This is the first time I visited Sunny Isles Beach and hopefully it won't be the last. The Acqualina is a beautiful resort. The hotel is located right on the beach.

This resort is really fantastic. The rooms and the service are just stellar. See my previous review for details. While there is some noise from the construction of the condo building, we could not hear it in our room and it did not bother us on the beach. We will definitely be back again.
