“Location, Location, Location--the best”
Reviewed 29 March 2009

Just finished our fifth journey over 10 years to Puerto Penasco at Las Gaviotas and the renovations really made us feel like we were at a five star resort. Our family stayed at Mayan Palace ... and whle very, very clean it was almost sterile. We expect a few bugs in Mexico, but who cares ... the Sunsets, the warm sun and cool breezes insure everyone is in a great mood! We love being 'where the people are' ... the sounds and smells mixed with the sea air make the margaritas taste all that much better. Larry & Erica from Sonoma California

It was our first time in Rocky Point and We're definitly going back!
We had the best time at las Gaviotas it is one of the best resorts i've ever stayed in! Making a reservation is real easy trough Sea Side Mexico, And the front desk staff is really helpful. We Personally recomend Unit 432 it has a great view and it also has dish network.

Stayed July 2006

This was the perfect spot for me and my family to spend our yearly vacations. It is close to town, it is a gated community, great views, great accomodations, great service. the front desk staff was friendly and they even recomended places to go out for dinner and for water activies. We will definetly recommend Las Goviotas for vacations.

We stayed with our family for the 3rd year in a row at Las Gaviotas through Sea Side Rentals in Puerto Penasco. We were sadly disappointed this year and won't be returning. The first condo we had was outright dirty. There were dead/dying cockroaches and crickets everywhere. Many of the "amenities" did not work - cable, regular TV, DVD player, stove burners, washer/dryer, fridge, etc. In some cases this might not be a huge problem but if you take your food (like we did) and expect to be able to cook, it's a problem. So if you don't take food, you have to drive to go into town and eat overpriced food. The pool was GREEN and algae-ridden. We couldn't use it.
So we asked for repairs to be done and they said they would get right on it. We returned to the condo at the end of the day and nothing had been done. So we asked to be moved to another condo. They showed us two. The first one REEKED of smoke & we saw more dead bugs. Enough said. The second one had a faint smell of smoke but was a little bit better. We moved but it wasn't MUCH better. The second bedroom was FREEZING at all times. The doors did not close, much less lock. It was still fairly dirty. We washed dishes before using them.
On the positive side the beach was beautiful - warm water and overall clean. Being outside was certainly a joy. There are vendors on the beach if you want to buy food, bathing suits, hammocks, etc. Lots of shells to collect but be careful of broken glass and other trash that people carelessly leave. Bring water socks to wear on the beach. We spent most of our days at the Mayan Palace resort and enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Overall we had fun because we were together and had a good time. We made the best of it. But we prefer to be in a place that provides all they advertise. We expected better customer service. We will be staying at the Mayan Palace in the future.
