Our greeting upon arrival was awesome. Al made us feel he hadn't seen us in ages when we had actually never met. So it's nice to have such a warm welcome! He took us all around the property and then took us to our room. He also suggested places to dine and arranged a drive to our cruise. Location of...

We were there February 23rd to the 29th 2016 and it was simply amazing! The place was clean and the property was well managed. We normally stay at the high rises and this was a new found experience. The staff was very accommodating and we absolutely adored Miss Maggie and Dominick. They were so helpful and immediately made us feel...

The Aqua is a great option for Lauderdale, about 2 blocks off the beach. Great location within walking distance of the main drag and good restaurants (some at nearby hotels); a water taxi stop is maybe 15 minutes away, and you can pick up the Sun Trolley on the beach road. Smallish (350 sq ft for king bedroom) but adequate...

We stayed here for a week. It was fine, but in our opinion, is very overrated. There were at least two (relatively easy to fix) issues that were significant. First, the Wifi was terrible -- basically dial-up speed and it did not even connect much of the time. When I called the helpline number to ask about it one evening,...

We stayed in room #2109, a fairly small studio on ground level. Upon arrival Maggie, at the front desk met us & was quite welcoming & delightful. We very much enjoy her & her hospitality.

Contemporary hotel in heart of Lauderdale Beach. One bkock from the ocean and walkable to bars, dining, fishing charters, etc. Water taxis close by for a Las Olas Blvd. stroll. Two small, but refreshing saline pools. Rooms are looking a little worn, but you can't beat location! No car needed if staying for a long weekend. Quick $25 Uber/ cab...

This was a great location with easy access to both the airport and Port of Everglades. It was also very close to the beach and walking distance to restaurants.
