If you really want to get the feel of an authentic Taos, New Mexico accommodation then visitors will not be disappointed with La Dona Luz! The inn is beautifully restored and is one of the oldest buildings in Taos. Each room has it's own special style and features for every kind of traveler. We stayed in 'The Rainbow Room' with...

My wife and I stayed in the Rainbow room two nights. We decided that we would love to live here. The room is actually three floors of experience with a hot tub on the roof!. The hand carved wood in this room and the entire B&B is totally amazing; part of the history of this Inn which I won't begin... More

La Dona Luz is located at the heart of town, easy walking distance most places. Paco is a great host. He has kept this place up for years, but has left the authentic décor whole. This is turn of the last century Taos. The rooms are charming. Breakfast is good, even more for conversation with other guests than food. You... More

This beautiful historic adobe was the home of "La Dona Luz"-a most respected lady of Taos. This is a great location in the heart of town, near the plaza but tucked away in a narrow side street, so there is serenity and privacy. Truly an amazing quality art collection, vintage Native American handcrafts and handcrafted furnishings in the rooms and... More

We made our reservation over the phone and the conversation should have showed me that we should have picked another place. We are traveling with our 9 month old so we asked if they had a crib available. The conversation from there was as follows...The answer was "most people bring their everything they need now a days." Me: "Ok, well,... More

My first stay at this incredibly charming B&B began with the thot, "I'll be staying here again!" I was completely enamored with the decor! I took photo after photo and so enjoyed my wanderings throughout the various rooms, all highlighted with brightly colored paintings on the walls, doors, furniture and cupboards. So very much love has gone into the decorating.... More

My husband and I were passing through Taos on our Harley when a rain storm force us to find a room for the night. La Dona Luz was a wonderful surprise. If you want to experience old Taos Charm this is the B&B for you. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Decorated in an authentic Southwest style, it did... More

This B&B is located literally in the heart of Taos, just one block from the main square. I prefer to breakdown the different aspects of the visit so here they are: Location - Being smack in the middle of town has benefits and drawbacks. It is quite easy to get out and walk around. There are a number of shops... More

This place was such a great surprise. It was a bit hard to track down as it is set a little back from the curb, but once you find it and open the door you are in for a treat. The door was locked when we arrived, but Paco told us to park around back and use the other door.... More

What a find...right in the heart of one of our favorite places on the planet... downtown Taos...situated right across from the plaza, and a short stroll to great food, microbrews and live entertainment. We usually choose to stay in The Santiago room, and love the ambiance, the coziness, the comfort, the food, and the people. Paco runs a great B&B,... More
