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 have been to so many places on the planet but this particular hotel is my personal paradise! It's Aruba totally unexpected. Intimate, relaxing, out of the crowd but across from the beach. This hotel is right past the big main hotels on the main street. The staff is friendly and goes out of their way to help in any way possible. The owners are always there and always VERY friendly. You can tell that they take great pride in their work and property. The gardens and pool deck area. Comfortable loungers, tables, chairs, beautiful flowers and plants, well-lit after dark, never crowded, Wi-Fi, perfect for reading or just chilling with your favorite drink. Pool and beach were both accessible and convenient. The parking is easy. The rooms are simply perfect: well decorated, they have all of the amenities that you need. I know there were other guests there but we felt like we had the place to ourselves. Quiet location. No noise from traffic, nightclubs, restaurants. During our stay, we never had noise of any kind from neighboring guests either. I have stayed with them 9 times and every year i go back to Aruba this is the ONLY place I want to stay. Thank you for making my trips to Aruba perfect. I couldn't ask for a better place to stay or all around amazing experience.
For 21 years we have been coming to Aruba, staying in the large hotels. This was a completely different experience. We felt at home immediately as did the other resort guests - a congenial experience. Intimate, bucolic, charming, hospitable, comfortable. Eve and JP, the owners, are simply delightful!! Jacky, housekeeping and Luis the night watchman were always friendly, attentive and accommodating. The sunsets were breathtaking. New Years at the beach with Eve, JP and the resort guests watching the fireworks, enjoying their company and welcoming the new year was a fabulous experience. 23 days/nights of relaxation, fabulous beaches, great company/service/surroundings in a homelike setting...what more could you want.
Gedurende 14 jaar huren we jaarlijks voor een aantal weken een appartement bij Sunset Aruba. We zijn daar altijd bijzonder tevreden over: een prima appartement, een vriendelijk en behulpzaam team, een fraaie tuin en natuurlijk iedere dag genieten van de zonsondergang.
I was welcomed by Eve and quickly made friends with the other guests. This location was quiet and the room was comfortable for me. Snorkeling gear was available for guests. I appreciated to local knowledge regarding swimming and snorkeling locations. They also suggested I rent a bicycle which worked well for me to see the island
I have stayed 3 times at the Sunset Beach Studios, I love the ocean view studios! Owners and staff are very nice people, they will help you in any way to have a prefect holiday. The location is fantastic, right on the coast and only a 10 min walk to the High Rise area. All the details inside the studios makes it special and makes you feel straight away at home!
We rented an oceanfront room for three days over Old Year's Night and into the new year. The owners, Eve and JP, are very friendly, personable, kind, and run a clean, quaint and charming inn of studio apartments. We were able to see all Palm Beach fireworks from our comfortable, well-appointed porch. We walk everywhere, and this location is about a mile north of the Palm Beach high rise hotels, yet, far more user-friendly, feeling like home, but still accommodated. My husband and I highly recommend, the Aruba Sunset Beach Studios, and will return to stay if the opportunity presents.
JP, Eve and Jackie are some of the friendliest people I've met! They make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The rooms are spacious and all have king size beds. There is a common area to BBQ as well as just relax. The grounds are well taken care of and very beautiful. We stayed for 6 nights and then had to move as they were booked for the length of time we needed. At our new place we didn't have an element to cook on and so asked Eve if they had an extra one could we rent one from them? She immediately got on the phone and JP came over with a brand new cook top! And just politely asked that we return it. So nice! We watched the fireworks New Years on the beach across the street and were simply amazed! I'm sure we had the best view on the island! Have never experienced anything like that in my life! All in all a big for sunset beach and the staff!
You haven't experienced New Years until you spend it here in Aruba. At Sunset Beach Studio apartments, you are a few feet from the Caribbean and you are in the perfect location to watch the fireworks across the island but the highlight is the amazing show put on by the high rise hotels. It is absolutely breathtaking. Everyone in Aruba gets into the spirit and the fireworks start very early and keep on going until way past midnight!! People fill the beach in front of the apartments to watch the amazing show across the water. Even the folks on the beach bring huge amounts of fireworks to share. Being so close to the water allowed us to watch the sunset every day and relax and enjoy our visit in our very comfortable surroundings. The studios are very nice, well kept and the staff and surroundings are excellent! This is an easy place to get to, has beautiful surroundings and is a great way to relax and enjoy a vacation.
We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Studios over Christmas Break. My husband & I stayed in Ocean 2, and our teenage kids stayed in Garden 7 & 8, right near the pool. We have been to Aruba before, and have stayed at the Hyatt and the Holiday Inn. Sunset Studios was a much better value given our large family (6). We come to Aruba for the kiteboarding and windsurfing, and Sunsets location is just minutes from the fisherman's huts where we rent equipment from Aruba Active Vacations. Great snorkeling right across from our deck, beautiful Arashi Beach just a quick car or bike ride to the north, and the Ritz Carlton and other high rise hotels another quick ride or walk to the south. It is so nice to park your car right in front of your room - no elevators or weaving through the corridors of a large hotel. Cozy garden and pool area was very peaceful and relaxing. We watched the sunset every evening from our covered porch. The kids loved biking to the Pelican Peer for great wings & burgers. Hubby & I enjoyed happy hour at Moomba Bar, near the Holiday Inn. The entire staff was friendly and very accommodating. JP the owner was always available to answer any questions, and he provided lots of good information on activities and restaurants (better than a concierge). Sunrise Studios feels like home - we will be back.
We had a wonderful stay at Aruba sunset beach studios for 2 weeks. A lovely place with a cozy garden and pool area . Great location at Malmok beach, a 2 1/2 min. drive to Arashi Beach, the best beach in Aruba! (According to all the locals!) Awesome sunsets across the Street. Clean and comfortable studios. Owner and Staff are Very friendly and serviceminded! Helped us with a rental car upon arrival and grocery shopping for a small fee since we had a late arrival. Much appreciated! We will definitely come back to this lovely place!!! Ia Anders & Viggo
We just spent 10 glorious days in Aruba at Sunset Beach Studios. Such a lovely spot away from the busy high rise area and so quiet! We used our fully stocked kitchenette and the shared barbecue to cook many of our meals. As it was such a peaceful spot we didn't want to leave to go out! One mile walk to the busy area is close enough. We loved our own private outdoor sitting area with a table/chairs, comfy chair and couch. The gardens around Sunset are gorgeous with something blooming all the time. Our room was clean and inviting and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. Thank you for such a lovely vacation! We hope to return.
Another Great Visit at Sunset Studios. I think this is my 4th time staying at Sunset, I just love the place that much. The mornings are so gorgeous, you can walk across the street and sit on the little bench and watch the colors of Aruba come alive. Sunsets are simply spectacular and many of the guests go across the street with a drink and enjoy the sunset and each other's company. The rooms are always kept very clean, the reception staff are very nice and accommodating, and the location is convenient yet private. I enjoy the other travelers, we are usually a group of people who like to avoid the crowds and the show of the high rises, preferring a more laid back and relaxing time. Very good restaurants are nearby, a great grocery store, and if you want to get into the crowds they are not very far off. The rates here are so reasonable they make a 10 day stay possible for me. I encourage you to get off the beaten path if you are the type who likes the road less traveled. Of utmost concern to me is safety as I traveled alone, and I felt very safe here and always do. Thank you for another great visit. I miss Aruba so much!
Tiene todo lo que se requiere para pasar una buena noche, los administradores son muy amables y atentos a ayudar, nos fue muy bien, cuando llegamos la habitación estaba impecable, nos ayudaron con la reserva del renta car, muy fácil llegar y su localización ayudar para llegar a cualquier parte, recomiendo rentar un vehículo para poder visitar toda la isla, podrían mejorar en el aseo diario. Pasamos unas gratas vacaciones.
This was our first stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. There are several small units surrounding a pool and garden blooming with flowers. Each unit has a small kitchenette and air conditioning. The rooms are clean and the king size bed is awesome. The studios have hot water and a small outdoor patio with table and chairs. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets! If you like quiet and quaint, this is a real gem! Everyone was super friendly and helpful.
En weer een heerlijke tijd gehad bij JP en Eef. Nu in de grote oceanview. Heerlijk uitgerust, veel gelezen. Lekker gegeten bij Gasparito (een aanrader!), Bingo en Moomba. Ongeveer de 9e keer hier en komen volgend jaar zeker weer terug. Masha Danki!
If you looking for all inclusive, room service and closeness to party zones this hotel is definitely not for you. But if you want peace and quiet, nice view over the sunsets from your own "terass" with an optional glass of wine (your own bought), closeness to the ocean, nice rooms and a small but very useful cooking place. Really nice and helpful personal, nice outdoor area this is really a place for you. One thing is that you may need a rental car for your own convenience to get to supermarkets and restaurants etc. But there are local buses just outside as well. Me and my wife really enjoyed the stay.
Just returned from 10 days at Sunset Beach Studios and look froward to returning! We had an ocean view suite and loved waking up and looking out over the ocean. The resort is welcoming and relaxed, very quiet and peaceful. We enjoy dinner out and casino at the high rises where it is busy but enjoy the peace of our own studio apartment. The gardens are beautiful and it is well kept and clean. The pool and hot-tub are nice after a hot day out exploring beaches as well. A nice touch is the laundry service, very reasonable, done that day folded and returned to your room. We were able to pack a bit more lightly. Plus you can swap out for clean beach towels/bath towels when you need to - you don't have to leave your room key like at the all-inclusives. They trust you not to steal them. :)
My wife and I recently spent 3 weeks in Aruba. One week was spent at the Marriott Surf Club and two weeks at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. Based on the fact we stayed at both places, we can honestly say our preferred home base for our stay in Aruba was the tranquility and relaxed friendly atmosphere at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. It was a real pleasure to interact with the owners and the office staff from the initial booking with answers to all my questions to the “Goodbye Hug” at the end of our trip. Unfortunately, the owners JP and Eve were off on their own vacation the day after we met them so we didn’t have the opportunity to interact with them during our stay. After meeting Jacky and Suzanne the office staff, we quickly realized JP and Eve left Sunset Studios in very capable hands. It didn’t matter what our request or question was, from renting a car, to comments on restaurants or just a friendly chat, Jacky and Suzanne were a real pleasure to talk to. Everyone we ran into from the other guests (many of them are return customers to Sunset Studios), to the office staff or the cleaning staff were very accommodating and friendly. The individual units are clean and comfortable, and the view of the ocean across the street was amazing! My wife and I would not hesitate for a second in recommending a stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios to anyone looking for a nice, clean relaxed place to stay while in Aruba. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to all of the staff for making our stay a most memorable one. Masha danki, Aruba ta Bunita.
Paradise Just spectacular! Go no further and check this incredible place out. Beauty of Aruba is surpassed by this wonderful staff and lovely place to stay. Everything one could ask for is here. Views, clean spacious rooms, perfect location and the best staff around. Kathleen and Jerry
We had a wonderful stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. The view from our ocean view studio was amazing! The studio had all that we needed, including a large fridge and kitchenette. It's located in a quiet area, directly opposite to the sea, and a short drive to the high rise hotels, supermarkets and Oranjestad. We live loved also the beautiful garden with pool and Jacuzzi. Highly recommended. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay here again!
