"Great Location - Great Hotel - Great Staff"
The hotel was a very clean modern style hotel. We had 3 rooms and each one was different but had the same full amenities such as full size fridge, stovetop to cook on, microwave, sink and even dishes. This was a nice addition to the room. The beach was just a block away, a very short walk. Great place to stay. Maggie in the office was AWESOME!!!!

"Awesome Staff and Super Clean"
Staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Check in was a breeze, took about 2 minutes. Rooms were extremely clean, grounds very compact but very clean and comfortable. No food or drink vending machines, so bring your own but kitchenettes have everything needed to bring in what you like. Grill in the courtyard, obviously cleaned on a regular basis. Very much enjoyed the stay and again, such a very friendly and kind staff!

"Nice place—simple but did the trick"
This is not a high end hotel—but it was clean and well designed, and the check-in guy (name was actually Guy) was very nice and helpful. Steps away you'll find the Hilton and other beachfront places that charge 2-3 times as much. Stay here and go frequent their bars and restaurants. More scratch for fun!

"Small, small, small room."
We booked expedia which we always do with no problems. When we arrived at 2:10 we were told our room was ready but since we booked expedia we would have to wait until 3:00 for the key or pay $25.00. We booked a king but they kept telling us since we booked expedia they only offer queen but they had upgraded up to a king...wrong. We had our paperwork showing KING. They told us we should never book expedia. We explained we would have never known about their hotel if we hadn't booked expedia. We were made to feel very low class because we were expedia customers. The room was only large enough for one person. You couldn't open the bathroom door with the refrigerator door open. One of us would have to sit while the other was up so we would not bump into each other.

"Very nice Retro Hotel."
As we stayed only 1 night, the price was right even though the room was rather small in size. They have 2 pools and efficiency units available. It was within walking distance to restaurants and bars. If you are planning on staying more than 1 night, I would recommend asking about room sizes when booking and pay more.

Room was a little small but clean and nicely decorated and from the looks of it recently remodeled. Dissapointed in the wifi not working and even after mentioning it to staff on first day, and told they would call their internet "guy" . After 3 nights (plenty of time to resolve the issue) no follow up and no opology...still didnt work. I was very dissapointed because i had some work to catch up on and couldnt :(

"Quirky, but very nice hotel"
We had a broken window in our room, but Andrew switched us to another room quickly. It was even better! While we had a few minor problems which were fixed quickly, overall this hotel surpassed our needs, and was very clean. We enjoyed our stay. The set-up of the 1-bedroom suite is very nice. My son (22) was with us, so having him on the sofa bed in the living room worked very well. I wish the bathroom was just a bit larger and that the door lock was more security appropriate. The hotel is close both to the Bonnet House which we really enjoyed and the beach which was great too. The office has no phone number for you to call, but all the employees who work there are very nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

A new Art Deco building, done with taste and class. Simple, tasteful touches which enhance the property visually. We have travelled worldwide and found Aqua to be the most amazing value for money. Front office staff who actually show you to your room! Two wonderful pools (saline and chlorine), wonderful garden centre between buildings, with dining tables. BBQ facility for moonlight dining(and our amazing staff actually provided cutlery, glasses and china). We are actually returning for one more night before we leave Florida.

"Great stay at the Aqua hotel"
Really enjoyed our stay at the Aqua Hotel. Everything was very clean and the staff was very helpful. The hotel itself had two pools, and was within a block or so of the beach. There weren't many restaurants or shops within walking distance of the hotel, but we had a car so that was not a problem. The hotel has plenty of parking spaces, and also has a very nice courtyard area, with adirondak chairs and a grill that guests can use. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area.

My wife and I completed a 15 day cruise and called the Aqua for an early check in. They were wonderful. They told us we were welcome to arrive early and our room was ready when we got there. We were in Ft. Lauderdale for the first time and Maggie was very helpful in her recommendations for activities. We have traveled extensively and the Aqua Hotel is one of the best. It is CLEAN, well maintained, with friendly, helpful staff and a great location. We will stay there again!

"5 Star Service and Cleanliness"
After reading all the awesome reviews of Aqua I had high expectations and they were certainly met. Let me tell you a story about why Aqua is so awesome. I came to Ft. Lauderdale Thursday night of Labor Day weekend to visit a few friends I have that live there with my boyfriend from Chicago. Since we got in so late Thursday night we planned on crashing with my friend and then checking in on Friday to check out Monday morning. The only problem was that my friend has a cat and I am VERY allergic to cats, but figured a few hours sleeping at her place wouldn't be a big deal. I was WRONG. I woke up at 4AM with hives all over me and my eye swollen almost shut. I didn't want my vacation ruined by my allergies so I called Aqua at 4AM and asked if I could come early. The NICEST guy ever, Michael answered the phone and told me to come on over with my boyfriend and that he would take care of us. By the time we got there it was almost 5AM (had to wait for a cab, pack, etc). Michael greeted us, empathized with me as he has a cat allergy and got us all situated in our room. He told us someone named Maggie would help us get our room keys and formally checked-in in the morning. The next morning around 10AM I went to the office and this very happy woman greeted me and asked me: "Are you Sarah." I'm like how do you know my name already? I guess Michael told her our situation and she was expecting me! Talk about service!

The area is quiet and a block from the beach. At arrival the room we had rented had no working AC. Once I notified the staff they immediately sprung into action and upgraded us to a bigger room and made sure we were satisfied. The grounds are super clean and immaculate. The decor is surfer chic and the rooms are extremely clean. I will definitely be staying here again and again!

"Super Cool, Cozy and Clean"
We absolutely loved our too short of a stay at the Aqua. We stayed in the King Suite with our eight year old daughter. The room/apt was bright, super clean with a modern beach vibe and a kitchen equipped with everything you would need- including real wine glasses and fridge. The staff could not have been anymore courteous and helpful- Maggie got us into our room early when we made our last minute get-a-way plans...so we could enjoy it more completely. We will definitely be returning to Aqua again soon and would highly recommend it!

"Great staff, clean rooms, close to everything"
I originally booked my stay at another hotel and quickly regretted my decision. Luckily I was able to walk 1 block from the beach and book at the Aqua Hotel. My first encounter was with Maggie Guest Relations Manager. She was amazing! She saw I was grasping at my last straw and accommodated me last minute. She took her time and spoke with me- very good people skills! The rooms are pristine as well as the pools and property grounds. I will be bringing my daughter back with me next time and highly recommend this hotel!

"A pretentious motel painted white inside and out."
There is nothing awful about this place but they don't have phones in the room and when I asked if it was a mistake that my room had no phone the manager haughtily told me "It is a modern hotel." Well la di da....I have stayed in places fancier and more modern than this refurbished motel and they don't give you attitude about everything. Also because it was once a cheap motel (as opposed to now being an expensive motel) the walls are thin. The staff smiles a lot but knows nothing and can't help with the most elementary of requests. Internet and outdoor parking are included so that is good but they don't have enough parking spaces for all the rooms so there can be problems on busy nights....they have to shuttle people to other properties for parking.

Even though I was there during spring break, the hotel is tucked away so that you feel isolated from the crowds. The room is very quiet considering how close you are to the beach and A1A.
