Abstract: With the development of the tourism industry over the last three decades, there has been growing interest in evaluating the efficiency of the hotel industry from a regional perspective. This paper joins this stream of research and assesses the performance of the Spanish hotel industry using a two-stage double bootstrap data envelopment analysis methodology. Additionally, we extend research on the impact of environmental variables on efficiency by examining the impact of four variables: length of stay, number of international tourists, destination quality, and the sun and sand tourism model. The results show a high degree of hotel inefficiency for Spanish regions and a significant effect of the environmental variables considered. These results give policymakers more accurate information for future strategic decisions, especially because that tourism constitutes a strategic sector of Spain’s national economy.
