June stay

Lovely hotel , from start of the holiday to the end. We had many request from safety pins, tv , adaptors and they always came running to help. The two beaches were lovely and we always got great drinks and food. We would def recommend the hotel to everyone we know going to curaçao . Special thanks to elvis and indira and anouke. We had the best girls lime. From the trinis

Stunning Honeymoon!

I had done extensive research on which hotel to choose on our Curacao honeymoon and we finally chose Avila. The service as soon as I booked was fantastic and there was constant communication from the hotel staff to answer all of my questions pre-vacation. Unfortunately, due to plane issues, we essentially lost a day on our trip and spent over 12 hours traveling. I reached out to Avila and they graciously offered us an extra night, incredibly nice of them to do and we very much appreciated this courtesy. The two beaches were fantastic, never crowded and always a nice chair open and the water is simply beautiful to take a dip in. I have to say the beach bar is really fun and I love the vibe at sunset for a cocktail and the live music on certain nights was a really great touch. The front desk staff was fantastic throughout our stay and offered great suggestions for things to do and restaurants! I deleted one star simply because we were there during construction and it was very noisy, I look forward to returning when the construction is over and see the new and improved restaurant! Only a few suggestions would be to have wait staff do beach-side service so people don't have to walk to the bar for a drink and maybe go around at certain points of the day offering cold towels? Also, the breakfast was great but it was the exact same every day and we stayed for several days so, it got a bit redundant. I would also upgrade your beach lounge chairs.

Excellent experience

Clean, well maintained hotel. Great location. Beaches were fantastic as were the bars and restaurants. The staff were very friendly, professional and efficient. Any concern or need was answered immediately. I will certainly be coming back.

A perfect anniversary celebration

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Avila Beach Hotel celebrating our 35th anniversary. In every way it was a perfect experience. Throughout our stay, as well as in the booking process, the Avila staff was wonderful. Special thanks to Zatessa for her help with arrangements, Nick for his kindness during our special dinner on the beach, and Zarety for her care of our Belle Alliance apartment. The hotel reception staff were excellent, and our experiences with restaurant and bar staff were extremely positive throughout our stay.The Avila is a classy, well-maintained property with a quiet and relaxing ambience. The grounds are beautiful, with lovely gardens, beaches and swimming areas. The snorkeling, especially for beginners like us, was spectacular right from the beach. The food on site is very good -- we ate at the Blues restaurant, Belle Terrace and at the Sea Terrace. Jazz night at the Blues was terrific -- excellent musicians and a really enthusiastic crowd. There are also four very good restaurants within an easy (5-minute) walk nearby, so there are plenty of food options beyond the variety of Avila offerings.The walk into town is easy and takes about 15 minutes. In the opposite direction there's a good grocery store, also about a 15 minute walk. The neighborhood around the Avila felt completely safe to us - just use common sense when going out at night.We're already planning our return trip next year. The Avila is a special place, with a special staff. We can't thank them enough for helping us celebrate our anniversary!

nice relaxing hotel

as others have stated this is a quite relaxing hotel. there is some entertainment at night but not much.there are 2 little lagoons open to the ocean. the one to the right is for swimming with very few fish. the one to the left is for snorkeling with a lot of fish I even saw a barracuda. there are a number of sea urchins so you shouldn't be walking through the water on the left side. it's also rocky and more windy. if you can snorkel out to the gap in the lagoon the visibility is great and there's a nice reef.Our room was really nice and we were told we were upgraded. We had free wifi in the room. The tv had all of the us channels plus others. We had a fridge and stove and an obstructed view of the ocean. The housekeeping was great.The only issue I had was there was no shower curtain so the bathroom was flooded each time.The food and drinks were expensive at the hotel. They had a semi happy hour on Fri but not all drinks were discounted. I wish they had happy hour each night. We ate at both the bar and restaurant looking over the water. There is a bbq place and mini mart around the corner about 5 min walk. This was our first and probably last time in Curacao. Everywhere you went you were told about how unsafe the streets were. There were a number of abandoned buildings and the sidewalks were crumbling. They could also use a whipper snipper. Curacao seems to be a dry place as there was nothing lush except on the resort.We walked into town about 40 minutes on the Saturday and saw the bridge on a boat and a bizarre which was nice. I don't think I could eat iguana.There I still much of the world to see so I doubt I'd be back but if I did because of the cost of food I would try going all inclusive.
