Our Guest Reviews

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

En weer een heerlijke tijd gehad bij JP en Eef. Nu in de grote oceanview. Heerlijk uitgerust, veel gelezen. Lekker gegeten bij Gasparito (een aanrader!), Bingo en Moomba. Ongeveer de 9e keer hier en komen volgend jaar zeker weer terug. Masha Danki!
If you looking for all inclusive, room service and closeness to party zones this hotel is definitely not for you. But if you want peace and quiet, nice view over the sunsets from your own "terass" with an optional glass of wine (your own bought), closeness to the ocean, nice rooms and a small but very useful cooking place. Really nice and helpful personal, nice outdoor area this is really a place for you. One thing is that you may need a rental car for your own convenience to get to supermarkets and restaurants etc. But there are local buses just outside as well. Me and my wife really enjoyed the stay.
Just returned from 10 days at Sunset Beach Studios and look froward to returning! We had an ocean view suite and loved waking up and looking out over the ocean. The resort is welcoming and relaxed, very quiet and peaceful. We enjoy dinner out and casino at the high rises where it is busy but enjoy the peace of our own studio apartment. The gardens are beautiful and it is well kept and clean. The pool and hot-tub are nice after a hot day out exploring beaches as well. A nice touch is the laundry service, very reasonable, done that day folded and returned to your room. We were able to pack a bit more lightly. Plus you can swap out for clean beach towels/bath towels when you need to - you don't have to leave your room key like at the all-inclusives. They trust you not to steal them. :)
My wife and I recently spent 3 weeks in Aruba. One week was spent at the Marriott Surf Club and two weeks at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. Based on the fact we stayed at both places, we can honestly say our preferred home base for our stay in Aruba was the tranquility and relaxed friendly atmosphere at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. It was a real pleasure to interact with the owners and the office staff from the initial booking with answers to all my questions to the “Goodbye Hug” at the end of our trip. Unfortunately, the owners JP and Eve were off on their own vacation the day after we met them so we didn’t have the opportunity to interact with them during our stay. After meeting Jacky and Suzanne the office staff, we quickly realized JP and Eve left Sunset Studios in very capable hands. It didn’t matter what our request or question was, from renting a car, to comments on restaurants or just a friendly chat, Jacky and Suzanne were a real pleasure to talk to. Everyone we ran into from the other guests (many of them are return customers to Sunset Studios), to the office staff or the cleaning staff were very accommodating and friendly. The individual units are clean and comfortable, and the view of the ocean across the street was amazing! My wife and I would not hesitate for a second in recommending a stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios to anyone looking for a nice, clean relaxed place to stay while in Aruba. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to all of the staff for making our stay a most memorable one. Masha danki, Aruba ta Bunita.
Paradise Just spectacular! Go no further and check this incredible place out. Beauty of Aruba is surpassed by this wonderful staff and lovely place to stay. Everything one could ask for is here. Views, clean spacious rooms, perfect location and the best staff around. Kathleen and Jerry
We had a wonderful stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. The view from our ocean view studio was amazing! The studio had all that we needed, including a large fridge and kitchenette. It's located in a quiet area, directly opposite to the sea, and a short drive to the high rise hotels, supermarkets and Oranjestad. We live loved also the beautiful garden with pool and Jacuzzi. Highly recommended. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay here again!
Everything was perfect & even better then I had imagined! And biggest additional plus to this beautiful hotel are the people who work or own this place. They are very professional, pleasant & helpful with any small issues needed to resolved. There were no big issues - they are just perfect! I will recommend this hotel to my friends, family & co-workers in a heartbeat!
My time in SUNSET BEACH STUDIOS was great. It is a very nice place with everything necessary for a great vacation. Thanks again for caring !
Wat een warm welkom (letterlijk en figuurlijk), het begint met een persoonlijk welkomsbordje op je deur. In onze studio was alles wat we nodig hadden. Op het complex hangt een huiselijke sfeer, alles is aanwezig om je verblijf comfortabel te maken. Ook de aandacht van al het personeel is TOP. Het enige wat je echt nodig hebt is een auto om naar het strand te kunnen gaan, alhoewel er een bushalte voor de deur is. Maar een auto is sowieso handig op Aruba. JP, Eef, Jackie bedankt voor een supergezellig verblijf. Nicole en Juliette
This was our 3rd stay @ Aruba Sunset Beach Studios & it was just as great as our previous stays. JP & Eve are quite accommodating w/ all of our vacation needs. The cleanliness & location of this charming property are superb. If small & friendly accommodations are @ the top of your list, this is the place. We look forward to returning.
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.
We stayed for four nights in the large ocean view room in lovely Aruba. It is the kind of hotel we prefer -- quiet and small, as opposed to the big high rises. Eve went out of our way to make sure we were comfortable. One morning our rental car wouldn't start. We had left the lights on all night. She quickly and cheerfully brought her car around and gave us a jump start and we were on our way for the day. The room was lovely, with a full kitchen and living area, a wonderful porch and a very comfortable bed. We had a couple of nice happy hours around the pool and under the palapa. The grocery store, shops and numerous restaurants are close by but you do need a rent car. No question, I will book the Aruba Sunset Beach Studios again if I'm lucky enough to get back to Aruba.
Wonderful location ... close enough to high-rise area but far enough for peace and tranquility. Very well equipped, full kitchen, clean, great in-house laundry service and very friendly/helpful staff. Will definitely make it our home base in Aruba! Nice outdoor green areas. We stayed in the largest ocean front studio and the sunsets were spectacular right from our terrace. Nice feature with this studio is that it connects with two smaller studios ... perfect for a group/family. No closet but big enough armoir to hang clothes for two with shelves & plenty of drawers. Good snorkeling, palapas, beach just down the street. Great area for walks, jogs, bike riding parallel to ocean/beach. Wonderful stay!
We stayed a week at Sunset Beach Studios in August 2016. The location was perfection with all the amenities necessary. We did use the kitchen to make breakfast and save some $. The views are spectacular along with the service! Suzie was an amazing help! It's still shocking that all the sand was always cleaned out each day! Looking forward to a return trip.
We are on our way home after a delightful first visit to Aruba. Sunset Studios and the staff, Suzie in particular, were instrumental in helping us shape our visit. We were there as non-traditional honeymooners (52 and 50 with 5 kids between us!) We did a good bit of research in choosing our accommodations. We usually do our best to avoid the beaten tourist path, and Sunset Beach Studios looked promising. The location is terrific, for all the reasons others have also mentioned, and the place is beautiful, comfortable, and extraordinarily well-kept. I love the plants, flowers, and shells. The kitchen was fully equipped. When we arrived, they surprised us by having our room (Large Ocean View) outfitted with Dutch honeymoon decorations and a bottle of champagne!!! We were unfortunately a bit late arriving because we were famished after beginning our travel at 2:45 am that day. We didn't realize we would be keeping JP waiting. So sorry, JP! He was an unbelievably good sport and host. After planning flights and where to stay, life got a little crazy, and we didn't get to plan much more. No matter, Suzie patiently and thoroughly asked questions, offered resources, and helped us plan and carry out exactly what we wanted - a view of the island, people, and food without all the pricy, hyped tourist trappings. We are now considering how to save do a family holiday for all 7 of us!!
We enjoyed our little 'Girl Time' vacation so much. Eve & JP were always so helpful. Take the time to eat at Bingo: we had 2 great meals there. Thank you for having such a well equipped kitchen. We were able to do our morning breakfast and lunches with no issues. Proximity to beaches was great. Our favorite was Arashi Beach, just down the road, free parking, chairs to rent $7 and beautiful clear water. Hope to come back someday!!
We found this place online. Great place to avoid the tourist traps. Met some amazing people with similar interest. Great hosts JP and Eef, even watched him win a kite race. Bbq-ing in the moonlight. there is a constant breeze from the back of the rooms which made sleeping without airco possible. We shall surely be back.
We went to Aruba for the Aruba Hi Winds Race. We were lucky enough to find Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. The studio was very nice and really had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. We like to make our own breakfast and lunch, then go out for a nice dinner. The owners and all the staff were very pleasant, which just added to the overall experience. The garden and pool area were lovely and well maintained. Location turned out to be ideal, we could walk across the street and watch the races. And great snorkeling spots were minutes away. Would definitely recommend Sunset to anyone looking for an alternative to the high rise hotels!
This is the best choice possible for those wanting to avoid the high rise area. Amazing location, small, quiet, great people. Still close to everything, Sunset across the street each night. Pool and jacuzi, grill, spacious studio rooms. JP and Eve are so nice and helpful. Susie is also wonderful. We enjoyed Boca Catalina beach. The Local Store and Wacky Wahoo for food. Shopped at Super Food daily for making our own meals. Met wonderful travelers staying here. It was a great choice and we recommend it highly to anyone who is a more independent traveler seeking to avoid the masses at the big chain resorts. Had no problems all vacation, Anywhere. Sunset studios is the place to stay!
Had a fabulous fortnight's holiday in June 2016. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios ticked all our boxes. We like to self cater and hire a car. Setting nice and quiet away from the high rise hotels though you can get a taxi no problem. We love to snorkel and Malmok beach is excellent and just up the road. We managed to see turtles there. The studio had basic cooking facilities but combined with the two BBQs provided in the garden/pool area, no problems at all. Even treated my wife to the odd meal out!!! Air con in the studio also came in useful. JP, Eve and Suzie very hospitable. Couldn't do enough to make our stay an enjoyable one. Oh, if you love snorkeling visit Aruba Bob website - fantastic trip.
