“wonderful food”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Returned from this hotel 30th November and we are already looking at booking again for next November which sums it up.
With cool drinks in reception on arrival, a "continental " breakfast that was anything but continental- HUGE choice including the fullest cooked breakfast imaginable to the exceptional main meals the catering was all excellent.
Rooms were spacious and clean, lovely outdoor pools.
The only negative comment is that the indoor pool/ jacuzzi was extra- expected massage to be charged for but not the pool.
It's an easy 5 minute stroll to the beach and about 20 min to Jandia.
With a car access to the stunning beaches farther afield is easy.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for the time you spent to share your personal impressions on your stay at our IBEROSTAR Playa Gaviotas Park hotel; we always welcome feedback, as it allows us to continually improve the experience we create for our guests.

We lament your disappointment for the extra charge to access the indoor pool and Jacuzzis being part of our Spa Sensations area, however we do have a heated outdoor pool for guests wishing to have a swim when the weather temperatures are cooler.

On the other hand, we greatly appreciate your praising comments on our gastronomy offer because in IBEROSTAR we know that meals are a very important aspect of our guests' overall holiday experience, this is why our professional Chefs strive on a daily basis to prepare a wide variety of typical local dishes as well as the best international delights in order to please all palates, it is very enjoyable to read that we could conquer yours.

We are also grateful for your positive mention on your room, as we want to offer spotless and comfortable accommodations to our guests and ensure an excellent and relaxing rest during their holiday in our hotel.

Thank you again for making us your choice hotel when visiting the area; we look forward to serving you again in our IBEROSTAR hotels in the most beautiful destinations worldwide.

Kindest Regards,

The hotel is typical Iberostar. Good service, spacious rooms and a nice pool. For a little amount we got an upgrade from junior suite to suite, getting a separate bedroom and southside balcony. We stayed for a week having AI.The only minus has been the little too hard mattress, but still we slept well. Two years back we stayed at Iberostart Bouganville on Tenerife where did not like the buffet that much. This time the buffets where excellent, too much to choose and most (at least the hot part) was prepared continously during the time the buffet was available. So freshly cooked and prepared. Some shows were really good, some we did not like, but that's a very personal issue. We do not go back because we almost always go to other places, but we definitely suggest anybody to stay here and enjoy the stay at this hotel. One last thing i'd like to mention, the old tv must be replaced by a new led tv or lcd (flat screen, 32 inch will do).

This is the sixth time we have stayed at this hotel in the last 3 to 4 years. This in itself speaks volumes, for the food / service / cleanliness and helpfulness of the staff.

We have stayed at several other hotels on the Island and in my opinion this is simply the best. In July my son and his family visited the hotel, he has stayed at hotels throughout the world. He was enchanted by the beach and simply loved the food.

Returned yesterday Saturday 16th of November from a 7 days holiday at The Iberostar Gaviotas Park in Jandia and really enjoyed it, all the staff were friendly and helpful and did their best to make sure we were happy with everything, they rang us in the room and came to the door just to ask if everything was ok. The room was cleaned daily and towels changed and the food was excellent, We had one problem which was our own fault having left the patio door open all night on the first night and we were plagued by Mosquitos,both of us got around 30 bites, after that we slept with the door closed but the air conditioning wasn't very effective, I reported it to reception and they checked it out twice but it still didn't blow cold, they fitted us a plug in device to try and stop the mozzies and other than the odd one we didn't have any more problems, we were on the second floor and there was a tree right outside which is probably where they came from, it didn't spoil the holiday as it cools down at night this time of year but it mite have if it had been mid summer. It's a nice place to go if you are looking for a nice hotel in a quiet resort

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a sea view

A really wonderful hotel on the permanently sunny Jandia peninsular. The hotel has all the key ammemeties you would expect for a resort (3 swimming pools, large restaurant, gym, spa and access to the facilities if the neighbouring Iberostar Playa Gaviotas resort) - be careful when booking though as it can be confusing when booking which resort you asre actually in.

The resort is at most a 3minute walk to the beach, and a 40min walk from the nearest town.

The choice and quality of food and drink is excellent with something for even the most picky eaters every lunch and night (the ability to poor your own drinks is very useful at reducing waiting tines during the busy periods!).

The daytime and evening activities are fine for a resort of this size (3 or 4 things on each day and a show in the evening).

Overall a great place to catch some sun - if you're looking for a base to do things out of consider somewhere more in the north, but for somewhere to relax and get some sun (even in November when we went it was warm enough to be outside in swimwear) this place is hard to beat at this price.

Room Tip: Don't be fooled by "sea side view" this means if you lean over you balcony and look to...

From the time we arrived till the time we left this hotel was amazing. We stayed from 5th October till the 19th and loved every day. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Reception staff, restaurant staff, cleaning staff, bar staff,always had time for you and made you so welcome. Entertainment team worked their socks off and each night spent time chatting to you after shows. Shows were of a good variety and activities during the day were also great. Food was always piping hot and lovely presented in the restaurant. We couldn't fault anything and would definitely recommend it. We will definitely return. Thanks to all concerned for a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: 5th floor looking out to sea was lovely.

Spent one week here last week in august with my daughter.
Hotel has a great location on a fabulous stretch of beach, fabulous place to relax. Not far from centre of Jandia about 5mins by taxi and only a few euros.
Rooms very clean and spacious, fridge in room with bottled water, clean towels daily in good sized bathroom. We had a side sea view room with a small balcony but did not spend much time in room so okay.
Food was varied and always hot. Drinks in main restaurant were good too. Never had to queue for food. Staff always on hand to remove plates which you had finished with.
Drinks in bar very good measures and all staff helpful.
Sunbeds always available even though it was school hols could always get a sunbed at all times of the day. Although you could not reserve beds before 9am , this rule was applied daily.
Had a look at the spa but did not use it although it looked inviting.
We stayed here for a chill out week which is what we had.
We walked up the beach towards the lighthouse each morning and then relaxed for the rest of the
day.
You could use the facilities of the gaviotas playa and although we walked through it once to get
to the beach we found the park was okay for us.
We had a great week, staff always willing to help, nothing was too much trouble.
Overall we had an enjoyable week and would recommend to anyone looking for a good hotel in
quiet location on a fantastic stretch of beach.

Room Tip: side sea view rooms were good.
