This was a really great place to stay, the wife and kids loved it and so did I. Very authentic Mexico, excellent service...great memories. I particularly liked having breakfast in the back porch / patio. Overall very clean, warm and genuinely welcoming.

We should have posted last year but after making reservations this year and reading the Oct 24,2012 posting we can’t resist but tell how it really is! Paco is the most friendly and helpful owner of a bed and breakfast we’ve run across, and we’ve been to many throughout the USA. He always has a smile and friendly advice as...

First off, the rooms are very nice and very New Mexican and clean. However this is not worth much when you have an owner that does little to make you welcomed and has an attitude. We first came to the front door which had a phone next to it to call the owner who lives right next door. We waited...

We stayed in the last room available, on the 3rd floor with winding staircase that took us to a Lilliputian-sized but cute room. The owners reside on premise, and Paco, the owner, was friendly . This is not a place to go if you want luxury, but it is artistically (if funkily) decorated. Breakfast included was quite ordinary.

Thank you for staying with us. After staying in our budget room, I wish you had seen some of the higher rate rooms before suggesting the whole place was less than luxurious. The art, artifacts, amenities, quality linens and the best location in town represent a wonderful value and a real Taos experience. Your little room has a wonderful collection...

Wonderful getaway from Denver, we stayed in La Madonna it was really clean and cozy. It is only a block away from the plaza so at night you can just walk to bars/restaurants. Every morning we ate an amazing breakfast made by Elena our host. Elena and Paco (owner) were very nice, they told us all about the place and...

We've been remiss of writing a review. We stayed at La Dona Luz from August 23 - 27 and had a wonderful stay. We stayed in the Yellow Bird Suite and it was fabulous. The doors opening to the enclosed patio area made it even more special as we could easily go out onto the patio and enjoy a bite...

My husband and I stayed here when we wanted a quick get-away from the Santa Fe area. We walked in without reservations in the afternoon, and took a beautiful, ample downstairs room. The price was reasonable, the location was perfect, the room was quiet, the owner, Paco, was friendly and accommodating. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and...

We recently spent three nights at La Dona Luz Inn and couldn’t have been more pleased with the affordable accommodations in the heart of Taos. Paco (the owner and our host) and his staff were pleasant & very helpful with suggestions to make our stay even more enjoyable. With this charming European style B&B just minutes to Taos Plaza, just...

Only had one night in Taos and could have done more. B&B was great. 2 rooms made a family stay pleasent. Kids loved the outside cat. Easy walk to Taos Square. Well decorated rooms. Nice breakfast on outdoor patio.

My friend and I thought celebrating our birthday in Taos was the highlight but how wrong we were! We happened upon this B&B on the internet by accident and now find ourselves forever charmed. La Dona Luz is an amazing home with so many touching details, comforts, pleasures etc.but the real treasure is the family on site. Paco, the owner,...
