Our Guest Reviews

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

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.
A wonderful visit at Sunset Beach Studios! Very clean, well equipped rooms, comfy bed, a nice pool and hot tub. Bus stop located outside and can easily visit other parts of the island. JP & Eve are super friendly and welcoming! Ivy, on reception, was also very helpful and friendly; a great and safe place to stay!
An oasis of calm and sunsets The location is unparalleled. The hotel is on a quiet part of the main artery road facing the ocean. Nothing sits between your deck and the sunset view. It is in a peaceful part of the island between the hotel district and the large residential development. 5 minutes to a supermarket and all of the touristic activities. JP and Eve are amazing hosts. They anticipated all of our needs. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and cookware. The bed was incredibly comfortable. I traveled with my sister. We stayed in a single king room overlooking the ocean. They even made up the bed with two sets of sheets so we each had our own side. They were extremely friendly and helpful. My sister and I were born and raised in Seroe Colorado on the other end of the island. We were there for an Elementary School 52nd anniversary reunion. The hospitality at the Aruba Sunset Beach Studios reminded us of the hospitality and charm of the Aruba we loved when we were growing up. The environment is casual and unpretentious. It was more like renting an apartment for the week, without the hustle and chaos of the big high-rises. We chatted with our neighbors, hung out on our deck, swam in the pool, drove around the island in search of glimpses from 50 years ago. At the end of the day, we loved coming back to our little oasis. Thank you, JP and Eve. We, like so many others, we will be returning again and again. Hopefully, for longer than a week next time.
Wonderful quiet spot, away from noisy casinos and nightlife, and across the street from the turquoise beach! EXCEPTIONAL! Eef and JP were so helpful and welcoming. The room was perfect, clean, comfy bed, plush linens, etc. Super fast wi-fi. The kitchenette had everything I needed, and the grocery stores are super close. They really watch out for you and your comfort so that you have a great time while in their care. I CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK! 5 STARS!
Een heel mooi gelegen kleinschalig complex direct aan zee. Dit staat garant voor een hele mooie zonsondergang. Iedere avond weer. Het complex heeft een zwembad en jacuzzi en een buitendouche. Daarnaast zijn de locaties voor windsurf en kitesurf op loopafstand net als het witte wereldberoemde strand van arashi beach. De eigenaar en de eigenaresse zijn heel relax die je overal bij helpen en altijd in zijn voor een praatje of wat te drinken. Aruba is het veiligste eiland van de Cariben. Het complex zit ook nog eens in de beste buurt van Aruba, dus een wandeling is absoluut veilig overdag en in de avond. Inmiddels onze tweede bezoek en waarschijnlijk niet het laatste bezoek.
Well this has been our 4th return visit to Aruba Sunset Beach Studios. I don’t even know how else to describe it because we found our little piece of Heaven right there. We always stay in an ocean front studio. We love hanging out on the porch to do absolutely nothing. Drinking our coffee in the morning for 2 hours lol. The Sunsets are amazing. We grab our chair, walk across the street and sit there for some time. JP and Eef and the rest of the crew at Sunset are so welcoming and go above and beyond to make your stay the best ever. Yes we will come back Year after Year. We love to go snorkeling. No need to go on an excursion. You can walk to Boca Catalina or Tres Trapi and go right in from the beach. If you want true relaxation in paradise you will want to stay at our favorite place on Aruba. My sister feels the same way. Thank you Eef and JP for providing true happiness.
Dear JP, Eve & Staff, Thank you for sharing your little 'Slice of Heaven' here on Aruba! The accommodations were perfect. Your recommendations were exactly what we wanted - fresh fish (at Old Cunucu House, Wacky Wahoo & Bingo!), Hiking at the National Park, view from the Lighthouse + Hooiberg, watching the boats come in at Zeerover (plus the delicious shrimp). We also appreciate the birthday decor. What a way to celebrate. We have fallen in love with Sunset + Aruba! Fondly, Ben & Kelly Huss. Florida
Great environment, location: everything was very nice, beautiful beaches, excellent, helpful staff, privacy, friendly owners. We spent 9 wonderful days in Aruba. Thank you
Dear Sunset Aruba, It was our first time here, and we love it! We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday on the Island. Special thanks to "Mary (Marit)" for an amazing reception, knowledgeable and kindness, she is fantastic! Fabio & Andrea Barcellos Brazil. R.J. / USA. F.L. (08/2022)
Beautiful stay in Aruba at Sunset Beach Studios. The owner, Eve, was kind enough to upgrade our room due to issues with a missed initial flight. Marit and all staff were also very kind, helpful and gave us great tips for getting around, where to go, where to eat, what to do etc etc. The location is perfect with a beautiful sea view, and nice and peaceful, which is just what I wanted for a relaxing break. But its just 2 mins away (by car) from the main tourist/hotels area and palm beach, or a few mins from malmok beach. Perfect. Room and bed was great, comfortable and spacious. Fully equipped in every room, large wardrobe, bathroom and kitchen with just about everything you can think of for self catering (blender for our morning smoothies was great). Would definitely stay again on my next trip to Aruba. Thanks again! Mike & Kade
Our studio had a beautiful view in front of the sea and the room was very comfortable with all the amenities we needed. The bathroom and the kitchen are complete with everything that you need to have a perfect experience. JP and Eve are very kind and they always answered our requests in a few minutes. The cleaning service is excellent. The location is just perfect: close to the best beaches on the island, five car minutes away from the supermarket and the restaurants. We recommend Aruba Sunset Beach Studios for anyone who wants a calm and great place to stay in Aruba. Amazing!!
Great environment, location: everything within walking distance, beautiful beaches, excellent, helpful staff, privacy, friendly owners. We spent 9 wonderful days in Aruba :)))
First of all sorry for the late rating. In just a few words I can only say that it was simply a dream come true with you! So familiar and so warm. The apartments very clean, the pool and jacuzzi perfect! It was a fantastic and really wonderful holiday with you, THANK YOU!
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!
