Ahhhhhh, Aruba!!!! I'd always heard of this perfect paradise in the Dutch Caribbean but never had the opportunity to visit - until now! And boy oh boy - it was well worth the wait...!! :) My priority when booking accommodation was to avoid the mainstream corporate chains (which dominate the foreshore) and try to find boutique accommodation on/near the beach...

I would choose boardwalk in a heart beat. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous and clean. Have our own private balcony i=with a bbq and hammock. They have a nice private area on the beach. The customer service is amazing and accommodating. Highly recommend this property

What a great place to stay! I have to admit that based on the website and some of the reviews I thought this place might be more suitable for couples and was a bit worried about brining my family along... fortunately I was wrong. Lots of families with kids were staying at the Boardwalk (I was traveling with 3 kids...

The best part of our vacation was our stay here! My girls (15 and 12) loved having their own private oasis and pool! My daughter felt right at home still caring for a feline --one of the resident kitties:) Perfect stay!!

We had a great time. Room was what we needed, staff was unimposing and friendly. Close to the beach and restaurants. Will stay there again. Pool is a nice touch as well. Kept clean and neat. And it will be bigger next time we visit.

We just got back from a spring break stay at Boardwalk Hotel Aruba. Our casita was perfect for a family of 5 - two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living area, kitchen and private patio with a table and hammock. The service was great, the special touches like locally made soap and shampoos as well as the recommendations made by the owners...

We were very fortunate to get a last minute booking in this beautiful small hotel. Stephanie, Kimberly and the staff are very accommodating, a wealth of local knowledge and a pleasure to talk to. The hotel is kept impeccably clean, and you feel like you're in your own little corner of paradise while staying here. The lush gardens and pool...

Boardwalk is a very different experience from the high rise hotels and resorts right on the beach. In my opinion, this is a good thing. It is so quiet and so peaceful. Because of the way the grounds are set up, you feel like you're in your own little oasis. There are trees and flowers and foliage and lots of...

We booked our Aruba trip at the last minute. And because it was spring break, a lot of the bigger resorts (that we would normally have opted for) are booked or at least not showing up on those hotel search engines. I came across a review on here for Boardwalk and glad I did! We had a 1 bedroom casita....
