This is a small family run hotel, located on a hill walkable into Luz town with great restaurants. The rooms are large and clean. Staff friendly and cheap bar. Booked again for next summer with friends.

Having looked forward to our honeymoon in Luz we we're very disappointed by the twin rooms we were allocated even though they had been notified earlier. The hotel itself is up on the hill and yes it is easy to walk down into Luz itself but it's tiring walking back up in the heat. The rooms we had was spacious... More

We arrived at 00:45 very concerned as it looked like the hotel was boarded up and for sale...3 boards outside, dead plants, rubbish everywhere and filthy canopies. It was open but perhaps that was a shame! The boy on the reception with his head in his laptop barely raised his head to greet us handed us the key and directed... More

My husband & I stayed at Vilamar for 7 nights. My first impression on arrival was 'have we made a mistake!'. The canopy outside advertising the hotel was very dirty and on entering the reception we found it to be dark and uncared for with dead plant leaves on the floor which were still there the day we left. However,... More

Average hotel for a reasonable price, the staff were helpful enough and friendly, unfortunately the manager/ owner had his family staying from Germany so being such a small hotel it made it feel a little like you were intruding on a family event, The rooms are large and reasonably furnished, the hotel is clean and basic although maybe a coat...

Just spent a week here with the family, just the ticket for a quiet holiday. The accommodation is more than adequate with daily cleaning and fresh towels every other day. The amenities are good with plenty of room around the pool, snack food available throughout the day and the staff are friendly and helpful. You don't pay for an inexpensive... More

We arrived at midnight, reception was attended by a very pleasant young man who showed us to our room, he explained the essentials and left us to it! We awoke the next morning looking out over the pool and patio area, with views over the sea. A typical Portugese breakfast is served in the bar area and outside on the... More
