There is a reason this place is ranked #2 right now, it's the little hidden gem of Aruba. If you want to be in the high rise area without staying in the high rise hotels and paying their rates, this is the place for you. Our casita was so adorable with its bright colors and island décor. It was also... More

Having decided that we wanted to stay in the Palm Beach area of Aruba we weren't that keen in staying in one of the big hotel complexes and were delighted when we found the Boardwalk whilst searching on TripAdvisor. It was everything that we hoped for and better...the casita was beautiful, spacious and airy, spotlessly clean and the outside seating... More

I'm in love with Aruba and boardwalk! Our casita was the cuttest thing ever! Walking distance to the beach, great pool, beautiful garden, everything perfect! Very romantic, clean, with a lovely interior design.

The Boardwalk Small Hotel was everything we expected it to be and even more. We loved the quiet setting - so relaxing. Our casita was immaculate and had so many nice touches like a fragrance night light, tea and cold water in the fridge on arrival, wonderful aloe toiletries - I could go on and on. We did not want...

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
