Our Guest Reviews

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

Bon tarde Eve, JP, and Irene! I want to thank you for your unbelievable hospitality during my recent stay. Sunset Studios is a wonderful place to stay when you want to relax and enjoy a peaceful / quiet vacation out of the major hotel areas. Everyone went over & above and exceeded my expectations...even when I was leaving to wave to me goodbye! I enjoyed being in the Large Ocean View Studio - a huge porch overlooking the beautiful ocean with amazing sunsets, and all the amenities of home. Thank you with all my heart for everything.
This review is based on many years of returning to Aruba Sunset Studios in Malmok. This family run establishment is popular on many fronts! The welcoming owners are always available and interested in every guest. The studios are clean and newly renovated. They are well located within walking distance to the best snorkeling and diving on the island. Desalinated fresh water from the tap is a bonus on this island also. This Dutch island has large clean supermarkets. I returned with my daughter this year and she also loved the studio as it was steps from the pool and always quiet. Thank you Eve and JP for giving us a wonderful experience every time!
Best view on the island! We saw photos of the view from Sunset Beach Studio’s Ocean rooms online, but photos do not do justice to the extraordinary sunsets we enjoyed every night! An exploration of the entire island confirmed that this was the best place in Aruba for us. We are not resort people, and there are few affordable places that have a view of the ocean. We spent all our waking hours outside—mostly on the front porch—but also enjoyed the pool and hot tub in the evening, snorkeling from the beach right in front, and watching the kite boarders just south of us. The entire staff is easy-going, attentive, and extremely kind and helpful. Eve, JP & Irene all guided us to the best experiences and even arranged some for us at no extra cost, saving us time to enjoy our vacation and expensive international long distance charges. Irene helped us book a pick-up truck at the last minute after I had exhausted every search engine possible to no avail. The studio was well-equipped with considerate attention to detail: adequate kitchen supplies, shopping bags, beach chairs and towels, a safe, and plenty of snorkelling gear available to rent. We had the best time imaginable on our first trip to Aruba and hope to return to Sunset Beach Studios soon.
Eve & JP thank you for the great time! Ocean view studios was perfect ! The place was so clean and quiet. The service team was great. We really spent a wonderful time in your facilities. See you soon!
The Aruba Sunset Beach Studios team did an amazing job of making my wife and I's honeymoon something we will never forget. I would highly suggest booking with them first and then having them help you book the rest of your trip. They did a really good job of providing good suggestions and helping us get the most for our money. We did just about everything that you can imagine on the island and they did a really good job of helping us book trips and know what to expect. The location of the studios were absolutely perfect for us. The beach right out front is not a sand beach but it was still really fun for walks and the best for shell searching. There are some of the best snorkeling beaches within walking distance (we did a bunch) and they are close enough to the high rises to just go for dinner and then come back for some relaxation. The room was very clean and very comfy. Also expect to meet a lot of other wonderful guest from the Netherlands. We had a great time meeting a couple of other guests and learning about Europe.
I can really recommend this place, which is a true pearl. It has the best (sunset) view of the Island (way better than the Ritz). This place has several advantages: 1. It is quiet, but cosy at the same time. 2. It is clean, with everyday your apartment being cleaned. 3. The people working are wonderful and want you to have a great time. 4. The swimming pool is great. 5. It is nice to go here alone, as there is a communal space where you can meet the other people. 6. It is easy to reach and very central with the best beaches on walking distance. 7. It has a shipwreck in front of you where you can snorkel and see a lot of great fish. Outstanding place!
We had a wonderful week! The studio has the perfect location, close to everything we needed, but far enough from the crowds; so it nicely quiet. Also close to the best beaches, and great snorkeling. The studios are super clean and have everything you need. And the garden, pool, and “happy hour” cabana are beautiful and very comfortable. We will certainly come back!
Wat een mooie en relaxte plek om te verblijven. De allermooiste rustige stranden van Aruba liggen op loopafstand! Een wrak schuin tegenover de Studio's is de beste plek om te snorkelen op het hele eiland, beter nog dan natural pool! Grote en kleine vissen, wel 15 soorten telden wij er. Je ziet duizenden vissen rond het wrak. Het zwembad met daarnaast een tropische overkapping maken het tot een verblijf waar je eigenlijk niet eens weg hoeft. Je kunt er lekker lezen en genieten van de mooiste hagedissen die de Caribische droom kleuren met hun prachtige fel blauwe en groene huid. Kortom beter dan een hotel! Uitzicht op zee, palmbomen en een zwembad! Ik zeg: JOEHOE!!!!
We truly enjoyed our stay in your amazing place. The combination of our PADI dive certification and vowel renewal made for a wonderful experience on One Happy Island! Our stay with you made the nights great and truly anyone looking for something different from the dreadful high rise area of Aruba should not think twice about Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. Large Ocean 1 was just the romantic place we needed and relaxing on the porch at night finished each one of our wonderful days in a special way. Thanks again for the great experience and if we do Aruba again we know who to call.
Wij hebben het geweldig naar onze zin gehad. Nogmaals super bedankt dat wij ons zo welkom hebben gevoeld als bij jullie! Echt…jullie hebben een onuitwisbare indruk bij mij achter gelaten. Nooit eerder heb ik mij zo thuis gevoeld als bij jullie. Bedankt nogmaals voor alle tips en goede adviezen! Snorkelen is echt geweldig! Zeg ik…ik die zoveel angsten heeft overwonnen op Aruba. Ook dankzij jullie! Lieve groeten uit het warme Nederland! Bas en Michelle XX
We had an amazing time in Aruba! Staying at Sunset Beach Studios enhanced our experience greatly through its natural atmosphere and welcoming staff. We had the amenities of a large resort but with the surroundings of Mother Nature. Our family stayed in the Large Oceanview room and the Ocean 2 room. We had plenty of room to cook, relax, spend time together, etc. The rooms were very clean, had exactly what we needed, and were decorated in good taste. The pool, hot tub, and large community hut were wonderful places to relax, unwind, and talk to people from all over the world. The beautiful landscaping gave it a warm, tropical feel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They even called and made reservations for us at restaurants and De Palm Island. We will definitely stay there again...hopefully sooner than later.,
My wife found this piece of heaven on earth and we love it. We stayed here for a week and surely will come back when we get a chance. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios is a family owned business with very friendly people. Its best to rent a car which we did. Great location for a couple, Good price and everything you need.
We love Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. It is like coming home, when we arrive JP and Eve are there to welcome us. The staff there are like part of the family and they treat us as such. We have been staying here for the last 10 years or so for three times a year, which equal out to about 4 months a year.. I have a timeshare but would much rather stay at Sunset Beach Studios. It is truly our home away from home.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. The rooms are immaculate, the staff is warm and responsive, amenities are perfect (kitchenette, TV, internet, pool, cabana, grills), and the vibe is cozy/laid back/homey. This was my first time staying here and it was the best place I've stayed on the island. Location is great - snorkeling and shell seeking "adventures" at the beach across the street, pool and community seating areas for visiting. Hotels are nearby if you want nightlife. Child friendly and great for extended family stays where each can have the privacy of a room. Do yourself a great favor and stay here...but only send cool people to it. This place is too good to suffer impolite visitors
De ocean view studio is echt fantastisch. Zonsondergang is prachtig vanuit je eigen porch te bewonderen. Wij zullen zeker terugkomen!
It is difficult for me to imagine staying anywhere on the island other than Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. Eve, JP, Jackie, and rest of the staff could not be nicer or more welcoming, it is close to everything (beaches, lighthouse, golf course, restaurants, kite schools, grocery store) but far enough away from the noise of the high rise nightlife. The grounds are super comfy and cozy. Same goes for the rooms. The kitties often come by for a pet and my little lizard friends great me when out by the BBQ. I could live the rest of my days in Garden 2. Thank you eve and JP for such a wonderful stay. I will be back.................often. Cheers, Tom
We have been to Aruba 50+ times. Our last few trips have been to another small apartment style place, but we made the switch to Sunset after visiting here in November 2017 and liking it. Check in on May 2 was easy and the owner Eve, very gracious and kind. Our unit was clean and appointed just fine...coffee maker, a few small appliances, a decent sized refrigerator an a microwave. The bed is king sized and daily comfortable. The property is pretty and has lush landscaping/plants. The housekeeping staff are lovely, work hard, and aim to please. The pool although sort of small is perfect for most everyone's needs. the water is sparkling clear. The location is about 1/4 mile north of the windsurfing headquarters and I suspect that most of the guests here are partakers of that sport. The only downside.............ummm cannot think of one. Disclosure, I was a pain in the rear as I had to change reservations for an upcoming stay in October and the office staff were kind and if they were annoyed at our changes, they did not let on....they were gracious!
We really enjoyed our home away from home. Hopefully we will be able to come back next year. All the best to the Sunset family.
Beste Eef, JP en Sunset Team, We hebben weer een heerlijke vakantie gehad in jullie appartementencomplex. Het uitzicht op zee, de zonsondergang ... fantastisch! We genieten ook ieder jaar (nu het 15e jaar) van de prachtige tuin met palmen, exotische planten en vogels. Bedankt voor het fijne verblijf op Aruba!
Absolutely great place to stay. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. As were outside grounds and lounge chairs. The beach is less than 100 meters from your room. There is a wreck to snorkel around less than 300 meters from your room. It’s a ten minute walk to a couple of Aruba's popular snorkeling areas. The view of the sunset is fantastic. A bus comes by every 20 minutes. It’s US $2.60 each to the high rise area, about a ten minute ride. Our host were absolutely fantastic. Extremely nice people. Very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. Thank you Eve & JP, Irene & Jackie, You helped make our stay in Aruba a very pleasant vacation. We will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend that you stay here too!!!
