If you want to avoid the crowds of big resort properties, like the attractive Renaissance and Marriott in Willemstad, the Avila is a superb choice. While it is not a 5 or 10-minute walk into town, as I think some of the hotel's info declares, it is a very walkable 15 or so minutes. The area is quiet, and some... More

Just returned from a one week stay at this lovely hotel. Staff, waiters, waitress's, housekeeping very nice and friendly. It has two beach- side bars where they also serve food for lunch/dinner. Also two other restaurants for dinner onsite and were decent also. My only complaint is that not many English speaking people go there--more Dutch as it's the official... More

We've just returned from our first trip to Curacao,& the hotel provided an excellent atmosphere & experience. The staff were friendly & accommodating, the location was convenient, & the property itself was well maintained. The island itself is very interesting with some significant historical attractions of note. Renting a car for a day to take a tour of the island... More

I have several issues with this hotel. First, the food is terrible. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, we tried all three meals with no redeeming qualities. The woman who sat next to us on the flight warned us, but we quickly realized this on our own. The next issue is that we went out to a nice dinner on Monday night... More

This was our anniversary trip. We were there in Mid-January and the weather was great. It was our first time in Curacao and we could not have picked a better hotel. Great location -- 10 minute walk to Punda (although avoid walking at night). Fantastic staff. - in particular the omelette station gentleman provided excellent advice about what to see/do... More

This was our third trip to Curacao. We always split our vacation between Avila and another property in Westpunt. Our stay at Avila was perfect, as always. It is a beautiful, well-maintained property with a terrific beach (bring snorkeling gear for the on property coral reef!), comfortable rooms, good gym, and terrific people. (Thanks to Pearl for not only cleaning... More

We visited Avila Hotel on the first week of February. This was our second visit and the service was this time even better than on our first visit. Our room in Blues Wing was on the second floor facing to Willemstad. The room was very quiet, clean and we had an exellent view from the terrace over the ocean. We... More

Clean beach resort with full dining opportunities. Small, but nice beach areas. Very accommodating staff. Enjoyable , relaxing stay. Only two negatives: hard uncomfortable mattress, and shower never got warm.

It will be difficult for any hotel in Curacao to outperform the excellent facilities of the Avila Hotel in Willemstad: the rooms, in particular the suites ( 176!!), are spacious,clean, well decorated, and provided with excellent kitchen facilities; the beach is great with an abundance of comfortable beach chairs, shadowed and non shadowed;the resaturant and bar facilities are as you...

I was transferred to this hotel because Orbitz messed up our reservation. We originally had booked for Kontiki Resort which is right near Mambo beach. Our reason for this was because the majority of the nightlife is at the Mambo beach area. We were dissapointed to be transferred and we were further dissapointed to find that this hotel was not...
