The situation right on the beach is perfect if you love the water. For a swim the lagoons are great with calm and warmer shallow water, and for snorkeling, the outside of the lagoons are covered in corals with thousands of fish swimming around. The hotel is clean and the staff always friendly. The breakfast buffet varied and good quality,...

The Avila Beach hotel is conveniently located on a quiet location not far from downtown Willemsstad. Rooms are spacious with excellent beds and well equipped. The hotel swimming pools, sweet and salt water, are very nice. Plenty of beach chairs. Service is excellent. Personnel extremely friendly. An excellent buffet breakfast is being served. The two restaurants offer good food.

I stayed here with my wife and family back in August 2016. We had booked 3 rooms in the Blues Wing which had beautiful views of the sea and beach. The rooms were very comfortable with good air-conditioning (very important in Curacao) and plenty of space to relax and store all your things. The bathrooms were of a good size...

New management has made some significant improvements. My wife and I enjoyed a 10-day stay in Feb 2017 after first staying at the hotel in 2015. The jetties that protect the hotel beach and coves of water have been expanded, making for several improvements. The beach area has been significantly expanded. There are now several additional thatched umbrellas for guests...

The hotel changed management recently. I hear it is getting better. Staff is very friendly on a one to one basis, but things still suffer the bane of Curacao service, I.e. Very slow. On the plus side the beach and pool is great and the rooms are very clean and well furnished. We were here mainly for work so we...

Excellent location, near town but not too close, really nice beach, great local restaurants within 2 blocks. We stayed in a Blues room over the water, views were extra nice. Room as expected but have a feeling the room is a compromise with the view from pics I saw of other room types. Having deck on the water was great...
