Hotel Apartamentos Gaivota is located across from the marina, making it convenient to walk to restaurants, arrange a rental car or an activity which are all located in the marina area. The hotel is quite small. It's not fancy, but has all the amenities one would need. -Free Breakfast offers different types of coffees (from a machine), fresh fruit, different... More

The hotel is simple, nice and clean. Great location, right in front of the harbour and 5 mins walk to the town square, and our car rental place is just next door. Breakfast is not bad with both warm and cold choices. Our room was decent sized but the view was not great. Air conditioning didn't work, but the Azores... More

I really enjoyed my week stay here in July 2015. The location is perfect, right in the heart of town. The rooms are clean and have what is needed. While I did find the beds and pillows hard, I was able to rest well. The breakfast is sufficient to get the day started. The staff was great. Special thanks the... More

Stayed here for a week as part of a large extended family reunion. The rooms were spacious, and the larger apartment-like rooms overlooking the water were amazing. The single rooms were very comfortable and immaculate and the staff warm and helpful. The front desk staff made great recommendations for places to eat and assisted with transportation arrangements. Great breakfast buffet... More

A couple of people from our party stayed here for a few days during our vacation. They wanted the freedom to be able to discover the downtown area on foot, spend time at the local cafes,  restaurants, beer pubs, farmers market, and meet local friends. The hotel is situated in the Avenida with easy access to everything. You don't need... More

We stayed here for eight days following the first leg of the AZAB yacht race. We had a one bedroom apartment with a small balcony and sea view. It was very clean and tidy. Comfortable beds and a good shower. Kitchen fitments were adequate but no door on the freezer compartment meant no ice for drinks. The breakfast buffet was... More

We, family of 5, stayed at this hotel for a week. We had a two bed apartment, with a single pull-out in the lounge. The apartment was clean and tidy, although we had some ants during the first couple of days, but the hotel staff must have sorted it out. The hotel is in a great location, right on the... More

I returned to visit the Gaivota again this year, this time with my girlfriend & friends for a fishing trip. The hotel was exactly as I remembered it, clean, comfortable, close to the town centre and with huge rooms. The staff were as friendly as ever, very helpful and full of good recommendations re activities and places of interest.

The hotel is perfectly located right next to the marina and next door to an indoor shipping centre. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. They recommended and organized island tours. The breakfast is included in the price, the food was average but substantial. It was nice to see some local offerings on the menu. The hotel bar is... More
