We have just returned from spending a week at the Avila where we had a very relaxing break. Our room was in the Blues wing which is in a great location away from the main hotel buildings. However like the previous reviewer said we felt the room was fine but rather tired and could do with a bit of refurbishment. Bedlinen rather shabby and not changed for the whole week, although towels were changed daily. Some of the external wood work showeed signs of rot and needed repairing,our room had a wood jam to secure the patio door.
The beach area near the blues rooms has some of the best shade but that part of the beach wasn't cleaned the whole time we were there.
We ate in both restaurants and had good experiences . Plenty of choice for buffet breakfast.
The majority of the staff are friendly but there are a number who give the impression of being rather unhelpful and would greatly benefit from a bit of customer care training. In particular checking process and room allocation. Saying that we had a nice time and enjoyed the quietness of the location.
