Everyting was cool! Nice place, clean room, excellent garden with pool. We got a very good price... ;)
There was no toilet brush! :)))))
Staff had a great customer services, and the facility was really comfort and couchy. Ideal for the end of a hard, long day of work.
They had some bugs at the room and the buffet area.
Staff is helpful and efficient and gave us an upgraded room without me asking. The room was comfortable and large. Breakfast was good the staff very nice and helpful.
The balcony was very small.
Beautiful resort on a quite lonely natural beach. We didn't know such beaches even existed in Spain which is infamous for ruining its coasts by mass tourism. We loved it! The pool area is nice too. Room was sunny and spacious with a balcony overlooking the pool. Reception staff are very friendly. We recommend the excellent and inexpensive grilled fish platter at the restaurant.
It's a big hotel which of course has its downsides, like the crowds in the breakfast room. Also the kind of tourists. It's always suspicious when you see signs saying Please don't leave towels to reserve the sun loungers, don't take food away from the buffet... as all that should go without saying. We had a wonderful time off-season, but wouldn't have enjoyed it so much had the place been full. One more thing, having to pay extra for the room safe is a bit ridiculous.
Everything! Buffet dinner and breakfast had varied choices and was excellent. Staff very friendly and efficient. Room small but very clean.
The beach. Good shower and bed linen.
A problem major to us (which to be fair was based on a misunderstanding) was not dealt with at all. The atmosphere was definitely that of a holiday Camp. Didn't suit us at all. Hated it.
Staff Location Facilities
Distance to city centre altough you can rent a bike, take the bus, have a nice walk on the beach
Great staff. Location on the beach was perfect. Pool courtyard was beautiful.
Food at restaurants was very average at best.
The room(s). We had a suite over looking the tennis courts at the rear of the hotel. The cleanliness. Spotless. The Staff. Really friendly and helpful. The location. Right on the beach.
Noise levels (at night), due to hard floors and no sound proofing in rooms. also had a function area outside our room. We stayed out of season, so was relatively quiet apart from a couple of nights, so I would not like to stay in peak season. Bar and restaurant prices. eat locally as it's much cheaper!
Refrigerator smelled bad.
bed uncomfortable, did not sleep well.
Everything was perfect - the staff, the situation, the weather, the facilities - we just loved it all. Manuel was fantastic the night we arrived at 2 in the morning - he even managed to get us a take away which we ate on the balcony of our room. Esmeralda was incredible - she should be working for the UN! Loved it all!!
On arriving the staff were very welcoming. The hotel itself is very nice and kept very well. We had a great pool view, if you don't have a good view it would be disappointing. The pool area is lovely with trees casting shade and the great sized swimming pool. They did activities also like zumba in the water and things for kids. If you don't want to take beach towels the hotel do a towel rental for 5 Euro deposit and you have two hours a day to change it, brilliant service all free. The positioning of the hotel right on the beach was lovely. If you like walking its a 40 minute walk from the hotel into the town along the beach, this was great for us but if you don't like walking much its not so great for you. There is a restaurant on the beach side of the hotel that did very good fresh fish and you can watch the sun set on 180 degree view of the sea...beautiful. Also a cocktail bar above this looking cross the sea and across to the view of cadiz. The staff were all very kind and helpful. the room we had was a comfy and cleaned every day. We are a a couple in our mid 20's and if you like a holiday to chill out and relax its a great place, but if you want to have a bit of a party theres not much going on. If you want a super chilled environment, with lovely staff its a great place to go. We don't have kids but it would be great for a family with a car, and for anyone wanted to shut off and have total relaxation. The beach is just HUGE and sometimes the tide comes right in and theres very little beach, and sometimes its right out and the beach is huge, we liked this it was beautiful. The local town Rota is nice to walk around and its easy to get a boat over to Cadiz for the day. There are also buses that run to Seville etc the reception will tell you all about that.
The restaurant by the pool didn't do the best food. We were pretty disappointed by the quality of that, but if you wanted a quick bite it would keep you going until dinner. Theres a really nice 2nd pool on the roof with a gym, however you have to pay an extra charge to use this space and you can't pay daily only for the whole stay or from day 3 till the end etc. In addition to this you then have to pay an extra charge to sit on the nice beds. So thats a bit disappointing to pay so much then have to pay extra again. The rooms didn't have a kettle. Being British thats a pretty big thumbs down. The food was amazing in the restaurant out by the beach however we did get terrible food poisoning from the prawns on our last night. I'm sure it was an unfortunate isolated event, but it did rather ruin our last 24 hours and make our journey home like hell on earth. Despite this our other meals were amazing, and i would go back! (Just not for the prawns) If you wanted to go to a different restaurant or to a bar on the beach it is a 40 min walk if you don't have a car, luckily we like walking. But there is a really lovely little beach bar we forgot the name but it has a surfer vibe, you won't miss it. If your a foodie, this is probably not the place for you. We found it hard to find food we liked in and around Rota, we're not fussy just maybe spoilt living in London, but we found it hard.
Everything, the pool, the food, the beech and to room
Hotel staff who were knowlegable helpful and friendly plus complimentary bottle of bubbly for my hubbies 50th a lovely surprise
Pool closed at 19.30
Beautiful hotel. Like a botanical garden on the Gulf of Cadiz.
A great place, I would go back immedeately...
you need a car
En joyful stay! Wonderful customer service! An amazing breakfast program! Good rooms, good comfort and very nice beach side infrastructure!
Absolutely everything! We were upgraded to a junior suite which was extremely spacious and comfortable! The staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic, beautifully presented and delicious. Smiles and laughter everywhere. Can´t wait to go again!
Rota is not an easy place to find by car. The same is true when leaving the town. We found that the drinks in the hotel bar sherry were vastly over priced.
Playa de la Luz is an exquisite hotel that has all the luxuaries for anyone vacationing. The grounds are beautiful and the service was awesome.
there is nothing I did not like, even the evening meal buffet was great. a special mention belongs to the staff which contributes a big part to the enchantment of the hotel
the cleaning staff was a bit persistent but that made me leave for the beach early
staff helpful; extra sofa and sitting area; beach chairs were nice to be able to use
Beds were soft. Food in buffet warm not hot. Beach not very swimmable and very windy. A long long walk to center of town for restaurants, etc.
The fact I had to stay only 1 night
Charge for beds in front on terrace.in the middle of nowhere so stuck in hotel unless you took a taxi into rota for rubbish food.we were under the understanding we had booked a superior room through yourselves and when we arrived we were allocated a twin room which was inadequate for my disabled wife.we paid extra to upgrade to a tired superior room.we got back to our room to find the card key was not unlocking the door.i went back to reception and they gave me another key which also did not work.3 times later they sent a repair man who told us the battery neede changing and he would be back tomorrow.at approx 9.30 am I returned to reception to explain we could not rest and furthermore we could not go to breakfast as we could not lock the door with our valuables inside.i asked to see the manager to complain only to be told he wasn't present.needless to say we paid for 1night and returned home with our looked forward to,30 anniversary ruined.i would also like to add that we certainly will not be entertaining your company in the future.we are so disappointed with the whole fiasco ruining a well planned and looked forward to special occasion.
