“Perfect place to celebrate my wife 40th birthday”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We had a great time at the aqua. The staff were very nice and seemed to enjoy seeing us enjoy ourselves. I think we did get a little too loud on our arrival night. My wife was very excited to see all her friends who had traveled to be with her. For that we do apologize and hope it did not ruin any other guest stay. Thanks for the hospitality and for making my wife's birthday special. Hope to see you again.

I'm staying at the Aqua hotel for the first time. The sizeable rooms are decorated with surf boards and are furnished with art deco/South Beach type furniture and colors. The customer service is great. Peaceful and just a block from Ft. Lauderdal'e beach. I'd recommend this to any business person or family.

My husband and I stayed at the Aqua for one night before our cruise. It was the day after Sandy went through, but the hotel was so organized. When we arrived the staff was very professional and courteous. After a very quick check in we were taken to our beautiful room. Everything was immaculate and very spacious as other reviewers stated. I wish we could have stayed longer, but we hope to come back for another visit in the future. Again, a beautiful hotel that is only a very short distance from the beach. It was nothing short of perfect!:) Thanks again Aqua for helping my husband and I have a great start to our anniversary vacation!

Our experience was the best ever. When I first pulled into the hotel lot I was greeted by "Maggie" very pleasant and right away I knew I was at the right place. I have never seen such a hotel with pleasant staff and emaculant rooms. The rooms were modern, clean and spacious. We had such a good time we are coming back again!!!
You have to see it to believe it!!!! Great place...

Room Tip: One block from beach and other festivities

As we drew up in the car the manager came out to meet us. This set the tone for our three night stay as part of pur tour of Florida. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Just one block from the beach with chairs that can be borrowed from the hotel.

Small kitchenette allows you to prepare your own breakfast.

Good value for this expensive area of Fort Lauderdale.

We loved staying at the Aqua, so much that we came back for a second night! Great location, great service (special mention to Maggie!) best beds and good recommendations for dinner nearby. Maggie even lent us 4 towels for our swim with dolphins at Key Largo, when we weren't expected back for a week....very quiet and clean, close to the beach & good shopping mall. Would love to go back, and thank you Maggie & staff for 2 fabulous stays.
