Nice people, well maintained property, close to everything, and just across the street from the beach. If you want instant access to a restaurant and bars, choose a beachside hotel, but if you like to have your own kitchen and a little privacy, not right in the middle of all the tourists, this is your place.

We stayed for a second time for one night while waiting for our timeshare. Once again beautifully kept, with adorable grounds. Ice tea on arrival. We locked ourselves out of a room and housekeeping showed up extremely fast to help us out.

High standard casitas in lush, tropical garden across the street from The Ritz Carlton. Extra bonus was the dedicated sun loungers on the beach, plus a 20% discount on F&B spend at the Ritz. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

We found the hotel very pleasant. With espacious "casitas" surrounded by a nice garden, where you can prepare your own food if you want. Beach is close and so is the action in case you want it. Staff is very nice and efficient. I do certainly recommend it to couples or to families

Aruba is beautiful. The Boardwalk Hotel encapsulates the Islands beauty in a relaxing tropical setting. The vibrant blue color accents are wonderful. The Casitas were comfortable and spacious for a family of 5. The beachside Palapas are very nice, though they require daily reservations at the front deak. During busy times the surrounding beach can be noisy. (it's between the...

Wonderful experience at Boardwalk. Everyone on staff there was friendly and helpful. The grounds feel very private and are beautifully maintained. Beach access was convenient. Being able to reserve a palapa everyday made our beach experience so pleasant. I would definitely return. Thanks to all the Boardwalk staff😎🌴.

You can almost drive right past it, nestled off a traffic circle in Palm Beach, but this gem of a hotel made a wonderful week in Aruba an outstanding one. First, let's stipulate that it's not for everyone. It has no doormen, no 24-hour concierge, no elevators, no casino, no tennis courts, no bars and no attitude. What it does...
