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.

We had asked for one of their nicer rooms since it was my husband’s 70th birthday but got first floor room with your balcony. I complained but nothing was done about it.

Quiet, peaceful atmosphere in a tranquil setting was perfect for rest and relaxation.

Only one complaint ( the reason for the 4 star rating of the room) was the older spring mattress. A newer foam mattress would have provided much better support. In fact, it was so uncomfortable, it would be a factor (the ONLY factor) that would give pause to rebooking at this adorable hotel.

The fireplace, the softness of the bed sheets, the personal touches (gift basket, room journals, socials, wine tastings). I would have loved to try the jacuzzi tub but was only there a short time. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Other Comments
The only compaint I have is that our room was on the first floor next to the lobby restroom and the door slammed often in the early morning hours (I'm assuming it was that door and not the door of our neighbor). If we had stayed longer I would have mentioned it to the staff.
