Chose this hotel based on the number of solid reviews on this site. We got basically what we expected and the only disappointment was that in some of the restaurant and bar experiences within the hotel service was poor. It was odd seeing so many waitstaff standing around while we waited for our drink or food order. Oftentimes our order... More

I come to this hotel once in a while on business. I really enjoy my stay here since the renovations. Location is good, you can walk into Willemstad, some excellent restaurants very close by, and the setting is just beautifull. A big plus is that the rooms have a cable for internet, just plug in and the internet is up... More

My husband and I won a trip to Curacao, and had a 4-night stay at the Avila Hotel in early September 2011. Our room was in the Octagon wing, a "Preferred" very spacious room with balcony, ocean view and kitchenette. One day when it was very clear, we could see Venezuela from our room!!! Everything in our room seemed very... More

Both beaches are almost non-existent. You have to call numerous times for clean/dry towels, shampoo, etc.

The Avila hotel is beautifully located on walking distance to Willemstad. The Octagon Wing has nice rooms. Like to see famous Dutch people? Go there! Expect service and like to eat good food? Avoid this place! We stayed during X-mas. It started the moment from checkin in. They expected 3 and we were with a party of 4. Room was... More

Have been going to Avila when it was just a small, one building hotel. The 2 additions were thoughtful and blended in nicely. The new wing completely changed the ambiance and ruins it for those who remember it before the new wing and pool were added. Belle Terrace has very good food. Blues varies and it can be bad, especially... More

Nice historic hotel. Stayed in the Blues Wing with great views over the harbour. Nice relaxed ambience. Nothing hurried. Great small beaches. Island has some things worth exploring but there's not loads to do unless you at in to diving.

I was traveling with a dear friend from Italy that is an avid windsurfer and was looking forward to windsurfing in the Dutch Antilles since it is a windsurfing destination.

The Avila Beach Hotel is a nice hotel with a beatiful beach front area and pool. The hotel room could've used a coat of paint and a bit of dusting in the places that are rarely seen but noticeable if you inspect your hotel room. The staff was friendly. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the downtown area... More
