This place offers good value for money when compared to its hotel neighbours the Conrad, Hilton et al. However be aware that although this place is well located, with on-site parking, exceptionally clean rooms with modern decor, very helpful staff and the most efficient air-con I have ever used, IT IS NOT A HOTEL. There is no bar, no restaurant,...

The Aqua Hotel is a wonderful example of why it is best to keep some of old Ft Lauderdal hotels. The rooms are modern and well appointed, with mini kitchens. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We were there during the Air and Sea show so they were very busy.

By reading the rave reviews we thought it was going to be perfect! Extremely disappointed in our stay from start to finish. The room was not clean at all. I dont think they gave reliable staff. I will say its not far from beach only plus in my book. Will pick another hotel next time.

I did my research(so I thought) before making my reservation at the Aqua Hotel. The price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. I guess it's true you get what you pay for. When we checked into our room(king suite) it smelled like smoke, if your not a smoker you know what I am talking about. My 82...

Great Value! Very romantic! We fell in love with the Aqua so much we keep returning for the best spring vacations ever. The staff are wonderful, the two pools are warm and clean. One block from the beach in a safe, trendy Art Deco neighborhood. The large single bedroom suite gives us privacy from the kids, and the full kitchenette...

Stayed at the Aqua Hotel for 2 nights before our cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. We chose this location based on the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. The place is excellent - rooms are very spacious, clean, excellent showers, small kitchen in room and a safe. Two excellent pools which we used quite a bit and very helpful staff (Maggie)....

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Aqua Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like welcome guests. We weren’t just checked in, we were given a tour to ensure we knew all there was to see. Maggie, the manager for most of our stay, made us feel very welcome and made...

I love this hotel!! The hotel is very comfortable. Its 2 blocks away from the beach and they have stores in walking distance. They also have a nice restaurant around the corner. Maggie was great!! Just love her!! She made our stay wonderful. Cant wait to go back!

Close to the action but far away enough to escape. Great place to stay. Small and quaint. Not like the big mega hotels. May not be for everyone but we'd go back again. Not on the Ocean but in short walking distance.

Maggie was extremely helpful and made us feel right at home. Great location, clean and well maintained grounds. Pool was warm and salt water to boot. Friendly staff. Rooms were updated and modern. We rarely stay at boutique hotels, but staying here changed our mind. We would definitely stay here again. Planning our next trip now.

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.
