It was our first time in Aruba, and we are so glad we chose this hotel – really enjoyed our stay! Hotel location is perfect – just a few mins away from the beach where you can reserve your chairs and umbrella. Room was great and spotless with outdoor patio with a grill and hammock – we felt like a home away from home! Also loved the vibrant colors and a lush garden and the pool area!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Boardwalk Hotel. The beach is a short walk away, and the palapa reservation is very convenient. Our casita was very spacious, and we really loved the complimentary juice every day. Staff told us about some mini sub cozumel tours for our family. We spent many nights in our private patio enjoying our BBQ pit. Couldn’t have been more perfect. We will be back very soon!
We stayed at Boardwalk last fall (Oct 18) and really enjoyed it. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, and we spent many happy hours on our patio as well. The beach was a short walk across the highway at a roundabout. It was very convenient to have private umbrellas and chairs to reserve while utilizing the Ritz’s food & drink service. Cheers, Boardwalk, we’ll be back!
We’ve stayed in plenty of large chain hotels, and they are all pretty much the same. Sure, they are beautiful, but we were looking for something unique and different. Boardwalk fit the bill!
Every casita being unique and the staff knowing us by name, greeting us with fresh lemonade, they made us feel at home. The casitas came fully loaded and had the option to stay in and drink wine on the balcony, maybe even cook up a romantic late night dinner. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you again, Boardwalk Hotel and staff.
The beach is about a 6-8 min walk (with kids), and relatively quiet. The water was calm, and you can wade out pretty far before it gets deep, which again was great for the kids. There are also some activities very accessible on the beach if you are looking for something to do other than swim and play in the sand.
We traveled there with some other family members who were staying in separate casitas, so our children enjoyed having a little bit of freedom roaming between all 3. It was small enough that we felt comfortable letting them do so, yet again, the lush landscape gave you privacy. The staff and owners were friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I would highly recommend it if you are traveling with children or with a small group. Great alternative to the hustle and bustle of the larger hotels and the confinement of being stuck in one room.
