Just got back from a perfect 5-day stay at the Boardwalk in Aruba. This was the perfect option for us because we did not want to stay in an overcrowded high rise and fight for space on the beach each day. We rented a car and had the freedom to explore the island and check out all the different beaches and sights - from the popular Palm and Eagle beaches to the natural bridge, lighthouse, and more natural sights around the island.
The casitas here are a great value - we loved having a full kitchen to cook breakfast every morning, which we ate on our lovely shady porch while reading the newspaper provided each day. Then we used the cooler, towels and chairs that were available at the front desk to go on a new adventure each day. At night it was easy walking distance to the beach to watch the sunset and then to check out the many restaurants that were available within a short walk.
The casitas were perfect for our purposes and are clearly in the process of being upgraded as there are some items that look brand new and high end (for example the tvs) and a few things that could use a little upgrading still (the interior walls could use paint in some spots, the plumbing is old and the shower temperature fluctuates wildly if someone else is using water). Any minor inconveniences were definitely outweighed by the overall experience and comfort at the Boardwalk.
