“Loved our first visit to Aruba and Sunset Beach Studios”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

We have just returned from our first visit to Aruba. Our choice of Sunset Beach Studios was the best we could have made. We spent our first few days in Ocean 2 and the rest of our week was spent in Garden 6. Both options have their advantages. We were delighted to find our favorite beaches were literally minutes away. Dining was within minutes as well. We traveled from one end of the island to the other with ease. Try the Madagascar Adventure tour with Alfred. It's fun and personalized. The staff and owners of Sunset are friendly, gracious and extremely helpful. We used recommendations from Bianca and Susie the entire week and were never disappointed. We ran into airline cancellations for our return trip. Bianca and Susie pretty much saved our sanity and helped us to enjoy more time in Aruba! Thank you!!!!!! Bruce and Sonia from Minnesota

When I booked almost a week at Sunset Beach, I was attracted to its boutique-like character, to the fact that the water is literally across the street, to the palapa and swimming pool, to its proximity to, yet distance from, the high rise hotels and the northern eating section, the ease of getting to and from the airport, etc. It was all better than anticipated. The room (Large Ocean View) was charming. The owners and staff accommodated a glitch in my travel schedule. the other guests were a hoot, and they were both engaging when I wanted them to be while they also gave me distance when I wanted that. There is a little traffic on the road, but it never entered my consciousness. Perfect.

Room Tip: To me, the ultimate room is the Large Ocean View, but the other ocean view rooms are outstanding, an...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a 2 week vacation at Sunset Beach Studios (Dec. 27 2013 to Jan 10 2014). The location is perfect, directly across the street from the ocean on the way to the lighthouse. Close to shopping and nightlife but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.
The pool is clean and never crowded. The units are clean and comfortable with mini kitchens.
We enjoyed many evenings under the thatched roof of the common area talking, laughing and making new friends. The owners are available if needed and the office staff went out of their way to accommodate any requests we made.
This was our 5th trip to Aruba together and we have stayed at different places each time. Sunset Beach Aruba ranks right up there with the best of them. Harry and Persis Robbins USA

Finally had time to write this review. We were at Sunset for two weeks starting Nov. 24th. What a great place! Very quiet and peaceful. We were in the large ocean front studio. What a great view of the sunsets. Snorkeling is just down the road at Boca Catalina and Arashi beaches. Very close to great many great places to eat, and shopping. Try Wacky Wahoos and The Blue Lobster. Try the jeep tour with Madasgar and Alfred, it was a great day. We'll define thy be back!

I simply loved the laid back atmosphere of Sunset Beach Studios. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. The grounds were beautifully cared for and the location is unbeatable. Away from the crowds and quiet yet close enough to the action that one can walk to it. A lovely place ran by lovely people. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in Aruba.

Room Tip: The Garden rooms are less expensive and have a great patio to enjoy the island breezes and relaxing...

Our visit lasted 11 days over Christmas & New Years. We were in Garden #7. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay! The Sunset Beach Studios was wonderful - great location (away from the crowds at the high rise hotels/condos), room was clean & comfortable, and the price was very reasonable. Having the kitchenette was such a plus, and it was well appointed (we even had a juicer machine). Our room was recently remodeled so everything was nice & new. The safe in our room was large enough to hold our iPads on the shelf inside.

I saw a comment about flies & mosquitos - those pests are typical for Aruba (at least that's been our experience at the high rise area as well as other condo areas) and our room did have a fly swatter!!! : ). The cleaning ladies are as involved as you want them to be. We asked for fresh towels & sheets and I was perfectly happy to make my own bed - they actually never came into our room (but would have been glad to, if that's what we would have wanted).

The big palapa is the gathering spot (you get the best wifi signal there) - you get the feeling of being in a little community - we got to know several of the other visitors while sitting there. We used the BBQs and pool, didn't get in the hot tub (I'm a little funny about soaking in hot water that others have been soaking in, but that's just me).

The beach across the street really isn't for sunbathing (too rocky, not fluffy sand) but Arashi Beach is a few minutes up the road & is beautiful. There are also a couple of great snorkel spots before you get to Arashi Beach. The beach across the street is perfect for watching sunset though!! We did that every evening and even saw the green flash!

Rusty and Tiger, the resident cats, were a delight (they look like my cat). But they are not pesky or bothersome - if you're not a cat lover, don't let this put you off the place.

We loved the Sunset Beach Studios and will definitely stay there again (maybe in one of the units that face the beach next time!)

Room Tip: Garden #7 is located right behind the pool, so at times could be a little noisy (when loud children...
