My husband and I stayed here for one night after a busy 9 days spent between Key West and Ft. Lauderdale with 13 other people so we were looking forward to a little peace and quiet. The Aqua fit the bill. While it is a smaller, older hotel it is located within easy walking distance of a beautiful beach and...

This place was perfect for us! Our room was clean, nice sized and convenient to everything. The pool was warm and salt water, which was a cool feature. They offer complimentary towels, beach chairs and beach toys for the kids. With all the major chain hotels in the area choose from, which we have stayed at them all, we would...

Our King Suite was more of a standard suite, we have stayed in many suites and double rooms. This was more like 1 room sectioned off into bathroom and lounge/kitchenette. 2 small electric rings and microwave/oven (which I could not reach)! Only used 2 teaspoons and 2 cups which had to be washed 1st as they were sticky! Very noisy...

Everything about this Boutique hotel was charming. From the time we arrived a until check out the staff and accommodations were excellent! Maggie and her staff were friendly, informative and helpful. The ocean sunrise was spectacular and only steps from our room. A 6 person trolley passes by the hotel every few minutes and was instrumental in helping me get...

My third time visiting this beautiful hotel, located a block from the beach and a few minutes' walk from a wide choice of bars and restaurants, but also in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood. Once again everything was spotless, the pools were great to relax beside (and in!) and as always the staff, led by Maggie, were super-helpful and...

The hotel's manager, Maggie, was wonderful from the minute we checked in until the day we checked out! The hotel is located a few minutes from the beach and a ton of restaurants, bars and stores. Our room was very clean and we particularly enjoyed the 2 pools. Highly recommend this small, but great property!

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
