We've been staying at Aqua for three years now two sometimes three times a year. Aqua never disapoints. It's a two and three floor hotel located two blocks from beach at Northbeach which is a quiet neighborhood but just a short walk to the restaurants near Las Olas Blvd and A1A. The rooms and a apartments are pretty big, airy,...

We just came back from our 4th stay at the Aqua. This is a nice boutique hotel that offers great service to their guests. Especially Maggie whom we now consider a friend of our family ! The rooms are comfortable and clean. The location is just a block from the beach and the ocean front restaurants. The hotel has two...

This small hotel has all exterior rooms facing one of two pool courtyards. Renovated in an art deco style, the rooms are sleek and very functional. Our room had a small kitchen complete with utensils. The beach is a short walk away as are restaurants. The staff were very nice upon check in. We had to wait for our room...

We stayed at the Aqua the night before and the night after our cruise. Arrived early in the day, and were welcomed by Maggie, who graciously stored our luggage, and showed us around the hotel.

Just checked out of the Aqua a few hours ago so I'm writing this with a fresh perspective. The hotel is a block or so from the waterfront set among the increasing number of high rise condos and hotel. It's a refreshing change from big, impersonal places, recently renovated with a modern deco touch. We stayed in a 2nd floor...

It's very difficult to know how good a hotel is from such a distance. However with the Aqua hotel we really had no need to worry. It is an excellent hotel.

My girlfriend and I had a great time at Aqua for 2 nights. The hotel is very hip, clean and in a great location, i.e. close to beach, restaurants, the W and water taxi pickup. We liked the area as the older, boutique hotels felt like a step back in time amidst all the high rises. We compared Aqua to...

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.
