The only negative aspect of this wonderful hotel built on a former coconut plantation is that it only has 14 rooms/cottages and they fill up quickly. Located just opposite The Ritz, Aruba's poshest hotel, Boardwalk offers spacious air conditioned cottages in a peaceful green oasis. All have patios with hammocks and its charming Belgian owners and their staff always have genuine smiles on their faces. A swimming pool, free wi-fi and a friendly atmosphere are available and a treasure trove of local highlights including a lovely beach are only a 5-minute walk away. Snorkelling gear and beach chairs can be borrowed free of charge and it’s precisely these little extras that set Boardwalk apart from its competitors.
