Everything about this hotel was perfect. Our casita was spotless and very spacious. Close enough to town but far enough to feel away from all the touristy resorts. The grounds were impeccably maintained. And the hammock on our balcony was such a treat to come home to and relax in after an "exhausting" day at the beach. I will definitely... More

We had a perfect vacation, couldn't be better. The location is close too the beach, but it was very peacefully. The owners and staff are all very nice people and the service was the best! If we're visit Aruba again, then we stay at the Boardwalk hotel for sure!!

We both loved the Boardwalk, a perfect place for our Honeymoon. We stayed in Casita No. 4, which was the only detached Casita, with our own patio and double hammock, it was perfect. We loved sharing our patio with various Lizards, a crab and a cat :-). The A/C was great and worked well (which is pretty essential). Our Casita... More

I can only agree with most other reviews that this is an amazing place far exceeding our expectations. Especially comparing this small cozy family run Hotel with the large high rise beach front hotels with its unpersonal atmospheres of "do-not-do-this-and-that signs", this is probably the nicest place to stay in Aruba. We came to Aruba for Kitesurfing. The Boardwalk is... More

A great place to getaway- quiet, friendly and very clean. Almost like home away from home, the place is just what I needed. Genuinely thoughtful owners and staff make the difference. Thanks for a great stay and excellent hospitality!

Searching for the perfect Caribbean experience that is tropical, calm, spacious, seconds from the beach and affordable?? Then why stay at a name brand hotel with regular hotel amenities you can get at home? Try one of the individual Casitas at Boardwalk! Each casita had it's own colorful Caribbean flavor, with an outdoor space and a private hammock! We got... More

My wife and I have been to Aruba before but for our 10 yr anniv. we wanted somewhere quiet & romantic & still be near the beach. The boardwalk delivered beyond my expectation. I can't wait to get back to that hammock!

I took my son and 3 of his friends on a special 'graduation present' trip to Aruba and the Boardwalk turned out to be the perfect place to stay! We had a fantastic trip and the Boardwalk was a big part of that. The ladies who run the hotel are so friendly and helpful! All the service was excellent during... More

Loved it! The Breakfast homemade bread was amazing! Our casita was comfortable, immaculate clean and extra inviting. Having access to a refrigerator to store drinks, beers and juice to take to the beach was a plus. My favorite relaxing place was the Hammock by our own private courtyard....I still can feel the Caribbean breeze...it was just lovely. For anyone trying... More

I am in love with Boardwalk Hotel Aruba -- from the moment you step into the lush palm tree foliage, you feel like you have left the noise of the world altogether; all you hear is the rustle of the palm trees. Beautifully designed Casita #1 is built for comfort, with clean and bright island colors and original artwork. Sparkling... More
