Our stay was good but not great. We have stayed at the Aqua before and wanted to return. The previous time, they had beach chairs and bikes. Both are no longer available. The rooms are spacious and clean. The pool had good seating but was not heated and was too cold for swimming. There were a couple things that irked...

The Aqua is a small, unpretentious hotel. At first I thought I might want a different room: ours was on the ground floor, directly facing the pool and very near the office. I was wrong! We were never disturbed by either pool or office; one evening we sat outside of our room for a late-night drink and saw/heard no one...

We had a very large suite, 2 pools, just 1 block up from the beach. But, you need a car to get to where all the restaurants are. Next to the hotel are several first class hotels and their facilities. Parking outside 10 US$/day.

We stayed at the Aqua for one pre-cruise and one post-cruise night. This property is one of many such vintage properties in the "North Beach Village". Rooms have been updated and it looks like the upgrading is ongoing. Maggie is the manager and goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. The only drawback is that the hotel...

Although the property is off the main street, we had a beautiful view of the ocean. The hotel is clean and modern and had all the amenities you will need. Maggie was terrific and helped us out with all of our questions and requests.

What more can I say than crisp, clean, and refreshing! Nice place to relax a block off the beach! We found the service very accommodating and the aesthetics characteristic if the Southern Florida experience we have come to expect. Two pools are an added bonus as well as comfortable outdoor space! We will be back soon!

We stayed here over mlk weekend in a 1 bedroom suite. Everything was clean and modern and we appreciated the stocked kitchen and proximity to the beach. Parking was $10 per day and was ample. A shout out to Maggie who made our stay comfortable.

My partner and I stayed at the aqua hotel for one night before a cruise. The hotel is quite, and clean. It is mostly outdoor (walking paths not hallways). It was a little difficult to bring our luggage in because we had to roll it through grass but it was manageable. Parking overnight was $10 I think. There were two...

I was in Ft Lauderdale for 2 nights as the last destination of my 14-days trip around Florida and Bahamas. So this was the last hotel I experienced on this trip and absolutely got me disappointed. The room was extremely small, the bed absolutely not comfortable with a way too soft mattress, the toilet didn't work properly and the bathroom...
