We stayed here last night and had a relaxing and enjoyable break. The large room had a separate sitting room and impressive bathroom. The bedroom looked directly on to the beach. The hotel is nicely laid out with a good variety of eating and drinking options. The staff, without exception, we're courteous and helpful. There are some good walks next... More

Had 5 days at this hotel recently. It is a little out of town but right on the beach which is golden sand. The junior suite we had was spotless ( I am fussy when it comes to mattress covers and pillows) both of which passed inspection, they appeared new. The reception personnel were very helpful with times of catamaran... More

We are just back from a very relaxing and enjoyable break of 5 days in the Playa de la Luz hotel. The hotel is beautifully situated especially if you enjoy walking and you are NOT looking for lots of night life. The rooms were adequate, very clean, the breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold foods and the... More

I have been already in many places around Europe and some north Africa. I know what does it mean 2,3,4stars of hotel in Europe and 5 stars in north Africa.

I stayed at this hotel after I my plane was grounded and there were no available rooms on the naval base.. happiest accident ever! I slept with my balcony doors wide open and the breeze was amazing! It's in a good location, too. Plenty of restaurants around and, of course, the beach is right there.

This was such a lovely hotel and the views and access to the beach was stunning ... probably one of the best beaches I've been to in Spain. I'd check if you're going in the off season though as to what is open at the resort. I went in November, and the pool was closed, as were all the hotel... More

We were planning a visit to Cadiz earlier this year but thought that a whole week in this very busy city might not be the ideal location for the relaxing break we both needed, so did a little research into the surrounding area. We came up with Rota, and after reading the reviews of the Playa de la Luz on... More

Two years ago, walking along the beach from Rota near Cadiz, we came across Hotel Playa de la Luz and immediately said this is a place we are going to have to stay.
