We stayed a couple nights for my birthday. We are locals that were looking for a little staycation. When I arrived, the staff sang me happy birthday in the office! Everyone from front desk to the maids were really really awesome. The hotel is super cute, the rooms had everything you needed to stay for an extended period of time....

We always stay there when in Ft Lauderdale. It's a friendly, cosy and quiet hotel close to the center and the beach. The rooms are nice and clean, the personnel is really friendly and caters for all your needs. There is even free parking. I can really recommend this hotel.

We loved everything about this hotel. From the cleanliness to the comfortable beds to the decor But I must say we were so well taken care of by Vanessa the young lady at the front desk. Friendly and informative. Memorial weekend is not easy when it comes to parking situation but Vanessa made it happen in a short period and...

location was good. Parking tight. no restaurant on site. small pools. check in was a little slow. large size room. would return to this hotel. Compared to another hotel that we stayed at on this vacation I think this was a better deal than a more known & larger hotel chain.

Nicely designed, modern, cool interiors, two pools, walk to the beach. Maggie was the best and took very good care of my partner and me. Restaurants are nearby. Enjoy the small village feel of the neighborhood before the tall buildings invade.

Great value - 1 block from beach. Even had grills and tables in a grassy area you could use. Small hotel - staff was not always in office - seemed to be multiple places under common ownership. Older building with recent rehab - smaller windows which my wife doesn't like, but clean and inexpensive.

My girlfriend and I just stayed here for our one year anniversary and it was wonderful! Maggie the guest services manager was so accommodating and made the stay great helping me set up the room with rose pedals, chocolate, champagne and wine to surprise my girlfriend when we walked in. The hotel itself was just off the beach and only...

This place offers good value for money when compared to its hotel neighbours the Conrad, Hilton et al. However be aware that although this place is well located, with on-site parking, exceptionally clean rooms with modern decor, very helpful staff and the most efficient air-con I have ever used, IT IS NOT A HOTEL. There is no bar, no restaurant,...

The Aqua Hotel is a wonderful example of why it is best to keep some of old Ft Lauderdal hotels. The rooms are modern and well appointed, with mini kitchens. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We were there during the Air and Sea show so they were very busy.
