If you are looking for cheap hotels in Aruba, the search can be very frustrating. There is really no such thing as "cheap" hotels on Aruba. You will NOT find a Motel-6 or a Super-8 here. But, we did find some hotel deals in Aruba that were excellent VALUE and that would fit even the most frugal person’s budget.
Most of the Aruba resorts on the beaches can be extremely expensive, boasting their uber LUXURY accommodations! But, many of our wedding guests were on a limited budget.
Besides, if you are anything like me on vacation, you will be spending most of your time on the beach, or sightseeing, or exploring. Why spend most of your vacation dollars for a room that you will barely use?
We had a relatively small group of fifteen people for our wedding. Even with an event contract for the wedding and the reception, that number didn't meet the "big name" hotel's group guarantee limit in order to get any discounts on rooms. And thus began my search for hotel deals in Aruba.
Since we had chosen the Marriott Resort and the beach in front of it as our wedding venue, we needed a place close to the High Rise Hotels, and Palm Beach.
What I found was this little gem... The Boardwalk Hotel is our Top Pick for the best value hotel. it is located across the street from Palm Beach, Aruba. and The Boardwalk was only a fraction of the price of the hotels a few hundred yards away.
See my review for pictures and details of our stay at the Boardwalk.
The Boardwalk is an apartment style hotel. Casita means "little house" in Papiamento (the language Of Aruba). and each of the 13 casitas are just that, with a full kitchen, eating area and livng room in addition to either 1 or 2 bedrooms. The lush tropical gardens between the buildings provide a great deal of privacy for each unit.
Voted our favorite place to stay, it is our top pick. The best of the best cheap hotels in Aruba. The great location-minutes away from Palm Beach, the size of the rooms, and the friendly, accommodating staff makes The Boardwalk Hotel the best value on Palm Beach, Aruba, and in our opinion, one of the best hotel deals in Aruba.
