AAA Inspector Notes
An enduring favorite, this property is laid out among various building styles, including the blues-theme guest units directly on the oceanfront. The condo-style units are ideal for long-term guests. The jewel in the crown of this hotel is the Octagon Wing with it a contemporary design motif. However, it's the Bolivar Suite that appeals to the most discriminating traveler. Also, on site is a museum housed in the converted home of Simon Bolivar, liberator of South America. Happy hour at the beach bar is a popular gathering spot to watch sunsets. The pool bar is open Friday through Sunday. 152 units, some efficiencies and kitchens. 2-4 stories (no elevator), interior/exterior corridors.

Pros: Blues Wing #291 was majestic, leaving us utterly speechless from the moment we arrived to our last sunset. Chris is a superb resource to whom I'm forever indebted! The staff was super friendly and accommodated to all our needs. The resort is beautiful and overall a great value compared to most alternatives. Curaçao is simply a hidden gem. I would highly recommend Avila to all those who fortunately stumble upon this treasure of an island.
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: We really appreciated the friendliness of the staff. The beach on the property is really a pro. We loved going "from our room, straight to the beach."
Cons: The pillows were too flat to my liking. A choice of pillows would be appreciated.
