Our Guest Reviews

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

Wunderschoen!! Our family of 14 (6 adults and eight grandchildren) stayed at the beautiful Aruba Sunset Beach Studios from June 27th to July 1st, 2022. The entire Sunset Team from the planning/reservation phase through our entire stay were so nice, helpful and personable. Prior to our visit, I had requested assistance in making reservations at the Marina Pirata as I could not get in touch with them. Marit was very helpful and confirmed our dinner table for us. I also asked it would be possible for a 12-pack of Balashi be purchased and put in our refrigerator, so it was cold when we arrived. Sure enough they did this for us, and we reimbursed them for the cost of course. Based on their recommendation for our party size, we rented the Large Ocean 1, Ocean 2, Large Garden 1 and Garden View 7. The units were well prepared by housekeeping, and everything worked out perfect!! The Large Ocean I unit became our place for congregating as it has a beautiful view of the ocean/sunset with a large table that comfortably seated more than ten people with additional seating also outside. After dinner, we played cards including Old Maid while listening to island-music. So much fun and so relaxing!!! Everyone also enjoyed the pool and hot tub during our stay The location is tops!!!! Walking distance to Malmok to swim and snorkel and Tres Trapi for a swim with some sea turtles. What an experience for everyone!!! A short drive to snorkel at Catalina Bay, swim at Arashi Beach or visit the California Lighthouse. It is very close to the high-rise Palm Beach area also. Did I mention the beautiful sunsets!!? 😊 Although owners, JP and Eve, were on holidays back in the Netherlands, Marit, Ivy and Renee were attentive to any of our needs which were not much. They even communicated with us about a tropical storm that was to skirt the island. A letter was placed in our room with advice on how to prepare and emergency WhatsApp phone numbers. They also provided us with candles and matches just in case power was lost. Very thoughtful and fortunately, the storm passed quickly with no damage. On moving day, Ivy told us we did not have to checkout promptly at 11AM as our Timeshare was not ready. We loved the units, facilities, location and entire staff at the Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. A very personalized experience which we all HIGHLY recommend!!!
Very nice All in all, a very nice place, removed a bit from the big hotels -- They're about 3-4 minutes down the road. Our studio was not modern, but comfortable with a beachy feel. We had a "garden apartment" because it was on the side of the building, but our private deck faced the ocean, which was really nice. The staff was very welcoming and responsive. Great snorkeling right off the beach at the wreck -- So many fish! Sea turtles at Tres Trapi just a 2 minute walk down the road, and other great snorkeling locations a short walk away. A two minute drive to Arashi beach, which has lots of sand and amenities. If you're looking for "relatively" inexpensive place on the beach, with some privacy, then you should consider it. If you prefer to be around lots people and don't want to have to drive to get a meal or prepare food in your room, then a big hotel right in town may be more your speed.
Our friends ask why do we keep going on the same holiday year after year. Our answer: why try to fix something that’s not broken! This end of the Island has not succumbed to over development, it’s quiet but still accessible to buzz if you want. It’s a stones throw from superb snorkeling and is immaculately clean. That’s not just a C19 thing, it’s always been super clean. The studios vary in size but all are very comfortable and provide exactly what you would need for a free from hassle holiday. We don’t like hotel style holidays, we travel hand luggage and live in swimwear, sarongs, shorts with 1 obligatory dress for me in case we eat somewhere that doesn’t permit super casual. Without exception we have met the most wonderful people staying here, many we still have contact with. Free spirited, kind folks who we would choose to spend time with any day of the week. This year our neighbors for 2 weeks were a wonderful Dutch couple who we immediately became fast friends with. We laughed so much and it was as though we had always known each other. We also got to spend a week with another Dutch couple. Us ladies became fast friends too, while our husbands were off doing their own thing, even more laughs and laughing is my favorite thing😁 Doesn’t get any better in our opinion. Eve and JP, the owners, know exactly what their guests need and Eve is particularly good at reading the needs of guests. She and my husband try to do 1 BIG swim/snorkel adventure (she’s braver than me) each visit. Show me a chain hotel that is that hospitable.
Stayed for a weekend to do some kiteboarding. The space is beatifully organized. The large garden studio was comfortable, spacious (enough for 3 bags full of kiteboarding and winging gear). The jacuzzi is the perfect temperature to spend the whole night outside while looking at the stars. The owners are super friendly and there to help with anything you need. The studios have all of the amineties you need for cooking. Will definitely stay here again next time when we visit Aruba!
On our last trip to Aruba in 2021 upon leaving we found Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. No more high rise hotels for us as we found our little notch in paradise. The owners and staff were amazing. Our ocean view suite was fantastic, clean and very comfortable. Can't say enough about how pleased we are with staying here. We will return to stay here again and again! The facility has everything you need and the owners and staff are always available and they treat you like family. The best part of it was meeting other beautiful guests staying here. It was like a small family gathering. We plan to stay in touch with them and plan future get-aways etc. This place is absolutely the Best!!!! The location, view of the beach was phenomenal. We were treated like family and the staff and owners were always available should we need anything. Such a relaxing place to stay! We hated to leave but will be returning very soon! Thank you for making our Aruba vacation different from all our other visits! We absolutely Love Sunset Beach Studios!!!!!
We stayed in an ocean view studio the end of May for one week. The view was amazing and we enjoyed every sunset and having coffee on the porch in the morning. JP and Eve were very welcoming and answered every question and accommodated everything we asked. We usually cook our own meals when we visit Aruba and the kitchenette had everything we needed. Thank you JP and Eve for your wonderful hospitality.
My daughter and I spent a week at this wonderful location. Everything about the trip was perfect and certainly a lot was owed to Sunset Beach Studios. Very cool place! The service is excellent, everyone is very attentive and friendly. Every detail was perfect: bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, pool, jacuzzi, all the decor, inside and out. We even gave up going out for a day just to be able to enjoy "Our House". Unlike the "Disneyland type" hotels and places, at Sunset we have a natural style, sand, sun, sea, sports... We love it, and it will undoubtedly be our future choice!
We stayed at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios for almost 2 weeks. We had a warm welcome including a cold beer😁. We can highly recommend it to stay here. Super Service, clean rooms, cozy pool side. But our favorite was: You stay right in front of the ocean - nice sunsets. Quite place to stay. We will come back, thanks to the hosts!
Wij hebben een hele gezellige tijd gehad. Warm welkom, leuke mensen om ons heen. Jan heeft nog mee gefietst met JP. Al met al een aanbeveling voor veel gezelligheid!
What can we say after staying at Aruba Sunset Beach Studios for over 10 years . You can not ask for a better relaxing place to stay. JP, Eve and the whole Sunset Team make you feel like family. They will guide you and advise you on any aspect of the island. We love feeling like we are at our cabin in Vermont but with better weather! We can not wait to get back to a resort with a rating of 10
This place is incredible. Warm welcome from JP and Eve. The stay was soooo memorable that makes you almost forget about leaving. Rooms are very clean and well equipped including a cooler ! Spacious court yard and location make you coming back next time to the same place. Thank you VERY MUCH !!!
JP, Eve and all the wonderful staff made our visit memorable from the first greeting to our checkout. They were so accommodating and willing to work with our schedule. Snorkel equipment was available, games to play in the evenings and a delightful courtyard pool, and a gazebo to meet other guests made our stay so enjoyable. I loved that we could sleep with the windows open to hear and feel the ocean breeze. Aruba Sunset Beach Studios is a great place to chill while in Aruba. Thank you so much! We will definitely be back. Carey Thompson and family
We had a wonderful time and so happy we stayed here! We especially liked the location because it was quiet and away from the hustle & bustle of some other areas. The best snorkel spots are less than 5 mins away by car. JP, Eve & staff were so welcoming and accommodating. The gardens and pool area are so clean and well maintained. After a long day out, it was so relaxing coming back to this tranquil, tropical oasis. Our studio room was well equipped with a small kitchenette and we had a view to the ocean which was absolutely amazing. I loved the small details like having a welcome sign with our names hanging on the door and placing fresh flowers in the bathroom. That’s just one of many other reasons why this place is special. It felt like home to us and our only regret was not staying longer. But next time we will definitely extend our stay! Thank you again for giving us a great start to our Aruba vacation!
We have stayed several times and have always been happy here. Our 10 night stay was relaxing and comfortable, Eve, JP, Marit and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. Booking is very easy and flexible and they help us arrange for the Jeep rental as well making it very easy on us. We love the quiet courtyard and beautiful water views - front row for the sunsets! The housekeeping is great and fresh pool or bath towels are readily available. The staff is very attentive. I really appreciate their laundry service too - very helpful.
First time here…but it won’t be the last. We just ended an incredible week here and we are already planning our next stay. We’ve been to Aruba several times and stayed in both the high rise and low rise areas but this place is just sooooo much better! It’s quiet, tranquil and beautiful! The rooms are very spacious and well equipped. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and we made some friends that we hope to see next year, and the year after that.. and…on and on. We are planning on returning again next April, and will hopefully have a few friends along with us to enjoy this wonderful place as well. Oh, and when you go remember to bring some cat treats for RJ and Tiger.
Another perfect stay! This was our fourth stay with Sunset Studios... Another home run by JP, Eve and the entire staff.. such nice, warm and inviting people. Can't say enough nice things about this place. We just absolutely love it. Total peace and tranquility. Beautiful grounds, perfectly equipped studios, they've thought of everything. There's a reason everyone falls in love with Aruba and Sunset Studios and return time and time again. I wrote this from the AUA airport with a heavy heart and already thinking about our next stay.
Mooie appartementen/studio’s direct aan zee met prachtig uitzicht en uiterst gastvrije (gezellige) mensen. Op loopafstand is een strandje, surfscholen en zijn er snorkelplekken waar je gegarandeerd mooie vissen en schildpadden ziet. Joggen of wandelen naar de vuurtoren op 3,5 km is een mooie start van een actieve dag. Kortom: geweldig!
Wij hebben met ons bedrijf en partners gelogeerd op Sunset Beach Studio’s en zijn zeer hartelijk ontvangen door JP, Eef en Marit. Het complex is gelegen aan de goudkust van Aruba. Door simpel over te steken kom je bij de mooiste snorkelstranden van het eiland. S’avonds kan je heerlijk chillen en nagenieten van de dag op het complex, bij het zwembad waar we ook een aantal keren zelf gebarbecued hebben. Het is zeker een aanrader en voor ons een reden om terug te komen.
This was our first time in Aruba and we found this gem by searching small hotels with great reviews. We were not disappointed and we kept telling each other how happy we were that we stayed in this location and not at one of the big resorts! We wanted to see as much of Aruba and this was the perfect place to start and finish our day at. Let me start by saying that you should have a car and that it’s worth the small price. What we loved is that you can be anywhere you want quickly. Having the choice to be in the tourist areas or the quietest of beaches made all the difference to us. Sunset was the perfect base to launch our adventures from. Aruba Sunset was clean, cute and peaceful. Nice pool and gardens and the gazebo where we had our morning coffee and late night talks with a beautiful nonstop breeze was wonderful. Sunsets across the street were breathtaking and the walk along the beach in the evening will be missed! Owners Eve and JP and their staff were great. If we had a question or needed anything they were quick to help. You can mingle with the guests and owners, but everyone also gave you all the privacy you needed if you want. If you're looking for the all inclusive, stay in one beach crowded spot, it’s not for you. If you want to explore Aruba, its sights and beauty and need a clean, quiet oasis where you can recharge and relax, then Aruba Sunset is for you!
March 2022 Another wonderful stay at Sunset Beach Studios!! The owners and staff are just amazing! We cannot say enough about them. Everything you need is right there in your rooms. Quiet (when we let it be), quaint, clean and just a wonderful place to vacation. Not to forget the incredible guests that we meet every time we come and also the great friends we have made at Sunset over the years that are also guests at the same time as we are. Best place on the island!!!!! See you soon!!!
