Great location, close to all amenities
Posted May 14, 2014
We have stayed at Las Gaviotas in the past and enjoyed the location.
The staff could not be any more helpful; the receptionists speak excellent English and nothing is too much trouble.
Las Gaviotas is set out in different areas, we were in complex 7, which hash about 12 bungalows and a pool, the main complex is bigger and has a pool and restaurant. All are within 10 mins stroll to the beach and main shopping/eating/entertainment area, some only a minutes walk.
The accommodation is very much like all other apartments in the area, although appears bigger due to the vaulted ceilings. The rooms are spacious and there's a small area for storage of cases etc. there is also a small walled outdoor area at the back with a washing line, this was particularly useful to store our hire bikes.
The rooms are fresh and clean and decorated to a good standard. There is wifi available at a cost but there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area where it can be picked up for free.
The only downside are the beds which are basic and not the best in terms of confines, although nothing to complain about. They are no different from other beds in other complexes in the area.
We have been visiting Matagorda once or twice a year for the past 6/7 years and have stayed in most of the self catering accommodation in the area. We usually go where the offers are but if we had a choice this one would be in the top 2.
