Overall, we really enjoyed this hotel. We arrived early and they accommodated us with an earlier check-in.

Avila, situated just a skip from the downtown bustle of Williamstad, was an amazing get-away from the stress of every day life. The private beaches, endless pool, mutiple dining choices, private balconies and superb service made my vacation one of fairy tales.
