Avila is not big. Few resturants, lots of shops, few bars With that said Lighthouse Suites is in the middle of it all Most rooms have Ocean view which is across street. Nice pool spa area. Can be pricey in season. Rooms are very nice. Stay here. You will like it

We are a family of four and stayed for only one night but the hotel was great. The rooms are nice and big, the only drawback was the air conditioning didn't work very well if at all. The town of Avila is small but super clean with some great little shops and restaurants . We had a nice time and... More

This was our first time in Avila Beach and the Lighthouse Suites turned out to be an excellent choice. It is right on the beach and within walking distance of several very good restaurants, coffee houses and the local golf course. The room was large and well-appointed. My only criticism (minor) is that the breakfast room is not large enough... More

We got the best master suite at the hotel and it was so worth it. It was quiet, upstairs, and we got to sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. Very clean and beautiful property! I would stay here again with family and friends. Good breakfast in the morning as well.

We stayed at the Lighthouse Suites for one night (2 adults/2 kids) and couldn't fault it. The room was clean and comfortable with a fun nautical theme. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was amazing - something for everyone, including freshly made waffles! Our nine year-old was in heaven! We enjoyed the pool although it is quite small and...

My husband and I have been coming to Avila for years and have stayed at most of the hotels there. This hotel is officially our favorite. We enjoyed another hotel (I'm biting my tongue and not saying which one) a few times, but were rudely mistreated when trying to book a long weekend for our wedding. The Avila Lighthouse Suites...

Great play structure next door. Beach is across a street but very safe crossing. Nice size pool, heated, max depth 4 feet. Rooms nicely decorated in nautical theme. Quiet rooms, and can open the sliding door to deck to hear the surf at night. Breakfast is better than advertised, make a waffle, hard boiled eggs, etc. Only 1 block to... More

This was an overnight stop for us. The hotel rooms are spacious and nice balcony to enjoy the view of the ocean. Not as romantic as we hoped for but great for families! The hotel has easy parking and carts available right by the elevator, to haul your stuff to your room….If you don't have kids with you, there are... More

This place will not disappoint. The cleanliness and décor of the grounds reminded me of a Disney resort. Very well maintained. Amenities were great and the staff very friendly and attentive. The beach and local area are also great, much cleaner and refined than the beach to the south.
