NorthBeachVillage, Owner at The Aqua Hotel, responded to this review

letitia, Thanks so much for your review. During turtle nesting season, it's important that the lights are turned off so the turtles don't go into the street. However, we can assure you this is a very safe area, and we also have 24/7 security that patrols the Village. We appreciate you choosing Aqua and hope to see you again soon!

Our stay back in November at this hotel was great. The weather did not cooperate so we did not use the pool. However, everyone who works here are wonderful and helpful. The rooms were great and clean. Price was reasonable also. Couldn't have picked a more pleasant place to stay in Fort Lauderdale. Would definitely stay here again. Great location...

We stayed here for two nights in May. We have been to Fort Lauderdale a dozen times, and we usually stay at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale on the beach. This hotel is located directly behind the Hilton, and one block off the beach. We were not disappointed. Upon check-in Maggie greeted us very pleasantly. She was very accommodating! The room...

I rented a queen studio for 3 nights that was quite small, but spotless, and just the right size for 1 person (maybe 2 if you really love the person you're traveling with!). The decor is bright and beachy, there's a coffee maker and fridge, free wifi, and a wardrobe with a hanging organizer. My bathroom had a walk in...

travelishealing, Thanks so much for your review. Unfortunately, the health department does not allow us to have microwaves in room types that do not have a secondary sink. However, we do have room types that have microwaves and full kitchens. We are so happy that you stayed with us and hope that you're able to visit us again soon!

Our room was very nice inside. Good for staying for a while since there is a good size kitchenette. However, the outside surfaces appeared old and didn't give a nice feel upon entering. It is also most like a motel than a hotel, though that is nicer in the heat because you can easily step outside to catch some sun....

lisaacson1, Thanks for your review. Isn't it great to walk out of your room and right into one of the two pools at Aqua? We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay, and we hope that you'll visit us again soon. Whenever those Boston winters get too cold, you can come warm up with us! Take care, NBV

We based our decision on this particular hotel solely on trip advisor reviews. We were looking for a value priced small hotel near the water and suitable for easy access from the airport and to the cruise terminals. The Aqua met those criteria and was a couple blocks from many eating options. The Atlantic Hotel offered great dining just a...

The first impression we got of the hotel was Maggie welcoming us with a huge smile and a booming voice at the front door. This hotel is a treasure. Very clean, very quiet. Two small pools but comfortable. Lots of lounge and sitting space around the property- we picked up food and enjoyed it on the 2nd floor terrace. A...

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
