Our Guest Reviews

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

We are two sisters in law who joined their yoga teacher and fellow yogis on a trip to Aruba and a stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. What a lovely resort. It is well located, across from the ocean, giving you a front row seat to spectacular sunsets! The Studios are about a mile from the high-rise hotel area with shops and restaurants and beautiful Arashi Beach. Rooms are well appointed with a well-stocked kitchenette. The grounds have beautiful plantings, a nice clean pool and hot tub and a palapa with a big table where you can enjoy breakfast, happy hour and the company of fellow travelers while enjoying the breeze. The staff is outstanding! From Laura and Jasmine who greeted us on our arrival, to the housekeeping staff, Eve and JP have assembled a great group of friendly, knowledgeable and caring people. We had a great trip to Aruba, practiced some yoga, saw some beautiful sights, swam at some beautiful beaches, ate some delicious food, enjoyed the company of old friends and new and had lots of laughs. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios was a great home base for our trip.
Another splendid week in Aruba and in particular at the Sunset Beach Studios. We love family atmosphere, friendly smiles all time and cosy studios. This makes our stay even more likely to happen again than proximity of the sea and proximity of entertainment - if you wish quiet, busy, sporty, drinks, no drinks, swim, cycle, run, hike - everything is sooo close!
As usual another great stay! We always love going to our Aruba home at Sunset Studios. We feel so at ease and comfortable there, and of course the owners Eve & JP and their staff are top rated and help in any way possible. It was nice to see the High Winds Contest with all the beautiful kites and sails going by in front of the studios and of course the Best Sunsets!! Can't wait to come back next year!
Aruba Sunset Beach Studios is truly my home away from home! My family, friends and I have been staying there consistently since 2000. The owners, JP and Eve, are like family and they (along with their staff) are very attentive to making sure the experience is top notch! If you are looking for clean, quiet, friendly and most importantly...relaxing accommodations while on the island, then this is your place!
Well, what can we say after staying at Sunset Beach Studios for the 14th time. JP, Eve and the whole Sunset team are a 10 out of 10. For 14 years we have enjoyed a European style studio across from the ocean with 2 grills, a pool, a hot tub and a covered happy hour area. Beautiful Arashi beach is a short distance away. Sunset Beach Studios is perfect for watching wind-, kite surfing and foiling. Oh, also perfect sunsets (PS look for the green glow as the sun sets below the horizon, thanks JP). As far as information about the island, JP and Eve will help from car rentals, restaurants and even renewing your wedding vows. We could go on and on but maybe going there would be the best bet!
Eve and JP, Thank you both for helping to make our celebration of my 70th 'Trip around the Sun' a huge pleasure! You both are wonderful hosts and 'folks' that I would want to call my friends. It was a great week in Aruba. Thank you for the birthday surprise! That was a special touch of hospitality.
Our first trip to Aruba, and Aruba Sunset Beach Studios was recommended by my cousin, who has stayed there several time. Very nice accommodations, we had Ocean View that was just spectacular for the sunsets! Everything you needed was provided with the studio and reasonably priced. It was very clean, safe and the owners and staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. The cleaning staff also did a great job and were cheerful. You are literally within minutes of outstanding beaches! Highly recommended and we hope to return in the future! Thank you for making it a most memorable vacation!
We’ve been to Aruba 7 times and this trip was for our wedding, we’ve seen Aruba Sunset Beach Studios and decided to book here since we would be running to see guests throughout the island. We would 100% stay here again while vacationing here in the future. Check in was simple and easy, the Large Garden Studio 1 was the perfect size and spacious for all our luggage. The pool, grills in the common area, the ocean view, everything was great. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and welcoming. My now husband got ready there for our wedding with a few other men. They even decorated the room the day we got married ❤️
My wife and I recently booked several days at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios prior to our extended stay at one of the premiere resorts on the island. Our reaction to this exquisite boutique hotel was as unexpected as our shared reluctance to leave for the reservation at the larger resort. Unlike the familiar and predictable experience in the all-inclusive resort sphere this marvelously understated spate of studios was a sublimely tranquil and rather unique surprise amid an otherwise banal anonymity of tourists and overtly commercial offerings. In the mornings the wind whispers through the palm fronds which canopy the hotel, and directly across the street the breathtaking turquoise waters await. A ten minute walk from the studios finds several ideal swimming and snorkeling coves of unquestionable beauty. Both the hotel itself and the sheer seductive force of the island take hold of you, pulling you into a solitude of meditation and wonder. Laura proved to be a delightful and generous host, and I cannot overstate my recommendation to friends and family to sample such a quaint alternative to the big resort fare amid something which harkens back to another time, a kind of old-world eloquence of simple pleasures and the resonating memories imprinted. I cannot wait to return in the winter months for yet another welcome departure from the blunt imposition of the big city...thank you so much Laura!
We just returned from a wonderful visit to Aruba - and the accommodations at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios made it perfect. Beautiful tranquil setting, clean, small and personal. Kitchenette helpful to make some meals - great grill and large table area when visiting with a group of couples! Best sunset location. Snorkeling access great right across the street. Location is perfect to lots of restaurants, shopping, beaches - walking within 1.5 miles. A car is handy to see other sights but the island is small and easy to get around. Really very friendly island to visit. The staff at Sunset Studios helped with dinner reservations - they have everything you need to rent, chairs, snorkeling equipment, etc. Thank you Aruba Sunset Beach Studios.
My husband and I just got home from our third time staying at Sunset Studios! It is the perfect place to relax! Everyone is so friendly and watching the sunsets from our studio is beyond perfect! Fabulous place to stay if you want to relax and heal your soul!!! Elsa and Charlie
Where does one begin when the hospitality at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios has been nothing short of "Service Excellence." Booking our reservation was easy and very prompt! Eve also looked after booking our car rental! JP, Eve, and the entire staff are the most welcoming crew we have ever met! Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a very warm welcome , great conversation, and a cold beer! We arrived a little late, but JP advised us where to go for a great dinner, just minutes away! (Delicious) Our room was spotless and had everything we needed! Waking up every morning in Ocean 2 to the sunshine, overlooking the ocean was magical! The sunsets are second to none! The property, "A Little Piece Of Heaven", is absolutely beautiful. The gardens are stunning, lovely pool and jacuzzi! A huge shout out to JP, Mack, and Nik for a couple of private lessons (not sure this is available all the time) but you made my wife feel at ease! You guys went above and beyond! I came a windsurfer and left a wing-foiler! Thank you for a wonderful stay. You guys are the best. See you next year ! ❤️❤️❤️ Sandra and Tom
We had the pleasure of being guests at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. We are delighted with both Aruba itself and the beautiful place run by delightful hosts. There was everything a family of four needed to spend a pleasant time in the apartments and the entire complex, The kids enjoyed the swimming pool all day long. The rooms are very clean, the ladies who work there, were very nice and helpful. You can see that everyone puts a lot of heart to make this place so friendly, Every detail is refined❤️❤️❤️We will definitely be back to Aruba and definitely to Sunset Beach Studios. Best Regards, Marta and Wojtek
We just returned from 3rd stay at the studios. I couldn’t see staying anywhere else on the island. The staff are amazing and set the tone for the studios and the stay. The word that best describes Sunset Studios is home.
Warm, Welcoming Wonderful Stay! My husband and I just returned from our second stay at the Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. JP and Eve and the Sunset Team welcomed us with their warm, friendly and always helpful presence. We love staying here and can't wait to go back. The view is lovely with gorgeous sunsets right across the street at the beach. We really enjoy sitting on the deck and having our morning coffee and breakfast looking at the ocean. The room, as always, is well cared for and kept clean. It's more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel. Having a small kitchen and refrigerator makes our trip easier and more enjoyable. We can pack lunches and spend the day at the beach! We enjoy meeting the other guests and sharing our experiences in Aruba. We learn a lot by hearing about their adventures. Whenever there is a snag in our travel, JP and Eve are happy to help us out. We had a flight cancelled this trip and they were standing by to assist us if we needed to stay longer. They are super accommodating and will go out of their way to meet your needs. The studios are super close to some of our favorite beaches. In 5 - 10 minutes you can be at at least three beautiful locations for snorkeling and swimming. Arashi Beach is one of our favorites. You don't even need to snorkel to see fish in the water. Sunset has beach chairs and snorkel equipment for rent or you can get chairs and umbrellas at the beach. It's a very warm, friendly and beautiful place to stay. My only hesitation in giving a five star review is that it will get so popular we won't be able to get a spot next year!
This was our first visit to Aruba. We found out about Aruba Sunset Beach Studios from my brother and boy what a find. We could not have asked for a better place to stay! The room was nice and clean with a great view of the ocean from our patio. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. They made us feel at home. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning next year!
Just got back from our 3rd stay and it couldn’t have been more perfect. We can’t wait to come back! Thank you guys for making it a great vacation for our family!
A Gem of a Place! Something has to be really special to keep us coming back year after year. JP, Eve, and the staff have managed to make Aruba Sunset Beach Studios a magical place. They strive to make sure each guests needs are met, and more than likely surpassed. The magical atmosphere under the big poolside palapa brings folks together from all walks of life sharing experiences. With Aruba growing rapidly, we always know we have our special little gem to enjoy! Booking is a breeze, questions are promptly answered. All the rooms are adequately furnished and comfortable. The pool and hot tub are a gathering spot for guest to enjoy. The staff is available to answer your questions, help book excursions, or make dining suggestions. Since 2006 we have continued to return to enjoy Aruba and the warm atmosphere of Aruba Sunset Beach Studios.
Small Resort within walking distance of restaurants and beach The staff at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios are very helpful, they frequently checked in to make sure everything was okay and offered to make any reservations for restaurants and excursions around the island. Every email I sent got a response almost immediately prior to our trip. The pool was small but very clean and the hot tub was great. The other guests were friendly and many were repeat customers. The ocean was directly across the road, so I could walk everyday along the ocean.
This was our first time in Aruba and we were mainly researching the hotels and resorts for rooms with ocean view, and Aruba Sunset Studios was an accidental find for us. But like so many other guests of Aruba Sunset, we expect to be repeat guests. The website information as well as the pictures of the studios are accurate and per expectations. The process of reservation was very professional, with prompt communications from either Eve, Marit or Ivy from the Sunset team. We had lots of questions for the team before we got to Aruba: location, getting around, walkability, car rental and so on and we received patient and detailed messages in response. We were in Aruba during peak Christmas season and rental cars were hard to get, but the Sunset Team coordinated and helped us get a car. While we were there, Marit, Ivy and Eve provided lots of tips and support - restaurants, places of interest, how to get there, making calls sometimes on our behalf, or providing a list of grocery stores that would be open during Christmas and their hours. We followed their guidance and didn’t go wrong, was a very enjoyable trip. JP was around a lot, chatted with us and provided some local color too. Very warm, friendly and professional team (including the housekeeping staff) - the quick personal attention is a huge contrast to the large resorts and hotels. We stayed in Ocean 2, was great to wake up to the ocean every morning and watch the glorious sunset every evening. The patio facing the sea was a very nice place to relax, even during the occasional rain. Location - it is about one mile to go from the Sunset Studios to Marriott Stellaris hotel, the beginning of the Palm Beach stretch (high-rise hotels). We often walked to the Palm Beach area (going left from Sunset Studios), about half of which would be on a lit, paved sidewalk, so very doable. That sidewalk also runs up to the Boca Catalina beach on the other side (going to the right from the Sunset Studios). The full pathway is just over a mile end to end each way, great place to get exercise with a full view of the ocean. All the beaches are accessible from Sunset Studios - Malmok Beach is right across and others are very short drives - Arashi and Boca Catalina to the north; Palm Beach and Eagle Beach to the south. Further south, and a longer drive gets you to Baby Beach. The California Lighthouse, which is close-by, is a must. Snorkel and dive zones (the Antilla shipwreck) are nearby as well (though we did neither). There are other places to discover during a relaxed vacation and the Sunset Team was very helpful in that regard. Overall, we had a wonderful time being based out of Aruba Sunset.
