Although this hotel was pleasant there are a few things that were very disappointing. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with a supposed fully stocked kitchen, it was not, simple thing like a toaster. Inquired at the front desk the first time, told Chris that we did not have one and he was amazed and stated that he would... More

We had a fantastic holiday here - what a great atmosphere, friendly service and great food. Understated, relaxing and enjoyable. Would happily revisit. Great beach. Nice place to explore. Well done Avila!

This is such a beautiful hotel with a real family feeling. It just feels like coming home. Every time I go to Curacao, I go to Avila. The staff is really friendly, the rooms are comfortable and it is always so nice to walk in the sea when you wake up for a day full of business. This year I... More

We chose the Avila because one of us likes the beach and the other is more interested in urban exploration and we thought this place would give us easy access to both. The private beach was actually a pleasant surprise--in a quiet cove so that you could actually swim in the salt water. But you could also easily walk into... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Avila. Our room was located in the Blues Wing, which gave us a balcony directly overlooking the ocean. The room was nice, but not exceptional. The hotel staff were quite friendly. The Avila has two main beach areas, each with its own ocean/salt water swimming area that is with a small inlet to the... More

Paul Kok & Avila team were all friendly & unusually helpful. The hotel is elegant & clean. Beautiful, clean & safe private beach offering well organised events & quick bar & restaurant service, which is unusual in Curacao. Curacao is a very interesting island with lots to see.Willemstad is pretty & can boast a fascinating history, largely influenced by Dutch... More

The Avila (Beach) hotel was once the residence of the french governor. This is the part of the hotel called La Belle Alliance. Then there is the part called Blues with tree-houses on stilts just by the sea. Finally there is the new Octagon building with European design furniture and fittings and 220 volt Euro (Schuko) power outlets! We stayed... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Avila. How could you not surrounded by lush gardens and beautiful water? But it could have been even better if the service was quicker. I don't understand why these places (not just the Avila) can't get it together in that respect. It's like no one really cares or have been trained in customer service.... More

Great week long stay at the Avila Hotel. Friendly staff and great location. Located within walking distance to many wonderful restaurants in the Pietermaai district. Relax at the hotel during the day or rent a car and explore the beautiful beaches on the island.

+ Perfect location just 10 to 15 min walk from Punda. Ok but small private beach with beds for everyone although it was holiday season. Calm area - Not much to do except gym Hard to snorkel due to strong winds Expensive as everything on the island
