Small, small, small room.

Posted Mar 21, 2014
Pros: The bed was very comfortable. Walking distance to beach. The cleaning staff was excellent.
Cons: Do not express their views of expedia.
Location: Beach, walking board walk, shopping and dining.
We booked expedia which we always do with no problems. When we arrived at 2:10 we were told our room was ready but since we booked expedia we would have to wait until 3:00 for the key or pay $25.00. We booked a king but they kept telling us since we booked expedia they only offer queen but they had upgraded up to a king...wrong. We had our paperwork showing KING. They told us we should never book expedia. We explained we would have never known about their hotel if we hadn't booked expedia. We were made to feel very low class because we were expedia customers. The room was only large enough for one person. You couldn't open the bathroom door with the refrigerator door open. One of us would have to sit while the other was up so we would not bump into each other.

Very nice Retro Hotel.

Posted Feb 23, 2014
Pros: It was a throw back to the old motels from the 1940-60's that you used to stay in as a kid. However, it is all updated, so no yellow countertops :).
Cons: Parking
Location: Many bars and restaurants and the beach is 2 blocks away (or less)
As we stayed only 1 night, the price was right even though the room was rather small in size. They have 2 pools and efficiency units available. It was within walking distance to restaurants and bars. If you are planning on staying more than 1 night, I would recommend asking about room sizes when booking and pay more.

A pre cruise hotel and post cruise for me.

Posted Feb 18, 2014
Pros: Clean modern, everything you could need, even basic cooking facilities. Lovely grounds, clean safe pools. Loved the staff, so friendly and kind.
Cons: Area is being generally improved. This did not effect my stay at all. Hotel is a lovely FAMILY orientated hotel.
Location: Macy's and the galleria shopping centre were a short walk away. Beach 5 mins walk, lots of places to eat and drink and enjoy. Head south for more
Lovely staff, friendly people, loved Fort Lauderdale. Front desk staff will go out of their way to help you as best as possible. Will definitely consider Aqua and the other North Beach Resort Hotels again. Was able to also use the facilities in the other hotels.

Very nice updated motel

Posted Jan 13, 2014
Room was a little small but clean and nicely decorated and from the looks of it recently remodeled. Dissapointed in the wifi not working and even after mentioning it to staff on first day, and told they would call their internet "guy" . After 3 nights (plenty of time to resolve the issue) no follow up and no opology...still didnt work. I was very dissapointed because i had some work to catch up on and couldnt :(

Go ahead and Book

From the moment we arrived and 6 days later when we left we had a great stay at the Aqua. Maggie, Andrew and the other office staff are 1st class, they are so friendly and can't do enough for you. The rooms are very clean, the beds are comfy, and we heard no noise at night. The hotel is only 1 block from the beach and a short walk to the shops and restaurants and the area felt safe to be in at night. We will book the Aqua hotel when we go to Fort Lauderdale again. Thanks again Maggie and team . Allan & Jackie

Quirky, but very nice hotel

Posted Jan 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a broken window in our room, but Andrew switched us to another room quickly. It was even better! While we had a few minor problems which were fixed quickly, overall this hotel surpassed our needs, and was very clean. We enjoyed our stay. The set-up of the 1-bedroom suite is very nice. My son (22) was with us, so having him on the sofa bed in the living room worked very well. I wish the bathroom was just a bit larger and that the door lock was more security appropriate. The hotel is close both to the Bonnet House which we really enjoyed and the beach which was great too. The office has no phone number for you to call, but all the employees who work there are very nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

Great experience.

The good reviews I read about Aqua were accurate. The hotel is clean and location is excellent. Maggie was very pleasant and extremely helpful. I would recommend a small gym, but that is my taste. Alongside the beach is a great place to jog.

An amazing hotel, with wonderful, caring staff

Posted Dec 12, 2013
Pros: What's not to like. Aqua should be a well kept secret!! Oh. And did I mention the free parking. Shelley went out of her way to help us. Maggie also.
Cons: New property, done with class. Wonderful staff. How do you improve on this....
Location: Prime location, one block from the beach. Blocks from Los Olas and Sunset. Walk to bars and restaurants.
A new Art Deco building, done with taste and class. Simple, tasteful touches which enhance the property visually. We have travelled worldwide and found Aqua to be the most amazing value for money. Front office staff who actually show you to your room! Two wonderful pools (saline and chlorine), wonderful garden centre between buildings, with dining tables. BBQ facility for moonlight dining(and our amazing staff actually provided cutlery, glasses and china). We are actually returning for one more night before we leave Florida.
