Maggie, the manager is the best. She is a great representative for the property. She was so friendly when she greeted us. She was the front desk and bell hop person. The property is very clean as is the rooms. We had a small studio, which was pretty small though. Beds were a little soft for my taste. Very close to the beach. The property had two nice clean pools. I thought the room was a little pricey when I booked it, but after meeting Maggie, it was well worth it. We had a late flight out of Fort Lauderdale, all the rooms were booked, but Maggie let us relax by the pool till we had to go to the airport. I come back anytime.

We spend the last night in Florida, on the way back home, in Aqua hotel. We had dinner from their nearby cafe, and we had a fantastic experience with both the room and dinner. Both were superb and well located. Staff at hotel and cafe extremely friendly and supportive.
Hotel located just 2 blocks from beach and has 2 wonderful pools. Kids loved it.
Room was great and modern.
We will for sure come back, and our next trip to Fort Lauderdale we will stay at Aqua hotel.

Accommodation can be expensive in Fort Lauderdale, so we found this a real gem. Priced well compared with other hotels, and ideal for what we needed. Very modern, spacious unit in great position for access to port/airport/and beach/resaurants. It's just a small group of units but perfect if you're not wanting to pay the very high prices for big high-rise hotels with all the fancy spas, gyms etc that you never use. Aqua has a very nice, warm pool, and when you're on holiday you so seldom use any of the big hotel facilities, why pay so much more to have access to them. Full kitchen in the unit is great. Very friendly, helpful staff. Don't look any further...book it!

There is everything EXCELLENT about the Aqua hotel in Fort Lauderdale! We LOVED the staff, everyone from Gee to Maggie and anyone else who helped us while we were there for our 3 day staff was flawless! They were kind, helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, and immediately helped us unwind from our long trip from Montana! However much they are paid, it should be MORE! We stayed in 3 hotels over the course of a week and they were THE BEST!

The hotel was wonderfully clean, can you imagine how hard that is with a nearly ALL WHITE interior? Wow. The minute we tracked sand in from our shoes it occurred to me how difficult it would be to keep the rooms so pristine, but they do. Speaking of the interior, it is hip and fun and very comfortable! We loved how spacious the rooms felt, it was great to not feel "on top of each other." We also loved having the kitchen, it made life so much easier traveling with 3 children to have cold drinks, and breakfast at the ready! The bedding was comfy, and I am a picky bedding person. Lastly, we loved that Gee showed us all the supplies for the beach, from towels to chairs to umbrellas. The Aqua has thought of everything to make their guest comfortable and happy, and their execution was flawless. Well done EVERYONE!

Bottomline, you will be so glad you stayed there, it was a highlight of our trip to Florida.

WRB97,
Wow, what a nice review. Thank you so much. We know traveling can be tough, especially when you have 3 children in tow, and we're so honored that we were the highlight of your trip to Florida! We can also arrange for babysitting, so the next time you visit we'd be happy to take care of the little ones while you enjoy a date night! Can't wait to see you again. Take care, NBV

Cool little hotel one block from the beach. Rooms are fresh and clean, with comfortable beds. We had a small kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave, stovetop & toaster. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are two nice pools to enjoy. Short walk to many restaurants. We only stayed for one night on our way back from a Keys vacation, but hope to return to Fort Lauderdale and The Aqua Hotel!

We only had one night stay in Fort Launderdale (which in hindsight wasn't enough) - we wanted to stay in a smaller hotel and not a bog standard chain hotel so we chose The Aqua after reading lots of reviews for lots of hotels locally.

We were very pleased with our choice - the room was spotless clean, the bed comfortable and everything was as advertised. To be fair we arrived late in the evening, showered and headed straight out for food and then slept until we checked out the next morning so we didnt really get to use too many of the hotel facilities. If we had been able to stay longer we would have used the pool and even the bbq. All the staff we came across from check in, to cleaning staff, to Maggie who we saw on the way out when we went in search of breakfast were extremely polite and helpful - what more can you ask for :-)

What we liked the most was the care and attention when we checked in - nothing was too much trouble and lots of advice on where to eat etc was given. The location was brilliant - just a short stroll to the fantastic beach and plenty of restaurants etc within a 10 min walk.

The only negative thing I can mention is there are no blinds on the windows (only curtains) so I felt there was a lack of privacy when people were walking past your window if you had your curtains open

We would stay again if we were in the area and only wish we had a longer stay on this visit to enjoy everything the Aqua has to offer.

Room Tip: All the rooms look to be fitted out the same - very clean, modern and well equipped. Upstairs rooms...
