The location was excellent and very quiet and secluded. Only a 5 min walk from the beach and we found a smaller supermarket which closer than the spar, opposite Yolo restaurant on Rua Da Praia. We liked the set up of the hotel with the Morish village feel and not like a high rise hotel. Not essential to hire a... More

The Luz Bay Hotel is in a quiet location about a 5 minute walk to the beach and 15 minutes walk to the nearest supermarket. Our room was pleasant enough but you did have to pay extra for the safe deposit.also no English channels on the satellite television. Th cleaning standards were high and the beds were comfortable. a nice... More

One thing we are not going to do is a negative review on Hotel Luz Bay. NO it is not 4 star. 3 at the moment. It needs a few Euros spending on the place but what it has is a faded charm, great breakfasts ( so long as you get there early) . Good size rooms ( some of... More

Friendly staff, beautiful garden, not far to walk to the beach but a little bit tricky if you have mobility situation as my husband found out. Our room was on top floor with magnificent view of the area Rm. 203. We spent most of our time at the hotel, now and again walked to the beach but quite happy sitting... More

Our second time here as a family and we stayed in a superior room on the ground floor. Found the staff most pleasant, reception were really attentive and willing to please, cleaner came everyday to change towels (def not threadbare) and tidy up and there was always a gardener around tidying up the beautiful mature garden. The pool beds and... More

Not 4 star. Torn towels broken toilet, rooms not cleaned. Staff on reception reluctant. Food very poor for 4star. Pool dirt at the bottom and used cans and plastic tumblers, knives and forks not cleared away by staff. Staff seemed under pressure as there was a severe lack of staff. Paid for half board only ate boiled eggs and fruit... More

When i read the reviews on here I was a little concerned about the two week holiday I had booked.Orange juice a bit weak and threadbare towels along with uncomfortable beds looked a real downer. Well I drank tropical juice, called the towels invigorating and the beds were perfect for my weak back In other words I looked on the... More

The male reception staff were not very friendly or welcoming. The quality of the food was very poor although the waiters were friendly and did an excellent job. The room was clean but basic. There were a lot of package holiday guests (which is probably where the good reviews are coming from). All in all, not a very pleasant stay.
