Wife and I visited Avila La Fonda this past weekend for her birthday celebration. Everyone was nice and welcoming. As stated in all the reviews, there was constantly food in the kitchen for everyone to share. We arrived just in time for the wine reception and had a glass of wine and some food.
The food served here is all costco food and while it's good, it's nothing to write home about. The room was nice, and we had a little slice of cake in the fridge for wife's bday, that was very nice. we took advantage of the snack bar and had some 25cent sodas.
We had an upstairs jacuzzi room right next to the ice machine and laundry room. the first thing i noticed was the AC, it was one of those portable units and was extremely loud.
The reason why I'm giving this place two stars is because the bed was extremely soft. We did not get any sleep all weekend due to the soft bed along with the super loud AC.
Despite all the amenities, it was a pretty miserable vacation due to the fact that we were not able to get any sleep. At $400/night, that is just not acceptable.
