Ft Lauderdale is a city filled with gorgeous, high end hotels that carry a high end price tag. This small, quaint hotel with an Art Deco vibe provides a great location and comfortable accommodations at a lower price compared to the chains around it including Hilton and the W. The pool areas (there are two) are comfortable and offer nice...

I went back and forth on whether to rate this a 3 or a 4. The rooms are large--my guess is they used to be apartments--with a sitting room, kitchenette with table and chairs, separate bedroom and full bath. Lots of storage. The room is light and airy, but the tile floors were cleaned with something that was a little...

We stayed two nights before the cruise with our 2 year old. It was great to have the king suite so that there was plenty of room. We had a cute view of the pool. The ocean was a short walk away. And just an uber away to the port!

We choose Aqua based on its reviews and it did not disappoint! It has a great location, beautiful rooms and pools, but what made this an amazing experience was the staff. EVERY staff memeber was friendly and helpful with great suggestion for places to go...especially Maggie!! We loved it so much we booked a family trip before we even checked...

Very well run, clean, comfortable boutique hotel, a 30-seconds walk from the beach. They surprised us with a free upgraded room, as I had mentioned in making the reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion.

We spent two nights here and would return. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed comfortable. It was very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is one block from the beach and within walking distance of a lot of restaurants and bars.

The Aqua Hotel was great! Inexpensive parking ($10/night), very clean, cute design, quiet, nice pool, polite and helpful staff, and most importantly, only 2 blocks from the beach! Only negatives I can say is that the wifi didn't work well (I didn't care as we were on vacation and not there to check email or anything, plus our data plan...

We have stayed here twice before and were happy with the hotel. This time NOT so much. The room wasn't very clean. There were simple things that would have made a HUGE difference (too many to mention). The location is GREAT and Maggie is the BEST! Sadly, too many issues with the room for me to consider using this hotel...
