My husband and I spent two lovely evenings at the Icona Avalon. It was so wonderful. We were celebrating our 23rd Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we pulled up to the Valet we were greeted with friendly faces and such helpful and caring employees. We did a soft check in which allowed us to enjoy the resort a few hours before our room was ready. What a great feature! No beach or pool day is wasted with this great amenity. Also, upon entering our room we found a chilled bottle of champagne signed by the staff wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Such a thoughtful way to start our getaway. The young men at the beach were such a delight. They were so outgoing and accommodating. What a treat not to lug beach chairs and other paraphernalia! Julia was a lovely waitress that took care of us at the Brew Pub one evening. Ryan offered us a ride to Stone Harbor on the Icona golf cart. He chatted us up offering suggestions when asked as to what to see and do and fun places to eat. While our stay was short we were treated well. I highly recommend Icona Avalon.

Hotel's Favourite
As a retired Hotel GM for a major chain, I consider myself a tough critic. My expectations were admittedly low due to our family group stay coming at the end of the season, a late Thursday night in September. Not the case. I was very pleasantly surprised as to the condition and maintenance at the conclusion of the "busy" season. Nice job to the maintenance crew! I know that shore Guests can be tough on a facility. The staff encountered were friendly throughout our stay. The public areas were clean. The room, done mostly in white, was clean and free from wear & tear. Fridge, coffee maker, hot water, etc. all worked as they should. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom, while small, was clean (I found one long brown hair). We stayed on a Thursday night and I heard no complaints or concerns from any of the others in our group. Breakfast on Friday morning (we had two adjacent tables of 11 pp total) was a bit slow as most servers had gone for the season. The 2 servers were doing a tremendous job and we gave them some slack and enjoyed good conversation. Other banquet crew and kitchen staff were assisting. Nice Team work observed. I was previously unfamiliar with the ICONA product and hear that they have two others. I would not hesitate to give them a try. Only pleasant surprises experienced.

We rented the Veranda for a 60th birthday party and things could not have been better. ICONA worked with me through out the pandemic, rescheduling our party date multiple times without any issue, they could not have been more accommodating. Incredible people to work with. The day of the party was perfect and our coordinator Carly couldn't have been more helpful, from setting up to making sure we were taken care of throughout the event. Venue was beautiful, food was great, staff was friendly and helpful. This place is a class act all around, can't wait to get back there again!

The sun did not cooperate but that did not stop us from enjoying our time at Icona. Great place to gather the family and enjoy each other's company. Thank you for all the ways you made it special! There is no place like the beach to chill and allow space for everyone to relax together. Our two grandchildren sleep well after running on the beach for hours.
