Reviewed yesterday NEW

we liked the location of Avila very much, close to Willemstad and some very nice restaurants. The beach facility is also nice and quiet. The service (breakfast, client friendliness, variety of food) was very average and not worthy of a 4 star hotel. Which doesn't mean that the majority of the staff is very friendly.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed January 16, 2017

This hotel offers a combination of warm and personal service, excellent amenities, very nice rooms and good food. Actually, when on Curacao, there are hardly any reasons than to look further for other beaches or facilities (unless one wants to swim with dolphins, one mile down the road). The atmosphere is great, service is great, the people are nice. Excellent...

I just returned from spending seven nights at the Avila Beach Hotel. From the moment I arrived everything was great. The check in was fast and they had upgraded my room to a Octagon with a Ocean view on the 3rd floor. The bellhop took my bags to my room for me and made sure I understood how everything worked...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Avila Beach Hotel. The grounds are very well maintained, the beach area is nice, and there are tons of amenities. The best thing about the hotel was that it was quiet and not overly crowded during our visit. There were times were it felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. There was...

I loved this Hotel. Our room had a beautiful large balcony and view of the sea. The grounds were beautifully kept All the staff were lovely. Service was great.The manmade beach seems totally real and there are 2 separate sections for swimming. The Caribbean Sea was somewhat "bordered" in so it felt very safe and mostly calm while still being...

Me and my family loved our stay at Avila Hotel. We just wanted a couple of days off work to enjoy a short vacation on the island. We've had a good time there. Very tranquil and beautiful views. Especially when the sun is going down. Make sure you bring your camera to take some great photos. The food was amazing!...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room on the top floor of the Belle Alliance Wing had an amazing view over the sea and the palm trees and was perfect for watching the spectacular sunsets. We had no complaints about the cleanliness, either. The beach was nice but somewhat lacking in shade. Snorkelling was great just outside...

Beware; Directions very poor from airport. Get GPS if you are picking up a car from the airport. Better to rent car from the resort. Reserved online months ahead. Room was very disappointing; dark, no view and uncomfortable bed. Overpriced breakfast brunch which was not included and not a lot of choices in area. Try to book through travel agent...

Like anywhere, connecting with local people gives your holiday a positive boost. In this case the local people were mostly the staff of Avila. It was quite a long time ago we had this many hilarious conversations in a hotel we stayed. Since this was our honeymoon we also enjoyed many surprises (partly arranged by our friends back home) and...

Nothing to complain. Very clean, safe, nice atmosphere. Really enjoyed my holiday in this hotel. Nice parking staff! Good breakfast. Go see the crabs at the wood walking area in the sea next to the restaurant.
