    Loves it

    wonderful hotel
    After the nightmare at Avila Hotel, the Floris suites was friendly, kind and comfortable. We had a beautiful suite with full kitchen granite countertops living room 2 Tv's, free WIFI, king sized bed an balcony overlooking the pool. Awesome staff and nice restaurant. Beautiful central courtyard with birds and trees, huge pool. The hotel gives back to the community by having Gay celebration on Fridays and hosts Caribbean pride. Hotel restaurant was great with a good selection and classy chef! We would go back again because of the good feelings and happy times. It is reasonably priced and I would consider it a high end hotel. Not on the beach but they have a private beach a stone throw away by golf cart which was fun. Do rent a car for the week at Pris Car rental near the airport so you can explore the island on your schedule. Glad we had our 8th wedding anniversary at Floris with my wonderful man.

    Hates it

    Avila the place we want to forget
    booked a week at Avila. On Sunday we went sailing, came back to our room at 6pm our shoes were out of the closet, the room safe was open and our passports, jewelery, money, house keys gone. Went to the desk in a panic to call the police, manager comes out and says here is your valuables "is there anything else i can do for you". We felt violated and betrayed thinking that something has happened with our personal information. Lame excuse that they had the wrong room and drilled out the lock of the room safe. Beware the room keys have the room numbers on them so don't loose your key. After the panic had dinner, ordered shrimp pasta which was laced with pork - i'm very allergic to pork it was not on the menu. Hotel needs a facelift and management lift. Although we paid for the 4 more days in advance we drove to the Floris Hotel where we were greeted with the gay flag and a glass of champagne. Had 4 wonderful nights in Floris. In our option Avila is not a gay friendly hotel - lots of attitude and a feeling of violation. Glad we went to Floris for our 8th wedding anniversary.
