This is the place to go to escape it all. It is very low key and peaceful. I stayed in the octagon wing and the rooms were spacious and modern. The only thing I didn't realize is that the power outlets were European, but the front desk had converters. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and welcoming but not overly...

This is one of the best beach resorts we have ever visited. It is within easy walking distance from downtown Willemstad. If you don't like to walk, the hotel has a shuttle that will take you to the Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge. We had a huge comfortable room in the Octagon wing. Our view of the hotel grounds and the...

If you're comparing this place to some of the other big hotels on the island, this one wins on location. It's really close to the historic downtown and the commercial heart of Willemstad. The hotels around Jan Thiel/Caracas Bay are too far out of town, and are in the wrong direction from the majority of beaches in the northwest. The...

We were very impressed with the Avila Beach Hotel in Curacao. The Blues Wing provides beautiful sunrises or sunsets over the ocean and the room are bright, clean and well maintained. The amenities of the hotel are very good. You're not able to order lunch and have it delivered to your beach chair, but the food is good and reasonably...

I did a lot of research on where I wanted to stay in Curacao and picked the Avila because of it's beautiful photos, great reviews and the fact that you could stay on a pier overlooking the ocean. I paid extra for a room in the Blues Wing. When I arrived, I found out my room was at the very...

Dear WeirdNJ, First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to give your feedback on your stay. I am very sorry to hear that the view of the room didn't live up to your expectations. Some of the Blues rooms have a view to the Punda side and some over the Lagoon. Regarding the noise, we have...

We have been coming to this amazing Caribbean pearl for over 10 years now. Although it recently changed ownership, it is still by far the most tantalising place in the region. Apart from the fact that it has probably the best hotel beach you can find anywhere on the Island, few know that behind its' 'wave-breakers' one of the best...

We had a great 5 day stay at Avila! The hotel is great place to hang out and relax. There were two small beaches and a pool only steps away from our room. The room was very quiet and we slept soundly. A special shout out to our bartender Leleith at the Avila Schooner Bar. She made us feel very...

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation - come here! The hotel is walking distance to downtown, and also some really great restaurants - yet very private.
