We stayed here for our honeymoon, which is not traditional, but we preferred the relaxing atmosphere. The grounds and facilities are marvelous. We loved our room, and we used the grill one night. They had great recommendations for things to do, and where to eat. We will definitely stay here again!!! Best place in Aruba

We stayed in Casita #6 for 5 days.....wish it was longer.....the setting of the hotel is tropical ( by means of landscaping as the island is dry) and serene...the décor is really beautiful and provides an island feel that you would not get in a boxy room in a highrise hotel.

Boardwalk Small Hotel: Good atmosphere, beautiful garden, complete casita, kindness throughout, excellent bed and air conditioning, quiet, about 500 meters from the beach. Wi-Fi somewhat limited, at least in the casita that I stayed. An excellent alternative to escape the cold and huge hotels on the beach. As the restaurants are expensive, cooking in the hotel is a good alternative...
