Our Guest Reviews

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

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.
The most accommodating staff I've ever come across. Every detail has been thought out and implemented. The View, it's spectacular and we loved every minute of it! This place is so special. It took me this long since our visit to write a review. I don't want others to know, LOL! We've been to Aruba more than 10 times and this place was by far the best yet. I really can't say enough about it. We loved our time here. Looking to return in the near future. Thank you Aruba Sunset Beach Studios.
Great location and friendly staff with well equipped accommodation. Definitely recommend.
The moment we arrived at Sunset Studios, we felt welcomed. JP, Eve, and their entire staff are so friendly and accommodating. The studios are very cozy and very well stocked. Rooms have a great view of the Caribbean, and the sunsets are breathtaking. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious pool and jacuzzi. The outside dining area was so great. We had many dinners on the grill under the stars. The location is perfect. Not far from the amazing shops, so many restaurants, entertainment, and all the different amazing beaches. Thank you JP, Eve and to your entire wonderful staff for making our stay so amazing and memorable. We will definitely be booking with yall on our next trip to Aruba. We would highly recommend staying at Aruba Sunset Studios.
Always a wonderful stay here in Ocean 1. Last stay was 2017, this time I brought the ashes of my best friend and travel companion. It was truly an amazing trip and I accomplished the healing I prayed for. Thank you Aruba Sunset for making my stay by myself so comfortable (almost like my friend was with me in spirit, and as always Jesus had me in his arms). You are very special people!
Fantastic location, incredibly well stocked, and superlative hosts! Windsurfing and kitesurfing across the street and with a chain of the best snorkeling beaches just north. The apartment kitchen had pretty much everything, plus they have tons of property amenities: pool, jacuzzi, grills, access to watersports equipment, and on and on. Almost everyone else there were repeat guests and knew everyone by name, and the owners greeted me personally when I arrived. Plus I could watch Caribbean sunsets from my garden apartment porch nightly. Why would I stay anywhere else?
What a wonderful little “Gem”. They even helped us with a rental car! The place has everything you would need for a wonderful stay. Pool, hot tub, barbecues. We were in Garden 8 which met all our needs and was a perfect location. We then moved to “Large Ocean 1” which was very roomy and had great views of the ocean and sunsets. Our first day at Sunset Beach Studios I cut my leg and Eve took me and my sister to the Emergency at the hospital. Eve stayed with us the whole time, we couldn’t have asked for more. Eve was so helpful for us and the hospital staff was great too. JP was in Amsterdam and we met him when he got back home. We sure didn’t let this wreck our holiday as we were there for 2 weeks! We would definitely come back and stay at Sunset Beach Studios, all the staff are so friendly and helpful and everyone there is like “Family". Thanks Eve and JP, what a wonderful place you have! Plus a lot of awesome guests! Cheers, Brenda and Dawn
Our 2nd visit to Sunset and it was great! The studio, grounds, owners and staff are the best ever! Our only complaint was time moves too quickly there! Cant wait to return!
Stayed in the Garden 2 Studio for a week, just lovely if you don't want the hustle and bustle. Super nice hosts, great pool to cool off, BBQ possibility, we didn't miss anything, if Aruba again then Aruba Sunset Beach Studios :-) A car is an advantage for shopping and the hosts helped here too!
Stayed November 22. Aruba was on my Bucket List and didn't disappoint. Very lucky to find Sunset Beach Studios at first time on the internet, stayed in Large Garden 1. Brilliant set up, staff were excellent and very helpful, always greeted with a smile. Ideal location with easy access to the beach and Hotel strip. If we return, I will not hesitate to book same accommodation, thanks again for making it an excellent Vacation. P.S. Amsterdam was fab 😎🍻⚓
Simply amazing, everything was just perfect. The property and staff were heavenly.
What a wonderful little gem. We usually stay at a time share, but having used our weeks for the year, and still wanting another trip down to Aruba we booked a studio here and are very glad we did! Studios are nicely furnished and the kitchen is equipt with all the basics. (Electric kettle was a nice touch to go with the French press) Complex is a short drive to Arashi Beach, Tres Trapi and Boca Catalina. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful, we will definitely stay here again! Thank you for a wonderful week
We enjoyed our short stay at the Sunset studios. The room was just the right size. Everything was in working order in the suite. We took advantage of the pool, but not the hot tub. Beautiful grounds on property. We would definitely stay again.
This is a wonderful setting to spend a week in Aruba. Terrific hosts, friendly staff, sociable cats. JP and Eve have a bit of paradise to share with their guests. I enjoyed every minute staying at the Suites and exploring Aruba with my niece and her husband.
This place was great all employees knew our names from day 1. Cool room with very close to parking and pool literally 30 steps each way from our room. A really neat outdoor shower with not cold water to rinse off or remove pesky sand from your feet. Little kitchenettes with everything u need for cooking. Was a great experience. Thank you.
