Laid-back Las Gaviotas is ideally placed, just minutes from bars, restaurants, and the beach. It's a pretty place, too - with bright white bungalows ringing the pool. 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.

What a lovely place to stay. Quiet, rented a car virtually next door and easy walk to restaurants and shops. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Cleaning of the bungalow was also good. Bungalow well equipped, can have wifi if pay small charge. Otherwise free in one area which was quite a long way from us. Would visit againMore

Visit Lanzarote quite a lot, mainly Matagorda, and I have recently always been choosing here to stay. Never had a bad stay and everything that you need is in these apartments. Have made friends in the local shopping area in the bars, especially The Sportsman, cracking owners and a cracking wee pub. Minutes walk to the beach and only around 5euro in a taxi to go up the strip. Would and will say at Las Gaviotas again.More

Short winter break
We went there for a week in November. The Gaviotas in Matagorda (Lanzarote) is a very quiet place with a beautiful beach. Although we had a marvellous time, the weather was horrible. The bungalow nr. 8 in block 8 was very clean and cosy. Nice living room, fully equipped kitchen, spacy bathroom, cosy bedroom with drawer, terrace with furniture (even long chairs), big and small pool, not far from groceries and shopping centre. 5 km from lively Puerto del Carmen along the sea or along the inviting promenade with bars, restaurants, shops...It would get a ten if the water had not enter the house, even with the hurricane we experienced... Tip : may be have a look at it. We surely will go there again but at another time. Guido and MarlÃ¨ne, Gent, BelgiumMore
Fantastic bungalows with superb location...
I have stayed in Matagorda, near Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote many times but this was my first time staying at the Las Gaviotas Bungalows and they did not disappoint! They have excellent, first rate accommodation and are well equipped with everything you would need and are well maintained both inside and out and spotlessly clean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and assist you quickly and efficiently. The Las Gaviotas Bungalows are only a few minutes drives from the Airport by taxi or hire drive and parking is easily found outside the reception area. There is also an excellent bus service from the Airport too. I would highly recommend staying atMore
