Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Our room had a postcard view and a nice balcony we could sit on each evening. The daily cleaning was excellent. The bed was harder than I am used to so we called the front desk and a nice pad was inserted. Can't imagine a better beach or workout room.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 January 2017

This hotel offers a combination of warm and personal service, excellent amenities, very nice rooms and good food. Actually, when on Curacao, there are hardly any reasons than to look further for other beaches or facilities (unless one wants to swim with dolphins, one mile down the road). The atmosphere is great, service is great, the people are nice. Excellent...

This resort has it all! It's in a great location, close to the city with excellent restaurants nearby. The resort itself has very good food. There is excellent snorkelling right outside the break wall. The resort has great public spaces which are comfortable and beautiful. The resort is very quiet with a mostly middle aged clientele and well away from...

Just arrived back yesterday... The Hotel is exactly what they advertised...We went to all there restaurants. You put everything on your credit card and take care of the Bill on check out...The whole island is expensive to eat out..But once you get your head around it. You just need to splurge and enjoy. I never had a poor meal anywhere...

Willemstad is the colourful capital of Curacao. With friendly and laidback people all over the place. Avila is a modern seaside hotel with all amenities. Beach, Pool, Gym, indoor and outdoor restaurants and bars. Excellent breakfast on the terrace! Modern (Dutch) management. Great staff. Don't miss it!

This resort is strikingly beautiful and well designed. The service is great, too. Renzo, working the baggage and off-the-cuff concierge arrangements at the front door, was great!! The two cove-like beaches are peaceful and clean, and if you swim just out of the mouth of the little cove, you can enjoy some great snorkeling. There are some small, beautiful and...

We spent a week at the Avila Beach Hotel. It fulfilled our requirements as a beach resort hotel with all that you'd need (Pool, beach, bar and restaurant) The accessible room (218) was on the first floor and despite being listed as 'Ocean View' and facing the ocean, the view of the sea was obscured by other buildings. Higher floors...

The good points of this hotel are the location (close to the center of Willemstad, however better don't walk the neighbourhood at night) the sea view, and a quite reasonable restaurant and jazz bar. However we found that the maintenance of this hotel was long due. Part of the firefighting installation in the building is inoperable (see pictures). The interior...

I arrived at approx 12:45pm and was told our room would not be ready until 4. We were offered a room to change our clothes. We went down to the beach area and received towels, but we were told that we needed towel cards from the front desk (were not given to us). I returned to the front desk and...
