We moved to the Boardwalk Hotel after staying in the high-rise hotel section for a triathlon race in which my husband participated. Leaving the more "touristy" section of Aruba and staying here was a lovely way to extend our trip to a relaxing and peaceful vacation. We loved the breakfast delivered to our casita (a must try if you stay!),... More

The hotel is very nice, but it is the owners and personnel, that makes it extra lovely. They gave me lots of good tips and helped to figure out how to spend the days. I also loved the size of the place. I'd rather spend my holiday in this small hotel than go to those immense hotels by the sea.... More

This place is truly "like the pictures" online. Clean, quiet and extremely welcoming. It's it's right down by the high-rises and it's literally a two-and-a-half minute walk to the most beautiful beach. I can't wait to go back! Thank you for making our 10th anniversary fantastic.

The hotel is very well appointed and comfortable. We liked the outside seating area and ended up having a few meals there. The privacy that the hotel affords was much appreciated, especially since we preferred to be away from casino crowds and just wanted to enjoy the island. Would definitely recommend.
