We stayed here twice on our recent trip. It was nice and clean and close to the beach. The first night we had a large comfortable room. The second time we had a much smaller room where we were tripping over each other. The help were very nice but most anxious for us to leave in the morning. Our key...

We had the King 1 bedroom Suite with a large balcony, and an awesome view! This is a totally & beautifully renovated mid century hotel in North Beach. Lots of white leather furniture so you are certain everything is clean which makes me HAPPY!! We could not have asked for a nicer staff. This hotel is one of many owned...

We stayed here as part of a wedding block and were very disappointed. Upon checkin, everything seemed great. We arrived a couple hours early so the manager let us store our luggage and we returned around 3 when our room was said to be ready. However, we were given the room closest to the office with a view of the...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The swimming pools were warm. Close to the beach. I would have rated them higher, however I was very upset about being over charged for my transfer to the cruise line. When I first showed up Maggie told me she could schedule it for $25. Two days before we left I called a...

This place is a gem. The staff are exceptionally nice and really make an effort with everybody. Rooms are clean and practical and well equipped. Location is good, relatively central while still enjoying quiet nights. Maggie is an absolute star.

One block from the beach, this is a hip/fun and super-clean motel. Zany beach decor and two pools add to fun. Staff very accommodating...special shout to front desk guy Dominic who was very helpful and friendly.

We stayed at The Aqua Hotel for one night after our cruise. I picked the hotel for our group based on its location and price. Given the start of spring break, hotel prices were higher than we expected. The manager, Maggie, and her assistant Dominic were both extremely nice and helpful - loved her sense of humor as well. The...

The Aqua is a lovely hotel nicely located at North beach village in Ft Lauderdale. Has a lovely swimming pool and great restaurants within walking distance. One of the only criticism I have of the place is that parking is not included in the price which I reckon should be included.

Another wonderful, relaxing stay at The Aqua Hotel. A big thank you to Maggie and the great staff. The hotel is always so clean and the garden area is beautiful. Great beach location. I will never stay anywhere else in Fort Lauderdale. Will be back in a couple months. Nancy C.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Why are AQUA’s reviews so excellent? Is it that North Beach Village’s boutique hotels are located in an extraordinary area of Fort Lauderdale beach that’s perfect for kids and fun-loving adults? Or is it that AQUA’s concierge-like services ensure happiness? Could it be our sandy beaches a few minutes’ walk away or how our heated pools induce laughter? Maybe it’s our incredibly reasonable rates for modernized suites with flat-screens, kitchens and Wi-Fi included? Yes – families revisit us for these details and many more! From golden beaches and turquoise waters to the winding Intracoastal Waterways – AQUA’s at the heart of a lush barrier island. Our tropical ambiance and 322 days of Caribbean sunshine also adds to AQUA’s success – plus we’re minutes from Fort Lauderdale’s world-class airport, cruises, shops, nightlife, entertainment and restaurants.
