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.

The staff was so wonderful to work with. The room was perfect with a small balcony which brought in the breeze. They even have an AC unit to help if it was to warm. The treats throughout the day were the perfect topper to the whole experience. The pie and ice cream was worth the wait!

A little more front desk knowledge on places to go and see and how to make a reservation for a tour if need be. We have been to this property to before and there were never dogs allowed. It is now a dog friendly property. I don't know if that is listed on their website. Despite the rooms being very clean and no trace smell of dog, my nosed was stuffed the entire time. Dogs everywhere! They were leashed and properly maintained. Since the rooms were very well cleaned and smelled great, I would not change to another hotel when in the area because of it. Absolutely love the morning crossiants, lunch time snack of nachos and beer, the evening appetizers with wine and goodies as well as the pie and ice cream they serve in the evening. The also had homemade chocolate chip cookies all day!
