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.

Not a Suitable All Inclusive Resort
We stayed at The Las Gaviotas Bungalows for ten days in July 2017 having booked a superior room with pool view on an all inclusive basis. I'll start with the positives: nice little bungalow if a little dated, nice overall complex, near to bars and restaurants but not disturbed by noise, very friendly staff, clean pool areas and quiet sun terraces around the pool areas. Upon arrival (we arrived around 11.30am) our room was not ready which was fine, however they advise you check in time is 3pm, they hold you to it. Even if the room is ready and available (which ours was as we wandered over to Block 2 after lunch and found the bungalow in advance), you are not allowed to check in any earlier. We were in apartment 215. Deposits for remote control for TV and Air Conditioning is a little petty. Safety Deposit box charge is expensive overall. Room is cleaned five days out of seven however our towels were only changed twice during stay. Now for the not so positive; WIFI poor despite being included for one device in Superior Bungalow. Air conditioning poor, light bulbs flicker and the beds are very hard. Within block 2, the pool bar was not open and the statement you get from reception is "we are not using it". This means that if you want to get anything to eat or drink, you have to walk approximately three minutes to Block 3 where the restaurant is or to Block 8 which has a small pool bar but is a 10 minute walk from the other blocks! The all inclusive drinks were local brands and do not include water which is a chargeable drink. Furthermore, it finishes at around 10pm most nights. There is no entertainment or anywhere to sit after dinner other than around the pool side in block 3. To be frank the food in the restaurant was hit and miss. The staff work very hard but the food is very samey and bland. Breakfast was probably the most appetizing but even then some mornings, if you went in early, the scrambled egg was not cooked and was left to cook under the heater lights. Its a very small restaurant and if everyone on the complex needed to use it, it would just not accommodate the number of people. Furthermore, people are allowed to reserve tables in the restaurant and these are blocked out for the whole breakfast serving time even if the booking is made for 10am. The pool area in Block 2 was small but nice. However, two of the four glass gates were not in use with signs saying out of order. The two in use gave you access to the deep end of the pool only meaning that anyone who did not want to swim out of their depth or allow their children to had to walk along the pool edge to the shallow water for access. No lifeguard for Block 2. This was the same for the duration of our stay and could be a safety hazard in my opinion. Overall, whilst I liked the location, I would not re visit this complex unless on a self catering basis as the design layout makes it impossible to be considered an all inclusive facility.More
Will definitely return
We stayed in block 1 apt 17 which was a superior apartment facing the beach. The view was wonderful and we had breakfast each morning looking at the sea. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed including a hair drier aur con and free WiFi. The decor was modern. There was a table with three chairs and 3 sun sun lounhers on the patio. There were shops and restaurants within 5.mins walk and the bus top to Puerta del Carmen was only 5 mins walk. Only negatives were that the beds were hard and that the pool was small with a glass surround which made access awkward More
My boyfriend and I stayed in this complex from June 29th to July 6th. We went all inclusive and the food was excellent, buffet type three meals a day. Breakfast was full english, pancakes or cereals/croissants. Lunch, we expected cold foods, but no! They put on a full spread again! And dinner was a variety of things as well! We stayed in section 8 which was incredible. Pool right outside AND a bar, which we could connect to the free wifi from our room. The apartments were lovely as well. I would suggest going all inclusive, as it was worth every penny.More

In November/December 2016 we stayed in a hotel near by but due to my partners illness we had to look for a hotel with not so many steps!, the Las Gaviotas fitted what we were looking for. We stayed here the last two weeks of June and found it great. We were in bungalow 317 and it was perfect. Kitchen diner, nice bedroom with air conditioning being a superior bungalow and bathroom. On the patio was a table and 2 chairs and two sun loungers which were much used. Round the corner was a lovely little pool and the spar shop and restaurants were just a stones throw away. The beach was just 2 minutes away. We was also able to book our room for an extra night having a very late evening departure but this has to be done in advance. We are now looking to book again for later this year but this time a couple of friends want to come too. All in all it was a wonderful holiday. Just some minor criticism but nothing really bad. We think the bathroom could do with up dating and being a superior room we got free wifi but this only covered one unit and being in this modern age we needed other items connecting so please make your wifi for the room and not just for one unit. See you later this year. Gary & Beverley.More
Would I go back "probably yes"
Lovely and clean, well looked after, modern well equipped rooms very good for self catering, we went all inclusive and the food was great, something for everyone, bed was uncomfortable but that's my opinion someone else might like it, fold out bed be careful legs tend to fold under, just be a bit careful how you get off it. Lots of pools 7 and they are dotted around the resort, pools don't get very crowded either due to this, a very large resort, bungalows done by the sea front as well as around the pools, the main restaurant depending on where you are can be a bit of a walk, especially for the less mobile, choose your accommodation accordingly, only issue was one member off staff, female in restaurant should learn how to smile and be polite a bit of customer service training wouldn't go a miss there, if she doesn't like her job then leave and let someone else do a better job, otherwise all the rest were lovely. Beach can be a bit rocky in places but again choose where you sit, sea lovely and full of fish great for snorkelling. Small shopping centre a couple of minutes walk again depending on where on the resort you are, more shops and shopping centre a good 5 + mins walk, more choice of shops etc there. Buses to the other parts of the island speak to reception they will give you times and a map. Not a great deal to do in Matagorda but it's a nice relaxed holiday away from the maddening crowd. Shops in the main town tend to be a bit cheaper not a great deal though so worth a trip out if you have lots to get. No entertainment on resort bear this in mind, also the bar in the main restaurant if you have accommodation can get a bit loud if you are an early to bed person. Would I go back "probably yes". More
