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. Maggie was the reason we enjoyed our stay so much, she is very customer focused and provided great service. She helped us with transportation and restaurant selections. She was very attentive...

On our family vacation we stayed two nights at the hotel. We had chosen the hotel based on its good internet ratings. Unfortunately I'm very disappointed. We arrived late Saturday and found no reception but an office we an intercom to request service. Waited 30 minutes and had to carry our luggage up three floors via a narrow staircase. Internet...

My wife and I stayed here with our 14 month-old daughter for six nights. We were delighted with the place in every way. It is clean and comfortable and the location is perfect. Maggie, Domenic, Al and all the staff could not have been more helpful.

this renovated boutique hotel just two blocks off the beach is a charming place to visit. We spent two days post cruise here without a car and it was very enjoyable. First, there is a cafe only 1 block away that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Second, there is a short 1 block to the beach where you can sunbathe...

We visit Ft. Lauderdale often, sometimes for a couple weeks at a time. If you like to make your own meals the Suites are a good option. The rooms are fresh and the furnishings are clean and stylish. The staff is the best we have found anywhere. There are a lot of sad hotels in Ft. Lauderdale, and I think...

The Aqua Hotel is located one block from the beach and all the best restaurants. People are very nice and arranged for a town car to take us to the cruise port. The room was comfortable and very clean. Nice place for the money.

We spent four nights at the Aqua Hotel in Fort Lauderdale and had a great experience. The property is one of many owned by the chain but it is operated like a small hotel. The staff is particularly helpful. Maggie and Dominick were the primary people who assisted us during out stay. The room was clean and cozy, all white...

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. Imagine – rejuvenating family beach picnics, water taxi rides to chic Las Olas or thrilling watersport adventures!AQUA’s 39 spacious rooms – studios, suites and penthouses – have a refreshing, beachy décor.
