My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Avila Hotel in Willemstadt, our first time in Curacao. The staff was for the most part extremely friendly and helpful, going out of their way to please and make your stay the most enjoyable. Guests are discreet and for the most part European (mainly Dutch and German), which makes it a...

My boyfriend booked this hotel solely based on all its reviews and we have not been disappointed! We stayed here for a week at the end of September and we enjoyed it fully. We arrived after a tiresome 10 hour flight and we have been met with a great smile and welcome by Louisa at the reception that made our...

We have just spent two weeks at Avila. Great staff, so friendly and helpful. The beach and snorkelling off the rocks was excellent, more fish in one small location then we have seen in many other visits to the Caribbean. Lovely view from the balcony and the Blues bar an extra treat on your doorstep. Food and live music really...

If ever there was a hotel that nailed being perfect, Avila is the one! Our entire stay was very relaxing from check-in to check-out. Every staff member is genuinely kind and friendly and very helpful. The hotel is gorgeous, very well maintained. And the beaches are very nice. We had an early flight and the front desk staff made sure...

Worst things first: a) 8AM in the morning: "HOUSEKEEPING!" - knock knock - "HOUSEKEEPING!" - knock knock - Loud staff Chatter in Papiamentu in the floor. We always had our DND-sign out from evening to morning. Unacceptable for us was the fact that Housekeeping starts at 8AM to knock loudly on the other doors. Either start shielding the rooms better...

My partner and I stayed at Avila Hotel for one week in September and it was the best week we've ever spent. We chose Avila after reading several reviews on Avila and the competition. To help make my decision, I emailed the hotel to ask a few questions. They responded quickly and were extremely friendly! Upon check in we were...

The Avila Hotel location, beach, and grounds are absolutely beautiful. Very tropical, with their coconut and plantain trees, thatch roofed beach huts, white sands, and clear blue sea waters. We loved the atmosphere and service at the Schooner Bar on the beach. We were really there for the Caribbean vibe, so all this made it worth it to us. However,...

The room was clean and we always had sufficient towels and ice. Desk staff was helpful. The Wi fi was very good and wide spread in the public areas. The food at the beach bar was good at the Barista Cafe not so much. I was not real impressed with the staff at the Belle Terrace but the shrimp and...

I have stayed at the Avila since it was a very small hotel without the Octagaon, Blues Wing, and the Villas or the pool. It has always been an exceptional property with a very special feeling. When you stay at the Avila you feel as if you have really gotten away. The Belle Alliance with Water View is a favorite...

I stayed at Avila Hotel August 15-23, 2013 and could not have been more pleased. As a solo traveler, I was initially concerned by some of the reviews I read regarding the area, however, once I arrived, I had NO worries. The location of the hotel definitely has some revitalization in progress within the surrounding streets, but it is certainly...
