This is a very modern hotel.... if it would still be 1980! I guess nothing was upgaded or updated ever since. Having said that, everything is still in good condition and clean. Rooms are cleaned every day. The beds are a bit hard yes, but ok to sleep on, but I guess that differs per person. The batroom has a... More

Well located close to beautiful beach and also bars and restaurants yet far enough away to be quiet. Rooms quite a bit jaded though well kept and hotel is spotless throughout. Breakfast is ok but the addition of some fresh fruit and yoghurts would make a big difference to the simple but good fare. The pool area is great and... More

Would probably give this hotel a 3.5, 3 for the hotel and 4 for the location. Hotel was fine overall, breakfast was ok, rooms a bit outdated but ok. The staff were helpful and reception were eager to help - they let me check in a few hours advance of check in time which was one of the reasons I... More

My wife and I stayed for ten nights in june 2014, while the hotel itself was good the staff left a lot to be desired, particularly the bar staff and some of the reception staff. Were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary (the hotel staff did not know this) we got a room with two single beds. When I asked about... More

Hotel luar is in an excellent location, it's on the doorstep to the beach and minutes away from the praia da rocha strip. The hotel staff are very friendly n helpful, the hotel is kept clean and tidy however in need of some updating. I would recommend this hotel.

Visited Hotel Luar with my boyfriend for a week. Very clean hotel, maids came every morning. One of the best, cleanest pools we have ever been to, with a pool bar! We paid £20 extra for a sea view. Was definitely worth the money but it was a shame the sun never really reached our balcony (room 508). Breakfast very... More

For the first time ever, we have stayed at the same hotel two years running and it was just as nice as the first time. The only thing that was not as nice, but still lovely, was our apartment position, this time we were in 218 and our balcony looked over the pool, ocean and all other lower inner balconies,... More
