Laid-back Las Gaviotas is ideally placed, a couple of minutes’ walk from a chilled seafront promenade and beach.
This place has clinched a great location. For starters, it’s a matter of minutes from the beach. Plus, it’s close to the waterside promenade, which leads to Matagorda and, further along, the buzzing town of Puerto del Carmen.
It’s a pretty place with bright white bungalows ringing the pool. Inside, it’s all neutral walls and white furnishings, creating a light and airy feel. They come well-equipped if you decide to cook, with an open-plan kitchenette and garden terrace, complete with table and chairs for some al fresco dining.

We stayed in block 6, it was a bit of a walk from the reception but we didn't mind that as we were taken to our block by the hotel's mini bus. The apartment was a one bedroom apartment and catered for a needs, it was clean with fresh towels and bedding. The daily maid service was excellent and the block and pool was keep tidy and well maintained. Sunbeds were also provided as well as a table and chairs to sit outside on the terrace. The reception were very polite and helpful and was only a call away by using the apartment's telephone. The resort itself was quiet but if you fancied something more lively a taxi trip into Puerto Del Carmen will meet your expectations. More
Good base, stayed in superior room, but would only class as good.Did get early entry into our room, which was appreciated.Never used any hotel facility except pool. . Cleaning could have been better. Plenty restaurants nearby or you can walk into Puerto del Carmen or ArrecifeMore

my stay at the gaviotas
i temember this being a great little self catering holiday i cant remember the block we were in but we got placed right next to the heated pool and pool bar that did lovely meals the bungalows are basic but that didnt bother me as it was only our base it was clean and tidy and had all the facilities you would need for a self catering holidayMore
Good basic accommodation
Just returned from 2week bed and breakfast at these apartments. Quite good location we were in block 7 which was quite a way from the restaurant and reception which didn't bother us but I think if you were all inclusive it would be a bind. The rooms were basic and you had to pay 10 euro deposit for tv remote which seemed a bit strange! Wi fi was 18 euro for a week and you could pay daily. Our towels were only changed twice in the first week and not at all in the second week. Our block was very quiet hardly saw anyone really, which suited us, we like peace and quiet. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice and staff worked very hard. On last day we had to leave room at 12 noon and we weren't getting picked up until 7.15 pm, there was no shower room available and no toilets round our pool so we had to trek down to reception to the toilet and get changed in there,not ideal, didn't want to shower round pool and couldn't wash hair as no facilities to dry it !! All in all we enjoyed our stay as we didn't need much, we went out every night either to Matagorda or Puerto del Carmen, loads of places to eat and plenty of places to see. Would recommend hiring bikes and also walking to playa de Calero.More
We visited at the end of August as a large group with a mixture of age ranges. We were recommended this resort by the travel agent and we were aware that there was no evening entertainment. On arriving, we entered a very small reception area but clean and tidy. There were a few problems checking in. My brother and his family had been split over 2 apartments as his daughters (14 & 12) were classed as adults so therefor put in their own apartment. Obviously we were not happy with this so we were instructed to go back the next day to move them into a 2 bed apartment. I had been placed in a 2 bed apartment in block 1 so we made our way to the apartment whilst the rest of the party were placed in block 8. No big deal we thought until we realised that block 8 was over 1km away from the apartment we were placed in. With going as a group, we were keen to stay together. I was told I could move but it would cost me 30 euros to cover the cost of cleaning! Our apartment in block one was literally right next to the beach and the pool was outside the front door so location wise it was pretty good. It was a bit dated and no air conditioning although fans were provided and they have bars on the windows so you can have them open and feel safe that no one can get in. The next day we decided to relocate to block 8 so we could be close to our family. Block 8 is where the pool bar is so also handy. The apartment in block 8 was nice. It had. Even modernised and was light and airy. If you chose to go self catering, this place would be fab. The apartment had a reasonably large kitchen area with table, open plan living room with a sofa and TVs with patio doors opening onto the terrace. Apartments 801-810 were classed as superior and lead straight onto the pool area. They also have air conditioning but this is charged at 3 euros a day. The pool area wasn't massive but had enough space for sun beds. There was no rush to get sun beds and you have sun beds on your terrace. We had a running one day with a group of polish who decided to just sit on all of stuff that was on the sunbed whilst one of us had popped back to the room. The pool itself was bot the greatest. The shallow end was 1 and a half meters deep so for my 10 year old, too deep to stand up in. There is a baby pool but that was half meter deep so again, fairly deep. There is a glass safety barrier surrounding the pool with gates to get in which is a fab idea however I don't think it was finished. A few of us cut ourselves Whilst trying to get in the baby pool as there are no steps and the entrance was in the deeper bit so a good step down so using the barrier to steady ourselves, the edge was sharp and we ended up with cut hands. The pool bar was fairly standard with beer, soft drinks and spirits. As for snacks, it was a choice of toasted sandwich or chips. To say it wasn't busy, we had the wait 50 minutes for a toasted sandwich on some occasions. There is a pool bar in block 2 but that shut on 31st August as it was end of season so I dread to think how long you would wait for a sandwich in mid summer. The restaurant for all inclusive was block 3 so it was a 2km round trip for each meal so not great if you struggle to walk. I personally don't think this should be advertised as an all inclusive hotel. The restaurant is tiny and literally had chips, pasta, meat on the grill, one fish choice and one other meat choice. There is a small salad cart and a choice of 3 desserts. Again, I hate to think what it would be like in summer as people were waiting for tables. There is a sever lack of choice for vegetarians and children. Normally at an all inclusive you get pizzas or burgers. These appeared once. My vegetarian sister in law lived off chips, bread and pasta. The salad often had meet on it so that was a no go. The puddings literally had no flavour but little tubs of ice cream were available. It was self service on wine and soft drinks but you often had to wait for someone to serve you a beer. The staff were all really friendly but probably overworked as you saw them all day, everyday. There was often a wait for plates or food. The restaurant also served as the main bar so at 10.30 it shut and that was it, back to your room! We ended up spending money on drinks and food from the local shop which I don't normally end up doing when I go all inclusive. The set out of the apartments are really strange. Some were privately owned and there were public footpaths running through all of them so not contained at all. I think as a self catering, this place would be fab but I think it fails at being all inclusive. I wasn't worried about no entertainment as we often venture out but there is literally nothing around at all. It isn't near Puerto de Carmen as described. There was a selection of bars and a spar shop but nothing else so it was a bit boring. When it came to checking out, we had to leave the apartments at 12 but our flight wasn't until the night. There is not room to get changed in before your flight. We had to pay 20 euros to keep a room until 2pm or 77euros to keep it until we left at tea time. We saw people showering and getting dressed at the side of the pool as that is the only option. At 12, all wrist bands are cut off so you have no access to food or drink after that which I thought was poor especially as we arrived late so we had paid for a days all inclusive but didn't use it. So again, we had to venture out to buy food. We had opted to pay until 2pm but with 15 of us, we had to start getting changed just after 1 so we were stuck in our clothes we were traveling in for the rest of the day. Needless to say by the time we actually left, we were all sweaty and fed up. I wouldn't visit again but I would recommend if you are going self catering I just think they have jumped on the all inclusive band wagon without the capacity to deal with it. Oh and it's 10 euros for the tv control! More
