We spend the last night in Florida, on the way back home, in Aqua hotel. We had dinner from their nearby cafe, and we had a fantastic experience with both the room and dinner. Both were superb and well located. Staff at hotel and cafe extremely friendly and supportive. Hotel located just 2 blocks from beach and has 2 wonderful... More

Accommodation can be expensive in Fort Lauderdale, so we found this a real gem. Priced well compared with other hotels, and ideal for what we needed. Very modern, spacious unit in great position for access to port/airport/and beach/resaurants. It's just a small group of units but perfect if you're not wanting to pay the very high prices for big high-rise... More

There is everything EXCELLENT about the Aqua hotel in Fort Lauderdale! We LOVED the staff, everyone from Gee to Maggie and anyone else who helped us while we were there for our 3 day staff was flawless! They were kind, helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, and immediately helped us unwind from our long trip from Montana! However much they are paid, it... More

Cool little hotel one block from the beach. Rooms are fresh and clean, with comfortable beds. We had a small kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave, stovetop & toaster. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are two nice pools to enjoy. Short walk to many restaurants. We only stayed for one night on our way back from a Keys... More

We only had one night stay in Fort Launderdale (which in hindsight wasn't enough) - we wanted to stay in a smaller hotel and not a bog standard chain hotel so we chose The Aqua after reading lots of reviews for lots of hotels locally. We were very pleased with our choice - the room was spotless clean, the bed... More

The staff went out of their way to help us. Good location a few minutes walk from the beach. In the afternoon everyone around the two pools was treated to ice cold lavender scented face cloths! Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. There are several restaurants within walking distance. Great little find thanks to Trip Advisor.

If you want a break from the big box hotels with the crowds , noises, and prices, try Aqua. Only couple blocks off the beach so nice and quiet. Plenty of restaurants nearby, with an open air restaurant with super piano player on weekend nights 2 block away. Maggie, the manager, is most efficient and congenial, ensuring your rooms are...

Take this hotel for what it is and what it isn't, and you will be extremely happy. What it isn't - a deluxe mega property with olympic size pool and spectacular views.

Paul S, Your review was spot on. We are not a deluxe mega property with olympic sized pools, but the love we have for our guests is definitely deluxe and mega! Our 39 unit boutique hotel offers personalized service that some of the larger hotels cannot. We're so happy that you noticed and are looking forward to your next visit!... More

Stayed here for 2 nights pre-cruise - wish we could've stayed longer. The rooms were bright, clean and very cute. The pool is small but a perfect size to float on air mattresses & bask in the sun. Didn't realize till the end of our stay that there were actually 2 pools on the property and the grounds are very... More
