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

The personnel at the hotel was very helpful, they even borrowed us an umbrella as rain can come fast in the Azores. Very convenient location with easy access from the airport or the cruise terminal. No wifi in the rooms, and the public access in the lobby is unreliable.

We stayed at the Gaivota specifically because we were travelling with our children and grandchildren and the apartment concept was appealing to us. Unfortunately the rooms we were given were not up to the standard of what is rated as 4 star. We were given an apartment that was A & B, "B" consisted of a livingroom kitchen/dining combination ,...

The hotel is not new, but our room was clean and large. Breakfast is not very Interesting, but enough to fill you up. But if you have it the second time you understand that the hall is too dark for good island's morning. Staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel is located on a main street near a moorage. Normal...

Located in the center of the city, could not ask for better service, very clean, and a great view of the harbor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only recommendation if at all possible is to provide WIFI in the rooms and not just the lobby. Would definitely stay again at this hotel
