Hotel Luz Bay
Ranked #9 of 9 Hotels in Luz
Reviewed June 12, 2013

The hotel is clean, good value and welcoming. It doesn't have ultra modern rooms like the adjacent Villa Baia apartments, but if you want hotel service with daily room clean, breakfast and beautiful gardens/pools then go for Luz Bay. The staff at reception, pool bar and breakfast were very nice too. I would stay here again. Its a short walk to the beach. Plenty space to park the car.
It would be good if they could provide free WIFI although it is available for small charge. Same with room safe. I think it would be better to charge an extra 15 euros per room per week and offer these as included in your holiday price.
It would be good for families or there's a separate adult only pool area, which is a great idea too. I honestly couldn't find any fault with this hotel, I should really keep quiet about it so its not fully booked for my next trip!!

Room Tip: We opted for a superior room for more space.

The hotel is well presented and in an excellent location being within five minutes easy walk from the excellent Luz beach with all the facilities offered there.However you could just stay at the hotel and use their pools.
My room on the ground floor was spacious and had an outside seating area.The central heating/air conditioning system was efficient.There was an in room coffee facility with limited supplies but I felt that 10 euros to use it was a bit steep.Breakfast was buffet style and quite good although the coffee nearly blew my head off. I would certainly stay there again

Modern but very nice hotel not far from the beach. Offers big rooms aither on the ground or first floor. It consists of several separate houses which of them having about four rooms or you may call them apartments. Very spacious bedroom together with living room. TV set, air conditioning, desk, chair, fridge, sejf and big wardrobe included. Very clean and tidy. Big bathroom with bath tub and a series of nice smelling cosmetics. You can rest on the terrace just in front of your room (table and chairs available there). If you wish to do some washing there is also a drier available on the terrace. Beautiful flowers and plant on the terrace, two swimming pools just at the hand's reach. Sunbeds for free. The garden in which the houses are situated are very pretty and beautifelly groomed. Restaurant offers breakfasts, dinners, suppers (not included in the price of the apartment). Nice and friendly staff.

Room Tip: All rooms are just perfect:)

This is our 4th visit to this hotel and we absolutely love it. Staff are excellent and accommodating. The lady and chap on reception are very helpful and the restaurant manager is always very welcoming. The breakfasts here are very good with an assortment of cereals, breads, preserves, hams cheeses and a hot buffet section too. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds and our room, a superior tŵin, overlooked the pool, with a sunny aspect throughout the day. Rooms are kept spotlessly clean with daily maid service. Relaxing by the pool and total peace and quiet are what we enjoy when we stay here. We always feel totally chilled out after a week here and it has to be said that this place is the highlight of our holiday calendar. Look forward to returning later in the year.

While it is a little hard to find and was not signposted, we found this hotel in January 2013. The hotel/apartment was lovely, the staff friendly and the breakfast beautiful. Praia da Luz is beautiful, small and relatively unspoilt. It only cost €42.00 for the room for 2 persons including breakfast - great value for money.

We have just returned from a very relaxing 1 week break here. The hotel was immaculate and the hotel staff were great. The main lady on reception was particularly helpful. I can't understand why others have rated this hotel down based on the area being quiet...Luz was quiet but it is to be expected at this time of the year. The hotel was super!

Luz was a great resort, no awful high rise buildings, a selection of very good restaurants and a lovely beach. Perfect for couples who want a chilled time. A few of the restaurants were closed but some very good ones were open.

I would suggest that you hire a car if you fancy an explore around the area....we would do this next time. It's really inexpensive. We pottered around Luz for the week and went on a few walks.

Great hotel and would go there again!
