From the moment we arrived, it felt like being in a private lush garden filled with birds and flowers. The hammocks and outside areas are so romantic and bright and private. We breakfasted on the veranda and LOVED the glass walk-in shower. You can get anything you need to make your beach trip awesome. Each casita has a cooler and we got beach chairs to take to far off beaches. Palm beach in walking distance is beautiful and the palapas offered relieving shade. The staff are so kind and helpful. We stayed at another place after this one and missed Boardwalk immensely. It is a true treasure of the island, and I highly recommend it.

My adult daughter and I stayed in a 1-bedroom casita for 4 nights. We loved the location, the pretty decor and lush gardens and pool, the cats, and the friendly staff. Much homier than the giant hotel complexes nearby, but with access to all the activities and beaches. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Cute place but for the price lots of little things that would keep me from recommending this property. We are two senior age women and were given a cute room on the second floor no effort was made to carry our luggage up the stairs, dishes cleaned but not dryed and put away. Don't go to the beach early or stay late if you want clean beach towels. The office is only open from 9-5 to get new towels. If you are 3 minutes late to the beach they will give your chairs away. We told management and the response was oh well you were not there by 10:30. Office personnel seemed bothered anytime we came in to the office. Not the level of service you would expect for the price of the room.

We stayed at the Boardwalk for one week from March 17-March 24. We were very warmly welcomed by Alice. She is lovely, always pleasant and helpful! My boyfriend and I take a trip to the Carribean every year, going to a different place each time. This tradition may come to an end now that we found this little oasis on Aruba. It was so nice to have a quiet retreat of our very own when we wanted to unwind and relax after a long day of relaxing in the sun. The casita was spacious and clean.
Sure, you can go to a big name property on the beach, but if you want to really get away from it all, the Boardwalk can't be beat.
Aruba is a wonderful island, where you can do as much or as little as you desire. Everyone we interacted with, on and off the property were wonderful- warm and welcoming.
We will return, and this is the only hotel we would even consider. Oh, and we miss the resident cat, Dushi, who hung out with us on a few nights.

Wow what a great hotel. Me and my husband came here for our honeymoon. We are so glad we booked here. Very quiet and comfortable hotel. Not like the other hotels with all the hustle and full of people.The rooms were very nice and comfortable. Very big rooms and nice big bathroom. The staff was amazing. The girls who cleaned our room where very polite and nice. The girls at the front desk where friendly and helpful. Every time we seen the maintenance man he said hello and very friendly. We got the romance package. They gave us breakfast one morning and it was awesome. When we first got there we had a little sign on our bed. Which was very nice. We brought a breakfast for another morning and we wished we got it every morning. I would highly recommended this hotel.
