The Boardwalk Small Hotel was the perfect place for our week-long vacation. It is, as its name suggests, a small hotel. In that sense, it is not for everyone - but it's perfect in two circumstances. One is if you want a place cheaper than the big chains and still close to the high-rise hotel tourist mecca. You can walk... More

The wifi didn't work in the bedroom and the people above us made noise moving furniture, but otherwise the place was perfect! 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach, very spacious room, friendly staff, free rental of snorkelling gear, it was an awesome place!

This is a total gem just off the beaten path. The loveliness of the immediate grounds and cleanliness and charm of the casitas are wonderful. Everything about the room and front desk the service is beyond reproach. However, if you are like me and enjoy the freshness of a pool as an alternative to the beach, you may be disappointed....

The Boardwalk Hotel was a quaint little place. Great space and quiet. Good location to get away from it all and so close to everything if you choose not to. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I will tell others about how nice it was.😊

Everything about our stay at Boardwalk Hotel was excellent. Clean spacious accommodations, well-maintained grounds and visibly pleasant lay-out. Very helpful owners/staff. Convenient to the Hotel Beaches but also easy to commute by car or taxi to the other public beaches. I recommend renting a car.

My husband & I visited Aruba for our 10 year wedding anniversary - first time to the island. We are not the "big chain hotel" types. I found the Boardwalk Hotel on Trip Advisor when I was browsing all of the options for places to stay. The reason I chose the hotel was because each room (casita) has it's own... More

This Hotel is perfectly located near the big resorts and gave us a feeling of seclusion from the party/tourist feel of the big resorts while still being super close to walk to. The hotel has beautiful tropical landscaping and has nicely decorated and spacious casitas. There was cold, fruity ice tea made for us in the fridge which was a... More

We were in Aruba for 2 weeks & stayed at the Boardwalk for 1 of those weeks. I wish they would have been available our entire stay because I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! It was such a lovely place & we enjoyed our stayed a lot! It was very pretty & clean. The staff was wonderful! Our 2... More

I love this place, even more than Belgian tourists love man-capris, sandals with socks, and really tiny sunglasses! Seriously though- the Hosts, Service, Amenities, Rooms, and Beds are all outstanding! I would stay again in a heartbeat.

First impression as we drove up was that this could have been the biggest mistake ever, but turned out quite the opposite. We especially liked the big patio with the hammock, also the walk in showers were a big hit with my two daughters. I highly recommend the classic breakfast delivery at least once. It was wonderful.
