Our stay in Boardwalk hotel provided the perfect base location for exploring Aruba. Its location close to Palm and Eagle beach was perfect for us as we did not want to spend all day on the beach but did make use of the facilities in the area. The casita was most comfortable and super clean. All of the staff were... More

The Boardwalk was for me the perfect Celebration to start off Retirement. I'm from a big city in a mid Winter deep freeze and I stayed only one week but it will be an unforgettable experience - a tropical island paradise. The Boardwalk has"Old World" charm with state-of-the-art modern luxurious facilities in their Casitas. Close by to beaches and stores.... More

The Boardwalk Hotel was amazing. My husband and I are very picky about our hotels. We tend to prefer smaller, more intimate hotels rather than the large chains. We don't really have one negative comment about any the property. It's clean, quiet and safe. The owners and staff have ensured that when you stay there, you really have your own... More

We found Boardwalk online. The recommendations were great and the website was charming so we booked it. There was some trepidation because we knew no one who had been there nor knew anything about it first hand. We were pleased beyond expectations and enjoyed everything about it. Our casita was our corner of paradise. Each casita is independent of the... More

My husband and I joined 4 other friends for a week in February. The hotel is very clean with large colourful rooms. Just a short walk away from the casinos and beach so we could enjoy peace and quiet if we so chose. Everyone was very helpful and friendly but it would have been nice if there was someone at...

My wife an I made our second trip to Boardwalk Hotel last week and again enjoyed our stay. We love the location because we travel to Aruba for windsurfing and it is only a short walk to Vela where we rent our windsurfing equipment. This year we went to the grocery store and stocked the fridge for the week. We... More

My husband and I stayed at the boardwalk for 8 nights, it is the cutest little Oasis. All units have a private garden area and spacious units. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The beach chairs and cooler was definitely a plus for our stay. The units had everything necessary to make our stay comfortable. The units are immaculately... More

This was only a visit to the property. We did not stay here. It is absolutely lovely. The very friendly lady at the front desk showed us a casita and it was spotless and very nicely decorated. It reminded me of a little oasis. Had a lovely pool. Would have given it an excellent except you have to walk 7... More

One of the best hotels we've ever stayed at: ideal for relaxing, clean, quiet, comfortable, well equipped, friendly, conveniently located... Definitely recommended, especially if you want to avoid the huge, busy and tacky hotels in the area. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. With their tips and recommendations alone we managed to organize our 5 days there... More

We recently spent 10 days at the Boardwalk and enjoyed our visit. It is located across the main highway from the Marriott and the Ritz Carlton at the western end of the hotel strip. The beaches are public so we had no problems finding nice places to snorkel or sunbathe. The hotel has an arrangement with a beach bar located... More
