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. What it is - a really nice boutique hotel one block from the beach with the most friendly staff you could imagine. Upon check-in they take the time... More

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

Enjoyed the Aqua from the moment we arrived!! Spa-like feeling, piped in calm music, a lovely garden and picnic area, and most importantly clean rooms! The décor is modern, everything looks very new and is well maintained. There is no elevator, but this is a small intimate hotel and easy to go up a few steps if your room is... More

wkdwtch, Thank you for a great review. You're right, customer service seems to be hard to find these days, but guests can always be guaranteed great customer service when staying at any of our hotels. Don't worry, you'll never have to deal with a computer when visiting North Beach Village....computers don't give those great hugs like Maggie does! Come back... 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.
