My husband and I wanted to get a way for a couple days and we happened on to Avila La Fonda's website. We have been to Avila Beach for day trips and so were interested. We checked out other hotels in the area and they were more then we were willing to spend for a night. We loved what the website had to offer and so booked a room. The minute we stepped in we fell in love with the place! It has beautiful old world charm, a warm atmosphere and very inviting. We felt the same way once inside the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We went at an off time and so they upgraded our room for free. Make sure you know what a Murphy bed is before you book. Some of the rooms offer them. These are not your run of the mill rooms. It felt like we were the only ones there and maybe we were since it was the middle of January! It had a flat screen tv over the fireplace, balcony, and spacious bathroom with a large bathtub....very inviting!! You have to see it to appreciate it. We will go back to this place in the future and have already recommended it to many friends. It is a bit off the beaten path but so worth the drive!
