Why We Love It

  • 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 -- 99% 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 8-10pm, while appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, two verities of wine from a local winery each month, and scrumptious desserts are offered at the wine reception held every evening from 5pm-6:30pm. Be sure to leave some room for the nacho bar held daily from 12-2pm, 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.

Location was wonderful and the pampering we received by staff along with the thoughtfulness of the planned food and drinks. We have never stayed anywhere that was so giving of gifts and they provided such a relaxed atmosphere. The staff acted like they wanted to be there not just a job.
