Boardwalk Vacation Retreat Aruba
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Loved the privacy of the casitas and the outdoor space. The wandering cats, giant crab and iguanas kept things interesting. Having the kitchen was great for us - we made breakfast every day, packed lunches for the beach and enjoyed some very tasty take away meals. Close walk to the beach and down to the busier area of palm beach if you want. The hammock got much use. Just lovely overall.
We stayed here for nine nights and had a wonderful time. All the staff without exception were friendly and helpful, our particular thanks to Alice on reception who we saw most. The cleaning staff and handymen were very hardworking and impressive sorting out anything promptly and efficiently. A lovely touch is that a jug of iced tea is left every day by the cleaning staff which was welcomed in the heat. Also the ground coffee sachets were topped up everyday. We shopped at Super Food catching a little white van at the bus stop over the road by the Marriott Hotel costing 2 dollars then a taxi back which was 11 dollars. The supermarket was amazing! Made Sainsburys look very boring on our return home! We were very happy to see that wine and beers were cheaper than in the US - approx 10 US dollars for a good bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. The Dutch influence was most notable with the huge array of cheeses on display - heaven for a veggie! Fruit and veg was also of excellent quality. We did not eat out much as we found restaurant prices high (obviously exchange rate is poor at present) so to have such a large array of foods to cook at the casita was great. The Boardwalk beach area is a few minutes walk away - we kept trying to take a photo of the two foot long iguana who crossed our path every morning when we left the Boardwalk but he was too quick for us! We swooned when we saw the beach - it was our first trip to the Caribbean and the colour of the sea was incredible. In summary the Boardwalk was everything we expected and more and we would highly recommend it. Alison and David Hewitt
Only one world to describe this hotel. Paradise. Everything was perfect, the staff was amazing. Me and my boyfriend will be coming back for the next 20+ years. We have found our slice of heaven. Thank you to all the staff for the making this vacation special. Clean, Friendly, quiet :)
This was our third consecutive stay at the Boardwalk. In a 2015 review I mentioned how I just need to know that our vacation will be relaxing, comfortable, and fun since I don't have a lot of vacation but need a lot of rest while I am away. The Boardwalk is perfect for our family, and the beauty of the grounds and clean, simple lines of the rooms make us all happy the minute we arrive. I am already trying to figure out when I can book next year's stay!
The Boardwalk is our favorite place to stay in Aruba - comfortable, clean, close to the windsurfing beach, and staffed by super-friendly multi-lingual people. We much prefer an apartment-style lodging to a hotel room - we don't cook much on vacation but it's great to have a kitchen for snacks and drinks.
