Lovely hotel, great location

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 the sea wall. When we go back, which we will, we will make more use of a hired car to visit the other beaches on the island. There are some beauties!We mainly dined in the restaurants nearby, but the Avila barbecue night was well worth the money. The one slight disappointment was, surprising, considering the other reviews, the service. Some, like the egg men, Sebastian and Clifton, or the beach towel lady, couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, but often it seemed the staff were just doing a job, albeit with varying degrees of efficiency. This was especially the case in the Schooner Bar.That, however, is a minor quibble and we are already looking forward to returning to the Avila in the future.

Nice location but disappointed

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 as we heard it's more likely to get this included. Sasha and Donna are very nice at the pool bar. Be sure to visit for lunch.The Blues bar and restaurant is a must on Thursday nights because of the music not the food which was so so. Great restaurants in the area so no need to eat dinner at the resort.

Excellent honeymoon providers with great staff!

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 gifts from the hotel. The chocolate dipped fruits in our room at arrival still gives me goosebumps when I think of them...Avila Beach Hotel is a very nice hotel with great staff at a very good location. We enjoyed the island through our rental car but you should be aware that some parts of the island CAN be quite dangerous. Just use your common sense and don't wander off into the big black night through dark streets. In conclusion, the Carribean vibe is very much at home in Avila and we definitely recommend this hotel. The cleaning of the room also happened really thoroughly. Yes, of course it is not a cheap hotel but definitely worth it!! Also great in Avila is the heritage, go and check out the old Rolls Royce from the Avila Hotel from 1926 in Gloria's store, she is also very sweet :-).

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.

Perfect Wedding Day

I recently had my destination wedding at Avila Beach Hotel. Overall the staff did an amazing job - special shout out to Zatessa who coordinated all the planning and was so helpful and responsive. The location is beautiful, the food and service were excellent. If you are thinking of a destination wedding in Curaçao, I highly recommend this hotel. We hosted the rehearsal dinner, a welcome cocktail reception, the wedding ceremony and reception, and a farewell brunch all at Avila and all went off without a hitch. Everyone who attended commented on how nice the hotel is and how beautiful the location. Thank you Avila!
