Where not to stay......AqUa Hotel in Ft Lauderdale

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Staff attitude, service, new mattresses, security would be good.
When checking into my assigned room, the fire alarm sensor was going off and it took them more than 3 hours to come fix it. The smallest room in the US with no view to the outside. The window was bl0cked with an opaque film. Cannot open the door fully. The towels they provided had holes in them the first two nights and it took them till 5 pm to make up my room after I brought there attntion to it. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. Instead of m0vign me to an0thrr room , the resort was at least 70% occupied for the Saturday night.

Pros: Location, staff and overall condition.
Cons: Floors should be thoroughly cleaned often - If you walk with bare feet, they will be black in no time.
Location: Great restaurants, beach, boating and downtown Ft. L isn't far.
Nice place, but the floors have been filthy both in July when we stayed several nites, and this past week.

Nice hotel in walking distance to the beach

Posted Jul 30, 2017
Very pleasant stay at Aqua Hotel. The service was excellent and the room was very clean, except for the small ants in the kitchen, they kept coming back. Location was good walking distance to restaurants and easy beach access. No access to a fitness facility, but it is a nice place to stay. The staff were friendly. Would stay again.

Great location and excellent service

Posted Jul 30, 2017
Loved staying here. Very close to the beach. Rooms are very modern and clean. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate guests. Pools are very well kept. Kitchenette very convenient. BBQ pits are fully equipped. Really loved staying here. Would definitely recommend Aqua to friends and family and would love to come back here again. Stephanie at front desk is so friendly and so accommodating.

Nice value hotel

Posted Jul 28, 2017
Pros: The hotel was quiet, close to the beach, and we loved that they offered chairs and umbrellas to take to the beach. The kitchenette was very useful.
Cons: The tiling in the bathroom was grungy. Our sheets were freshly laundered, however, they were quite stained.
Location: The beach is approximately one block from the hotel. There are also some small shops within walking distance for groceries and beverages.
This hotel is a cute boutique style hotel. It is not a luxury hotel by any means but it is comfortable and the price is right. There are several hotels near the Aqua that have nice dining options. The Hilton for example is half a block away and has a wonderful sushi restaurant. The Aqua is located a block from the beach and offers chairs and umbrellas to borrow for the day. At the beach chairs are $12 and umbrellas are $20 to rent, so this is quite a savings to take advantage of. A Lyft from the airport to the hotel is $15 or less. There is no need to rent a car if you're just going to the beach to hang out.

Good stay

Posted Jul 7, 2017 on Hotels
Check in is just one person for multiple properties, so it took a bit longer than it should have. Room was clean and well appointed. Property reminded me of a Melrose Place episode; everyone hanging outside their rooms and along the pool, having their coffee and saying hello. A/C was quite loud, which is ok if it just stayed on, but the fan would go on and off, which sounded a bit like a Mack truck being started in your room every few minutes. It kept my husband up. Property was a block and a half from the beach, lots of restaurants nearby, good neighborhood, staff was friendly. We had a nice stay and would stay again (in a different room).

Very clean, well kept hotel with a cheerful staff.

Posted Jul 7, 2017
Our family had a relaxing, enjoyable time unwinding at the Aqua. Thinking about it puts a smile on my face. The beach is just a block away, beautiful! Restaurants are in walking distance. We made use of the hotel pools on days when the oceanfront was too windy and dark clouds hovered. I hope to return again soon.

Mediocre

Posted Jul 2, 2017
Not impressed. Several issues on my stay. Not a bad place for families that have kids with them.
