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...

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...

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...

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...

do not stay at this hotel. VERY expensive for a tiny room, hard as a rock bed, dirty floors and ants. terrible customer service. when we complained about the dirty floors and ants to the "manager," ( I was told she was "technically" the manager, not even sure what that means), she was immediately argumentative and defensive. No apologies, only...

We picked this hotel at the last minute for the last two days of our trip. I knew as soon as we got our room right NEXT to the check-in office and gate that there was going to be trouble, but there were other aspects that were good. Good (actually great): * Location, very close to the beach * Clean...

The location is pretty good..walk to the beach...our room was expensive for what we got but more importantly the room was not clean. The decorative silk Aqua pillow on the bed was totally stained on the back...gross..there were lots of ants in the bathroom and on the counter in the bedroom area...the floor was gritty and dirty.

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!

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.
