Boardwalk Hotel is wonderful. We had a one bedroom casita that was comfortable and had everything we needed. Once on the property, you are surrounded by greenery that provides privacy, peace and quiet but you are just minutes from all the action. The hotel is just a short walk across the road from the high-rise hotels (and casinos) and Palm... More

Boardwalk Hotel is perfectly located at the end of Palm Beach and away from all the high rises,. It is an oasis just steps away from Palm Beach and close to Boca Catalina and Arashi beaches (our favorite for snorkeling). The cabanas are exquisitely decorated and are very comfortable. So quiet! Everyone working here is attentive and helpful. Easy breezy... More

We loved to stay at the boardwalk hotel. We felt more than welcome, everyone was really friendly and very helpful. Aruba is supposed to be "one happy island" and boardwalk hotel made this true. Even that we arrived very late and reception was closed, the check in was very easy and uncomplicated. The casita is beautiful and clean, in the... More

This hotel is located close to Palm Beach and the high rise hotels, but still not in the middle of all the activities. It is an oasis with its green gardens and beautiful low, colorful houses. It is quiet and gives you privacy. We loved our stay here! We had the smallest room, the studio and it had everything you... More

We come to Aruba every year and the quality of this hotel is spectacular, there is a personal touch to it, it is clean, spacious, quiet, beautifully decorated and perfectly located if you want to enjoy the beaches, far from the hustle of the city. The service is fantastic, and it is 5 minutes walking from the beach. We loved... More

We loved our casita~ a home away from home! There is no reason to stay in a "big chain hotel" when you can stay at the Boardwalk. Extremely clean, comfortable and private. A great choice for our family.

It has been my 3rd stay within one year at Boardwalk Hotel. I stayed always for 2 weeks at least. Planning process for additional stays in 2015 are already in progress. I feel very welcomed, more like a good friend than just a guest, and like the given privacy very much. For me, Boardwalk Hotel Aruba is THE place on... More

We stayed at The Boardwalk for 8 nights over Christmas. We had a 2 bedroom casita, which was perfect to accommodate my husband, myself and our 3 year old. It's very easy to get from The Boardwalk to the beach - quick and safe walk (some review said the road was very big/busy - not true - very easy to... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the boardwalk. The apartment itself is simple, very clean and it had everything we might need for our one week stay. The grounds have a small pool that was great for a before breakfast and after dinner swim, our 3 year old also loved the shallow part of the pool and really helped him... More

We returned this December to the boardwalk Hotel and had a fantastic stay. The Boardwalk has become our "go to" place in order to avoid the crowds and ridiculously over priced rooms in the hotels that line the beach. Unlike most of our friends we enjoy rising and making breakfast in our own kitchen and the short walk to beach... More
