You know how Grandmas house always has snacks ready and grandma is serving food every couple hours? How she is always asking do you need anything and wants to make sure you know you are special to her? That is exactly how Avila la Fonda treats their guests. The level of hospitality and generosity is beyond anything I've ever experienced...

Everything thing the reviews say is true. The staff is fantastic. Lindsay could not be more helpful and obviously enjoys her job. To bad she's not cute. Loved Mary Beth. Very sweet and really fun to talk to. She's from Chicago and knows her music ! Went with another couple and we came to the conclusion that the fantastic rooms,...

From the time we arrived and received a basket full of wonderful goodies to the time we departed and were given a going away gift, the customer service was absolutely amazing! There was an early evening happy hour which included wine, and a variety of yummy appetizers. Wait – it gets better! Later in the evening, ice cream and pie...

The little town is perfect and sits on a beautiful bay. You can shop, eat, drink, stroll the beach, or best of...

Hot croissants, organic orange juice and fresh coffee for breakfast. Then at noon, Coronas and nachos, including grated cheese, salsa, guacamole, etc. Fix a plate of them however...
