when booking a short weekend trip to Aruba, the choice for a hotel was easily made. The hotel was also recommended by friends and they did not disappoint.

I travel a lot for my job and probably stay in 100 plus different hotels a year but the fact that this is only the second hotel I've ever been inspired to review, and also the fact that it's my favourite hotel ever, should be evidence of how much I love it. My casita was spacious and colourful, with all...

I can't say enough good things about Boardwalk Hotel. I don't like to stay in the big resorts because I prefer a more personal, private experience. Boardwalk Hotel was even better than the pictures. The casita was perfect and we loved having the grill on our patio so we could grill some steaks. I got the "romance package" with the...
