Wow!!! I cannot say enough positive words about this resort. My husband and I are having a baby in March and decided to do a babymoon. We chose Miami, a place we normally would not vacation, for the weather and proximity to good hospitals just in case :) A co-worker recommended Aqualina and it did not disappoint!! I arrived before...

I stayed at this hotel along with some family members during New years Eve. While the resort advertises as some of the finest establishments in the world I find this to be a little bit overboard compared to my experience. The hotel is a little bit dark and the decoration can seem a little bit too classic or not as...

From the minute your car pulls up until you leave, this is a luxurious spot. Check in with champagne always works and a tour of the property helps you get your bearings. Once you're settled it's down to the pools and beach. Three pools to choose from, just follow the sun, and the beach is grand. The grill bar has...

Acqualina is a beautiful hotel. It's a bit pretentious on entry (yeah, we get it, some of your customers drive Rolls Royces, thanks for lining the driveway with them, and yeah, we get that you're going for Mediterranean palazzo, but it's a bit fussy) but undeniably attractive. I recognize that it's a matter of taste, but it was a little...
