Another return trip to the Boardwalk and it just gets better and better. The casita has been beautifully maintained and was spotlessly cleaned each day. The pool and grounds are an oasis away from the busy beach area. Each day was spent on the perfectly refurbished stretch of beach, on the new furniture, cooler by our side. We couldn't have...

My third trip to Aruba and second stay at the Boardwalk. Love the quaint atmosphere and feeling like you are in your own private villa. Way more relaxing than the large hotels. Proximity to the beach cannot be beat.

Staying at this location allows you to experience conveniently everything the beach has to offer plus enjoy a "feel at home" stay in your house-like Casita. You can take a reasonably priced cab everywhere by simply making a free local call from your room. Cab will show up in minutes. Beach is a quick walk across the street to their...

Boardwalk is a small hotel about a 3 minute walk from the beach. Our unit was a one bedroom with a large living area with kitchen facilities. Air conditioning worked great and the rooms were very clean. We spent our entire three days there at the beach. Boardwalk has about 8 palapas of their own on the beach which are...

Beautiful base of exploration for the sights and adventures of Aruba. Helpful staff, great travel tips, and a lovely beach of its own. Ask for a casita in the inner garden rather than one that overlooks the road. We much preferred this quiet sanctuary to the hubbub of a beach resort.

We enjoyed our time at The Boardwalk Hotel Aruba. The casitas are well appointed, spotlessly clean and nestled privately within a lush, green garden. It was peaceful, quiet and convenient to the beach. The staff is professional and friendly including Lola and Dushi.

The Boardwalk is an excellent place to stay while in Aruba. The facility is clean and well managed. You are just a walk or cab away from all the island has to offer. We will definitely make The Boardwalk our hotel of choice when visiting again.
