We just arrived home yesterday from our 3rd visit to the Acqualina Resort and Spa and now we have the after vacation blues. The Acqualina will do that to you, but I promise it is worth the heartache. No matter how long you stay or how much you spend on a room here, everyone is treated the same, like royalty.... More

There is nothing 5 star about this resort. I'm surprised it's on The Leading Hotel list. The rooms are renovated but unless you are Ocean view you have no view. Our room was on 5 th floor facing A1A a busy street. Couldn't sleep all night from noise and had no view of water. They said they were sold out... More

We came to this hotel to enjoy our Sunday morning/afternoon and to have brunch. The Il Molino restaurant was absolutely fantastic. The quality of the food/ drinks was outstanding. Our server, Mr. Bashar (I apologize if I spelled his name wrong), server assistant, Simone, were wonderful, making our brunch experience one of the best we ever had. Since we work... More

As a person coming from the hotel industry. I believe hotels are only concrete walls decorated with style. However what makes a good property is always the quality of service. I came to brunch with some friends and was blown away by the service. My server bashul was very attentive and pay attention to detail. His assistant was so helpful... More

I had my wedding here on April 25, 2015. It was a 7pm sunset ceremony on the lawn, with cocktail hour on the lawn as well. Weather was beautiful and the setting was everything I had hoped for.... Kerry was great from day one to make sure I was on track, and that I was happy. The food was ahhhmazing.... More

* Another absolutely spectacular stay at the Acqualina with my family and I (three young kids/wife). We had decided to give the Breakers (Palm Beach) a try, and after a night, we bolted to the Acqualina. * Impeccable Service. Outstanding facilities. Top-notch restaurants. Tight security. * Other than price (high, but worth every penny), there is absolutely no reason to... More

We spent 3 nights here at the end of our trip in April having travelled from South Beach via Disney and Palm Beach.

My wife and I enjoyed everything about the resort except the some of the food at Il Molino. The ambiance is excellent, the pool and beach area are great, and the staff are very attentive.
