“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We spent 4 nights at Acqualina Resort and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Such an exclusive feel, yet the staff (every single one we encountered) treated us with such warmth and courtesy.
The spa is a must do!! Best two hours we've spent in a long while. The beach is clean, comfortable chaises with cushions/umbrella whatever you want.
Fantastic dinner(s) at Il Mulino! Excellent!!
Lovely suite with amazing ocean views and a huge balcony....perfect.

Room Tip: Higher floor on the ocean side.

First off, I'm a Virtuoso travel agent that gets to visit many 4 and 5 star hotels often and the Acqualina stands out. Rooms are large,clean and very comfortable. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and always there for any request. The hotel car is great to take you to Bal Harbour shops or area restaurants. The spa was very nice and relaxing.
Acqualina is a little north of Miami and a great choice for families. I saw many kids involved in all the activities they offered and the parents and kids seemed to love it.

Room Tip: Oceanview 1 bedrooms are very spacious

We just had four nites at this wonderful hotel. Could not fault it in any way. The staff are lovely, the facilities and beach are first class. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Their courtesy car driver John, is a wonderful asset with an endearing personality. Loved our stay.

So... when I think back to christmas at acqualina my thoughts initially go to.... the amazing service at breakfast, between the waitstaff and those making the omeletes one could not ask for more. The beach staff was also incredibly accommodating as was lunch on the beach. The hotel is so beautiful, on the outside (saw people taking pics ) and the rooms inside are fab! Large and everything you need is there.
Only complaints were internet was very pretty spotty and housekeeping showed up pretty late in the day but we could still deal cause everything else was so amazing.
Did not have a chance to use the spa , gym was on the small side, never ate at il mulino (as a nyorker not really a fan).... but if you like ferrari's, maseratti's and rolls royces in your driveway then acqualina is for you... Beach is heavenly and you actually feel like you are not in fla...close to south beach, bal harbor and the 95 for those drives to visit grandma.... Great location for aventura mall and all that other retail stuff... Would def return.

We have stayed at Acqualina the past 3 years over winter break and will NEVER stay anywhere else. We travel with our two little boys (ages 3 & 4) and have had the most memorable experiences. We are super high maintenance people & Acqualina exceeds all of our standards.

The rooms are clean and spacious- perfect set up to travel with little ones- either in a standard intracoastal room OR a one bedroom suite. Kids have comfortable cots- the deluxe one bedroom suites even have a second bathroom.

The staff is AMAZING. Julia & Rachele from guest services are top notch and will do everything and anything to ensure a PERFECT stay. Jessica at the pool & Andres pool server are wonderful!!! You feel like you're part of a family- never getting lost in the shuffle. Perfect beach access- clean white sand and bright blue water. There are tons of pails/shovels set out each day in a pre-dug pit for kids with umbrellas.

The pool & beach are immaculate. You can be social with other families or have private alone time. Each pool offers a different setting. You will not be disappointed with your stay here---it's truly one of a kind! You will be forever spoiled and unable to stay anywhere else, especially in South Florida!!

Have stayed at many luxury hotels in Florida and they are good but this is in another league. Superb accomodation, great service, fantastic facilities for adults and kids.
Food quality superb and reasonalbly priced rather than the usual overpirced hotel menu's
Adult only pool is great and I have kids so really appreciate not having them bother others.
The SPA is huge and the kids faciliteis great so in short this hotel is one of the rare properties that manages to cater for all people without compromise..
Cant imagine anybody not wanted to return ...
