Best Accomodations

This was our second time staying at the boardwalk. The first trip was just my husband and myself and we loved it so much we returned this year with our good friends. We are not fans of resorts and humongous hotels of which there are plenty! This allows you to have a homey atmosphere, an outside area to sit outside and sip your coffee in the morning or enjoy the evening breeze. This year there was an added option of reserving a spot on Palm Beach for designated Boardwalk guests. Those are are within walking distance. When we visited other beach locations we could get chairs, snorkeling gear, and towels to take with us. We also appreciated the small cooler that was in our facility to use for our time there. This place has great staff who are willing to help with whatever your needs. Everything is spotless and bright! We will return to this spot!!

Cozy Convenience

There are many reasons to choose the high rise hotel zone when visiting Aruba. Fine and fun restaurants, shopping and beautiful beaches teaming with activities. But, if you are not a fan of 400 room hotels and taking elevators to the beach you should consider this hidden gem. Although it is NOT oceanfront you are literally across the street from the Ritz-Carlton and can enjoy a private casita for the price of a standard hotel room. You will be check to jowl with R-C guests on the beach under your palapa.

Board Hotel. Great staff, rooms, and location. They are across from the Ritz and the Marriot, and have beach access with beach huts between the two. Also have a discount card good at the Ritz. Can't say enough about the courteous staff and service. The Dutch were terrific and we will see you next year for a full 2 weeks!!

Best Overall Hotel Experience Ever!

My family and I have traveled extensively and have stayed at some great properties along the way. Without question, the experience we had at the Boardwalk Small Hotel was the best overall experience we have ever had. While the amenities at the hotel were first class and access to beaches and all the sites of Aruba were in easy reach, it was the friendly/family like environment at the Boardwalk that made our stay a true vacation. The staff were accommodating and extremely friendly. They bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. The casita layout in the old coconut plantation provided privacy and peace and quiet after a day of activities. Can't wait to return.

Great little hotel

What a great family vacation. Boardwalk is a lovely, well cared for, little hotel with an island vibe. We stayed in room 3 with our 3 boys: 10, 7, and 3 and ordered a rollaway bed. Thanks Alice for taking good care of us with the discount card for the Ritz and other local restaurants, novels, scuba gear, folding chairs and beach toys. We can't wait to come back. See you next year! Andrew.
