It was advertised on one of the pet friendly web sites for a great pet friendly establishment which was the reason we chose it. The stay was great but the next day we got in trouble for having a little dog.

The Beachcomber is our choice destination for our annual sister/cousin gathering. We really enjoyed the updated pool/hot tub/patio area! The landscaping was pristine, and the lights in the pool were magical for swimming after the sun went down! It was so nice to be able to swim until 11PM! We loved grilling poolside as well! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Hopefully there will be an elevator in the near future to help all the folks on the 2nd and 3rd floors when they bring all their goodies for their stay. Our room was so comfortable, and this year, we had a larger refrigerator which came in handy for 5 sisters! The beach was only a block away, so that was a plus! I highly recommend this fine place for anyone who travels to Avalon, NJ!

Stayed here last week as part of a family reunion group. We had an efficiency with a pull down Murphy bed and a kitchenette. It was comfortable , although we did not spend much time in the room. Other family members had rented suites and they were plenty roomy enough to accommodate 12 laughing women. The rooms were all very clean, if not a bit dated. My basic complaints were that the bath towels were skimpy and there were no hand towels provided, and no hooks to hang wet towels or clothing on. Also, the room did not have a safe, which was a bit of an inconvenience. There was a coffee maker provided in the room, but no coffee (they charged $2 for packets in the lobby) and they charge a quarter for ice. Go figure?

On the plus side, the location is great and the pool area is just beautiful. We spent a good deal of time hanging out here and were really able to enjoy ourselves. We made use of the grill one night for dinner, which was great.

In spite of the flaws, we liked it so much, we hope to return next year.

The beachcomber was a great experience. We weren't in the room much because we wanted to be at the beach but it was comfortable, updated and an overall great experience! The pool was gorgeous and we loved the idea of being able to grill out while still enjoying the pool.

My wife and I have stayed at the Beachcomber twice and have been vey pleased both times with the experience. The heated pool is nestled between mature trees, giving it a sense of serenity, and large enough to handle a small crowd. There are barbeque grills and tables for eating on the patio to add to the enjoyment. Rooms are very clean, newer sheets and with easy access. The staff is attentive and the location is great, one block from the beach and same distanceto threeor four bars and restuarants. Looking forward to returning

Location, location, location! One block to the ocean, one block to fab stores, restaurants and a club with live music. The newly renovated pool and giant hot tub area is wonderful, even has a lighted waterfall in the evening. Service was top notch, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Stayed in room 110 which is an efficiency with a full size regular bed, which my back appreciated. Appeared that the unit was recently remodeled, it was clean and cheery and has a large flat screen TV. Love that there is no charge for beach tags like there is at most of the rental properties in the area. Highly recommend The Beachcomber Resort, I will be returning!

This has been a fantastic couple of days in Avalon. The Beachcomber is just a block from the beach. There is an assortment of restaurants all in walking distance. Night life also in walking distance. Rooms are immaculate, staff is super friendly. The hot tub is huge and pool is heated. The whole setting in the "backyard" is beautiful. I hate to leave!!!!!!
