The room was beautiful, clean, relaxing and equipped with a mini kitchen area. To have all that along with an amazing beautiful ocean view, even through gusty winds and rainy days, the room made all the difference for a wonderful stay. Thank you ICONA

Hotel's Favorite
The Icona in Avalon is our favorite hotel to visit when we are here for a getaway. We typically come for day trips, but when we stay overnight, this is our first choice. My roommate and I were here back in May for Memorial Day weekend, which was nothing but perfect. We returned September 1st up to September 2nd. The room was super clean, all necessary amenities were provided, and the beds were very comfortable! It's great to have a balcony outside the room to check out the view and just to relax peacefully. The pool and spa and bars on site are super convenient to have at one spot. We spent half our time there and the other half at the beach, which was easy access from the hotel. The two days we were there was perfect with the beautiful sunny weather and comfortable temps. Bryan was very helpful when I had reached out to the hotel the night before my arrival and left a message as we were hoping to get an early check-in. He quickly returned my call and left me a message back to say that we can enjoy the amenities while our room is ready if it wasn't upon our arrival. When we arrived around 12:30pm, we were able to get into the room prior to 3pm, which made it easier to settle in and place our belongings in the room for us to enjoy the outdoor life the rest of the trip. The food/drink options are great to have in front of you during the day. I always enjoying the live band performances at the Sand Village bar scene with the fire pits and all to make it look very nice in the evening. We will certainly be back again and hoping to make it a multi night stay as we love it here and to make it last longer. Looking to make one last trip before the September and the summer itself wraps up. As I stated in my last review in May, I am in the hospitality industry myself and enjoy watching the staff in terms of how they treat their guests and go the extra mile to make their stay comfortable and relaxing! Keep up the amazing work you all do! See you soon! Alex Rossi

EVERYTHING about the Icona/Avalon is top notch. It’s beautiful, very well maintained. Everyone at the front desk is very friendly, the restaurant was great and everyone there was friendly also. I felt so pampered being here and I can’t wait to return again soon.

We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding at ICONA Avalon. The venue’s beauty and convenience were perfect for our ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and after-party. Our thanks goes out to Courtney, Kate, and Alyssa. The ICONA wedding planning team met all our needs and ensured that our wedding day was special. They consistently communicated with us, making the planning process way less stressful. On the day of the wedding, Courtney and Kate made sure everything went smoothly as they perfectly coordinated with our wedding planner, Krista.

Our local cheer program had the opportunity to host a fundraiser at the Sand Bar Winter Wonderland ice skating event. Staff was extremely helpful and kind. Outside was beautiful and well kept. I’d recommend hosting events at the ICONA in Avalon!

The ICONA Avalon hosted our company's senior leadership retreat in January 2024. A two-day retreat, the event included lodging, meals, and conference room use. The support from the entire staff at ICONA was exceptional! From the IT support to ensure the conference room was ready to the exceptional meals and the top-notch facility all our needs were met by the attentive and courteous staff. I could not recommend the ICONA more! Thank you for an exceptional experience.

The staff in EVERY area of the complex were exceptional. Keith at the desk, Bryan at the desk. Lizzie as a hostess in the Pub. Our incredible waitresses Sara and Hannah . Dan the manager . All cared about our happiness and satisfaction. The rooms were immaculate and the entire hotel is so well maintained. We ate four meals in the pub and every one of them was terrific. We will be back.
