A lovely 3 night getaway to celebrate my wife's birthday. We rented a jeep through the hotel (with Value, who met us at the airport), although you could have a perfectly lovely time at the hotel and the bars/restaurants that are within walking distance. If the hotel was actually *on* the beach, then I would likely still be there, refusing... More

We have stayed here for 9 nights in March '15. For the 1-st morning we had ordered the breakfast from the hotel. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed it outside at our terrace. The service of the staff of the hotel is excellent. We checked out on a Sunday and the staff organized that we could take a shower... More

We had a great time in Aruba! We loved that the hotel was so close to restaurants and shopping - every morning we took a morning stroll on the beach to our favorite coffee shop. It is less than a mile to the nearest shops and restaurants and we found it was much easier to walk rather than hunt for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay at the Boardwalk, an oasis of green palms in this arid island. The casita (#2) is nicely furnished, the shower had great pressure, the kitchen was modern and came with necessities, the hammock on the patio was pure heaven. This is the best for those who prefer an intimate boutique experience over the... More

Very nice, clean unit. The grounds have a nice tropical feel. We stayed in the studio casita. It was just two of us. It was small, but sufficient. The staff was very pleasant and eager to help. The hotel is a great place to stay that is a little more private and quiet than the chain hotels. You also have... More

Boardwalk Aruba was exactly what we were looking for... a very nice, well maintained, small hotel that was separated from the main High Rise hotel area. We took a walk down Palm Beach which is located a mere two to three minutes away from hotel on our first day, and never went back. Not that it wasn't nice, but we... More

We stayed in Casita no 2 which was beautifully decorated ,with large living room with litttle kitchen, fully equipped. A large bedroom and large bathroom with... More

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.
