It's really hard to find a hotel like this in Miami. Everything is spectacular in every single aspect. The rooms are real luxury in every way: Bathroom, beds, space, views. The service is superb. The pool is very nice and quiet. The restaurant that is on the beach has a very good menu, and I strongly suggest the Ahi Tuna,...

I have checked out all 5 star resorts in Florida over the last few years including all the Ritz, W and four seasons.

Considered this and another luxury property in Bal Harbour, but opted for the Acqualina, partly due its central location to both Aventura and Bal Harbour , but mostly based on the numerous comments about the hotel personnel.
