Bloggers who stayed at Boardwalk Hotel Aruba

When you drive along Aruba’s western coastline, you’ll mostly see high rise resorts and other fancy but more anonymous hotels. The Boardwalk Small Hotel Aruba is exactly the opposite. The Boardwalk Hotel isn’t one building with many rooms. Instead, it consists of separate fully equipped and air-conditioned apartments and studios or “casitas” that all have their own private patio with barbecue and hammock.

Anne writes: "Hier wil je logeren op Aruba: ontdek het Board Walk Small Hotel. Zoals jullie weten zijn we gek op boetiekhotels– en resorts. Kleinschalige hotels met een eigen karakter wat ze uniek maakt. Het Boardwalk Small Hotel op Aruba is hét adres voor iedereen die graag naar dit mooie eiland wil, maar niet in een resort met honderden kamers wil logeren. Je vindt dit hotel in de wijk Noord. Op loopafstand van het hotel vind je veel restaurants, winkels en onder andere het populaire Moomba beach".

Bloggersweekend Aruba 2014

In September 2014 Boardwalk Small Hotel organized a "BloggerWeekend" for international travel bloggers to unveil the best Aruba has to offer.

The hotel hosted a group of 15 international bloggers from the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, Chile, Canada, USA, Brazil and Colombia. It was the first time ever for an entire hotel in Aruba to close its doors for the purpose of hosting bloggers only.

‘Treasure Boxes’ - Boardwalk's unique in-room guest amenity - were handed to all bloggers, offering a selection of the best hot spots and hidden gems in Aruba for them to enjoy and explore. It gave them a sense of direction to get off the beaten path and explore Aruba from a different viewpoint.

Their blog and videoposts are full of great Aruba tips and recommendations. Their Aruba discoveries and adventures can also be followed on social media via #BWBW2014, #boardwalklife and #discoveraruba. Their adventures are captures on video and can be seen here: (Colombia)

En esta oportunidad vinimos invitados por el Boardwalk Small Hotel y la Autoridad de Turismo de Aruba, junto a blogueros de Europa y América, todos con el proposito de descubrir los tesoros ocultos de la Isla Feliz.
El Boardwalk es un hotel pequeño, de acogedoras cabañas llamadas por ellos “Casitas”, con espacios llenos de detalles de buen gusto y una estética caribeña dominada por el color aguamarina y el blanco. En él hay que resaltar el ambiente íntimo diseñado para la tranquilidad de sus huéspedes, aspecto que cautiva en un destino de grandes hoteles y resorts, como éste.

All stays at Boardwalk Small Hotel Aruba come with what’s called an Aruba Treasure Box, a Boardwalk original. The box—a literal wooden box—will be waiting in your casita upon your arrival stuffed with a selection of Boardwalk-approved local activities, dining options and more. Culled from preferences you’ll have indicated online, it’s just another arm of the effort to inform and see through the best possible Aruban guest experience as more than just idle hosts.
Here’s a quick list of some of the treasures we found in Aruba—some facilitated by Boardwalk and some not: Read more here.
