“The most relaxing spot on the island”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A wonderful hotel with friendly and helpful staff and easily the best location for relaxation. We used the pool regularly as well as our patio and hammock and that honestly made the vacation for us. The casitas and space are inviting and quiet and it was such relief not to be crammed in to a small standard looking hotel room. Felt like a home with a beautiful garden surrounding us.

If you don't want to deal with the crowds of the high rise hotels you'll like this place. The rooms are nice and although the pool is small most of the time you'll have it to yourself. The Boardwalk hotel is not on the beach but it's a short walk to the beach. It's also a 3 min. drive from a great uncrowded Arashi beach. This is a better choice than the beaches in front of the high rise hotels.

Room Tip: We stayed in Casita 11.

We had an amazing experience at the Boardwalk hotel where we spent almost a week during the month of May. The owners were the most amazing and friendly hosts who made it for an unforgettable experience. Gave us all the great secrets of the islands, in terms of food, beaches and activities. We shall return!!!

Awesome hotel!
So beatiful! Staying in a small house instead of a hotel room was the best thing ever! Their "casitas" are really nice and confortable!
Totally recommended! Much better than a big hotel

I've stayed at most of the big brand resorts and they all have their benefits (lobby bar, room service, points for future stays, etc) but I recently had a "real" Aruba experience at The Boardwalk and it was certainly a different view of this happy island.

The property is on an old coconut plantation and is surrounded by individual casitas that are basically self-contained villas with kitchens, patio and everything else you could need. But, the best part are the two sisters that own the property. Kimberly and Stephanie have created an environment that is casual, fun, artistic, relaxing and beautiful. You can check the "Treasure Box" to find something great to do every day or, just hang by the pool. The hammocks all around the property are a great place to read a book or look up at the trees.

I will certainly be back to the Boardwalk!

Room Tip: Honeymooners should get the casita in their video that shows the couple in the hammock.
