This is a beautiful hotel. It has a modern-fresh aesthetic. Perched right on the ocean. Clean. Good food. Loved the pool, which looks out onto the ocean, with a view of the old fort on the left, and cliffs/walking trails on the right. We like that you could order meals/drinks from poolside. We noticed that if we stayed along the board walk where there were other hotels that it would have been a lot louder late into the night. This hotel was quiet in the evening. Staff extremely attentive to our requests.
Note that to tip, you need to do it in cash. Pool can get fairly crowded during the daytime as you would expect during the summer high season.
The fitness center, pools and location.
The food at buffet and the restaurant experience including waiters was below average
The location is unquestionably remarkable. Except if you are in the villas it’s a long walk to the beach but the view from the higher villas are spectacular. But the walk from the villas to the dining area and other facilities is not convenient.
The rooms are not well maintained. Broken shower knobs, blocked sinks, broken, squeaky beds, dirty couches with cigarette burn holes. The food is not the best on the property. Breakfast is OK but don’t spend money on lunches and dinners just take breakfast included. You have plenty of amazing dining options within walking distance. Astoria hotel food just a 30 seconds walk away is far far better and it’s all affordable. The elevators are too slow and only 2 elevators catering to a big property. Parking is too tight and if you come in late you will have to park outside on the street. Most of the staff is good and polite but I had a bad experience at check out. The lady said there is a 3 euro for a Coca Cola missing from mini bar. The fact is we didn’t use the mini bar and I politely tried to explain to the lady that we didn’t use the mini bar. But her attitude was brash and very customer unfriendly. She insisted saying my colleague checked the mini bar he said it’s not there. I said fine you can charge us but we are not lying and besides for someone paying 3200 euros plus 3 euros is nothing but her attitude to handle the situation was extremely poor and that is where the entire experience went from just so so to very unpleasant. Customer service is the corner stone of any hospitality experience. It was a bad call and for that one reason alone I will not be going back to Avala again. I am a seasoned traveler and a regular one...my frequent flyer miles speak for my travel habits. If there is one thing I have learnt through experience is that no matter how big or flashy the property it is at the end of the day the people that make or break your experience. Last word is don’t spend your money on staying here because it is expensive and NOT Value for money. There are hundreds of other great options better rooms and awesome views nearby. Stay there and walk down to the Avala beach and spend the day there for 30 euros.
Food was tasty and amazing.
I do not remember.
Fantastic pool and facilities with a really good gym. Our room was amazing and we were given an upgrade on arrival. Staff were really efficient and friendly. Great range of bars around the hotel to suit all tastes. The views are lovely and the location is perfect. Definitely recommend this hotel.
Could do with more vegetarian options in the restaurant. A coffee machine or kettle in the room would be nice too.
