"Very nice resort on the beach with amazing views."
Upon arriving we were greeted, checked in and bags were brought to our room. From the front of resort you may get the wrong impression that resort doesn't have a nice ambience but once you go inside you'll be pleasantly surprised. Amazing views, great layout, extremely relaxing environment #amazingpics.
PROS: Well maintained resort, amazing views, relaxing atmosphere, great bartender "ask for Genesis, she's a doll and makes a killer calypso sunrise" food was good, can view sunset from restaurants, bar, pool, beach, tower, just about anywhere on resort. Centrally located. Overall great experience, would recommend, will return.
CONS: The only negative was I reserved a room with a king bed and was assigned a double full. It was my wife's birthday and I had requested wine and flowers to be in room upon arriving. Initially they did not deliver. We were told we could switch rooms the following day however we were there for two nights and would not have time to enjoy the room. Also, condensation cause floors to be damp mostly when a/c was off. A few mosquitos but nothing a little bug repellent can resolve.
RESOLVING THE NEGATIVE: After hearing my concerns, we were given a room (within the 30 min.) w/balcony, king size bed w/direct view of beach and garden. Amazing view!!! Room had birthday wishes in pedals across desk with chilled wine and two glasses. They made us smile. Robert, I believe one of the managers did a great job at making sure we were happy.
Stay at Avila.
