We had our first visit to Aruba last week! Sunset Beach Studios was perfect. We rented the Large Ocean View Studio. Clean, comfortable, AC and a great view across the street. We didn't want to do an all-inclusive here because we heard that it was a safe and friendly island, which does mean you have to fend for yourself, but it was easy. Our room had a full kitchen with plenty of pots, plates, cups etc. Great grocery about a mile away. We took a couple dips in the pool out back/ very nice! You can snorkel across the street but you must wear water shoes because of coral and sea urchins hiding. A short drive north and you can choose other beaches. So nice to just pull in wherever you want and check it out. We drove south about 50 minutes to Baby Beach. That was nice and there is a restaurant there. We also went to the beach across from Divi resort. That was beautiful!! I would recommend the Around Aruba Tours UTV ride to see the other desert parts of the island. Sunset Beach Studios was the perfect place to relax and chill away from all the hotels, but just a short drive if you wanted that scene.
