First of all I have to admit- after being in The Palladium Royal Suites in Yucatan - it is really difficult to compare other Hotels as this was really perfect for me 😍😍🍀💫 Nevertheless this hotel is really quite nice. The area is really good, the people working here are really nice and the food is a little bit expensive...

Good hotel but standard rooms are very small. Location of the hotel is very good. 3km from the centre. In april a lot of facilities are still closed. I would go back, but not as couple, with friends who wants to ride the bike every day like we did, the hotel is very good.

Dear Client, Thank you for your comments. From now on, our restaurant La Gaviota, on the beach, is already open. We have prepared new instalations for people who like to ride with the bike, it is a very good combination, relax, sun and bike tours. Thank you and we hope to welcome you back soon, Best regards, Sophie

After pool, nice beach and buffet food? Perfect for you. Great for families. After an intimate setting with close by choices for food or night life? not your place. Everything was fine for us though the buffet was expensive and cool when it should have been warm. Great place to explore Cadiz from (foot passenger ferry). Rooms nice, clean, plumbing...

Rooms are okay, but if you are here for work and use use the internet with or without a VPN don't stay here. Dial-up would be better than the wi-fi here. Too bad because the hotel has a beautiful beachfront location.

I am staying at Hotel Playa de la Luz right now. It is midnight. There is so much noise, swearing, yelling, and drunken reveling right outside my door and echoing through the entire courtyard that I can't even think about getting to sleep. Four hours ago, I went to the front reception desk and told them that I could see...

My partner and I spent the first ten days of September in this delightful hotel. The stay was very much made for us by the lovely room we had - No. 58, first floor with wonderful panoramic sea view and very quiet. The food was well prepared, fresh and quickly replenished. The gardens around the pool had a lot of...

Agree with previous reviewers: the hotel trades on its setting right on the beach. We arrived on 3rd September, a treat to ourself for our wedding anniversary. Not a good start, reception staff said they had no record of our booking and a very rude receptionist who kept waving paper in our face saying we had cancelled. Explained that we...

This hotel is almost perfect, the swimming pool is quite beautiful, the beach too, the food is delicious and varied but, the only bad thing is that the Internet connection is very bad and slow.

Very nice hotel in Andalusian style with a beautiful garden. We stayed here for two weeks in a junior suite and enjoyed our stay very much.
