AVILA LA FONDA HOTEL

Avila La Fonda Hotel was built with early Mexico-California themes in mind. The hotel's architect discovered a book written in 1928 by two young draftsmen who studied old houses throughout small Mexican towns. Several houses from the book are replicated in the hotel's San Miguel Street façade, from a casa in Taxco to a 16th-century dwelling on the Plaza Grande. Each of the veneers features a variety of stucco, roof tiles, railings and colors that provides the building with the appearance of a village. When you enter La Fonda's massive wood doors, you notice the soaring rock fireplace and the two-story tile mural of Avila Beach's distinctive shoreline. Five stained glass windows depict Avila's hillsides, and flood the lobby with warm, colorful light, while eight large Mexican tin star lights produce hundreds of twinkling spots across the ceiling. Mexican folk art, early Californian artifacts and paintings can be found throughout the hotel, as well as over 25 stained glass windows.

The Owner's Suite is outstanding, featuring a one-bedroom one and a half bath layout, with a full luxury kitchen, Murphy bed and pull out couch, and two balconies. Perfect for a Thanksgiving celebration. The main bedroom's bathroom is fantastic featuring a jetted tub, separate spa shower and...a full sauna. Yes, a sauna. The Family Suite is great too, but while we are very quiet travelers, we think the notice of "Quiet Time", after 10pm is a little much.

La Fonda also offers delicious complimentary afternoon and evening receptions. Good Mornings: fresh baked Chocolate and plain Croissant baskets, coffee, teas, and Orange Juice. Manager's reception featuring local wines, hors d' oeuvres and Late Night Delights with Lynn's Fresh Pies served at 8 PM. They also feature complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas, a 24 hour pantry with sodas, chips and snacks. You are also provided with a welcome basket upon entering your room stocked full of sodas, water, healthy and fun snacks. These kinds of touches are what makes Avila La Fonda our top Avila Beach hotel.
