Hey guys, today I want to talk about my experience at the Avila Beach Hotel. I literally think, this was one the best hotel I’ve ever been to. Lovely interior, lovely staff, lovely location, so on and so on. Are you reading along for all of the details?
About Avila Beach Hotel
Around 1780 the original building of the hotel (only the main entrance and lobby) was built. In the late 1780’s towards the early 181o’s (wide time frame I know, I coudn’t something more specific) they placed a second octagonal building (Octagon) beside the main building by the sea.
From the beginning of the early 20th century the building found it’s purpose as a boarding school for boys, until 1920. That’s when they closed it down when the founder of this place died. 1929 was the year that the owner split up the building into different apartments, a couple years later in 1940 the new owner turned it into a private hospital.
Hotel Avila, opened it’s doors for the first time on February the 1th in 1949. Ten years later they opened the beach for public and renamed it the Avila Beach Hotel. After then, they kept expanding and improving het hotel with new wings and bars.
As you can see, this hotel has a very rich history. I fell in love with this hotel even more.
We has the Octagon Superior room with garden and sea view. They upgraded us by arrival from partial sea view to full sea view for free! SO SWEET, thank you guys. Our room was equipped with a large very comfortable bed, a bathroom with a shower and a gorgeous view from our balcony.
Every day they putted some new Rituals products in the bathroom, so nice, we didn’t come short that’s for sure.
Our lovely view! Behind the palm trees, you can see the sea. In real life you can see it much better, believe me. It’s a gorgeous and romantic view.
We fell in love with this hotel, the second we stept inside. Every inch of it is gorgeous, the staff members are very nice and helpful.
The first picture is an image of the lobby.
This was one of the first things we saw we left the lobby, such a cute little square.
When you walk past the square above, you can go to the beach imidiately and you will cross the Schooner bar. This is were we order a few lovely cocktails during our evening’s here.
On the pier there was this great restaurant called the Blues Bar, we ate here on the first night we arrived. We had some amazing burgers that we could put together our selves and fries. On the other side of the pier there was another private beach that belonged to the hotel.
They even have an infinity pool. It doesn’t really look like it on this picture. But when you are in the pool it looks like the sea is extended to it. Lovely spot to float around with a cocktail in your hand and just relax.
This was the amazing view of the private beach and the Blues Bar from The Ocean Front Blues tower. They build this part of the hotel in 1995, from all of the rooms you can see the sea all around you. This could be a lovely place to stay for your honeymoon.
As you can see we adored every second of our stay here, if you want to stay at the hotel during your whole stay, that’s just fine. There are a lot of beautiful spots to spend your day. We are pretty adventurous so we decided to visit some cool sights as well. Are you curious about what we did beside relaxing at this resort?
