We stayed at the Avila Lighthouse Suites in August. Even though we were a couple of months before that in booking, everything was booked, and we ended up getting the rate through Expedia, but it was the same rate that was on their website...anyway it was extremely expensive for what it is, although what it is certainly is clean, roomy and nice.
After reading reviews here I emailed and requested a second floor room. When I didn't receive a reply I called. They had already made the change and when I noted that it was because we would have an elderly relative with us they thoughtfully gave us a room near the elevator. The staff was very helpful throughout.
I used the spa, and while it was very small and dim, that's fine as all you're doing is going into a tiny massage room. Prices there were competitive with other spas.
There indeed were tons of children at the place but they were not all that noisy. Walls are thin though - did hear neighbors yakking at 4 AM.
As for the dreaded foldout bed, we came prepared with a pillow and afghan and said elderly relative slept on it without opening it. She had the best night's sleep she'd had in days. Granted, she's tiny, but after reading the reviews I think if there's only one other person it would behoove them to sleep on it folded up!
Really thought I wouldn't like the nautical decor but it was bright and cheery and actually quite charming. Loved the printed window shades.
Location is great; pool and spa are across street from beach and only accessible with hotel key card.
