Laid-back Las Gaviotas is ideally placed, just minutes from bars, restaurants, and the beach. It's a pretty place, too - bright white bungalows ring the pool, and show off sunny Canarian décor like yellow walls and pine furniture. A buffet restaurant is on hand, too.
This place has clinched a great location. For starters, it’s only a matter of minutes from the beach – a ribbon of soft volcanic sand peppered with sunloungers. Plus, it’s close to a seafront promenade that runs all the way to Puerto Del Carmen in the south, and Arrecife in the north. It means you’re in a really central spot if you want to head out.
The complex itself is made up of a collection of whitewashed bungalows which are grouped into blocks and are all close to each other. Inside the bungalows, things are simple and homely. Think neutral walls, oak furniture and pretty floral fabrics. There’s plenty of space, with separate lounge areas and bedrooms. And they come with fully loaded kitchenettes, so you can make snacks and meals whenever you want.
When you don’t fancy cooking, though, just head to the buffet restaurant. Cooked breakfasts are the mainstay in the morning, and you can get a choice of eggs every day. At dinner, the menu includes classics like steak and chips, as well as local favourites like seafood dishes and paella. Plus, because this place is less than a five-minute walk from bars and restaurants, you’ve got plenty more dining options close by.
1-bedroom apartment sleeps up to 3 adults and 1 child up to 12 years or 2 adults and 2 children up to 12 years with an extra camp-bed. Apartment is situated in a separate block to the main facilities and have a fan, kitchenette with vitro ceramic hob, microwave, toaster and kettle and a lounge. There's maid service 3 times a week, towels changed twice and linen once a week, including arrival day.

Great bungalows,superb staff :-)
We have just returned from a weeks stay at the gaviatos and we we were very pleased with everything. The room was lovely and clean, aircon was great, it was cleaned regular.
The food was great. after reading other reviews we expected to eat out a few times but that was not the case, there was a different variety of food each lunch and dinner and was always hot and cooked well! And the restaurant was always clean and cool.
The staff are amazing, especially in the restaurant, they work so hard, nothing was too much trouble and they were great with our 2 young girls.
Each set of bungalows has they're own pool but as we were staying in block 8 and that pool didn't have a childrens area we used the one by the restaurant on a daily basis which was only a short distance away, the pools have glass barriers around them which we found brilliant and a great idea!
Being in block 8 meant we were by the shopping centre which was great for popping to to get essentials.
Matagorda is a lovely place and very peaceful with lovely beaches, also fab as it's only a very short transfer from airport.
We can't wait to return and would recommend this to anyone :-)More
An Excellent Holiday Resort
Stayed here in October for 2 weeks in Block 7 Green Bay Bungalows the accommodation was excellent the bungalow was clean with kitchen bathroom & shower, TV and bedroom (separate from living quarters) with a separate drying area for laundry at rear of bungalow. A patio which has the sun from about 10.00 until about 6.00. Bedding was changed 3 times a week and cleaned every other day only downside there was no air conditioning. There is a swimming pool at the bottom of the block. You also have use of any swimming pool on the complex and there is a large restaurant on Block 3 which is for all guests at Las Gaviotas. The bungalow was situated about a 5 minute walk to the shopping centre and beach where there are plenty of restaurants and bars for your choice of meals and drinks.
You are only 2miles from Puerto Del Carmen which is only 4 Euros in a Taxi where there is plenty to do.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful this resort is only 3 star but well worth staying at
If you want a quiet holiday this is the place for you.More

Spent 10 days here for our summer holidays. Lovely views of the sea from our bungalow in block 3. Nice pool area kept tidy and glass screens surrounding the pool for child safety. These were the luxury bungalows. They were spacious with a little drying area behind each one and a well equipped kitchen. The restaurants beside these apartments are brilliant. The only downside we had were the beds were a bit hard. Otherwise a great time was had here.More

We'll be back
Close to airport, off the plane in a room and at a bar within an hour of landing :). Clean and comfortable accommodation, better suited to couples with reasonable expectations. Quieter area of Lanzarote. You'll need to grab a short taxi ride to puerto Del Carmen for clubs, but for more relaxed atmosphere Matagorda is perfect. San Marcial (family) restaurant, Jazz Bistro (couples) and Spirit Surf (casual cool, pizza) in cc Matagorda are the best places to eat .More
