We are halfway through our five day stay and I wish it were longer. I’m writing this from the famous red couches right off the beach, our favorite spot. Acqualina never changes its vibe, never loses its luster or warmth. It is immaculate and pristine still; no stone is left unturned for its guests. Special shoutout to Rachele, Giovanna, Glenda, Shaq, and of course Christof!!! Honestly service like this does not exist anywhere else we have ever encountered. It’s a family here. We are so happy for your continued success and hope to continue to stay at Acqualina for many years to come!

Hotel's Favorite
I didn’t realize how much I missed the Acqualina until I arrived. I’m sitting on my balcony now, checking out tomorrow after a long weekend, and of course, I don’t want to leave. I have stayed at 5 star hotels around the world, including Miami Beach, and nothing comes even close. My husband and I decided that it’s not just the luxury factor, as the hotel is gorgeous and immaculate. What sets the Acqualina aside is that it’s truly a family. Where everybody knows your name. Yes there really is a place like this. And it’s genuine in every way, never artificial. Yes Rachel did really give me a huge hug when I saw her. And Giovanna hung out with us at the beach. Anicet always remembered exactly what we like and is an extremely special man. Shout outs go to Fabiana, Frank, and Matt at the pool and beach. What a pleasure it is to witness a genuine work ethic with equally genuine graciousness. None of this would be possible without the incredible Christof. Your warm, energetic interaction with guests is the heart of the Acqualina. Plus we love your dazzling shoe collection! There is honestly no reason to stay anywhere else in Miami Beach than the Acqualina. It’s worth every dime. Thank you so much for such an incredible weekend!

Dear laurak266, Thank you so much for taking the time to share such sincere sentiments and rest assured, Acqualina missed you and your family just as much, if not more. We were thrilled having you back this holiday weekend and relished the opportunity to reconnect and also pamper you. It is always lovely to see a familiar smiling face and you are most certainly a part of our Acqualina family. Thank you also for highlighted so many of our wonderful dream makers by name, we have means to reward excellence and I will gladly see to it. Looking forward to your next "window of opportunity" to plot an escape to your "home away from home" already! All my very best to you and yours! With Sincerity Christof Pignet General Manager

I recently stayed with my family at the Acqualina resort over Christmas. The rooms were excellent (although somewhat dated). We had 2 coastal view rooms and 1 oceanfront classic suite. The rooms were very large and the linens and towels were top notch. The bathroom was very spacious and the shower had nice water pressure. These are all critical things to look for at a five star resort. If you are paying over $1,000 per night per room you better get good towels and bed linens. The beds were not the most comfortable but that could just be personal preference. The breakfast buffet was first rate with great service and food selections. The pool and beach service were awesome. Never had to fight for a chair even during the busy holiday. Bar service and food by the pools was great. Kevin was the best bartender and provided excellent service. Concierge service was also top notch and very professional. The Sunny Isles beach was great but the building was on a busy street that was nothing special. Crowded Miami with a lot of traffic. Overall this place earned its five diamond rating and I recommend it to anyone looking for a restful beach vacation in North Miami.

Simply the best! Great for families; we felt like the entire staff knew who we were. Really hardworking and cheerful staff. They upgraded us for free and we had a great stay. We found that if we wanted sun we had to get to the pools early because the afternoon they were in the shade. The beach kept sun much longer. Kids club was fun for the kiddos but they don’t swim with more than a handful of kids and they didn’t find the science part very informational, more just crafts. Staff there were nice. We would get a kitchenette on our next visit, eat some meals in and also explore the neighborhood a little more for dining. We were disappointed in El Mulino after having an incredible dinner at Pane e Vino in Miami Beach. We can’t wait to return.
