I had seen Avila from a tanker offshore years ago, I always wanted to see it from the shore. It was great! Nice rooms, each with a view. Discount for golf next door. Easy access to the beach. The room and pool were clean. We will be back for a longer stay.

We could not have been happier in our room, with the service and certainly with the surroundings. Breakfast was superb, staff friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to awaken to the sound of the ocean, and head to the "galley" for a healthy breakfast. Bravo!

We just got back from a two night stay and everything about this hotel was amazing. If I could rate it higher than a 5, I would.The location was great, right on the beach and the rooms were so cozy and decorated so cute. Beds were very comfy. The staff at this hotel was so helpful, they provided us with... More

I had entered the #centralcoasting contest via Instagram. One of my photos was chosen as the winner, and I was contacted by the marketing director Lori. I was told I could choose any Martin Resorts location to receive a free 1-night stay. I was so excited, telling everyone I know I had won a chance to relax after the VERY... More

We paid top $ for the holiday weekend. Good for regular price, but not $400 a night. Shower head not functioning well and hot tub Luke warm. Beautiful location and walking distance to all sops and restaurants!😊

We stayed 2 nights there and absolutely loved it. Rooms were very clean and nicely appointed. Beds were comfortable, and towels, linens and robes were nice quality. The grounds were immaculate and it seemed like someone was always walking around sweeping or attending to something to keep it that way. And the location....well, you can't get any closer to the...

Stayed one night but would liked to have stayed longer. Clean, modern rooms with all amenities. While there were just two of us, the suite would easily handle four. The pool is glass enclosed and was in use in January. Staff was great.

I'll admit, I was worried about this hotel after I booked it. I usually steer towards known brands where I can expect a certain level of cleanliness and updated rooms, but this one had great customer review, so I gave it a shot. We spent 2 weeks all over California and I wasn't even familiar with Avila Beach. We stayed... More

We stayed here for a quiet post-New Years getaway and were pleased. The complex is well-landscaped; and the suite was nicely appointed. Even though our room was at the street corner it was reasonably quiet. Although there were families w/ children playing on sidewalks and in the pool during the day, the noise level was not noticeable. There are wine-tasting... More

This is truly a family hotel, kids every where during the summer months. Two bedroom suites with a private patio. Nice breakfast. Plenty to do for the kids, and you are on the sand. Nothing like a summer stay, ocean front room, falling asleep to the crashing of the waves with the ocean air.
