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...

We are also grateful to your husband for having chosen the Avila Hotel for your surprise trip! It was great to read that you had a super experience and we thank you for sharing this. We especially liked your last sentence but made a minor change to it: Just book a room and come back! Thank you and see you... More

My wife and I visited the Avila for the first time at the end of January 2015. We stayed in the Blues wing with a beautiful view of the Caribbean and a fantastic sunset every night. We loved this place. The location was perfect, far enough way from "town" to miss the noise and hustle and bustle, but close enough... More

Fantastic experience at the Avila Hotel. It's right on the water, with its own small beach. There are two protected coves that are great for swimming and snorkeling (especially for beginners). Many residents/guests of the hotel use the all-inclusive meal plan. However, there are many excellent restaurants closely the hotel; some within walking distance; others will pick you up and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Avila during a 10-day trip to Curacao. Pros: - An older crowd of mostly Dutch guests which gave the resort an adult, peaceful atmosphere (don't book this hotel if you're looking for a night life - there isn't any) - Two beaches with shallow, protected waters - Small, boutique resort feel - Perfect...

The Avila Hotel is an elegant but low-keyed hotel about 15 minutes from the downtown of Willemstad. We rented a car because we were staying for 9 nights and wanted to do a fair amount of sightseeing on the island, but other people we spoke to said they just used taxis when they wanted to go into town. Unlike many... More

For more then 25 years we use this Hotel for our stay in Curacao-Willemstad. Very good average, friendly Staf, nice Beach and Pool, and nice Rooms. Not the highest Quality you can find on the Island, bur the best average . the only minus is the food, but there are many nice Restaurants nearby.
