“Right on the ocean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2010

Las Gaviotas was right on the ocean. It had a large open air restaurant and bar that looked out across the pool and then the ocean. Even though it was during the Christmas holidays the place was very quiet and we didn't see hardly any other guests. It is on the south side of town and you would need a car there. We took a look at a couple of the other Golfito hotels listed on this site and we were glad we chose this hotel. The grounds, pool and eating area are spectacular. The rooms were decent although a mini fridge or something would have been nice. The hotel was an excellent price for what you got. The owners are a family and had the TV on loudly in the lobby much of the time. We finally asked them to turn it down and they did. No one speaks much english. The restaurant menu looks limited and almost American but the food was great. For $5 we had squid and clam ceviche and fresh baked buns. PS This is not near Playa Tortuga, that is a mistake.

Have stayed 3 times. Locally owned, great view and helpful staff. Great dining on patio by the pool.

Not for hyper types. Every thing is laid back as it should be.
