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 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.
The location is wonderful, so quiet, you can enjoy every day the sunset from your balcony! The owners are very kind and always ready for help, answer your questions or organize something. I suggest to rent a car. With their contact is very efficient and fast for the pickup and return at the airport. We really loved the location.
The location is terrific: far enough away that you're not bumping into hordes of sun burnt tourists, but right next to the water and a front seat for the sunsets. The room was spacious and clean (how did they get all the sand out? must be magic.) We are scuba divers and avid snorkelers, and Eve gave us great tips on which beaches we should visit. All in all, a fantastic holiday.
We just returned from another relaxing time at Sunset. This trip we had several family members, including our 88 year old mother with us and we all had a great time. The staff are all very helpful, warm and caring. Our studios were very well equipped, homey and beautiful. We enjoyed watching the sunset from our patio. Can't wait to return for our month long stay next November.
Ik kom hier al vele jaren met veel plezier. Je voelt je snel thuis. De studios inclusief keuken zijn niet zo groot maar je leeft hier buiten. Voorzien van zwembad barbecue en hot tub. Eind van de dag heerlijk onder de veranda waar de wind doorgaat. Alles is schoon, prima schoonmaak (naar behoefte, kan dagelijks) en uitstekende hulp voor je wensen tijdens je verblijf. Ligging is rustig aan de oceaan, op korte afstand van restaurants, high rise hotels en de golfbaan. Een auto is aan te bevelen. Als je wil maak je vlot contact met overige vakantiegangers. Al met al een super plekje op Aruba!
This was our second to Sunset Beach Studios, and will likely not be our last. Eve and JP, the owners, are friendly and go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. The two maids work harder than any maids I have seen. I was talking yesterday with someone who recently went to Aruba and stayed in one of the big high-rises. She said it was a "party scene" and always crazy. She also said the beach was crowded and full of bugs. Sunset Beach is a great alternative. Yes, if the party scene appeals to you, it is close by. However, if you want a quiet, restful vacation, Sunset Beach Studios is perfect. As a bonus, you are near secluded, private beaches where the locals (and some tourists) go. Sunset Beach is the best of both worlds and gives you exactly what you are looking for, no matter what that is.
Genuinely not a fib.... Selling the spare car to hopefully get back to this piece of paradise in November. Our second visit to this establishment, having visited Aruba many times and can safely say this is our most favourite place. Eve, JP and their team are welcoming, warm and so helpful. They truly want for their guests to have the very best time possible. We stay in the Large Garden 1 Studio. Loads of room, everything you could need, effective airco, superbly clean and fantastic views of the ocean from the side veranda. The beach out front is littered with shells and if you pack good sea footwear take a walk out with your snorkel and mask. The most amazing selection of wonderful Caribbean fish and if brave enough the ship wreck there is home to even more delights. This area is lovely and quiet and we always feel totally safe with a night watchman as an added reassurance. Hire a little car and you have easy access to restaurants, bars, beaches, recreation. The choice is near unlimited whilst not encroaching on this area at all. Would love to tell you about the secret snorkeling spots we found but I'm afraid I'd have to kill you !!! Eve and JP will share though so just tell them what you're looking for and they will guide and advise. Really can't wait to go again, the most relaxing and enjoyable 2 weeks. Mmmmm wonder if we could wangle 3 weeks from the employers next time?
The second time we visited Sunset Beach Studios and what a nice place it is. If you look for a more intimate atmosphere compared to the high rise hotels, this is the place to be. Nice studios with all facilities and a great garden with pool, Jacuzzi and relaxing area. Most people use their own little patio for reading, eating, etc and the common facilities if you want to interact with the other guests. I noticed that quiet a lot of them are not one time visitors, but come here every year! And I can see why. Regarding the location, I went windsurfing there multiple times, just by crossing the street at Sunset and taking off right from the beach. Do wear surfing shoes, as it there are sea urchins all over the reef. As it is close (less than one mile) to one of the nicest snorkeling places (Boca Catalina), we went there almost every day (mostly by car). On top of that the personnel and owners are extremely nice and helpful in advising what to do around the island. All in all, we'll be back.
My husband and I stayed in Aruba for a week. We stayed in Garden 9 which had a patio with ocean view. I felt this hotel has a great value. Great Trip! Great hotel ! Great staff! We will be back!
Wij hebben een geweldige vakantie gehad bij Sunset Beach in Aruba! De studio's zijn van alle gemakken voorzien. Prima bedden, een schone en ruime keuken en een heerlijk terras waar je gezellig met elkaar kunt ontbijten, maar ook van de bbq gebruik kan maken. Dagelijks wordt de studio schoongemaakt en voorzien van schone handdoeken. De ligging van Sunset is ook heel erg mooi in het noorden van het eiland. Pal aan de oceaan en dicht bij één van de mooiste snorkelplekken van het eiland. Wel is aan te raden om een auto te huren om alle overige mooie plekjes van Aruba te ontdekken. Sunset Beach is echt een aanrader! Mooi, heel gezellig, geweldig personeel wat je altijd wil helpen en een prachtige locatie! Jullie zien ons in ieder geval zeker terug! Als het aan ons ligt zeker tot weerziens!
What a wonderful, relaxing vacation in beautiful Aruba at Sunset Beach Studios. We loved the quiet, secluded location. Yet we were still able to drive to nearby parts of the Island. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub. We also enjoyed being able to sit on the terrace and the short walk across the street to the beach. We would love to return to the Island as well as Sunset Beach Studios.
Gregg & I have been coming to Aruba for last 6 years and we always stay here at Sunset ... Eve & JP are absolutely wonderful and the staff are just so sweet and wonderful they always take wonderful care of us and Jackie & Suzanne are wonderful also .. We highly recommend booking your place to stay is here ... It is so peaceful & quiet and straight across from the ocean and every evening you get an amazing sunset ... Heaven on Earth ...
I am writing to inform you that Tiffany and I had an outstanding stay at your studio during our recent trip to Aruba. The atmosphere around your property is amazing! Everyone (guests and staff), was so friendly. Additionally ,your team was quick to address any questions/concerns we had. Our family loves Aruba and we will definitely try to return to Aruba for a future stay. Thanks again for all your service and hospitality during our visit.
If you want to relax, feel secure, appreciate a very attentive staff, meet wonderful people, enjoy beautiful sunsets, then a stay at Sunset Beach Studios should be a priority. Even though we are members at a prestigious Aruban timeshare, all future Arubian bookings will be done at Sunset Beach Studios. Try it, you'll like it
Aruba is truly a beautiful island filled with plenty of amenities for the average and not-so-average visitor. The resorts are plentiful and so are the activities. However, if you are like me, I like to get away from the crowds and the chaos. Sunset Beach Studios allows its visitors to have the privacy, comfort, and amenities to feel at home but also have the freedom of being on vacation. The location is near the nightlife of the City but far away enough to have the privacy. Not only can one experience a gorgeous Aruban sunset, but to have the availability to take a night swim in the pool or relax in the hot tub and stargaze is a major bonus to a vacationer like myself. While the resorts are comfortable, so is Sunset Beach Studios. Additionally, I like having the options to make my meals or eat out while also not having to deal with the hoards of other vacationers--the supermarket is less than 8 mins away from the studios. Personally, I like to rent a vehicle and explore all the other beaches around the island--Catalina beach, small but incredibly fun, is another 6 mins away from the studios. I plan to visit Aruba again this summer with more members of my family, and Sunset Beach Studios will be my first choice! Bonus: the staff is terrific and helpful PLUS they respect your privacy. Plus all the guests I've encountered have been delightful. Don't overlook this place!
