We initially used this hotel to see other cities such as Cadiz,Jerez, Seville and Gibraltar. The accommodations at this hotel were so nice that we actually took one day out of our vacation just to enjoy the hotel. The staff were wonderful. We did feel like stupid Americans when we couldn't figure out how to turn on the lights in...

We very much enjoyed our stay in Hotel Playa de la Luz. Its key differentiator is the friendliness of the staff at all levels and in every function. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide choice of food, the same applies to the dinner buffet in the Las Dunas restaurant. And a very tasty vino blanco de la casa...

Even though the hotel cannot hide its age, it is well kept. Its special style fits well into the surroundings of low-rise buildings at the seaside. It's an excellent place if you want to relax or take the opportunity of walking in the sand. Travelling by public transportation is possible, but you are better off, if you rent a car...

Gone back to the Hotel Playa de Luz for 7 years now, like meeting up with an old friend! Every year something changes, this year the addition of a Beach club has added value. This hotel is best seen out of season when if the weather 'plays ball' the Atlantic Ocean is your garden and the relative peace and tranquility...

The hotel Playa del La Luz is directly located at the Beach of Rota. Even though the hotel is located on the outer end of the town, shopping facilities like supermarkets are nearby and a walk "downtown" does not take more then 15 minutes without any rush. The rooms ar perfectly clean, offer comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Free internet...

A very nice hotel. Clean room, friendly staff and very good food. The beautiful beach of Rota is just in front of the hotel.

Stayed here 2 nights, high season (end of July). Was very afraid of number of guests and noise made by children -- and ... nothing! It was simply great! I used GPS to get there and it was confusing - they've changed Avenida de la Diputacion to be a one-way road which GPS didn't know. Simply follow signs to hotel...

This is the fourth time I have stayed at this hotel and it never lets me down. The hotel is very clean throughout, staff extremely helpful and friendly. Probably need a car to get around but being used to this it is not a problem. Rooms are spotless and adequate. Who stays in their room all day!!! The hotel is...

OK, keep in mind this is not a 5-star hotel. However for what you are paying for, you cannot do better for the location. A beautiful beach, two swimming pools, a nice bar, rooms are small, but who would want to spend all day in one of those rooms when you have this pool and beach to hang out in....
