“Simply the best there is”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

I am a frequent traveler and have yet to write a review on Tripadvisor. However after our family's recent stay at the Acqualina, I just had to do something. Let me first say that I am a hotel snob--I have high expectations and am not easily impressed. The Acualina was, for lack of a better word, perfect. The ENTIRE hotel staff were by far the most pleasant, approachable and accommodating that I have ever encountered. They all went out of their way to make sure that my family and I enjoyed our entire experience. There was no request too small or too insignificant--they were more than happy to help!

Just one example (though there are countless others)--my toddler son had an "accident" on his favorite blanket about an hour before his bedtime--and he needs that blanket to sleep! we called the hotel housekeeping and they immediately came up to our room and took the blanket, washed and dried it, and we had it back within an hour. This was at 8:00 PM. and they didn't even charge us! It's service like this that can really take a vacation to the next level!

Aside from the amazing service the resort itself is simply outstanding. Our suite was beautifully decorated and stacked with all sorts of amenities. The beach/pool are were impeccable in cleanliness and the water was super warm, which made swimming on a 68 degree day real easy. also, unlike some other hotels, it didn't feel like we were in a museum or a convention center. My wife and I could watch the kids swim in the pool or play basketball on the nearby court from the comfort of our room.

All in all, by far our most relaxing and rewarding vacation ever. we can't wait to hopefully come back again next year!

The Aqualina is located on the beach at Sunny Isles, Miami Beach. It has all facilities to a nice season on the beach side of Miami. The rooms are big, well equiped and very nice decoration. It has 2 restaurants one of the them Il Molino that is one of the best in the área. But the best part of the hotel are the swimming pools and the beach infrastructure that are very nice. It is na ideal hotel to a Family vacation on the beach.

Room Tip: All rooms are in front of the beach with nice balcony.

This is a beautiful classic style hotel on hotel row in north Miami. The hotel successfully combines permanent residents with hotel guests. The staff is outstanding and are all graduates of the "good manners" school. The food is not only beautiful but delicious. There are many foreign guests and lots of security. One fun item is the parking area near the front, it looks like a luxury car show place, I saw several guests taking pictures of the cars. The rooms are lovely in beige tones, my only negative comment is that they hung the same art work in both rooms of the suite. This is a 5 star ++ hotel.

Room Tip: Your choice is ocean or intercostal water way, both lovely views but intercostal while a little less...

I've traveled to many places and this hotel is the best.The decor,service,and food are top of line.The rooms are immaculate!!! We always get ocean view on the high floor.Never had a problem with anything here and we have been here more than 3 times.Don't forget the spa!!!Great prices and it's just beautiful in there.This is my top pick for spas in all of states.Very clean!I love it here from the beach to the rooms.We got stuck here during a hurricane once and it was the best place to ever be during a storm.We are coming back in February for the food and wine festival in Miami.You get what you pay for here and remember 5 stars is not cheap.My son who is nine loves it so much and always compares it to other hotels.They have cooking classes for the kids and many other activities for them to do.

Although our rooms weren't in the best location, facing the intracoastal which meant that the noise from the road was too loud to have the doors open or sit on the balcony, they were beautifully appointed and had superb bathrooms. We were on the 4 for 3 package, and being members of LHW, qualified for the complimentary continental breakfast, which was nice. However we weren't offered an upgrade.
The staff were second to none, and couldn't have been more helpful. Overall a very pleasant stay.

We stayed at the resort for a long birthday weekend and had the most amazing experience! The hotel is exquisite, beautifully decorated and the suite we reserved was one of the most comfortably appointed. upon arrival, we found the kitchen had magically been prepped with almost every delectable amenity we could have asked for! The staff is equally if not even more impressive! To cater to every whim to include anticipating your every need is apparent and seemingly effortless! We had the most amazing weekend and have each of the staff to Thank for making it such a memorable experience!! To those avid TA Reviewers, we highly recommend that you too relish in the splendor that is Acqualina!!

My husband and I stayed at the Acqualina Resort for 8 nights in December, 2013. Because it's under the umbrella of Leading Hotels of the World, they told us it would be worth our while to join LHW so that we'd get an automatic room upgrade and continental breakfast. Also, LHW had a stay 4/pay 3 nights Special Offer. This made our nightly rate average much more affordable and attractive, considering what their nightly rates usually are! However, when we tried to get the automatic upgrade we were promised, as our room was on the Intracoastal side and you could barely see any water view at all, they told us none were available.
It wasn't until we threatened to leave that we were given an Oceanview Room. From that point onward we just loved everything about the Acqualina. Such security -- something we've truly never experienced before!
Just loved sitting on the red sofas and comfy chairs just off the beach but overlooking the ocean.
The Staff were so friendly and just couldn't do enough for us.
Would return again in a heart-beat -- especially if we can take advantage of the one night free offer!

Room Tip: Though the Intracoastal rooms have separate living rooms, the view cannot compare to the Oceanview R...
