We have been visiting Aruba for 30 years and have always enjoyed it. The boardwalk has recently added thatch umbrellas at the beach as part of their offering. Excellent addition! This includes a 20% discount from the ritz beach service. Lovely!

The Boardwalk hotel in Aruba is now one of my favorite places. Clean, comfortable and friendly. The staff, especially Katinka and Alice are super nice and helpful with anything you might need. My daughters and I had a great time and we will be back!

We found Boardwalk Small Hotel online and decided to book it for a family vacation (husband, wife, two college age daughters) . The online description seemed appealing, it was more reasonably priced than the large hotels, and it was located within a short distance of the beach. It more than met our expectations; everything that we read online was accurate....

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.
