If you are looking for a wonderful place at Aruba, I can recommend the Boardwalk. Beautiful location, very intimate, wonderful garden. The casita is very spacious with kitchenette and livingroom, separate bathroom and bedroom. All recently renovated in lovely, warm, lively colours giving you a non stop holiday feeling. All very tidy and great staff taking care of your casita... More

This is the perfect place to stay, if you plan on traveling to Aruba. It is a small hotel with all the conveniences of home. You have a kitchenette, so you don't have to worry about spending so much money going out to eat all the time. It is located very close to the nicest beaches on the island. There... More

"The reviews sound too good to be true," I said to my son before leaving for Aruba. Rest assured that is not the case! From the moment you pull in the driveway you feel relaxed and know you made the right decision. We had a wonderful stay at Boardwalk Small Hotel. The casita was very comfortable, super clean and the... More

10th time Aruba and 10th time The Aruba Boardwalk. Very friendly staff and splendid accommodations. Our renewed casita no.6 was even more beautiful as before. Beautiful colors that match the amazing garden and lovely pool. We will never book anything else when we visit Aruba. As soon as we can book our flights, we'll book our 2015 trip to the... More

We stayed at the Boardwalk hotel for four nights; it was our first time on the island. The hotel matches the pictures and descriptions advertised on their website. The owners and employees were very kind and went out of their way to help us in every way possible! In fact, they send a wonderful E-portfolio of hand-picked activities and must-dos... More

Hospitality plus beach access plus Ritz right on the beach for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The hotel provides chairs and beach access close by, but we found the Ritz to be best all around for meals, way more attractively priced than we would have guessed. So our take was - avoid the Ritz and Marriott room prices but get the... More

We enjoyed our first stay at The Boardwalk last year we couldn't wait to come back and we weren't disappointed. This year we stayed our first night in a single bedroom casita and then moved to a two bedroom. We were thinking this might be a little bit of an inconvenience but the staff at The Boardwalk moved all of... More

We could not have asked for a better getaway. Awesome staff and their recommendations were spot on for what we asked. This was a 25th anniversary trip and we have great memories to take away. Wonderful!
