Very good hotel in a great position. Immaculately clean, superb bar, restaurant and reception staff. Huge choice of food, lovely pool area, though the water was cold! Sun beds a bit crammed together and the pool bar wasn't brilliant but the Cortana bar is wonderful with great views. Morre Jable town is accessible, either a couple of miles walk along... More

We stayed here in august with our 12 year old son. We had a room on the 7th floor, which in reality is only two floors up. The hotel has a clever design, the pool and most amenities are located on level 5, the lower residential floors being built into the cliffside down to the beach. The result is a... More

Our stay at Iberostar Gaviotas Playa was generally a pleasant one. The room was spacious, clean and with a nice view of the sea. The food was good, however, the meat was sometimes overcooked and dry. There are enough choices even if you are following certain diets. They have a wide selection of vegetables in case you don't eat meat,... More
