Situated close to the action in La Paz, Las Gaviotas is a comfortable home base for exploring this sleepy city and its environs. The resort is one block from the malecon and another 5 or 10 to the heart of the city. We stayed here for a week in the end of December and were very happy with our experience.... More

I own a timeshare in Cancun and that is how I got to stay at this resort. That is by excahnging my week with RCI. The city of La Paz is about 250 KM from the airport in Cabo San Lucas and the drive to La Paz is not something I would recommend. I drove to the resort at night... More

My sister and I loved our stay at Las Gaviotas, and hope to return in the fall. The units are huge, with a fresh breeze blowing through. The units were well equipped and very pleasant. The staff was wonderful, and we loved that this was not a big fancy gringo resort. If you want to feel like Vegas in Mexico,... More

I have now stayed at Las Gaviotas 4 times. My husband and I go down with friends and rent either a 3 or 4 bed house. Everytime it has been with a different owner and every time it has been perfect. We usually do a costco shop, fill a cooler with veggies, fruit, meat and buy beer/etc at the shop... More

This may not be the vacation for you if you want to be pampered at pool side, have room service and experience all of the amenities a large resort has to offer. Las Gaviotas has it's own niche, completely unlike other resorts. The resort is small and there is no restaurant on location. However, the locals are friendly, there are... More

Great casual resort for an urban vacation. One block up from the busy Mercado - the primary promenade around the bay. Easy walking access to a variety of restaurants and bars and shops. Room came with all the basics needed for a relaxing week, including a full-size fridge, affordable water for drinking and making ice cubes, and a nice pool... More

I am currently staying at La Gaviotas, and was therefore interested to see what others had to say as I sit here by the pool enjoying the sunshine. I own a timeshare, which is how I got to stay here, but mine is not located in Mexico, so I did not know exactly how this one would compare to the... More

This little timeshare property in laid back La Paz is a real sleeper. The complex is not new, nor glitzy, but the place is immaculately cared for and the people could not be nicer. 16 units only, we got to it through an exchange with RCI, and spent a week there. Large unit, great king bed, plus other sleeping for... More

What a pleasant surprise! Las Gaviotas is great. The staff is exceptional. I can't think of a single complaint. Everything was perfect. We loved La Paz as well. In fact, we're going back to Las Gaviotas this spring.

Couldn't find much about this resort but went ahead with a RCI exchange there. What a wonderful surprise if you are into wanting a bit of old Mexico charm as well as modern conveniences and hospitality. Everything was done on our time and when they had the most dreaded first day hospitality get together it was just that. No timeshare... More
