The owner lady went out of her way to help us. We had arrived early and had back pain bad, she took our bags and got us into a room right away, and brought our bags to our room. Room was big, clean and nice, only a minute from beach and restaurants and bars. Had 2 pools and lots of... More

We've been staying at Aqua for three years now two sometimes three times a year. Aqua never disapoints. It's a two and three floor hotel located two blocks from beach at Northbeach which is a quiet neighborhood but just a short walk to the restaurants near Las Olas Blvd and A1A. The rooms and a apartments are pretty big, airy,... More

We just came back from our 4th stay at the Aqua. This is a nice boutique hotel that offers great service to their guests. Especially Maggie whom we now consider a friend of our family ! The rooms are comfortable and clean. The location is just a block from the beach and the ocean front restaurants. The hotel has two... More

This small hotel has all exterior rooms facing one of two pool courtyards. Renovated in an art deco style, the rooms are sleek and very functional. Our room had a small kitchen complete with utensils. The beach is a short walk away as are restaurants. The staff were very nice upon check in. We had to wait for our room... More

We stayed at the Aqua the night before and the night after our cruise. Arrived early in the day, and were welcomed by Maggie, who graciously stored our luggage, and showed us around the hotel. She arranged our shuttle to the cruise port, all the staff made us feel so welcome! Round of applause to the cleaning staff!, our rooms... More

My wife and I arrived early at the hotel and we felt welcome and excited we made the right choice. As soon we stepped out of the taxi to the resort! Gina, the Hotel Rep, gave us an ice cold water bottle and welcomed us to the resort. She told us to enjoy the facilities and showed us on a... More

Just checked out of the Aqua a few hours ago so I'm writing this with a fresh perspective. The hotel is a block or so from the waterfront set among the increasing number of high rise condos and hotel. It's a refreshing change from big, impersonal places, recently renovated with a modern deco touch. We stayed in a 2nd floor... More

bill2455, What a kind review, thanks so much. You're right, guests can't help but love Maggie's personality. Tie that in with the great location and affordable rates and Aqua is pretty much perfect! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again soon! More

It's very difficult to know how good a hotel is from such a distance. However with the Aqua hotel we really had no need to worry. It is an excellent hotel.

My girlfriend and I had a great time at Aqua for 2 nights. The hotel is very hip, clean and in a great location, i.e. close to beach, restaurants, the W and water taxi pickup. We liked the area as the older, boutique hotels felt like a step back in time amidst all the high rises. We compared Aqua to... More

Wbseahorse, What a great review, thanks so much. Aqua could be compared to the old show Melrose Place....just with a lot more laughing and a lot less drama! We too hope that another girls trip is right around the corner. You are all always welcome! More
