Great location. Quaint, nice redone kitchen with all the amenities needed, some cutlery, paper towels, salt paper, plates few different types of cups, toaster, coffee maker and big fridge. I could stay in a place like this for weeks! The pool just out my door and steps from the main drag and a block form the beach. Maybe, you may... More

The accommodation here is definitely typical of the layout of a motel. We had an average sized room, no kitchen but it was equipped with a fridge and microwave which was more than adequate for our needs. Our room was clean with maid service daily. Well located for the beach and also for the main restaurant area. Would not hesitate... More

We stayed there as a pre-cruise accommodation. We arrived late after office hours. We were informed as how to enter the property by email and found the welcome letter and detailed info right on office door as it was mentioned in the email. All were nicely organized, no hassle. We stayed in a large, spacious room. Free parking. Great value.... More

We loved this place! It is small & quaint. We didn't want the mega hotels at all. This felt like home. It is right on Ocean Dr, so you walk across the street & there's the beach. You can walk to shops & restaurants. We had a great room right by the pool. Hotel is cozy & welcoming. Svetlana &... More

This place was really a great find! We were in town for a few days for a wedding nearby. The room was great and we were even upgraded (for no reason!) to a bigger room. The room was very clean, nicely decorated, and had everything you would need for an even longer stay (kitchen!) The location is hard to beat,... More

I came to Villa Aqualina for a week-long vacation at the end of September. I found the hotel very very nice, all rooms very clean and very nicely decorated. You can see that the owners out in a lot of time renovating the property. Staff is extremely nice and helpful with everything. Property is very quiet and has a private... More

We have been frequenting Pompano Beach for 10+ years but usually stay with family. With lots of friends and family in from out of town we chose a hotel last minute. We called directly and Lana was very accommodating and gave us a 1 bedroom suite. The room is immaculate with modern upgrades in the kitchen and bathroom. Our kids... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Delray Beach. When we first drove up, we thought we made a mistake because it is so small and tight parking. Once we entered the gate and then our room, our impression changed. It is a completely updated boutique hotel with very few rooms...there was even a crystal chandelier over... More

i found this place by accident and i'm so glad i did! there are only 7 rooms, it's located just a block off of the beach. Lana, the owner, is so pleasant and pround of her hotel, and with good reason. it's freshly redecorated and she keeps it scrupulously clean. the room is enormous with two huge closets and a... More
