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

This quaint hotel has become our "home" on Curacao. Just completed an eight night stay; we see no reason to stay anywhere else. Location is convenient. Right on the ocean, short walk to downtown area, buses and taxis always available directly in front of the hotel, (Budget Car Rental also on premise), quality restaurants within walking distance. Snorkeling is fairly... More

My boyfriend and I just returned home from a wonderful experience at Avila. The hotel and private beaches surrounding it are beautiful. We stayed 12 nights in an Octagon Superior room in the Octagon Wing with ocean view. The room was luxurious, spacious and clean. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a glass wall, but other than some... More

We spend the first 5 days of our honeymoon in Avila hotel. Really loved the place! They had everything, you didn't have to leave from the hotel property. Although, we liked to have lunch and dinner outside after trying the hotel supply, for a change :) Own sandy beach was really nice. And you could actually see fishes while snokeling... More

Avila Hotel is a good base for exploring Curacao. It is a short walk to the world heritage waterfront in downtown Willamstad. Facilities are attractive and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good restaurants on site and many are within walking distance. We rented a car and explored the small island, visiting beautiful beaches and snorkel sites.
