Our Guest Reviews

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

Elena warmly welcomed us upon arrival and was generous with information and offerings. Our studio, number 2, had what we determined as the best location, in the back but with an ocean view and full benefit of the breeze which blew thru the unit. We liked the benefit of the kitchen to cook our own food, the super food market was not too far away (being vegetarian the restaurants, minus Green Food Service in the Orange mall, restaurants offered overpriced poor vegetarian options). The studio was family like, with plenty of privacy and space when you wanted it. We ate most dinners in the common area, at a table with an ocean view, in front of our unit. The bed was very comfortable and the accommodations offered everything we needed. The staff assured we had everything we needed included clean beach and bath towels, sheets and kitchen towels. The location of the studios is the best, a beach right across the street and the best snorkeling just down the road, at Boca Catalina Beach (towards the California lighthouse - in the large home neighborhood, first left). I wish there was more education to tourist about being respectful of the reef (I observed much entitlement and disrespect of nature by the snorkeling tour groups). I would stay here again for sure, as most who we met have. It is definitely a gem in Aruba. The name Sunset Beach is most accurate when nature cooperates, as it did on our first nights stay.
My daughter and I recently returned from a stay at Sunset. We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the Garden View Studio. Many nice beaches were nearby. Jacky and Eline were always available and helped with making reservations for a sailboat cruise and jeep tour. We will definitely return in the future with the rest of our family! Thanks for the wonderful memories!
We stayed at Sunset Beach Studios for 6 nights. We had a great time. The bed is huge and comfortable! For your convenience you must rent a car, but it is close to everywhere. The Malmok Beach is great for snorkeling and kite-surfing! I highly recommend it!
This was my 5th time in Aruba and Sunset was my favorite place. It's perfect if you like tranquility, sleep with open windows, hear the wind and waves, it's good for the soul. I enjoyed my outdoor couch and the pool was nice. The personnel was great. When I go back to Aruba I will go back there unless if I move to the island!
We truly enjoyed our stay with you this year. As always the staff at Sunset is out of this world. Always helpful, accommodating and friendly. Hopefully we will be able to come back in 2016.
My girlfriend and I went to Aruba in May 2015 and stayed at Sunset Beach Studios for 10 days. We spent a great time in Aruba and the studio was great. The location of the studios is perfect: 5 minutes from the best place in Aruba to do snorkel (Boca Catalina Beach) and 10 minutes walking to Palm Beach (high rise area). The relation price / quality is outstanding, the place is really clean, the people who run it are really nice and ready to help in everything you need (they booked the car for us and there was a chofer waiting for us at the airport at our arrival!) and the room was really comfortable and well equipped. The jacuzzi was with hot water 24 hours a day, which allowed us to enjoy it till late night, every night. Around sunset time we crossed the street to the ocean and picked sea corals and stones from the beach. Highly recommended!!! we hope to come back soon...
My wife and I along with two other couples decided on a vacation in Aruba. After a bit of searching, we came across Sunset Beach Studios. Having been to Aruba before, my wife and I wanted to avoid the cramped, congested high rise hotel area but still wanted the convenience of beaches, restaurants and night life. Reading the reviews of Sunset Beach Studios, we were hooked – just what we were looking for. Perhaps about a mile from the high rise district. Upon our arrival, we knew our choice was correct. We had Ocean View 2 and how peaceful and relaxing to sit on the porch with morning coffee viewing the beach and ocean. Sometimes three different shades of blue/green at the same time. With a salt water pool, hot tub, and even barbecue facilities, how could we have gone wrong? Not hardly! Our room was always kept spotless and the grounds were neat and clean. Everyone on staff was very friendly and helpful and in fact, we arranged our car rental, excursions, and dining reservations through them. No problem there either. Having been in Aruba about 11 years ago and having stayed in the high rise area, we were surprised at the increased development over those years. Sunset Beach Studios is a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the more congested areas of the island. Hoping very much to return in the future, Sunset Beach Studios is, without question, where we will stay again and would highly recommend to anyone. Enjoy and relax!!
Chose Aruba Sunset Beach based on reviews and I was not disappointed. Laid back and relaxed atmosphere. I had decided that if the customer service I received before arriving in Aruba was great, once I got there it would be exceptional and I was right. We had Garden #6. Room and grounds were very clean, staff very nice and even the resident cats were friendly. AC worked very well. It was nice to be able to sit out and not feel the hassle that I have experienced when staying at larger resorts. This is a great location. Went with a group of friends and we are already planning our next vacation. Wi-Fi was great and my husband even had the pleasure of watching some basketball games on TV. Was able to walk across the street and walk in the ocean and there was a wrecked ship perfect for snorkeling. The layout of the grounds made it possible to gather with friends or to have some alone time at the table provided for your room.
Prior to our arrival at Sunset Beach we were already impressed with how helpful the staff were in providing us with information regarding their property and the area. They helped us with our car rental and gave us advice as to what to expect in Aruba. Upon our arrival they took care of all of our needs. Their friendly staff helped us with Excursions, Dinner Reservations, Area Information, Directions, and anything we needed on their property. It is a beautiful location in a quiet area and very comfortable. I would suggest Sunset Beach to anyone considering a stay in Aruba. We were so impressed that we have already booked time there next year.
Thank you for once again making our spring break visit so pleasant. You made us feel like returning family members with your warm welcome, and our week there was everything we had wished for. There is a charm and quaintness about Sunset Studios that is a refreshing change from the big high rise chain resorts; the comforts and conveniences, however, are just as good as larger hotels. We will look forward to a return visit next year, possibly with other family members and friends, too.
We just recently returned from yet another wonderful stay at Sunset Beach!! We cannot say enough about this great place. We are repeat guests every year and there is no other place on the island that we would want to stay. The owners, JP and Eve, along with all of the staff are just amazing people. So accomodating. Beautiful, well kept, clean and quiet place to stay. Have met many friends here over the years. We are already booked for next year!! Cannot wait!
What a gem!!! we absolutely loved staying here and cannot say enough about the service. First, the front desk team took care of everything for us--even the car rental. Second, when we got stuck and delayed due to bad weather, they were so understanding and helpful--again, they took care of everything for us. I loved staying right on the beach and having the ability to run, snorkel, or even kite right outside our front door. It is such a quaint home away from home. Everyone was very friendly. And third, they even found a car for my brother who was staying at another complex!!! He wasn't due to check in at the Sunset Studios for 5 more days and they found him a car and delivered it!!! That really goes above and beyond. I truly loved staying here and would come back for a month if I could.
Our Garden 7 studio was clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The price was satisfactory and the staff most helpful in all ways. We would recommend Sunset to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat without the hustle and bustle of resort areas. Other guests were super friendly and welcoming. Mostly repeat visitors, which speaks well of Sunset. The beaches of Aruba are the best and there is much to explore by rental car or tours. You can be as laid back or as busy as you want to be. Love Aruba!
Thank you JP, Eve and staff. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great location, close to the high rise district. Evenings quiet. Would recommend a car. Stayed in Garden 1. Loved the new mirror !! Will be returning next year. Already booked.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here recently. This is a great place to stay. It's near the beaches, grocery store, restaurants, and the big hotels, but it does not come with the big hotel feel.. Eline in particular was very helpful even securing an additional night due to a missed flight connection in Miami. Eline gave us the in's and out's of the studio and the immediate surroundings. Grab a cocktail and watch the sunset just across the street every evening. It can't be beat. Thanks again for everything.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Large Ocean Studio. You have a terrific location, operation and there was nothing we found to be wanting. You are on our favorite list. Until next year(hopefully) Jeff&Zelka Barrett
Our family reunion for Christmas 2014 and vacation was wonderful and a lot had to do with Sunset Beach Studios. We stayed at the Large Ocean Studio and rented the Ocean View Studio next door to accommodate our entire party. This worked out nicely as we had the full kitchen of the Large Ocean Studio to cook meals and come together. The staff here is super friendly and helpful in making your stay in Aruba memorable. JP and Eve decorated the place for the holidays which was great for kids who wanted presents under a tree. Location is just up the street from the Ritz Carlton and next to wind surfing beach that offers classes. We would definitely come back to these studios in a future trip.
Our stay at Sunset Beach Aruba was so delightful we haven't quit raving about our stay. The tropical feel, our magical porch, the pool, the hot tub and a wondrous shell beach only a very short walk across the street. The memories will surely keep us warm until spring. It is currently 10 degrees with a wind chill of -5 as I write. Would we go back and stay at Sunset Beach you ask? In a New York minute!!
This is our "Home Away from Home". We travel a lot, but this is where we go to truly relax, windsurf, beach walk, snorkel and enjoy the sunsets at the easy access beach. The pool and hot tub are extras that provide quiet privacy for the guests. We have stayed here at least 15 different times and feel that the staff and owners are like family. Our son and his family joined us for the the first time and plan to return. We have met so many friends, who also agreed that they plan to visit again. (Some make reservations before leaving.) We value the cleanliness of the rooms and the manicured grounds. The child car seat, crib and high chair provided, kept the "take with" travel items to a minimum. The staff are extremely familiar with excursions, restaurants, car rentals, taxis and water sports. If they don't happen to know an answer to a question, they find out and get back to us in a timely manner. We look forward to our return "home" next year!
We had a wonderful vacation to celebrate our 35th Anniversary. Sunset was a fantastic choice for a quite get-a-way. The location grants easy access to everything. We chose to rent a car for easy transportation but there’s a bus stop directly in front of the Studios. The rooms were very clean and many were newly remodeled. The kitchen had everything we needed. In the office there was a small library, there was also an album with a cornucopia of most of the Island sites and activities. Best of all they had snorkel equipment available for guests. Management and staff were very friendly and helpful, they even made our reservations for a great ATV (off road) tour of Aruba. Highly recommended! Thanks MUCH!
