“Close to the beach, low rates, building needs cleaning and some work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We stayed with a friend for about 5 days. Staff was friendly, caring and helped us with advises or directions when asked. Positive is that is really close to the beach.
We choosed the hotel after doing a research on the web and based on the pictures and the rates we decided to go there. Nothing we found was like the pictures (bathroom with absent tiles, lack of paint, poor cleaning service, breakfast place was small and hard to find a table at 7:30 am because it was full, coffee was really disgusting, room tv was 14`, etc.
Not sure we will come back, no matter the rates.

Room Tip: Close to the beach, low rates, building needs cleaning and some work.

Nice location but no service at all. Do not pay for breakfast there. There are no one. Just one bun and complete self-service plus the cheapest and disgusting coffee. Internal territory is very dirty. When we booking out, girl from reception tried to convince us that our room have no iron after us! After 10 minutes of explanation, she admitted, cute smile, that it probably was not there never.
Avoid this place.

My wife and I, along with our 2 year old took a trip to Miami from july 15-21st and stayed at Aqua Hotel. Our experience was amazing. All the clerks and staff were very helpful and friendly. Any questions we had about the area, they ahd an answer. The room itself was very big and comfortable. Not to mention it is priced very good for the location it is in. It is a 5minute walk to the beach and surrounded by nice dining palces. You cant beat the service and quality of life in the area. Aqua Hotel left us wanting to go back and taying with them, There was always someone available for at the hotel to accomadate us. It has a very nice balcony with several chairs to hang out and have a good time and enjoy the weather. I can honestly say we will be back and look forward to staying at Aqua Hotel in the future.

Room Tip: the master suite is amazing and very spacious with a big garden tub in the bathroom.

To avoid !! Service for dogs. By the Latina squad. If you like cheap service this is your place
Really mean and or non respectful service even if hotel is well placed you have to show courtesy and respect customer

Stayed 3 nights before a cruise & we loved the 'Aqua' and felt it was close to everything for us and had no issues with the room. The staff were friendly and directed us were we wanted to go. Would stay again if in Miami!

Receptionists are very positive and helpfull. The few complaints we had were handled immediately and competently. Great location right next to Lincoln Road Mall and close to the beach. The hotel probably has the cheapest valet parking in Miami Beach (20 $ a day). Rooms are basic with paper-thin walls.

I stayed here for one night in June. The place served it purpose and the purpose was to sleep there. No extras at all. Very basic

Pros: Nice location and wonderful staff. Helped me when the cab could not find the hotel. Water pressure in shower was great!

Cons: very basic. Bed small tv with few cable channels. Poor lighting. No a/c
