Apartments Las Gaviotas  

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.

Amazing property and location

Having booked a week at the beginning of November (to actually stay in Playa Blanca, the complex was awful and we only stayed 3 nights), we were lucky enough to be able to move to Las Gaviotas for the last 4 nights of our holiday. Having reviewed this property we had high expectations and we were not disappointed. Everything from the location to the accommodation to the helpful friendly staff really made our holiday and we cannot wait to go back. We stayed in Block 4 which were the Superior Bungalows and the air con in the bedroom was very welcome. After staying in a very run down and grubby bungalow in Playa Blanca then it was such a relief to find our bungalow at Las Gaviotas spotlessly clean and fresh. The added bonus being a full size hairdryer that actually dried your hair. The beds were comfortable as was the sofa. The only downside really was the pool which wasn't heated and was freezing but imagine this would be good in the hotter months. There is also now safety glass round the pools which is a nice feature and not shown in the photos.More

Everything is in walking distance

The Beach, shops, restaurants and bars are all within walking distance. You can walk along the beach or the pavement and still have a seafront view the whole way! Each set of Bungalows has its own pool area but not all pools have a children's shallow pool. The regular pools are 1.5m deep and completely unsuitable for children. We requested to be near a children's pool and this request was accommodated. Unfortunately we were only able to make use of the pool for one day (Sunday) before building works commenced on the Monday to install glass barriers around the pool. We received a note from Management that evening explaining these works were essential and to comply with Spanish Law changes regarding poolside safety barriers. Whilst I understand this is necessary work and safety comes first, my 7 year old nephew was upset at having no pool access his entire holiday. The bungalow was clean and well equipped and for a flat fee you can have access to the hotel wifi. The kitchen/livingroom area was spacious and had a separate drying area and terrace outside the front entrance. Our bungalow also had a courtyard area that separated the livingroom/kitchen area from the other wing of the bungalow that contained the bathroom and bedrooms. The layout was different from anything else we'd seen before and gave the bungalow an fantastic feeling of space. We had to make jokes though about the nightly lock-up procedures as there was no lock on the door that led from our courtyard to the pool area. This meant we had to lock ourselves in the bedroom wing at night as well as locking up the courtyard-to-livingroom door and the livingroom-to-street door. Each lock had a different key so it was quite a chore but just became part of the routine. Overall this is a great location for families. The resort has plenty to offer and Puerto del Carmen is about 5 euros in a taxi if you are looking for more to do. I would recommend both the resort and the accommodation and would visit it again.More

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
