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.
These spacious, superior apartments have neutral tones with soft, simple furnishings. They come with a terrace for that added outdoor space. And they have a twin bedroom, a kitchenette, and a lounge area with a child-bed. Plus you'll also find air-conditioning, and a flatscreen TV with a DVD player included.
These apartments are warm and inviting, with their neutral scheme and soft furnishings. They come with a terrace for that added outdoor space. And they have a TV, a twin bedroom, a kitchenette, and a lounge area with a child-sized bed.
We booked this holiday through Thomson. We know Matagorda but had never stayed in this particular accommodation before.
Check in was easy, bungalow situated in a great spot. Bungalow spotless, furnishings dated and bed was horrendous.
We assumed as we had an evening flight that a courtesy room would be provided, this is certainly not the case.
Before we left UK Iwe has emailed Las Gaviotas to enquire about late check out room price and was told no more than 30euros, this seemed OK and we were willing to pay this. However when we arrived and asked reception staff she quoted 20 euros, this was even better but she did state that this was dependent on availability. We were to return the day prior to check out to enquire if anything was available.
We did ask about the courtesy room but were told Las Gaviotas don't provide one. We were free to use the showers at the pool to wash or their was a toilet at reception to get cleaned up!!
This is appalling and certainly the first time we have stayed anywhere and not had a courtesy room.
We telephoned our Thomson rep (holly) who said she'd enquire about a late check out room. We received a card through our door to say no availability and she was sorry for the inconvenience. I have since telephoned her twice (left two voicemails) and am yet to receive a reply.
We went to reception first thing today to ask about late check out availability and were told cost is now 70euros, that incidentally is only for the 5hrs we need it for.
None of this was ever mentioned when we booked the holiday and we're quite annoyed about the whole thing. Our Thomson rep has been useless and ignoring two voicemails is quite unacceptable.
Any future holidaymakers visiting here be aware.More
Stayed here from the 4th to the 14th of June and had a lovely relaxing time, all the staff were brilliant, the reception staff were always helpful and happy to help, nothing was a problem. The apartments were very clean and domestic staff were in 5 days a week changing towels , beds etc and always with a smile and some banter. We had a great time and thank you all very much for making it such a great holiday, hopefully, money permitting, we will see you soon ðMore
Great accommodation / great place
Stayed at the The Las Gaviotas in May 2016 for two weeks and could not find a bad thing to say about the place. The accommodation was clean, towels changed regular, and apartment cleaned regular. We stayed in Block 8 number 28, kitchen area was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The lounge area was comfortable and the bedroom was nice and plenty of storage. The patio was large and the garden space was perfect for sunbathing and large, great to have own outdoor space, felt like home. The staff on check in were friendly and helpful, and were very attentive throughout the holiday. We had two problems while there, the toaster broke (was replaced within the hour) and a minor leak from the toilet (fixed within 20 mins of reporting it. The apartment was within 2 mins walk of bars, shops and restaurants but still quite. even though we were on the far side of the complex could still see the see and only 2 mins walk from it. Matagorda is pedestrianized so no traffic down by the front. It is a 10 min walk to the airport, great for watching the planes landing. you can hear the airport but was never a problem and never got board watching the planes coming in to land. Local bars and eating places all great value for money and a walk along the front you will find even more places again all great value. never had a bad meal.
In short the whole place is amazing for families and couples and Apartamentos The Las Gaviotas are a fantastic place to stay. If your looking for luxury go somewhere else and waste your money. Apartamentos The Las Gaviotas are great value for money in the perfect spot and just what you need for a fun, relaxing holiday. Thank you Apartamentos The Las Gaviotas cant wait to come back.More
Beautiful, quite little bungalow
We had a great holiday in Las Gaviotas bungalows, Matagorda, returning 9th June . This was our fourth time to stay in these bungalows. This time we stayed in Block 7. Its a lovely quiet spot, but close to all amenities, including the sea. The pool is close by if you want it.Bungalow had lovely porch including sunbeds, table and chairs, perfect for reading, sunbathing and just relaxing. Very well maintained complex. The bungalow was cleaned regularly. It also has its own cooking facilities, if you don't feel like going out to one on the many restaurants which are close by. Ideal for couples who just want a relaxing get away. Looking forward to returning.More
Just got back
Stayed here from 5 th June til 19th June. Was not happy when upon arrival which was 11 45 we were told our accommodation was not ready and we were told to come back at 2 30 which we did. We were not impressed with this as we had been up since 1 30 am.when we went back at 2 30 we were taken to our bungalow number 13' block 8.we found our patio door could only be locked from the inside by aspin staple and padlock. The bungalow was comfortable,nice sea view but a little dated and bathroom could do with some sort of covering. Quite a walk to restaurant where good choice of breakfast. Staff very helpful. Would stay again but would prefer to be nearer amenities.had a great time.looking forward to going backMore
