This was our first trip to Aruba, our goal was to get away from the daily grind and rejuvenate as a couple. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios was the everything we needed. Eve and JP were amazing hosts with perfect suggestions for activities and restaurants. We were lucky enough to have dinner with them, such amazing people. Our stay was exactly what we were looking for. We made new friends from other places, we enjoyed beautiful sunsets and explored the island our way. We stayed in the Ocean 2 studio. It was perfect, with a kitchenette, comfy bed, cold A/C and the best little porch for chilling out. Every morning I got up, brewed a cup of coffee, went to the porch read the local paper delivered for free every morning while taking in the beautiful view. Then cross the street and go on a walk down the beach collecting the exoskeleton of sea urchins, conch shells, and other shells. We ended up with quite the collection. Unfortunately, we couldn't bring home the conch shells, but there are plenty of places to leave them for the next visitor to enjoy. You want to rent a car and rent a four-wheeler at least one day. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios recommended a very affordable place. We ended up exploring the island on our own going to all the snorkeling beaches. You can rent flippers, snorkels, or sea boots. My only regret was not being braver to go out further. The sunken ship across the way was amazing. You will want to load up your fridge on your way to your room because you won't want to leave the sovereignty of the Studios just to go shopping. There aren't any stores in walking distance, so get your favorites and stock up, so you don't waste any time. You will want to take a cooler wherever you go and you should have one in your room, if not you can get one in the office. There are a nice pool and hot tub, however, we never used them. We did all our swimming in the beautifully clear ocean. You can get a discount card to a lovely beach club down the road, and just north there is a few lovely beach with great snorkeling all the snorkeling cruises stop at. If you want a place that is perfect for a couples getaway, that is like staying at a friends home but with your own privacy. If you want a place that has the perfect view of the most beautiful sunsets and easy access to the tourist area without being in the middle of it. Then Aruba Sunset Beach Studios is for you. We will be coming back here for our next trip to our Aruba for sure.
