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....

We had a great family time here during our fall holiday. The hotel was not overcrowded and had a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff was friendly and attentive and we had no problem to find someone speaking english. The rooms (marble floors and marble bathrooms) were ultraclean as was the wole compound. The location at the mile-long beach between a...

We returned to this hotel after several years - the main reason being it's location right next to the excellent long and sandy beach in Rota. The pool area and grounds are very attractive too, and contrary to other reviews - the pool is really quite big. For lovers of Belgian beer - they sell Duvel, Chimay and Judas at...

We actually were booked in for 10 nights, but when we arrived we wanted to leave straight away. I have no idea how this was ever rated a 4 star hotel, this is a 2 star at most. The rooms are small, outdated, noisy, overpriced and the hotel is overrun by children. We paid almost 200Euro per night, and were...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel recently for five days (the minimum allowed by the hotel during the high season, or so they stated). While we had mixed opinions, overall our stay was pretty good. One highlight was the food - the buffets are tremendous and the Atlantico restaurant was also top notch. We thought the food was...

I spent five nights in Rota in mid July 2008. La Playa de La Luz is in a lovely location with a good pool and children's pool. A good Atlantic beach is on the doorstep. I was, unfortunately, there on a business trip. This is not the place for a quiet relaxing get away and not conducive to sleeping for...
