OMG...I almost don't want to write this review because I want to keep this gem of a hotel secret!!! Maggie, who runs the hotel, is an absolute doll!!! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left she was continually asking us how were we doing, did we need anything. We needed a wine opener and a digital clock,... More

We only stayed at this property one night but found the room to be a good size, clean room with small kitchenette. The property itself is small but does still have two pools and a BBQ area and is close to the beach (1 block). The woman at the front desk was also really friendly.

The Aqua hotel is located one block from the beach and at walking distance from several nice restaurants. The rooms are spacious and clean. The floor cleaning could be a bit better but it was ok. The staff is super friendly. David gave us lots of tips concerning restaurants and shopping nearby. The facilities are simple but well decorated. It... More

Giselelamas, Thanks so much for your review. You're absolutely right, AQUA has a great location. Just one block from the beach but away from the main strip, allowing guests to get away from that noise. We always appreciate guest feedback, thanks a lot. Take care, NBV More

Everything that I read about the Aqua was spot on. When we arrived at 1:00 AM, we rang the buzzer and Richard appeared in 2 minutes like Superman out of thin air. Maggie was as wonderful as all of the posts indicate. Amanda was terrific. Everyone was extremely friendly. Exactly 1 1/2 blocks from the beach. Sunrise was fabulous.

This is a recently renovated mid-century modern property. It is clean and very conveniently located. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and well appointed. The staff was friendly, outgoing, and helpful. Parking was easy. The pools are clean, warm, and uncrowded. We'd happily stay there again.

This is boutique hotel, very well done. The staff is very attentive and friendly. I stayed in what I would say the best room #1301 WOW, it's the room to get!!!. It's completely furnished with a kitchen dinette area. So, if you are the kind of person that likes a good clean place and do mind spending a little extra,... More

I have stayed at the Aqua Hotel one night on January 11th before going on a cruise departing from Port Everglades. The hotel met and in a sense exceeded my expectations. I had a small problem with the first room I got when I checked in (I had booked a suite with a king size bed). I went to Maggie's... More

Our stay was brief but we would return for sure. Super nice staff/manager (Maggie) and clean, cute room that felt like a sweet little duplex. Unfortunately we arrived late and left after breakfast at Village Cafe (Not recommended at this time) so did not try pools but look forward to going back next time cruising out of Ft. Lauderdale.
