We stayed one night pre cruise, there were 5 of us ( all ladies) and to keep costs down were prepared to share one big room. I pre booked the hotel months before and whilst travelling my husband noticed we'd be put in an upstairs room. Knowing we had my elderly mum with us and our heavy cases he emailed...

Hit it off immediately with the Manager! She texted me when our room was ready! Beautiful retro style Boutique Hotel. Our room was gigantic. 2 king beds, full kitchen, dining area, lounging area and bath. There are 2 pools on site. My only regret is that we were only there for one day! The next time I get to Fort...

This little jewel of a place sparkles and beckons you to relax and forget your worries. One truly feels to be on vacation. Good parking and short walk to the white sandy beach. The rooms are as presented in these pictures. Our room felt newly updated, clean with comfortable furniture and linens. Little noise filters thru the windows that have...

this place is located 2 blocks from the beach. Far enough away from the maddening crowd of Fort Lauderdale's night clubs...but close enough to walk. It is unfortunate to see all the very large "resorts" going up around such quaint small boutique hotels in the area. The massive four seasons hotel is going up right in front of it. But...

The hotel is nice and clean. I think the first night we stayed there we may have been the only people since it was the down season. The room was nice and big. The only down side was the air conditioning was too loud to leave on overnight so it got quite hot. The hotel was two blocks from the...

The Aqua is boutique size, a place that seems to date from the 1950s, but wears its age well, and obviously is well-maintained. There are two two-story buildings, a courtyard and two small pools that serve their purpose. The best quality of the Aqua is its location: a block from the beach. A most pleasant beach, too, with white sand,...

My room was good sized and on the second floor. The problem was the AC had not been cleaned for a long time and the floor was slimy/sticky but looked clean. I hope they clean everything until the next guests arrive. The internet was also very very slow comparable ti a dialup ISDN.

We stayed at Aqua for a night before our cruise, and it was exactly what we were looking for... convenient, affordable, clean, friendly staff, and close to the beach. Maggie was extremely helpful and outgoing, which was very nice. We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to Ft Lauderdale!
