Excellent renovated property in a great area blocks from dozens of restaurants and a short block from the beach. The manager, Maggie, is all about customer service and is very friendly and fun. Our room had a minor technical problem which Maggie had repaired in 60 minutes. The room was clean, modern and comfortable. The two pools were clean, warm...

Everything about Aqua was great! The staff, location and pools. Maggie was the head of a group of people who know how to be hospitable. She taught them well! Aqua is located about a block from the beach and walking distance to restaurants of all kinds. Cannot wait to go back to the Aqua for more fun in the sun.

We travel a lot and although I try to keep current with my listings that often just isn't possible and so some of them may seem dated but as long as they are within a year or so for hotels or six months for restaurants I have no hesitation as things don't normally change that quickly.

We came and had three rooms at the beginning of March, and I miss it so much already. With a three year old in a hotel only a stone's through from the beach, I was expecting it to be quite hard work, but was massively wrong. The rooms are incredibly comfortable with all the things we needed to fix up...

jacqlynnToronto, What a great review, thanks! While we do have a Village Cafe, located just one block away from Aqua, we do not have a restaurant on site.

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. Imagine – rejuvenating family beach picnics, water taxi rides to chic Las Olas or thrilling watersport adventures!AQUA’s 39 spacious rooms – studios, suites and penthouses – have a refreshing, beachy décor. We never charge resort fees, or for coffee or beach views. Recharge your inner holiday and book AQUA. ... more   less
