Rooms very basic but ok for a cheap holiday , did not eat here as self catered, so went into town, Praia da Rocha is like Rhyl in wales needing a complete overall, beaches were nice but no good if you have any walking difficulties . We stayed here for 7 days September 2012 to go to the WSB TOUR... More

I stayed here for 11 nights and June and had an enjoyable stay. As others have mentioned you do get what you pay for, but for a cheap holiday in the sun it is ideal. Staff were friendly and attentive and I was even able to check in straight away, even though I arrived a few hours early. The hotel... More

Just returned home on Sunday from a week staying at the Luar Hotel with a friend. The best bit about this hotel is, without doubt, it's fantastic location. It's only a two min walk from the strip (close but not too close!!) and only a set of steps away from the beach. We went just off-season and so it was... More

My partner & I wanted a 'budget, just us' holiday, which is never really that during the August school holidays, but having been skiing in April with the kids didn't want to overdo the budget. For a 3* hotel, it was great. Couldn't fault the cleanliness, reception were extremely helpful when asking about buses etc, and also very efficient in... More

Me and my boyfriend (late 20's early 30's) stayed at the Hotel Luar in July, it was brilliant. I am particularly fussy about cleanliness but the hotel was spotless. The pool is amazing and the bar has a huge variety of drinks, for the price this hotel is a little gem. It is situated in an ideal spot, you can... More
