Boardwalk Small Hotel Aruba selected by USA Today as one of 9 Caribbean Hidden Gem Hotels, January 2013
"Boardwalk Hotel Aruba: For those in search of a truly intimate boutique experience on Aruba, the Boardwalk Hotel is an excellent mid-range choice. This peaceful 14-room property, tucked behind three massive Marriott properties and situated on a former coconut plantation, remains an oasis of calm. Adventure sport seekers have called this their secret vacation home for years, but the property also appeals to couples and families. The bright, spacious rooms -- more like apartments -- have fully equipped kitchens, fine linens and private patios. Snorkel gear is provided free to guests, as are beach towels, coolers, chairs and umbrellas. There's no direct beach access, but guests can walk to nearby Palm Beach (full of bustling restaurants, casinos and nightlife) or get in the car and head to a hidden beach recommended by the owners -- they know the local scoop, so guests should be sure to ask their advice."
