This is a great boutique hotel in Fort Lauderdale. The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and very clean and it's only a block from the beach. We had a suite with a King size bed, fridge, stove and microwave. This was our first time in Fort Lauderdale. The hotel manager, Maggie, was wonderful. She gave us tips, directions and maps/information... More

This property is sleek, clean and meticulously clean. The staff were friendly and the rooms spacious. The beach is a stone's throw away. I can not say much more than I would and will stay here again in the future.

Stayed for two nights before our cruse with Royal Caribbean. We wanted to be near the beach and you are about a 1 minute walk away. Hotel is very clean and staff are really friendly. TV's have great range of channels and whilst suffering with jetlag it's just the home comforts you need a long with a full kitchen with... More

We stayed at this property on February 6th, prior to taking a cruise. Maggie was amazing, as many others have already commented. Plus we arrived early and she arranged for our room to be ready shortly after arriving, this was a nice touch as we were traveling with children and had been awake since 2am for our flight. The room... More

To begin with, our reservation was booked for a double queen with booking.com, and the hotel said that we booked a king room. My friend had to sleep on the sofa. Checking in was ridiculous - they have 1 clerk and 2 chairs indoors, and you have to wait outside. It was 40 degrees when we arrived but it would... More

#1 - Believe all the previous reviews. #2 - Book now. #3 - Aqua is NOT FOR YOU if you want a pretentious, name brand phony hotel. #4 - Aqua IS FOR YOU if you want a friendly Oasis, a hotel that is clean as a whistle, fun smart rooms, friendly and VERY competent staff (Maggie is the best ever)....

We stayed at Aqua the night before a cruise in early February. We arrived at 1am, which we felt terrible about since it meant pressing a buzzer to wake up a staff member. The buzzer was pressed and about 1 minute later, a guy drove up and whisked away our luggage and ran up the stairs with it as if... More

The hotel is very well situated, close to the airport and just off the beach. The Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is an older property but that gives it charm and character. There have been some modern improvements and the rooms are a good size. The two pools were neat and clean and well looked after. Thought... More
