We had an amazing holiday in Curaçao and we stayed here for a week. The apartment was spacey, the kitchen well equipped, the bedrooms very nice and comfortable, wifi working good. Safe parking spaces. The best things about Waterside Apartments are the location, about 15 minutes away from the capital city (very nice if you are looking for a quiet,...

Wow, wow, love this place, the setting is just perfect, idyllic and the most amazing sunsets, snorkeling/diving/swimming just below the apartments, close to Centrum Supermarket and other amenities. We hired a car and explored every corner of the island, we love Curacao so much that we back next year again. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, a very relaxed...

Excellent apartments located at 10 seconds walk to the beach and a beautiful diving site: Turtles, Eagle Ray's and lovely unspoiled corals. Great for beginners, but also advanced divers: reef goes to at least 45m. Also excellent for night dives. Very hospitable host and hostess, Large and clean apartments, gets cleaned couple of times a week, fantastic ocean view from...

We stayed two weeks in apartment "Kreeft" (not on the sea-side). Two bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen and living room. Even though we were initially disappointed that we couldn't stay in one of the apartments at the sea-side, we were very happy with a private garden. BBQ is really crappy, but we could use the main grill on the big terrace....

We stayed two weeks at Waterside, moving from one apartment to the next as there was no one apartment or studio available anymore for 2 consecutive weeks. We ended up staying in 3 different apartments on the ground floor, all with ocean view. The apartments were all very spacious, had cozy sitting areas and each one has its own outside...

We booked studio Kiwa for 14 days. The studio was spacious and the wind blows right through it, so we did not have the use the airco. Nice terrace with sunloungers and sea views. From the house you have access to a small beach. We visited several beaches on the island, but this beach was best for snorkeling. Tine, the...

Location is fabulous: Right on a tiny non-commercialized beach in a small town, you get away from the touristy crowd - and yet you're only a 20 minute drive from Punda or a 10 minute drive from Blauwbaai or Kokomo. Our apartment (Kreft) sadly didn't have an ocean view, but did have a nice enclosed garden area; and we spent...

We stayed here in a two bedroom, the ocean fronts were all taken so we did not have a ocean view but we were only staying a few days so it was not a deal breaker for us. There is a common patio area overlooking the ocean which is very nice and a grill for everyone to use (which we...

The best of the Waterside Apartments a the location direct by the ocean and the small, very nice beach were often frequented by locals and divers. Our host Tine was very nice and helpful with all our questions. The best supermarket of the island, the Centrum supermarket, is only a short drive away. Our studio was upstairs. It was nice...

We were researching places to stay for our 1st visit to Curacao & I stumbled on a suggestion of this place on a dive forum. Checked it out & read the wonderful reviews, saw it was a good more centrally located place. Not right in town, but not too far away, closer to the airport.... we chose the "dive/drive pkg."...
