Our Guest Reviews

Please take a look at what some of our guests had to say about their stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios.

I had such a wonderful time staying here. While the views from the studio are perfect, the hospitality from JP, Eve and the staff was something that made my stay that much more special. You've created a wonderful oasis on this beautiful island. THANK YOU!!!
My husband and I stayed at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios during COVID after sheltering in place for 8 months dealing with health issues. We were looking for a relaxing, friendly, safe place to "get away from it all" for a week. Sunset Beach Studios was absolutely perfect! The location is convenient but away from the resorts and congestion. The beaches are within walking distance and the sunsets out the front door are beautiful! The self-catering studios are just enough to get by to avoid having to eat at restaurants for every meal. The hosts, JP and Eve...and Marit and Iris, were so helpful, amiable, and supportive of a couple of old folks just trying to have a relaxing vacation. They told us where to go for good eats, snorkeling, and excursions. They were always available if necessary but respected our privacy and quiet time. I highly recommend Aruba Sunset Beach Studios for anyone that is looking for a laid back, casual, but very suitable place to stay. We will be back!
My partner and I just spent a week at the Aruba Sunset Beach Studios and could not have been more pleased. JP and Eve are fantastic hosts and the property is exactly what we were looking for. We travel throughout the tropics extensively so we know what we are looking for, and this place ticked all of our boxes. We stayed in the Large Ocean Front Studio, and it was the right choice for us. This is what we look for (and got!) *Water front. Yep, 50 yards from the front door. Not a sandy beach here, but easy water access. Plenty of sandy choices within walking distance. * Good snorkeling. Not only is there a wreck to snorkel right out front 100 yards out in 8 feet of water, but 75% of the best shore snorkeling spots on the island are all within a 5 minute drive. * Indoor/outdoor living. The studio has a huge shaded front terrace looking right at the beach, multiple sliding doors open the entire studio to terrace giving it that airy indoor outdoor feel we always look for. * Clean and comfortable. The space was super clean and well maintained. The studio was huge, with 2 different indoor seating areas, very comfortable king size bed, fully equipped, spacious kitchen, ample storage, big bathroom and shower with lots of hot water, and excellent air conditioner. * Convenient. The biggest and best grocery store on the island is 5 minutes away making self catering fun and easy. Don't want to cook? Some of the best "local" restaurants are also nearby. * Value. Frankly. at this price point I was shocked at the quality of the accommodations. If you want beaches with rows of lounge chairs and cocktail service with lots of people to watch, be immersed in the night life of Aruba, sip cocktails to the constant thumping of the DJ's, shop at the name brand stores and eat at the trendy tourist spots, keep looking, this is not for you. If you want beauty, peace and quite, super friendly vibes and abundant uncrowded opportunities to enjoy water based activities, then stop looking and just book it right now!
We did some wonderful things: scuba dived wrecks and reefs with Aqua Windie’s, went to Zeerover and with a 4x4 to the Natural Pool, the Natural Park, Caves, Natural Bridges, Wish Rock Garden and Frenchmen’s Pass. Little things that mattered: BBQ fish, fried plantains, sharing meal and drinks and stories of skiing in Utah with JP and Raul. We usually stay at the Hi-Rise hotel time share but next time we’ll book 2-4 weeks HERE!!! Thank you Eef, JP + Edna!!! Kim and Josh from California, USA
Sunset Team, Thank you so much for your hospitality. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed our time here. We hope to come back soon. Nataly & Juan Carlos. P.S. Thanks again for those DELICIOUS MANGOS!! 😊
Amazing Place, Amazing Porch, Great Hospitality! We stayed at the large ocean view room for 2 weeks and had a fantastic stay. Sitting at the porch admiring the sea is incredibly relaxing. We had all our meals there and since I had to work a couple of days while in Aruba I also set my "office" on the porch. The studio is very well appointed. Lots of space and all the kitchen tools you need to cook a nice meal (we cooked quite a bit in the kitchen and also used the gas grill in the common patio). You can walk from the studios to Malmok beach (a small cove with great snorkeling) and you can even just walk out into the sea by crossing the street! It's not a beach but with water shoes and snorkel gear you can go explore the wreck you can see from the porch. We were learning kite-surfing during our trip and the kiting beach is just a 10 min walk away with Palm Beach just another 5 - 8 mins further south. Eve, JP, Marit and the whole team were incredibly helpful when booking tours and giving us tips. We even got to spend some quality time with Rusty Jr. their friendly cat who brought us a small dead lizard as a hospitality gift. We could not recommend this place more. Kevin & Aneliya
We had a wonderful stay at Sunset recently. We chose to stay here as our own home in Aruba was rented out for 4 days. I own a home here since 2000, and have been enjoying morning runs along Malmok since then. I ran past Aruba Sunset Beach Studios nearly every day, and always noticed them, thinking what a nice place it would be to stay - and it ended up exceeding my expectations! Eve, JP, and Marit were all absolutely wonderful for all of their help, advice, and chatting about Aruba. We are so happy to have met them! They went out of their way to make our stay perfect. The rooms are completely equipped with everything you need, including a full size kitchen fridge and capabilities for cooking both in the kitchen and on the outdoor grill. In fact we cooked in every night, and enjoyed sitting out in the garden under the stars, enjoying the quiet, nice food, and wine. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and the king bed super comfortable. The location is truly amazing to get up every morning, walk out the door and step to the ocean just a few steps away. And the beautiful sunsets - we also watched the sunset every night either from our covered porch or just steps away at the ocean. Absolutely highly recommend to stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios, you will love it!
First of all, Marit, Eve & JP were all fantastic for the help, advice, or random chat. Marit took care of all of our booking needs. Car/taxi, sailing trips, ATV tour, in room massage. It was a big help knowing she could arrange all this so we could enjoy ourselves. The apartment was perfect and comfortable. Ocean 2. I could live there. I loved the porch, sitting out with a beer, watching the sunset over the ocean after a long day at the beach and a shower. The bed was large and comfortable. Bathroom immaculate with a giant walk in shower. Kitchen had all the supplies we needed and more. Studio did not make us feel cramped, even when we had rest days from getting too much sun. (Fair skinned!) Location was perfect. In the middle of all these great beaches, walking distance to some if you wanted to have a few drinks, or a short drive from the northern beaches. Would definitely recommend renting a car. Just for the sake of exploring, grocery, and getting around the whole island. I spent a lot of time looking into hotels / apartments. Was glad we decided to stay here.
Hidden Gem Wow..... if you’re looking to get away from the crowds this hidden gem is one to try. I only stayed one night prior to the start of my timeshare and they graciously accommodated me. What a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere with an uncrowded beach just steps away. The owners and staff are very welcoming and ensure all is well with your stay. Just relaxing on my private lounge area watching the sunset with a cold Balashi and cigar was everything. In the future I will add some nights to my annual trip to wind down before returning home.
From the arrival greeting to our departure, our week at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios was perfect. The rooms are equipped with everything you might possibly need and the location couldn't be better if you want something a little more chill than hotel row. It is walk-able to some of the best beaches on the island and the views are beautiful. We really enjoyed having the pool and Jacuzzi to enjoy after coming in from the beach each day. The Jacuzzi and lounge chairs were the perfect place to watch the stars each night. Eve, JP, and Marit were wonderful hosts and full of helpful recommendations. We would absolutely stay here again and will be recommending it to all of our friends!
Cher Eve et JP Merci pour votre chaleureux accueil! Merci pour vos recommandations de restaurants, sites de plongées, les excursions et les belles plages. Votre site est superbe. C'est un endruit calme, propre et serein où l'on peut profiter du bel air. La femme de chambre fait également un travail remarquable. Nous n'avions pas pu demander mieux comme endruit pour souligner notre 2ème anniversaire de mariage. La vue sur l'ocean et les couchers de soleil sont tout simplement merveilleux ♥ Merci pour la belle semaine passée avec vous!
We stayed eight relaxing nights at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. Hosts and team were spot on and went out of their way to make our anniversary/birthday celebrations special! This was the perfect place for us! Clean, full-sized kitchen appliances, beautifully upgraded bath, comfy bed and sitting area. We used the refreshing pool after days on the beach, and the grill for a stay-in dinner. Eve, JP, Marit and team were so accommodating and helpful, providing us with island info. Location is convenient to EVERYTHING! Just a few minutes from best beach (Arashi), best snorkeling (Boca Catalina), and best kite/wind surfing on the island. If you like your own quiet space with an amazing view of the turquoise waters, this is your home away from home! We also felt very safe on the island during the COVID-19 pandemic, with hand sanitizing/washing required before entering each business, employees at businesses wearing masks, social distancing, and stringent entry requirements for visiting the island. The tourist level when we visited was low (15% of normal) so the restaurants and beaches were wide open. It's a great time to visit Aruba!!!
We spent over 62 days with these outstanding studio units. Located directly across from the warm gentle sea and able to watch the sunsets daily. Most importantly, the Staff and fellow guests were friendly, amiably and fun. I fully intend to return next year-(2021).
If you care about luxury, stop reading. If you don't, this is your place! We just came back from 10 days at Sunset and we could not have had a better time. The place is comfortable, clean, spacious and welcoming (grill and Jacuzzi a plus). We went to Aruba to kite, and to our surprise we found out that our hosts, JP and Eve, are kiters too! What a treat. We even tried kite foiling together in front of the studios. We now have new friends and a place to come back to. Thank you for a wonderful time :)
We just stayed here in the large Ocean view and smaller connecting Ocean view for two nights. We wished we had stayed longer. The apartments were comfortable and completely functional to hang out in, relax and cook dinner. The grounds are very tropical and the pool refreshing. They have drinks you can purchase in the office and snorkeling gear you can rent. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The owners JP and Eve are super friendly and want to ensure you have a great time; Eve even took us snorkeling to her favorite spot to see turtles (which we did). We loved cooking and having dinner outside overlooking the sea and the sunset, sitting at the large dining table playing games and relaxing. We moved from here to the Marriott and were immediately missing our apartment at Aruba Sunset Beach. Five stars are for what it is and what it isn’t. This is not a posh five star resort. The five stars are earned for being exactly what they are- a cozy, comfortable, friendly and ideally located stay. We would happily return!
Your new website is very nice with more lovely pictures! Can't wait to come back in March 2021!
Sunset Beach Studios is a great place to stay while in Aruba. The rooms are large, clean and have everything you could want. The location is perfect if you like beaches. It's within a mile of 3-4 great beaches and they have more palapas every year. Many great restaurants are just a short drive away. The happy hour up at the lighthouse is always great because when that sunsets every night over that ocean it is a sight you'll never forget. JP, Eve and all the staff are great people to work with.
Being the last group to leave Sunset last month was so sad. But thank you to Eve and JP for daily information and working with us to get home. When JP came to Arashi Beach to give us the latest info, I knew it was bad! We wouldn't want to be anywhere else during this scary time. For sure our Aruba Home and Family! Can't wait for next year! Take care of each other and Stay Safe!
We arrived safely in the States. We were delayed but we made it. We were the last flight out of Aruba. All of the Aruban people on the tarmac waived goodbye to us. We want to thank all of you for our wonderful stay. You kept us informed and were always cheerful. We love Sunset and everyone on the staff. We will never stay anywhere else. Thank you again for everything.
As usual our time at Sunset was superb. The family atmosphere was so wonderful. We are grateful for each and everyone. Love Duane and Andrea
