We had an excellent stay at the Boardwalk Aruba, and have highly recommended it to our friends. It is extremely clean and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a quieter option, away from the typical resort scene, this is the perfect spot. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our second year staying at the Boardwalk and I have nothing but great things to say about it. In fact, I almost don't want to write this review for fear word will get out about this amazing hotel and lessen my chances for getting a room next year! Stephanie and Alice are amazing, as is the rest of the Boardwalk staff. We were so pleased with the experience last year that we invited our longtime friends to come along with us to experience it for themselves. It was their third time to Aruba and they were just as impressed as us. Having stayed in the high rise hotels on their previous visits they found it refreshing to stay in a place as beautiful and quaint as the Boardwalk, where the owners truly do make you feel like you're their only guest. Stephanie and Alice went above and beyond this trip. I chose Aruba to propose to my now fiancee. When I decided that I wanted to propose on a beach in Aruba I knew right away to choose the Boardwalk. From booking a special engagement dinner, to beautifully decorating our suite with flowers and rose pedals, they made this experience nothing short of amazing for the two of us. I can't say enough great things about this place, I recommend it to everyone who is considering Aruba as their vacation destination. The Boardwalk will always share a special place in our hearts, the memories we made here will last a lifetime. Thanks again for everything!

Sincerely,
Roger and Karen

From the very first moment, the warm welcome of Mareijke, the attention to every detail, the extra towels left in the room for Sunday (being the only day without housekeeping service), the delicious iced tea prepared for us, the treasure box of places to go, the free Wi-Fi, the delightful housekeeping ladies, and especially Stephanie and Kimberley the owners, who love to organise a special occasion their guests (such as the surprise birthday for my Luz), until the check-out farewell and assistance with airport info, boarding-pass printing, etc. made us feel at home plus a piece of paradise. The casita was very spacious, the guests very nice and well-behaved, even little children. They could use more wardrobe space and more parking space. The major drawback however is the lack of a restaurant on site. But, if you like to walk, you can find some good and very good restaurants in the vicinity. If you have a car, your choice of restaurants is unlimited. If you like to cook, the kitchen is very well equipped. And ... listen to ''Kimberly and Stephanie's suggestions re restaurants. They really know their island.

We arrived in Aruba very disappointed with a big hotel somewhere else and we were so relieved to finish our trip at the Boardwalk. We felt at home with a welfare in this " casita" equiped with all the utensils you need of kitchen and bathroom. Everything is spotless ... it was like being in the comfort of your own home, was a luxury indeed! The garden is beautiful, the accommodations spacious and extremely cozy and comfortable, everything ready to welcome people. The place is beautiful, the balcony is huge, the pool is good to rest after the beach and Stephanie, the owner, was super available to us, even before we arrived, telling us the options of stay, coffee, shopping at the supermarket to the fridge ... Thanks for everything , we recommend immensely ...

From the moment we met the adorable,beautiful,sweet and business savvy sister-owner/operators of the best little hotel in Aruba , I knew we were in for a wonderful new experience. Being owners of a Marriott timeshare in Aruba this was not our first time on the island, however this was our first time staying outside of our resort. We decided we just couldn't leave after a week and booked 3 more nights at the boardwalk. The lush gardens on the property transport you from Aruba's arid landscape to the feeling of a tropical one! The decor of the property inside and out should get them a Pinterest award, so resourceful and colorful and practical! They have books, snorkels, floats, chairs and coolers to offer you. "Treasure boxes" located in your room provide you with local tips on the best restaurants, beaches, places to watch the sunset and more! My favorite Moments were spent early morning & late evening relaxing in the hammock or teak furniture on our veranda enjoying the warm Arubian breeze peaceful and quiet with the occasional gecko or kitty passing by. I cannot wait to return, we plan on always extending out timeshare stays here at the boardwalk!

The Boardwalk hotel exceeded all of our expectations. We booked 3 casitas . We we're looking for a place where we're could stay with 13 members of our family . The casitas are very well decorated . Very comfortable. Impeccable. All the details are just right . The kitchen is well equipped . Although we arrived late everything was organized for us. Next morning we met the owners which helped us with everything . They booked for us all the reservations, through all our vacations. You get your beach chairs and towels from them which is perfect you can go to different beaches with your own gear at no cost. The hotel has a very nice garden and environment with enough privacy in the delicious porches for a gook breakfast , dining or for a night cap. I can not imagine in a hotel room with no contact with nature . The staff in general is very polite . I have already recommended this place to my several of my friends . They are coming to Aruba for some of the water sports and what a better place to be . I would definitely recommend this place .

My wife and I stayed at Boardwalk Hotel Aruba from March 18th till April 4th. We have been staying at boardwalk a few times already. We keep coming back because we always have a wonderful vacation there. The beautiful surroundings of the hotel combined with the hospitality of Kimberly and Stephanie truly create the ideal atmosphere for a relaxing holiday. I would really recommend it to my friends, who have in fact visited boardwalk in the past, where they have had a similar joyful experience. Boardwalk truly is a hidden gem on Aruba, which I wish for anyone to discover. We are looking forward to our next visit to Aruba and seeing the lovely sisters of Boardwalk again.
