We ended up here on a Saturday evening and cheaper options were all full (weekend busy for the famous duty free shopping fest at the Deposito in town). The last 'bungalow' was $160 for the two of us. Strong smell of disinfectant, which did not deter the kitchen cockroach colony. Spacious if spartan. A roomy enough inside social area and... More

Located in the beautiful setting of Gulfo Dulce, right at the beginning of Golfito, this a bit pretentious and a bit run down hotel or motel. Rooms are spacious overlooking the garden and the peaceful bay The pool could be magnificent but was not well entertained. Security is questionable. Not recommended

We stayed at Las Gaviotas for 7 nights and by the time we left, it felt like home! From check-in the staff was friendly and very helpful. We had a couple problems with the room which were corrected within minutes of when we reported them. The rooms are clean and spacious. The grounds are very well kept and had quite... More

I stayed at Hotel Las Gaviotas for one night in April. The hotel is located at the entrance of Golfito directly on the shore of Golfo Dulce. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, however there is no beach, just a pool (very nice) and a pier for fishing-boats. My room was quite large, tastefully decorated with high ceilings...two double beds, flat-screen-tv,... More

What an unbelievably fantastic experience! The serenity, peacefulness, gorgeous landscaping and surrounding beauty are just the beginning of this excellent hotel and resort. The friendly, helpful, staff (including wait staff, reception personnel, bartenders, landscape crews, maintenance personnel, and anyone else we came across) went out of their way to make us feel at home, and provide us with everything we...

Las Gaviotas was right on the ocean. It had a large open air restaurant and bar that looked out across the pool and then the ocean. Even though it was during the Christmas holidays the place was very quiet and we didn't see hardly any other guests. It is on the south side of town and you would need a... More

Have stayed 3 times. Locally owned, great view and helpful staff. Great dining on patio by the pool. Not for hyper types. Every thing is laid back as it should be.
