Sassy interior, beautiful gardens, nice pool, and a front desk hostess that guides you to the details of the island! Located steps away from the Mika hotels and in a quiet little corner close to all the major attractions thank you boardwalk :-)

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel but the pool could be better maintained. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. Very private and relaxing place to stay. Conveniently located for the beach. Very happy overall.

I love this place! Katinka is the best - so helpful! I love the cats Dushi and Lola. Dushi was my pal each morning for coffee. The rooms were clean and spacious. I love the patio where I relaxed in the mornings. You are right by strip of high rises but you are in your own little quiet spot.

My sister snd I stayed at this beautiful property for 5 nights at the end of March 2015. We had excellent communication with Katinka and Stephany prior to our visit and were extremely happy to find out that all my questions to have quiet room, close to cats, were answered. We stayed in casita 23. Upon arrival, it felt like... More

Even though this was my first time in Aruba I felt like I was coming home when I opened the door to my casita. My entire experience at Boardwalk Hotel was completely lovely. Clean inside and out. Amazing landscaping. Semi-private (landscaped to practically be private) outdoor space at each casita. Gracious hosts. I will definitely be back!

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.
