So nice and cool hotel in a "beachy" kind of style! All in white and turqoise! Two small swimmingpools! Only two minutes walk to the beach. Free wifi, free parking, free pool and beach towels. When we arrived in the middle of the night, tired after en long and bumpy flight from Sweden, manager Richard O'Conner was very helpful and... More

We loved the suite we had; it was decorated in a quirky and tasteful way.Very comfortable bed as was the settee. The kitchen was really well equipped and everything was well looked after. Lovely pools within the grounds and a stone's throw from the beautiful beach. Really enjoyed running along the seafront each day. Handy for places to eat along... More

ajduk, Thanks so much for your review. Aqua is perfectly located. Close to the beach and restaurants but tucked just far enough away so guests can escape from the noise whenever they want. With 2 pool (one saltwater) and a large gated courtyard, it's a great place for families. We look forward to your next visit! Thanks again for your... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the AQUA for 5 days while visiting Fort Lauderdale. After our experience all we can say is that we will never stay anywhere else. Everything from the staff to the room to the location was absolutely perfect, we plan on making this a yearly trip. I have stayed in several hotels in the Fort... More

Nice little hotel with clean and spacious rooms and two small pools. Even if the reception is open only in the morning, the receptionist arrived within 1-2 minutes at our arrival. The beach is only one block away, so - anytime again!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Aqua for one night before we boarded our cruise. The hotel is tucked about a block away from the beach, but was easy for a GPS to locate. When we arrived, we were promptly greeted by Maggie, who was showing another family around the property. She invited us to sit in the... More

You can take some of our beach cruisers and explore Ft. Lauderdale via bicycle or take a yoga class at one of our sister hotels. There's a lot to do in... More

Very friendly service the night I arrived, everything was so clean, and the place was retro cool. After I left, I discovered I was missing an article of clothing, called the front desk, they located it, and held it for me (Aqua was on the way back from Miami). Recommend this hotel highly.

This is my second visit this year and will return as it is a most pleasant place. It is only a block from the beach , but has two well maintained pool areas. The room was spotless and visited dailey by housekeeper staff. Maggie continues to be their greatest asset. I left an item there which she mailed to me.... 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
