I am happy to report that the Boardwalk was as good as ever! We stayed there the week before Christmas and in every way the hotel was a special place. The Boardwalk has a laid back island/euro vibe. With bright colored walls alternating with fresh white paint, you wake to beautiful sunny Aruba mornings in a serene atmosphere. It is...

I don't even know where to start! Everything was amazing! I was looking at Aruba and places to stay for a surprise vacation for my husband and I. The surprise was for him. We had never traveled abroad together without staying at an all inclusive before, so staying someone else was anxiety provoking for me. I stumbled upon this gem,...

We really enjoyed Boardwalk Smalls. A great little boutique hotel, and not a single complaint! The location is far enough away from the big hotels that it's quiet, close enough to get to for restaurants. Really fabulous!

We stayed in a one bedroom casita for a week for our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier! It is a small, peaceful, and beautiful property and everyone who works there is so friendly and helpful. We rented a car which we felt was necessary because you are a little removed but that was the great part about it. There's...

Our family loved this hotel. It's close to all the action I the hotel area, but far enough away to escape all the crowds. We spent a lot of time on the patio listening to the wind in the palms. The staff is fabulous ... I can't say enough good things about this hotel.

I stayed at this amazing place during my first visit to Aruba and it was great. I was there for a week and I loved it. This place is a few steps away from the beach and far enough from the noise of the big hotels.
