Wonderful Gem!

My husband and I visited Aruba for the first time and chose this beautiful hotel and it did not disappoint. The staff is friendly, the casitas are cozy and clean, the pool was perfect too. Loved everything about it, down to 'dushi' the cat. Thanks for making our vacation wonderful!

Fun vacation!!!! Beautiful beach!

My mom and I came here for a nice lazy beach vacation. We were very pleased with this little hotel! The staff were very accommodating and friendly from the moment we arrived. Once we arrived, our room wasnt ready yet, and we were exhausted from a long journey. Alice at the front desk was more than willing to drop everything and accomodate us. She offered us a free botttle of wine, and gave us a discount card for the inconvenience, and brought all of our things down to our room for us! She went above and beyond. We were very impressed with this hotel. We even tried to stay an extra day here but couldnt find an available flight for the next day :( Will definitely return!!!!

Great Hotel!

Could not have asked for anything better! First time to Aruba and didnt want to stay at a chain hotel. Was so happy we stayed here. Staff was so friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay again. Rate it a 10!

A little bit of paradise

We have stayed at Boardwalk twice. The first time we went, we decided that Aruba and Boardwalk would be our new vacation destination. The first time, it was just my husband and me. We stayed in a one bedroom casita, which was just perfect for the two of us. The living room and kitchen make it feel more like home than a hotel, and you can make your own meals instead of eating at a restaraunt for every meal.The last trip, which we just got back from, we took the entire family. We got a two bedroom casita, and it was great for our kids to have a place to hang out when we weren't on the beach or in the pool. They loved it, and my four year old cried when we left. :-( We have to go back next year, I guess. :-)

Girls Getaway

I went for a girls' weekend trip, 4 nights, 5 days. The location is directly across the street from the Ritz and private beach access was a short walk away. The food and beverage service from the Ritz (which comes with a discount when you present your Boardwalk Card) was great. You didn't have to leave the shade of your palapa for an icy drink or a meal. We also received a significant discount on our spa service from the Ritz. Our casita was very clean, including our kitchen. The only thing that might be a drawback for some people is there are two cats who call the hotel home. The cats could be found on our porch at various times during the day, and at times were sprawled out on our patio table. The hotel provides free beach chairs, a cooler, snorkel equipment and beach towels. You can take the items with you to any beach on the island. It was nice to have a cooler at our disposal. There is construction going on around the hotel. Be sure to ask about the current state of work when you book. That might be an issue for some people. The hotel grounds were charming. The pool was small but very refreshing. If I return to Aruba, I will most definitely book a casita at Boardwalk.
