My husband and I found this wonderful "boutique" hotel on Trip Advisor. Our #2 Casita was clean, spacious and offered a full kitchen. We ate breakfast in our room, took advantage of the loaner cooler, beach chairs, snorkel and masks, and drove our rental car to explore the beautiful island of Aruba. The high rise hotels have all the bells... More

The one bedroom apartments are very well-maintained, the kitchen has all the amenities you could want, and most importantly, the staff went out of their way to make our stay a very enjoyable experience. If you prefer quiet, ask for an apartment in the interior of the complex. Only downside was the Wi-Fi was a bit slow, at times. Excellent... More

Great authentic Caribbean look and feel, amazingly friendly and helpful staff. I stayed at the Radisson and the Ritz during my stay and Boardwalk was my favorite. We stayed in one of the Cabinas and they were extremely spacious and well designed. I recommend this place to anyone staying in Aruba.

Very clean and wonderful owners. They are interested in making guests comfortable. Charming hammocks and bbq area. The hotel is not on beach,but great place to experience Aruba. Beach is 3 minute walk. Great family hotel.

this boutique hotel is special . it is wonderful if you need a spacious room or if you enjoy having a kitchen . the grounds are beautiful and the staff is great . you are across from Marriott and Ritz Carlton and for the most part no one bothers you eat in their restaurants, however we were given a difficult...

Be forewarned, this is not a "full service" hotel but rather a small, quaint boutique property located a short walk to the beach behind the Marriott and Ritz Carlton high rise properties. If you are looking to get away from the crowds and size of the traditional high-rise/low-rise hotels on the beaches of Aruba, then this would be an excellent... More

What a gem the boardwalk aruba is! The staff was so accommodating. We arrived on Saturday night after the office was closed. Our key to,our casita was taped to the front door. They are not there on Sunday's but we met the owner on Monday morning. If i could think of anything negative that would be the only thing. Our... More

The property is beautiful. Our studio casita was perfect for two. The accommodations were fresh. Unlike any place I have ever stayed, the hotel had dispensers for soap, shower gel and shampoo from Aloe Aruba. The stuff was so great that we stopped at the factory store and stocked up. The front desk ladies, Stephanie and Kimberly, were great and... More

Boardwalk Hotel was a great place to stay and relax. We shared a two bedroom casita with our brother and sister-in-law. Space was just right, We enjoyed the balcony and the outdoor relaxation area for all guests. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. Alice and Katinka were always helpful. We wish we could have stayed longer.

A great charming little hotel! The garden made all the difference. We had our own little patio that was lovely, both in the afternoons when the beach got too hot and some of the evenings for drinks and a barbecue. Wherever you went all the staff gave you a lovely and warm greeting. If you wanted anything the service was... More
