“Relaxing stay”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in Block 2 for 11 nights. Had problem with cleaning, broken hair dryer and toaster. All matters were quickly resolved after reporting to reception. Complex is very well maintained. Pool area was quiet and never had to worry about free sunbeds. Pool was cold but refreshing. Superior apartments were very spacious. Had no need for air conditioning as it was cool enough in the evenings during our stay. Directly across road to commercial centre with good choice of bars and restaurants. La Brisa was our favourite and the bar with no name! Hired bikes at cost of €10 per day. Fantastic cycle tracks to Arricife and Puerto del carmen. Great area for walking and beaches were spotless. Thoroughly enjoyed the break in this quiet area of Lanzarote. Day trip to Playa Blanca on bus was also worthwhile. (€5 return). Would recommend these apartments if you enjoy peace and quiet and relaxation.

We have stayed in this lovely complex twice now and both times have had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The staff are all very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The food and drink are plentiful with a good selection of choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bungalows are spacious and clean with all mod cons and comfortable furnishings.

I would certainly recommend this complex for families and couples of all ages

Room Tip: This is a roaming complex we had three bungalows near the restaurant and pool which was excellent an...

Stayed at Las Gaviotas Bungalows with my partner in May 2013, and had a lovely lovely holiday. We were in Block 8 and even though a little walk from the beach front, all in all it was ideal. Plenty of room around the pool and no need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve a sunbed! The pool itself was absolutely freezing though and could do with warming up out of high season. The bungalow was clean and ideal for us, well equiped kitchen, nice shower (always hot). Nice to have your own patio area with sunbeds too - and excellent area for breakfast as well. Plenty of choice of bars and restaurants in Matagorda, or a pleasant walk along the seafront and there are plenty more bars and restaurants. My favourite was Jungla
:-)) The wifi is very hit and miss at Las Gaviotas but most bars have free wifi so wasn't really a problem. We will definitely be going back next year - can't wait.

Spent a week here on 16th December for 1 week and loved it! facing shopping centre and could see the sea view to left of our bungalow, payed for upgrade before going and had no complaints, we went for a relaxing holiday, rooms was lovely, and cleaning staff were constantly coming to clean and provide towels so much that we asked her not to clean our bungalow on some days and to come back the following days, which she did, nice friendly cleaning staff, a lot of the residents were quite old but this did not bother us because this made it peaceful and quiet, we are family with one teenage daughter of 15, who had pool to herself a lot of the time! 10 mins by taxi to bars and clubs on main strip,and nice to come back to quiet bungalows! I look forward to coming back again and would definitely go back!!!

Room Tip: book superior rooms, they are nearer to shops and beach! and are lovely!

We have just returned from a 7 night stay @ Las Gaviotas, we had initially booked the standard accommodation, but on arrival decided to pay extra and upgrade to their "Superior" apartment..After checking over our accommodation we found there were some problems with fixtures and fittings and i was not happy with the standard of cleanliness in the bathroom, i did complain to reception and to their credit the issues i had were dealt with quickly and effectively, end of story!...Our stay at this Apartment complex was a happy one, i loved the lay out of the place, the pool area's and the friendly atmosphere..
This was our second trip to Lanzarote and we have fallen in love with the Island and have made some very special friends on both occasions..
Most Holidaymakers have little teething problems with there hotels/apartments and on a budget this is to be expected, overall we had a fantastic Holiday, and we are already planning our next trip to Las Graviotas

Last year my boyfriend and i stayed here, at it was SO nice we decided to go back again this year.
As soon as we arrived we were upgraded to a superior bungalow, which was perfect location, right next to restaurant and swimming pool, perfection!
The food was well mixed, Breakfast had amazing fresh bread and sugar/doughnut sticks which were out of this world. Lunch time was fresh mxed salads and hot meals, and dinner was fab!!! Beer and wine were just what we needed, especially as we were All Inclusive!
Staff were extremly helpfull and bungalows cleaned 5 days a week. We think the main worker was Anya, she was outstanding!
I would recommend these bungalows to anybody. We plan to go back next year!

Room Tip: Block 3 bungalow 6. Perfect!

Returned last week from a 2 week stay at Las Gaviotas which I booked through Sunshine Holidays. Familiar with Matagorda, I have often walked past and liked the look of the bungalows so decided to book as a birthday treat. Blocks 1 - 4 are by far the best location nearest the beach and promenade so I paid the extra supplement for a superior bungalow which are only located in blocks 2, 3 and 8 and requested to be allocated block 1 - 4.

On arrival (approx 1 pm) we were greeted by a very abrasive woman (Ms Velasco) who told us to come back in two hours because morning arrivals had not been checked in yet. We went for a walk and upon returning were told we had been allocated block 8. I explained this was not what I had requested as it was much further back in the resort, she knew this as she had a copy of the booking in her hand. With a shrug of the shoulders she said "f you want blocks 1 - 4 you will have to pay an extra 280 euros. I had ALREADY paid extra for a superior bungalow and there is no mention anywhere that blocks 2 and 3 cost more than block 8. I protested and refused to pay this amount and was then offered a 'cut price' deal of 140 euros!! This was totally unacceptable so there was no option but to go to block 8. What I gathered from the conversation was that unless a booking is made directly via Gaviotas, then the chances of being allocated 1 - 4 are minimal, and even then cannot be guaranteed. Why, when there are availabe bungalows?

The bungalow in block 8 was tired and quite isolated from where we wanted to be - after 3 days we decided to go back to Reception and pursue the matter as there were many empty bungalows in blocks 1 - 4.

As luck would have it, a charming Norwegian lady was working on Reception and after consultation with Asst. Manager Gilberto we were offered a bungalow in block 2. This we accepted and it made a total change to our holiday. It was fresh, cosy and in a good situation - in fact just what had been requested, what a shame it took three days to get there.

This situation has clouded my opinion of Las Gaviotas as I feel we unneccessarily lost three days of our holiday and would urge caution if you have a special request, particularly if booking via one of the many internet booking sites.

Room Tip: Blocks 1 - 4 if you can get them!
