Spent a couple of nights here prior to a cruise 3 years ago, and always wanted to return. We booked another cruise this year and as soon as the cruise was booked, I reserved rooms at this wonderful small hotel. It was as good as I had remembered. The staff were very courteous and helpful (especially when the van we...

We stayed at The Aqua Hotel for one night, post-cruise. We only wish we could have stayed longer! This is a "boutique" hotel, which in this case seems to mean a retro property that has been updated and modernized. Many (perhaps all) of the rooms seem to open directly into a central courtyard with a pool. It is a very...

I made a reservation at this hotel for me and my parents. We booked double queen studio with a kitchen. Three days before my reservation I confirmed my reservation within the hotel and they said everything was ok. As soon as I got at the hotel, I was informed that the room I have booked months ago was not available....

All the great reviews about Maggie and the staff are true, as well as the hotel being wonderful!! The room was clean and spacious. The appliances and furniture were of excellent quality, the king size bed was very comfortable and I loved the aqua beach theme of the room. We even had a balcony and ocean view!! The hotel and...

I thought this was a great little place in a good location. very clean, comfortable beds, self catering, decent T.V and swimming pool areas. It was in a quiet part of town but very close to bars, restaurants and beaches.

Great week at the Aqua, which never disappoints - clean retro-chic rooms, helpful and friendly staff, two nice small pools, and a nice quiet location a block from the beach and a few minutes from nightlife and restaurants (note the Village Cafe owned by the Aqua's parent company virtually next door, which does great breakfasts). The Aqua is dwarfed in...

What a find, needed a room the night before our cruise. Got a great rate and the room and area are amazing. The room is like an apartment, no kidding I could live here it's huge, clean, easy walk to the beach, shops, restaurants. It's a little piece of heaven. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Will be back...

Aqua is extremely well situated near the beautiful beach. Just a minute's walk! It's got a somewhat cool Art Decoish style to it. It made me think of these motels you see in the movies from the 50's. The rooms are well equipped (could be some more glasses though)and all overlooking a nice swimmingpool. The manager, Maggie, is very dynamic...

On a business trip with my husband...stayed 3 nights. We had a suite with a King bed. Fairly roomy but also fairly spartan. Had all you would need....not real fancy. Cost wise was much cheaper than the bigger hotel chains close by. Beach just two blocks away. Decor is whimsical with pictures on walls splashed with a bit of aqua...

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.
