Loved our stay. Paco, the owner, has incredibly beautiful pieces of art throughout the B&B. If you like staying in a unique place with plenty of art and history, you will enjoy La Doña Luz. Breakfast was excellent. We stayed in the Madonna room and were amazed by the paintings and sculptures as well as the unique pieces of furniture....

The owner and staff are friendly and helpful with suggestions for restaurants and how to find certain attractions. My rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated in Southwestern style; they included a separate living room with a comfy couch, separate bedroom and separate bathroom. The location was good-near the plaza and walking distance to good restaurants. Breakfast was pretty good. The...

What an incredibly lovely and special place. We stayed in the room with the rooftop Jacuzzi, and it was incredible. Paco accommodated our rather wacky schedule and Kerrie who served breakfast was very sweet and helpful. our only complaint was that we could not stay longer!

La Dona Luz is a home away from home. Paco and his staff do an excellent job of accommodating guests. We recently stayed in the Rainbow room for our anniversary. It is the most spacious and over the top room at this B & B. Hot tub on the roof, two stories with a full kitchen. Really nice. My wife...

We spent 2 nights in this historic and quaint bed and breakfast and loved every moment. Paco, the owner, was very hospitable and made us feel welcome and provided us with everything we could have asked for during our visit. The breakfast was delicious and the Inn was immaculately clean. We stayed in the Sonrisa room and loved the décor...

We are repeat customers. Have been staying at La Dona Luz off and on since 1995. The B&B is absolutely charming, unique and filled with lots of history. Paco the owner is very cheerful and helpful to all his guests. We definitely will stay at La Dona Luz on our next visit to Taos, NM.

It's a quaint but nice little bed and breakfast. The owner, Paco, was very nice. We felt at home and the location is perfect. We stayed in the La Luz room and the Rainbow room. I would definitely recommend to a friend!

We stayed at La Dona Luz for two nights this past weekend. I booked the room based on the affordable rate, lower than most other B&B's in the area, and convenient location. Overall, it was a nice experience. Our room (Santiago) was spacious and filled with interesting pieces from Spain. It was comfortable and clean, though a little crowded because...

The room was very nice on the second floor. The breakfast was really good too. We like to mountain bike and this was a great location! We could also walk into town. I would recommend it for sure. They made a lot of use out of a cramped space
