Very friendly service the night I arrived, everything was so clean, and the place was retro cool. After I left, I discovered I was missing an article of clothing, called the front desk, they located it, and held it for me (Aqua was on the way back from Miami). Recommend this hotel highly.

Thank you Amanda for making us feel so welcome. Pick up a chair, sun umbrella and pool towel, walk a block to the beach and enjoy the warm water. Come back freshen up and walk to one of the nearby restaurants. Return to hotel after a stroll and SLEEP ! If you stay here with children just remember to take... More

This is my second visit this year and will return as it is a most pleasant place. It is only a block from the beach , but has two well maintained pool areas. The room was spotless and visited dailey by housekeeper staff. Maggie continues to be their greatest asset. I left an item there which she mailed to me.... More

Overall a really nice stay at this hotel. The staff was really service-minded. As an example they helped us to print tickets to Miami Marlins-game that we booked. Also got some nice information regarding restaurants and stores in the area. The rooms are big (we had a king size with queen size sofa bed) and had a small kitchen area... More

As every other reviewer mentions, Maggie gives you a big welcome to the Aqua Hotel and is friendly and helpful throughout your stay. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived but we were happy to laze around the pool for a while until it was done. Once ready we were very pleased with the layout and the cleanliness and loved... More

This is our home away from home when we go to Fort Lauderdale! Maggie and the entire staff are great, so helpful and friendly that you never want to leave! The rooms are spotless and the beds are very comfortable. We’re looking forward to returning next year again! Camilla

Maggie, the hotel manager, was amazing. She was so kind to us and she always had something nice to say when we met her around the hotel area. Our room, probably the cheapest variant they have, was big and very comfortable. There was one problem for us though and that was the isolation to our neighboors. We clearly heard them... More

First Maggie welcomes you into the small, cool, minty-smelling office like you are family. She checks you in, provides a tour of the lovely,cozy grounds and offers all the information you need to enjoy your stay. Throughout our four day stay the staff were friendly, helpful and really sweet. They go out of their way to help in any way... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Why are AQUA’s reviews so excellent? Is it that North Beach Village’s boutique hotels are located in an extraordinary area of Fort Lauderdale beach that’s perfect for kids and fun-loving adults? Or is it that AQUA’s concierge-like services ensure happiness? Could it be our sandy beaches a few minutes’ walk away or how our heated pools induce laughter? Maybe it’s our incredibly reasonable rates for modernized suites with flat-screens, kitchens and Wi-Fi included? Yes – families revisit us for these details and many more! From golden beaches and turquoise waters to the winding Intracoastal Waterways – AQUA’s at the heart of a lush barrier island. Our tropical ambiance and 322 days of Caribbean sunshine also adds to AQUA’s success – plus we’re minutes from Fort Lauderdale’s world-class airport, cruises, shops, nightlife, entertainment and restaurants. Imagine – rejuvenating family beach picnics, water taxi rides to chic Las Olas or thrilling watersport adventures!AQUA’s 39 spacious rooms – studios, suites and penthouses – have a refreshing, beachy décor.
