The employees are great, especially Pasquale The Barista and CJ. Pasquale is a bonus to a really nice vacation/getaway. He is so pleasant and enjoyable to talk to when ordering a quick breakfast. CJ was exceptional as well and will be missed when he goes to medical school. Avalon is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and we cannot wait to come back to the Icona.

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.

First time at Icona Avalon. Been to Icona Diamond Beach. Loved them both. Can’t decide which we like better. Avalon is one of the most beautiful beaches in NJ. Service and cleanliness was top notch. The atmosphere is awesome. Felt like we were on a tropical island. Can’t wait to get back!

I always love staying at the Icona! It’s very clean, welcoming and all around beautiful! The staff is very friendly and the rooms are extremely comfortable and nicely decorated. The amenities and endless — iron, kitchenette, sanitizers everywhere, stocked bathroom accessories, etc. Next time I come down I’ll be staying longer, didn’t want to leave!

Amazing beach front hotel. Beautiful, clean rooms! The automatic nightlight in the bathroom under the vanity was also a fantastic touch. Great restaurants and the pool area was gorgeous! Can’t wait to return back!
