“Grat Hotel”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

First time to Luar after reading other reviews.Found the location good and a stones throw from the beach down steps. Rooms adequate all be it a little dated. Great to have a fridge in the room and an efficient air conditioning system.Pool bar excellent for lunchtime snacks and drinks.Amazing swimming pool which is one of the biggest I have seen on holiday. Staff all very helpful and courteous . Not very far from restaurants and shops easy walking distance on level.
Would recommend and will use again

Would probably give this hotel a 3.5, 3 for the hotel and 4 for the location. Hotel was fine overall, breakfast was ok, rooms a bit outdated but ok. The staff were helpful and reception were eager to help - they let me check in a few hours advance of check in time which was one of the reasons I selected this hotel. Pool was lovely and snack bar at pool had a good selection. Location was excellent - just down a LOT of steps to the quiet end of the beach which was lovely. I would recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed for ten nights in june 2014, while the hotel itself was good the staff left a lot to be desired, particularly the bar staff and some of the reception staff. Were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary (the hotel staff did not know this) we got a room with two single beds. When I asked about various tours or sight seeing trips I was told to get a brochure.Iwill not be recomending this hotel to anyone visiting the Algarve and asked my travel agent not to either. We left the Algarve very dissapointed

Hotel luar is in an excellent location, it's on the doorstep to the beach and minutes away from the praia da rocha strip. The hotel staff are very friendly n helpful, the hotel is kept clean and tidy however in need of some updating. I would recommend this hotel.

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.
