The hotel is located quite close to Willemstad, we often walked into the city (20 min walk). The neighbourhood does not look very appealing, but we never had any problems even at night.
The room we stayed in was small but ok - normally you don't stay in the room during the day, so this was no problem. The hotel has two small beaches with free sunchairs and enough places in the shade.
We only had breakfast in the hotel once because we think it is overpriced. Save some $ and have your breakfast in the Barrista coffee on the grounds of the hotel. For dinner we always went to one of the close restaurants or to Willemstad. The restaurants close to the hotel are very nice and the prices are ok.
The Avila hotel lacks good personel. There are some exceptions (Lady at the pool bar preparing snacks for lunch) but normally they just don't seem to be happy in their jobs. We've never seen a waiter smile...
