This was a nice hotel. It wasn't fancy, but the views were awesome. We had a deck that we sat out on in the mornings and watched hermit crabs and iguanas in the breeze. Our rooms was at the end of the property, leading out to the ocean. They had pretty good restaurants and the hotel was a 15 to... More

This is by far one of the best hotels in the world. Interestingly affordable too! The service, the views, the food, the atmosphere - truly amazing. Breakfast on the beach everyday. They have an amazing jazz/reggae club that sits on top of the water in their private beach. The music is jamming. You never even have to leave the hotel... More

Recently we made our first trip to Curacao. After researching locations on line we decided to stay at the Avila. We loved the resort. The location was beautiful, the beaches were great. The Avila staff was outstanding. They were all very friendly and helpful. The Avila provides a nice shuttle into the city, twice a day. But if you decide... More

We took a last minute deal from Europe and stayed at Avila for 6 nights over Easter. We had a wonderful stay and the weather was magnificent. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The room was in the old wing, with some ocean view, quiet, clean and an ok size. The 2 hotel beaches were the best part of the... More

We began our stay on Curacao with five nights at Avila Hotel in Willemstaad. We stayed in the Blues Wing in a room facing toward town (West) with a balcony that provided a view straight down into the beautiful Carribean. From our deck, we were able to watch tropical fish, ships entering port, sailboat races and dolphins! Very pleasant mornings... More

We liked this hotel very much. Very well built, not too big and very classy. Very colourful, just like everything in Curacao. The beaches and the bars are well located, just like the whole hotel. During our stay we found out that the Dutch royal family also chooses this hotel, during their stay in the Netherlands Antilles. Pretty expensive, but... More

My husband and I just got back from our anniversary trip. I researched many islands and hotels before choosing the perfect place and I'm so glad I chose the Avila in Curaçao! In every business there's going to be good and bad reviews. Naturally, I was nervous about staying at this hotel. The staff blew those worries away the minute... More
