We stayed at the Avila Hotel from November 10 to November 17th, 2013. The 'common areas' of the hotel were beautiful, as were the grounds. Our room was in the 'Blues Wing', a wooden structure which juts out onto the ocean. The Avila was extremely accommodating, in putting us in the exact room we requested - one looking directly out...

I have stayed in many hotels around the world. I had never seen a hotel with a bathroom in the middle of the sleeping room. There is a foggy glass separating the bed from the bathroom. You can actually watch the other person (if you are a couple or sharing a room) going to bathroom. Beach area is small, swimming...

I have been coming to Curacao for over 20yrs, but somehow I never stayed at Avila. This time it was booked for me and I enjoyed it tremendously. Great location, great facilities but what struck me most was the friendly and professional staff. Probably the best hotel on the island..

This trip really was fantastic. Perfect weather, 86 degrees with ocean breezes every day. A few sprinkles every day, too, but you just went and stood under a palapa for five minutes and it passed. The Blues Rooms literally overlooked the ocean, and while they were not as new and updated as the Octagon rooms, they were large, had good...

...staying in Avila was allready a big present for my 50th birthday. Great hotel, 3 private beaches, friendly, smiling service, good food, excellent prices made this stay unforgetable. At my 50th birthday, the hotel gave me a nice bottle red wine presented on the room as birthday gift. The room we had was great, big, kingsize bed, only the pillows...

We had stayed at the Fairmont Orchid in Hawaii over Thanksgiving, so comparisons couldn't be helped. Some of the staff here is friendly, but mostly they're surly or unhappy, and I think maybe much of it has to do with the unhappy, dour priggishness of the many Dutch travelers who frequent the hotel. I've never known the Dutch to be...

Stayed at Avila for a week's holiday. Booked a room in the "Blues Wing" on the pier. Room had a nice view, however it could use some maintenance. That goes for all of the Avila Hotel. I think it is not worth of 4 stars. Breakfast, snacks and meals are just okay, nothing special. The staff at the frontdesk is...

We stayed at the Avila Hotel in Curacao for a short weekend 3 night stay. The staff were extremely helpful and the atmosphere of the hotel was great. Location is good, just south of Willemsted so an easy walk or short drive to where the action takes place. Most surprising was the excellent coral just beyond the hotel beach, the...
