Boardwalk, Small Hotel Aruba
Hidden gem close to the beach, bars & restaurants
This hotel is a true hidden gem. You cannot ask for more: super friendly stuff, the rooms/ casitas are very large, fully equipped and individually decorated. It feels just like home - super clean, welcoming and tranquil. If you want to be close to the hustle and bustle of the hotel area but don't like the giant high rise hotels, this is your place. You can have the fun of the close by beach, restaurants and bars and the piece and quiet of a superior boutique hotel at the same time. If we ever go back to Aruba, this will be our place to stay.

Wonderful Stay
Amazing hotel-exactly as promised. Employees are exceedingly nice and helpful. Casita was spacious, clean, comfortable, and very well stocked.

Girls Getaway
I went for a girls' weekend trip, 4 nights, 5 days. The location is directly across the street from the Ritz and private beach access was a short walk away. The food and beverage service from the Ritz (which comes with a discount when you present your Boardwalk Card) was great. You didn't have to leave the shade of your palapa for an icy drink or a meal. We also received a significant discount on our spa service from the Ritz. Our casita was very clean, including our kitchen. The only thing that might be a drawback for some people is there are two cats who call the hotel home. The cats could be found on our porch at various times during the day, and at times were sprawled out on our patio table. The hotel provides free beach chairs, a cooler, snorkel equipment and beach towels. You can take the items with you to any beach on the island. It was nice to have a cooler at our disposal. There is construction going on around the hotel. Be sure to ask about the current state of work when you book. That might be an issue for some people. The hotel grounds were charming. The pool was small but very refreshing.

Small price, large offering!
At the price point I paid, I wasn't expecting much. But I honestly got a lot, plus more. Location was great, staff was friendly, service was on point, everything just exceeded my expectations. Only gripe was the water from the shower did not get as hot as we wanted.. other than that I would definitely stay here again.
