Our Guest Reviews

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

Aruba Sunset Beach Studios is een verzameling van knusse huisjes aan de mooiste kust van Aruba en buiten alle drukte. Het is een geweldige uitvalsbasis om het eiland te ontdekken (aan de schitterende Noordkust) en te watersporten (bij de stranden van de Westkust). De studio's zijn huiselijk, comfortabel en van alle gemakken voorzien. En als er dan toch nog iets geregeld moet worden, staan alle leden van de staf van Aruba Sunset Beach Studios direct klaar met advies, raad en daad. Kortom: Excellent!
Sunset Beach Studios never disappoints! Eve, JP, Irene, Anna and the rest of the lovely staff have thought of everything. I feel like we have been welcomed into their home. Obviously, the studios are situated in a gorgeous location within walking distance of some of the most remarkable snorkeling and beaches. A new sidewalk was installed across the street since I was last there 3 years ago and it makes it even more convenient. You can rent snorkel gear from them for $5 if you don't want to bring your own (or if yours breaks like mine did!). Ask in the office about the best (secret) snorkeling spots :) The studios have everything you need- comfortable bed, kitchen, blender, coffee maker, microwave, burners. The have also thought of the little things you didn't know you needed like large reusable grocery bags (stores do not provide bags- you have to buy them), ice chest cooler for packing food and drinks when you go explore the island or pick up fresh fish from the marina, 2 large grills outside, free library of books and games to borrow, pool toys and sand toys to borrow. It felt like we were staying with family! My favorite part of the property is the common area in the middle with beautiful green space, pool, hot tub, cushioned lounge chairs and of course the large shaded sitting area where everyone gathers to talk about their amazing day on the island. The personal touches cannot be matched. They truly live the Aruba life and love sharing it. You won't find that at any of the hotels. Eve even personally showed us a remarkable snorkeling spot- it didn't take much convincing to get her in the water with us :)
We like the Sunset Beach Studios for many reasons. They are safe, well located, well staffed, and the efficiencies have all the appliances and equipment you need. The grounds are pretty and well kept and you can BBQ on the gas grills while relaxing around the pool in the evenings. The place makes you feel at home and allows you to enjoy the island from a more Local vs a Tourist perspective... and we are 4 or 5 time repeat customers! Cheers !!
JP, Eve and wonderful staff, we loved our stay. My 40th was fabulous and Aruba is a beautiful island. Our first trip and definitely not our last! While we were here: - Swimming and snorkeling at Arashi - Snorkel to the shipwreck - Jeep tour to the Gold Mine ruins - Sunset cruise on the Delphin - Delicious dinner at Italy in Aruba & Madame Jeanette - Eagle Beach sand is breathtaking One Happy Island for sure! ♡
Aruba Sunset Beach Studios never disappoints! This was our 7th stay and we love everything about it: breezy, beachy casual atmosphere, fantastic staff, clean, comfy studios and away from the tourist area, convenient to everything the island has to offer!
It is hard to explain, how lovely this place is. It is located a little away from the high rise area rush, but easy to get there with a 20 min walk on the beach. The beautiful ocean with lots of shells is right in front of the hotel. Also in walk distance are several other beaches, watersport facilities and snorkeling areas. The hotel is cozy, with pleasant details in decoration and comfort. The vegetation in the small compound is lush and eye-pleasing. Most of all, the owners and staff are soooo friendly that you feel welcome and like an old friend. They go out of their way to help you with anything, may it be renting a jeep or making appointments for massages. We couldn't be happier.
We had a perfect stay at the studios. We spend some nights in GARDEN 1 and in OCEAN 1. We really liked both rooms, but having a view at the ocean was just amazing. We went for dinner only once because we just loved using the barbecue and have our own sunset dinner at our own terrace. Nice swimming pool and jacuzzi. Everyone that works here is super nice and friendly. Appartments come with complete kitchen, bed sleeps really good.
This was the first time we had spent a week in Aruba. We’d been here before on a cruise and weren’t sure what to expect. I’m so glad we chose here!! The rooms are great and the staff amazing but it’s the atmosphere that got us. Everyone is so welcoming, and warm. It’s the perfect place to stay in Aruba. I can’t wait to to go back.
This was THE perfect place for me to have my 1st solo trip and I was blessed to find such a gem! I felt safe, the location was great, and I enjoyed visiting with new friends (staff & guests). My kitchenette had everything I needed (dishes, blender, toaster, forman grill, stove top, etc.) and access to outdoor grill. The quiet, family feel of the hotel made for a vacation that was both restful and relaxing, but gave me a chance to connect with others as we visited from patios. I loved the location as I could see perfect sunsets, walk to the beach and prime snorkel spots, and the sidewalks/boardwalks were a nice way to get my exercise with a beautiful view. I will definitely stay here next time I am in Aruba and will recommend it to friends. Thank you for your hospitality, Irene & Marit!
We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Beach Studios in Aruba. They are so helpful! You can ask them anything they will give you ideas and tips! The room was the best! The view can’t be beat! The employees are so friendly! We loved it! This place is a treasure! I’m thankful we found this jewel!
This is our favorite place to stay when we visit Aruba. The owners and staff make us feel extremely welcomed and as if we are part of their family. The guests there are also very friendly, it’s as if your hanging out with your neighbors. The owners and office staff are very knowledgeable of the what to do and where to go. Always willing to fulfill any requests when possible. Housekeeping are also very willing to fulfill any requests if possible. They actually go out of their way by paying close attention to how the guests prefer their rooms set up. (For example, I prefer to having 2 bathroom rugs; 1 at the shower and the other at the sink and a mat beside the bed when the floor is not carpeted. I always end up using both hand towels as mats. The housekeeper, Edna, noticed and placed two mats in the bathroom and 1 beside the bed, which gave us the 2 hand towels to use. Of all my times in a hotel, no one has every paid any attention and made such an effort.) The grounds are very well maintained and beautiful with all the native plants and trees. The rooms are very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable as well. On our day of arrival, housekeeping had already laid out 2 beach towels. Such a delight, since most hotels you have to ask for 1 plus they don’t want you to take them off the property. When we return to Aruba, we will be staying here again, if there is any vacancy since this hotel is in high demand.
My wife and I are gladly joining numerous fellow-travelers who gave Aruba Sunset Beach Studios five star reviews (if I could I would have given six). Indeed, location, amenities, room and service exceed expectations. Exterior and interior are thoughtfully designed and maintained with care. I would mention a very quiet AC, a private front porch that shadows the room from the day heat, and a tidy garden/yard with a large swimming pool. JP, Eve and their team (Marit and Irene) are fantastic hosts. They know every corner of the island and seem to have first-hand experience in every activity available there. They eagerly share their insiders' input, which helps a lot whether you are taking a site-seeing drive or going to swim, to snorkel, to mountain bike, to boogie-board or to kite-surf (to mention a few) I highly recommend Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. This is the place to enjoy Aruba in its best.
We had a great holiday at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios thanks to Eef, JP, Marit and Irene. The apartments are situated at a great location with the sea across the street. Our view was spectacular. On walking distance of beautiful, quiet beaches and snorkel areas. Near kitesurfspot Fishermens Huts. Near Palm Beach. In our opinion the best location to stay. Really friendly owners and staff with personal attention to make your stay perfect. We will definitely come back in future. We are back in the Netherlands and are already missing Aruba and Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. See you soon!
We had an amazing stay in the Garden View Studio. This is the perfect place for people who don’t want an all inclusive resort or a hotel room. The studio is basically a private apartment with a kitchenette and an area to work (great for remote work). Wifi is excellent, I was able to get on work calls though sending large files electronically will be slow. The housekeeping service was excellent. The owners and every member of the staff were welcoming, friendly and so helpful. We met other guests who have been coming here for years and we can see why. Location can’t be beat. You will be just a 3 mins drive from two amazing beaches. We saw a turtle one day. They will organize a 4WD for going off roading and the rate was very good. If you like kite surfing, you are in luck as the wind is perfect for it right off the beach. I can’t say enough good things about this place and the people. There is also Baboo ship wreck right by the hotel. Good snorkeling for beginners. But Boca Catalina and Tres Trapi are better for variety of marine life and turtles.
We had a wonderful time and I'm already telling people about how fantastic Sunset Studios is. Staying there greatly enhanced the trip and we'll remember it fondly!
What a little paradise. What a great vacation. I felt I was being in the right place, when Eve and JP welcomed me. Even so did the other guests. I felt like being with family! It's great with the pool and the jacuzzi and my room was so cosy. The little kitchen had everything I needed and I had a nice own outdoor area. The cookout place with the grill is also very nice. After the happy hour under the palapa we went across the street to watch the sunset. Can't wait for my next holiday, which I already booked. The hosts are simply amazing.
One Happy Aruba Vacation. This trip was our sixth trip to Aruba and we have spent the last four stays at Sunset Beach Studios. We love the location and the atmosphere. We get the Ocean view studio if we can and love to sit on our porch and look at the ocean. The studio is clean and comfortable; the staff are all friendly and helpful. The owners, JP and Eve are also on-site and like to see how we are doing during our stay. It is a nice personal touch. Pluses include daily housekeeping, optional laundry service, snorkel/beach gear to rent, free wifi, and pool & hot tub area. It is much quieter than the hotels area which we like (we are 55-ish) but we rent a Jeep and go out to dinners, beaches and casinos, we go all over the island. Cant wait to return...Wish I was still there!
Hi Everyone! We had a safe trip home and miss Aruba and everyone at Sunset Beach Studios. Thank you for making us feel like family. You have a beautiful, clean, great location and we will be back again with friends ❤🏖
We love Aruba Sunset Beach Studios! We’ve stayed here twice- once as a couple and once with our 2 kids. We won’t stay anywhere else. Love that it is away from the crowds and close to some great snorkeling beaches. Let’s be real though, the best thing about the studios are the people. Eve and J.P., the owners, are the nicest and most helpful people you will ever meet. Marit and Irene are also amazing. Their cleaning crew is also wonderful. The studios have everything you need- small kitchen, nice bathroom, decent sized living space and the outside patios are fantastic. The courtyard with the pool and hot tub are great for relaxing and we loved making a few of our own meals on the bbq. We also loved meeting a lot of the other guests. You will not regret staying here, you will only regret leaving. Until next time...
This was our second stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. We brought our 2 children this time (age 6 & 9). Not only is Aruba an amazing island with perfect weather, if you don’t mind wind, but the studios are a great place to call “home”. You can’t beat the location and the people! The owners, J.P and Eve, are so welcoming, hospitable and kind. They brought their new puppy to visit and we love that they have cats residing at the condos- R.J. and Tiger. They, and their staff Irene and Marit, are incredibly helpful with anything you need- car rental, things to do around the island, restaurant reservations, etc. I can’t recommend this place enough! The location is away from the crowds which is a huge plus for us. The beach across the street is rocky but beautiful and the shipwreck is easily accessible by just swimming out there. We loved our first stay there as a couple and it was really fun to bring our kids to experience it. They said they won’t stay anywhere else! I have to agree with them. Hated to leave but we will definitely be back.
