I was expected sooo much more from the pictures and comments! To be fair, the place is very modern, when you get in, the lounge area, the reception and other common places are very modern, nicely decorated and the lady at the reception very nice and helpfull. The breakfast was ok. The disappointment came with the room itself! We had... More

We apologise for the problem that you had with one of the beds. If we had known this, we would have balanced it right at that moment. Talking about the lack of security in the rooms located in the ground floor, you shouldn't have understood what it was explained, since there are several ways to lock the terrace. For example...

This is the fourth time I've stayed here and I feel I have no reason to go elsewhere. Staff are all very helpful , pleasant and friendly and the hotel itself is lovely and clean. The rooms are spacious and if you can;I would say opt for a roof top balcony as you'll enjoy the views. Situated in a great... More

We popped here for one night in the middle of our holiday. My Partner and I were both impressed simple booking in. The room was very clean and tidy as was the en-suite bathroom and adjoining roof terrace (which gave a great view of the village and on to the sea). Continental Breakfast was Great. I would definitely visit again.... More

Fell totally in love with San Jose having stumbled across it almost accidentally and Las Gaviotas is the perfect base to explore this beautiful place from. Lovely big bedroom with decent sized balcony and great big bathroom. Best of all the room had a fantastic shower. Las Gaviotas is certainly as good a standard as any of the 3 star... More

My partner and I stayed at this Hostal for one night during a 3 week stay in Almeria. Located just 5 mins walk from San Jose on the main road, this is a lovely Hostal which is far more like a hotel. Rooms are cool and extremely clean with a view of pink bouganvillia and the swimming pool at the... More

This was my second visit to Las Gaviotas, it is a basic but very clean Hostal and is suitably situated on the outskirts of San Jose, ensuring a quiet nights sleep. The beds & pillows are comfortable and the linen spotless. The bathroom was ok with a bath & shower, the towels were a bit thin and need replacing. The... More

Our scuba diving club recently had our annual pilgrimage to the Cabo De Gata area and we all stayed in las Gaviotas for the 2nd year running. The situation of the place is only a 10 minute walk from the port and beach areas, on the edge of San Jose, and is therefore very quiet. Rooms are clean and are... More
