Forget all the big hotels this is the place to be. The staff is exceptional and kind, the casitas are spacious and so nicely decorated. There is a beautiful garden with pool and they even have their own palapa's at the beach!

We stayed for 5 nights in the Boardwalk. We had a lovely appartment in a garden setting. The appartment complex is a quite haven situated away from the busy Hotels at the Beach, but close enough for a short walk to the beach and to enjoy the restaurants there. Staff was very helpfull and friendly.

Hotel was great. Traveled w/family (2 adults, 2 kids). Hotel was ideal for us. Plenty of space to spread out, kitchen came in very handy for breakfast. Property was quiet and private. We had easy parking and were close to everything we needed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Boardwalk. We found the location convenient, casitas very well-laid out and staff very friendly & professional. If you're debating going with one of the bigger, established resorts for their "amenities" and access to activities, take a second look at Boardwalk because they have great recommendations for activities, beach chairs to borrow, snorkeling gear and...

We spent seven wonderful nights in Casita #22 at the Boardwalk Hotel over the 2016 Thanksgiving holiday. We arrived after the office had closed for the evening, but everything we needed to access our room was prepared and ready for us. We cannot say enough good things about the Boardwalk Hotel. The casita was delightfully decorated and extremely clean. The...

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 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...

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...

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.
