We have just spent two weeks at Avila. Great staff, so friendly and helpful. The beach and snorkelling off the rocks was excellent, more fish in one small location then we have seen in many other visits to the Caribbean. Lovely view from the balcony and the Blues bar an extra treat on your doorstep. Food and live music really good. We normally go to one of the main Hotel chains, so wasn't sure about booking direct with this hotel, but so glad I did, the character and individual approach was very refreshing. The only slight irritation was the housekeepers a bit noisier in the mornings than perhaps they needed to be, but this was only a minor problem on a couple of days when we had a late night and so a late start.
