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... More

This is one of our favorite spots. We were so happy to see that Maggie was still here. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The pools are warm and sunny. Location is great and it is so close to the beach. Honestly the main reason we came back was because of the service. Maggie is Wonderful!!

Beautifully renovated, spotless, and perfectly located only one block from Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard, The Aqua Hotel was a memorable and excellent choice for our last night in Florida. The rooms are spacious and bright, with private patios or views of the beach (2nd floor). Michael and his cheerful staff conscientiously attended to our every need. We thoroughly enjoyed our...

We chose this hotel because it had great reviews and was in a good location. Well the latter was great but we found it to be poorly serviced and the standard of hygiene patchy and not acceptable. Our first cleaner was in our suite less than two minutes. The next day the floor was swept and left considerably dirtier than... More

I can't say enough good things about the Aqua. Maggie and Dominic in the office are top notch and made me feel super welcome. My room was spacious, modernly decorated, and immaculately maintained, which is saying something since the primary color is white. The location is one block from the ocean but just off the main strip (A1A), so you... More

Checked in was very easy. Arrived mid afternoon and Maggie who is super friendly and cheerful gave us her business card and recommended a restaurant very close to the hotel (half a block) and we got a free margarita with lunch. Went for a walk on the beach which is only 2 blocks away and close to other restaurants. The... More

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. We never charge resort fees, or for coffee or beach views. Recharge your inner holiday and book AQUA. ... more   less
