I've stayed all over the world and this place, though beautiful water was average at best. No room service, mediocre food with same menus throughout the hotel daily so it got boring very fast.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 January 2017

This hotel offers a combination of warm and personal service, excellent amenities, very nice rooms and good food. Actually, when on Curacao, there are hardly any reasons than to look further for other beaches or facilities (unless one wants to swim with dolphins, one mile down the road). The atmosphere is great, service is great, the people are nice. Excellent...

Very disappointed as my friend raved about this hotel! My experience from start to finish with the exception of the service I received at the restaurants, bars, and check out was horrible! Ants were literally everywhere and there was no food in the room! They need to spray the rooms with real insect spray and not a can!

The Avila beach provides everything you want in a hotel. Good facilities Classic charm and not too noisy or commercial. The staff is always friendly and the food they serve is great. The Blues isn't my favorite place to go but if you enjoy Jazz it is a great place

Very nice food, bars, pool, beach...So-so snorkeling. Kid friendly. Ask for a la carte breakfast menu if you don't want to pay about $22 for breakfast buffet. Staff are excellent. Birds & lizards are fun to watch.

We had a great time at Avila Beach. The room and the bed were very good. We used all the facilities to eat and it was very good . The beach was great too, nice place to swim, more than enough chairs and places in the shade.
