Here's what happened! After spending countless hours looking for the perfect island, the perfect hotel, I paid for a Ocean Front Blues room 10 months ahead to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. During that time and also shortly before our arrival I explained to management how I wanted the privacy and romanticism of a room facing the open water. This was to be a special occasion. I had enough of rooms facing the gardens, pools, and bars. What I got was far from it! We were show to the closed room facing the resort, the swimmers and the people walking past our room to get to their rooms. When I expressed my disappointment I was told all the other room were booked and would be occupied for the whole week that we were there. During that week, I saw several new visitors coming and going from those ocean facing rooms but none were available to us. Not for even one night. Sorry, I was told. Yes, i was very sorry too. So, think twice about your expectations at Avila Beach Hotel.

The good: - two nice lagoons to swim with access to open sea to swim lust after the breakwater - generally friendly staff, most trying hard to make your requests right) - quite breakfast, but be there at 7:15 AM - nice tango class outside with classy music. The Bad: - Rooms could use a bit of care (missing door handle in the bathroom) To improve: - !!! Please PLEASE make at least half of the beach SMOKE free. it can be windy there and we have spent half of our time inhaling smoke from cigarettes. ( we have discovered a smoke free restaurant just outside of the hotel, so it is possible :-)) - A quite beach area would be also perfect (We have seen people just reading or sleeping togeter with people having open mike phone-calls for 30 Minutes.) So make zone or educate the guests. - Please replace the towel service / drink on the beach service lady with a friendly person. (thank you in advance as we plan to come back next year :-) - Please keep the gym open longer on the weekend. (4PM is a strange time to close)

This was our fifth visit to Avila Beach Hotel. It did not disappoint. It is a perfect home base for exploring the island of Curacao. The grounds are beautiful and are centered on two white sand beach coves. The property is lovely and well maintained. The staff are excellent. Some exemplars were: - Helouise at the front desk who welcomed us warmly as returning guests. She also was exceptionally helpful when we encountered some difficulties from a fall. -Elvis who oversees the food and beverage area is a friendly and professional presence. He is always solicitous for our well being, and is patient when answering questions about the island and the local language, Papiamento. -Sheyla works in the gift shop and was a delight to meet and very helpful about the shop and the island. -Jeanine in housekeeping can always be counted on to do a thorough job with a smile and a laugh. In addition to the wonderful rooms, other highlights include: -Schooner Bar, outside on the water, which is a great place to end each evening; -Blues is a restaurant with outstanding Jazz on Thursday evenings. People come from all over the island to see the great local performers. -The ability to snorkel on a reef right out of the gap in the breakwater sheltering each of the two beaches. -Proximity to amazing restaurants. Within walking distance from the Hotel there are at least five excellent restaurants with more opening each year. These include Deja Vu, Mosa, Fishalicious, Serafina, and new this year was Null Twentig. All are wonderful. We can't wait to go back.

My friend and I had a lovely time. Loved the beach options and having things spread out. The Schooner bar was a favorite daily stop at all hours and loved the music at Blues. The staff was very friendly and it was nice to see how much they enjoyed working with one another. The location was ideal as well. Close enough to Punda, but removed enough for a more relaxed vibe.
