These casitas are lovingly and strategically placed amongst gorgeous, rich tropical foliage. Fun colors around and inside the casitas promote a sense of fun and calm simultaneously. Rooms are quite spacious and well-appointed with comfortable furniture, luxurious linens and privatized patios. Just across the street awaits any given path to a coastline of beautiful beaches and breathtaking views of Aruba's... More

Staff was lovely. Located at the quiet north end of the island. Very close to the beach, across from the Ritz. Salt water pool is nice. lots of parking if you rent a car. If we ever come back to aruba, we'll stay here.

The Boardwalk Hotel is a very cutesy place where you get your own "bungalow " to stay in. We had a very enjoyable time there and everyone was so nice. It's not on the beach but it is only a short walk

We spent a very enjoyable stay at the Small Boardwalk hotel in Aruba. The hotel is really charming, well equiped and the beautiful Eagle beach is only 10 mins walk Stephanie & her staff are taking great care of their guests and provide good advice on the places of interest. Thanks again and see you another year!

We have been traveling to Aruba for 20+ years and have always stayed at the boardwalk. We love it and with the recent total renovation, it has only gotten better. We really appreciate the kitchenettes and the charcoal grill on the deck. No need to eat out every day. The place is even better than the pictures, a little oasis... More

If we ever return to Aruba, we will stay again at the Boardwalk. It's lovely. So private and intimate, but also spacious. Our patio at #10 was incredible. I loved floating in the pool late in the evening. The view of the stars framed by the palms was so relaxing. Stephanie has done a beautiful job with both the decor... More

Why stay at a high-rise hotel where your family is just a room number when you can stay at Boardwalk Aruba and be known by the staff on a first name basis and be treated like you are staying at their home. Absolutely the only place we will ever stay at in Aruba. Stephanie made us feel right at home.... More

We are staying here for our honeymoon and have loved it. Our casita is spacious, clean and bright and we have enjoyed spending time here. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the beach and 5 minutes from where we have been windsurfing. The pool is lovely and the gardens are thriving. The kitchen is well equipped and we... More

The Boardwalk Hotel is amazing. It a small hotel but it's very comfortable. A 3 minutes walk from the beautifull Palm Beach. Kimberly and Stephanie, the owners, are pleasant and are always ready to help you. They have done an incredible job with the recent renovation. The staff is also special and kind to us. We're clients of The Boardwalk... More
