We had stayed in this hotel other times before. The staff is extremely friendly and nice, specially the lady at the concierge. We stayed at a suite. The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated with spacious bathrooms, they look new. The beach is nice and you have tables set to have lunch just outside the pool area next to... More

We chose the Acqualina for a weekend in early June stay to celebrate our daughters end of 4th grade with Honors. Upon check-in we learned we had been upgraded to an ocean front one bedroom suite. WAO! Beautifully appointed furniture all around, huge oceanfront balcony, spacious bathroom and room, even a private daybed area which my daughter used as her... More

As a family we only stay in top hotels. The suite in this hotel was amazing as was the ocean view. The staff and service were impeccable and beyond polite. I really can't say anything negative about the hotel. Location is also great! They have a car that will take you anywhere within a 5 mile radius as well. I... More

This was my first stay at Acqualina. I have stayed at many 5 star resort/spas in the US but this one was just perfect. The resort is spotless. The spa was excellent. Our treatments were amazing. The private beach is beautiful. The restaurants and room service were simply delicious. What I will always remember about Acqualina is the staff. Each... More

I'll keep it simple - If you want to know how to operate a 5 star resort, just go here. Everything, I mean everything is the way it should be. Housekeeping, overall facilities, beach, food, all right at the top which has to be a given. But for me, the one thing that separates a good 5 star from a... More

Great hotel in Sunny Isles Beach. This hotel is a bit north of South Beach and will take about 15-20 minutes to drive there. Beautiful hotel with 3 different pools and an EXCELLENT spa.

ROOMS: Spacious and elegantly appointed rooms with amazing bathrooms all with a deep soaking tub. We had requested the split floor plan so our bedroom was separate from the livingroom.
