Mixed FeelingsPosted Mar 22, 2017
Pros: It was near the beach and the pool area was very nice.
Cons: Scrub, scrub, scrub the floors. Fix the doors so they don't rattle with the wind!
Location: Near the beach, but not really much to do.
This hotel was very expensive for what it was. The room has a grungy feel and the floors felt like they had cooking oil on them. It kind of made my skin crawl. The wind blew the whole time we were there (not the hotel's fault obviously) which made the door rattle very badly--kept me awake every night. The staff was kind of unprofessional in my opinion, although the lady at the front desk was very nice. The cleaner just barged in when we were still in the room and didn't leave when she realized we were in there--we had to get out of the room! Just strange. On the positive side, great location a block from the beach and a few blocks from great restaurants (not the one associated with them--it's expensive and grungy was well). Our room was 10 feet from the pool and the pool area was great. You would need a car to get to the mall and any amount of shopping. Overall, I have come to realize that I like chain hotels and feel more comfortable in those settings. This kind of hotel just isn't for me.

Aqua Hotel NorthBeach Village resort -coming back!Posted Mar 2, 2017
Pros: That Maggie made us feel so comfortable and worry free about our double booked room, and took care of all the details to clear this matter up.
Cons: Nothing -- Wonderful Place to stay !
Location: Within walking distance to a variety of fine dining restaurants, pub fare and recognized fast food restaurants, shopping and beach -just 1 block away.
Lovely surroundings and only a block away from the beautiful beaches of Fort Lauderdale. We were warmly greeted by Maggie Martino, Guest Services Agent at Aqua Hotel, North Beach Village Resort and we knew instantly that we loved this hotel. Her upbeat, and friendly personality let us know that we were in a great spot for our vacation stay. Unsure how we did it, but we somehow booked this hotel twice for the same night, and Maggie was our saving grace to untangle this situation with Expedia and ensure that we had no worries and could enjoy our vacation relaxing instead of being on the phone trying to sort it out or having to deal with it when we returned from vacation. Many thanks to you Maggie !!! We will be back !!! The pools were clean, warm and easily accessible for a spot to sunbathe or swim or both. The gardens or outside sitting areas were extremely well maintained as was the entire hotel facility.

Five star rooms in a no-frills propertyPosted Feb 2, 2017
Pros: Staff, cleanliness, dehumidifiers in the room, modern furniture, location.
Cons: Bed sheets were cheap/paper-like. Nicer sheets would be good. Also the added parking fee wasn't great. Only $10 but still...
Very clean and modern for a no-frills property. Hotel staff are super friendly and available. The dehumidifiers in the rooms were an added pleasure... so important in maintaining comfortable air quality in humid FL without cranking the ac on and freezing. More hotels need to have these!
Excellent HotelPosted Jan 20, 2017 on Hotels
Very surprised to see the hotel and management team making this equivalent to a 3-4 Star Hotel. Very clean and convenient parking.

Great location, fun theme, good valuePosted Dec 19, 2016 on Hotels
Maggie was the best at check in! Accommodating, funny, and vet personable. She even upgraded us to a king bed due to so many cancellations. I would definitely stay here again for the staff, affordability aspect and close proximity to the beach.
