Great location. Super clean and plenty of space for family of 4 in 2 bdrm casita. Everyone was friendly and can't wait to go back! Awesome place. Would recommend renting a car. Beaches on north end of Aruba were the best!

Checked into Boardwalk Hotel across the street from The ritz. This is flat out the nicest property i have stay in on the Island, other then Oceania for when i want that kind of big place with hugh pools experience. I was is a one bedroom one bath that was hugh. High ceiling and Island modern. The bathroom was killer with a separate sink outside of it, I like being able to take a shower without friends needed to get in for the mirror and sink when we are getting ready to go out. The unit had everything i needed but i never shopped to eat in the unit. If i was staying with some people i probably would have. The kitchen was beautiful and having a some ice water and ice tea prepared in the fridge was a nice touch and appreciated after coming off the beach at check in. I felt like i was on an Island inside the Island. It's really peaceful with beautiful grounds and pool. I could walk right across to The Ritz if i wanted a drink at their lobby bar. My friends were still at The Ritz so i met them for dinner one night. They came over to Boardwalk for a drink on the patio and both said they were booking there for their winter trip back. All the doors opened up to the patio so i never had to turn the AC on unless i was sleeping, especially with the ceiling fans going. I hate to use AC especially after the winter on the east coast. I want to feel like I'm outside all the time. They had a deal with Moomba beach club which gave us the perfect beach front option with all the amenities without it costing a dime. Boardwalk felt like it's own Island within the Island. I recommended it to clients when i came home and they loved it as well. It was the cleanest property i have ever stayed in. They even had a cooler for the beach and free snorkel equipment. The staff had everything mapped out in this little box in the villa. I felt like i didn't have to think about what to do because they kind of had it covered. The location is perfect for hitting local beaches or just walking across the street to some of the best resort beaches on the Island. I walked over to Mariott Stellaris one night to hit their casino which was convenient, only took 3 minutes. We went back there another night for drinks in their lobby bar. It's easy to walk to the high-rise resorts and Palm Beach mall. When i checked out i told the girl at the desk that if i could live on the Island i want to live in unit 1! lol.

Room Tip: Loved unit one!

This was our first trip to Aruba and Stephanie and Kimberly, the owners of the Boardwalk Hotel Aruba, have that knack to make you feel like you've come home. This isn't a glitzy hotel on the beach where staff bring you drinks around the pool. But it is a simple island oasis with soothing and bright colors, lush vegetation, comfortable private casitas and patios with BBQ grills, a delightful pool and huge palapa and guests from around the world who keep coming back. Stephanie and Kimberly went out of their way to make sure we had a great 15th wedding anniversary, surprising us with a bottle of wine and small gift, personally shopping for a bouquet of island flowers for my husband to give me and making personal reservations at the most wonderful Yumanja restaurant with complimentary mojitos from the hotel. A car is necessary if you want to do more than walk across the highway to the beach every day. When we return to Aruba, we most definitely will choose the Boardwalk again as our home away from home.

This was my first time in Aruba and I'm glad to say that the Boardwalk Hotel met all my expectations. I slept in two different casitas during my staying and they were both lovely, comfortable and clean. I loved the garden!

The hotel is close to shops and restaurants in Palm Beach and driving to Eagle Beach only takes a few minutes. Lots of parking place at the hotel and most of the time in the shade.

Don't miss the chance to meet the hotel owners (Stephanie and Kimberly) and the other guests at the weekly rum punch event by the pool Patio!

Room Tip: I loved casita 23: 2nd floor, with high ceilings and facing the pool, though I'm a light sleeper...

Hotel stay 7/23/14-7/30/14
This was our third visit to Aruba, previous two times have stayed at a high-hotel. For this visit we decided to stay at the Boardwalk Hotel after reading all the positive reviews about the hotel and a desire to try for a different Aruba experience. The Boardwalk Hotel exceeded our expectations. To start , the casita was beautiful, bright, and cheerful. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms (loved the shower), living room, and kitchen with more than enough room for 5 people. What we loved the most was the beautiful patio area with a large table and hammock. We used the patio area every morning for coffee and every evening for cocktails. The hotel grounds were tropical-like and well-maintained.
The Boardwalk staff were every welcoming. We loved the rum punch party on Thursday night. What a great way to meet everyone.
Thank you for our wonderful Boardwalk Aruba experience. We will be back next year!

If you are looking for a wonderful place at Aruba, I can recommend the Boardwalk. Beautiful location, very intimate, wonderful garden.
The casita is very spacious with kitchenette and livingroom, separate bathroom and bedroom. All recently renovated in lovely, warm, lively colours giving you a non stop holiday feeling.
All very tidy and great staff taking care of your casita even doing your dishes.

Multi lingual staff ensures all of your questions are answered. Also you get tons of tips what to do and what to see.

If you are looking for the true Aruba experience then just book your stay at the Boardwalk, you will not be disappointed. As a couple or a family, Boardwalk will be an amazing experience. However be warned as you will fall in love with this little gem!
I did :-)
