Two kids pose on hotel steps

Review of Avila Lighthouse Suites, Avila Beach

Overall, this hotel is a must for hotel-scouting families looking for something kid-friendly. It’s perfect for children in the hotel amenities, setup, and location. But, it’s also special because not only are your kids’ needs accounted for (and who are we kidding – they’re the bosses anyway), but the adults also feel like they’re on a pampered beach vacation.  The hotel is steps from the ocean, there are complimentary white fluffy towels in the pool area and there’s a free waffle bar with whipped cream in the morning.

Nuby Flip-it Active Cup Review_1

Nuby Flip-it Active Cup Review

This cup has beautiful print designs but unfortunately, the button to open the lid is super sensitive. We bumped it open while carrying the cup in a bag, so it leaked all over everything. Since we’re usually on the go, accidently pressing the open button would happen all the time, and I wouldn’t chance traveling with it because of that.
