The first clue you are at a luxury hotel are the cars in the lot - Rolls, Lamborghini, and more! The staff is professional, helpful and friendly. Frederick, the concierge, sent us to all great restaurants. The room is spacious, and beautiful. They are accommodating with

Really am hesitant to post a review.... Will cause more people to come here. Enjoyed a brilliant 5 day stay during December 2018. The resort is gorgeous. The food is terrific - upgraded to the breakfast inclusive, which was huge, varied and very good. The service is

Hello, my husband and I have been staying here for many many years and there have always been building going on with the expansion. I can't say it bothers me much. You can hear building stuff to some extent on the beach but I guess it can't bother me much if I keep coming back, right? The worst part would be living in a condo unit on the end where you see it going on all day long. Then you get to experience the building as it progresses to the point where they are eye level to you. Guests will never experience that staying in the center part of the tower for the resort. Acqualina has been reviewed by Forbes for several years in a row now and they continue to get 5 Stars so there is really no better answer for you I suppose.

Hi there.. we were there in September and there was a bit of construction next door, yes. You could hear it if you were sitting at the adult pool. However, the pool staff brought around complimentary cocktails every hour and apologized for the noise. Honestly, it wasn't bad at all. I would not let this stop you from going..

Is it all inclusive ?
Not AI and pricey place to have all your meals. Lots of options in the area.
