“Lovely hotel experience”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 via mobile

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 and there is a lovely big supermarket and plenty of little bars and a couple of restaurants nearby. For the price I found it an excellent choice.

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.

We only spent one night here and wished we'd booked longer. We had a beautiful room with a sea view. Had a delicious evening meal in the hotel restaurant. Lots of bars and cafes close by as well as a lovely beach. Would not hesitate to stay here again and can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here before our departure home, found by accident, and £100 cheaper than the other five star in the same chain. Would 100% recommend this hotel to everyone looking for an 'old fashioned' classy hotel, to stay in. Loads of bars and cafe's with easy access, very friendly staff, beautiful rooms with glass atrium central to lifts and common areas. Staff spoke English very well, and although this is a Spanish tourist area, we did not feel uncomfortable at all.

Beautiful sea view, lovely beach where the locals all arrive around 3pm after school/work etc. felt very safe and comfortable being in this area. Walk to Santander town in the evening took about 40 mins, get a taxi if you're not walkers, we are fit and active, and enjoyed it. In Santander itself, it's full to brimming for food places, and the Spanish eat later than us. HAVE TO POINT OUT, I am vegetarian and this was NOT a good place for me to eat, incredibly fussy yes I know, but salad and chips I was not prepared to eat. There are no fast food places to eat at, no pizza, once mexican and you are hard pushed for a fussy eater. All that aside, i'd book a week at the Hotel Hoyuela any time. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must, it's the most beautiful lit up place, at night....

Easy to find next door to the Casino and opposite the beach in the centre of the Sardinero strip area of Santander. Handy underground car park.

Spacious room with side sea view and large well appointed bathroom.

A good comfortable base for exploring the area.
