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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

Spent the week at Avila Beach Resort this past week. Overall, the resort is one of the nicer resorts on the island. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were well maintained and it was walking distance to Willemstad (though it seemed like the staff did not understand the concept of walking into town as they had not...

I've stayed all over the world and this place, though beautiful water was average at best. No room service, mediocre food with same menus throughout the hotel daily so it got boring very fast. Vodka options were Smirnoff or Absolute - nothing premium and same with tequila options and beer (no light beers). I paid a lot of money to...

Very disappointed as my friend raved about this hotel! My experience from start to finish with the exception of the service I received at the restaurants, bars, and check out was horrible! Ants were literally everywhere and there was no food in the room! They need to spray the rooms with real insect spray and not a can!
