Good 6.0
Breakfast spread was really scanty. On my last morning we literally only had bread, egg, cheese. No bacon, no sausages, no cereal, no fresh juice, no yoghurt I couldn’t sit in my ground floor room balcony because water from the AC units in the top rooms was channeled to my balcony. Disgusting.

Lovely stay! Clean, modern, beautiful hotel. Lovely location, close to the beach and some great restaurants but out the way enough that you feel like one of the locals. Really happy friendly staff, from reception, kitchen to house keeping. Everyone says good morning and couldn’t help you enough! Towels were provided everyday, aircon worked beautifully, shower was lovely, beds really comfy. I can’t fault our stay if I tried. And I would definitely consider staying again!

Exceptional 10.0
I stayed at Hotel Da Luz for a week, the hotel has been recemtly refurbished to a high standard, my room was clean and kept clean throughout the week. The staff were attentive and helpful, ordering me taxis when needed and answering my questions. Breakfast was a fairly standard continental one but for the cheap price i paid for they stay was better than expected. Angulo beach bar is just a few minutes away where you can hire paddle boards and windsurfers etc, swim or just chill at the bar. I would recommend this hotel, very good value for money and would definately stay there again.

Exceptional 10.0
The hotel manager (I think) was very accommodating for us as a family with a toddler - welcoming, helpful and flexible. The hotel staff in general were polite and friendly, though some reception staff could perhaps be a little more helpful with information (directions, local recommendations, taxi information). No specific issues though, we generally had a very pleasant stay. Although there were still some snagging issues from recent renovations these would be expected from any renovation works and staff were very quick to resolve issues so I have no complaints at all. The hotel facilities were very good and various spaces welcoming, clean and relaxing - pool, lobby, dining room, etc. I'd highly recommend this hotel, and I hope we return!

Fair 4.0
Un personnel agréable et serviable mais qui manque cruellement d’anticipation dans le service client. Il faut en permanence demander la moindre chose. Établissement propre et bien entretenu mais qui a de sérieux problèmes de canalisation et de plomberie (odeurs, fuites...). Un gros point noir le petit déjeuner qui est resté invariablement le même pendant une semaine. Une piscine en maintenance toute la semaine et qui n’est pas prête d’être utilisée. C’est dommage que tant de petits détails font que cet établissement qui est correct et qui ne fait usine comme le reste des hôtels de l’île soit si mal tenu.
