We did a lot of research before choosing Sunset Beach and it paid off. Here's what's great about it. It's clean. They clean and mop every day. I have stayed in fine hotels that don't pay this much attention to cleanliness. It is in a perfect location. You can walk a couple dozen yards and be in one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Simply Stunning. The staff is friendly and answered all of our many questions...always with a smile. The amenities are nice, too. The pool, the flowers, just the "look" of the place is nice, warm and welcoming. There's something else, too; the personal touch. Their recommendations for tours, restaurants and entertainment are spot on. We returned from each thinking, "this is just what we were looking for." During our stay, we had opportunities to visit some of the other places on the island. Here's what Sunset does not have: crowds. The big hotels are busy, crowded and we noticed many signs warning guests about vendors on the beach. When we returned to Sunset Beach, we felt as if we were returning home. I hope we can return to Aruba, and if so, I know where we will want to stay. One hint: Be sure to take the tour with Alfred, and use Aquawindies for diving.
