Aqualina Resort is truly a special hotel. We have traveled a lot in the Caribbean and Europe and I have high standards for accommodations. For our trip in the fall I looked extensively for resorts in South Florida and the Caribbean to find the perfect vacation experience for my family (8 year old son). After speaking to Igor in the...

If I could rate this resort higher than a 5 I most definitely would. The resort grounds are beautiful and the service is impeccable. I cannot rave enough to truly describe how wonderful we were treated from the time we arrived until our departure. Phaibien took excellent care of us on the beach and at the pool, Kamille and Claudyna...

I stayed here following the suggestion of a good friend of mine, 4 nights in total. Too bad I was there for business and I could not enjoy more this wonderful property. It was the first time I never felt like leaving the hotel. Great rooms and suites, breath taking view over the ocean, swimming pools, restaurants, SPA (never saw...

We spent a terrific two days at the Acqualina. Check-in was warm and friendly -- and the complimentary champagne was a nice touch. LHW membership usually gets us early check-in -- it was a pity that we couldn't get into our hotel room until about 4:00 pm. The room itself was spacious and pleasantly decorated. The terrace -- with table...

The Resort is amazing. Usually the service is very good. The ocean is beautiful and the pools are amazing. The restaurants are very good and the room service is awesome. The only thing to be careful about: the residents have the right to use the facilities and they let the kids by themselves on the pool and common areas. The...

We booked based on fabulous reviews. The reviews were accurate. However, we were not expecting the traffic, construction and commotion. The property is lovely. The service is great. The food at the pool and beach is very limited. The pool is also quite small. However, it was adequate for the number of guests there. It's a very nice crowd. There's...
