We had a wonderful stay at Sunset Studios over Christmas Break. My husband & I stayed in Ocean 2, and our teenage kids stayed in Garden 7 & 8, right near the pool. We have been to Aruba before, and have stayed at the Hyatt and the Holiday Inn. Sunset Studios was a much better value given our large family (6). We come to Aruba for the kiteboarding and windsurfing, and Sunsets location is just minutes from the fisherman's huts where we rent equipment from Aruba Active Vacations. Great snorkeling right across from our deck, beautiful Arashi Beach just a quick car or bike ride to the north, and the Ritz Carlton and other high rise hotels another quick ride or walk to the south. It is so nice to park your car right in front of your room - no elevators or weaving through the corridors of a large hotel. Cozy garden and pool area was very peaceful and relaxing. We watched the sunset every evening from our covered porch. The kids loved biking to the Pelican Peer for great wings & burgers. Hubby & I enjoyed happy hour at Moomba Bar, near the Holiday Inn. The entire staff was friendly and very accommodating. JP the owner was always available to answer any questions, and he provided lots of good information on activities and restaurants (better than a concierge). Sunrise Studios feels like home - we will be back.
