Very good location facing the sea and the boulevard. Supermarket downstairs so groceries easily available. Many restaurant options within walking distance. Did not try the breakfast so cannot comment. A decent balcony and the room is large. Had to ask for a kettle and they gave us a coffee machine which was good enough. No wifi in the room (available...

Great location. Helpful & kind staff. This is very family friendly. Love the little kitchenette, divided rooms ( we booked the 1 room suite) perfect fit for 2 adults abd 3 kids. We would stay here again. It's by no means a 5 star hotel, but it 100% fits for us.

I stayed at the Gaivota because the hotel which was recommended to me was full at the end of May 2014. That kinda got things off to a bad start but I was delighted by what I found at the Gaivota. The staff were friendly and helpful. I arrived way before normal check-in time but they got my room ready... More

We have wanted to stay at Gaivota for a long time. Last year, we had the chance and don't regret the choice one bit..! The location is perfect..! Close to restaurants, cafes and shopping. It was a bit noisy, when the slider was open at the front of the room, but expected, since it was right on the Avenida, where... More

This hotel location is great, in the center of everything, across the marina and port. The reception staff is very attentive and will do its best in order to satisfy the guest needs. Plenty of outside eating places around. The lobby and room wooden furniture is quite outdated. TV is still a 25" tube one but who cares. The elevator... More

pros: great breakfast, very clean everywhere, good value. cons: no other food except for breakfast, average rooms with hard mattress, air conditioning didn't heat the room. the hotel needs to have some renovation. would stay there for the price and breakfast, not for the quality.

It was OK. Excellent location in the city centre next to restaurants, shops, etc. Clean rooms, comfortable beds but not the pillows. Breakfast was OK but it is not a 4 star aparthotel as advertised. If you are looking for a 4 star there are others nearby but the price is higher, of course.
