I stayed at this property in early August with my husband and two sons. The room and property were clean and beautiful, and the level of service was impressive. Although there were a few surprising and avoidable service issues, they were handled promptly and with a very courteous attitude. Our overall experience was excellent, and I would recommend the property.... More

Best hotel. Perfect service. Excellent food. Friendly staff. It's not cheap. But worth every penny. My family visit this hotel 3-4 times a year. Early check in, no problem, just request it before. Valet parking works fast. What else do you need for the great stay?

Acqualina is a very good 5 star hotel, I wouldn’t say the best I have ever stayed in but it certainly isn’t the worst either and it is, in my opinion, deserving of its status as the number 1 hotel in Sunny Isles. The rooms are the best part of the hotel, we had a suite and a deluxe room... More
