My family has vacationed at the Acqualina for several years, and it never fails to please. It is truly our home away from home. The newly refurbished rooms are utterly phenomenal! We felt like royalty in our 2 bedroom suite on the 17th floor. Yet the true beauty of the hotel lies in its staff members. That's what keeps us...

Spent five delightful days at this resort and can't recall staff at any hotel as interested in the well being of the guests as are at the Acqualina. Accommodations were wonderful; restaurant first rate. spa serene and top of the line. Would go back in a nano-second!

We wanted to get away from New England in late January and needed a place that was good for us and our almost-two-year-old toddler. Acqualina was exactly that! For our toddler, we needed a place that had a good/safe beach setup, kid pools, and potential a kids club or babysitting service. This place had it all. They have a mini...

I was a participant in a business conference that was held in the Acqualina. Compared to many such conferences I attended in recent years (mostly in the best hotels in New York City) this was no doubt the best. The proximity to the Ocean (300 feet), the beautiful hotel with a fantastic close view of the ocean made it a...

Wow!!! I cannot say enough positive words about this resort. My husband and I are having a baby in March and decided to do a babymoon.

I stayed at this hotel along with some family members during New years Eve. While the resort advertises as some of the finest establishments in the world I find this to be a little bit overboard compared to my experience.
