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

From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcomed and looked after. Location is one block back from beach in a delightful area. The rooms have been delightfully and stylishly decorated. Loved it. Didn't use the pool as only stayed 2 nights but would recommend a longer stay as so much to see and do. Staff obviously love their jobs,... More

I stayed for two nights with my wife, found the room very comfortable and the staff extremely polite and helpful. Excellent location, ideal for walking along the beach. Only downsides, $20 added to bill for parking (not included in original quote) very hard pillow and room smelt damp, no doubt due to air con.

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at The Aqua! What a gem of a place, literally steps away from the beach and restaurants. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, which is more like a 1 bedroom apartment with separate living, bedroom and bathroom spaces. Our suite was very clean and spacious with one of the two hotel... More

I found this hotel while researching pre-cruise accommodations, and what made me book Aqua was the stellar reviews, specially reports of cleanliness.

Shera86, Thanks so much for your review! Isn't it nice when the reviews match the hotel? We know how hard travelling can be and always work hard to provide our guests with honest description and photos. We will work on that pillow issue and hope that we can earn that 5th star upon your return! 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. We never charge resort fees, or for coffee or beach views. Recharge your inner holiday and book AQUA. ... more   less
