Sunset Beach Studios is a lovely, low-key place to stay in Aruba. The ocean view is great and there is good snorkeling right across the road. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchenette (sink, hot plate and full size fridge) was very handy. There is bus stop in front of the inn if you don't have a rental... More

If you want a fast paced, highly commercial Caribbean experience, do NOT stay at Sunset Beach Studios! Please leave it for those of us who want a slower-paced, awesome, independent vacation. The location is just perfect - far away from both high- and low-rise resorts, and just a one-mile drive to the best snorkeling and chilling beach - Boca Catalina.... More

We specifically went to Aruba for the windsurfing and other active water sports. Sunset Beach studios was the perfect location. We could walk to Fisherman Huts and snorkeling. We stayed in Garden 8 with ocean view. Our front porch had great view of ocean! Every morning we could sit and plan the day while watching the sail boats and windsurfers... More

My wife and I visited Aruba for the first time on our honeymoon, and were so glad we chose to stay at Sunset Beach. The location is phenomenal - an idyllic spot, situated right next to the ocean near the Northern tip of the island, away from the hustle and bustle of Oranjestad and the high-rise hotel district. The staff... More

The location was the best of it. The room was small but we expected it, the closet space was accommodating. We stayed there for 2 weeks. We planned to make breakfast at home and faced the problem right away - the little 2-burner portable cooktop was working really slow and poorly. It took us half an hour to boil water... More

Dear Boris & Irina, We are sorry to read that your second week with us didn't go as planned. It's true that a family that we are friendly with checked in and rented 3 Studios. It was a family reunion that doesn't happen very often at Sunset. Our friends brought down their children and 4 small grandchildren. It is obvious... More

My husband and I stayed here in April of 2013 (drop down menu didn't offer April '13 as an option, hence the next closest available date of July '13) after I thoroughly researched reasonably priced options for our stay, as hotels were several hundred dollars per night! Sunset Beach was wonderful, good price, close proximity to snorkeling beaches, a short... More

my wife and 3 yr old daughter and I stayed in a garden room, #3, for 9 days in late april of this year and had an awesome time. This is a great choice to get away from the high/low rise hotel scene and is still close enough if you want to go to those areas/beaches/shopping etc. We rented a... More

This was our second time staying with Eve and JP the owners. Again it totally fulfilled our expectations. We find the studios simple and charming with all the comforts we could need to enjoy a quiet and peaceful vacation. We stayed in Ocean 1 where we stayed the first time. Love the ocean view. The pool area and Palapa were... More

We booked the large oceanfront room for our honeymoon, from Monday - Saturday, just after our wedding. This was the perfect place for us to stay! The room was very large and maybe more space than we needed but the view was spectacular! We loved the location as we were close to Arashi Beach and Boca Catalina, which were two... More
