We loved this property. It was a large resort made up of several buildings but the common areas (beaches, restaurants, bars) never seemed crowded. Beautiful grounds and nice staff. We loved the private beaches and lagoons. Plenty of beach seating. It was close enough to Pietermaai, Punda, and Otrobanda to walk.

Very nice facilities, very nice beach, good food, about 6/10 of mile to the shopping district of downtown. Some very nice restaurants off the property were only a short stroll away. Few taxis stop by, so you will have to rent a car or hire a guide to see much of the island.

Perfect location

Pros: Close to restaurants and downtown. Easy to park for your rental car. Nice beaches and pleanty of chairs.
Cons: Rooms could use updating a bit. We stayed in the Belle Alliance part.
Location: Ver y near Williamsted and Mambo beach.
We loved the location of this hotel as it was close to other restaurants, downtown, and Mambo Beach. We would definitely stay here again. The staff was accomodating as when we arrived we had requested a king bed and had two small beds. The allowed us to loof at another room with a king bed t decide if we wanted to switch or not as the first room was in the very front looking at the ocean and the seconda room was back a bit. we always found a place on the beach with shade even though we never get there until after 10:00 a.m. Very nice pool and bars. We really enjoyed sitting out by the bar at night as they had string lights out over the beach and always had music playing. It was very inviting.

Perfect!!!

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 not anything that should deter someone from choosing this hotel. The area is also PERFECT for some of the BEST restaurants on the Island. You are only a "very" short walk to a variety of them....Fishalicious, Rozendael's, Seasons, etc. A 25-minute walk (not 10 minute as Island people will tell you) will take you directly to the center of the city and the famous swinging bridge and waterfront cafes. As for the hotel itself, the staff is unbelievable....a huge kuddos to all!!! I stayed in the Octagon section and the room was spacious and very clean. I ate at all the restaurants on site, and enjoyed them all. Jazz night at Blues is a must!! If I had to say one negative thing about the hotel, it would be that the hotel only has only one pool area, which is very beautiful, but was overtaken by children. Most of whom were not supervised by their parents, who remained at the beach area, therefore, adults could not relax or swim because of flying toys, screaming kids, floats and water games. I really think Avila should invest in a separate pool area for the kids since this pool is too small for playing children and adults. Other than that, I have no complaints and definitely plan to return!!!

Lovely Hotel - Definately Recommend

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Lovely hotel; good restaurant; friendly staff. Comfortable room. Service at the desk (especially at check-out) can be a bit of a problem but that may have been due to the fact that we are English speaking which is not the language of most of the tourists at the hotel. Service at lunch in the main restaurant very slow. Would definately stay again at this hotel. The beach and pool are wonderful.

Peace and quiet! Exactly what we were looking for...

Pros: Quiet
Came to Avila to relax and get away. Hotel is very quiet and low key. Beach is beautiful with crystal clear water and relaxing waves. The pool was never overcrowded. My only gripe was not enough variety of food. This is expected when you are in a hotel that is away from a central location. There is a restaurant a few steps from the hotel which provides a nice reprieve from the usual hotel food.
