The perfect place to stay if you prefer small hotels to high rises. But with the best of both worlds (as it's situated next to the Ritz Carlton...so you can get drinks and dine at the Ritz with a 20% discount card you get with your stay!) truly can't wait to return to this low key hideaway.

The twin sisters who now own this 14 bed hotel directly across from the beach have made made many updates.

The Boardwalk provides rest. You can easily reach the action but when you want to escape, you have the Boardwalk. Casita style of accomodations, service if you want it. Peaceful if you leave the news off the TV

My wife and I have been to the Boardwalk at least 4 times over the past few years. It offers the best of both worlds- right across the street from the beach, short walk, avoids the on-the-beach prices, the crowds, and the casitas are very comfortable. We do not like to eat out all the time, so the kitchen comes...

We loved our stay at Boardwalk Aruba. So clean and comfortable. Really felt tropical. Easy walk to the beach. The Boardwalk offers snorkel equipment and the mask and snorkel were great ,but we needed fins so we had to rent them. If you plan on snorkeling keep that in mind.

Perfect for us! Nice flat and friendly staff. Beautiful beach, just 200 meters away, with sun chairs and palapas. If you rent a car for a trip round the island, you can borrow chairs, masks and snorkels for free in the reception. Nice also with the "afternoon-punch" in the garden for all guests.
