We stayed at the Hotel Gaivota for 12 nights in late March and early April (2013). After reading other reviews we booked this hotel for the first 3 nights of our trip and were so happy with it that we spent our entire visit there. Arriving from Canada at 7:30 am we needed an early check-in and this was easily arranged when we called to book the room. We had a wonderful and spacious 1 bedroom apartment with a view of the marina and a balcony. Although we didn't cook, the kitchenette with the fridge was very handy. There is a supermarket next door and a wonderful snack bar called "Pink" (about 30 metres to the west) where we had many lunches. Our room was kept spotless by the housekeeping staff. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful with all of our requests (extra towels, travel directions, calling a taxi etc). This was the best hotel experience I've had and I would not hesitate to return to Hotel Gaivota.
