SO in September I had the amazing opportunity to visit Aruba! I had only previously ever been to Cuba in the Caribbean, so I didn’t really know what to expect. But If you’ve been reading my blog or watching my Youtube Channel then you’ll know that I LOVED it. Part of the reason why I enjoyed myself so much was the gorgeous casita I stayed in during my time there. So, let me tell you all about the Boardwalk Small Hotel.
About Boardwalk Small Hotel
This beautiful little boutique hotel is run by two Belgian twin sisters, Kimberly and Stephanie. They were born and raised in Aruba until they were 6 years old. But they always came back yearly for a vacation and now they’re back permanently. They are kind, welcoming and always chatty. The hotel is just a short walk away from Palm Beach and now has it’s own private section of the beach. Boardwalk Small Hotel was built on an old coconut plantation and still maintains that tropical vibe.
About the Rooms at the Boardwalk Hotel
Oh my God, the ROOMS. There are 14 casitas. They are bright, breezy and colourful. It’s like having the perfect holiday apartment. If I could live there year round I would. They have single bed studios and large four person apartments. Each room has its own outdoor dining area with a hammock. The aircon is incredible (I live for air conditioning) and the wifi is strong even in the rooms further from reception.
The Food at the Boardwalk Hotel
There is indeed! We had an amazing breakfast at the Boardwalk Small Hotel. There was fresh yoghurt with granola, fruit a plenty, sweet iced tea, fresh juice, Aruban breakfast pastries and more. It was all brought to our outdoor dining area by the wonderful staff so it was nice and intimate. Each room also has a kitchenette so you can go fully self-catering if you wish.
Would I Recommend?
Of course! If you want something luxurious but not standard, then Boardwalk Small Hotel is the place for you. I am all about unique accommodation with an air of luxury and that’s what I got at the Boardwalk. They had cocktail hours where they’d make a pitcher of something tropical and all the guests could mingle and chat. I loved that there was a sort of community vibe that you rarely find outside of hostels. And if I still haven’t convinced you, they have a 5 star rating on TripAdvisor and a certificate of excellence.
