We had such a great time staying at the boardwalk. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the pool has a shallow end that was great for our 3 year old daughter. We stayed in casita 23 and it was excellent. Eating out can be expensive on aruba so having a kitchen for breakfast and lunch made it much more affordable.... More

We were visiting Aruba for a wedding at the Marriott but decided to stay here since it was right across the street and offered a more cozy/quiet environment. As everyone here reports, the staff was extremely nice and friendly, which probably is a product of them only having 13 casitas on the property. If you need anything, you just have... More

This is a great place to go and get away from it all. The pool area is a tropical oasis on a mostly dessert island. The rooms show some age, but it is so nice to have a full kitchen and bbq outside with a large patio all your own. Even with a little age, the rooms are very clean... More

My wife and I found the Boardwalk when we were already on the island during Easter weekend. We were staying at another establishment on Eagle Beach but were horrified when the people camping on the beach for the holiday were blasting music until 3am and it would start up again around 8am. We took a chance on moving ourselves to... More

I went with two friends for a 40th birthday girls trip in March, 2010. We stayed in Casita 6 which was right next to the pool and jacuzzi. We enjoyed seeing the nice cats and loved our unique hotel. A refreshing change from the corporate ones....we walked to the beach (5min) and usually went to the Moomba Beach Club for... More

I've been coming to Aruba every year of my life and have always stayed with my family at the Boardwalk. I am 17 years old and I love it to death. The Boardwalk is literally my home away from home. The seperate houses (casitas) are really great and each house is bright and sunny. The walk to the beach is... More
