“Best kite surf spot!”
Reviewed June 8, 2011

I stayed at the boardwalk for 5 days and took kite surf lessons at Vela/Dare to fly with Pascal and had a great time. I would definitely recommend him as a instructor. The Boardwalk also exceeded my expectations. Super chill place and great service! Thanks again everyone!

The Boardwalk offers a wonderfully different experience in visiting Aruba. A spacious room with sitting area, kitchen and separate bathroom near a small, warm pool away from the standard hotels. The owners and staff of the Boardwalk have become my friends over the past many years and seeing them is part of the magic of our visits. They will assist you with any needs you may have and often offer special insight to places to see, restaurants or happenings on the island. The Boardwalk makes your visit that much more special.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Wonderful surprise oasis!!! Kimberly, Martin, and Stephanie were wonderful and most helpful with everything. Housekeeping outstanding! Wacky Wahoo is the best restaurant. Would advise renting a car. Beautiful snorkeling literally 5 minutes. Beach accommodations pleasant and Mambo very close offering food and drinks. We are excited to return to Aruba and will stay at Boardwalk again. Quiet, and very accommodating. The benefit of a kitchen and outside area can not be underestimated after a day at the beach, before dinner, and in the morning. We await our return!!!

Room Tip: Casista 8 was great for us with two 22 year olds.

We couldn't have been happier, the suite was terrific as were Martjin and Kimberley. the cats made us feel more at home. I would recommend this retreat to anyone....great for family or just a romatic twosome. Very private, close to the beach and shopping. Couldn't possible have asked for more.

Room Tip: Take a second floor suite, great view, quiet

This was our second time at the Boardwalk in as many years. It is a great place, cozy, friendly atmosphere, quiet and just a short distance from the beach.
