We stayed at The Aqua Hotel for one night after our cruise. I picked the hotel for our group based on its location and price. Given the start of spring break, hotel prices were higher than we expected. The manager, Maggie, and her assistant Dominic were both extremely nice and helpful - loved her sense of humor as well.

The Aqua is a lovely hotel nicely located at North beach village in Ft Lauderdale. Has a lovely swimming pool and great restaurants within walking distance. One of the only criticism I have of the place is that parking is not included in the price which I reckon should be included.

Another wonderful, relaxing stay at The Aqua Hotel. A big thank you to Maggie and the great staff. The hotel is always so clean and the garden area is beautiful. Great beach location. I will never stay anywhere else in Fort Lauderdale. Will be back in a couple months. Nancy C.

enjoyed this one nighter as we came off a cruise liner from the Carribean. The hotel was clean and the people were very friendly. We arrived late at night and left early in the morning to go to Miami Beach . I took a quick swim in the smiling pool and walked to the beach which was only a few... More

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!

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 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... More

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,... More
