Our Guest Reviews

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

Had a great stay at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios! Studio was small but all we needed for 2. Owners and staff were very accommodating and the atmosphere was great!! Just a short way from the high rise hotels,much quieter and peaceful!! Beautiful but rocky beach in front of hotel that we walked each day and had almost to ourselves! Beautiful view of the ocean, lots of seashells! Accommodations had pool and hot tub which were great and never too crowded. Met up with other guests each night around the pool to visit, great place!! I will be staying there on my next visit to Aruba!!
We stayed at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios during Christmas 2015 and straight away we got the best welcome we could have hoped for. The airline lost our luggage and as it was holiday period it was basically impossible to have any contact to the airline service. The staff did basically everything they could to help us to contact the airline and the owners even lent us some of their own swimming suits and t-shirts that we could get by the first days without our own. The apartments are located in a very good and relaxing neighborhood and not far away from the "high rise" area where the brand hotels and casinos are located, especially if you walk by the beach line. There are not too much services very close by, but at least we enjoyed that we could make our own breakfast and enjoy it in our own terrace. Of course it helped that the kitchen was very well equipped. Overall we had the greatest holiday and really enjoyed our stay at Aruba and Sunset Beach Studios.
My sister and I traveled to Aruba for a nice, quiet and relaxing vacation. We choose to stay at small, local owned cottages for our yearly Sister Trip. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios was just what we were looking for. The location was fantastic, the people were friendly and helpful and we had everything we needed. If you're looking for resort type or party place lodging, this would not be for you. But if you want peace and quiet, a beautiful ocean, a nice pool and wonderful owners and staff, you won't go wrong with Aruba Sunset Beach Studios.
Our stay was fabulous - to say the least. Sitting at out outside table looking at the ocean and the sunsets made us not want to leave. The location is great. I caught a large bonefish right out front our second day. I also cannot say enough about you and the entire staff, very friendly and helpful. And to top it off, you did something to the Wifi and we could watch our dogs!
We have to say Aruba is an awesome place. The weather was great, the people were awesome. The staff at Sunset Beach are wonderful - very friendly and helpful and they ensure your stay is relaxing and enjoyable. Large Garden Studio 1 is our absolute favorite - nice size room, lots of natural light and good storage for your cloths and luggage and we loved the front deck - a nice place to relax. Again, thank you for making our stay a perfect one! We will be back some day :)
Dear Friends at Sunset Beach: After our second visit this year I can assure you we’ll be back. Had a wonderful time again. Enjoyed spending time with Jackie and Eve and JP. Loved Ocean 1. I think that’s going to be our home base in the future. Say HI to everyone from us and we already miss you.
The apartments are located at Palm Beach area, only 1 street separates the beach from the apartments. It is a wonderful area, white sand beaches, sometimes you can see Flamingos there and a variety of water sports can be practiced at Palm Beach. The owner of the apartment and the other staff are wonderful!!!! Very helpful, give you all information you need, rooms are very clean. I appreciate their customer service a lot! Buses leave in front of the apartment, the location is silent, perfect for relaxation, absolutely worth staying there! Kitchen is equipped with all necessary items, towels and toilet articles are included as well, very clean swimming pool, sunbeds in front of the pool. There wasn't anything to complain about! Best stay I've ever had, thank you so much!!!
First time to Aruba for us. What a great place to stay! Just a few minutes by car to the high rise areas for lots of shopping (Super Food became our best friend as we ate in for breakfast and one other meal) and restaurants and just a few minutes to the North was our favorite beach, Arashi. Jackie was very helpful with providing recommendations of places to visit (or not if they weren't worth it), restaurants, and beaches. Renting beach chairs for the week is highly recommended. They loaned us a cooler for the week, too. Eve reserved our Sunset Cruise while we were out and about. Friendly staff, beautiful place! Wish there was a ceiling fan on the patio of Ocean 1 because there was little air flow from the breeze but the scenery is stunning. Highly recommend!
Beste Sunset Team. Wij zijn weer goed thuis aangekomen. Nog een keer van harte bedankt voor de uitstekend mooie service en een vakantie die wij zeker in ons hele leven niet zullen vergeten. Groetjes aan het Team en misschien tot de volgende keer!
My husband and I went to Aruba for the first time this summer and stayed for 10 days in the Large Garden Studio at the Sunset Beach Studios. It was perfect for us. The studio has everything you need to live like a local in Aruba. Each morning we'd make coffee and sit on the deck to enjoy the view of the beach across the street. Each evening we'd sit in the same place, sipping a Balashi, watching the sunset. As we'd go off on adventures throughout our stay, the studio was the perfect place to return to--whether to grab a quick bite to eat or take a dip in the pool. Everyone who works at Sunset Beach Studios is incredibly friendly and helpful. The property is adorable and well maintained. It's quiet and private, the perfect setting to relax and unwind. If you're looking for a place swarming with tourists, bustling with overpriced (and usually not very good) restaurants and focused on the party, this is not the place for you. While we were happy to visit the Palm Beach/Eagle Beach area, we were so glad to be able to return to our studio. It's true: Sunset Beach Studios is not a luxury, five-star accommodation with perks like room service and a bar in the swimming pool. But it's charm and impeccable service and fun, local feel more than made up for it. One thing we highly recommend: Rent a car. The area is a little more residential and a car will allow you to not only do everyday things, like go to the grocery store and hit the laundry mat, but also it enables you to explore more of the island. We discovered so many different beaches and local takeaway spots because we had the car. And, if you do want to hit the town, you can hop on a bus that will take you to Palm Beach/Eagle Beach or Oranjestead.
Zimmer ausreichend groß mit Küchentresen und (kleinem, aber ausreichendem) Badezimmer. Sehr sauber, die Ladies putzen und fegen ständig und helfen auch gern bei der Wäsche. Der Innenhof ist karibisch, voller Pflanzen/Blumen mit jeweils eigener Terasse, mit Gemeinschafts- Pool und Whirlpool. Über die Strasse (hinten eigentlich nicht zu hören) gelangt man zum Schiffs-Wrack, toller Schnorchelspot. Auch baden ist möglich, keine echter Strand aber zu diesem ist es nicht weit. Tolle Strände in Fahrrad Nähe. Zu Fuss oder mit dem Fahrrad ist der Kitespot erreichbar (Sandstrand). Die Besitzer und Angestellten sind sehr freundlich, helfen auch mit Tipps zu Surfspots und Ausflügen. Ausserdem stehen Kühlboxen, Schnorchelequipment, usw. zur Verfügung. Toller Sonnenuntergang am Meer direkt vor der Tür. Würde jederzeit wieder kommen! Nur in diese Unterkunft (wir haben die gesamte Insel bereist). Thanks very much Eve and J.P.!
We came to Aruba (couple + 1 baby) and wanted to stay in a quiet place, close to the beach. Sunset Beach Studios was the perfect place for us: the best beaches where either a few minutes walk or a couple of minutes driving away from us. It was quiet and peaceful. We could come back for a lunch nap with our baby, and at night we bbq and went to the pool, while he was asleep. Besides that the staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms were convenient. If we would come back to Aruba we will definitely go back to Sunset Beach Studios.
I went with my 2 children on a special family holiday (ages 10 and 19) to celebrate my 51st Birthday with my kids and have a fun time together. The location turned out to be the best idea: out of the very busy commercial area, allowing us to savor the peacefulness, the sunrises and sunsets, walking across the street to the ocean and enjoy the charming and cozy place.. The staff was very helpful and with a positive disposition and the right suggestions.. We were in a garden studio. We enjoyed meeting our neighbors and we had everything we needed.. Minutes from the more busy area, walking distance to the windsurfing and kite surfing, but with the tranquility I had hoped for.. we were there from July 23rd to the 30th.. The studio was well equipped, very clean. We enjoyed the pool, the jacuzzi and the vegetation of the garden.. Which also gives it a special plus.. Hopefully next time we will have the view to the ocean too..
My family and I always enjoy staying at Sunset every time we go to Aruba! It is so relaxing, friendly, casual, clean, conveniently located, and we like having a kitchenette. At least once during our stay we get together with everyone else in the common garden area by the pool and have a cookout of fish and sate (of course with peanut sauce and kroepoek) plus whatever other pot luck dishes people bring. Playing in the pool and relaxing with a cold Balashi in the hot tub are favorites, as well as a short ride up to the best snorkeling place on the island - Catalina Cove. I cannot image staying anywhere else when in Aruba!
We have been going to Aruba for 14 years and have been staying at sunset beach for 7 years. JP, EVE and staff are the best and most helpful people you will ever want to meet. The accommodations and the location is the best if you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy. No fuss and no fighting elevators. The best sunsets you will view.
The place was absolutely fabulous with a perfect location. We loved having the communal area to congregate with family and friends to cook dinner and socialize. Couldn’t have asked for a better place and spot for the LAGO reunion. We will see you again in a couple years!
Elena warmly welcomed us upon arrival and was generous with information and offerings. Our studio, number 2, had what we determined as the best location, in the back but with an ocean view and full benefit of the breeze which blew thru the unit. We liked the benefit of the kitchen to cook our own food, the super food market was not too far away (being vegetarian the restaurants, minus Green Food Service in the Orange mall, restaurants offered overpriced poor vegetarian options). The studio was family like, with plenty of privacy and space when you wanted it. We ate most dinners in the common area, at a table with an ocean view, in front of our unit. The bed was very comfortable and the accommodations offered everything we needed. The staff assured we had everything we needed included clean beach and bath towels, sheets and kitchen towels. The location of the studios is the best, a beach right across the street and the best snorkeling just down the road, at Boca Catalina Beach (towards the California lighthouse - in the large home neighborhood, first left). I wish there was more education to tourist about being respectful of the reef (I observed much entitlement and disrespect of nature by the snorkeling tour groups). I would stay here again for sure, as most who we met have. It is definitely a gem in Aruba. The name Sunset Beach is most accurate when nature cooperates, as it did on our first nights stay.
My daughter and I recently returned from a stay at Sunset. We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the Garden View Studio. Many nice beaches were nearby. Jacky and Eline were always available and helped with making reservations for a sailboat cruise and jeep tour. We will definitely return in the future with the rest of our family! Thanks for the wonderful memories!
We stayed at Sunset Beach Studios for 6 nights. We had a great time. The bed is huge and comfortable! For your convenience you must rent a car, but it is close to everywhere. The Malmok Beach is great for snorkeling and kite-surfing! I highly recommend it!
This was my 5th time in Aruba and Sunset was my favorite place. It's perfect if you like tranquility, sleep with open windows, hear the wind and waves, it's good for the soul. I enjoyed my outdoor couch and the pool was nice. The personnel was great. When I go back to Aruba I will go back there unless if I move to the island!
