Rooms & Rates

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, which features Coronitas and fresh-fruit margaritas. Last but not least, visit the Chocolate Pantry, which sells assorted snacks and beverages 24 hours a day.

The only thing I was a little disappointed in..I thought we were getting a balcony with chairs we could sit out on. But other than that great.

The package deal with TravelZoo combined with the extra amenities provided by the hotel were exceptional.

I had some misgivings because I had read some negative reviews about this hotel. But I think people just want to complain! The only suggestion I would have is that the air conditioner is noisy, and if you are a light sleeper, it may wake you up.

Hospitality. First, there was a small box of chocolate and chilled champagne waiting for us in the room. Then, they had fresh baked croissant early in the morning, followed by fresh baked cookies for snacking, and fresh baked pies at eight in the evening. Upon check out, they offered us a choice chocolate candies or a tile from the hotel as a souvenir.
