We have handpicked our hotels on the Camino de Santiago based on their location, facilities, character and comfort.
You will usually arrive at your accommodation in the afternoon, giving you plenty of time for a refreshing shower and exploring the local village or town; or perhaps you just want to unwind and relax for the evening.
Your walking day will be complete with a traditional meal at your hotel, prepared with the best fresh regional products so you can sample the local cuisine. We always give preference to properties recommended by recognised guidebooks and who have their own restaurant and awarded with a quality label.
In addition, our reservations team visits the hotels we work with regularly to ensure the quality of the Camino Travel Service we provide you is top-class. Please don’t hesitate to request information about our selected hotels.
In some cases, we have even designed the route so that it will take you to a hotel we particularly like. However, it can happen that on certain stages of the routes the accommodation, whilst always clean and friendly, will be more basic. This is due to the fact that some of the areas can be quite remote and therefore accommodation in these locations will be very limited. At CaminoWays.com we always try to get the best possible accommodation available on the route.
Not a single experience abroad is complete without good food! We also place emphasis on regional products and traditional dishes. This is an important criterion in our hotel selection. Meals are typically made from fresh, local products; following traditional or regional recipes.
Please note each country has different meal times and traditions; which is part of the experience.
Generally, most properties will offer travellers continental breakfast, particularly in small places. In 3 and 4* hotels, and boutique hotels, you can expect a wider selection.
We can include a picnic lunch as part of your itinerary, including sandwich, fruit, chocolate or cereal bars. However, you will often find bars, restaurants or shops en-route. Ask our travel specialists for advice on your specific route.
Our standard package menu includes a 3-course meal with starter, main course and dessert. *For additional details, read our blog post Food on the Camino.
