“Great initiative.”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

12 years ago I used to live in the Pietermaai street and the connection with Punda was dangerous at that time. The houses generally abandoned. The Pietermaai Smal apartments project (together with several other projects in the vicinity) extended the Punda city centre to the penstraat and created style, beauty and safety. Nowadays it's possible to eat, drink, swim, dive and relax at this beautiful part of Willemstad.
The small houses kept their (Dutch) Caribean identity and I noticed many local employees working around the pool and rooms.

Small minus: Although I paid approximately 150 dollars per night (late booking?) the company did not provide me with soap etc. And my apartment did not have a porch.

Chapeau voor de projectontwikkelaars die Curacao een stukje van zichzelf hebben teruggegeven.

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room with a porch.

I recently stayed for one night in apartment 1, which is a duplex meant for one person. Pietermaai Apartments is an exceptional place to stay. The location is ideal - in easy walking distance of great restaurants and sites (Check out Kome and Miles' Jazz Cafe). The apartments are beautiful and well appointed. The service was excellent. The price is right. What more could you want?

I know Curacao for more than 15 years and always thought, something should be done with those old and beautiful colonial houses. When reading on the net, I went for Pietermaai Apartments right away and was amazed about the nice and personal service starting right from the reservation, room are as told, very nice and spacey, 2 stories with fairly decent equipped kitchen. As I was traveling single, I went for a simple 1 persons room and the bed was small to my surprise but excellent quality as was everything else. If going for small rooms in the K-block, be aware of the restaurant nearby in the complex as it might get busy and a bit noisy- I didn´t mind but others might. Overall location is very nice, bars and restaurants nearby in walking distance, as well as the beach. Felt more at home than in a Hotel.

If you don't want to spend your time in a resort, but like to walk around, have a stroll in Otrabanda, shop, have awa limunchi at the terraces, visit some musea AND in walking distance of the best restaurants near the sea or harbour: it's just the place to be! If you want to see something of the island you can rent a car or book an excursion, they always have pick-up services. The appartments are great, the service is the best. In the afternoon you can enjoy happy hour, later dinner at Mundo Bizarro or Ginger (or go into town) and in the evening they always have some activities like a Tango-evening or Cuban Night, or next door to Jazzclub Miles: never al dull moment!

Stayed here for 10 days over Christmas and New Years and we had a fantastic time. The room we had was 2 levels with a kitchen and shower. A back door lead out to patio in a tropical garden area with chairs and a small pool. We spent many evenings here and it was very relaxing. The staff were very helpful in assisting us to track down lost luggage from the airline. They went well out of their way to make our as enjoyable as possible. I would definitely return in the future and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet place within walking distance to the shopping district in Willemstad.

I stayed here for 4 nights with my family, we had the best time ! In the day we relaxed in the oase-like garden and went around exploring the surroundings and the nearby beach. In the evening we visited the bars in the pietermaaistraat, which had great Cuban music and Jazz. The apartments were very stylish and well maintained. I'd widely recommend staying there !

Pietermaai Smal Apartments offers the traveller an all-in-one experience. Guests enjoy a spacious two-floor loft complete with latest furnishings and updated bathroom and access to two delightful, private pools and lounge areas, a great nearby cafe and night-time jazz bar, all steps from the cities great sightseeing and shopping excursions. Emile, the Manager of the complex is helpful and personable. The complex is still a work in progress, so now is the time to take advantage of low rates as the neighbourhood develops.
