My partner and I spent the first ten days of September in this delightful hotel. The stay was very much made for us by the lovely room we had - No. 58, first floor with wonderful panoramic sea view and very quiet. The food was well prepared, fresh and quickly replenished. The gardens around the pool had a lot of... More

Agree with previous reviewers: the hotel trades on its setting right on the beach. We arrived on 3rd September, a treat to ourself for our wedding anniversary. Not a good start, reception staff said they had no record of our booking and a very rude receptionist who kept waving paper in our face saying we had cancelled. Explained that we... More

Stayed at the Hotel Playa de la Luz for 3 nights while visiting friends. Made the booking well in advance requesting sea rooms. Upon arrival was pleased to find a nice looking hotel, but with a tiny car park for the number of guests which leads to problems parking (possibly only at peak season). Check in was reasonably painless, however... More

The hotel is a bit old but well maintained. It was extremely clean. The facilities match with a 3 star hotel. The food was great. The beach was average. There are other much better Playas nearby. The rooms were sufficient but not very cosy.
