    Off to a good start booked 3 more nights

    Very accommodating staff at reception. Monica at the beach grill was also excellent as was the food.

    It was an overnight stay but the room was warm and there is a deep tub for a good warm bath.

    Hotel is a bit antique and out of date. Old chairs and tables in the room, old bathroom etc...

    Great Rota Hotel

    Playa De La Luz is a great place to stay in Rota. This was our second time in the last year (trip was for business). The hotel restaurants are nice options and there are two within walking distance in town that are also great. One item to note however- they are currently doing renovations on their buildings so you may experience some noise during the day.

    Off season bargain

    Received room upgrade upon arrival. Room large, included both shower and tub. Moderate sized balcony, very comfortable room. Was moved to another room when original developed water leak due to renovations on floor above. New room was even better, large balcony, lots of space in the room itself. Above the restaurant with pool and ocean view. Excellent

    Everything was great. We were upgraded next to the beach just like I asked, except the thermostat in our room was broken and it got a little cold that night. Otherwise it would have been a perfect experience. Overall would stay again.

    Quiet room, but a dated resort

    Stayed here for one night looking for a comfy bed a bit of food, shower and WiFi. Check in was ok - they had a red and a white sherry in a complementary bucket outside reception. Would have been a much better experience for the reception folks to offer the drink to guests?! The white sherry turned out to be pretty horrid, I don't understand how even that drink's creator could possibly love it, maybe that's why they were awkward. Sunset was pretty on their outside deck. Rooms were a bit dated. It was nice to have two twin+ sized beds pushed together to make a bigger-than-king bed, but the mattresses and pillows didn't lead to the best sleep. The Gaviota bar offered some interesting tapas, we got the Artichoke and a plate of 'old Manchego'. Unfortunately the Manchego seemed like it had been left out all day or was just pieces from the rind. I'm not a Manchego connoisseur, but my significant other is, we were partly in Spain for a cheese tour. It was very disappointing to get that plate - she didn't even eat it after the first couple of bites. I asked the waitress if they had a plate that was freshly cut from the block, or just the block itself... Nothing. That was disappointing customer service. Bathtub did the trick, and the WiFi worked well enough. I went for a swim in the morning, beach is ok, water was not clear, but nice temps. Shower heads calcified. Decent price, but didn't delight, a bit overrated.

    I informed the property my military flight was cancelled 1 week prior to check in and they still charged me for my reservation, no consideration. I selected this property because it is frequently used by active and retired military .

    We stayed at La Playa over 20 years ago, so we expected to find the location "charming" and gently aged. Instead we found the property to have undergone upgrades and renovations, far exceeding our expectations! Fabulous breakfast buffet, clean pool, gorgeous beach access, amazingly friendly staff.
