Just got back from a week at Boardwalk with my family, and it was perfect! The grounds and pools are wonderful and constantly being tended to, the room was stylish but also comfortable, and the location couldn’t be better, well I guess if it was on the beach, but then they would charge more. We had dinner at the Ritz on night and wandered around and honestly preferred Boardwalk. Can’t wait to go back!

This was our first visit to Aruba but have stayed at several islands. Boardwalk was by far one of the most enjoyable resorts we have stayed at. So many thoughtful details, very nicely updated. Cozy, private, really beautiful walking through the property. You do have to cross the street to the beach but it is an easy walk. No issue at any time finding seating at pools or the beach. We never needed to reserve anything. Super clean rooms. Staff was so friendly. Eduardo's on site were some of the best meals we had on an island with an insane amount of dining options. Only suggestions are coffee provided in room was very weak. Eduardo's coffee was much better. Mattress was a little hard for us but we are mattress snobs.

We will cherish our stay at Boardwalk. We enjoyed walking along the boardwalk, through the grounds and visiting the pools, Eduardo's, the gym and across the street to the beautiful beach. The casita, the environment, the food, all combined to make this a welcoming and much needed time to connect and relax with family.

We have been staying at Boardwalk for many years. It's a beautiful property, with super friendly people providing various services. Each and every time our Casita is spotless, as is the whole property. An added bonus is that we are supporting a local business. We highly recommend Boardwalk.

I've been coming to Aruba for 30 years now and this hotel is Aruba's best kept secret! If your looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation, free from the load music at the high rise hotels this is your place. First lets start by saying the grounds of the resort are breathtaking! The color of the casitas are beautiful. Never has it been so easy to get a palapa on the beach, if you have ever stayed at any of the high rises you know the struggle! Who wants to get up at 5am to fight for a sport on the beach!?! I will be back!

The Boardwalk is so lovely! The rooms and the grounds are immaculate, food from Eduardo’s is excellent and great palapa location on the beach. Excellent quiet location for a great sleep, and the staff is really friendly and helpful.

Third time back, because it is such a beautiful and tranquil place to recharge. The casitas are spacious and comfortable, beautifully decorated; The patio was my favourite "room". I loved the coffee mornings listening to the wind and birds chirping all around, the yoga sessions or the bubbles evenings, relaxing in the hammack or enjoying a freshly made barbeque. Everyone representing the staff is very friendly and making the guests feel like home. The beach has a great location on the island, having very shallow and calm water; safe for babies and children. An added bonus, the Vela Sports rental discount and meal discount at Ritz for Boardwalk Guests.

I was hesitating if writing or not a review, because I always review the places I visited. But I felt so upset and disappointed about the customer service that I decided to share my experience. I sent an email a few months ago asking if it was possible to book a room for two adults and two young kids. No one ever replied to me. Then I decided to ask through a couple of trusted travel agencies and they too found it difficult to understand the children policy and just replied to me that it was not possible for us to book in this hotel. Looking at their rooms they seemed quite large and I never found specified that children were not allowed. In many occasions we have shared very small rooms so I don’t understand why they didn’t want to accommodate us. It is clear to me that they don’t want children or families. I can understand their reasons as kids might actually be vey noisy but then they should mark the hotel as “Adults Only”. What I find rather rude is not receiving a reply. They could simply dare to reply to me or the agencies giving a proper explanation.
