CTB Certification - Holiday Apartments

The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) is introducing certification programs for the Hospitality and Tourism Industry. These programs aim to be an incentive for service innovation, recognizing and promoting the quality level of tourism services provided. 

Holiday Apartments

The certification program for Holiday Apartments is aimed at accommodation providers renting furnished, self-catering guest units (equipped with a kitchen or kitchenette to prepare your own meals), with a maximum of 40 guest units per accommodation business. These self-catering guest units include, or have private access to a toilet, a washing stand with mirror, and a shower.


Why participate?

The benefits of having your apartments CTB certified are:

  • Quality recognition by an independent party;
  • Permission to use the CTB quality label, a visual logo that serves as a symbol for offering quality services and taking care of safety precautions;
  • Have your apartments listed on curacao.com;
  • Have your apartments included in CTB’s local and international marketing activities.



The CTB Certification Program for Holiday Apartments is executed by Curaçao Innovation & Technology Institute (CITI), a non-profit government foundation. Throughout the years CITI has gained much experience in the field of quality certification. Previous activities are the development and execution of a quality program for CASHA Apartments, and a CTB Certification Program for the Dive and Restaurant Industry. All CTB Certification Programs are evaluated, improved and repeated every two years.


How to participate?

The program is partially subsidized, making participation also available to relatively small-sized service providers. For the first 70 participants participation costs are only ANG. 250,- per business.
