My husband & I spent a week at the Hamilton Cove Luxury Villas in villa 02-45. It is absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and is waterfront. It's a one bedroom villa, well stocked kitchen, wide screen TV in both the living room & in the bed room. We loved driving around in the golf cart which is provided by each villa... More

I've stayed at about twenty places all over Avalon, and I wouldn't stay anywhere but Hamilton Cove now. I've stayed in various units throughout, and, for the most part, they are great. Some of the units are better-appointed and more updated than others, and some have better golf carts, but all have great views.

Can't say enough great things about CIVR and villa 10-79. We were fortunate enough to be greeted and were checked into our room by the president of CIVR. He knew our names and was expecting our arrival. We received our villa (and golf cart) keys immediately and he was also nice enough to hail a cab for us. It truly... More

My family and I check into Hamilton Cove Villas with excitement and high hopes of an amazing three day weekend together. We reserved unit 10-65 and have never been more disgusted upon arrival to this unit. The unit is filthy, out dated, old, gross and beyond run down.

So... friends and I went over and rented an oceanfront condo on the water at Hamilton Cove and paid $550.00 per night for a 2 bedroom 2 bath w/2 balconies on the second floor that came with a 4 person golf cart, a necessity when staying that far from Avalon or pay $20 each direction from a cab company!

4 of us stayed in Unit 1-80 which is a beautifully decorated two bedroom two bath condo in Hamilton Cove. It is the first building in the community so it sits high above the water and offers spectacular views of the ocean and property. There is a private balcony off the living room and master bedroom.

We booked two condos near the pool. Condos were very nice and views were beautiful. Definitely pay attention to the number of stairs to your condo as there are no elevators. It can become exhausting, especially with luggage and small children. We were there for our wedding and has several other guests staying there as well. Everyone enjoyed their stay.... More

I'll start with the positive part of my review: Gated community with friendly guards, second story above the waves with a panoramic view of the water, boats, and sports. The two bathrooms with double sinks in both and decent showers helped. The drive from town was short and part of the fun. The weather was ideal. The hillside, Mediterranean-type architecture...

Most units in this property are awesome. We stayed in 1-59 and it was the perfect location. Great views, close to beach, pool, fitness room. I played miniature golf with the kids.
