We enjoyed our stayed at Avila Hotel. Beautiful grounds, ocean views from our room and nice beach facilities. Cons: After a week we were tired of breakfast buffet. Would have been great to have a place for just coffee, pastries and fruit without the hefty price for entire buffet. The beach bar was ok for drinks, but not food. We...

Avila is a beautiful resort hotel with a layed-back boutique feel. While the newer rooms are small, they are well organized and comply. The staff are congenial and very helpful, the resort is very clean, and the food is fresh and good!

The situation right on the beach is perfect if you love the water. For a swim the lagoons are great with calm and warmer shallow water, and for snorkeling, the outside of the lagoons are covered in corals with thousands of fish swimming around. The hotel is clean and the staff always friendly. The breakfast buffet varied and good quality,...

The Avila Beach hotel is conveniently located on a quiet location not far from downtown Willemsstad. Rooms are spacious with excellent beds and well equipped. The hotel swimming pools, sweet and salt water, are very nice. Plenty of beach chairs. Service is excellent. Personnel extremely friendly. An excellent buffet breakfast is being served. The two restaurants offer good food.

I stayed here with my wife and family back in August 2016. We had booked 3 rooms in the Blues Wing which had beautiful views of the sea and beach. The rooms were very comfortable with good air-conditioning (very important in Curacao) and plenty of space to relax and store all your things. The bathrooms were of a good size...

The jetties that protect the hotel beach and coves of water have been expanded, making for several improvements. The beach area has been significantly expanded. There are now several additional thatched umbrellas for guests...
