The hotel is near to the beach, if you rent scooters (highly recommended), it takes about a minute to get there. The hotel it self is wonderful, rooms are clean except for one incident where the skin was not draining, but was fixed immediately.
Communication is a bit hard, had an incident where we paid twice for a massage, the massagist insisted we charged it on our room, but I know for a fact that we paid it in cash (the investigation at the reception on whether we paid or not was taking way too long, so we just decided to pay for it rather than miss our flight out. The take away is always ask for a receipt, because miscommunication is ultimately going to happen).
Food is great in the hotel, good variety for breakfast.
We didn't really use the pools, we pretty much were out the whole day, but they seem relaxing.
I think the location is ideal, there are some pubs, restaurants and a small shopping district in the same vicinity and the beach is only a minutes scooter drive away. The only problem is to get to the hotel, there is a very steep hill, if your not in shape, it will take your breath away.
The overall experience at Avista was great, would definitely recommend.
