remember the hilton by madrid airport charging €28!) Location by the beach is excellent... More

Booked a seaview junior suite with an espresso machine. Room is clean but slightly dated. WiFi supports only one computer per room. Front desk is helpful and eager to help. Good restaurant. One time waiter switched TV channel, everyone had to watch a bullfight while enjoying their dinner.

An excellent hotel, very clean and efficient. Short walk to shops and beach. Ideal for a family stay. Good parking facilities. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice (buffet self service) Evening restaurant was excellent food. Staff always helpful if not particularly cheerful. Rooms good size, clean and well stocked bathroom. Recommended.
