“Great Experience”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

This was a great place to stay. Maggie was a great hostess - very bubbly and friendly personality - and made us feel welcome from the start, and all the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful.. The room was excellent, clean and elegantly designed, and the location was good. Great pool and comfortable beds, all at a great price. Highly recommended!

We stayed at AQUA only a couple of nights, unfortunately we had to leave sooner than we thought, but next time we will make sure to stay longer.
The atmosphere is very laid back and the location is perfect.
Immaculate room, confortable bed and very good service.

fatrim,
Thanks so much for staying with us. With multiple room types, like our one bedroom apartments that include full kitchens, extended stays at Aqua are simple. You can stay as long as you like the next time you visit! Thanks again, NBV

Family S,
We're so happy that you chose to stay at the Aqua and hope that you will return to visit very soon. Like you said, it really does have everything you need. A brand new spa, 2 pools, complimentary parking & wi-fi and rental options (bicycles and iPads) make the Aqua a pretty special place to be! Thanks so much for your review!

On our 3-week vacation in Florida with our two teenagers, this was the best hotel. Well taken cared of by hotelmanager Maggie and owner Per, we felt like beeing at home. The rooms has a scandinavian design, and best of all, no carpets on the floors! The rooms are big and the beds ar very comfortable. Our room had a big balcony where we spent time after beeing in the sun all day. The location is super, near to the beach and a short walk to lots of restaurants. Even if it´s close to great nightlife it´s very pieceful at night. We can really recomend this hotel to travellers with children. When we´re going to Ft Lauderdale again, we will definitely book a room at Aqua. Great value for money!

The Aqua will always be here for you, thanks so much for staying with us. You'll be happy to hear that we just opened a full service spa, offering massages, facials and mani/pedi's. We even have some kid-friendly options, so next year your whole family can enjoy some much deserved pampering! See you soon!

I would give The Aqua more than 5 stars if I could!

The staff is AMAZING, and promptly helps with any request.

This property was recently FULLY renovated and is kept spotless...

...we can't wait to return to this gem!

Excellent decor, it almost felt like we were the first to stay in our room. Maggie was great and very helpful. Location is awesome, great restaurants close by. Highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Ft. Lauderdale. Only one negative is that TV had only basic channels, if you have kids you would hope for more TV channels for down time in room.
