Why We Love This Hotel

  • Filled with character, transporting guests to a 19th-century Mexican village
  • All rooms have a two-person Jacuzzi, free Wi-Fi and fireplace
  • Member-favorite hotel -- more than 95% of visitors say they love it
  • Set a block from the sand


With intricate stained glass windows, tiled floors and designs inspired by traditional Spanish and Mexican architecture, Avila La Fonda Hotel transports guests to a 19th-century Mexican village with charm at every turn. 

Although the hotel does not feature a pool, walk just 50 steps to Avila Beach, which, according to Fodor's, gets "more sun and less fog than any other stretch of coast in the area." Be sure to take advantage of the beach chairs offered for easy relaxation on the sand. Guests can also take a dip in the Jacuzzi tubs -- big enough for two -- available in all rooms. After a soak, cozy up in front of the fireplace and nibble on snacks from the complimentary welcome basket with assorted snacks, water and beverages.

Continue to indulge in countless culinary delights throughout the stay. Start each day right with gourmet coffee and chocolate croissants in the morning. Freshly baked pie from locally renowned Avila Valley Barn is served every evening from 8-10 p.m., while hors d'oeuvres, scrumptious desserts and two varieties of wine from a local winery each month are offered at the wine reception held every evening from 5-6:30 p.m. Be sure to leave some room for the nacho bar held daily from 12-2 p.m., accompanied by beer and fresh local salsa. Last but not least, visit the Chocolate Pantry, which sells assorted snacks and beverages 24 hours a day.

What an amazing place. Staff was always helpful, rooms were perfect, close to the beach, and all the food and beverage additions were above and beyond anything we’ve experienced. Thanks for making our girls getaway so memorable

Great snack and food options, charming ambiance, convenient to local points of interest. If our room had been better maintained, we would have likely overlooked the midnight disturbance created by raucous guests.
Other Comments
We've enjoyed previous stays, but this visit was disappointing. First, our bathroom sink was nearly completely clogged; however, we didn't realize it until late in the evening so we had to use the tub as an alternate. We were awakened at 12:30 am by screeching coming from the lobby. This continued for about 30 minutes until someone yelled at the unruly guests to "shut up." The following morning, we discovered that our double shower only worked on one side. That was the third strike so we'll likely choose a beachfront hotel for our next stay in Avila Beach.

Great location. The staff was terrific. The different times for the various "happy hours" was such fun because we got to know the other guests. It really turned out to be a party atmosphere!

My only comment that was somewhat negative was the room location. Would definitely ask for a balcony next time

Other Comments
The particular room we were in was right next to the main lobby. We could hear everything going on in the lobby. The tile floors in the lobby were very loud when delivery’s were being made. The person in the room above us was heavy footed and we could hear them as they walked throughout their room.
