“Cute, quaint, quiet and relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Stayed at The Aqua 5/16 and 5/17. Entering the check in office, was greeted by a very perky and wonderful young lady, Maggie. Maggie was ready for us when we arrived, had our information and it took about 2 minutes to check in.

Maggie was wonderful and asked if we needed any information about anything, which we really didn't having visited Lauderdale several times in the past. But she was ready and very willing to help with anything we needed during our stay. It was an extremely pleasant experience, having just sat in a car dealership four hours prior to getting to the hotel and was in a bit of a foul mood when we got there, but Maggie sure changed all that for us!

Maggie was also able to recommend transportation to and from the Cher concert the following Saturday evening. The experience with the driver, Jimmy from Jimmy's Transportation Service was also wonderful - will have to get a review out here for him as well!

On Saturday, there was a different lady in the office, though I did not get her name. She was also very awesome...As a matter of fact, the entire staff, housekeeping maintenance....were all such wonderful folks and really made you feel very welcome there!

LOVED it and would recommend it to all and will likely book there again.

Thanks Maggie and all the staff at The Aqua!

Room Tip: Get a room facing one of the pools to cut down on traffic noise - no food or food vending machines o...

ExcaliburMarathon,
Maggie is here whenever you need a mood-changer, she's very good at that! We love our guests and are so happy that it shows. No request is too much, and we will do whatever it takes to keep accommodate our guests. We appreciate the review, thanks so much for staying with us!

We stayed to this hotel only one night with our 2 years old daughter. It is a very beautiful, newly renoved hotel close to the beach. The staff is really nice. There is 2 pools that are very nice too. Nothing to say except that we ask for a playpen and they charge 50$ a night for it which I found is a little bit to expensive. We had the one bedroom with king bed room and it was perfect. Full kitchenette and separate living room.

Room Tip: Our room was perfect, it was located on the first floor just in front of the pool.

myyr,
We're so pleased that you and your family enjoyed Aqua. It's a great place, especially for those little ones, with the gated courtyard area and plenty of space to run around. We really appreciate your review and hope that you will be able to visit us again soon!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Aqua - spotless (and I mean spotless!) rooms in a nice setting 2 mins stroll from the beach. Bars and restaraunts are a 10 minute walk so the area is pretty quiet.

Would be very happy to stay again.

mdstephenson,
Thanks so much for the great review. You're right, Aqua is a great place. Close enough to the beach, bars and restaurants but tucked just far enough away, making it nice and quiet. We hope that you will stay with us again. Take care, NBV

A charming hotel a couple of blocks off the main thoroughfare. Impeccable customer service. They make each guest feel as if they are the only guest in the hotel. Only 39 rooms so it's quiet and personal. Two pools, both small but nice. We were there for a family reunion of sorts and the staff went out of their way, above and beyond, to ensure that we had a memorable stay. The hotel is very clean. Although there is no on-site restaurant, the staff directed us to several eateries, some within walking distance. They arranged a driver for us to the airport. Definitely value for the $ and we'd absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Some rooms back to the side streets - avoid these if you want a quiet room. Our room was tucked into...

Let me start by saying, I'm in the Pet hotel business, so i'm very picky and expect great service and a good experience where ever I go- OFTEN, I'm dissappointed, BUT NOT HERE- My boyfriend and I arrived early after getting off a cruise- Maggie was awesome and directed us down the street to eat breakfast- (that place was bad) but everything else was great- we got back, she had our room ready- It was a super cute modern and beachy type room, with nice aqua accents- it has a fridge and microwave, coffee maker, ect- a nice sized room that was very cute and CLEAN-
There are two nice pools- the pools have Frontgate comfy rafts in them to use- HEAVEN!!! Then Maggie came around with eucalyptis and lavender cold washclothes that smelled so good- Great touch- loved it too- and then came around a little later with wine- DID I MENTION THE SERVICE WAS OUTSTANDING-

TO THE OWNER- AS A BUSINESS OWNER MYSELF- I WOULD DIE TO HAVE AN EMPLOYEE LIKE MAGGIE- YOU BETTER GIVE HER 10 RAISES A YEAR AND NEVER LET THAT LADY LEAVE YOUR PROPERTY- I THOUGHT IT WAS HER PLACE SHE WAS SO GOOD- SHE KNEW ALL THE CUSTOMERS STAYING, AND WENT MILES OUT OF HER WAY TO MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY- SHE IS HUGE ASSET TO THIS PLACE- DID I MENTION- GIVE THIS WOMAN A RAISE- AND KEEP HER FOR LIFE- WE ALREADY REBOOKED IN NOVEMBER PRE/POST CRUISE STAY!!

ALSO, we had no rental car the first night and the gentleman at the front counter suggested the best pizza place and then ran down and picked up our pizza for us too cause they didn't deliver- where do you get that service? no where but the AQUA HOTEL-

We were there during spring break too- it was not noisy, not too many kids, just quiet and relaxing- close to places to walk and great little rental car place right up the street- We weren't gonna rent a car, but the gal made us a great deal for 2 days and it was cheaper then taking a taxi to the airport- check that place out too if you need a rental-

I think that wraps it up- you will not be sorry- rates are cheap too considering other hotels- they also have chairs you can take to the beach-

We had 2 nights here (one pool side ground floor double, and one huge corner room on the 1st floor). Everything perfect from start to finish. 3 minute walk to the beach. Hotel spotless and staff really friendly and helpful (sorting taxis, giving us free water etc)... Would definitely recommend and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Corner room on the 1st floor was brilliant.

This beautiful boutique hotel has everything you need for a getaway! Quiet, comfortable, clean and just a block from the beach. Maggie, the manager, made us feel welcome from the moment we checked in. She is helpful and accommodating! The smaller personal atmosphere is just what we were looking for and The Aqua Hotel delivered!
