My husband and I chose this hotel mainly because of the positive reviews, the beach and its proximity to the town center (about a 15-20 min walk). The beach was great - lots of space, enough chairs, nice beach bar/restaurant right on the beach. The hotel was also on the quieter side; not a lot of children running around. It's... More

We stayed a week at the Avila. The layout of the property was great, the food was excellent (especially the Pincho/BBQ at the Blues bar) and the staff were extra nice. We were two gay women, and never felt uncomfortable being there (an important factor in gay travel). Willemstad was a quick ten minute cab ride and was an enjoyable... More

We went there for our honeymoon and our expectations were high and unfortunately not met. We sent email before we arrived but we did not receive any answer. They have blocked money on our card without clarifying it beforehand as what we had in our hotel in Aruba later. Everybody else received a welcome drink besides us as we were... More

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
