PM78 Urban Oasis Curacao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2014

We stayed here for two weeks in February. We spent the first week in the Studio Apartment and the second week in the 5* Apartment.

The location is excellent. You couldn't ask for a more central location. You are a 10-15 minute walk from the floating bridge (downtown), 10 minute walk to the Avila Hotel (beach available weekdays), 10 minute walk to the markets, 20 minute walk to a supermarket and if you are really keen, a 45 minute walk to Mambo beach (Seaquarium). We never once felt unsafe walking at night. It was dark when we walked to supper and of course dark when we returned. As a matter of fact there are neighborhood security guards out at night so it really is quite safe. We ate at 18 different restaurants during our stay and all but one were within a 10 minute walk!

We rented a car for one day to go visit the beaches on the north west part of the island. Very beautiful and well worth the trip. Other than that we found plenty to amuse ourselves with in walking distance of PM78.

Cindy and David were very friendly and helpful. If you have any issues they are addressed immediately.

As I said at the beginning week one was in the studio suite. It is small so I couldn't imagine spending 2 weeks in it. Having said that, it is fully functional and has a small fridge for your beer and a coffee machine. There is a nice little sitting area on the front porch over looking the street. A privacy screen separates you from the City apartment. We did a lot of exploring the first week while staying here.

The second week was in the 5* apartment. I really cant add much more to what has already been said in other reviews. The place is very industrial and modern, right up our alley. The views were awesome and the sunsets incredible. We watched the sun set from the small "beach" every night. The place is fully stocked with everything you need to stay and eat in if you so desire.

The a/c in both apartments was very effective and very quiet. The beds are very very firm and as we have encountered in St. Lucia, only have a top sheet to cover you.

If you are considering a stay here, don't hesitate, pull the trigger and book it today, you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: You really have to try out the 5* apartment!

The apartment has everything you need including AC, kitchen with appliances and even umbrellas and a cool box to take on a day trip. It was spacious and clean. We had a warm welcome with chilled wine and fresh fruits that we enjoyed siting at the porch. I would definitely recommend and, the owners were very nice and attentive specially her.
Only thing I didn't like is that their airport pick up service was pricier than a regular taxi. Also, the area is not the safest and we had a minor issue with one passer by in the early evening coming back from a day out, but nothing to worry too much about.
The chill-out bar PM78 is partners with is a great place Ibiza-like, would also recommend.

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with the most beautiful view and best service ever, this is it! The apartment was gorgeous and the private pool with ocean side view was perfect. The location is excellent, close to several wonderful restaurants, yet you fell like you are in your own personal paradise. The owners were so accommodating and helpful, we fell in love with this place. I can honestly say it was an extremely pleasant experience from the first minute we arrived until we had to leave!

We stayed in the 5* Apartment for 7 days during Christmas and had really high expectations before arriving. PM78 exceeded all of them! First of all, the view when entering the apartment is priceless. From the entrance door you can see the big kitchen, the pool and the ocean. It's a luxurious apartment with everything you can possibly need for a week. Cindy and David are very welcoming. They live on the top floor, which is very convenient if you have any questions. However, you get a feeling that you have the whole building for yourself. Although PM78 has a great location, I would really recommend renting a car. It's only a 10 minutes walk into Willemstad, but if you want to visit the exotic beaches around the island it's good to have a car. The distances are not very long so you can see a lot of the island if you have a car. We also used the car when we went to the supermarkets to buy food. There are some really good supermarkets, but they are not in a walking distance. Since the kitchen and terrace was so great we ended up cooking our own dinners most of the evenings. Although, there are some good restaurants nearby. To see the sunset from the pool was awesome. Our children, age 12 and 10, loved the pool (so did we). Usually the pictures on internet look much better than the reality. In this case it is the opposite. The pool was much larger than we have expected and the kitchen and the rooms even nicer than the pictures.
The neighborhood was very interesting. Many houses were renovated and a lot of restaurants are opening. I guess that it has been a quite rough neighborhood some years ago, but now it's very nice and still developing.
Finally, my advice: Don't bother to look for any other alternatives. It can’t get any better!

Awesome place, not much more i can add to the reviews written by others. Location is perfect in the middle of the historic district, plenty of good restaurants and bars to chose from. We stayed in the smallest apartment, but perfect for our needs, not where you aim to spend the majority of your stay on a Caribbean island anyway. Breakfast or beer on the patio was perfect. We'll be back!!

This place makes you feel like home away from home — trendy enough for a perfect vacation, yet cosy and functional enough to perform daily routines like simple cooking etc. Room is quite spacious, bed is comfy and wide, and outdoor terrace was very handy for breakfasts.

The location is really nice: PM78 is situated in a quite safe neighbourhood that comes alive at night time and offers lots of amazing dining options. Willemstad Old Town is 10-15min walk.

If you missed the room with a pool, no need to be upset — PM78 is friendly with Saint Tropez Ocean Club (situated on the same street), very luxurious and trendy resort which has it's own pool, bar, restaurant and lounge. Entry is free for PM78 guests and spending couple of days there was a true bliss.
