We stayed at the Avila Hotel in Curacao for a week, and it was a lovely experience from start to finish. The room (310) was lovely, spacious and clean, and included a small kitchenette area with sink, fridge, and plates/utensils. There is free "dial up" internet available in the rooms which is actually apparently cable internet, because it's too fast to be true dial up. (Skype worked fine.) The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, as were the maintenance staff. (Maintenance helped us in providing a converter for the blow dryer in the room.) In particular, the security staff were WONDERFUL! They were very caring, and helped us whenever we needed them, including hailing a bus/taxi. The hotel is gated, and feels very secure. There are two beaches, which are very clean and well kept. The food at the Belle Terrace is somewhat expensive, but quite good, and the hostess and waitresses were friendly. The Sat. night grill buffet food was amazing! We did eat at the Blues Bar one night, and the burgers were undercooked and I didn't care for the flavor, but I am picky about my beef, and everywhere else we ate there was good, including the smoothies and food at the Pool bar.
The location is quite convenient to Punda, and also is a quick bus/taxi ride to anywhere on the south side of the island.
Overall, this was a truly lovely hotel, and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Curacao.
