I spent several nights in this hotel, and I don't regret it at all. I found it very nice the location, the building itself and my room was always serviced and clean, and the breakfast was exactly how expected, really nice and plenty of food. I found this hotel also very secure. There is also a nice little swimming pool... More

The rooms are ok although a bit tired the airco worked fine and the shower could do with some improvement. It is a budjet hotel so you get what you pay... More

The hotel is located slightly out of town center (about 10 min. from the beach) and features a pool, bar and restaurant. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms itself are basic, though the are equipped with TV, airconditioning a safe and a fridge, but for the latter two one has to pay a fair amount (I believe 15 EUR... More

We stayed at the Pousada de Luz over Christmas & New Year, unexpectedly as other accomodation had fallen through. The hotel is a short walk from the beach in a residential part of the town so is reasonably quiet at night. Rooms are basic & a little tired but very clean. There is very little outside space as most is... More
