Such an incredible resort! We loved every second of staying at the Avila. The hotel has a great story and history, you really feel you are part of the culture of Curacao. If you want to experience a hotel that breaths Curacao and history, stay here! also very friendly local staff and beautiful beach.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We had the Octagon Deluxe room. All the staff were very polite and friendly. We enjoyed our cappucinos and croissants every morning at the Schooner Bar. Indira at the bar was a joy to talk to each morning and we also appreciated Anouk at the Front Desk for her help. The grounds were beautiful, and the beaches and pool were wonderful. We did eat at the restaurant in the hotel and found the food to be good.
The Avila is truly a wonderful hotel with which to enjoy Curacao! We were able to walk into town , a 15 min. walk and saw the sights. During the weekday there is a complimentary shuttle to downtown, but we walked to enjoy looking around. There is also a complimentary airport shuttle, so make certain you book it as soon as you book your room! Overall I would certainly recommend the Avila as a good place to stay in Curacao!

Room Tip: Ask for second floor rooms or a room with a beach view. The Octagon Deluxe room is spacious but a s...

We stayed at the Avila Beach Hotel November 4th to the 11th 2017.Everything about this resort was wonderful. The staff was very helpful, food was great (especially the waffles at the breakfast buffet) very clean and location was perfect! I would highly recommend this hotel for your vacation and I will most definitely return. Also if you stay and need a taxi use Hubert for your traveling needs. He was recommended by the hotel and we loved him1

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the Oceanfront Bluewing for 2 weeks and we almost cried when we had to go back to reality. These rooms are amazing. THe view is stunning and the room is very romantic. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the grounds of the hotel are well maintained. We enjoyed our stay very much and we will for sure come back.

Stayed nov 9-12 / 2017. Avila is located very well. The beach and pool are always pristine, everything is in order and there is enough space for everyone. It has a very relaxing outdoor area. The restaurants and bars are OK. You can find different types of food, but they don’t have an all inclusive program which makes it very expensive, if you can bring stuff from outside is better. We stayed (3 rooms) at the Belle Alliance Building. The rooms are OK. There is no marble or any other rock style decoration, everything is tile and plastic. The bathrooms are pretty small and have glass walls, it has a window in the bathroom so there is no time during the day or night that you can have the room 100% dark. They change your towels and order the room everyday if you ask for it, but it doesn’t matter how much sand you bring in your bed, the sheets are not changed during your visit.
I can come back just to be at the beautiful beach it has.
