The best part of our vacation was our stay here! My girls (15 and 12) loved having their own private oasis and pool! My daughter felt right at home still caring for a feline --one of the resident kitties:) Perfect stay!!

We had a great time. Room was what we needed, staff was unimposing and friendly. Close to the beach and restaurants. Will stay there again. Pool is a nice touch as well. Kept clean and neat. And it will be bigger next time we visit.

Boardwalk is a very different experience from the high rise hotels and resorts right on the beach. In my opinion, this is a good thing. It is so quiet and so peaceful. Because of the way the grounds are set up, you feel like you're in your own little oasis. There are trees and flowers and foliage and lots of...

We booked our Aruba trip at the last minute. And because it was spring break, a lot of the bigger resorts (that we would normally have opted for) are booked or at least not showing up on those hotel search engines. I came across a review on here for Boardwalk and glad I did! We had a 1 bedroom casita....

Lovely hotel; definitely recommend renting a car to access restaurants and shops; as far as properties go, would recommend the Boardwalk over any of the larger sanitized resorts. Access to best part of beach offered.
