This was our first visit to Curaçao and it was a good one. The Avila is located in Willemstad, so you can walk to other restaurants, shops or downtown. We stayed in the Blues section, room 291, and it was a great room. The room is located at the end of the pier and our balcony looked out over the...

I did a great deal of research, mostly on tripadvisor, when selecting the Avila hotel for our trip. After being very disappointed by our stay, I reread the reviews trying to understand what went wrong. I am honestly not sure how these reviews differ so widely. I think the key is expectations. If you are looking for a place close...

The location is great, as it is walkable to some of the best restaurants on the island, and the blues wing rooms are right on the water with excellent views. The staff is friendly and does a nice job with upkeep. Some of the building construction quality seemed a little on the cheap side, and the beds were not comfortable...

Property is aesthetically pleasing but the atmosphere is sterile and cold. There is no room service & the bed is very hard, but the room is clean & nice. We were given tickets for New Years Eve upon check-in, but later found out they are only good for a midnight champagne toast - We were not told that reservations for...

Hotel is close to the road and a walk into Willemstad is manageable, the overall appearance of the place is a bit worn out ,the rooms are different but nice, the beds just down right suck hard as the floor and no top sheet. The ocean view is good but not the best on the island, even though they claim...

Great people and excellent service. The bar and pool areas are great. The beach is not the best in Curaçao but is a nice spot to relax at your own hotel. The people are so nice. It's also a very safe island to hang out. Highly recommended.

Staying at Avila Beach was great! Good hotel, clean and nice, excellent, smiling staff, good food. Sitting on the beach or the balcony, overlooking the Caribbean see was amazing! And the dinner on the beach - well that was awesome! When return to the beautiful Curacao we hope to stay again at Avila Beach!

Our room, in the Octagon wing was spacious with an ocean view, balcony, king bed. Also, there was a mini fridge and plates, utensils, good coffee maker, etc., so we could have a light breakfast on our balcony. (I don't understand why there was a 2-burner stovetop when there were no pots or pans. A small microwave probably would make...

The Avila Hotel is a beautiful historic place. They have 3 beaches on site, my favorite being the one in the middle. The ocean is breathtaking. The staff went above & beyond for us so I cannot say enough! Especially Robert, thank you a thousand times over! I cant say much about the restaurant because we ate at surrounding places....

This is the place to go to escape it all. It is very low key and peaceful. I stayed in the octagon wing and the rooms were spacious and modern. The only thing I didn't realize is that the power outlets were European, but the front desk had converters. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and welcoming but not overly...
