“Cool!”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

This place we found throug tripadvisor and as usually the place that have got a good score here are really worth it.

We really enjoyed the cool interior decoration of the room.Surfboard on the wall etc.The staff was really friendly and one of the best things was the heated pool. And it was really well heated I can say that1Almost felt like hot tub.Jsut perfect place for relaxing and playing with our toddler.
Also the parking was free and there wher plenty of parking places to choose from.
The beach is just few hundred meters away and there are also good restaurants such as the Plaza Bistro close by.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on third floor with sea view.

Smart, quaint, slightly retro. Very very clean. Friendly and fun. This is a new hotel run by a company that ha s values we can all share. The primary manger, Maggie (love) is a super star. She will not rest until you are restful and happy.

Been here for a week in December. The hotel is very nice and well maintained, the rooms are lovely, clean and equipped with everything you might need for your stay. The location is perfect for exploring the town (water taxi stop close by) or a day on the beach. Service is great, Maggie and her entire staff are amazing and always friendly and helpful. We would strongly recommend The Aqua to everyone who likes the small but inviting places better than the big and bustling but impersonal hotels downtown. Just come and see by yourself! To Maggie and her staff: We had a great time at The Aqua and would like to wish you the very best for 2013. Go on, you are wonderful!!!

Really enjoyed our stay at Aqua. Spotless and well equipped room, lovely pool and perfectly placed for the beach. Staff über friendly and nice to have the personal touch of the owner welcoming us, showing us to our room and giving us all the info needed.

We had a 6night stay booked at another hotel and upon arrival we walked down the road on Breaker St. there we found Plaza Bistro and our very sweet and helpful waiter Orlando told us about the Aqua Hotel just two blocks down the road owned by the North Beach Village. Once we walked back to our hotel we had an awful experience, drilling, hammering and some kind of construction work at 9pm, that went on for over an hour and after complaining twice we decided to check out and luckily we got a studio at Aqua for a fabulous rate. The Manager, Maggie was so gratuitous, helpful and serviceable that we were able to book another 2nights at the last minute.

The Aqua is clean, modern, one block off the beach, near everything on Ft. Lauderdale Beach and the best place for your money to stay.

Room Tip: Great for families, great for couples, two pools and fantastic ambience.

What you'll get is a very nice, clean, stylish room a block away from the beach and close to the bus stops/ trolley. It was quiet the two nights we stayed there. There is a wonderful place to eat called The Plaza Bistro within walking distance and with the beach right there it is a perfect place to spend a few nights if you are looking for something a little more reasonably priced without sacrificing your standards. The one and only complaint we had was that they seemed to wash the windows at 8am every morning. It wasn't a big deal but it would probably be a good idea of they waited until later in the day to do it.

We were lucky to find the Aqua so close to the beach with spacious rooms poolside and so much to see and do.Maggi is a gracious host who made us feel at home and welcome.The North Beach Village group has made an important impact to the area with small hotel renovations and an outdoor bistro. This is a great place to visit. We shall do it again.
