The room was nice and modern, with a good view over the ocean. It's a pity it took so long to clean the rooms though. We left for an island tour at 8:40 a.m. and came back at 4 p.m. and the room still hadn't been made up. We were obliged to go and sit at the bar until we... More

Between the 12th and the 24th of June 2014 my wife and I occupied the Simon Bolivar suite at the Avila hotel in Curaçao and we truly had a marvelous time in without any doubt the best and most luxurious hotel on the Island. All personal, without any exception, were so nice, friendly and service oriented. They really cared and... More

Really very best cappuccino on the island at the Coffeeshop. And then to dream away at the Beach bar, where they prepare your food at the bar, delicious and fresh, completes the perfect Caribean experience.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Avila hotel. We stayed at the Blues wing which we can strongly recommend! You get a balcony right above the sea so the views are amazing. We were lucky to get a room with a larget balcony with our own sunbeds so we could enjoy the sun in our own privacy! The... More

We went there for our honeymoon and we were absolutely satisfied and delighted with this hotel in every aspect imaginable. The room was perfect, just as published. The cleaning was excellent, the food in the restaurants (including the breakfast) was delicious, and last but not least the staff was really friendly and made you feel at home. Totally recommended!

I have never written any type of review before but my experience at the Avila Hotel in general and the interactions with Chris at the front desk and Mimi as the manager in particular have prompted me to take time to write this review. At first we just felt like a number and had a room which fell way below... More

The reason we chose the Avila was because of all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. Well, after visiting this poor excuse for a luxury resort - I have to assume that the people writing the reviews are the employees. Let me keep this short and to the point: - Dirty, small rooms. - Lazy, unfriendly staff - Small, cigarette butt... More

After spending 10 days at the Avila we didn't want to ever leave the island. This is the perfect hotel for honeymooners, young couples( with and without children ), more mature travellers, professionals who have to be in Curacao for business. Within a couple of hours you will make lifelong friends or remain totally anonymous if you so wish. It... More

Wow! A wonderful resort that is not very "Americanized". During our 14 day stay, we only met 4 other Americans - most of the guests were Dutch, with other Europeans and Latin Americans. It was great to become friends with couples from The Netherlands, Sweden, and Belgium. Located within a short walk of downtown Willemstad for easy access to it... More

Be forewarned, this will be longwinded! We spent 6 nights at the Avila Hotel at the beginning of April 2014. This was our first experience ever being in the Caribbean and I was just blown away at how beautiful this hotel is. Right from the lobby, up to our room. I absolutely loved nearly everything about this hotel. We stayed... More
