5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

First class hotel with excellent accommodation and food. We were luck with the weather ok but the hotel itself would be fine even in bad weather.The concept of all-inclusive was exactly that- no surcharges for certain drinks etc.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

A year ago we stayed here for a week, and were so impressed we booked two weeks this year (December). The staff are genuinely friendly, everything was clean. The service was great. I am not (normally) a foodaholic, but the choice of quality food was almost bewildering - so good that we reckon we could have stayed for month and not needed to eat the same dishes twice! For a couple, two large rooms (a junior suite) seems to be the standard in this hotel, unlike the neighbouring Iberostar GPark Playa. The enormous bed was, for us, comfy enough. Brochure photos make the hotel look like it is almost on the beach, but you need to walk around the other hotel (or through it) for beach access. No problem for most people. As with much of the Canaries in winter, the mix of nationalities is predominantly German-speaking with some Spanish, Dutch, British and French in smaller numbers. Lovely beach walk (best part of an hour stroll) or shorter pedestrian/cycleway to main part of Jandia. We may break our "non-return" rule again!

Room Tip: A high room will give you a better beach view in most cases.

Dear Guest,

First and foremost we thank you for the time you spent to share your feedback on your return visit to our IBEROSTAR Playa Gaviotas Park hotel; we feel proud to read that you exceptionally “broke your rule” to not return to the same hotel twice, thanks to your first positive holiday experience among us.

Your enthusiasm for our staff is very much appreciated and will be a great source of motivation; we will certainly not fail to convey your very kind compliments to all of them.

Moreover, the passion for gastronomy being one of the prime pillars of our company, we greatly appreciate your praising comments on our restaurant where our professional Chefs strive to surprise our guests with a varied high standard gastronomy and the possibility to savor the best of the local cuisine as well as the finest international delights.

Once more, thank you for your trust; we are thrilled you enjoyed your recent stay with us. Thank you for making us your choice hotel when visiting the area. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon.

Returned from this hotel 30th November and we are already looking at booking again for next November which sums it up.
With cool drinks in reception on arrival, a "continental " breakfast that was anything but continental- HUGE choice including the fullest cooked breakfast imaginable to the exceptional main meals the catering was all excellent.
Rooms were spacious and clean, lovely outdoor pools.
The only negative comment is that the indoor pool/ jacuzzi was extra- expected massage to be charged for but not the pool.
It's an easy 5 minute stroll to the beach and about 20 min to Jandia.
With a car access to the stunning beaches farther afield is easy.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for the time you spent to share your personal impressions on your stay at our IBEROSTAR Playa Gaviotas Park hotel; we always welcome feedback, as it allows us to continually improve the experience we create for our guests.

We lament your disappointment for the extra charge to access the indoor pool and Jacuzzis being part of our Spa Sensations area, however we do have a heated outdoor pool for guests wishing to have a swim when the weather temperatures are cooler.

On the other hand, we greatly appreciate your praising comments on our gastronomy offer because in IBEROSTAR we know that meals are a very important aspect of our guests' overall holiday experience, this is why our professional Chefs strive on a daily basis to prepare a wide variety of typical local dishes as well as the best international delights in order to please all palates, it is very enjoyable to read that we could conquer yours.

We are also grateful for your positive mention on your room, as we want to offer spotless and comfortable accommodations to our guests and ensure an excellent and relaxing rest during their holiday in our hotel.

Thank you again for making us your choice hotel when visiting the area; we look forward to serving you again in our IBEROSTAR hotels in the most beautiful destinations worldwide.

The hotel is typical Iberostar. Good service, spacious rooms and a nice pool. For a little amount we got an upgrade from junior suite to suite, getting a separate bedroom and southside balcony. We stayed for a week having AI.The only minus has been the little too hard mattress, but still we slept well. Two years back we stayed at Iberostart Bouganville on Tenerife where did not like the buffet that much. This time the buffets where excellent, too much to choose and most (at least the hot part) was prepared continously during the time the buffet was available. So freshly cooked and prepared. Some shows were really good, some we did not like, but that's a very personal issue. We do not go back because we almost always go to other places, but we definitely suggest anybody to stay here and enjoy the stay at this hotel. One last thing i'd like to mention, the old tv must be replaced by a new led tv or lcd (flat screen, 32 inch will do).

This is the sixth time we have stayed at this hotel in the last 3 to 4 years. This in itself speaks volumes, for the food / service / cleanliness and helpfulness of the staff.

We have stayed at several other hotels on the Island and in my opinion this is simply the best. In July my son and his family visited the hotel, he has stayed at hotels throughout the world. He was enchanted by the beach and simply loved the food.

Returned yesterday Saturday 16th of November from a 7 days holiday at The Iberostar Gaviotas Park in Jandia and really enjoyed it, all the staff were friendly and helpful and did their best to make sure we were happy with everything, they rang us in the room and came to the door just to ask if everything was ok. The room was cleaned daily and towels changed and the food was excellent, We had one problem which was our own fault having left the patio door open all night on the first night and we were plagued by Mosquitos,both of us got around 30 bites, after that we slept with the door closed but the air conditioning wasn't very effective, I reported it to reception and they checked it out twice but it still didn't blow cold, they fitted us a plug in device to try and stop the mozzies and other than the odd one we didn't have any more problems, we were on the second floor and there was a tree right outside which is probably where they came from, it didn't spoil the holiday as it cools down at night this time of year but it mite have if it had been mid summer. It's a nice place to go if you are looking for a nice hotel in a quiet resort

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a sea view

A really wonderful hotel on the permanently sunny Jandia peninsular. The hotel has all the key ammemeties you would expect for a resort (3 swimming pools, large restaurant, gym, spa and access to the facilities if the neighbouring Iberostar Playa Gaviotas resort) - be careful when booking though as it can be confusing when booking which resort you asre actually in.

The resort is at most a 3minute walk to the beach, and a 40min walk from the nearest town.

The choice and quality of food and drink is excellent with something for even the most picky eaters every lunch and night (the ability to poor your own drinks is very useful at reducing waiting tines during the busy periods!).

The daytime and evening activities are fine for a resort of this size (3 or 4 things on each day and a show in the evening).

Overall a great place to catch some sun - if you're looking for a base to do things out of consider somewhere more in the north, but for somewhere to relax and get some sun (even in November when we went it was warm enough to be outside in swimwear) this place is hard to beat at this price.

Room Tip: Don't be fooled by "sea side view" this means if you lean over you balcony and look to...
