“Exceptional 5 star service and well worth the expense”
Reviewed 21 June 2010

I just came back from a weekend at the resort and spa and it could not have been better. Although it is the upper end of most budgets, if you really want to spoil yourself, do it here. The spa services were amazing and they have a vast number of treatments. Their spa products are exceptional. When not in the spa, my friend and I lounged at the wonderfully maintained beach and were treated like queens, from being set up at our beach chairs to the refreshments. We were asked constantly whether we needed anything and did not feel bombarded by the service at any time. The rooms were beautiful and had everything you needed, including a wonderful turn down service. There were a lot of extras that were free, which were appreciated as from my experience at other hotels, if you pay less for the room, they will charge you for every extra item you use.

Wow is all I can say about our stay here at Aqualina Resort we have stayed at Several Sandals Resorts but this one takes the cake. Staff go way out of their way to serve you and make your stay so comfortable from the time you drive up to when you check in everyone you pass is polite and courteous. Anything you ask for is not problem they love to serve you the Rooms are breathtaking and the beach is gorgeous. We are so pleased with the Staff here I gotta name them off Alejandra @ the concierge she is wonderful always ready to serve and accomodate as well as Rachel she is super nice they both treat people like they would like to be treated. The facility is Pristine and top of the line with their Robes and Slippers and huge towels I loved it!! We Recommend this place hands down we will be back next year for sure!!Cant wait.

Spent anniversary with my with here. Excellent service. Beautiful suite...overlooking the Atlantic. Spa is wonderful...pricey but not outrageous. Very helpful staff. Our flight on Sunday was cancelled and we did not have the right power-cords. They lent us their personal chargers.

All in all a very well done, first rate hotel.

Il Mulino dinner was well worth it. As good, if not better than its NYC counterpart.

I have traveled the world over and have never experienced the high level of perfection as I did at the Acqualina. It started with a glass of champagne while I was checking in, and ended with a cold bottle of water to take with me when I checked out.

I wish every hotel manager in the world could spend one night at the Acqualina to see what true service entails! It is truly unbelieveable! You MUST experience it for yourself!

The Acqualina is a beautiful hotel but it is very expensive. The continental breakfast was the best we have ever seen. The 3 spa services we experienced were excellent. The beach is perfectly maintained and well staffed. It's a great resort for families with children. The rooms are big and well equipped. The restaurants are high priced and you could probably eat as well in the neighborhood.

Rising above 400 feet of beachfront is the Acqualina Resort and Spa in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. The resort stands within four miles of premier shopping at Aventura Mall and the Bal Harbour Shops. Transportation is provided to Bal Harbour Shops. Hotel Features. Mediterranean charm is evident on the resort grounds, with iron gates, fountains, sculpted archways and a porte cochere with a domed cupola. Acqualina's signature restaurant, the Mediterranean inspired Aaria, offers indoor and outdoor dining, elegant breakfasts and lunches, and dinners out on the oceanfront veranda.

We have been to Miami area at least once a year for the past 5 years and always wanted to try Acqualina Resort. Unfortunately, the price was usually the thing that held us back as it was usually double of what other top hotels charged. This year we decided it was time to splurge. Acqualina did not disappoint. It was all you should expect from a top of the line hotel/resort. From great, attentive and personalized service to luxurious accommodations, wonderful large guestrooms, unbelievable Spa and Fitness facilities, pool and restaurant areas and plush and always attentive beach comfort. My wife and I enjoyed our vacation to the fullest and can honestly say that we got our money's worth and then some. Acqualina truly reflects a saying "You get what you pay for". I hope we can come back there again and again...and soon :)
