Picture Postcard Town and Beach. A beautiful Sandy Beach, A Pier, with Cliffs on each end, giving it a secluded, almost Island like feel. Just the right number of local shops and restaurants to make you feel you were part of something special and not lost in a large commercial development. The hotel grounds were perfect and intimate. The pool was right at the edge of the beach front.. Free, convenient parking. We hated to leave.

Summer delight!

Spent 4 days with our 7 year old granddaughter! She had a delightful time and wanted to stay longer. Lots of "kid friendly" activities, pool, beautiful beach ( just right for boogie boarding), giant checker game....cute gifts shops, playground next to the complex and the pier provided enough for her to do. Lovely rooms - clean, comfortable beds...the kitchenette is a real plus when traveling with a child. We will definitely be back. Avila beach, though small... is beautiful!

Charming beachside hotel perfect for families

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, beachside, golf near, kids playground near
This hotel was the perfect throwback to the beachside motels of yesterday but was brand new, comfortable and very accomodating. It sits right across the boardwalk from a great family beach in a charming old school beach town with a newly refurbished kind of feel. Good restaurants and gift shops too. Great for an extended weekend with your kids. They also have concerts on the beach at certain times of the year. Can't wait to go back!
