I've just spent a long weekend (4 nights) by myself at the Hotel Luar for just over £100 B&B. What did I get for that? Well for a start, I had a 5th floor room with a fantastic view over the superb beach and west towards Vau & Alvor with a fantastic sunset every evening. Add to that, the room was cleaned and the bed was made every day and there was a compact fridge big enough for a couple of bottles of Superbock! Buffet style 'eat as much as you like' breakfast was great - cereals, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, brioche, croissants, rustic breads & rolls, jam, cheese, salami as well as a variety of fruit juices, teas, infusions & coffees. I've read the odd review criticising the breakfast and I just don't get it. If I was being picky, a few yoghurts and a bit of fruit wouldn't go amiss but I was never hungry until lunchtime. All the staff I encountered were polite, helpful and pleasant. All this for £104? Absolute bargain and would have no hesitation whatsoever spending another £104 to stay at the Luar again.
As others have pointed out, the location of the Luar is one of its big pluses. Right outside is a stairway down to the great beach. There are many spectacular beaches along the Algarve coast and this one is no exception. The hotel is also conveniently located at the quiet end of a sea-view strip of dozens of restaurants & cafes with the occasional mini-mart for good measure. Great for an evening stroll.
Didn't have any issues with the bed or the pillows and, frankly, couldn't care less if the style of the table or curtains or carpet was a bit dated.
Thank you, Luar, until next time.
