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.

Overall, great accommodations & staff were very friendly. It only if it could get views from the balcony without exposing whole room inside to public & crossed the street, be perfect.

From the time we checked in we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Their customer service was excellent. One thing they certainly do is feed you well. Pastries in the morning, nachos at noon, wine and food in the afternoon and pie and ice cream at night - all excellent. We will definitely be coming back!!

My husband and I stayed to celebrate our 4th anniversary and we absolutely loved Avila La Fonda. We will be staying again maybe next time with the kids and or maybe another getaway for ourselves. It was such a treat!
