We stayed here for 8 days in August 2016 and had high hopes from all the positive reviews we read, and we were not disappointed in the least. in fact our expectations were exceeded. The room was very large, very comfortable, and the private patio was perfect. We spent most of our time either on the patio or sitting around... More

The Boardwalk was exactly what we were looking for and made every effort to make our trip great. Rooms were great and loved the setting. 5 minute walk to the beach was no problem at all for us. The Boardwalk provided the personal help you would not readily receive from the mega resorts on the island. This was our first... More

We loved our stay at the Boardwalk hotel. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and had a beautiful view. It was great to getaway from the normal all inclusive hotels on the beach. We really enjoyed the beach area that was for Boardwalk guests. It was nice being able to reserve a spot the day before....

Although we arrived late night, everything was in place and we easily found our way to our casita. Hotel is conveniently located near to the "high rise" hotels. One has to consider renting a car to explore the island and drive to the super market if you consider self catering. Yhere are however enough tour operators who would be happy... More

This was my fifth visit to Aruba and fifth time staying at this wonderful little hotel which is still the perfect place to relax while close enough to restaurants, movies, shopping and more by rental car/bus/taxi, and in many cases just by walking. As an added bonus, they now offer the option of reserving beach lounge chairs and a palapa... More

As newlyweds, this was the perfect hotel for our honeymoon. The Casitas were perfectly private. A mini home away from home. We made breakfast every morning. The touchscreen stove was perfect to cook with and clean afterwards. The staff had great service and met every need. We love Veronica and Diana! Our permanent Aruba Hotel!
