We stayed for 9 nights at the Hotel Gaivota. This is a great hotel with the best location and a superb view if you're lucky enough to have a room facing the ocean. Right across from the marina with a grocery store, an excellent tour company, a shopping center, yacht club,

First I will say that the hotel is in a great location. The breakfast has a lot of choices and has something new every day. The front desk is friendly and even helped my husband find a parking spot. The reason I have rated it so poorly was that when we got our room the closet

Dear Guests Many thanks for your review on Tripadvisor. We do regret for not providing you a pleasant stay. High season, full occupancy and maintenance are quite difficult to manage, that is why sometimes malfunctions are reported by guests, and we solve them as soon as possible. We also are planning a refurbishment in early 2019,because the well-being of our guests is very important for us. We hope to see you on the future. With our Best regards Team Hotel Apartamentos Gaivota.

Rates were so reasonable, we choose to pay for the night and checked right in, had breakfast as paid for and took a nap. Perfect for a red eye flight.

Dear likewyse If you ask at Front Desk for thermal bath towels we will lend them to you. They are white, but we have specific ones that are only used for that.

Hello dear CG R, Yes, the hotel has laundry service, and near by as well.

There are both hotel rooms and apartments. I would expect that you can get the use of an iron and ironing board. Also in the little plaza beside the hotel there is a laundry that washes, drys and folds clothes for a reasonable price. I wouldn't count on early check in however we did get into our room a couple of hours early. We found the front desk quite helpful during our three weeks stay.
