A gem on Ocean Drive

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This hotel is a gem and I sincerely hope it's character it preserved. It's a quiet oasis on a bustling part of Ocean Drive and I love it for its old world charm. It feels like it's been in the family for decades - from another era. Although some of the room décor may be outdated and the bathrooms a little small, the character of the Avalon more than makes up for its shortcomings. Five happy nights at the hotel in April and I will be booking the next time I am back in South Beach. A personalized treat and I hope those are entrusted with the hotel maintain its spirit.

A GEM in the heart of South Beach!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My wife and I could not have been happier in this iconic little gem. From the genuine warm welcome at reception desk each and every day to the impeccably clean accommodations. We were impressed with the newly renovated room with beach front views. The Restaurant, Fish called Avalon on the property may honestly be the best food and service I ever experienced. I say this having lived in nyc all my life, so I like to think I know a bit about great restaurants.

The complimentary breakfast included was good and just right for your morning start.

Highly recommend and look forward to my return in May.

Thank you to the entire team of the Avalon Hotel for a memorable experience!

Great location, great breakfast, great staff & great price.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

5+ stars! Room was small, but it didn't matter because we were only in the room to sleep (bed was comfortable). Staff was very friendly & very helpful. They stored some fish I caught on a charter in their freezer until I left 2 days later. The included breakfast was plentiful & delicious with eggs & a meat. Beach chairs in your room & beach towels at the front desk for you to take across the street to the beautiful beach. No need for a rental car as everything you want is a short walk away. I highly recommend the Avalon and will stay there again.

Our Home away from home

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This is our third time at the fantastic Avalon Hotel and it is not coincidental that we return over and over again. The magnificent and impeccable Team always ready to help, the convenience of being across the street from the beach and the beautiful, comfortable, quiet and recently remodeled ocean front rooms are some of the reasons why we keep coming back. The Hotel is a classic Art Deco gem in the heart of Ocean Dr. and walking distance from restaurants, bars and museums. The Award winning restaurant on site “ A Fish Called Avalon” is a must and the best by far seafood restaurant in South Beach. Specially thanks to Julio, Camilo and Team for making our stay unforgettable while we were celebrating our Anniversary ❤️

Summer getaway

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

The Avalon is a nice hotel right on Ocean Dr. The continental breakfast included in the stay was just enough to get your day started. Conveniently located across the street from the beach with beach chairs and beach towels included in your stay. The AC was a bit on the noisy side but kept the room cool. All the staff was very kind especially Camilo at the front desk.

A Great Holiday

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

We had a great holiday in a charming and cool hotel right on Ocean Drive. The location is unbeatable, the staff very present and extremely friendly. We always like to come back again. We stayed with our two children in a 19 sqm room with partial sea view. The layout of the room was perfect, it sounds small, but was perfectly adequate. The location beats everything! The breakfast is great and the food in the restaurant is world class. Happy hour at the bar is great with a small, fine food menu. Thanks to Avalon for the great time.
