I recently had my 20yr high school reunion with 4 of my closest girlfriends. We decided to make it a "girls' trip and decided on the Aqua to stay. Well, let me tell you this hotel did not dissapoint! It was clean, quiet, trendy and most of all its location was perfect! Claire, the front desk concierge made us feel welcomed the first moment we arrived. I loved this quaint hotel so much that when I got back home to Louisiana I told my husband about it and we will be back! Our room was equipped with all amenities needed...kitchen, living room and whatever else we needed we just asked and received within minutes. I had such a wonderful, fabulous weekend with the girls and I have to say the Aqua Hotel had a lot to do with it!!

My lady and I went for 4th of July weekend. Very nice location near the beach. Everything was clean, the furniture was new from IKEA, and Maggie -the woman working there in the daytime- was a sweetheart and did a great job making sure we were taken care of - she even gave us frozen grapes by the pool to go with our beer, a pleasant surprise. Even the person cleaning the room was very nice. Very nice place and would recommend to others.

Jeremy W,
Thanks very much for your review and your recommendation to others. We always appreciate guest feedback. Did you the 4th of July festivities around North Beach Village? With entertainment from stilt walkers to salsa dancers, it was an awesome event. Check our facebook often for other cool events in the Village! Thanks again for your review, NBV

My wife and I needed a place to stay in Fort Lauderdale before embarking on a cruise. We picked the Aqua from reviews on Tripadvisor. What a gem!

The staff is wonderful. Juliet check us in and Stephanie worked with us the rest of the stay. Both of these ladies were outgoing, sincere in desire to help us and extremely professional. The rooms were impeccable. Our room was the newest, most updated and cleanest room I have ever stayed in, hands down. Modern facets, sinks, furniture, lighting, TV.

With just two floors and a plaza design you are not trapped in a high rise. Two pools in the size of a hotel you would expect to find one. Pools are wonderful and have showers right there as well as new pool furniture.

There are bicycles for the guests to use. The hotel is just back of the main strip and is easy walking to beach. Plenty of parking.

Here is the story. The hotel is run as part of a larger group that is revitalizing the neighborhood and has upgraded as many as six similar businesses giving the area a clean scrubbed feel. The hotel was recently gutted and completely refurbished with an eye to detail that only an involved designer would have. This place was rebuilt and designed by people with the intention of keeping this hotel for the long game as a quality establishment.

What Fun! There is a option to the overpriced restaurants at the main strip rise rose hotels nearby. In apparent conjunction with the property management there is an open air corner open air bistro with top quality food at great prices, fun atmosphere, live music for dinner. Across the street in the morning breakfast is served on a lawn with cute tables, good food, and great prices.

This place is fun! I wish I had had a reason to stay longer. Price for this value-unbelievable.

You never need an excuse to stay longer! We are happy to accommodate stays of any duration. In fact, North Beach Village Resort has vacation rentals, for guests who are in the Fort Lauderdale area for an extended period of time, and also tenant rentals, for those who would like to live full time in North Beach Village! We're so pleased you enjoyed your vacation and we hope to see you soon!

We are locals and wanted to get away for the July 4th holiday weekend, but not leave town. I found Aqua Hotel online and we couldn't have been more pleased. The newly-renovated (2012) rooms and facilities were lovely; having two pools (one fresh, the other light saltwater) was great and the grounds very conducive to just lounging and socializing. The staff, especially Maggie, was attentive and friendly; she even brought us frozen grapes at the pool on a hot afternoon! We will definitely choose the Aqua again when we just want to get away and relax!

On our way down to Miami and a flight back home, we needed a Place to stay for 2 nights. Found this hotel on tripadvisor and booked it! Everything people say in their Reviews are true. This is a perfect Place! Maggie is really nice, and so are the rest of the staff too. Spotless Clean, the pool was perfect, the garden- Everything was just so nice. Perfect location to the beach and the restaurants. If we ever go to Fort Lauderdale again- we will be back. Will definitely tell others about this Place.

We where Lucky to stay 3 (not contiguous) nights in The Aqua Hotel.
This is a perfect place to stay in Fort Lauderdale. You can easily walk to the beach but the hotel also provides bike rental. Around the hotel is enough free parking space.
The hotel is very new, equipped with all comforts and spotless clean. Rooms are nicely decorated and look so fresh.
The staff is very very welcoming and all the reviews below about Maggie are absolutely true. What a lovely person who knows how to enjoy life! Her enthusiasm is fantastic and during one of the hot days she provided us with frozen grapes while sunbathing at one of the 2 swimming pools, Yummy!! We liked how small the hotel is, this makes it not to busy and private.
Anyway, have no doubs, this is an absolute fantastic place to stay with a carefree stay guaranteed!

Juuls27,
What a nice review, thanks so much! Individually, our hotels are intimate, with only 15-30 rooms, but our collection, with over 500 rooms spread across multiple hotels, can accommodate very large groups. It's the best of both worlds. We're always very happy to help choose the perfect spot in North Beach Village Resort! Thanks again, NBV

From the moment we arrived, we were impressed by this little place. Maggie was a wonderful hostess, and gave us a tour of the place before showing us to our room, as if it were her home. The entire property is newly renovated, including the 2 pools (one of them saltwater). The room was spotless, and offered a microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. Ipod-docking alarm clock in room, as well as a laptop safe. Pool/beach towels provided in every room. Bike rental, as well as beach chair and umbrellas available as well (kept us from having to pay the rental fees at the beach). Literally one block from the beach. Floating mats and noodles available at the (front) pool for our use, and Maggie offered frozen grapes at poolside. FREE parking. I only wish that we had been able to stay for more than our single night. Maggie asked us to "come back and stay with me longer next time", and we assured her that we planned to! Our only wish was that the window had sheers on them, and not just the curtains; we loved the natural light, but didn't want everyone at the pool peering into our room (on the first floor pool level).

Room Tip: Maybe on the second floor of the building, to keep pool goers from seeing in the room. Otherwise, a...
