We really enjoyed the Boardwalk Aruba. Because it's a small property, it felt very private. The pool area is small, but it was perfect. This hotel offers so much more than a larger resort property can. And the air conditioning works great too.

Just back from a great trip to Aruba and stayed at the Boardwalk. We really enjoyed it and it was a departure from the type of place we usually stay at i.e. bigger 5 star on the beach type places. We thought this place looked quirky cool and something different. It certainly was very quiet calm and serene with the... More

Our stay at Boardwalk was amazing! In fact, there are not enough words to describe this beautiful, tranquil paradise! We loved having our own Casita (#7) with all the amenities (full kitchen, private patio, plenty of living and sleeping areas). Everyone is so friendly & helpful with anything you need, (reservations, tips & suggestions on places to go, house cleaning,... More

Such a charming hotel - great alternative to the large chains that dominate the beach front. The grounds and rooms were beautiful. The pool is lovely and there are some really nice touches, such as the hammock and BBQ in each patio area.

Our room was fabulous at the Boardwalk Hotel. We had a 1 bedroom casita with a nice little kitchen and family room. It was great having a picnic table and hammock right outside our door with a very lush tropical environment with beautiful plants and trees. The location was fine too with a short walk to palm beach, and easy... More

Back to the Boardwalk; we think our sixth visit!? Each visit it only gets better! The casitas are absolutely gorgeous and equipped with everything one might need, including Aruba Aloe shampoos and soaps.

In my family's opinion, the Boardwalk Small Hotel is the best in Aruba. You have the Ritz-Carlton across the street, and while that is a beautiful hotel, you could be anywhere in the world when you are inside it. At Boardwalk, everything around you adds to the tropical island, Aruban experience. The grounds are immaculately kept, as are the interiors... More
