We stayed twice at playa gaviota. The resort is a little tired and dated, as someone said before.
The appartments near the street are big with a kitchen and a private terrasse with a nice view. The cleaning lady comes every day except on sunday. Be careful though for the street noise specially on the third floor.
If you rent one on the beach, you will have people from the appartments come to sunbathe or read in front of your door. So there is no privacy.
Also the fridge in the big villa is very old and makes a big noise so you may be awaken during the night by this. Don't forget your insect repellent for night time ;-)
When we were there, the manager had allowed camping on the beach! as there are no facilities, we could ear people talking even at night time and they would wash there dishes or shower right in front of our door using the shower in the garden. You could also see them walk on the beach with there toilet paper ...
Be aware that you cannot swim at that beach, the water is full of seeweeds. You have to go to north beach by taxi which costs 45-50 pesos one way.
You can find better for the same money or even less on the island.
