Good location. Great beach. Nice though quite noisy room (we stayed in Blues Wing.) Mixed experiences with staff...some friendly and attentive, others rude and act bothered by simple requests, some of which are outright forgotten (read: lunch service at beach from bar staff). Beautiful resort. Good dinner food. No wifi in room and wifi in lobby quite slow. Experience well...

Just returned from a week in Curacao at the Avila. My family and I really enjoyed this hotel. I have read some of the negative comments but have to say that there is no pleasing some people.

We stayed in the Avila hotel for a week and had a great stay. The rooms are comfortable and well cleaned. Staff is friendly (in the beginning we sometimes had to get used to their Carribean speed of doing things :)). There are many excellent restaurants in the direct neighbourhood. Also, the coffee bar on the Avila property serves excelllent...

Our trip was beyond our expectations.  The culture, Dutch and Afro Caribbean, was warm, welcoming and a great combination.   Nataly, a manager, sent us off to night club dates that were beyond our normal experience and we enjoyed.; especially the Blues Bar at the Avila ( outstanding by San Francisco standards). The breakfast was fresh and varied. The Avila...

My partner and I stayed five nights at the Avila--like a previous reviewer, we were in room 420 in the Octagon wing. We were happy, overall, with the quality of accommodation--bed was comfortable, the tiny kitchenette handy for storing snacks or preparing coffee, and the minimalistic furnishings were quite to our liking. But there were a few places where the...

The hotel was very nice. We stayed in room 420 in the Octagon Wing. It was on the top floor with an ocean view. The room was very comfortable with a small stove and fridge. Nice for a morning cup of tea on the balcony. The infinity pool was nice and the beach was beautiful. The breakfast buffet was good....
