Disclaimer: (We travelled here in Dec 2017 and I thought Ii’d done my review of Avila with my other ones, and could only select back as far as Feb 2018. I dont believe a few weeks will impact my review in any way.) My husband and I travelled here specifically for a snorkeling

Beautiful beaches on two sheltered ocean lagoons,with many loungers in sun and in shade. Infinity pool by the beach with a shower. We liked the evening musical entertainment on the beach and a Thursday night blues band at one of three restaurants on premises. Special Saturday

Beautiful resort. Locally owned. When we went over the holidays the hotel was at full capacity and you never felt it! There were always beach chairs available at any time of day. There was always space at the bar. The staff was extremely friendly. Prices were more expensive

Debbie, there are a few up charges for certain items like steak. But only if you're certain you'll be eating nearly all of your meals at the resort would I recommend using the meal plan. There are a surprising number of very good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel for dinner. Plus you can take the bus out front to some other resorts with lots of great lunch and dinner selections. Totally your call but we were glad we didn't use the meal plan and still ate 3 or 4 times at the beach bar for lunch and at the restaurants for dinner along with jazz night

All rooms have been designated as non-smoking rooms. Smoking is not allowed in the Ocean Front Blues wing, including boardwalk and balconies. Smoking is however still allowed on the balcony of the Octagon rooms and the (newly renovated) La Belle Alliance rooms & apartments, but only if the balcony door is closed so that smoke will not enter the room. We look forward to welcoming you to the Avila Beach Hotel!

Absolutely. It should be fine. If the waters outside of their beach area are rough, find are more helpful. But if you guys are strong swimmers it should make no difference. Avila is affiliated with a nearby dive shop where you could rent the find if you're staying for a while. Hope that helps.

Hi Sara, it is always recommended to make dinner reservations to avoid disappointments. Our team of both the Blues Bar & Restaurant and also Restaurant The Pen will always make the effort to accommodate our guests as much as possible but if the restaurants are fully booked it will be a disappointment to be waiting for a table and why it is recommended to do so. We hope to have informed you sufficiently.

How is the snorkeling from the Avila Beaches?
The Avila Beach Hotel offers nice snorkeling opportunities with beautiful coral reefs and a colorful under water life. If you would like to venture outside the Avila Beach Hotel there are also beautiful spots on the west side of the island.
