Outstanding hotel experience
Reviewed 3 hours ago

This was my third stay at Avila La Fonda. I've enjoyed each visit and look forward to my next stay. Staff is friendly and professional. Check-in was easy, staff came to our room a couple hours after check-in and offered us ice and chocolate, and the kitchen servers always made us feel welcome, especially at breakfast. The property is well-maintained and clean. Location is excellent -- just a few minutes to walk to the beach. Friday night Farmer's Market was a treat with live music. The beds, pillows and linens were all comfortable. The community snacks really encourage socializing, and we met the nicest people over morning croissants, afternoon nachos and evening pie. We missed the wine and appetizers both nights on this stay, but enjoyed the complimentary wine tasting at Alapay Cellars just steps from the hotel. This is a really special property and we'll definitely visit again.

We will definitely return

This hotel was very welcoming, and you can tell that the owners and staff really thought through all of the details. We always felt like we had what we needed when we needed it without having to ask anyone. Our room had a whirlpool tub, lovely balcony, mini fridge, and microwave. We enjoyed the different gatherings they had throughout the day. They left us champagne in our fridge on arrival and a gift basket of snacks. The location was great. We were super relaxed and would absolutely stay again.

Really cute hotel

Had issues at check in due to secret escapes not processing correctly but the hotel dealt with it very well.

Wine and snacks was a nice touch after a long drive.

Room was good although hot... everything was very clean and overall a nice experience.

This is absolutely the best hotel with so many amenities included. We start with fresh croissants & coffee. At noon it’s nacho bar with Mexican beers. 5 o’clock is Happy Hour with appetizers & local winery wines. THEN at 8 o’clock is pies from local bakeries with coffees! You can’t beat it! The beachside town is so quaint & the hotel just 1 block from the beach front. Such an amazing experience anyone would want to try!

Charming little boutique hotel

We really loved our stay at La Fonda Avila! Lulu and Emmalee and rest of the staff were amazing. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were stocked with a basket of snacks and were well appointed with plates, utensils and anything else you needed. They were clean and very comfortable plus close to the beach. It had an old world charm that we loved. There were fresh croissants, nachos, pies , wine etc. every day. We will definitely come back!!
