The resort itself is very well manicured, has a great pool and spa overlooking the ocean (although the Jacuzzi was having "heat" issues"). The lobby is great, there is a book with all the local restaurants menus, a game closet to check out board games, and a little grocery store.
The best thing about Avila is the location. It is about a 20 minute drive to Morro Bay, a 10 minute drive to San Luis Obispo, with a great Thursday night farmers market, and Pismo Beach along with others are all within easy access.
The only problem we had was with a toilet that was literally shaking the room with trapped air or something at 2am the first night, and no one from maintenance was available until 7am the next morning. But they were there first thing and got it fixed right away. Overall the entire resort was very clean and well laid out. We will definitely be returning.

The unit was fine for 2 adults and a child but I wouldn't cram 4
adults in the 542sq ft space. Well equiped kitchen with service for
4, generous with the cooking gear and actually had sharp knives!
Welcome pack of coffee, creamer and sugar. Dishwasher detergent and
dishwashing liquid were also provided as well as coffee filters for
the week. The bathroom was very large in relation to the unit size.
It was a country mile to the elevators though and we used the stairs
in our wing often to and from the pool area.
The space is well set up and decorated nicely with no readily
apparent wear. The only strange thing was there was no bureau in the
bedroom so you have to make do with the TV cabinet drawers in the
bedroom and living area.
The pool area is very nicely done with separate kiddie pool and small
spa all of which are heated to about 80 degrees. Nice glass walled exercise room overlooking the pool and an arcade/game room. The pool area is
designed with low buildings surrounding it to cut the breezes from

Activities included a welcome continental breakfast on Saturday, all
sorts of Easter activities for the children, winery tours and the San
Luis Obispo market. There are movie nites in the owners' lounge and
games that you can borrow.
SLB is ideal for a romantic getaway or for families. Avila Beach is
what you make it. There is golfing, tennis and beach right at or very
near the resort. There is a 3 star quality restaurant. Everything
else is a drive, including a supermarket. Absolutely gorgeous area
and we would go back but Avila is by no means a "happening" place. It
is romantic and quiet and an ideal location for a relaxing vacation.
We would give San Luis Bay Inn Resort an 8 because of its isolation
and distance from major airports (225 miles from SFO, 200 miles from
