For some of you, it might sound boring, but I have been back on Aruba for almost 3 weeks. Guess what, I stayed in the Boardwalk Hotel Aruba again. 5th stay within 3 years. Do I need to say anything else?

Boardwalk Small Hotel is a beautiful paradise! We loved every second of our time here. The casita was clean and inviting and the pool kept us fresh in the Aruba heat. Front desk staff was wonderful. We had a great time!!

My wife and I were in Aruba for our 10th anniversary. Based on reviews, we decided to stay at Boardwalk small hotel. I was a little hesitant going in since we weren't right on the ocean, but I did not need to worry! First, the hotel itself. It's set up as a series of small casitas. We had a one... More

Heaven on earth with wonderful staff. A place to truly unwind .. Every whim catered for. If you want calm with easy access to more lively this is a perfect choice. Loved having a bar b que facility as eating out in Aruba can be expensive.

Boardwalk is a boutique hotel. Very nice large rooms, well equiped. The garden with little swimmingpool is very beautiful. Beaches and restaurants nearby. Every day, but sunday, cleaning of the room and the entire property.

We knew when planning our trip to Aruba that we didn't want to stage at a large resort, but were somewhat apprehensive about choosing a smaller, less-known hotel. While we were confident based on the great reviews provided about the Boardwalk Hotel, our actual stay far exceeded our expectations! Boardwalk was the perfect fit for a quiet, relaxed vacation.

We were lucky enough to spend 12 nights at Boardwalk, and loved it from start to finish. We had Casita #6 which is right next to the pool, complete with its own patio, hammock and barbeque. Casita 6's lounge has windows on two sides of the lounge and was perfect for us (as a family of three). Being right next... More
