The Aqualina is a boutique hotel tucked in to the lower (29) floors of an oceanfront Miami luxury condominium. The level of service can only be described as "over the top". After checking in at the front desk, where we were offered a welcome drink and refreshing towel, we were given a tour of the property then brought to your... More

From the minute your car pulls up until you leave, this is a luxurious spot. Check in with champagne always works and a tour of the property helps you get your bearings. Once you're settled it's down to the pools and beach. Three pools to choose from, just follow the sun, and the beach is grand. The grill bar has... More

My wife and I stayed at the Acqualina to celebrate our anniversary. From the moment we checked in we were treated like we were the only guests at the hotel.

This place is amazing! From the valet to the pool staff everything is as classy as it gets! We were in a suite on the 28th floor and what an amazing view.

Acqualina is a beautiful hotel. It's a bit pretentious on entry (yeah, we get it, some of your customers drive Rolls Royces, thanks for lining the driveway with them, and yeah, we get that you're going for Mediterranean palazzo, but it's a bit fussy) but undeniably attractive. I recognize that it's a matter of taste, but it was a little... More

My family of four (2 children under the age of 6) stayed at the Aqualina in June 2014. We are familiar with the area and have stayed at the Loews on South Beach previously as well as other hotels and rentals in the area.

The most luxurious amenities and services. From Giovanna, at the front desk, to Marcus, at the amazing breakfast buffet, to the cabana boys, Jonathan and Daniel the service was amazing.
