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

Wonderful Trip to Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. Just back from a short but wonderful last-minute trip to Aruba. We were looking for a quiet place to stay, away from the high-rise area, but close enough to walk or drive to it if we wanted to. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios is a gem and the perfect place for us. No frills and immaculately clean, the studios have everything you need including a kitchenette, a small porch, pool, loungers, hot tub, and so much more. Located just across the small road to Malmok beach, you can sit and watch kite surfers all day and enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever see. Each day we walked either to the high-rise area or up to Boca Catalina or Tres Trapi (3 steps), to some of the best snorkel areas on the island. The true secret to what makes this a perfect place is the staff. Marit is so helpful and sweet and we greatly appreciated all the recommendations from quiet beaches to visit, to dinner, to even decorating our porch for my birthday. She made our trip so much better. It’s clear why so many of the guests have been coming here for 20+ years. We are already planning our return in March!
Aruba is zon, zee, strand. Dit kun je allemaal vinden op de high rise: bars, restaurants, casino's, marmer en klatergoud. Het zal duidelijk zijn, daar ben ik niet van. Geef mij: een paar honderd meter lopen, een compleet appartement: waar je geen hotelkamernummer bent, maar een persoon.
I sound like a broken record, but each trip back to Sunset Beach Studios is special! What exactly draws me back there? First class accommodations, Friendly and Gracious Staff, Million Dollar Views, Friendly, Interesting Guest, Beautiful Lush Gardens, Sparkling Pool and Hot Tub, Safe and Secure Surroundings, Great Location. These are the things that have kept me coming back year after year!
Where do I begin? I could go on forever about Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. My husband and I just returned from spending another fabulous vacation at Sunset. Everything about Sunset is great. The owners JP and Eve, the staff Marit, Renee' and the maid staff all go out of their way to make sure guests have everything and anything they may need or want. They will make reservations for you if need be, set up tours for you, etc. The grounds of this quaint place are beautifully well kept. Everything you need is in your room, dishes, coffee pot, pots and pans, etc, along with 2 gas grills on the grounds. If you don't want to leave for meals, there is no need to. Beautiful swimming pool, jacuzzi and community palapa on the grounds as well. Close to many beautiful beaches, a five minute drive to the high rise area for restaurants, etc. This beautiful quiet place sits directly across from the ocean where you can watch stunning sunsets each evening as well as the "local" kite surfers in the evening!!! Again, we cannot say enough about this wonderful place and the staff! We have been coming here to stay for many years and hope to continue to come for many more. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, peaceful place to stay....this is it!!!! Plus, we have always met some really wonderful people while staying here! You will not be disappointed if you book here!!!!
Heaven away from home !! JP and Eve, their staff go above and beyond. The studios are quaint, super clean, with kitchens and unbelievable views!!! Hard to leave these wonderful new friends. Will definitely be returning soon.
Superb place to stay in Aruba. Sunset Beach Studios was a truly superb place to stay. The hotel is very private, is located in a premium location, very close to the main attractions and to the beach. I'd heavily recommend the place for both couples who want to have some private time or for families or friends looking to spend time under the sun. Thanks so much JP, Eve, and Marit were amazing hosts. Eve even helped us get groceries before we arrived at the hotel, we'd definitely use the hotel again in the future.
It was our first time on Aruba as well as the first time in the Caribean Sea. We stayed 13 nights in September/October 2021 and would have stayed longer finally, but our vacation time was over unfortunately 😞. Thanks to the really nice, friendly and always helpful Sunset Team we missed nothing and our expectations were exceeded by far! That's holiday as you can see it in promotion videos - but in reality 👍. Dear Eve, Marit and J.P. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! We will recommend your lovely place further, but only to good friends 😉. Best regards from cold and wet Germany Heike & Ralf
To everyone at Sunset: thanks for everything! We had a wonderful time. We are truly going to miss R.J. aka SUNSET and the island! We hope to see you all again soon! ♥
We waren voor de derde keer te gast bij Aruba Sunset Beach Studios en het was weer uitstekend. De combinatie van gastvrijheid, authenticiteit, rust en persoonlijk contact, naast het comfort van de studio's, doen ons telkens terugkomen. Als iets nodig is, wordt het onmiddellijk geregeld, verder is alles prima in orde. En: weg van de massa... Dank JP, Eef, Marit en Reneé, tot de volgende keer!
Top verblijf, niet aan een (zon) beach + De faciliteiten in zijn algemeen. We hebben heerlijk koel geslapen. Je kunt in de kamer koken maar er staan twee goeie gasbarbecues bij het zwembad waar we dankbaar gebruik van gemaakt hebben. Dat was echt top. We hoefden alleen maar wat vlees in de supermarkt te kopen en konden dat zo op de gasbarbecue gooien. Verder is er een zwembad, heerlijk om, als je terug komt naar de kamer, even in af te koelen. Ook is er een jacuzzi, vrij toegankelijk voor de gasten. Dit voegde voor ons echt heel veel toe. - De locatie was niet aan een zon-strand. Wil je naar het strand dan moet je echt met de auto. Sowieso moet je echt een auto huren.
JP helped us getting our bearings and groceries on day one, enabling us to make diner, after a long flight, which was greatly appreciated. Their relaxed attitude helped us to wind down, as did the pool, the jacuzzi and the sunsets. Crossing the road to the sea to snorkel and visit the shipwreck is also a pretty nice experience. A great place to stay for watersports aficionados. Robbie and Vanessa
Can't Imagine a Better Spot When Spending Time in Paradise. We booked this small lodging during covid with the hope of getting away from it all. It exceeded all of our expectations! The location is literally steps from the ocean and we had a front row view of the sunset every evening. We rented a car so we were just minutes from all the best beaches and dining but it is very walkable to the Palm Beach area.. Our front porch view was fabulous so we either BBQed or ordered take-out for the best dining on the island. The management was super friendly/helpful and a joy to visit with. And lastly the swimming pool/hot tub on site felt like it was for our private use and we enjoyed it every evening. My recommendation is just go and see for yourself!
FANTASTIC stay, SUPER studios, GREAT location and super FRIENDLY staff. We will definitely be back ♥
Mooi appartement met ocean view. Met ons gezin hebben we een heerlijke vakantie gehad bij Aruba Sunset. De appartementen zijn prachtig gelegen en hebben een ocean view. Je krijgt een ontzettend goede service. De appartementen zijn comfortabel en hebben een mooi terras. Ook is er in de bloemrijke binnentuin en een fijn zwembad. Heel veel complimenten voor deze mooie, aantrekkelijke accommodatie.
I can highly recommend this place. It is a quiet and pleasant apartment complex, very close to the best small beaches on the Island. If you are looking for a place without the mass tourism, this is where you want to go. The price quality ratio is way ! higher than for example the Ritz Carlton. The people are very nice and everyday a cleaning lady comes and cleans your room. The owner JP and his wife are very nice people and will help you with advice on sailing or biking (ask JP !). If you want to mingle with the other guests it's possible, but if you more looking for rest no problem. The garden is very nice and pleasant. This is my favorite spot in Aruba (been here 10 times).
Verzorgd verblijf en vriendelijke personeel. Heel leuk, klein verblijf. Alles was zoals op foto’s. Zeer verzorgd en schoon. Personeel is zeer vriendelijk en helpt je overal mee, inchecken, printen, tips,… Ligging is dichtbij het stand en andere plaatsten zijn makkelijk te bereiken met bus of fiets.
Small apartment complex with charm. We stayed at this owner operated apartment complex for 15 nights in July 2021. It is only some steps to the beach and to see the sunset. This small complex is away - but not too far from the bigger hotels (20 to 30 minutes by foot) and better known sandy beaches. You can feel that the owners are interested that guests feel comfortable and operate with passion. Owners and staff are friendly and take care of the needs of their guests. We loved to stay in the apartment with ocean view and are sure to choose it again when back on Aruba.
This was my first trip to Aruba. It was a solo trip for my 51st birthday. This place was short of nothing. My stay at Sunset Studios was the icing on my cake! This place exceeded every single review that I read. Aside of the perfect location, I felt safe, it was relaxing and the grounds are so well kept with love and care. Can I say the staff was AMAZING! It felt like I was staying with family. They checked in on me to make sure I had everything I needed. JP even offered me lights for the porch to add to my ambiance! Needless to say, I'll be back and this will be the only place I will stay on my return. Thank You for Everything Sunset Studios!! Love You guys :)
Beste Eve, JP, Marit en medewerkers, Na een tijdje zoeken naar een accommodatie viel mijn oog op deze plek. Alle reviews zijn waar; nadat je hier bent geweest wil je niet meer weg. Na een lange dag van reizen werd je met open armen ontvangen, je voelde je direct welkom en thuis. Het persoonlijke, de plek, mooie tuin/zwembad en de schone leuke studio's maakt van deze vakantie een onvergetelijk avontuur. Door de travel ban van Amerika ben ik op Aruba terecht gekomen. Elk nadeel heeft dan weer zijn voordeel, door deze plek te hebben ontdekt. Helaas vliegt de tijd om als je het naar je zin hebt. Bedankt voor de gastvrijheid!! Ik kom graag nog een keertje terug bij mijn volgende reis om een paar dagen uit te rusten :) Tot ziens!
10/10 - Mooi gelegen Studios in het westen van Aruba! Super mooie locatie, recht aan het strand!! Vriendelijk en meedenkend personeel die Nederlands spreken. Mooie verblijven die goed worden bijgehouden. Er lopen ook mensen rond die de tuin netjes houden en alles tip top in orde maken. Heerlijke locatie, alleen een huurauto is wel aan te raden.
