I didn't stay here but I visited my sister and Aunt who stayed here in June. I walked around the grounds and loved it. Two pools and very nicely manicured grounds. The towel cart was full with a nice touch of free lotions to use. The room was spotless. The people in the front office were amazingly nice. They were... More

Found a great rate for one night here. Fantastic front desk staff and check in. Nicely updated and maintained rooms. Our room was on the small side but since I booked so last minute I wasn't expecting much. Comfortable stay.

The Aqua hotel staff goes above and beyond in catering to their guests and making vacation as enjoyable as possible. Very reasonable prices, great facilities, friendly and helpful employees, and an ideal location near the beach! Lots of close restaurants and shops. We will definitely go back to the Aqua next time we visit Fort Lauderdale!

So, I'm a South Florida native and was looking to get away from my regular housing situation for a night to spend some time with my boyfriend, and I'm always looking for hotels that aren't part of a "chain," just because I think they have more personality and charm. Upon driving to Aqua, you pass the main Ft. Lauderdale beach... More

brooks_sc, Thanks for the very kind review. Next time you want a getaway you should check out one of our sister hotels, Royal Palms Resort & Spa. It's for adults only (21+) and all welcoming (fly any flag you like there!) and we also have great parties almost every weekend. Get to know the Village, we promise you won't be... More

We had an amazing stay at the Aqua hotel. The rooms are enormous. We only stayed for a night but the staff was super friendly. It's a minute walk to the beach and minutes from restaurants. The hotel is a Gem and it's off the main roads so it's nice and quite. And the price for one night wasn't bad... More

The Aqua is the best as far as a place to stay and it's staff. There is nothing better than being greeted before you even get out of your car!! We are regulars at the Aqua whenever in Lauderdale, have always stayed at the big name hotels in the past and last year we wanted something different. We came across... More

We only stayed one night, before a cruise, but wanted to stay much longer. The hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable, but the staff stood the show! Every request was met without question! We couldn't have been more pleased! The room was lovely, the grounds, with two pools, were Art Deco splendor, with little extras that made the stay perfection... More

letitia, Thanks so much for your review. During turtle nesting season, it's important that the lights are turned off so the turtles don't go into the street. However, we can assure you this is a very safe area, and we also have 24/7 security that patrols the Village. We appreciate you choosing Aqua and hope to see you again soon! More
