Vibrant yet tranquil Aruban oasis

This intimate boutique hotel is on the site of an old coconut plantation, the gardens remain a tropical oasis with a private and relaxing feel. Just a few minutes’ walk from the turquoise waters and white sands of the Caribbean Sea, this unique hotel is vibrant in colour and personality, with Aruban inspired casitas and warm staff, there is a real exclusive feel. From here you can take a short stroll to Palm Beach to enjoy the exciting nightlife, restaurants and activities on offer. Each of the colourful casitas has a charcoal BBQ on the oversized shaded patios and a hammock to relax in, stroll through the lush grounds to the hotel pool and whirlpool to unwind.

Best hotel in Aruba!

New York City, New York

My family recently spent two weeks in Aruba and split our time between two hotels: the Renaissance and the Boardwalk. We stayed at the Boardwalk from January 4-12 and it was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! The two women at the front desk, Alice and Katinka, were lovely. They showed our family the property and provided us with a treasure box of things to do in Aruba, many of which we tried out. When my father had a heart attack, they made sure to check up on my family every day to see if they could assist us in any way. They also worked tirelessly to help find us extra nights at the Boardwalk (they were fully booked) so we did not have to move my dad (he was unable to fly for a few days). The cleaning staff was excellent as well. They delivered smoothies to our room after my dad got back from the hospital and they decorated my parent's bedroom after I mentioned that they were celebrating their 25th Anniversary. A special shoutout to Veronica, she was an absolute gem! The location was great. It was a five-minute walk to the beach and we had great discounts at the Ritz. The hotel was within driving distance to our favorite beach, Arashi Beach, and the Palm Beach Plaza with all of the nightlife and restaurants. The property itself was beautiful and very serene. They had a nice pool and areas where you could sit and relax with hammocks. We loved grilling on our patio and playing with the cats that wander around the property. They are currently expanding the hotel and set to open it later this year. We are already planning our next trip to Aruba and we can't wait to be back at the Boardwalk!

Perfect vacation! A must-stay!

Alexandria, Virginia

Despite the fantastic reviews, the Boardwalk Hotel exceeded our expectations. It is the perfect beach hotel! The rooms are clean, well-appointed, and nicely decorated. The kitchen was helpful because it allowed us to make breakfast in the morning and some lunches. Next time, we’ll probably fire up the grill but didn’t get our act together on this trip. Most importantly, the beach is perfect! It’s a quick 5 minute walk to the beach from the hotel, where the hotel has a designated area for Boardwalk guests. It’s on the same beach as the Ritz Carlton. We reserved a palapa each day, which came with two loungers (free). Waitstaff from the Ritz Carlton comes around to offer drinks and food. And there are windsurfing, kite surfing, paddle boarding etc rentals from Vela Sports right there. It could not have been better! You can’t go wrong with the Boardwalk Hotel!
