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.

An experience never to be repeated
It's hard to know where to start.Maybe with the 2 emails I sent asking if we could have a certain apartment,fair enough if they couldn't accommodate but let's ask.These were ignored and just before we arrived the people before us were assigned our requested apartment,lovely for them as we found out it was their first visit ever to Lanzarote,easy to ignore a repeat customers request in favour of a new customer.Arrived into what we thought was a lovely place after paying additional charges and deposits for safes and the TV remote.The door to the patio was kept closed by the lock you see in the picture,basically because someone had broken it and rather than repair and get it to close properly let's put a crappy lock on and hope the people are able to open and close with enough force as you need 2 people to do it,it's no longer on the rollers.The fridge door was missing some parts,broken off of course but never to be replaced.The plug socket in the bathroom was just amazing as you can see in the photos,careful not to pull too hard or it will come off the wall.What I really loved though was how well we got to know the handyman,with 2 bathrooms in the apartment it took it in turns to block and leak constantly,we alternated bathrooms every day so both smelled rancid on alternating days and each time we were told they were fixed.Add all this together plus the fact they wanted to charge us extra for cushions for the sunbeds (we got them free in the end and told not to tell) even though for 39 apartments there are only 24 loungers by the pool meaning just about every 3rd person may get a bed.Lets not leave out the lovely cleaner who barked at us because we asked for 1 towel to be replaced on a non towel change day.All in all a horrible experience for what is supposed to be a relaxing holiday,I'm not precious and some of these things alone would be fine but enough is enough,it may not be 5 star which is not what we were expecting but it's not too much to ask for things to function as intended and not have bathrooms that smell like a sewer. On a final note, dont bother complaining about the bathrooms either in Block 8, we were told that perhaps they were getting blocked because we were using above average amount of toilet roll, when my husband responded that this was insane he was then told in actual fact your not supposed to be putting toilet roll down at all. I know this is the case in some places in the island that you cant do this but for those places they put up a sign, apparently guests didnt like the signs they previously had up so they opted to go with the psychic route and hope people would magically know.More
Great short break
Stayed at the Las Gaviotas for 4 nights at the end of April and can't fault it. Friendly English speaking receptionist checked us in and then we were driven round to our apartment immediately - via showing us where the local supermarkets and restaurants were. We stayed in Block 8, Room 35 so near the pool. Rooms are clean and have everything we needed (although as someone else has mentioned, the cups are tiny so I'd either take a bigger cup/mug or buy one out there!), good powerful hot shower and decent hairdryer. There was a table and chairs and 2 sunloungers on the patio area at the back of the apartment so if you didn't fancy the pool/beach you could stay there. We didn't eat there at all as were SC - plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. On check out we were picked up within minutes of calling reception to come and collect us and our bags. Had a great time there, it was a lovely, very reasonably priced short break and we'd go back.More
