We spent four nights at the Aqua Hotel in Fort Lauderdale and had a great experience. The property is one of many owned by the chain but it is operated like a small hotel. The staff is particularly helpful. Maggie and Dominick were the primary people who assisted us during out stay. The room was clean and cozy, all white... More

I cannot recommend this hotel enough, it is absolutely delightful! The hotel staff does everything to make you feel like you are home...only better! This was our second time staying at The Aqua Hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff suggested places for drinks, dining, etc. and made sure we had a driver to get to our cruiseship...

This is one of our favorite spots. We were so happy to see that Maggie was still here. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The pools are warm and sunny. Location is great and it is so close to the beach. Honestly the main reason we came back was because of the service. Maggie is Wonderful!!

Beautifully renovated, spotless, and perfectly located only one block from Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard, The Aqua Hotel was a memorable and excellent choice for our last night in Florida. The rooms are spacious and bright, with private patios or views of the beach (2nd floor). Michael and his cheerful staff conscientiously attended to our every need. We thoroughly enjoyed our...

My husband and I traveled to Fort Lauderdale to attend a beach wedding for some good friends and all in attendance stayed at The Aqua. This property is very much a boutique hotel and the location was great. It's located just a block from the beach. The customer service was wonderful. Maggie Martino, the manager, was very helpful with all... More

What a treat! Cute little hotel just an easy block away from the beautiful beach. Unbelievably friendly and supportive staff! Special shout out to Maggie and Al for all of their help in making our weekend such a success! I highly recommend The Aqua!

We chose this hotel because it had great reviews and was in a good location. Well the latter was great but we found it to be poorly serviced and the standard of hygiene patchy and not acceptable. Our first cleaner was in our suite less than two minutes. The next day the floor was swept and left considerably dirtier than... More

I can't say enough good things about the Aqua. Maggie and Dominic in the office are top notch and made me feel super welcome. My room was spacious, modernly decorated, and immaculately maintained, which is saying something since the primary color is white. The location is one block from the ocean but just off the main strip (A1A), so you... More

Checked in was very easy. Arrived mid afternoon and Maggie who is super friendly and cheerful gave us her business card and recommended a restaurant very close to the hotel (half a block) and we got a free margarita with lunch. Went for a walk on the beach which is only 2 blocks away and close to other restaurants. The... More
