      We enjoyed the resort facilities. Everything was close and available to use. We really enjoyed our room and how close it was to the beach. We were able to easily walk into town. The people who worked there were great and very friendly. He had the morning buffet breakfast, which was excellent. We enjoyed the Blues restaurant and had a wonderful whole Caribbean Lobster that was delicious. The 3 beach areas were nice and not crowded and we enjoyed the pool and walking around the facilities.

      They were a bit short on towels during our stay.

      Avila was a very relaxing, enjoyable visit. This was our first trip to Curacao. The accommadations were clean. Staff was friendly and very helpful. We were upgraded when we checked in, which was wonderful. Really enjoyed the morning pasteries that were at our door every morning.The food at the hotel was excellent! Great location! A pleasant walk into town and other interesting restaurants. Loved the international feel of the hotel. Both my husband and I got a massage at the spa and it was one of the best I have every had. My husband works in South American and it was a quick trip from Venezuela. We will be back!! Thank you!

      Great hotel! Lobby could use some updating, but we just walked through it. Very pleasant stay!!

      Very friendly and polite staff, wonderful location, good breakfast. In fact, before booking at Avila, I had some hesitations, on the basis of several guest reviews on your website, but the complaints in most of these reviews appeared to be unfounded.

      You are not supposed to move to and from the beach in swim wear, but there is no place to change near the beach. I was given a very nice suite, which was however not equiped with things you normally find in a hotel room such as, for example, a minibar.

      Good size rooms, modern design, good hotel facilities, easy access to Punda (downtown)

      Inconsistant rules, refused restaurant entry dress code bars shorts, other evenings many wore shorts! Crowded beach.

      I loved the location. Close to Punda and some great restaurants. The octagon wing was modern and clean. It was our anniversary and we were given champagne, which was a lovely touch. The beach was small but perfect. Plenty of space to lounge. Very compact hotel, but still had nice amenities.

      There wasn't much we didn't like. Shower in Octagon isn't set up very well- everything got soaked -like the entire floor everytime we showered. One time the sheets smelled really bad, like super moldy musty on the pillows. And it was confusing as to where to eat. Perhaps just in our room-but we had no idea what restaurants and pool bars served what. It would have helped to have menus somewhere. There wasn't even a menu for room service.

      Room smelled like it was not used for a long time!

      Eventhough booking three weeks ahead the room was not accessible as the key was lost. Hotel staff did not cummunicate to the next shift so even the next morning there was no key to our room Key arrived at 11 while we were about to check out at 12 so really no use! Bad example of a quality hotel.

    • Older travelers

      The most beautiful little beach ever seen. The hotel is probably on the best location on the island, and only 15 min by foot from the center of Curacao. Don't bother renting a car, actually there is not that much to see on the island. Use the local small busses, cheap and safe. Restaurants nearby, good food but all quite expensive though and of course very dutch.
