The hotel was just what I needed at the time. I felt pampered! :)

Pros: Free Internet
I have always wanted to give myself a treat in a lovely Beach Resort. Acqualina was just more than the treat I needed. I loved every single second of my stay there! The staff made me feel like a queen. And the environment/facilities....just too fab! I will go there over and over and over again!

Beautiful scenery inside and out...

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, turndown service twice a day, very clean spacious suites
Cons: no free continental breakfast at all.
Wonderful room, staff, and beach access. Everything was first class all the way, every staff member went out oof their way to be cordial except for one valet out front. When I voiced a concern about him the hotel rectified the situation immediately. This was the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I loved every minute and I cant wait to go back!

Amazing hotel stay but a little far from miami attractions

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close
Recently stayed at this hotel and it was very nice. Very spacious rooms, and beautiful decor. They even had a chest with a hidden flat screen that pops up and spins with the touch of a button. Pool an beach front were also beautifully kept. The only down side was the distance from the Miami nightlife. We had to drive a bit of distance for all our activities.

This hotel was opulent, yet comforting.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
The hotel itself was gorgeous. The staff was amazing and attentive. The food was magnificent. We felt like movie stars! The beaches were clean and inviting, and the spa was just wonderful. It was a great, pampering, and relaxing trip.

Top 3 Trips Ever

Pros: Quiet
My wife and I escaped our two children for a 3-day weekend. WEe love going to the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area and wanted to stay somewhere we never had before. I researched online and found a great weekend deal at the Acqualina Resort. We arrived to the most beautifully designed unique hotel. The staff was overly welcoming and helpful and made the weekend wonderful. From the luxurious rooms, to the well-designed pool area, to the spa and the restaurants, my wife and I had a trip we will never forget. It was perfect and we hope to return soon.

My cousin and I vacationed at the Acqualina in 2009 for a girls spa getaway for a few days and words cannot capture the level of extravagance supreme hospitality and pure bliss that we experienced during our stay. From the moment you enter the hotel lobby your wish is the staffs every command. The website accurately depicts the hotel property in every way. Our room was something out of HGTV..chique modern elegant and plush. Housekeeping visits several times a day to replenish the room. The service is impeccable. Every dime spent at this resort was well worth it. The spa facilities are beautiful and serene and we indulged in two spa treatments a piece. Spa staff great you with a relaxing fruity drink and cool towel with cucumber to begin your spa encounter. And the perks!!! Dont be surprised if you order room service and it NOT show up on your bill or if you visit one of the restaurants and that not show up on your bill. You truly feel welcomed as the staff make a point to learn your name and greet you by name when you are in eyesight. The list goes on and on. I LOVE THIS PLACE and YOU WILL TOO!!

My friend and I stayed at the resort over the Memorial Day weekend and we were treated like princesses. Everyone was so pleasant and courteous and accommodated to our every needs. The location of the hotel was breath taking and unbeatable! It was right on the water. The beach was pristine and well kept. The foods, spa, bars were top notch. We really didn't have anything to complained about. Definitely recommended to all those who are looking to be pampered and spoiled! I am definitely going to stay there again whenever I can.

Second stay

Just stayed at the Acqualina for the second time in four months. Hotel is beautiful! Ocean views from our room were amazing. Staff went above and beyond our expectations--the girl at the front desk even babysat our toddler one evening so my spouse and I could have a quiet dinner alone. Highly recommended hotel.

Very Impressed

The service at the front desk was impeccable.The response to our wish of being on the top floor was ""it will be our pleasure"".We were upgraded to their best suite located on the 28th floor at no charge just by asking.The view was spectacular and by being so high we were spared from the street trafic noise. The hotel exceeded our expectations.
