If you are looking for a quite getaway with clean rooms and friendly staff at a reasonable rate, Sunset Beach is the place to stay in Aruba. You don't have all the amenities you would in a high-rise hotel, but the peace and quite and friendly service more than makes up for that. The owners will go out of their... More

We stayed 9 days in Ocean 2, 6 days in Garden 6 over the 2012 Christmas holidays. Hosts were great, JP always had time to talk with us, all their suggestions were perfect for us. We like quiet locations, away from resorts, and near snorkeling, this had all that at a great value. Ocean 2 was wonderful with views of... More

Pros: pretty sunset, nice palm trees, clean pool nice staff Cons: you definately need a car, bring water shoes because there isn't a beach AT ALL in front of the place so you have to be mobile unless you stay by the small pool unable to see the water, the bed is so hard, this place hasn't been updated since...

Sunset Beach was wonderful. JP, Eve and all the staff were great! Our studio was just perfect and the sunsets were awesome! The location is perfect for a quiet get-a-way but just minutes from the night life at the casinos! If you are planning a trip to Aruba, we would highly recommend staying at Sunset Beach - we stayed in... More

It was our first trip Aruba, and this property was the perfect location for us, We stayed in Ocean 2 which faced the beach, here we enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets every night, and dinners outside on the porch in the warmth of the Caribbean. Our room was relaxing, comfortable and clean, everything we needed was available, hot plates, toaster, coffee... More

This was our first trip to Aruba, and it was amazing. It always feels like you're rolling the dice when trying to find a good, yet affordable place to stay, and Sunset Beach Studiios did not disappoint....in fact, it was everything we had hoped for and more. JP, Eve, and Aida went out of their way to make us feel... More

Just as there’s a love for a dive bar, apparently (based on prior reviews) there’s also a love for dive motels. Unfortunately, when you stay at a dive motel you have to sleep there. Picture a vacation where all the windows of the motel have metal bars covering them and owners provide “The Club” which they recommend that everyone uses... More

We had our first visit at the studios for 10 days December 6th-16th. We got in after the office had closed but they were kind enough to put some Amstel Brights, limes, Douwe Egbert's coffee and bagels in the unit for us. We watched the sun set across from our terrace, the first of many more. This is a great... More

After visiting aruba for 10 year in a row, Sunset has sort of become our second home. Our daughter (4y) loves it! Close to the beach, and with a clean pool, 2 outdoor BBQ's, a porch at each studio, and an outside lounge area in the shade of the cabana where's there's always a cool breeze, this is this is...

Good location - it is a medium walk (probably not doable with kids) or a very short drive to the high-rises but just far enough away to feel like a different island! Studios are well-equipped and clean. The grounds - pool/hottub/etc - the same. Free wifi. Recommend a rental car for getting around. It is quiet and relaxing, yet still... More
