Lovely 3 night stay at the Avalon. Great personal service you won't get in a larger hotel. Three floors with 6 rooms per floor - no elevator so you will get your exercise going up and down - especially with bags in hand. Great rooftop has lounge chairs, BBQ grill, tables and chairs. A great place to open a bottle of wine and soak up the sun and the views. Lovely courtyard patio below which is where continental breakfast buffet is set up all within lush gardens, with bubbling fountain and fire pit. Rooms are spacious, well appointed. Loved the tangerine body butter and body scrub! Our towels were rough and slightly "worn" and would have expected a little nicer quality in this type of boutique hotel. We were on the 3rd floor and Wifi was sporadic if we could get it at all. I think they should consider a Wifi booster! Down in the little lobby reception was good. Location of hotel is excellent - easy walk to shops, restaurants and beach.
A return trip will be in our future!
