Hotel Luar
Ranked #12 of 20 Hotels in Praia da Rocha
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Visited Hotel Luar with my boyfriend for a week. Very clean hotel, maids came every morning. One of the best, cleanest pools we have ever been to, with a pool bar! We paid £20 extra for a sea view. Was definitely worth the money but it was a shame the sun never really reached our balcony (room 508). Breakfast very average, cereal/toast/eggs and bacon/cheese/hams. Amazing location, a minutes walk to the best part of the beach.. definitely worth a walk to the other end of the beach where there are beach activities and a blow up play area in the sea. Lively strip with endless restaurants and bars to choose from. Got the train to Lagos for the day (only 2 euros) which is definitely worth a visit. Many boat trips are done from here. The Dolphin trip we went on is definitely worth a visit (25euros each - days of adventure) Would happily go back to Hotel Luar!

Hotel Luar is a good clean hotel in a great location, rooms are a bit tired looking but are very clean with a small mini bar that is stocked daily. The pool area is lovely with pleanty of sunbeds free at all times of the day. Lovely big reception area, free wifi in bar and reception.

Location is 2 mins walk to strip to bars/restaurants but still set far enough away so that you don't have any nighttime noise in hotel. Staff are very helpful, I even left an electronic device at hotel & they posted on to me right away.

For the first time ever, we have stayed at the same hotel two years running and it was just as nice as the first time. The only thing that was not as nice, but still lovely, was our apartment position, this time we were in 218 and our balcony looked over the pool, ocean and all other lower inner balconies, which meant we were overlooked by others too..but, saying that, we only had to come out of our door and we had the large communal balcony, which was lovely..

The breakfast was the same as last year, help yourself, so it is up to you if you want to vary it a bit..nothing special but nothing bad about it either.

The pool was just as lovely as we remembered, and there were always plenty of sunloungers to go around.

Location lovely,easy walking distant to all shops and bars and food joints but the steps down to beach are ok really, but take your time walking up , they can be knackering.

Overall, the hotel Luar is very good value for money.

Excellent value. Spacious rooms. Very clean and though a little dated did not detract from the overall feel of the hotel. Very helpful with my ironing problem and snack bar staff by the pool were lovely! No loud music or games - fab. Perfect for the beach and excellent restaurants within two minutes walk. Do not be put off by the €8.90 for three courses. Delicious and well presented. Went with a mate for a few days away - Wednesday to Sunday - and was perfect. Will definitely return.

We found the Hotel Luar, extremley good value, it was spotless, cleaned throughout everyday, the pool area was great, plenty of sunbeds, snack bar and staff very good, we had a lovely seaview from our balcony, room was dated but ok, firm bed, fridge, tv and air conditoning which we needed, close to the bars, restaurants and shops, breakfast was ok, bacon, scrambled eggs, cereals. breads, meats, plenty to choose from, (but not full English) but it suited us.

We will definately return, weather was good and Prai De Rocha beaches and views are first class

Room Tip: Ask for side sea view (304) great views and a cool balcony in the afternoon which we needed.

Stayed last year September, first time in Praia and in the hotel. We got a really good deal (2 sisters sharing). This hotel is exactly what we were looking for it was clean and tidy the pool was lovely and the location was great - easy walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Free wifi in the lobby was a great bonus also. While I was there I had to print off an e mail sign something and get it scanned and e mailed back to me. I asked the reception staff if they wouldn't mind doing so for me and they couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast isn't that great (no fruit!) but its acceptable. We treated ourselves to Taffy's (great restaurant down the street) breakfast on a couple of occasions as a treat! The only one other negative thing about the hotel was the small tv in the room with very few channels but SHAME ON ME for watching tv on holidays anyway. Would defo recommend this hotel. My sister has already returned twice and I'm Returning again this year.

I stayed here with my mum in May. It was my second time to stay at Hotel Luar and I was not dissapointed. The hotel is spotless, rooms cleaned every day and fresh towels every day too. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The breakfast is really nice, scrablled eggs and bacon with lots of bread and rolls to choose from. The pool is beautiful with well maintained gardens to the side. Lots of sunbeds and sidetables and unbrellas for shade. It is lit up in the evening and is looks beautiful. The hotel is right next to a lovely itaillian called Bulle & Pupe and lots of stalls selling bags, shoes and jewellry. We booked a side sea view room (503) and it had an extra large balcony over looking the sea and the pool area. Already looking forward to goung again next year

Room Tip: Ask for side sea view.
