“Good location but wasted facilities”
This is a reasonable hotel in a peaceful country location 3km from Avila. It is advertised as having a golf course facility, and the golf course backs on to the rear of the hotel, but you need to organise playing at the course separately. The course is pretty good and was very quiet when we played there. The hotel was stylish but fairly quiet. The rooms are large and good value. Our room opened out onto a nice roof terrace, but there were no chairs available to make use of the terrace, which seemed a waste of a good location. There was a decent sized outdoor swimming pool, but again no chairs available to sit on around the pool. There is a large bar area which is very comfortable, though it was rather difficult to find a barman to serve any drinks. Once located, however the drinks were good and the gin and tonic was particularly good value. The restaurant was nicely furnished, but was very empty and the food rather disappointing.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled as a couple

We came to Avila from a long trip from Portugal and was brought to Fontecruz Avila Hotel that was somewhat outside the city centre. The hotel from outside looked like a villa in a countryside. The lobby was clean and spacious. We were checked in fast and efficiently. Our bedroom was stunning! It was huge, with a balcony and a huge and beautiful king bed. The decor really fits the luxurious villa style. Dinner was very delicious with plenty of good quality wine. Breakfast was also good. the staff were friendly and accommodating. I was telling everyone in our group that I wanted to stay in this hotel for the rest of our tour. Really fabulous!!!

Beautiful location, easy road 15 minutes out of town, easy parking at hotel. BUT Expected better standard for the price paid. The hotel needs updating - tired and dull. We had to go to reception to check if anyone would care to serve us at the bar! That happened twice. We felt there was a total lack of professionalism - no attention to detail. This could be a fabulous destination, but someone needs to pull it apart and put it back in better shape.

This hotel improves by the year. Wonderful views, perfect for peace and quiet.
All amenities, nice being out of the hassle of town.
The same lady on reception as last year and she remembered us !, how good is that?
We had a bedroom for three as my son drove us down. Excellant, he had a double bed also.
The bathroom was excellent and very clean. Would definatley recommend.
Breakfast has a great choice of food.

Room Tip: Ask for the situation, I've, front, side, balcony,near lift, etc.

Stayed at Fonte Cruz Avila hotel for 1 night as part of a tour group. Room is clean, spacious but needs updating and so as the bathroom. Lighting in the room could be better. Buffet breakfast was average. The hotel is from the center of Avila.
