This was our family's third stay at the Acqua Hotel. The place never disappoints. From the clean, spacious rooms to the views... perfect every time! The convenience of location just can't be beat- just off the highway and near to restaurants and shops (at the Strawberry Village down the road). We look forward to breakfast every morning and the cookies... More

This Christmas we decided to treat ourselves and enjoy a relaxing time at a hotel. We had the junior suite with a view of Mt Tam from our balcony. The room was clean and comfy. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. They had everything from bacon& eggs to waffles. The front desk personnel were so helpful in planning our stay. Bicycles... More

We booked a junior suite at this hotel for our wedding day. We used the charming lobby with its fireplace for a champagne toast after the ceremony, and the front desk staff gave us some small boxes of delicious chocolates!

After a terrible experience at another hotel in the area, we were placed in the Acqua Hotel during the busy period between Christmas and New Years. We entered into the lobby exhausted and irritated, with two tired kids in tow and honestly were just looking for a bed for the night. Were we ever surprised! We had some of the... More

We stayed at Acqua while attending North Face Challenge. The rooms were very nice and had a boutique feel. Only problem with room was the heat/air. We were able to keep our door open but not when sleeping since we were on first floor. The grounds were very calm and nice and our patio was a nice addition. Breakfast was... More

I would like to compliment two excellent employees, Judy and Wendy. Both went to great lengths to help me. They did everything in their might to tailor and meet my specific needs.

We came here unannounced, having decided to make an early departure from the accommodation we had originally booked (a lodge in Tiburon). Treading more carefully than before, we asked to see a selection of rooms. All were attractive and water facing, not unduly noisy (given the nearby freeway) and very clean. We chose the middle of the range option, and... More

Fantastic friendly service. Large, comfortable rooms with great beds. Nicely located. I would give it a 5 if there was a bar or restaurant, that's the only thing missing. They do serve a great breakfast though, it's hot and complimentary. There are good restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.
